The Jews have undoubtedly to a large extent furnished the brains and energy in the revolution throughout Russia. [Nevertheless, in 1905, the revolution financed by Jacob H. Schiff failed.] — Mr. George von Longerke Meyer, United States Ambassador to Russia during the Russo-Japanese War, in an official letter dated December 30, 1905, to Mr. Elihu Root, then U. S. Secretary of State.
Capture the press! Through it everything will come to you in the natural course of events. [The Rothschilds financed Alliance Israelite Universelle which sent out bulletins ‘Nationalities must disappear, religion must be suppressed. But Israel (i.e., Zionism) must not disappear.’] — Adolphe Cremieux. Founder, Alliance Israelite Universelle, published in Russia and elsewhere in 1907: quoted from A. Shamakoff, Address in Defense of T. Dokshin and Others, Moscow: University Printing Office, 1907, p. 36
I believe that of all the achievements of my people, none has been nobler than the part the sons and daughters of Israel have taken in the great movement which has culminated in free Russia (revolution). — Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, March 23, 1917 at the mass meeting celebrating the revolution in Russia, New York Times, March 24, 1917

There is much in the fact of Bolshevism itself, in the fact that so many Jews are Bolshevists. The ideals of Bolshevism are consonant with many of the highest ideals of Judaism. — Jewish Chronicle London, April 4, 1919
The Bolshevist revolution in Russia was the work of Jewish brains, of Jewish dissatisfaction, of 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 because of Jewish dissatisfaction and by Jewish planning, shall also, through the same Jewish mental and physical forces, become a reality all over the world. — The American Hebrew, September 10, 1920
Bolshevism is a religion and a faith. How could those half-converted believers dream to vanquish the ‘Truthful’ and the ‘Faithful’ of their own creed, those holy crusaders, who had gathered around the Red standard of the prophet Karl Marx, and who fought under the daring guidance of those experienced officers of all latter-day revolutions – the Jews? — Dr. Oscar Levy, Preface The World Significance of the Russian Revolution, by George Pitt-Rivers, 1920
The Bolshevist officials of Russia are Jews. The Russian Revolution with all its ghastly horrors was a Jewish movement. — The Jewish Chronicle, September 22, 1922
What is the basis of Judaism? A practical passion and greed for profit. To what can we reduce his (the Jew’s) religious worship? To extortion. What is his real God? Cash! — Karl Marx, founder of Communism, quoted in the British Guardian, July-August, 1924
We have exterminated the property owners in Russia. We are going to do the same thing in America and Europe. — ‘The Jew’, 1925
It is often said that Judaism is the driving force of communism; but this does not prove anything beyond that which is expected and only natural. — Professor F.A. Ossendowski, The Nineteenth Century and After, London, January, 1926, p. 29
The real author of the Five-Years’ Plan, Kaganovitz, is a Jew, and what is more, a great favorite of Stalin. — Jewish World, June 25, 1931
Marx was a Jew. His manner of thought was Jewish. His keenness of intellect was Jewish; and one of his forebears was a most distinguished rabbi endowed with a powerful mind. — N.H. Bialik, in an address delivered at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, May 11, 1933, which appeared in Lines of Communication, Palestine, July, 1933
The Jews welcome this revolution in the Christian world…It is not an accident that Judaism gave birth to Marxism, and it is not an accident that the Jews readily took up Marxism: all this was in perfect accord with the progress of Judaism and the Jews. — Rabbi Harry Waton, A Program for the Jews and Humanity, p. 148
We intend to remake the Gentiles — what the Communists are doing in Russia. — Rabbi Lewish Brown in How Odd of God, New York, 1924
Marxism is the modern form of Jewish prophecy. — Reinhold Niebur, speech before the Jewish Institute of Religion, New York, October 3, 1934

Lenin had taken part in Jewish student meetings in Switzerland thirty-five years before. Dr. Chaim Weizmann, in The London Jewish Chronicle, December 16, 1932. (Lenin was born on April 10, 1870 in the vicinity of Odessa, South of Russia, as a son of Ilko Sroul Goldmann, a German Jew, and Sofie Goldmann, a German Jewess. Lenin was circumcised as Hiam Goldmann. Lenin, as a child, was left behind and later his Jewish convict father, Ilko Sroul Goldman, wrote inquiring his whereabouts. Lenin had already been picked up and adopted by Qulianoff (originally Zederbaum, a Kalmuck Jew). Lenin, or Qulianoff by adoption, married a Jewess and their children spoke Yiddish.
We are one people despite the ostensible rifts, cracks and differences between the American and Soviet democracies. We are one people and it is not in our interests that the West should liberate the East, for in doing this and in liberating the enslaved nations, the West would inevitably deprive Jewry of the Eastern half of its world power. — Chaim Weizmann statement in World Conquerors, p. 227
Some call it Marxism — I call it Judaism. — The American Bulletin, Rabbi S. Wise, May 5, 1935
The Jew is an inborn Communist. — Otto Weininger, Sex and Character, p. 311
Use the courts, use the judges, use the constitution of the country, use its medical societies and its laws to further our ends. Do not stint in your labor in this direction.
And when you have succeeded you will discover that you can now effect your own legislation at will and you can, by careful organization, by constant campaigns about the terrors of society, by pretence as to your effectiveness, make the capitalist himself, by his own appropriation, finance a large portion of the quiet Communist conquest of that nation. — Address of the Jew Laventria Beria, The Communist Textbook on Psychopolitics, p. 8
It is not an accident that Judaism gave birth to Marxism, and it is not an accident that the Jews readily took up Marxism. All that is in perfect accord with the progress of Judaism and the Jews. — Rabbi Harry Waton, A Program for the Jews and an Answer to all Anti‑Semites, 1939. p. 148
The Communist soul is the soul of Judaism. Hence it follows that, just as in the Russian revolution the triumph of Communism was the triumph of Judaism, so also in the triumph of fascism will triumph Judaism. — Rabbi Harry Waton, A Program for the Jews and Humanity, p. 143-144
Sons of Israel! The hour of our ultimate victory is near. We stand on the threshold to the command of the world.
That which we could only dream of before us is about to be realized. Only quite recently feeble and powerless, we can now, thanks to the world’s catastrophe, raise our heads with pride. We must, however, be careful.
It can surely be prophesied that, after we have marched over ruined and broken altars and thrones, we shall advance further on the same indicated path.
The authority of the, to us, alien religions and doctrines of faith we have through very successful propaganda, subject to a merciless criticism and mockery. We have brought the culture, civilization, traditions and thrones of the Christian Nations to stagger.
We have done everything to bring the Russian people under the yoke of the Jewish power, and ultimately compelled them to fall on their knees before us.
We have nearly completed all this but we must all the same be very cautious, because the oppressed Russia is our arch‑enemy. The victory over Russia, gained through our intellectual superiority, may in the future, in a new generation, turn against us.
Russia is conquered and brought to the ground. Russia is in the agony of death under our heel, but do not forget, not even for a moment, that we must be careful!
The holy care for our safety does not allow us to show either pity or mercy.
At last we have been allowed to behold the bitter need of the Russian people, and to see it in tears! By taking from them their property, their gold, we have reduced this people to helpless slaves.
Be cautious and silent! We ought to have no mercy for our enemy.
We must make an end of the best and leading elements of the Russian people, so that the vanquished Russia may not find any leader!
Thereby every possibility will vanish for them to resist our power.
We must excite hatred and disputes between workers and peasants. War and the class‑struggle will destroy all treasures and culture created by the Christian people.
But be cautious, sons of Israel! Our victory is near, because our political and economic power and influence upon the masses are in rapid progress. We buy up Government loans and gold, and thereby we have controlling power over the world’s exchanges. The power is in our hands, but be careful, place no faith in traitorous shady powers!
Bronstein (Trotsky), Apfelbaum (Zinovieff), Rosenfeld (Kamaneff), Steinberg, all of them are like unto thousands of other true sons of Israel. Our power in Russia is unlimited.
In the towns, the Commissariats and Commissions of Food, House Commissions, etc., are dominated by our people. But do not let victory intoxicate you.
Be careful, cautious, because no one except yourselves will protect us! Remember we cannot rely on the Red Army, which one day may turn its warfare on ourselves.
Sons of Israel! The hour for our long‑cherished victory over Russia is near; close up solid your ranks! Make known our people’s national policy! Fight for eternal ideals! Keep holy the old laws, which history has bequeathed to us! May our intellect, our genius, protect and lead us! — From The Central Committee of the Petersburg Branch of the Israelite International League
When the Russian Social Democratic Party split into two factions — Bolsheviks and Mensheviks — both factions had many Jews in their leaderships (such as Boris Axelrod, Yuly Martov, Lev Trotsky, Grigory Zinoviev, and Lev Kamenov) and among their most active party members.
Many Jews also played a part in the foundations and leadership of the party … For example, Mikhail Gots was one of the party’s main theoreticians and Grigory Gershuni was the leader of its fighting organization, which carried out terrorist acts against the Tsarist regime. — Shmuel Ettinger, ETTINGER, p. 9
In Lithuania, about 54 percent of the [Communist] party cadres were Jewish. Salonika Jewry played a major role in the foundation of Greek Communist party and remained prominent until the early 1940s.
Similar patterns prevailed in Rumania and Czechoslovakia. Jews played quite prominent roles in the top and second echelon leadership of the communist regimes in all of these countries in the immediate post-war period.
They were often associated with Stalinist policies and were strongly represented in the secret police. In Poland, for example, three of the five members of the original Politburo were Jewish.
A fourth, Wladyslaw Gomulka, was married to a woman of Jewish background. In both Rumania and Czechoslovakia, at least two of the four key figures in the Communist party were of Jewish background. — Jewish scholars Stanley Rothman and S. Robert Lichter, ROTHMAN/LICHTER, 1982, p. 90
Jews of Polish background played an important role in the founding of the Cuban communist party, and there are scattered indications of their significance in leftwing parties and groups in other Latin American countries. Jews were also prominent in the formation of Communist parties in various North African countries. — Rothman and Lichter, ROTHMAN/LICHTER, 1982, p. 90-91
Hungary, for 135 days [in 1919], was ruled by a Communist dictatorship. Its party boss, Bela Kun, was a Jew. So were 31 of the 49 commissars in Kun’s regime. — Jewish scholar Howard Sachar, SACHAR, H., 1985, p. 339
Jews were highly visible in many of the post-war [World War I] revolutions, not only in Bolshevik Russia but also in Budapest, Munich, and Berlin. During the post-war crisis, belief in Jewish conspiracies and subversive activity was not just a curious notion held by professed haters of Jews; in 1918, even Winston Churchill associated Jews with the Bolshevik conspiracy. — George Mosse, MOSSE, G., 1985, p. 68-69
