The Jews are not promoting brain washing the children in military training
camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of
Jews and other non Muslims!


The Jews don't hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics or blow
themselves up in German restaurants. There is not a single Jew that has
destroyed a church. There is not a single Jew that protests by killing
people.

The Jews don't traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death
to all the Infidels.

Perhaps the world's Muslims should consider investing more in standard
education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.

Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the
Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more
culpability on Israel 's part, the following two sentences really say it
all:


'If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more
violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more
Israel' -Benjamin Netanyahu

Yes, Palma, but the Arabs are not going to progress until their own leaders let them. The new head honcho in the West Bank is setting things right.

And planting a seed of democracy was one of the reasons we invaded Iraq.

If that's their culture and their land where does the problem exist?

Yes, there does certainly seem to be a bias against Muslims in Western culture. It can't all be language barrier, and they certainly have plenty of accomplishments and have made many contributions to literature, science, math and medicine through history.

How many of the Jews on the list are Americans and Brits, and how many Israeli?

I don't know, I'm asking. I think it's great to have pride in your heritage but I don't get how it's enhanced by tearing another group down.

I'm not sure what your comparison is supposed to prove. Jews are naturally smarter? better educated? more ambitious and industrious? what?

I'll leave the comparison to others.

The Arab world has been in decline for 5 centuries. Friedman details how far in his NYT column. A vaste wasteland where little very little is accomplished.

Must agree with Coll, that much of the Islamic world has let the modern world pass them by.

I also read andy's quoted article and found it very interesting.
The fatah elections surely give the world a window of opportunity for improving the chances of peace; I've got my fingers crossed....

The fact that we hear so little from Israel these days is good news; normally the bad stuff makes it out fast enough.

That really is encouraging news!
Fanaticism (religious, political, national, or whatever) flourishes when people have little hope for their own lives and that of their children. When people feel secure, they can afford to invest time, money, and energy in education, art, science and whatever else enriches our lives.
I pray this trend continues and becomes a model for others to follow.
