It was written by the Secretary for War, Winston Churchill. What follows is an edition of this essay:
"Some people like Jews and some do not; but no thoughtful man can doubt the fact that they are beyond all question the most formidable and the most remarkable race which has ever appeared in the world. And it may well be that this same astounding race may at the present time be in the actual process of producing another system of morals and philosophy, as malevolent as Christianity was benevolent...
As bankers and industrialists they have strenuously promoted the development of Russia’s economic resources... In politics their support has been given, for the most part, to liberal and pro-gressive movements... In violent opposition to all this sphere of Jewish efforts rise the schemes of the international Jews...
This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxemburg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (USA), this world-wide revolutionary conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing.
It played, as a modern writer, Mrs. Webster has ably shown, A definite recognisable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the nineteenth century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworlds of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of the enormous empire.
There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creating of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution by these international and for the most part atheistic Jews. It is certainly the 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...
In the Soviet institutions the predominance of Jews is even more astounding. And the prominent if not the principal part in the system of terrorism applied by the extraordinary commissions for combating counter revolution has been take by Jews, and in some notable cases by Jewesses.Zionism versus Bolshevism
The same evil prominence was obtained by Jews in the brief period of terror during which Bela Kun ruled in Hungary. The same phenomenon has been presented in Germany... Although in all these countries there are many non-Jews every whit as bad as the worst of the Jewish revolutionaries, the part played by the latter in proportion to their numbers in the population is astonishing."
The Times of 12 April 1919 quoted Churchill thus:
"Of all the tyrannies in history, the Bolshevist tyranny is the worst, the most destructive, and the most degrading. It is sheer humbug to pretend that it is not far worse than German militarism. [The atrocities are] incomparably more hideous, on a larger scale, and more numerous than any for which the Kaiser is responsible."
