No. This is a typical Anti-Semitic canard. While it is true that
Jews were overrepresented in the Communist party relative to their
population in the Russian Empire, most of the leaders of the
Communist Party were not Jews, such as Lenin and Stalin.
Communism in Russia was led by Russians who were furious with the Czar for abusing his power over his subjects and making them suffer in serfdom and quasi-slavery while they enjoyed the high-life.
