…comprise a mere 1/4 of 1% (13 million) of the world’s population (6 billion) that 99% of the world is non-Jewish, and that of the 660 Nobel prizes from 1901-1990, 160 have been won by Jews. Jews have won more Nobel prizes than any other ethnicity. They have won 40 times more than should be expected of them based upon population statistics. (from Lisa Katz)
Google “Jewish accomplishments” and you will find – in all fields – including science, mathematics, medicine, art, literature, music and philosophy – lists and lists of Jewish people who have enriched our world.
The two conquerors of polio – Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin – were Jewish. Selman Waksman, discover of streptomycin (the first molecule effective against tuberculosis) was Jewish. Many of my favorite musical composers were Jewish – Irving Berlin, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland. Marc Chagall, the French painter, was Jewish. Ayn Rand, one of my favorite philosophers, was Jewish.
Those of you on the left might appreciate Engels, Chomsky, and Marcuse – all Jewish.
I say: Thank God for the Jews. Thank-you, God for the Jews who have brought so much joy, light, and progress to this world.
