Well, it is certainly one you cannot specifically address... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bolsheviks#.22Jewish_Bolshevism.22 Anti-communists, and particularly fascists, often used the term "Jewish Bolshevism", alluding to the fact that some of the Bolshevik leaders were of Jewish ethnicity or ancestry, such as Zinoviev, Kamenev, Trotsky, Kaganovich, Sverdlov, Radek, and Lenin. However, apart from the significant influence of Trotsky, Zinoviev and Kamenev in the early days of the Bolshevik regime (all fell victim to Stalin's purges in the 1930's), the Jewish presence in the early Soviet government, while significant, was by no means overwhelming. In 1922, of the 44,148 members of the Bolshevik party that had joined before 1917 (the Old Guard, as Lenin referred to them) only 7.1% were Jewish (65% were Russian). Among Lenin's 15 peoples' commissars, only 1 was Jewish (Trotsky). Among the 23 narkoms between 1923-1930, there were 12 Russians, 5 Jews, 2 Georgians (Stalin and Ordzhonikidze), 1 Pole, 1 Moldavian, 1 Latvian, and 1 Ukrainian. There were 3 Jews in the Politburo in the first half of the 1920's (Trotsky, Zinoviev and Kamenev). There were none among the 9 members of the Politburo in 1927, the above three having been expelled from the Party. In the 1930's, there was only 1 person of Jewish descent in the Politburo, namely Kaganovich, known for his devotion to Joseph Stalin. There are also claims that Jews, while not dominating the politics of the Soviet regime, were highly prominent among the members of the secret police and other instruments of oppression. Indeed, of the 12 members of the Cheka Counter-revolutionary department in 1918, 6 were Jewish. However, of the 42 Cheka prosecutors in September, 1918, at the height of Red Terror, only 8 were Jewish (14 Latvians, 13 Russians, 7 Poles). Only 3.7% of the rank-and-file Cheka agents were Jewish at that time. In the mid-1930's, under the leadership of Genrikh Yagoda (who was Jewish), the Jewish presence in the secret police briefly became dominant: of the people surrounding Yagoda, 39% were Jewish and only 30% Russian. Yagoda's secret police oversaw the execution of both Zinoviev and Kamenev, but fell victim to Stalin's next round of purges: Yagoda was replaced with ethnic Russian Nikolai Yezhov in September 1936, arrested and executed in March 1937. Under Yezhov, the number of Jews fell precipitously (to just 6 people) while the number of ethnic Russians among the leadership of the secret police, NKVD rose to 102 people (67%) and the purges, at Stalin's instigation, entered their bloodiest period (1937-1938).
