Why are Jews so powerful?

There are only 14 million Jews in the world; seven million in the
Americas , five million in Asia, two million in Europe and 100,000 in
Africa . For every single Jew in the world there are
100 Muslims.

Yet, Jews are more than a hundred times more powerful
than all the Muslims put together.
Ever wondered why?

Jesus of Nazareth was Jewish.
Albert Einstein, the most influential scientist of all time and
TIME magazine's 'Person of the Century', was a Jew.

Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis was a Jew.
So were Karl Marx, Paul Samuelson and Milton Friedman.

Here are a few other Jews whose intellectual output
has enriched the whole humanity:

Benjamin Rubin gave humanity the vaccinating needle.
Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine.
Albert Sabin developed the improved live polio vaccine.
Gertrude Elion gave us a leukemia fighting drug.
Baruch Blumberg developed the vaccination for Hepatitis B.

Paul Ehrlich discovered a treatment for syphilis.
Elie Metchnikoff won a Nobel Prize in infectious diseases.
Bernard Katz won a Nobel Prize in neuromuscular transmission.
Andrew Schally won a Nobel in endocrinology.
Aaron Beck founded Cognitive Therapy.

Gregory Pincus developed the first oral contraceptive pill.
George Wald won a Nobel for our understanding of the human eye.
Stanley Cohen won a Nobel in embryology.
Willem Kolff came up with the kidney dialysis machine.

Over the past 105 years, 14 million Jews have won 15-dozen Nobel
Prizes while only three Nobel Prizes have been won by 1.4 billion
Muslims (other than Peace Prizes).
Why are Jews so powerful?
Stanley Mezor invented the first micro-processing chip.
Leo Szilard developed the first nuclear chain reactor;
Peter Schultz, optical fibre cable;
Charles Adler, traffic lights;
Benno Strauss, Stainless steel;
Isador Kisee, sound movies;
Emile Berliner, telephone microphone;
Charles Ginsburg, videotape recorder.

Famous financiers in the business world who belong to Jewish faith include

Ralph Lauren (Polo),
Levis Strauss (Levi's Jeans),
Howard Schultz (Starbuck's) ,
Sergey Brin (Google),
Michael Dell (Dell Computers),
Larry Ellison (Oracle),
Donna Karan (DKNY),
Irv Robbins (Baskins & Robbins) and
Bill Rosenberg (Dunkin Donuts).

Richard Levin, President of Yale University, is a Jew. So are Henry
Kissinger (American secretary of state), Alan Greenspan (Fed chairman
under Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush), Joseph Lieberman (US Senator),
Madeleine Albright (American secretary of state), Casper
Weinberger (American secretary of defense), Maxim Litvinov ( USSR
foreign Minister), David Marshal ( Singapore 's first chief minister),
Issac Isaacs (governor-general of Australia ), Benjamin
Disraeli (British statesman and author), Yevgeny Primakov (Russian
PM), Barry Goldwater (US Senator), Jorge Sampaio (president of
Portugal ), John Deutsch (CIA director), Herb Gray (Canadian deputy
PM), Pierre Mendes (French PM), Michael Howard (British home
secretary), Bruno Kreisky (chancellor of Austria ) and Robert Rubin
(American secretary of treasury).

In the media, famous Jews include Wolf Blitzer (CNN), Barbara Walters
(ABC News), Eugene Meyer (Washington Post), Henry Grunwald
(editor-in-chief Time), Katherine Graham (publisher of The Washington
Post), Joseph Lelyveld (Executive editor, The New York Times), and Max
Frankel (New York Times).

The most beneficent philanthropist in the history of the world is
George Soros, a Jew, who has so far donated a colossal $4 billion most
of which has gone as aid to scientists and universities around the

Second to George Soros is Walter Annenberg, another Jew, who has built
a hundred libraries by donating an estimated $2 billion.

At the Olympics, Mark Spitz set a record of sorts by winning seven
gold medals; Lenny Krayzelburg is a three-time Olympic gold medalist.
Spitz, Krayzelburg and Boris Becker (Tennis) are all Jewish.

Did you know that Harrison Ford, George Burns, Tony Curtis, Charles
Bronson, Sandra Bullock, Billy Crystal, Woody Allen, Paul Newman,
Peter Sellers, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben Kingsley, Kirk
Douglas, Goldie Hawn, Cary Grant, William Shatner, Jerry Lewis and
Peter Falk are all Jewish?

As a matter of fact, Hollywood itself was founded by a Jew. Among
directors and producers, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Oliver Stone,
Aaron Spelling ( Beverly Hills 90210), Neil Simon (The Odd Couple),
Andrew Vaina (Rambo 1/2/3), Michael Man (Starsky andHutch), Milos
Forman (One flew over the Cuckoo's Nest), Douglas Fairbanks (The Thief
of Baghdad ) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) are all Jewish.

So, why are Jews so powerful?
Why are Muslims so powerless?

There are an estimated 1,476,233,470 Muslims on the face of the
planet: one billion in Asia, 400 million in Africa, 44 million in
Europe and six million in the Americas . Every fifth human being is a
Muslim; for every single Hindu there are two Muslims, for every
Buddhist there are two Muslims and for every Jew there are one hundred

Ever wondered why Muslims are so powerless?
Here is why: There are 57 member-countries of the Organisation of
Islamic Conference (OIC), and all of them put together have around
500 universities; one university for every three million Muslims. The
United States has 5,758 universities and India has 8,407.

In 2004, Shanghai Jiao Tong University compiled an 'Academic Ranking
of World Universities' , and intriguingly, not one university
from Muslim-majority states was in the top-500.

As per data collected by the UNDP, literacy in the Christian world
stands at nearly 90 per cent and 15 Christian-majority states have a
literacy rate of 100 per cent.

A Muslim-majority state, as a sharp contrast, has an average literacy
rate of around 40 per cent and there is no Muslim-majority state with
a literacy rate of 100 per cent.

Some 98 per cent of the 'literates' in the Christian world had
completed primary school, while less than 50 per cent of the
'literates' in the Muslim world did the same.

Around 40 per cent of the 'literates' in the Christian world attended
university while no more than two per cent of the 'literates' in the
Muslim world did the same.

Muslim-majority countries have 230 scientists per one million Muslims.
The US has 4,000 scientists per million and Japan has 5,000 per
In the entire Arab world, the total number of full-time researchers is
35,000 and there are only 50 technicians per one million Arabs. (in
the Christian world there are up to 1,000 technicians per one

Furthermore, the Muslim world spends 0.2 per cent of its GDP on
research and development, while the Christian world spends around five
per cent of its GDP.

Conclusion: The Muslim world lacks the capacity to produce knowledge!

Daily newspapers per 1,000 people and number of book titles per
million are two indicators of whether knowledge is being diffused in a

In Pakistan , there are 23 daily newspapers per 1,000 Pakistanis while
the same ratio in Singapore is 360. In the UK , the number of book
titles per million stands at 2,000 while the same in Egypt is 20.

Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to diffuse knowledge.

Exports of high technology products as a percentage of total exports
are an important indicator of knowledge application. Pakistan 's
export of high technology products as a percentage of total exports
stands at one per cent. The same for Saudi Arabia is 0.3 per cent;
Kuwait , Morocco , and Algeria are all at 0.3 per cent, while
Singapore is at 58 per cent.

Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to apply knowledge.

Why are Muslims powerless?

......Because we aren't producing knowledge,
......Because we aren't diffusing knowledge.,
......Because we aren't applying knowledge.

And, the future belongs to knowledge-based societies.

Interestingly, the combined annual GDP of 57 OIC-countries is under $2 trillion.
America , just by herself, produces goods and services worth $12 trillion;

China $8 trillion,
Japan $3.8 trillion and
Germany $2.4 trillion (purchasing power parity basis).

Oil rich Saudi Arabia , UAE, Kuwait and Qatar collectively produce
goods and services (mostly oil) worth $500 billion;
Spain alone produces goods and services worth over $1 trillion,
Catholic Poland $489 billion and
Buddhist Thailand $545 billion.

...... (Muslim GDP as a percentage of world GDP is fast declining).
So, why are Muslims so powerless?
Answer: Lack of education.

All we do is shout to Allah the whole day !!! and blame everyone else
for our multiple failures!!!!!
============================== =
Muslims are not happy
They're not happy in Gaza
They're not happy in Egypt
They're not happy in Libya
They're not happy in Morocco
They're not happy in Iran
They're not happy in Iraq
They're not happy in Yemen
They're not happy in Afghanistan
They're not happy in Pakistan
They're not happy in Syria
They're not happy in Lebanon
So, where are they happy?
They're happy in Australia
They're happy in England
They're happy in France
They're happy in Italy
They're happy in Germany
They're happy in Sweden
They're happy in the USA & Canada
They're happy in Norway
They're happy in almost every country that is not Islamic!
And who do they blame?

Not Islam...
Not their leadership...
Not themselves...
And they want to change the countries they're happy in,
to be like the countries they came from,
where they were unhappy.
Try to find logic in that !

Jeff Foxworthy on Muslims:

1. If You refine heroin for a living, but you have a moral
objection to liquor,

You are a Muslim

2. If You own a $3,000 machine gun and $5,000 rocket launcher,
but you can'tafford shoes.
You are a Muslim

3. If You have more wives than teeth.
You are a Muslim

4. If You wipe your butt with your bare hand, but consider bacon unclean.
You are a Muslim

5. If You think vests come in two styles: bullet-proof and suicide.
You are a Muslim

6. If You can't think of anyone you haven't declared Jihad against.
You are a Muslim

7. If You consider television dangerous, but routinely carry
explosives in your clothing.
You are a Muslim

8. If You were amazed to discover that cell phones have uses
other than setting off roadside bombs,
You are a Muslim

9. If You have nothing against women and think every man should
own at least four,
You are a Muslim

10. If You find this offensive or racist and don't forward it,
You are a Muslim

Interesting that he spent SO much time talking about Jews, but omitted Israel as a place where Muslims are happy. Muslim Israeli citizens have all the rights that Jews do, including the right to form political parties and elect Members of the Knesset (parliament), but they don't have to serve in the military. Young women from the West Bank are eager to marry Israeli Arabs so they can come to Israel and enjoy the much better standard of living there.

But anyway, this is an interesting article simply because it's true. Arabs ruling oil-rich countries spend their money on imported luxuries for themselves, not on building up their middle class and economies (which is what education would do). If non-rich Arab children are literate at all, it's ONLY for the purpose of reading the Quran, not for learning about modern science and math. And in non-Arab countries, it's worse. They DON'T have resources, and they are desperately poor, and don't have the means to educate their children in anything but the Quran. They are equivalent to Europeans in the Dark Ages -- where religion is everything, and the rest is just labor to survive. And it's ironic that the Muslim world at the time was the center of learning and science and technology. Where did they go wrong? Or was it the Christian conquests during the Crusades that destroyed their technology and culture so utterly? I'm sure this will make for a good debate!

I saw a program that attributed the drop in Muslim scholarship, in part, to a religious-based refusal to accept the printing press for a very long time. By insisting on hand copied books in their own language they cut themselves off from the explosion of knowledge in Europe and elsewhere. This goes back to diffusion of knowledge.

The first entry is amazing for a Muslim scholar! A lot of these facts I didn't know.

I attribute the superior achievements of the Jewish people in part to selecting for the best scholars for more than three thousand years.

Jeff Foxworthy is too hostile. While it has some humor, overall it makes me sick. Oh wait, according to Jeff I'm a Muslim because I find that offensive. Therefore I must have more wives than teeth, routinely carry explosives in my clothing, and I must not use toilet paper, etc.

 I wouldn't be surprised if they both didn't get a fatwa.

He could have taken his statement one step further.  Muslims are not only not producing or diffusing knowledge; They Are Actively REPRESSING KNOWLEDGE!  How often have we heard: "All we want is the quran!"  Their madrassas teach very little other than the quran and at that, only the men are welcome in their schools.  The Taliban actively dismiss western thought and education and fight against the introduction of both in Afghanistan and Pakistan.  Whether they see education as synonymous with empowerment or not, it's clear they don't want either, because it threatens their patriarchy.

Foxworthy may be hostile, but for the large portion, he is ON POINT.

Christian fundamentalists also actively repress knowledge.
