The Chosen

According to David Malter, why did the Cossacks and the Polish peasants revolt against the Jews?

I think the answer is somewhere in part two of the book.

According to David Malter, the Jews who emigrated to Poland were employed by the Polish nobles to collect taxes from the peasants and serfs. The people, however, were angry about having to pay these taxes, and thus, they both resented and hated the Jews. As a result, they became openly hostile and revolted.
