Bernhard Stempfle and Hitler’s Anti-Semitism (2)

Bernhard Stempfle - 2Members of this group (which never had a formal name although they might have considered Saint Michael the Archangel to be their patron saint) sincerely believed that by rejecting Jesus Christ (i.e. by refusing to recognize Him as their Messiah and the Son of God – God Incarnate), the Jews automatically severed their spiritual connection with God the Father. And established another connection – with His Adversity. With the Devil.

And not only ceased to be His Chosen People but (without realizing that) became to worship and serve the Devil. In other words, while they still believed that they were worshipping and serving God; in reality they became the servants (slaves even) of Satan.

Who took control of their channel into the spiritual world and began to use the Jews (all Jews that explicitly or implicitly rejected Christ that is) as his tools in his battle with God for control over the whole human world. Our world. The human civilization.

More specifically, he wanted to use this tool (i.e. the Jewish people or the “Jewish race” if you will) to conquer the whole human world and to transform it into the Hell on Earth. Literally. Thus making Jews, indeed, an existential threat to Christian Church, Christianity and the whole human civilization.

But to make it happen, he had to first destroy, eradicate, annihilate the Christian Church. First and foremost, obviously, the Holy Roman Catholic Church (as fundamentalist Catholics, members of this group regarded all other Christian denominations as either schismatics or heretics – or both).

First, he tried to kill the Church “in the cradle” (it is an established historical fact that many of the initial persecutions of Christians were conducted by the Jews – the story of St. Paul the Apostle is a perfect evidence of that).

When it failed, he used the Jews to weaken, subvert and undermine the Catholic Church (by assisting Muslims in religious wars, supporting schisms and heresies, instigating attacks on the Church by secular authorities, promoting atheism, agnosticism, paganism, occultism and other essentially anti-Christian religious practices, destroying the Christian morals and ethics via decadent, depraved and degenerate art, books, media publications, etc.).

And thus creating ideal conditions for the decisive final blow. Which was supposed to be delivered by the “Red Leviathan” – the Bolshevist Soviet Union created by a fusion of Marxism and the Russian Orthodox (and thus schismatic and even heretical) “Third Rome” – style Messianism.

Created by two full-blooded Jews (Marx and Trotsky) and one individual who also had Jewish blood in him – Vladimir Lenin. Assisted by many other Jews – Kamenev, Zinoviev, Sverdlov, etc., etc.

And spiritually supported by a very powerful “Jewish egregor” – the “collective soul” of the Jewish people (“Jewish race” if you will). Very powerful due to them being initially the Chosen People – chosen by God that is.

Consequently, members of this group sincerely believed that to win the inevitable existential war with the Bolshevist Soviet Union, one (i.e. the future Nazi Germany)  must radically weaken (and ideally eliminate altogether) the Jewish egregor thus robbing the Bolsheviks of the vital spiritual support (i.e. of the energies that they need to win this war).

And to achieve this objective, it was necessary to (a) destroy the Jewish infrastructure – burn the synagogues, close religious schools, shut down Jewish organizations, etc.; and (2) physically exterminate as many Jews as possible. Ideally, all Jews, making the whole human civilization Judenrein – “clean of Jews”.

Proponents of this conspiracy theory claim that members of this group managed to achieve key vital (for them) objectives. First, they convinced Adolf Hitler of its validity and thus of the necessity of the final (and murderous) solution of the “Jewish question”.

If this theory is correct, it means that Adolf Hitler (and thus all key Nazi Leaders) from the very beginning intended to perpetrate the Holocaust (i.e. to exterminate all Jews in German-controlled territories) and were only waiting for the right moment. Which was presented to them by the outbreak of the genuinely existential war with the Bolshevist Soviet Union.

Second, they managed to convince Pope Pius XII that the Holocaust was necessary to save the Catholic Church, the Christian civilization from annihilation and the whole human civilization from being transformed into a genuine Hell on Earth. And that he should not intervene – but instead let the SS do its job.

Third, they brokered a meeting between the Pope and RSHA chief Reinhard Heydrich who (incognito, of course) sometime in September of 1941 flew his Bf-109E7 from Berlin to Rome (he was an excellent pilot and external tanks provided enough fuel for a non-stop flight).

At that meeting, Pope agreed to remain strictly neutral (basically ignoring the mass murder of Jews – in many aspects the worst such crime in human history).

At the first glance, this theory seems plausible; however, I think that it is pure fiction. First, there is no evidence whatsoever that any such group (even informal) ever existed in the Roman Curia (or even in Rome, or anywhere in the Catholic Church).

Second, Adolf Hitler never mentioned Judaism (Jewish religion developed after their rejection of Christ) as the reason for anti-Semitism. In fact, h3e always stated that Jewish religion had nothing to do with the “Jewish threat”. Only the “Jewish race” did.

Third, all evidence accumulated during the investigation of the Holocaust (it was a horrendous mass murder, but still a crime that must be properly investigated) points to a conclusion that prior to the invasion of the Soviet Union in June of 1941 Adolf Hitler had no intention of physically exterminating the Jews – forced emigration and deportation were the only tools being seriously considered.

The decision to commence the Holocaust was made only after the beginning of an all-out “hot” war with the Soviet Union – the war that Hitler perceived to be an existential war with “Judeo-Bolshevism” (and thus with the “Jewish race”).

There is no evidence that the meeting between Reinhard Heydrich and Pope Pius XII ever took place. And the whole idea that after rejecting Christ the Jews automatically became the “slaves of the Devil” is not theologically sound either. And thus is accepted only by a very small number of radical Catholics.


More on Hitler’s Anti-Semitism

AH19Adolf Hitler made these conclusions based on one document (the infamous Protocols of the Elders of Zion), an irrefutable fact that Karl Marx – the founder of Marxism – and many Bolshevist leaders in Russia and other nations were Jews by blood (“genetic Jews”) and another irrefutable fact – that the participation of the Jews in prominent and lucrative professions far exceeded (by an order of magnitude and even more) its share in the population of Weimar Germany (less than 1%).

Jewish intellectuals and creative professionals were among the leading figures in many areas of Weimar culture (which Nazis considered decadent, immoral and destructive).

A rather typical example was one Magnus Hirschfeld, who unsuccessfully advocated ‘sexual freedom’ from 1897, until the foundation of the Weimar Republic gave him the opportunity for the establishment of the Institute for Sexual Science in 1919, promoting all kind of abhorrent sexual behavior and pornography.

Jews owned the leading (and much-hated by the Nazis) liberal newspapers such as the Berliner Tageblatt, the Vossische Zeitung and the Frankfurter Zeitung, and many editors were Jews too. Many leading liberal and avant-garde publishing houses were in Jewish hand.

Many leading theatre critics were Jews, and they dominated light entertainment (perceived as immoral, decadent, poisonous and spiritually destructive by the Nazis).

In March 1913, a Jewish writer, Moritz Goldstein, published an article that claimed that Jewish intellectuals and artists were effectively forming and directing German culture (which obviously did not make nationalists and then the Nazis happy at all).

Karl Marx – founder of Marxism (and, therefore, Bolshevism) was Jewish. Pavel Axelrod and Julius Martov – co-founders of the Russian Social-Democratic Labor Party (later transformed into a Bolshevik Party) – were Jews.

Vladimir Lenin – the leader of Russian Bolsheviks and the first head of the Soviet government – was one-quarter Jewish. Almost all Lenin’s companions on the “sealed train” that brought him to Russia in April 1917 (via Germany) were Jews.

Lev Trotsky who was the actual leader of the Bolshevik October Revolution in Russian (and the founding father of the Red Army – the key Bolshevik tool for world conquest), was a Jew. The first head of Soviet state (Soviet Russia) Yakov Sverdlov was a Jew.

Head of the Economic Council Yuri Larin who almost single-handedly destroyed the Russian economy, was a Jew. Viktor Nogin – People’s Commissariat for Trade and Industry – was a Jew. Yakov Yurovsky who commanded the death squad that shot Russian tsar Nicholas II and his family (close relatives of German emperor) was a Jew.

Members of Bolshevik Politburo (the real government of the Soviet Russia) Lev Kamenev and Grigory Zinoviev (Hirsch Apfelbaum) were Jews. On top of that, the latter was the leader of the Communist International (Comintern).

The objective of this organization (created by Russian Bolsheviks) was plain and simple – “use all available means, including armed force, to overthrow the international bourgeoisie and establish an international Soviet republic”.

In other word, invasion, conquest and destruction of the human civilization as we know it and its subsequent replacement with one global totalitarian state – Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

One of the most notorious Bolshevik mass murderers – head of Cheka secret police in Petrograd Uritsky was a Jew (in fact, a lot of high-level Cheka officials were Jewish). Genrikh Yagoda – head of GPU (Soviet secret police) was a Jew.

Meier Trilisser – head of the Soviet foreign intelligence (another vehicle for world conquest) was a Jew. Lazar Kaganovich – the key associate of the “Red Tamerlane” Joseph Stalin (and his right-hand man in many endeavors) was a Jew. His brother Mikhail Kaganovich who was in charge of the whole Soviet Defense industry (i.e. was the Soviet equivalent of Albert Speer) was, obviously, also a Jew.

Three of the four first administrators of Gulag (the Soviet system of forced labor camps subsequently copied by the Nazis) were Jewish. High-ranking generals in the Red Army – Iona Yakir, Yan Gamarnik, Yakov Smushkevich (Commander of the Soviet Air Forces) and Grigori Shtern – were Jewish.

Jews comprised about 4% of the population of the Russian empire (far less after Poland became independent), but 60% of senior members of the Cheka-GPU-NKVD in Ukraine (and about 40% in the whole Soviet Union) were Jewish.

The list goes on and on and on.

The Constitution of the Weimar Republic (fiercely hated by Nazis) was drafted by Hugo Preuss, a Jew. Hugo Hasse and Otto Landesberg (also Jews) played an important role in the first Republican cabinet formed after the 1918 revolution. Walther Ratenau – foreign and economics minister (two key government post) was a Jew.

Rosa Luxemburg – one of the leaders of German communists (who as members of Comintern were essentially the puppets of Moscow) and of the bloody Spartacus uprising – was a Jew. Ernst Toller – the leader of the short-lived (but bloody) Bavarian Soviet Republic – was a Jew.

Kurt Eisner – leader of its predecessor (People’s State of Bavaria) – was a Jew. After his assassination, two other Jewish leaders, Gustav Landauer and Eugen Levine, assumed positions of major influence in the “Raterepublik”.

Paul Levi, then chairman of the Communist Party of Germany that also played an important role in the Ruhr uprising (and was already a member of Comintern) was a Jew.

Béla Kun – leader of also short-lived (and also bloody) Hungarian Soviet Republic – was a Jew. In 1919 Jews made up to 99% of the Socialist student group in the University of Frankfurt-am-Main and more than half of the Social Democratic students in Berlin. 62% of Germans Jews voted for Social Democrats (whom Nazis considered Marxist).

Given these indisputable facts (combined with the infamous Protocols of the Elders of Zion), it is no surprise that Adolf Hitler (already a latent anti-Semite) came to a conclusion that the Bolshevik plan to conquer the whole world, destroy the global human civilization as they knew it and replace it with an alternative civilization (global Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) was, indeed, a global Jewish conspiracy.

However, his conclusions were all wrong.

Transformation of the Soviet Threat

Stalin Red FlagFor twenty years at least (most likely, much longer), Joseph Stalin had but one objective in life – world domination. In other word, to become the ruler, the Master, the owned, the lord, the Emperor of the whole world – by becoming the dictator, the absolute monarch of the gigantic totalitarian state – the global Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

In June 1941 he was literally hours away (36 hours or so, in fact) from delivering a devastating blow to German Wehrmacht. Which would have all but guaranteed his conquest and subsequent transformation of continental Europe (in other words, expansion of the Soviet Union to the shores of Mediterranean, Northern Sea and the Atlantic).

However, it was not to happen. In the early morning hours of June 22nd, 1941, German Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS unleashed its own hell (literally) on the Red Army. Thus stopping the Soviet invasion cold – about 36 hours before it was about to begin.

Now, 1418 days later, the “Red Tamerlane” faced a very, very different situation in Europe (and in the whole world). He was now facing a multi-million Allied armed forces (American, British, French, Canadian,. Australian, etc.).

Mighty, well-equipped (far better than the Red Army), experienced, battle-hardened, well-led and well-managed (again, far better than their Soviet counterpart), and very well-motivated (to protect their democratic way of life, they have just crushed one totalitarian regime – and will not hesitate to crush another).

Armed forces that had a sword against which Stalin had no shield – and will not have none in the foreseeable future. A gigantic armada of strategic bombers capable of obliterating entire cities in one night – let alone command, transport and the whole military infrastructure in a matter of weeks.

Stalin was well aware of the devastation unleashed by these bombers on Nazi Germany. Which had an extensive system of countermeasures – radars, night fighters (equipped with radars as well), etc. Soviet Union had none and would not get any in the foreseeable future (Russia still does not have decent night fighters).

Unlike Nazi Germany, pretty much limited to land forces (Army/Heer) and Luftwaffe, the Western Allies had the most powerful Navy in the world. Including aircraft carriers capable of successfully attacking just about any Soviet coastal city or military base

With complete impunity – Soviet air force was totally incompetent and powerless in over-the-water operations and its Navy for all practical purposes did not exist (compared to the Western one, of course).

In addition, Western Allies had extensive experience conducting large-scale amphibious operations in Europe and the Far East. Which all but guaranteed swift occupation of the abovementioned cities and military bases.

And now they had the ultimate weapon – atomic bomb. Stalin was well aware of the unique ability of Americans to mass-produce just about anything, so he had no doubt that by the end of the year the US will have at their disposal dozens of Fat Men and Little Boys. And hundreds – by the end of 1946.

Which made any air defense pointless – when one of several hundred bombers carries a nuclear bomb, it is impossible to identify it. Consequently, the destruction of the target (Moscow, Leningrad, Kiev, Minsk, etc.) was assured with practically a 100% probability.

Stalin had no illusions about why and how the Red Army won the war with Nazi Germany. It gave eight lives of its soldiers and officers for each German life; six aircraft for each German aircraft; five tanks for each German tank and so on.

And even with these sacrifices (made possible by the enormous numerical superiority in “all of the above”) the war was won only because Wehrmacht was commanded by the lunatic who was becoming more and more insane with each passing day, issued genuinely suicidal orders – and insisted that they were followed to a T.

And even that was not enough for the victory. Red Army managed to crush the Wehrmacht because the latter was short of just about everything – food, weapons, ammunition and, especially, fuel. And betrayed – at the crucial moments – by its key allies – Italy, Romania. Bulgaria, Finland…

And, of course, Nazis had to combat Resistance forces (which in places like Poland, Yugoslavia, Greece, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, etc.) were nothing short of guerilla armies that had tens of thousands of fighters, hundreds of artillery pieces and even tanks at their disposal.

Western Allies had none of these problems. Their armed forces were well-equipped (US Army was the only 100%-motorized force and the only one 100%-equipped with semi-automatic and automatic weapons), had plenty of weapons, ammunition and fuel and an enormously powerful military industry that could produce just about anything in enormous quantities.

And with dozens and dozens escort aircraft carriers (not to mention destroyers, corvettes and other fighting ships) to protect them, Allies supplied routes were virtually untouchable. Even to German U-boats which were far, far superior to the Soviet ones.

Stalin was well aware of another problem. There was no way he could win the war with Nazi Germany without receiving the enormous quantities of absolutely vital supplies from the Western Allies. In fact, without these supplies he would have surely lost the war as early as in 1942.

Which meant that there was no way he could hope to win the war with the very nations that supplied him with vital strategic materials (weapons, ammunition, fuel, etc.).

And, of course, he knew for a fact that the outbreak of war with the Western allies will immediately lead to radical increase in anti-Soviet Resistance activities (and very possibly even to uprisings) in Baltic states, Western Ukraine and Belarus, Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia…

Activities that he would not be able to crush with Katyn-style massacres. Horrified by the just uncovered Nazi atrocities (war crimes and crimes against humanity), Western Allies would react to such criminal measures in one and only one way.

By launching an all-out war on the Soviet Union.

Stalin had intelligence agents (mostly secret die-hard Communists) in very high places in British (and not only British) government and security services (“Cambridge Five” and others).

So he was well aware of the existence of Operation Unthinkable. Not one, but two contingency plans for the war against the Soviet Union. They were ordered by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (a diehard anti-Communist) in early 1945 and developed by the British Armed Forces’ Joint Planning Staff at the end of World War II in Europe.

In the summer of 1941, a surprise attack on Europe would have been a guaranteed success. In the summer of 1945, it was a guaranteed suicide.

Being obsessed with the idea of world domination, Stalin, of course, could not stop. He consolidated his power over Eastern Europe (however, Yugoslavia, Albania and subsequently Romania largely escaped from his clutches), expanded into Asia establishing puppet regime in China (not for long) and North Korea followed decades later by Communist regimes in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

Stalin’s successors expanded the Soviet influence into Africa (Ethiopia, Angola, Mozambique, etc.) and Latin America (Cuba and Nicaragua not to mention Communist guerilla activities in Guatemala, El Salvador, etc.).

But he had to forget about conquering Western Europe (and thus about genuine world domination). For good. This defeat (and it was a defeat all right) was so devastating for the “Red Tamerlane” that he genuinely felt that he had lost the war.

Stalin refused to approve the military rank (the highest in the Soviet military hierarchy) of Generalissimus of the Soviet Union created specifically for him by his cronies.

He died with the rank of Marshal of the Soviet Union and was buried in the corresponding uniform flatly refusing to ever wear the uniform of Generalissimus sewn exclusively for him.

He refused to wear two World War II award – the golden star of the Hero of the Soviet Union and the star of the Pobeda (“Victory”) order (although he well-deserved both of these awards bestowed on him by his close associates).

Although he led the Soviet Union to a victory over Nazi Germany (by far the most significant and even vital victory in history of Russia), he refused to either command or inspect the parade (Marshal Konstantin Rokossovsky commanded the parade and Marshal of the Soviet Union Georgy Zhukov was the parade inspector).

From the perspective of this book it meant that Nazi Germany has fulfilled its Divine Mission – prevented the Bolshevist Soviet Union from conquering and destroying the Western civilization. It succeeded at an enormous (and mostly unnecessary) cost, but it succeeded.

It destroyed sufficient amount of the Soviet military-industrial complex and survived the war of attrition long enough to put an end to the existential Soviet threat to the Western civilization.

Although the very next year (1946) marked the beginning of a new war – de-facto World War III – it was a mostly bloodless Cold War (with the exception of very local armed conflicts in Vietnam and Korea).

The existential Soviet threat to the western civilization persisted for almost half a century, but it was now a very different threat – the threat of the mutual destruction due to horrifying mistakes committed by one or more sides in this war.

Cold War ended forty four years after the end of World War II. Germany was united, the Soviet Bloc (“Warsaw Pact”) was dissolved, Communist regimes in Eastern Europe fell – and two years later the mighty Soviet Union ceased to exist.

The existential threat to Western civilization was gone – for good. Which would not have been possible without a decisive victory achieved by German Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS in the existential war with the Soviet Union.

War for the very existence of human civilization as we know it.


Soviet Existential Threat to Western Civilization

Nazis deeply and sincerely believed that they were fighting an existential war with “Judeo-Bolshevism” – the war for the very existence of Germany, Europe and the whole Western civilization as we know it. And made their belief a centerpiece of their ideology, mission, strategic objectives, strategies, strategic plans and the whole Nazi system.

They were totally and completely wrong about the “Judeo” part – I will prove it beyond the reasonable doubt in the chapter on Holocaust. However, they were right about the “Bolshevism” part – they were forced to fight the very existential war with the Bolshevist Soviet Union led by the “Red Tamerlane” Joseph Stalin.

Consequently, to understand Nazis and the Nazi Germany, you must understand its existential war with the Soviet Union. And to understand this war, you obviously must understand the Soviet Union (i.e. the Soviet existential threat to Germany, Europe and the whole Western civilization).

This understanding is so important that I decided to devote the whole large chapter to this existential threat. The Soviet Union was a system as well (a huge and complicated system, too), so I will analyze the Soviet Union (and the Soviet threat) using exactly the same tools as the ones I use to analyze Nazi Germany (visual diagrams, questionnaire, etc.).

The key diagram for the Soviet Union is presented below.

Key Visual Diagram of the Soviet Union


Crimes Committed by Communist Regimes

Red StarNot surprisingly, Communism (another very much criminal ideology) proved to be even more murderous than Nazism. Communists/Bolsheviks are responsible for no less shocking genocides, democides and mass murders committed during the “Genocide Age”.

  1. Red Terror during the Civil War in Russia (1918 – 1922). The Bolsheviks conducted the brutal policy of democide, exterminating the whole social groups (businessmen, intellectuals, wealthy peasants, etc.). However, they also committed acts of genocide, murdering about 500,000 Cossacks (not surprisingly, in WWII the latter overwhelmingly supported the Nazis). An estimated 5 million Russian citizens perished in the Red Terror.
  2. Forced “Collectivization” in the Soviet Union (1929 – 1935) which included deportation of the whole social group of wealthy farmers (the ‘kulaks’) to the inhospitable areas of Siberia, Kazakhstan, etc. About 700,000 died as the result
  3. Holodomor in Ukraine (1933) – the artificial famine that Stalin and his cronies used to eliminate the (mostly imaginary) Ukrainian resistance movement. Resistance to Stalin’s dictatorship, that is. The death toll was around 3 million (more than that of Operation Reinhard). Two million more died in Kazakhstan (twice the number of victims of Auschwitz). Thus the total number of Holodomor victims is roughly equal to the number of victims of the Holocaust.
  4. Great Purge (Great Terror) in the Soviet Union (1936 – 1938). It was essentially a Great Purge of the Communist Party, Soviet government, Red Army and security services (NKVD and GUGB) from actual, potential and perceived opponents of Joseph Stalin who used it to obtain the absolute power and to become essentially the ‘Red Emperor’. About 2 million citizens of the Soviet Union lost their lives
  5. Gulag system of forced labor camps in the Soviet Union (1930 – 1953). Estimated death toll – 6 million. Slave labor was the key tool of the ‘industrialization’ of the Soviet Union in 1929 – 1939 and in rebuilding of the Soviet economy after the World War II
  6. Deportation of whole nations in the Soviet Union (1941 – 1949 mostly; although ethnic cleansing under the Bolshevik regime began in 1929). Around 3.3 million were deported to Siberia and other inhospitable regions of whom about 4 million died
  7. Expulsion of Germans from Eastern Europe (1945 – 1950). 14 million deported to Germany; up to 5 million brutally killed (exceeding the death toll of Operation Reinhard). These horrible crimes against humanity were being committed right parallel to the infamous Nuremberg farce, where Nazis were being tried for essentially the same crimes that Stalin’s puppets were committing
  8. Democide in Communist North Korea (1948 – present day). Death toll – over 6 million. Other estimates run as high as 3.5 million. Persecutions and murder of ‘enemies of the people’ continue to this day
  9. Mass murders in Communist Vietnam. Estimated death toll – 200,000.
  10. Genocide of Hmong people in Communist Laos. Estimated death toll – 100,000
  11. ‘Cultural Revolution’ in Communist China (1966 – 1976). Estimated death toll – 3 million (more than perished in Operation Reinhard). 36 million more were persecuted (beaten, imprisoned, sent to forced labor camps, exiled to rural areas, etc.). Large-scale human rights abuses are still a part of a supposedly modern China.
  12. Khmer Rouge democide in Cambodia (1975 – 1979). Death toll – 2 million (about 25% of the total population). Pol Pot and his cronies would have killed a lot more, but, fortunately, the Vietnamese invaded Cambodia in 1979 and quickly put an end to the Khmer Rouge bloody dictatorship and its crimes

Consequently, the estimated number of victims of Nazism stands at about 17 million. The Communists killed about 21 million. Which proves beyond the reasonable doubt that Communism (Bolshevism) was a significantly more murderous ideology than Nazism.


Bolshevism as Russo-Marxism


Lavr Georgiyevich Kornilov – one of the best and the brightest generals in the Russian Imperial Army (who unsuccessfully tried to crush the Bolsheviks in the summer of 1917) coined probably the best definition of Bolshevism:

Bolshevism is a murderous cocktail made by mixing raw Russian vodka with the Marxist moonshine

In other words, Bolshevism was nothing but a quite old (but not good at all) Russian messianism as it had exactly the same objectives (to destroy the human civilization as we know it and replace it with a global totalitarian state with Moscow as its capital and the Russian dictator as its head). And thus was based essentially on the same “Third Rome” concept with only minor differences.

The only difference (and not that significant one actually) was that the “old” Russian messianism was based on the Russian Christianity (a heretical paganized distortion of genuine orthodox Christian faith) while Bolshevism was based on a different religion (yes, Marxism is essentially a neo-pagan quasi-religion). Which actually had a lot in common with Christianity.

Consequently, the Nazis were dead wrong – there was no such a thing as Judeo-Bolshevism. There was simply Bolshevism, which was nothing but Russo-Marxism which not only had nothing to do with Judaism and Jewishness but was actually sworn enemy of both.

There were at least two fundamental and irreconcilable differences between the two (serious enough to start a war). First, Judaism and Jewishness are fiercely nationalist – actually, more nationalist than any other ideology, religion and nation (after all, they claim that the Jews have been chosen by God Himself and thus are way superior to any other nation).

Second, Marxism is all about class struggle – a total anathema to Judaism and Jewishness that demand harmony and cooperation among all Jews – regardless of belonging to a certain social group.

Not surprisingly, Judaism and Jews were among the first victims of Bolsheviks and suffered deep and extensive persecutions during the whole period of the Soviet rule (I will talk about that in detail in the chapter on the Holocaust).

True, many Soviet Leaders (Trotsky, Kamenev, Zinoviev, Yagoda, Kaganovich – to name only a few) were genetic Jews; however, they were Marxist, atheist and internationalists and thus – according to the rules of Judaism – were not the members of the Jewish community (i.e. not Jews).

Hence, although the Nazis were right that Bolshevism presented an existential threat to Germany, Europe and the whole Western civilization and that some nation was involved, they were totally and completely wrong about the nation in question.

It was not the Jews; it was the Russians. Consequently, although the Nazis were, indeed, fighting the existential war, they were fighting it not with the “Jewish race” (that did not exist), but with the Russian nation.

And the nature of that existential war was far more complex than they thought. Actually, it was a total misunderstanding of the nature of this war that ultimately cost the Nazis their war, their state and for many – their very lives.
