Just about a couple of months later, Lenin responded to the Indian call. For the revolutionary leader, an India free from an oppressive British rule was a necessary prerequisite for a decisive defeat of an exploitative capitalist system. Advertising Lenin was sure that the Russian revolution would be incomplete unless it was followed by a similar uprising of workers and peasants across Europe and Asia.
Summing up the situation at that time, Israeli historian Louis Rapoport writes: Immediately after the [Bolshevik] Revolution, many Jews were euphoric over their high representation in the new government.
Historian Salo Baron has noted that an immensely disproportionate number of Jews joined the new Bolshevik secret police, the Cheka And many of those who fell afoul of the Cheka would be shot by Jewish investigators. Bruce Lincoln, an American professor of Russian history. In light of all this, it should not be surprising that Yakov M.
Igor Shafarevich, a Russian mathematician of world stature, has sharply criticized the Jewish role in bringing down the Romanov monarchy and establishing Communist rule in his country.
Shafarevich was a leading dissident during the final decades of Soviet rule. In Russophobia, a book written ten years before the collapse of Communist rule, he noted that Jews were "amazingly" numerous among the personnel of the Bolshevik secret police. The characteristic Jewishness of the Bolshevik executioners, Shafarevich went on, is most conspicuous in the execution of Nicholas II: It would seem that representatives of an insignificant ethnic minority should keep as far as possible from this painful action, which would reverberate in all history.
Yet what names do we meet? The execution was personally overseen by Yakov Yurovsky who shot the Tsar; the president of the local Soviet was Beloborodov Vaisbart ; the person responsible for the general administration in Ekaterinburg was Shaya Goloshchekin.
To round out the picture, on the wall of the room where the execution took place was a distich from a poem by Heine written in German about King Balthazar, who offended Jehovah and was killed for the offense. In his book, British veteran journalist Robert Wilton offered a similarly harsh assessment: The whole record of Bolshevism in Russia is indelibly impressed with the stamp of alien invasion.
The murder of the Tsar, deliberately planned by the Jew Sverdlov who came to Russia as a paid agent of Germany and carried out by the Jews Goloshchekin, Syromolotov, Safarov, Voikov and Yurovsky, is the act not of the Russian people, but of this hostile invader.
With the passage of time, and particularly afterthe Jewish role in the top leadership of the Soviet state and its Communist party diminished markedly. Put To Death Without Trial For a few months after taking power, Bolshevik leaders considered bringing "Nicholas Romanov" before a "Revolutionary Tribunal" that would publicize his "crimes against the people" before sentencing him to death.
Historical precedent existed for this. Two European monarchs had lost their lives as a consequence of revolutionary upheaval: In these cases, the king was put to death after a lengthy public trial, during which he was allowed to present arguments in his defense.
Nicholas II, though, was neither charged nor tried. He was secretly put to death - along with his family and staff -- in the dead of night, in an act that resembled more a gangster-style massacre than a formal execution.
Why did Lenin and Sverdlov abandon plans for a show trial of the former Tsar?
For his part, Trotsky defended the massacre as a useful and even necesssary measure. The decision [to kill the imperial family] was not only expedient but necessary. The severity of this punishment showed everyone that we would continue to fight on mercilessly, stopping at nothing. Jewish hatred of the Tsarist regime had a basis in objective conditions.
Of the leading European powers of the day, imperial Russia was the most institutionally conser-vative and anti-Jewish. For example, Jews were normally not permitted to reside outside a large area in the west of the Empire known as the "Pale of Settlement. In a recently published book about the Jews in Russia during the 20th century, Russian-born Jewish writer Sonya Margolina goes so far as to call the Jewish role in supporting the Bolshevik regime the "historic sin of the Jews.
Moreover, she goes on, "The Jews of the entire world supported Soviet power, and remained silent in the face of any criticism from the opposition.Joseph marries his first wife Ketevan Svanidze in She comes from a poor family of minor nobility.
