Percentage of Jewish Bolsheviki in Petrograd.
COPENHAGEN [F.O.C.]On the trustworthy authority of the well-known Zionist leader M. Idelson (of Petrograd), I am in a position to state that only two and a-half per cent of the Jews in Petrograd have declared themselves in sympathy with Bolshevism. Although sixty pert cent of the Bolshevik leaders are Jews, and although a declaration against Bolshevism involves serious sacrifices, the Jews of Petrograd have fearlessly stated their attitude towards the movement. We are, therefore, confronted with the anomaly of the Jews furnishing for the Bolsheviki the majority of their leaders, although a smaller percentage of Jews than of any other nationality approve of Bolshevism.
