Stalin’s Jews

And us, the Jews? An Israeli student finishes high school without ever hearing the name “Genrikh Yagoda,” the greatest Jewish murderer of the 20th Century, the GPU’s deputy commander and the founder and commander of the NKVD. Yagoda diligently implemented Stalin’s collectivization orders and is responsible for the deaths of at least 10 million people. His Jewish deputies established and managed the Gulag system

.

In his Book “Stalin: Court of the Red Star”, Jewish historian Sebag Montefiore writes that during the darkest period of terror, when the Communist killing machine worked in full force, Stalin was surrounded by beautiful, young Jewish women.

Stalin’s close associates and loyalists included member of the Central Committee and Politburo Lazar Kaganovich. Montefiore characterizes him as the “first Stalinist” and adds that those starving to death in Ukraine, an unparalleled tragedy in the history of human kind aside from the Nazi horrors and Mao’s terror in China, did not move Kaganovich.

Lazar was a Jew.

Many Jews sold their soul to the devil of the Communist revolution and have blood on their hands for eternity. We’ll mention just one more: Leonid Reichman, head of the NKVD’s special department and the organization’s chief interrogator, who was a particularly cruel sadist.

In 1934, according to published statistics, 38.5 percent of those holding the most senior posts in the Soviet security apparatuses were of Jewish origin.

The Jews active in official communist terror apparatuses (In the Soviet Union and abroad) and who at times led them, did not do this, obviously, as Jews, but rather, as Stalinists, communists, and “Soviet people.” Therefore, we find it easy to ignore their origin and “play dumb”: What do we have to do with them? But let’s not forget them. My own view is different. I find it unacceptable that a person will be considered a member of the Jewish people when he does great things, but not considered part of our people when he does amazingly despicable things.

Even if we deny it, we cannot escape the Jewishness of “our hangmen,” who served the Red Terror with loyalty and dedication from its establishment. After all, others will always remind us of their origin.

Many would regard Alexander Solzhenitsyn as the greatest living writer; but his ‘Two Hundred Years Together’, the magnum opus of his later writing life concerning the interactions of Russians and Jews, still awaits an English language publisher.

Perhaps Prof. Devorah Lipstadt’s network has been busy again?

What would the legal obstacles be to my buying the French edition and posting my own translation into English, chapter by chapter, online (at MR.com for instance), charging readers a pro-rated fee by the chapter, one-hundred-percent of their payments going into an escrow account in Solzhenitsyn’s name, an accont which only he can touch (none going to me or MR)?  Amalek could also do it — his French is pretty good, from what I gather.  Or he and I could split the work of translating, 50-50, to get it done faster.

JB speaks French, from what I’ve seen (I think he’s a Quebecker if I’m not mistaken) — he could pitch in as well if he feels his French is good enough.  (To translate something like this one’s French really has to be perfect or the result will be trusted by no one and essentially valueless.  Anyone volunteer, assuming it’s legally doable?)

Yes, even Steve Sailer regularly rubs salt into the west’s wound surrounding this shameful lack.

Wouldn’t Solzhenitsyn be the sole and final arbiter?  I doubt he’d object, for what that’s worth.

As the recent sacking of Harper Collins executive June Regan for an alleged ‘anti-semitic tirade’ demonstrated, Jews wield immense power in book - publishing.

Imagine a Jewish Nobel prize - winner struggling to find a publisher. Isaac Bashevis Singer wrote entirely in Yiddish and his tiresome, shtetl-style tales of malevolent Golem and Goyim always found an enthusiastic reception in the publishing world.

I advise all here to read the book “Stalin Against the Jews” by Arkady Vaksberg, which proves once and for all that Stalin was anti-Semitic, and (if the Holocaust revisionists are right) killed more Jews than Hitler. Stalin was known to hate Zionists, and was suspicious of every Jew, Zionist or not. After the purges of the 1930s, most Jews (who were previously dominant) were either exterminated or forced into alliance with Stalin.

Also of interest is the “The Hitler Book”, a dossier prepared for Stalin by the NKVD, which proves that Stalin denied the Holocaust of Jews, or at least did not think it was of any importance. The USSR (check the “Great Soviet Encyclopedia”) never recognized the “Holocaust of 6 million”—they did not distinguish between Jewish and non-Jewish victims. GDR was forbidden by Moscow to pay reperations to Israel, and was spared the guilt trip.

Solzhenitsyn, of course, is no more trustworthy than Gordievsky, Rezun or other Soviet defectors. Most of his (and Conquest’s) claims have been roundly debunked by Russian and Western historians. See “Victims of the Soviet Penal System in the Pre-war Years” by Getty, Rittersporn and Zemskov.

I could get hold of the Russian edition and translate that easily. However, I find the legality of such a course dubious, unless we plan to get Solzhenitsyn’s permission first. I have a number of highish contacts in Russia, but none who are close to him.

As the recent sacking of Harper Collins executive June Regan for an alleged ‘anti-semitic tirade’ demonstrated, Jews wield immense power in book-publishing.

What Ms Regan reportedly said of her Jewish superiors was this: “of all people, Jews should know about ganging up, finding common enemies and telling the big lie.”

Hence she was actually appealing to them as individuals not to let their race down by behaving like Nazis. But these days you aren’t allowed to mention Jews collectively at all unless you come to praise them, and you certainly must never so much as hint that they might collaborate on ethnic lines—a ‘cabal’. So they snitched to uber-shabbos goy Rupert Murdoch and he sacked one of HarperCollins’s most valued, albeit abrasive, employees on the spot.

Account of the teacup storm here:

http://www.forward.com/articles/an-editor-of-many-sins-butantisemite/

Note that Ms Regan habitually abused other staff, her underlings, as a black this and a lesbian that and they grinned and bore it. The Forward’s take is not that it doesn’t matter—that her Jewish bosses should be at least as thick-skinned—but that she was innocent of the most heinous crime, next to flying planes into skyscrapers, that Hymietown recognises. “If observers and former employees are to be believed, it might be one of the few transgressions of which she is not guilty.”

“If you were going to take an opportunity to make someone unsupportable, antisemitism would be the easiest charge to use,” argued Ron Hogan, co-editor of GalleyCat, a daily blog about the publishing industry, who said he does not believe Regan is guilty of the allegation.

Abe Foxman too was in his customary charitable, forgiving mood. Hell, its Hanukkah:

“If Ms. Regan did make the charge that a Jewish cabal was conspiring against her, she clearly stepped over the line by employing the age-old antisemitic canard that Jews conspire against non-Jews,” ADL national director Abraham H. Foxman said. “The Jewishness of her critics had absolutely no relevance to the matter at hand, which leads one to question why she resorted to raising the Jewish issue.”

So Ms Regan can be pardoned as long as she dismisses that ‘age-old canard’ which so many people in so many times and places have quite inexplicably fallen for. Evidence on the specifics of the situation not required. Jews never ever conspire, okay?

And the moral? As my old grandmother used to say, there’s no pleasing some people. Especially one particular people…

“I have a number of highish contacts in Russia…”

Alex, it would be of considerable utility if you can direct these contacts to Salter’s work, particularly “On Genetic Interests”, being republished by Transaction, as noted here previously.

Of broader utility, especially since there may be a language barrier here, is if you could translate some shorter materials into Russian, and disseminate these to the appropriate people in Russia.

For example, I’m sure Taylor would give permission for his journal’s reviews of Salter to be translated and distributed (as long as Amren is accredited); in addition, Salter’s original paper is on the front page of this blog.

Immigration is an increasing controversial topic in Russia, and the informatiom needs to be known.  I’m assuming the people described as “highish contacts” would be of sufficient intelligence and education to fully understand at least the reviews of Salter, if not the original material (which I’m sure they could digest as well).

It would be easier of course if as much as possible was in the native language.

brute, One problem with any such foray would be that most Russian nationalists are ‘culture and soil’ (as oppossed to ‘blood and soil’) Duginesque pro-Eurasia types. They aren’t likely to react all that well to predominantly biological arguments.

Quite apart from that, it’s debateable what my contacts (inc. polsci analysts at Moscow University and provincial governors) could do about immigration, esp. after Putin’s centralisation drive. They are of far more use supplying information to me, than vice versa.

Alex, but aren’t there some “blood and soil” types, particularly among the “hard right” and/or “anti-immigration” forces?  There’s this guy “Belov” heavily involved in the immigration question, among others.

And, the point of the contacts is not, per se, that they are going to initiate immediate changes in Russian government policy.  But I see it important that these ideas begin to percolate throughout certain intellectual areas of Russian life, with political science being a particularly fruitful area of such fertilization.

After all, Salter is a political scientist, who wishes, as stated in his new introduction to “...[contribute] to the integration of behavioural biology and the policy disciplines.”

It certainly won’t hurt I think to say, “look at this guy Dr. Frank Salter, etc.”  It may not do any good either, but, who knows? 

The more information, the better.

Fayard is not an obscure publishing house but apparently there was no review in the soviet-style mainstream press.

“Fayard is not an obscure publishing house”.

Indeed not, JB.

It is a subsidiary of Lagardere, a French owned publishing company which recently consolidated its position as the UK’s largest when it acquired Time Warner Books.

No excuses for recalcitrance then.

Some relevant pages (divided into three posts, if all goes according to plan) from the Jewish Tribal Review’s When Victims Rule; comments on Arkady Vaksberg’s book start nine paragraphs down:

http://www.jewishtribalreview.org/open.htm

Jewish pre-eminence in the new Russian regime was throughout the communist system. As Zvi Gitelman notes:

“The idea that the Bolshevik regime was a Jewish one gained popularity because of the relatively large numbers of Jews who in 1917 suddenly rushed into governmental posts from which they had been barred under the tsars. So striking was the prominence of Jews in high places that when it was proposed that a Jewish ticket be put forth in the elections to the Constituent Assembly, Maxim Vinaver commented, ‘Why do Jews need a separate ticket? Whichever party wins, we will still be the winners.’” [GITELMAN, Z., 1972, p. 114]

In the struggle for power in Russia, notes Nathaniel Weyl, “the prominence of Jews in the leadership of the Bolshevik Party was no greater than their prominence in the leadership of other, less totalitarian parties.” Prominent Jews in rival socialist factions included Julius Martov (Tsederbaum), Raphael Abramovitch, and I. N. Steinberg. Boris Savinkov, also Jewish, was the “legendary head of the Terrorist Brigade of the Socialist Revolutionary Party.” Aaron Baron and Lev Chorny were well-known Anarchists. [WEYL, 1968, p. 199-200] Building to the Russian revolution era, prominent Jewish revolutionaries also included Grigory Abramovich Perets and Nikolay Utin. One of the founders (in 1876) of the “Land and Liberty” revolutionary party was Mark Natanson. “Another Jew,” notes Leon Schapiro, “Aaron Zundelevich, played an important part on its executive committee. There were Jewish propagandists, Jewish organisers, Jewish terrorists ... It is impossible to doubt the importance of the Jewish contribution to the less spectacular business of organisation and staff-work. It was the Jews, with their long experience of exploiting conditions on Russia’s western frontier which adjoined the Pale for smuggling and the like, who organised the illegal transport of literature, planned escapes and illegal crossings, and generally kept the wheels of the whole organisation running.” [SCHAPIRO, L., 1961, p. 152] One of the Land and Liberty party’s later branches, the “Black Repartition” group, “soon became the cradle of the Marxist movement. Jewish revolutionaries participated in all stages and in all aspects of this movement.” [SCHAPIRO, L., 1961, p. 149-151]

“The abundance of Jewish names in the higher and middle levels of power (in the [Bolshevik] Party and state apparat, in the military, ministry, etc.) is indisputable,” says apologist Jewish author Arkady Vaksberg, “... For anti-Semites now, this is an odious and outrageous fact; from the point of view of normal people not blinded by chauvinist hatred, it is meaningless.” [VAKSBERG, p. 22] “Among the second-string leaders of the Soviet,” observed Nathaniel Weyl, “were Gregory Sokolnikov (Brilliant), Solomon Lozovsky, who would head the Red International of Labor Unions, and Moses Uritsky, chief of the Petrograd Cheka and number two man in the Soviet secret police.”[WEYL, 1968, p. 198]

In 1923, notes Isaac Deutscher, “a triumvirate, composed of Stalin, Zinoviev, and Kamenev, formed itself within the Politbureau ... Between them, the three men virtually controlled the whole [Communist] party and, through it, the Government ... Zinoviev was, in addition, the President of the Communist International.” [DEUTSCHER, p. 255] Amidst intrigue and power struggles within the communist movement, however, by 1927 Kamenev and Zinoviev “at last threw in their lot with Trotsky.” [DEUTSCHER, p. 307] Trotsky, an enemy of Stalin, was “the founder and builder of the Red Army,” [DEUTSCHER, p. 192] and once the “number two man next to Lenin. ” [NEW ENCYC BRITTANICA, p. 945] He was also Jewish, born Lev Davidovich Bronstein. Trotsky, Zinoviev, and Kamenev, notes Arkady Vaksberg, “alone formed the ‘leadership nucleus’ and had every reason to expect to inherit the mantle of leadership from Lenin. The man closest to the ‘troika’ (Trotsky-Zinoviev-Kamenev) after [Yakov] Sverdlov’s death was Grigori Sokolnikov.” [VAKSBERG, p. 19] All five of these men poised to rule Russia were Jewish. Kamenev once told Trotsky (his brother-in-law) [WALSH, p. 440] that “It will be enough for you and Zinoviev to appear together on the platform in order to reconquer the whole party.” [DEUTSCHER, p. 308] It didn’t work out that way. Stalin proved to be a more ruthless and/or shrewd leader in the struggle for power.

Nonetheless, Jews were very well represented in the Soviet system under Stalin. As Isaac Deutscher notes, “Jews were quite prominent in [Stalin’s] entourage, though far less so than they had been in Lenin’s. [Max] Litvinov stood for over a decade at the head of the Soviet diplomatic service; Kagonovich was to the end Stalin’s factotum; Mekhlis was the chief political Commissar of the army; and Zaslavsky and Ehrenburg were the most popular of Stalin’s sycophants. Yet he was not averse from playing on anti-Jewish emotions when this suited his convenience. During the struggle of against the inner-party oppositions his agents made the most of the circumstance that Trotsky, Zinoviev, Kamenev, and Radek were of Jewish origin.” [DEUTSCHER, p. 605]

“Lev Mekhlis,” notes Louis Rapoport, “would become Stalin’s secretary and one of the most despised men in Soviet history ... Immediately after the Revolution, many Jews were euphoric over their high representation in the new government. Lenin’s first Politburo was dominated by men of Jewish origins ... Under Lenin, Jews became involved in all aspects of the Revolution, including its dirtiest work. Despite the Communists’ vow to eradicate anti-Semitism, it spread rapidly after the Revolution—partly because of the prominence of so many Jews in the Soviet administration, as well as in the traumatic, inhuman Sovietization drives that followed.” [RAPOPORT, L., 1990, p. 30]

The Soviet Union’s leading communist newspaper was _Pravda_. Its “leading staff members,” Yakov Khavinson and David Zaslavsky, were Jewish, as were the Soviet Unions ambassadors to the U.S., Maxim Litvinov and Ivan Maisky, who were recalled in 1943. [VAKSBERG, p. 260, 139]

In 1994, Russian-born (and raised) Jewish author Arkady Vaksberg wrote a book entitled _Stalin Against the Jews_. Its fundamental thesis is that Stalin was a fanatical anti-Semite. (Louis Rapoport’s _Stalin’s War Against the Jews_ reflects the same theme). The fact that many Jews (including millions of others) died under his direction is beyond question. And Stalin’s actions in later life reflect his suspicions of the loyalty of many in the Jewish community. But the fact that Stalin was nonetheless surrounded by Jews everywhere in positions of high power (Lazar Kaganovich, Pyatnitsky, Fillip Goloschekin “and many others who were made part of the ruling circle”) [VAKSBERG, p. 20] is described by Vaksberg as “camouflage” for the Soviet leader’s hatred of Jews. [VAKSBERG, p. 27] Yet Vaksberg’s own evidence to portray the Russian Jewish community as solely victims consistently deflates the premise of Stalin’s enduring anti-Semitism. Vaksberg assails Stalin as a singularly rabid, irrational Jew-hater even while stating that “the people who surrounded Stalin and who had rendered him service in the twenties and thirties were mostly Jews” [VAKSBERG, p. 35] and conceding that Jews especially close to Stalin like Emelyan Yaroslavky (Mines Gubelman), Moisey Gubelman, Lev Mekhlis (“Stalin’s right hand man”), [VAKSBERG, p. 23] Lazar Kaganovich and Isaac Mintz all survived Stalin’s declared “anti-Zionist” purges.

“Why did Stalin, as an anti-Semite,” wonders Vaksberg, “have two Jewish secretaries—Lev Mekhlis and Grigori Kanner?” [VAKSBERG, p. 27] Why too, we might add in turning Vaksberg’s facts to different theses, whenever Stalin went on a vacation, did Lazar Kaganovich, a Jew, take over running the government? [VAKSBERG, p. 51] And why, we might add, if Stalin was so all-encompassingly hateful of Jews, did he entrust his life to a Jewish bodyguard, Matyas Rakoszy? [VAKSBERG, p. 40] (Another Jewish Stalin bodyguard, son of a rabbi, and “protege of Nikita Khruschev,” was Alexander Contract, who started out in the NKVD—later the KGB. Contract even saved the life of future Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin). [O’DWYER, T., 7-6-98] And if Stalin was singularly focused in his alleged hatred of Jews, why did his “personal corps of physicians” include “Drs. Weisbrod, Moshenberg, and Lev Gigorievich Levin?” [RAPOPORT, L., 1990, p. 37] Even prominent non-Jewish Communist Party officials (and close associates of Stalin’s social circle), President Mikhail Kalinin, Bukharin, Molotov, Voroshilov, Andreyev, Poskrebyshev, and Rykov, all had Jewish wives. Stalin’s own daughter Svetlana Allilueva had an affair with Jewish screenwriter Alexei Kapler; she later married Grigory Morozov (Moroz), also Jewish. [VAKSBERG, p. 138; RAPOPORT, L., 1990, p. 208] The fact that Stalin reportedly did not approve of these men is routinely explained by Jewish scholars as anti-Semitism. Stalin’s sister-in-law (eventually imprisoned) by his first wife was also Jewish. So was one of his daughters-in-law. And there is controversial testimony that Stalin even had a Jewish mistress, Rosa Kaganovich. [RAPAPORT, L., p. 46, 241] [ROTHMAN/LICHTER, 1982, p. 94]

Over a hundred Jewish generals also served in Stalin’s Soviet army, including the chief of the Soviet Air Force at the start of World War II, General Jacob Smushkevich. [GOLDBERG, M. H., 1976, p. 78]

“It seemed,” says Louis Rapoport, “there were Jews wherever [Stalin] looked. His loyal tin soldier, Marshal Voroshilov, was devoted to his Jewish wife, Catherine. Marshal Bulganin was also happily married to a Jew, Nadezhda. Politburo member Andrei Andreyev, who fell from grace in 1950, was married to Dora Khazan, and Kaganovich the Jew was married to Maria, also one of the tribe. Malenkov, who was suspected of being a bit of a philo-Semite, had a Jewish son-in-law, as, it was said, did Khrushchev. The up-and-coming Leonid Brezhnev was said to have a Jewish wife.” [RAPOPORT, L., 1990, p. 208]

Stalin’s alleged fanatical anti-Semitism had further curious twists. “Another non-Jew not only helped create Israel,” notes M. Hersch Goldberg, “but saved it. Incredible as it may seem, that man was Joseph Stalin. The tale of Stalin’s role in helping create and then insure the early survival of Israel has been little told; and on those occasions when it has been mentioned, there has been no satisfactory explanation for it.” This includes the fact that in 1947 the Soviet Union publicly supported the creation of a Jewish state, and was the second country (after the U.S.) to recognize its establishment. Stalin also initially supported Israel in its war of independence against the Arabs and supported Israel with shipments of arms through Czecheslovakia. Even the Soviet delegate to the United Nations, also President of the Security Council, was of Jewish heritage—Jacob Malik. [GOLDBERG, M. H., 1976, p. 220-224] It would seem that if Stalin was truly overwhelmed with feelings of irrational anti-Semitism, Jewish power within his own government had overwhelmed him.

From the start of his argument about Stalin’s single-minded hatred of Jews, Arkady Vaksberg marks the early struggle for power between Stalin and Trotsky-Zinoviev-Kamenev-Sikolnikov: “All four men whom Stalin perceived as his rivals in the struggle for power were Jewish. Each of them, especially Trotsky, naturally had a large number of allies in higher eschelons of power who could influence the distribution of posts and positions and the political clout and popularity of candidates. There was a certain ethnic ‘imbalance’ here too.” [VAKSBERG, p. 19]

As normal in Jewish scholarship (framing Jews as victims even as they act as oppressors), Vaksberg even makes the preposterous claim that the reason Jewish commanders ran 11 of the 12 major Gulag Archipelago concentration camps (including the director of them all, Matvei Berman, who also headed the slave labor project that built the Belomar-Baltic Canal) was that Stalin wanted to make Jews look bad, and foment anti-Semitism. “It could not,” he insists, “have been sheer coincidence.” [VAKSBERG, p. 98] Maybe not. But other possible reasons are too profoundly troubling for Vaksberg to consider.

Jews were also everywhere prominent in Soviet secret police organizations. “From the beginning,” writes Benjamin Ginsberg, “the Soviet state relied upon military, police, and security services to sustain itself, and Jews were active in these agencies. ... Jews ... staff[ed] and direct[ed] the coercive instruments upon which the state relied to control its citizens.” [GINSBERG, B., 1993, p. 30] Genrikh Yagoda, for instance, was the Soviet Chief of the Secret Police in the 1930s. A pharmacist, he specialized “in preparing poisons for his agents to use in liquidating Stalin’s opponents.” [GINSBERG, B., 1993, p. 31] “Yagoda was the man Stalin trusted most within the repressive aparat without which no totalitarian regime can exist,” says Arkady Vaksberg, “The Soviet version of dictatorship and Stalin personally would not have survived without the ‘faithful watchdogs of the revolution’ and their ‘punishing swords.’” [VAKSBERG, p. 36] Yagoda’s brother-in-law, Leopold Averebakh was the “chief supervisor of Party purity in Soviet literature.” [VAKSBERG, p. 35]

“Working side by side with Yagoda,” notes Arkady Vaksberg about a kindred Jewish government deputy, “was another professional chekist (a euphemism for professional executioner), Meer Trilissen ... The many actions undertaken by Trilissen’s agents included blowing up the cathedral in Sofia with the Bulgarian tsar and his government inside.” [VAKSBERG, p. 38]

Other Jews, Matvei Berman and Naftali Frenkel of the secret police, were instrumental in the creation of the slave labor system in which 200,000 workers died during one project alone, the White Sea-Baltic Canal. [GINSBERG, B., 1993, p. 31] “It was Frenkel,” notes Louis Rapoport, “who refined Berman’s use of prisoners as slave labors ... Most of the chief overseers of the Canal were Jews. Solzhenitsyn described them as ‘six hired murderers each of whom accounted for thirty thousand lives: Firin - Berman - Frenkel - Kogan - Rappoport - Zhuk ... Thousands of Jewish revolutionaries helped to spearhead the Terror machine with a messianic fervor. One of them, Matvei Berman, had helped to institutionalize slave labor as early as 1922.” [RAPAPORT, L., 1990, p. 30, 44]

Likewise, Yakov Agranov, Karl Danker “and other representatives of the Jewish proletariat ... distinguished themselves with a talent for execution.” [VAKSBERG, p. 39] Other prominent Jewish officials in the Soviet government included K.V. Pauler, Chief Operations Officer of the secret police in the 1930’s, Lev Inzhir (Chief Accountant for the Gulag: Inzhir “the all-powerful clerk, was kept busy with figures on transit points, rail depots and harbors, human and other freight transfers, length of terms, morality rates.”), “top” Chekist Aron Soltz, [RAPOPORT, L., 1990, p. 44, 45] M. I. Gay who headed a secret police organization that conducted mass arrests and executions during “The Great Terror” of the 1930s, and A.A. Slutsky and Boris Berman who were in charge of terrorist and espionage activities abroad in the 1930s.

Noting that “many of the prosecution witnesses and agent provocateurs against” Jewish enemies of the communist state were also Jewish, Louis Rapoport adds that

“Some of the main instruments of the Terror [against everyone] were also of Jewish origin: M. I. Gay, who headed a special secret police department; A. A. Slutsky and his deputies Boris Berman and Shpiegelglas, who were in charge of terror and espionage abroad; and NKVD operations chief Pauker. None of these mass executioners survived [later purges against them] [RAPOPORT, L., 1990, p. 49-50]

The man who headed the firing squad that executed the Russian royal family, Yakov Yurovsky, was also Jewish, as was the Bolshevik official who reported the deaths to Lenin, Yakov Sverdlov. [KRICHEVSKY, Behind, 1997, p. 8] Or, as Arkady Vaksberg puts it: “There is no getting around the fact that the first violins in the orchestra of death of the tsar and his family were four Jews—Yakov Yurovsky, Shaia Goloshchekin, Lev Sosnovsky, and Pinkus Vainer (Pert Voikov). The concert master and conducter was Yakov Sverdlov.” [VAKSBERG, p. 37]

As Zvi Gitelman notes about the Cheka, the early Soviet terrorist police organization:

“The high visibility of Jews in the Bolshevik regime was dramatized by the large numbers of Jews in the Cheka ... From the Jewish point of view it was no doubt the lure of immediate physical power which attracted many Jewish youths ... Whatever the reasons, Jews were heavily represented in the secret police ... Since the Cheka was the most hated and feared organ of the Bolshevik government, anti-Jewish feelings increased in direct proportion to Cheka terror.” [GITELMAN, 1972, p. 117]

Leon Schapiro remarks that “it is difficult to suggest a satisfactory reason for the prevalence of Jews in the Cheka ... Anyone who had the misfortune to fall into the hands of Cheka stood a very good chance of finding himself confronted with, and very possibly shot by, a Jewish investigator.” [SCHAPIRO, L., 1961, p. 165]

“I doubt that there was another poet (or novelist or playwright or artist),” says Arkady Vaksberg, “who was surrounded by as many Chekists as [Vladimir] Mayakovsky. [Mayakowsky was the leading poet of the Russian revolution era.] And sadly, they were almost all Jewish.” These included at least three Jewish generals in the secret terrorist organization: Yakov Agranov, Moisey Gorb, and Lev Elbert. [VAKSBERG, p. 45]

Another Jewish author, Richard Pipes, adds that

“The worst bestialities were committed by some of the provincial Chekas—which operated at a distance from the eyes of the central organs and had no fear of being reported on by foreign diplomats or journalists. There exists a detailed description of the operations of the Kiev Cheka in 1919 by one of its staff, I. Belerosov, a former law student and tsarist officer, which he gave to general Denikin’s investigators.

According to Belerosov, at first (fall and winter of 1918-1919) the Kiev Cheka went on a ‘continuous spree’ of looting, extortion, and rape. Three-quarters of the staff were Jews, many of them riffraff incapable of any other work, cut off from the Jewish community although careful to spare fellow Jews.” [PIPES, R., 1990, p. 823-824]

In later years, another Jew, Zakhar Ilyich Volovich, “was involved in many of the dirty circles of the NKVD [precursor to the KGB], crimes even today enveloped in dark secrecy.” [VAKSBERG, p. 45-46] Among the many Jewish executives in the Main Directorate of State Security of the NKVD were Mosiey Boguslavsky, Yakov Veinshtok, Zakhlar Volovich, Mark Gai, Matvei Gerzon, Moisey Gorb, Ilya Grach, Yakov Deich, Grigory Rapoport, Abram Ratner, Abram Slutsky, David Sokolinsky, Solomon Stoibelman, Meer Trilesser, Semyon Firin, Vladimir Tsesarsky, Leonid Chertok, Isak Shapiro, Grigory Yakubovsky, “and many other NKVD workers of the same level and same origins.” [VAKSBERG, p. 98] The non-Jewish head of the NKVD, Lavrenti Beria, had “many Jews in his close entourage ... [who were in] major positions in the NKVD.” These included Generals Arkady Gertsovsky, Veniamin Gulst, Ilya Ilyushin-Edleman, Matvei Potashnik, Solomon Milshtein, Lev Novobratsky, Leonid Raikhman, and Naum Eitigen. Heads of NKVD “investigative groups” included Colonels Boris Rodos, Lev Shvartsman, Isaia Babich, Iosif Babich, Iosif Lorkish, and Mark Spekter. [VAKSBERG, p. 102]

Among these, Colonel Lev Shvartsman stands out for Arkady Vaksberg as “one of the most vicious KGB executioners ... He personally tortured Mikhail Koltsov, diplomats, major scientists, and cultural figures.” [VAKSBERG, p. 223] Likewise, another Jew, Colonel Boris Rodos was a “sadist [who] ... at the Academy of Internal Affairs taught ... the methods of working over prisoners in their cells.” [VAKSBERG, p. 211] “As a Jew,” notes Yevgenia Albats in his book about the history of the KGB, “I’m interested in another question entirely: Why were there so many Jews among the NKVD-MGB investigators—including many of the most terrible? It’s a painful question for me, but I cannot evade it.” [ALBATS, Y., 1994, p. 147]

“Such Bolshevik Jewish luminaries as Lev Kamenov, Grigori Zinoviev, and Yakov Sverdlov,” says Ukrainian-American author Myron Kuropas, “helped Lenin come to power; and it was Jews like Maxim Litvinov, Lazar Kaganovich, and hundreds of lesser lights who were in the forefront of Stalin’s rise to power. It was they who later helped Stalin engineer Ukraine’s genocidal famine and the brutal Soviet takeover of Western Ukraine. When the USSR began to decline, writes [a former KGB officer married to a Jewish officer in the same force], ‘the flower of this educated leadership and their children emigrated to Israel and the West.’ I can’t help but wonder how many of these criminals now reside in the United States.” [KUROPAS, M., 8-14-94, p. 77]

Some estimates suggest that between a fourth and a fifth of the rural Ukrainian population perished by enforced starvation. [MOYNAHAN, p. 120] One of the dedicated Jewish communists was Lev Kopolev. “We were realizing historical necessity,” he wrote,

“We were performing our revolutionary duty. We were obtaining grain for the socialist fatherland ... I saw women and children with distended bellies, turning blue, with vacant, lifeless eyes. And corpses—corpses in ragged sheepskin coats and cheap felt boots; corpses in peasant huts, in the melting snow of old Vologda, under the bridges of Kharkov ... I saw all this and did not got out of my mind or commit suicide ... I believed [in the new Soviet order] because I wanted to believe.” [MOYNAHAN, p. 119]

In 1987, Stuart Kahan, an American relative of Russian communist strongman Lazar Kaganovich (originally named Moiseyevich; he is described by Kahan as the Soviet “Apparatus of Terror”), wrote a book about him. The author interviewed the elderly Kaganovich in Yiddish via his father, and concluded that his relative

“was, to put it mildly, a devil. That relative exuded evil, an evil that put millions of people to death ... [KAHAN, S., p. 5] ... Although the Church was left intact, its lands were seized [by the communist movement]. Even prior religious teaching was forbidden in the schools. Of course, word came down that it was the Jews who did this. After all, wasn’t the revolution prepared and fashioned by Jews? Both of Karl Marx’s grandfathers were rabbis, and Lenin’s grandfather was also Jewish. And wasn’t Yarkov Sverdlov, the first chief of state, a Jew, as was Trotsky himself? ... That Trotsky, unquestionably the most outstanding man among the Bolsheviks, was a Jew did not seem an insuperable obstacle in a party in which the percentage of Jews, 52 percent, was rather high compared to the percentage of Jews (1.8 percent) in the total population.” [KAHAN, p. 80-81]

Kaganovich “eventually held more key posts in the power structure than anyone except Stalin ... He demolished the huge Church of Christ the Savior and replaced it with the Palace of the Soviets. As commissar of heavy industry during the war years, he chose his brother Mikhail as his deputy and controlled everything from the vast fuel and steel industries to chemicals and building materials.” [RAPOPORT, L., 1990, -. 43]

Jewish author Arkaday Vaksberg even calls yet another Jewish Soviet leader, Rozalia Zemlyachka (Zalkind), “a sadist and monster who would play a major role in the slaughter in the Crimea after the destruction of the last strongholds of the White Movement [anti-communists] there.” [VAKSBERG, p. 23] Another Jew, Bela Hun, “spread bloody terror” with Semlyachka. [VAKSBERG, p. 41] Another government (and Jewish) terrorist, “the lawyer Moisey Uritsky ... was the scourge of Petrograd in 1918, terrorizing the citizenry as the local Cheka. He was killed by another Jew, Leonid Kanegisser.” [VAKSBERG, p. 23] Another Jewish Soviet leader, Filipp Goloschchekin, “was one of the main organizers of the murder of the tsar’s family in 1918 ... [He also] displayed boundless cruelty in the genocide of the Kazakhs when he became Party leader of Kazakhstan.” [VAKSBERG, p. 17]

As even Winston Churchill once wrote about Jewish influence in the communist world:

“This [communist] movement among Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt [Adam Weishaupt, the Bavarian founder in 1776 of one of the most famous conspiratorial groups, the Illuminati, in history], to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxemberg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this worldwide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development and envious malevolence, an impossible equality has been steadily growing. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the nineteenth century.” [PIPES, D., 1997, p. 139]

Jews were also “particularly visible in the Soviet cultural and propaganda apparatus” and they “dominated the Soviet film industry.” [GINSBERG, B., 1993, p. 31] Half of the June 1930 membership of the Communist Academy—a philosophy organization—were also Jewish. “It is obvious that from the very first moves to revive academic and scholarly work in the philosophical field [in Russia],” notes Yehoshua Yakhot, “the part played by Jews was considerable and, in a certain sense, predominant.” [YAHOT, p. 244] By 1984, as one percent of the Soviet populace, one author even found that even 33 per cent of Soviet musicologists were Jews. [BRAUN, J. , p. 85]

More than once in Soviet history, Jews have fallen under government suspicion for a collective foreign intrigue—many charged as agents of “American imperialism” or Israel. Sometimes portrayed in the Soviet press during Stalin era as men of “uncertain allegiance,” notes Isaac Deutscher, the newspapers “revealed systematically the Jewish names of writers who had been known to the public under Russian pseudonyms ... The Jews were to some extent protected by their prominence in vital spheres of the national life, in the management of industry, in nuclear research, in the [communist] party machine, in the academic world, and in the armed forces. (Nearly twenty thousand Jews held teaching posts in the Universities).” [DEUTSCHER, p. 608]

Among those many purged by Stalin in 1953 was the Jewish head (Palgunov) of Tass, the government news agency. [HYDE, H.M., 1971, p. 590] In 1937, in a purge of the Commander of the Red Army, seven of his top generals went with him. Four of these generals were Jewish—Yan Garmarik, Yon Yakir, R. Eideman, and B. Feldman. [HYDE, H.M., 1971, p. 351-352]

Opponents of indigenous European nationalist movements, Jews also rose to power in enforcing communist rule over post-World War II Soviet satellite countries, including Czecheslovakia, Hungary, and Poland. In Hungary, for example, Mathiou Rakosi was the Communist Party leader and Peter Gabor headed the secret police. Eduard Oklag, Yokub Berman and Gilyari Minz were prominent in the Polish government, Anna Pauker in Romania. “It was she,” notes Howard Sachar, “not the [Communist] party’s chairman, Gheorghe Gheorghin-Dej, who made the key policy decisions in her triple capacity as deputy premier, foreign minister, and deputy secretary of the central committee _ Simeon Bughichi, Mrs. Pauker’s successor as foreign minister, was also Jewish ... There were several Jews [after World War II] ... who played leading roles in the [Yugoslavian communist] government. The most eminent of these was Moshe Pijade [president of the Yugoslav National Assembly].” [SACHAR, H., 1985, p. 363, 365, 315]

A number of these Jewish leaders throughout the communist system met their end in government power purges. In Czecheslovakia, for example, Rudolph Slansky and ten other Jewish elites of the party were tried; eight were executed. “The Slansky trial,” note Ronald Radosh and Joyce Milton, “was in part a move to purge the Czech communist party of its Jewish leadership.” [RADOSH/MILTON, p. 349] Jewish scholar Barnet Litvinoff adds that

“When Stalin’s tyranny was at its height, and his grasp upon his satellites complete, powerful Jewish personalities were conspicuous in the Communist hierarchies of Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and Romania ... Hilary Minc and Jacob Berman who returned to Warsaw ... stood very close to the master in the Kremlin ... Erno Gero, Matyas Rakosi, and Mihaly Farkas occupied similar positions in Hungary, while Anna Pauker was the unquestioned mistress of Romania, with authority comparable to Rudolf Slansky’s in Czechoslovakia. The list was an extensive one, and included government and Party officials alike, ambassadors abroad, and some military figures trained by the Soviet secret police, not to mention university professors, film producers and broadcasting personalities.” [LITVINOFF, B., p. 104-105]

Philip Mendes notes Jewish prominence in a wide variety of communist and left wing movements throughout the world: “As early as the French Revolution of 1830, Jews played an active role in radical movements [including Michel Goudchaux, Philippe Anspach, Michel Alcan, Olinde Rodrigues, Adolphe Cremieux, and Josue Leon] ... In the 1860s and ‘70s Jewish activists occupied some of the highest positions in the fledgling Russian revolutionary movement. The ‘pioneer of Russian-Jewish revolutionary action’ was Nicholas Utin [Others included Mark Natanson, Paul Axelrod, George Plekahnov, Vera Zasulitch, Rosalie Bograd, Meir Molodetsky, Gregory Goldenberg, Lew Deutch, Vladimir Jochelson, Aaron Sundelievitch, and Hsya Helfmann] ... Jewish individuals also played a prominent role in all the Russian radical movements, from the Socialist Revolutionaries to the Mensheviks to the Bolsheviks ... In Hungary ... for almost four decades in fact, the top leaders of the Communist Party were Jews ... In France, many Jews have figured prominently in the leadership of the Communist Party, including Charles Rappoport, Jean Kanapa, Jean Ellerstein, Haim Cukierman, Charles Fierman and Henri Krasucki.” [MENDES, P., 1993, p. 9-13] Other countries of prominent Jewish radicalism cited by Mendes included Poland, Lithuania, Czechoslovakia, Italy, Holland, Austria, Germany, Spain, Great Britain, Chile, and the Middle East.

Ultimately, Benjamin Ginsberg [GINSBERG, B., 1993] alludes to the reoccurring paradigm to all this, that Jews throughout European history have sought benefit from allegiance to ruling powers—from absolute monarchists to communist dictatorships—which oppressed, suffocated, and even massacred non-Jewish masses. As a people who historically distanced themselves from the indigenous peoples of every land they lived and as centuries-old nemeses of the Christian order, Jews were ideally suited to function as dispassionate legislators—and exploiters and oppressors—over those of whom they had no real bond or interest. “The Gentile population in general,” says Ewa Morawska about Eastern Europe, “and the inhabitants of villages surrounding the [Jewish community] in particular, were seen by Jews primarily in instrumental terms as suppliers of ... material livelihood.” [MORAWSKA, p. 15] For those many Jews who had a religious basis in their lives, traditional Judaism often served the interests of devaluing others. As consequence, Jewish communities periodically engendered the wrath—and sometimes violence—of the common populace.

Jewish scholar George Mosse frames the common bond between the polar politics of the Jewish European capitalist and communist this way:

“There was an affinity between the Jewish bourgeoisie which supported the newest in the arts, placing themselves squarely on the side of the modernists, and their wayward socialist children, who wanted to overthrow the existing social and economic order. This affinity was based on shared ideals that the sons wanted to realize more completely than the fathers had.” [MOSSE, G., 1985, p. 57]

“Empirical data,” adds Jewish scholar Norman Cantor, “support the contention of French and German anti-Semites in the 1920s and 1930s that the Jews were both capitalists and communists, and thus doubly anathema to the reactionary racist movements that funneled into Judeo-phobic fascism. The German cartoons of the 1920s who depicted Jews as both bloated capitalists swallowing European civilization and nefarious red terrorists plotting to blow up western civilization were not engaging in absolute fantasy, even though Jewish apologists then and historians now like to make that accusation and try to forget the whole thing.” [CANTOR, p. 275]

If you’ve made it through all of the preceding, you’ll likely appreciate the purely scientific analysis of the roots of anti-Semitism offered by psychoanalyst Rudolf Lowenstein:

“Inaccessibility to reason is also one of the most typical characteristics of the anti-Semite, who is unable to re-evaluate his opinions and prejudices in the light of factual evidence that refutes them. The passions and the unconscious motives and mechanisms involved in his anti-Semitic feelings are too powerful to yield to reason or experience. We find therefore that although anti-Semitism cannot be placed in any one of the well-known clinical categories it is nevertheless frequently an indication of some sort of mental disturbance that could be classified among the social mental diseases.”

The above could be more clearly rendered as: anti-semites are not insane by any definition heretofor used. However, we still maintain that they are, because of their refusal to change their ideas in line with experience.

Hypocrites.

If you wanna see some real refusal to face facts, go to this thread on Laban Tall’s blog, and watch Jingoistic denounce the BNP…for being right. http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=5187043&postID=116669412698739850

Rnl’s three-part excerpt, which I read in full, is an eye-opener.  I’ll have to read the entire book the excerpt is drawn from. 

Because of what I view as its importance, I’ve pasted Rnl’s excerpt as a thread starter at Occidental Dissent.

The following are a few among the many eye-catchers:

“As normal in Jewish scholarship (framing Jews as victims even as they act as oppressors), Vaksberg even makes the preposterous claim that the reason Jewish commanders ran 11 of the 12 major Gulag Archipelago concentration camps (including the director of them all, Matvei Berman, who also headed the slave labor project that built the Belomar-Baltic Canal) was that Stalin wanted to make Jews look bad, and foment anti-Semitism.  ‘It could not,’ he insists, ‘have been sheer coincidence.’  [VAKSBERG, p. 98] Maybe not.  But other possible reasons are too profoundly troubling for Vaksberg to consider.  (—from the passages excerpted by Rnl)

Priceless paragraph.

Another:  if one says ethnic resentment on the part of Jews may have played a role in the order to kill the Tsar and his entire family (plus small group of retainers present with them in exile) and the actual carrying-out of that order, one exposes oneself to the charge of anti-Semtism.  But look at these words:

“as Arkady Vaksberg puts it: ‘There is no getting around the fact that the first violins in the orchestra of death of the Tsar and his family were four Jews—Yakov Yurovsky, Shaia Goloshchekin, Lev Sosnovsky, and Pinkus Vainer (Pert Voikov). The concert master and conducter was [Jewish Bolshevik] Yakov Sverdlov.’ “

Here’s a well-known quote we’ve all seen:

“Leon Schapiro remarks that ‘it is difficult to suggest a satisfactory reason for the prevalence of Jews in the Cheka ... Anyone who had the misfortune to fall into the hands of the Cheka stood a very good chance of finding himself confronted with, and very possibly shot by, a Jewish investigator.’ [SCHAPIRO, L., 1961, p. 165]”

Then there’s this:

If you’ve made it through all of the preceding, you’ll likely appreciate the purely scientific analysis of the roots of anti-Semitism offered by psychoanalyst Rudolf Lowenstein:

“Inaccessibility to reason is also one of the most typical characteristics of the anti-Semite, who is unable to re-evaluate his opinions and prejudices in the light of factual evidence that refutes them. The passions and the unconscious motives and mechanisms involved in his anti-Semitic feelings are too powerful to yield to reason or experience. We find therefore that although anti-Semitism cannot be placed in any one of the well-known clinical categories it is nevertheless frequently an indication of some sort of mental disturbance that could be classified among the social mental diseases.” —R.M. Lowenstein, Christians and Jews: A Psychoanalytic Study (New York: International Universities Press, 1951), 18-19.

RNL:

If you’ve made it through all of the preceding, you’ll likely appreciate the purely scientific analysis of the roots of anti-Semitism offered by psychoanalyst Rudolf Lowenstein:

everybody knows anti-semitism has nothing to do with jews. it most likely is related to bad childhood experiences

Theorist of anti-Semitism dies

(JTA) - Dr. Mortimer Ostow, who tied anti-Semitism to early childhood experiences such as toilet training, died Sept. 23 at age 88.

In the 1980s, Ostow led a group of psychologists in a study that examined the causes of anti-Semitism. Reviewing the case histories of patients, the group found that negative feelings toward Jews could be traced to early childhood, The New York Times reported. They suggested that troubles in toilet training or an Oedipal rivalry, in which a son’s negative feelings toward his father could be projected onto Jews, could be the cause. Ostow also wrote a 1996 book, “Myth and Madness: The Psychodynamics of anti-Semitism.”

I studied a bit of Russian History , and since   a long time , jewish communities were an actual trouble factor in Tsarist Russia . So , the rise of communism subversive comming from the” Yiddish land”  had already nothing surprising.
  But ,the most interesting thing is coming from drawing the links between russian jewish murderers and the money they had stolen and which ended in Western jewish bancs , Rothschild being the main actor in owning these russian blood issued money.
  When studying the parallel history of Soviet Russia and Europ , the facts that you first face is an all new approach of IIIrd Reich history .

  The huge jewish project of becomming a world overlord people , appears in several writings , such as Baruch Levy’s letter to Karl Marx .(issued in Revue de Paris 1928 )
This letter shows in a very clear manner , the value of a false flag   media or of a fake theory pretending to fight for better manlife condition ( communism or socialism or whatever ) that Levy understood as a powerfull mean for Jews , to reach for the utmost power over the whole world .
  The understanding by Levy of all the Karl Marx writings can be summed up that way : ”  all those “ideas about freedom & justice ” are deliberately a marvelous fake to drain peoples to a trap and make them support a fight , without being aware , jewish choosen peoples is to draw the only benefits .

  Since the Disraéli quote : ” Wars and revolutions are jewish people harvest ” , which together told us his own great lucidity and the forthcomming slaughters of next century , all of the terrible events of western earthlings can be explained by the hidden bias of jewish global power.
That fact is giving an completly upset view of Hitler policy.
  Well aware of jewish order nomenklatura in Russia , his fight against the ploutocratic money powers and the genuin Bank swindle (**)he had the inteligence to point out ( for one who didn’t study in any high school) , he was confronted to the necessity of a war against Russia . War which has been fatal , as well for Russian populations than for Hitlerian Germany.
But , suddenly , the person of Hitler shines of an utterly different spirit that one we are commonly used to.

The second learning is that in to day ‘s main events , since the Palestine terrirtory robbery to the 0911 in Manhattan , Jewish power is involved at any level .
The killing of JFK (**2),the war in Irak , the Viet Nam war , and the nowadays conquest of any European states power ( Sarkozy is strongly zionist , G Brown & Merkel too ) .. we are disclosing the same phenomenon in those political power conquest that the ones used in 1920 Russia . The law punishing any single word said publicly and criticysing anything done by a Jew (loi Gayssot in France)  was already used to send peoples in new Kolyma Goulag in 1920.
  So , the same guys , acting now in our countries , the same way they did in soviet union 70 years ago, and towards the same foolish goals ... nothing fun !
Fanaticism ends allways with innocents peoples bloodshed .

That is beside the point,  Jews operated at the highest levels of society of Stalin, amassing vast wealth and power whilst at it and of course deciding which undesirables needed to be purged, millions and millions were snuffed out….............. after there was nobody else left, guess which folks turn was next??? The wheels are turning rapidly once again.


Don’t copy and paste history.

@Rasputin

I advise all here to read the book “Stalin Against the Jews” by Arkady Vaksberg, which proves once and for all that Stalin was anti-Semitic, and (if the Holocaust revisionists are right) killed more Jews than Hitler. Stalin was known to hate Zionists, and was suspicious of every Jew, Zionist or not. After the purges of the 1930s, most Jews (who were previously dominant) were either exterminated or forced into alliance with Stalin.

Also of interest is the “The Hitler Book”, a dossier prepared for Stalin by the NKVD, which proves that Stalin denied the Holocaust of Jews, or at least did not think it was of any importance. The USSR (check the “Great Soviet Encyclopedia”) never recognized the “Holocaust of 6 million”—they did not distinguish between Jewish and non-Jewish victims. GDR was forbidden by Moscow to pay reperations to Israel, and was spared the guilt trip.

The only Jews he did kill were Jewish commissars vying for power. 

It was Soviet propagandist Ilya Ehrenburg that disseminated the 6 million dead Jew myth of the holocaust and Soviet authorities constructed buildings and facilities after the war to support this at Auschwitz.

And did Stalin not create an exclusively Jewish state in Russia’s Far East Birobidzhan.

“On Oct. 16, 1948, 50,000 Jewish communists turned out in Moscow’s Red Square to welcome the first Israeli delegation to Moscow. Stalin supported Zionism’s 1947 Palestine partition plan, gave crucial recognition to the newly-created state of Israel and voted for Israel’s admission to the United Nations.”
Jewish Communists during WW2

http://www.revisionisthistory.org/communist.html

“Many Jewish leaders of the early days of the revolution have been done to death during the Trotsky trials, others are in prison. Trotsky-Bronstein is in exile. Jankel Gamarnik, the Jewish head of the political section of the army administration, is dead. Another ferocious Jew, Jagoda (Guerchol Yakouda), who was for a long time head of the G.P.U., is now in prison. The Jewish general, Jakir, is dead, and along with him a number of others sacrificed by those of his race. And if we are to judge by the fragmentary and sometimes even contradictory lists which reach us from the Soviet Union, Russians have taken the places of certain Jews on the highest rungs of the Soviet official ladder. Can we draw from this the conclusion that Stalin’s government has shaken itself free of Jewish control and has become a National Government? Certainly no opinion could be more erroneous or more dangerous than that…

The Jews are yielding ground at some points and are sacrificing certain lives, in the hope that by clever arrangements they may succeed in saving their threatened power. They still have in their hands the principal levers of control. The day they will be obliged to give them up the Marxist edifice will collapse like a house of cards. To prove that, though Jewish domination is gravely compromised, the Jews are still in control, we have only to take the list of the highly placed officials of the Red State. The two brothers-in-law of Stalin, Lazarus and Moses Kaganovitch, are ministers of Transport and of Industry, respectively; Litvinoff (Wallach-Jeyer- Finkelstein) still directs the foreign policy of the Soviet Union…The post of ambassador at Paris is entrusted to the Jew, Louritz, in place of the Russian, Potemkine, who has been recalled to Moscow. If the ambassador of the U.S.S.R. in London, the Jew Maiski, seems to have fallen into disgrace, it is his fellow-Jew, Samuel Kagan, who represents U.S.S.R. on the London Non-Intervention Committee. A Jew named Yureneff (Gofmann) is the ambassador of the U.S.S.R. at Berlin ...Since the beginning of the discontent in the Red Army the guard of the Kremlin and the responsibility for Stalin’s personal safety is confided to the Jewish colonel, Jacob Rapaport.

All the internment camps, with their population of seven million Russians, are in charge of the Jew, Mendel Kermann, aided by the Jews, Lazarus Kagan and Semen Firkin. All the prisons of the country, filled with working men and peasants, are governed by the Jew, Kairn Apeter. The News-Agency and the whole Press of the country are controlled by the Jews…The clever system of double control, organized by the late Jankel Gamarnik, head of the political staff of the army, is still functioning, so far as we can discover. I have before me the list of these highly placed Jews, more powerful than the Bluchers and the Egonoffs, to whom the European Press so often alludes. Thus the Jew, Aronchtam, whose name is never mentioned, is the Political Commissar of the Army in the Far East: the Jew Rabinovitch is the Political Commissar of the Baltic Fleet, etc. All this goes to prove that Stalin’s government, in spite of all its attempts at camouflage, has never been, and will never be, a national government. Israel will always be the controlling power and driving force behind it. Those who do not see that the Soviet Union is not Russian must be blind.”

Stalin Quotes:

“National and racial chauvinism is a vestige of the misanthropic customs characteristic of the period of cannibalism. Anti-semitism, as an extreme form of racial chauvinism, is the most dangerous vestige of cannibalism…under USSR law active anti-Semites are liable to the death penalty.” (Stalin, Collected Works, vol. 13, p. 30).


Joseph Stalin article in Brdzola newspaper (December, 1901)

Groaning are the oppressed nationalities and religions in Russia, among them the Poles and Finns. Groaning are the unceasingly persecuted and humiliated Jews, deprived even those miserable rights that other Russian subjects enjoy the right to live where they choose, the right to go to school, etc. Groaning are the Georgians, the Armenians and other nations who can neither have their own schools nor be employed by the state and are compelled to submit to the shameful and oppressive policies of Russification.

“The Bolshevik Revolution in Russia was the Work of Jewish Brains, Jewish Dissatisfaction and Jewish Planning, whose goal is to create a New Order in the world.
What was performed in so excellent a way in Russia, thanks to Jewish Brains and Jewish planning, shall also, through the same mental and Physical forces, Become a reality all over the world.”
-American Hebrew, September 8, 1920

“Some call it Marxism — I call it Judaism.”
(The American Bulletin, Rabbi S. Wise, May 5, 1935).

66 million Christians were killed off in Russia, and the leadership of Russia was Jewish.

This maybe be stupid but what about using one of the language translation softwares on the internet to translate Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s ‘Two Hundred Years Together’ into English? I suppose it may be crude but something is better than nothing.
