I am not applying guilt, but I cannot be proud that Bolshevics were predominantly Jews. Sorry I feel that way. And please don’t mix Jews as an ethnic group with Judaists as people professing Judaism. Not all Jews are Judaists and not all Judaists are Jews. Bolshevics were atheists but they were (not all of them) Jews.

Stalin was not Jewish. He had most of the true believing Bolsheviks murdered.

The 1922 census of the Communist Party showed less than 1,000 Jews, according to historian Richard Pipes (father of Daniel Pipes) and other sources. Two heavily Jewish political parties were the only parties in the Russian legislature to condemn the Bolshevik power grab.

And the Bolshevics were effectively the only competition in Germany against Nazis after WW-1. Hitler did not just attack Jews for their ethicity or religion, it was political. Alas, it is the story of disporia. When a large Jewish population finds a "home", they are vilified, condemned and/or run out.

On a lighter note: I had a Jewish friend of mine tell me that Chinese take-out was developed by Herb Liebowitz from the Bronx and his nephew Lyman came up twith the fortune cookie. Is this true?

I sulute you for your honesty about the Russian revolution.
