You said you're full aware of communist ideas' advancement by the pre-1917 East European Jews, admitting both Bund-like and Bolshevik streams. This is material, whereas whether you wish hell for the all or only the latter kind, is immaterial to the argument. Otherwise, I'm all for the complexity of the reflexion and somehow lacked it in your account of Jewish involvement in Lithuanian occupation by Russia or in your one-line history of Christianity. The "skin" assimilation argument cannot be applied to pre-WWII Lithuanian Jews' underground pro-Soviet activity (they truly risked their real skins), nor to the first-generation Soviet leaders Jews, who denounced Lenin's line in Stalin's Moscow Trials only under torture. The history can go to any complexity imaginable (and it should); my problem with your points is very simple and concerns not the history but historiography: in your representation the Jewish 'baddies' of all sorts are an exeption while Lithuanian ones are the rule.
