Soviets Razed Churches, Spared Synagogues
February 09, 2007
By Henry Makow Ph.D.
In October, a reader sent a penetrating question: "When Bolshevism took over Russia, they tried to eliminate religion. Their stated philosophy was atheism and they closed Christian Churches and killed or imprisoned the clergy."
"However, did they also close Jewish synagogues and kill or imprison the rabbis? The answer to this question will explain many things about the early days of Communism and I hope you can provide the truth."
Last week I stumbled across the answer in a book by American historian Edwin Schoonmaker:
"Fifteen years after the Bolshevist Revolution was launched to carry out the Marxist program, the editor of the American Hebrew could write: "According to such information that the writer could secure while in Russia a few weeks ago, not one Jewish synagogue has been torn down, as have hundreds—perhaps thousands of the Greek Catholic Churches...In Moscow and other large cities one can see Christian churches in the process of destruction...the Government needs the location for a large building," (American Hebrew, Nov. 18, 1932, p. 12) Apostate Jews, leading a revolution that was to destroy religion as the "opiate of the people" had somehow spared the synagogues of Russia." ("Democracy and World Dominion," 1939, p.211)
If the Communists hated God and religion so much, why didn't they destroy synagogues too? Do Christianity and Judaism worship the same God? Or can a religion that claims an exclusive God be a religion? Could it be that Judaism is a really a secret society like Freemasonry where the members don't know the hidden agenda, which is in fact expressed by Communism? Although many religious Jews were anti Communist, Schoonmaker's information suggests there may be an affinity between Talmudic Judaism and pagan satanic Communism.
My working assumption is that the London-based Judeo Masonic banking cabal sponsored the Bolsheviks and is behind the NWO. Communism was part of a grand dialectical process by which "life in the United States ... can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union," in the words of Ford Foundation President Rowan Gaither, to Congressional Investigator Norman Dodd in 1953.
If indeed Communism and Democracy are being "comfortably merged" under the pretext of the phoney "war on terror," then church destruction will be disturbing to Christians and all God fearing people, including ethnic Jews like myself.
The decisive presence of Jews in Communist movements is well documented. What Jews don’t realize is that satanic Communism is the source of anti Semitism. The inverted pentagram is the symbol both of Satan and the Soviet Union. Throughout history Christians have regarded Jews as agents of Satan. Some Jews may have deserved this reputation but all suffered as a consequence.
Secular Jews were duped by promises of "public ownership," "equality" and "social justice." Rejecting spiritual redemption, they embraced the devil's lure of a worldly utopia. The same enticements now are used to enlist useful idiots for world government.
The NWO is about consolidating wealth and power in a very few hands. As Communist pioneer Christian Rakovski testified, the bankers created the Communist state as a "machine of total power" unprecedented in history. In the past, "there was always room for individual freedom. Do you understand that those who already partially rule over nations and worldly governments [i.e. central bankers] have pretensions to absolute domination? Understand that this is the only thing which they have not yet reached."
It is appalling that an ideology represents Pure Evil, whose stated goal is to steal our property and destroy our love of family, God, nation, race and freedom is not only accepted but enjoys prestige in our society. How far we have fallen! Communism attacks our very humanity. Of course, Communism travels under different names today-- New Age, human rights (for some), feminism, diversity, post-modernism, world government-- always presenting a happy face, the better to dupe.
The banker-owned mass media mutes the story of how Communists razed civilization in Russia and murdered over 25 million people. We must recall this sorry record before they do it again in America. Remember, the Illuminati-Communist credo is "the end justifies the means."
The Nazis did not invent cattle cars for human transport. Schoonmaker cites Eugene Lyons, a Communist dupe himself, who wrote about the expulsion of peasants: "Millions of peasant homes were destroyed, the occupants packed into cattle cars and dumped in the frozen north or parched Central Asia...I saw batches of the wretched men, women and children peering out of air holes in cattle cars like caged animals." (239)
The Bolsheviks had difficulty killing large numbers and disposing of the bodies. Schoonmaker reports that French Navy divers found fields of corpses anchored at the bottom of Odessa harbour: "The seabed [was] peopled with human bodies standing upright, which the swaying of the water...softly rocked as though they were monstrous algae, their hair on end bristling vertically and their arms raised to the surface...[these] submarine cemeteries [were the] last resting places of some of Russia's most high-minded sons and daughters." (235)
These atrocities took place in 1920, two years after Grigory Zinoviev, (i.e. Hirsch Apfelbaum) head of the Third International called for the extermination of the Russian bourgeoisie, ten million people!
Clearly the focus on Jews as innocent victim is designed to distract us from the image of Jews as oppressor. "History ..has recorded nothing so profoundly revolting as the nameless cruelties in which these human fiends often revelled" wrote E.J. Dillon.
CLOSER TO HOME
With the same zeal that the Communists slaughtered the Bourgeoisie, Schoonmaker writes they "hunted down the clergy. Christian holidays were abolished... parents were forbidden from giving religious instruction to children...a League of the Godless was organized to mock out of existence every vestige of faith and reverence."
Law courts were reorganized. Justice was now defined by Bolshevik orthodoxy. Anti Semitism became a state crime. Science, art and education were all put to the Marxist standard and often ruthlessly suppressed. The Classics and even fairy tales disappeared from libraries and schools.
The institution of marriage was changed. You could obtain a divorce by merely sending your partner a card. They even considered the "nationalization of women" but demurred. In 1936, "emancipation" resulted in women making up: "26 percent of all workers in the metal and machine trades, 40% of woodworking and 24% of all Soviet coal miners..." (201)
Today in America, we can witness the steady decline of culture, education, religion, marriage, free speech, free press and objective truth. We can see attempts to increasingly control every aspect of our lives as the two countries are "comfortably merged."
Jewish commentators wring their hands trying to understand the "irrational" Gentile disease, "anti Semitism." They need look no further than to Communism and the bankers' attempt to highjack the human race from its natural course: family, nation, race and God.
If Jews refused to be agents and dupes of the megalomanical banking cabal, if they had fought Communism along side their Christian neighbours, there would have been no anti Semitism. (Although many Jews were never Communists, there would never have been Communism without Jews.)
Jewish commentators need to ask where the diabolical spirit threatening humanity originates. They need to denounce it as both evil and alien to them.

So, it is not lost in the shuffle.
Thank you, as well, Henry.

"...The Jewish members of the Communist Party are very commonly the intellectual and hence the articulate members of the party. The second-generation Jewish intellectual with his background of Talmudic dialectic is mentally predisposed to Marxism to a degree which he himself rarely appreciates. And Marxism with its inter-nationalism and anti-nationalism is eminently fitted to the emotional needs of a people without a fatherland. The attachment of men of other blood to the earth on which they were born is sometimes incomprehensible to the traditionally earthless Jew." (Fortune (New York), February 1936, p. 141)
