Not sure quite what you mean?

In 1917, the ruler in Russia was tsar Nicholas 2nd. He was an absolute ruler. In the March revolution, he abdicated.

The tsar was succeeded by the provisional government (though this was a dual-leadership as some socialist soviets were part of the provisional government) They promised lots of change after the tsar, but failed in providing these promises. In the November revolution the Bolsheviks and the soviets (workers councils) overthrew the provisional government (lead by Lenin, and they were communists).

Bolshevik's WERE Jews. Communism revolution was financed by wealthy Jews (capitalists)This idea of communism being anti-capitalism when all along communism was financed by these wealthy Jews.Apart from the many millions they killed, all it really did was great a load of wealthy Jewish oligarch's .

If you mean Communists? No, they were a *tiny* minority- and the Bolsheviks an even smaller faction. Russia was still largely an agrarian society with the vast majority of its people living in the country. If I were a betting man living in the 1900s, I would guess that a revolution would come from the land based peasants and their huge power rather than a minor, illegal political party that had had its leadership constantly imprisoned.

The true genius of the Bolshevik revolution wasn't just their ingenius capture of power, it was how they managed to hold on to it, even though they faced such huge opposition from world powers, wealthy Russians and indifference from Russia's huge landed population.
