“And my question to you was what would make it ideal for the most successful, wealthy and powerful ethno-religious group in the US? “ Keith
I will answer that although not for your benefit as you parrot Shahak and Finkelstein like these two discovered the cure for cancer. In reality Jews are not “wealthy” and powerful but almost exclusively middle class individuals who often chose professions such as law, medicine, architecture, finance etc. That’s because Jews place a high value on education and financial stability. In your world being a doctor is “privilege”. The reality is that it is hard to be in the professions. As someone at a pretty high level in government finance I can tell you that my decent salary comes at a very high price – many years of education, responsibilities that often make me lose my sleep. Getting a little more money and an office can be soul crushing, and yes, abilities, ambition, luck come into play too. What doesn’t is me being Jewish as there are no other Jews to “help” me. Now, these billionaires you keep talking about are statistical aberrations. Take 10 million people who have good professions and you will see that a tiny number of them will rise to the very top of the food chain. Then people like you and various bigots focus exclusively on these exceptional one- in -a -million tales (Zucherberg, Ellison) and draw incorrect conclusions. Part of the problem is the weak math abilities of the general population who do not understand statistics. It’s like drawing conclusions about blacks from Scotty Pippen.
