BERLIN - A European rabbinical group is protesting a mobile app of the notorious anti-Semitic text "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion."

Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt, president of the Brussels-based Conference of European Rabbis, said in a statement Tuesday that he would contact Apple to urge that the company remove the app.

The app, which was released earlier this year, is available only in Arabic and is attributed to the software developer Ahmed Elserety.

Goldschmidt believes it is "the first mobile version of the famous anti-Semitic work," which was first published in Russia in the early 20th century.
