There are only 14 million Jews in the world; seven million in theAmericas, 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?
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
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. 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
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
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
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

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.
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
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?
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 percent. 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
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
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
So, why are Muslims so powerless?
Answer: Lack of education.
"Say: ′We believe in God and that which has been revealed to us; and what
was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and their descendants, and that
which was given to Moses, Jesus and other Prophets from their Lord. We make no
distinction between any of them, and to God we have surrendered ourselves."
The Holy Quran, 2:136
