The founders of Communism were not Christians, they were mostly of Jewish heritage (saying so might get you branded an anti-Semite and thrown in jail in parts of Europe today). Although the founders of Communism (as well as Zionism) were of Jewish heritage, they were mostly atheists and not followers of the Law of Moses. For example, with the notable exception of Lenin (Vladimir Ulyanov), most of the leading Communists who took control of Russia in 1917 were Jewish: Leon Trotsky (Lev Bronstein), head of the Russian Red Army and chief of Soviet foreign affairs; Yakov Sverdlov (Solomon), Bolshevik party's executive secretary and chairman of the Central Executive Committee; Grigori Zinoviev (Radomyslsky), head of the Comintern, the central agency for spreading revolution in foreign countries; Karl Radek (Sobelsohn), press commissar; Maxim Litvinov (Wallach), foreign affairs commissar. Lenin himself was of mostly Russian and Kalmuck ancestry, but he was also one-quarter Jewish. His maternal grandfather, Israel Blank, was a Ukrainian Jew who was later baptized into the Russian Orthodox Church. Lenin was actually a Jewish-supremacist who viewed ethnic or cultural loyalties - especially the Christian Russia which he was overthrowing - with contempt. He actually hated ethnic Russians: "An intelligent Russian," he once remarked, "is almost always a Jew or someone with Jewish blood in his veins." Confirmation of the role played by atheistic Jews in the founding of Bolshevism and Communism, comes from none other than Winston Churchill, who warned of it at the time in an article published in the February 8, 1920 issue of the London Illustrated Sunday Herald . In that article, Churchill wrote that Bolshevism "is a worldwide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization." He went on to describe its orgins: "There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews. It is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others. With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of the leading figures are Jews. Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders. Thus Tchitcherin, a pure Russian, is eclipsed by his nominal subordinate, Litvinoff, and the influence of Russians like Bukharin or Lunacharski cannot be compared with the power of Trotsky, or of Zinovieff, the Dictator of the Red Citadel (Petrograd), or of Krassin or Radek -- all Jews. In the Soviet institutions the predominance of Jews is even more astonishing. And the prominent, if not indeed the principal, part in the system of terrorism applied by the Extraordinary Commissions for Combatting Counter-Revolution [the Cheka] has been taken by Jews, and in some notable cases by Jewesses. Needless to say, the most intense passions of revenge have been excited in the breasts of the Russian people." As for the Jewish origins of Freemasonry, Saint Maximillian Kolbe wrote some excellent essays on this subject. Had Saint Maximillian Kolbe been alive today, his writings would have branded him an anti-Semite and he would have probably been thrown in prison. Of course, Putin understands the origins of Communism better than anyone else. Putin comes from the "White-Russian" (anit-Communist) tradition. They were defeated in 1917 and their Czar and his family was brutally tortured and murdered. But they were not totally eradicated. They bided their time and when the time was right Putin and Russian patriots loyal to him took control back (sometimes forcefully) from the Soviets and Bolsheviks who had ruined Russia. The reason the West can't understand how a seeming nobody - a mere KGB officer - could retake control of Russia and maintain that power for so long, is because they don't understand (or ignore) Russian history. They think that the majority of Russians in 1917 supported the violent overthrow of their country. Wrong. They think that Russia was inherently a nation based on atheistic, Jewish Bolshevism. Wrong. They also think that Russians are the type of people that will simply bow down and submit when their nation is violently overthrow by revolutionaries. Wrong. The dangerous part for us today is that the descendants of the violent revolutionaries of 1917, are now firmly in control of the West. They used the same "color revolution" and "protest" tactics that were so successful in 1917 to overthrow Ukraine. Putin knows they will overthrow Russia again today using the same tactics used in 1917, if they are given the chance. He'll never give them that chance and he will oppose their agenda abroad, so the conflict will continue. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
