And, may I add, they attacked Jews because they were usually in the
intellectual elite, just as intellectuals in China were targeted by the
Communists? The "reprogramming" of Jews in the USSR was usually done in
work-camps, just as it was done in China.
This is one of the insidious sides of socialism and, indeed, a lot of the
labor movement--it tried to pit intellectuals (usually Jews) against
"working class" (gentiles). Then it attacked the Jews without having to
actually SAY what they were really saying. That is what Russia and Germany
did, and it is what they CONTINUE to do. Now that there is no central
government, Russians have become increasingly anti-Semitic. I just read an
article about how Russians are snapping up Anti-Semitic tapes in the streets
of Moscow, and Synagogue bombings are becoming a regular fact of life.
Study is part of the Jewish religious tradition. It is easy to hide behind
semantics to attack the "elite" and support the "working class," but many of
us KNOW what that means.
Is it paranoid? Damn right it is. We have reason to be paranoid.

One could also justifiably say that anti-Semitism and other forms of
racial prejudice was one of the early targets of the Bolshevik, then
Soviet regime, but this changed rather rapidly, as the true feelings
of the comrades came out over the years.
