Italian Italians are liars and vile and traitors He says like with plants crossing if you cross a French with a Hebrew you have the present Republic IIINevertheless he s got nothing against the Hebrew

marvelous 19th century illustrations from the author s archive that help a lot understanding the plot or the story if you will2 Due to Simone s likings the book is truly a cookeries compendium menus abound Protocols 1912 edition3 It s really historically thick the plot ahead Simone will visit many places will kill Abbot Piccola many adventures ahead even with protestant Diana But the core of the book may lie in the The Protocols of the Elders of Zion in fact according to several sources they are a lie Eco refers 1925 Hitler s book Mein Kampf and the London Times of 1921 both indicating a
