Why are the Jews so powerful?     By: Dr Farrukh Saleem. (The writer is
a Pakistani, an Islamabad-based freelance columnist.)     January 12,
2009  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 — id, ego, and
super-ego, 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.
    * Alert Sab in developed the improved live polio vaccine.
    * Gertrude Elion gave us a leukaemia 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 (disorders of the
endocrine system; diabetes, hyperthyroidism. Aaron Beck founded
Cognitive Therapy (psychotherapy to treat mental disorders, depression
and phobias).
    * Gregory Pincus developed the first oral contraceptive pill.
    * George Wald won a Nobel for furthering our understanding of the
human eye.
    * StanleyCohen won a Nobel in embryology (study of embryos and their
development) .
    * 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). 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 and 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
(Baskin & 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, Madeleine Albright (American
secretary of state), Maxim Litvinov (USSR foreign Minister), David
Marshal (Singapore's first chief minister), Isaac Isaacs
(governor-general of Australia), Benjamin Disraeli (British statesman
and author), Yevgeny Primakov (Russian PM), Jorge Sampaio (president of
Portugal), Herb Gray (Canadian deputy PM), Pierre Mendes (French PM),
Michael Howard (British home secretary), Bruno Kreisky (chancellor of
Austria) and Robert Rubin (former 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
Lelyyeld (Executive editor, The New York Times), and Max Frankel (New
York Times).  Can you name the most beneficent philanthropist in the
history of the world ?  The name 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 world. 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 medallist. Spitz, Krayzelburg and Boris Becker
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, 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 and Hutch),
Milos Forman (One flew over the Cuckoo's Nest), Douglas Fairbanks (The
thief of Baghdad) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) are all Jewish. To be
certain, Washington is the capital that matters and in Washington the
lobby that matters is The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or
AIPAC. Washington knows that if PM Ehud Olmert were to discover that the
earth is flat, AIPAC will make the 109th Congress pass a resolution
congratulating Olmert on his discovery.  William James Sidis, with an IQ
of 250-300, is the brightest human who ever existed. Guess what faith
did he belong to? So, why are Jews so powerful? Answer: Education. 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 Muslims. 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 'literate s' 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
million. 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
million). 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 society. 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 exports 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.
Why are Muslims powerless?  Because we aren't diffusing knowledge.
Why are Muslims powerless?  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
whole day and blame everyone else for our multiple failures..!  By: Dr
