[…] the Pale of Settlement -was a poisoned chalice full of vicious, disgruntled, trouble making Jews. They made attempts to murder Tsar Alexander II. […] They then went on to bring us the horrors of the Bolshevik Revolution, the theft of Palestine which they choose to call Israel, the Gaza Massacre, political manipulation and various wars. It could all be said to have started in the Pale.

[…]The word pale derives ultimately from the Latin word palus, meaning stake (palisade is derived from the same root). From this derivation came the figurative meaning of „boundary“, and the concept of a pale as an area within which local laws were valid.

The „pale“, with its Christian and Jewish populations, was acquired by the Russian Empire in a series of military conquests and diplomatic maneuvers between 1791 and 1835, and lasted until the fall of the Russian Empire in 1917.

The Pale was first created by Catherine the Great [of German Prussian heritage] in 1791, after several failed attempts by her predecessors, notably the Empress Elizabeth, to remove Jews from Russia entirely, unless they converted to Russian Orthodoxy, the state religion. The reasons for its creation were primarily economic and nationalist. While Russian society traditionally had been divided mainly into nobles, serfs, and clergy, industrial progress led to the emergence of a middle class, which was rapidly being filled by Jews, who did not belong to any of these. By limiting the areas of Jewish residency, the imperial powers attempted to ensure the growth of a middle class for the non-Jewish majority.

The institution of the Pale became more significant following the Second Partition of Poland in 1793, since until then, Russia’s Jewish population had been rather limited; the annexation of Polish-Lithuanian territory increased the Jewish population substantially.[…]

In 1793, Poland was divided between Prussia and Russia. This was of paramount significance to Russia because she acquired the world’s largest Jewish population.

Russia had always had an Imperial Government with a Czar (or Tsar) as supreme ruler. A Czar had decreed (1772) that Jews could settle in Greater Russia but only in the vast area known as the “ Pale of Settlement„.

The Pale extended from the Crimea to the Baltic Sea, encompassing an area half as great as Western Europe.

Because Jews had always maintained a separate community (kahal) within Christian societies, the Pale can not be called abusive. It not only protected Russians from Jewish influence, but protected Jews from being kicked out by their Christian hosts after Jewish influence was felt and despised.

Under Czar Alexander I, many restrictions against residence „beyond the Pale“ (one should recognize this popular saying) were relaxed, and by 1881, the Jews had prospered greatly and achieved a monopoly over the liquor, tobacco, and retail industries. As Jews do everywhere… Gentiles were elbowed out.

Out of this environment were born Zionism and Communism.

Despite their prosperity and fair treatment by Russian Czars, Jewish Marxists slowly began fomenting revolution. A plot in the house of Jewess Hesia Helfman was successful. Czar Alexander II was blown up.

In 1895, the millionaire Jew Alexander Parvus (real name Israel Helphand) said war would break out between Japan and Russia, and that a „Russian“ revolution would be born of this conflict.[…]
