REVILO PENDLETON OLIVER (pictured above) was my friend and my mentor, and one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, fully on a par with . Mencken, and one of our nation’s most incisive thinkers of any period. This month and next I will be presenting a series of his most important works on this broadcast. Today we begin with an extract of his posthumously-published book,  The Jewish Strategy , which I have given the editorial title of “The Jewish Plague, part 1.” This piece deals with the most momentous issue of all time: the challenge to our very existence posed by the Jewish power structure and the ideologies it has spawned. I give you the words of Revilo P. Oliver:

There were eight excellent workshops from Dr Tanya Kant and Dr Victoria Grace Walden (Sussex) and Dr Theo Koulouris and Dr Ryan Burns (Brighton) on contemporary media issues but linked to content of the new specifications. We ended the event with a TeachMeet set of peer led presentations sharing of practice. We heard about innovative partnerships between schools and media practitioners (Tom Misenti), the value of international educational trips (Jessica Hallissey) and colleagues from Uckfield took us through a mobile phone piece of practical work (Carla Taylor and Chris Beaumont). The full list of workshops is available here: ‪ /y75764x2 ‬‬‬

A third serious setback was Egypt. The collapse of Hosni Mubarak’s regime in 2011, amid giant protests, raised hopes that democracy would spread in the Middle East. But the euphoria soon turned to despair. Egypt’s ensuing elections were won not by liberal activists (who were hopelessly divided into a myriad of Pythonesque parties) but by Muhammad Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood. Mr Morsi treated democracy as a winner-takes-all system, packing the state with Brothers, granting himself almost unlimited powers and creating an upper house with a permanent Islamic majority. In July 2013 the army stepped in, arresting Egypt’s first democratically elected president, imprisoning leading members of the Brotherhood and killing hundreds of demonstrators. Along with war in Syria and anarchy in Libya, this has dashed the hope that the Arab spring would lead to a flowering of democracy across the Middle East.
