Why Jews are so powerful? Muslims are behind due to lack of Education.

 

Written by Sami Malik

This is an important read for Muslims...[using large font size is not allowed]

 

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, superego -- 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 Sabin 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 (a sexually transmitted disease). 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. Stanley Cohen 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).

 

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 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 (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, Madeleine Albright (American secretary of state), Casper Weinberger (American secretary of defence), 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, 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 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 wining seven gold medals. Lenny Krayzelburg is a three-time Olympic gold medalist. 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, 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 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?

 

Question: 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 Organization 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 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.

He died in 1944.And his IQ was not measured while he was alive.It's not possible to estimate the IQ of a dead person reliably.

So, why does Islam correlate to lack of education, and Judaism with good education ? I don't see any sort of explanation in this article.

 

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.

 

Whoaaa....hold your horses...this cannot possibly be true, taking into account the Christians from sub-saharan Africa.

The Jews are a successful people when compared to just about anyone. Education is really important but it is not the whole story. We all know people who are well educated but really out of touch. To dominate the movie industry one has to be in touch with society, and with globalization, in touch with much of the world.

 

To build a successful and competitive society, one must be tied in with the rest of the world, not set apart by ideas and mindsets that are shared by essentially nobody else. If there is a new heart procedure or technical advance in manufacturing in another part of the world, one should be aware of it, communicate with colleagues and be ready and willing to incorporate that into your way of doing things.

 

Even the Japanese, who are really earnest about remaining Japanese, are fully integrated into the global community. China and Korea are a couple other good examples. The game plan already exists, it is the implementation that is difficult. Even staying on course can be problematic; the US has definitely strayed.

I'm surprised that this didn't get more comments. I think Stefan had a good question, although the assumption that there is an underlying confection needs to be tested too. What do Muslims think about the issues mentioned in this article and what the true underlying cause(s) might be?

I just had this question put a little differently on another forum. Jews stick together more than any other religion or race that I can think of in the history of the world. Even among our divisions or sects there is very little conflict between one another. Nonpracticing Jews are still welcome amongst the practicing. Christianity I know distances themselves from the outside world and is divided horribly. Islam in the same sense is still fighting between Sunnis and Shias instead of focusing on a worldwide peace between brothers. I've converted to another religion and I'm still accepted as a Jew by my community. There's also the difference in teaching. I remember growing up with no other options besides college and straight A's in school via my mother who is Jewish. We were taught English correctly and I was taught to read at the age of 3. By 2nd grade I was doing book reports on authors such as Anne Rice and Stephen King. I learned Hebrew at a young age. Most people in the states and the Muslim world at large speak only one language growing up. I really think it has to do with three things...

1. Growing up with studious lineage i.e. if everyone in the last 30 years in your family has graduated college are you really going to be the one to break that chain?

2. Communal support unlike any other comparable on earth right now.

3. Being a minority.

 

Elaborating on number 3 is that whereever a Muslim is they can find a majority or at least a larger community than any Jew on earth with the exception of those living in Eretz israel. If say you're a Jew living in Columbus, OH for instance, you're going to find a handful of places where you can live within your community of Jews. If you're not close then you and any Jewish neighbors you have or your local Synagouge will support you in everything from financial decisions to education. But you will still have the adversity from Christian and Muslims or even atheists. Antisemitism is an ever present problem in your life and you are the odd one out. Whether or not its people around you fasting for Ramadan when you're getting ready for Rosh Hashanna and Yom Kippur or people celebrating Christmas and Festivus while you're preparing for Hannukah, you're always the odd one out. No one knows what your parents are talking about in Yiddish and your close friends all talk about getting bacon cheeseburgers or even just cheeseburgers for lunch and you pack your own Kosher meal. I realize Christianity plays into this scenario a little more than Islam but that was the main influence around when I was growing up here in the states. People freaking out because you don't believe in Jesus pbuh or thinking that you somehow are rich and plotting destruction for the world gets old after a while. But anyone faced with overwhelming adversity and overcoming it with communal support is a much stronger person than the average Joe down the street.

Whether muslims are clever or stupid depends on his faith, period.

Jews are inspired by his god Dajjal who was endowed with one big big bright eye which can penetrate into deep oceans and space and things minute.

Muslims of course have a choice, from complete blindness to having 2 eyes as bright as the Dajjal's.

So an honest Muslim with a learning disability lacks faith, and a cunning man who is able to deceive others and not be caught is faithful?

I don't consider that as an excuse for the Moslems, sure they have to be better than what they are now,

Some historical points,

 

1- If the Nobel Prize was applied long time ago, the Moslems would gain all of its branches between the 7th to the 15th centuaries, and share the others from the 16th to the 18th cetuaries.

 

2- If we apply the Jeanes records for civilizations the Moslems will gain the (fastest growing religion nd civilization), (most sable religion), (the most mercifule religion and civilization),

 

3- in 1805-1840 Mohammad Ali Basha changed Egypt, withen two decades, to be one of the major players in the world power, that forced Russia, France and Britain to unit to attack its navy in 1827.

 

4- Abd-Alnassar takes one decade to turn Egypt to be one of the major players in the Middle East and Africa. Egypt manufactures a fighter aircraft (HA 300) in 1962, it almost reached the mass production phase; it could be compared to the mirage-3 which later appered as a copy of the Egyptian design. USSR threatens Egypt to stop that project and some others or it will stop the technical assest in building the high dam and every other project. Egypt yealded to that tell the 1967 war, which the USSR role in such war still susbectable.

 

5- In 1980s an young Engineer "Ahmad Abd-Alateef al-Shareef" and a small groub of his colligues began their first factory for blastics products and ended up in 1993 with 46 of the most advanced mega factories in every engineering brnch, they had their own advanced research centers and manufacturing secrits. Because he was accounted as a Moslem brotherhood supporter, the Hosni Mubark regieme (by a higher order) attacked him and all the similar personalites; he won more than 13 legal cases, but ne response...

 

6- in the 1990s, the Indonesian aircraft technology reached a very advanced steps, in 1993 and 1995 the CN-250 a medium cargo aircraft did a great show in Dubai aircrat international Exihibtion, many countries show interest about it, specialy it's price is less than half in price compared to any other aircraft in the same category. In 1997 the eastern Aisha economical crisis attacted the area, many officials and even prisidents accused some weasterner money men being involved in such dirty stock markit plays.

 

7- 50% of the USA 1st class scientist is either the 1st or 2nd generation immegrants, who many of them are Moslams. They are just sucking the poor world minds, and that makes the poor just poorer.

 

8- 1000s of the 1st class scientists who tried to help their people, in every feild, had been assesnated by intelligint orgnizations, and the crimes just registered, un-known killer.

 

9- The Jew have no limitations in using every allowable/non-allowable legal/non-legal moral/nonmoral means, in every field..every feild, in their way of controling the people's minds and they have the media which magnify what ever they like and wipe out what ever they like.

 

10- Still Islam provides peace and happiness although poverity.

 

11- Although Moslems lost many by their civilized lag, and Media reputation distortion war against them, while the main looser is the non-Moslems since they couldn't see the real face of Islam. that can solve most of their problems.

I am sure many of these are true. I suppose the question has more to do with modern history, since you are correct that there are a number of historically important contributions to science and technology made by Muslim cultures.

 

7- 50% of the USA 1st class scientist is either the 1st or 2nd generation immegrants, who many of them are Moslams. They are just sucking the poor world minds, and that makes the poor just poorer.

I think this is another very good point, that there has been significant loss of intellectuals to Western countries through immigration. I suppose though that it still needs to be asked why this is. Of course there are financial incentives for such a move, but the problem is why does this inequality exist in the first place that would motivate people to emigrate to non-Muslim countries.

 

9- The Jew have no limitations in using every allowable/non-allowable legal/non-legal moral/nonmoral means, in every field..every feild, in their way of controling the people's minds and they have the media which magnify what ever they like and wipe out what ever they like.

This really bothers me. You aren't the only one to say it, but this kind of racial stereotyping and blanket condemnation of a people seems wrong to me. It strikes me as the exact same kind of thing you are complaining about with "Media reputation distortion war against them".

 

11- Although Moslems lost many by their civilized lag, and Media reputation distortion war against them, while the main looser is the non-Moslems since they couldn't see the real face of Islam. that can solve most of their problems.

Speaking of which, yes, I agree that there is a distorted view of Muslim cultures today that can masks much of the good happening in these countries.

at least all the world knew that tell the middle of the last centuary, tell the media full control.

many literatures of the European registered that, "Merchant of Venice" is a tragic comedy by the famous British writer William Shakespeare (1564-1616) showed that severe materialism of the Jews." The Jew", by the Russian writer Ivan Turgenev (1818-1883) did the same.

 

I hope some one can tell us what sect of people controls media/ holywood/ main news papers?

 

what did the world saw about the 1998 Gazza war? how many killed from both sides? what kind of weapons used from both sides? how many hours has been didicated for the killers from both sides? how many hours had beed didicated to the victums from both sides?

 

some may be lucky to see the reality and then see how media show it? he will realize how significant to control the main world media.

You are right, there was a lot of anti-semitism in the world. This resulted in the holocaust I believe, and is not a belief that ought to be encouraged. The persistence of bigoted rumors and theories of conspiracies need to be left behind in this past that you refer to.

 

I still don't understand how you can complain about this sort of treatment and then commit the same offense yourself all within the span of a single post.

holocaust is made by non-moslems, if some think they have the abc logics or justice, they have to say: who did it who have to pay for it.

when the Jews kicked out from Spain in 15-16 ceturies, by non-Moslems, non in the world accepted them but the most meciful civilization, the Moslems.

we still accept them and any others again, so simple, because that what Allah ordered us to do.

 

DON'T MIX ISSUES,

 

whoever Monopoly Media,distored realities and control minds, who ever he is, he is wrong. and the victums of such action is the innocent watcher. am I right?

whoever Monopoly the suger or tee in any contry of the world will be condemn, am I right?

 

I still don't understand how you can complain about this sort of treatment and then commit the same offense yourself all within the span of a single post.

what i'm complainning about?!!! i gave a small example, you, answer the questions and you will know?

 

i'll answer , and you correct me.

 

what did the world saw about the 1998 Gazza war?

agressive barbaric Arabs and Moslems attacking the innocent peaceful Jew, and after all suffering the peacful Jew deffended themselves.

 

how many killed from both sides?

7 israeli solidgers

more than 1300 innocent palistenian civilian almost 400 among them are children.

 

what kind of weapons used from both sides?

palistinian: primative hand made rockets 1 kg head and klachinkouvs

Israilies: F15, F16, Apatchis, RPVs, Satalites,......250, 500, 2000 LB bombs, guided missles, artilarys, tanks,.....white phosphor (forbiden weapons)

 

how many hours has been didicated for the killers from both sides?

Palistine......Full time, born to kill people!!!!

israel ..... minimum with full excuses and justifications

 

how many hours had beed didicated to the victums from both sides?

palistine...... Zero time. in case of some thing to be said (the world has get out off 1300 non-human non-families non-future or past terrorists, )

Isreal......100,000 hours about th 7 killings, 10s injuries, victumed families, fathers, mothers, fiancies, feelings, crying, the waited future, play with emotions as they can

 

what kind of realities is that, who is tring to decieve whom? and why? what is the meaning of mind wash?

Did I blame the Muslims for that? You need to read what I write more carefully.

The vast majority of media companies are owned by shareholders, not Jews. One of the worst media corporations for the Muslim image is News Corps owned by Rupert Murdock, not a Jew.

 

what i'm complainning about?!!! i gave a small example, you, answer the questions and you will know?

Are you talking about israelis or Jews. These two are not the same thing. And you still haven't answered my question, why would you malign an entire people while complaining of the same thing happening to yourself?

 

BTW, if you really want to talk about atrocities we could be here all day trading stories of Muslims doing bad things, Christians doing bad things, Jews doing bad things, Atheists doing bad things. I'm sure we could even find the Buddhists doing bad things. What is the point? That people do bad things to those they call their enemy? Yes, israel has done bad things to the Palestinians, but if this is so, then direct your criticism at israel and not all Jews. There are more Jews who live outside of israel than live in it. As for the media coverage of this, how is it that I in the West am aware of the things israel has done to the Palestinians. I knew about it before I ever came on this forum. Is the media biased? Yes, since I am afraid many Americans are biased and this is going to be reflected in American media, but if you know that Fox is a terrible source of news and broaden your perspective beyond just American media outlets, it isn't hard to get a fairer perspective on what is happening there. Your problem is bigger than the media, it is the apathy, if not outright bias of the American population. The media is just a reflection of this larger issue.

So, why are Muslims so powerless?

 

Answer: Lack of education.

This is a very loaded question and anyway I think in a nutshell the reason why Muslims are powerless is because there is no unity and massive distrust between people. So the old British policy divide and conquer has worked and until we get a leader who all the Muslim world can stand behind, I fear it will only get worse. The other problem is people are taking religion too extreme and are doing silly things such as banning certain books, not allowing women to learn and other crazy things. These kinds of things are silly and more over impedes and hinders progress. We need to get rid of people who are extreme in their views and take the word to be a literal meaning. People should understand they are living in a modern day world and unless you educate yourself and your community to get out of jahilliya there is no way out. Fighting and war will not do anyone any good.

 

Peace.

Peace.

This right here is the sound of the nail being hit on the head. People pretend like the Ottoman empire didn't collapse under an inefficient and bloated bureaucracy, that this didn't lead directly to the colonization of the Middle East by Britain and France, or that it was a well known practice of these colonizing powers, especially the British, to sow divisions amongst the colonized people in order to make them easier to manipulate and control. There is no mention of the subsequent over-reaction of nationalism and misplaced religious zealotry (as opposed to faithful orthodoxy) in these peoples efforts to overthrow the colonizing power (not to mention an understandable antipathy towards things perceived Western).

 

These things don't take place in a historical vacuum, there is a context and a circumstance for the conditions we see, not just in the Middle East, but across the world. To pretend that none of this ever happened and that there is something inherently wrong (or right in the case of those who came out on the better end of this exchange) with the people in question is an act of gross negligence bordering on willful ignorance.
