    Lloyd George had a vivid imagination and a great capacity to insist on the centrality of the matters he had been concerned with (in this case, the Balfour Declaration, issued whilst he was Prime Minister). Bolshevism triumphed in Russia largely because the country was war-weary and catapulting towards ruin. The Bolsheviks were the peace party, which is why the Allies tried to overthrow them. The notion that large numbers of Russian Jewish Bolsheviks actually became pro-Allied and anti-German because of the Balfour Declaration is a bit far-fetched. Yes, of course, there was a popular correlation in the minds of many Germans (and others)in the inter-war era between Jewishness and Bolshevism. But the reasons for this mindset were much more varied than LG suggests in this extract. Of course, had the British not declared themselves in favour of a Jewish homeland at that point, there is a good chance that the Germans would have issued their own declaration.
