Copies of the anti-Semitic Protocols of the Elders of Zion were on sale at Lakemba Mosque on Sunday.

The Australian newspaper reported that copies of the hoax document were on sale in the bookshop of the mosque in western Sydney during an open day designed to dispel myths about Islam.

Volunteers at the store claimed they were not responsible for choosing the books, whose sales help fund the mosque. A spokesman for the mosque said he hoped that the staff would exert more control over what is stocked on the shelves.

Lakemba mosque is home to the controversial Sheikh Tajeddin al-Hilaly, the former mufti of Australia.
