This chapter reports on the linkages between the Socialist Party in New York to the new Bolshevik government in Russia. The prominence of individual Jews in the new government had drawn much comment from observers in the United States and Europe. The article names some prominent activists in socialist unions and organizations—who are but a few of the larger Jewish collective that are presumed to have Bolshevik sympathies and, in one way or another, abused their positions within the United States in order to assist the new regime. Thus, the Jews have been regarded as a menace to the country and to its stance in the war. The chapter, however, notes that the role played by the Jews has been exaggerated here.
