    Elders of Zion.  Forgive me, the name "Zion" reminds me of a right wing cult.  I'm a knowledgeable skeptic.

      Do you mean the Elders of Zion Daily Kos group?  It is a group dedicated to Jewish issues.

      Or do you mean the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion?  It was an antisemitic hoax claiming to be the minutes of Jews conspiring to control the world, published at the end of the 19th century.  To this day, many people don't realize it was a hoax and think it was true.

      Not sure what you mean about Zion sounding like a right wing cult.  Zion is a mountain in Israel, and for a long time it has been used as a metonym for the Jewish people.
