The Menshevik Revolution - 1905
From a speech given to the National Geographic Society, Washington, DC,
on December 14, 1906, by William Elroy Curtis and published in National
Geographic Magazine for May, 1907 (pp. 313-314).Transcribed by Kevin Alfred
June 1998. [The background behind this story is the failed Menshevik Revolution
of 1905, a precursor to the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution when Communists, dominated
by Jewish leadership, seized control of Russia. Editor]
THE REVOLUTION IN RUSSIA
Premier Stolypin is Able and Brave; Vengeance of the Jews; Many Reforms
Already Instituted by Premier Stolypin
PREMIER STOLYPIN IS ABLE AND BRAVE
He referred to the starving Jews, and while he did not feel at liberty to
grant them the full rights enjoyed by other subjects without the concurrence
of the douma, he has relieved them from the most severe of the restrictions
under which they have been suffering, and now they can go about Russia with
an ordinary passport. They may engage in any business, but are not yet allowed
to buy land outside of the pale of settlement. Jewish children are now admitted
to all the schools and universities of Russia without condition. The members
of that race are now enjoying nearly all the liberties of those of other
races and religions, except that there has been no change in passport regulations,
which has been promised from year to year. Foreign Jews are still compelled
to explain the object of their visit before they are permitted to pass the
boundary. Mr. Stolypin will undoubtedly remove that humiliation in due time.
THE VENGEANCE OF THE JEWS
Perhaps these reforms are the cause of the present tranquillity, because
the revolutionary leaders nearly all belong to the Jewish race and the most
effective revolutionary agency is the Jewish Bund, which has its headquarters
at Bialystok, where the massacre occurred last June. The government has
suffered more from that race than from all of its other subjects combined.
Whenever a desperate deed is committed it is always done by a Jew and there
is scarcely one loyal member of that race in the entire Empire. The great
strike which paralyzed the Empire and compelled the Czar to grant a constitution
and a parliament was ordered and managed by a Jew named Krustaleff, president
of the workingmen's council, a young man only thirty years old. He was sent
to the penitentiary for life, and had not been behind the bars more than
three weeks when he organized and conducted a successful strike of the prison
Maxim, who organized and conducted the revolution in the Baltic provinces,
is a Jew of marvelous ability. Last fall he came over here lecturing and
collecting money to carry on the revolutionary campaign, but for some reason
has vanished and nobody seems to know what has become of him.
Gerschunin, the most resourceful leader of the terrorists, who was condemned
to life imprisonment in the silver mines on the Mongolian frontier, has
recently escaped in a water cask, and is supposed to be in San Francisco.
He is a Polish Jew only twenty-seven years old. I might enumerate a hundred
other revolutionary leaders and every one of them would be a Jew. Wherever
you read of an assassination or of the explosion of a bomb you will notice
in the newspaper dispatches that the man was a Jew. The most sensational
and dramatic episode that has occurred since the mutinies was on October
27, when, in the very center of Saint Petersburg, at the entrance of Kazan
Cathedral, four Jews held up a treasury wagon and captured $270,000. They
passed the package to a woman, who instantly vanished, and no trace of her
has ever been found; but they were all arrested and were promptly punished.
On the 8th of November a few Jewish revolutionaries entered a treasury car
near Ragow, in Poland, got $850,000, and disappeared.
Every deed of that kind is done by Jews, and the massacres that have shocked
the universe, and occurred so frequently that the name "pogrom"
was invented to describe them, were organized and managed by the exasperated
police authorities in retaliation for crimes committed by the Jewish revolutionists.
MANY REFORMS ALREADY INSTITUTED BY PREMIER STOLYPIN
But Mr. Stolypin has evidently arranged a truce. He has crushed out the
conspirators in the police department who organized and directed the "pograms"
[sic. -- KAS] and has given the Jews more liberty and more justice than
they ever enjoyed before. He has appointed a commission to prepare a law
placing them upon the same footing as Protestants, Roman Catholics, and
members of other religious faiths.
Mr. Stolypin is an able, honest, and grave man, of broad horizon and liberal
views and a high sense of justice. He has already done wonders. Every week
some important reform is ordered, some tyrannical regulation revoked, some
