Moscow State University has issued a textbook on Russian history that some are calling anti-Semitic because it counts the number of Jews in Soviet governments.Professor Kevin MacDonald, who has painstakingly documented the history of Jewish groups organizing into a hostile elite -- often murderously so -- both in the West and in the Soviet sphere, notes the alien rule theme to the textbook, and how it suggests the Jewish nationalists who carried out so many of the atrocities were motivated as much by their ethnic identity as they were by their ideology of international Communism. MacDonald:
The Russian Ministry of Education approved the book, which for the first time in a university history textbook provides the exact percentage of Jews in Soviet governments, and recommended it for history students.
Co-authored by Moscow State history professors Alexander Barsenkov and Alexander Vdovin, the publicaton deals with Russian history between 1917 and 2004. Its underlying theme is interethnic relations in the Soviet Union focusing on the research of Alexander Barsenkov, who heads the laboratory of interethnic relations at Moscow State's Social Systems Research Center.
Part of the textbook's forward reads, “For the greater part of its 70-year history, the USSR was ruled by people of non-Russian nationality.” The authors write later, “By the 1930s, the Jewish nation was the leader among those represented in the Communist party and the state machinery, in Science and Art.”
The theme of the textbook is that the Russians were ruled by non-Russians. Rule by outsiders had predictably disastrous results for those without power: it was during this period that the most horrific mass murders of Russians occurred. The common sense of it is that Russians would not have murdered huge numbers of their own people in the name of international socialism.Heretofore, the official position of the Russian government towards its Communist past has been a mix of ambivalence and praise, with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin crediting Soviet dictator Josef Stalin (who oversaw the Jewish Bolshevik and State security mass murder of Soviet citizens) for creating a super state and winning World War II.
The issuance of this textbook with government backing suggests the Russian leadership, and by extension the Russian people themselves, are ready to come to terms with the murderous character of Leftism, Stalinism, and Jewish nationalism, and with how Jewish Zionists utilized Communism as a kind of Trojan Horse in an attempt to assert their supremacy both in-country and internationally; indeed, how Jewish Zionists in many ways invented Communism as a vessel for that very purpose.
