Well, Here's an Amazing Little Essay

Remarkable article by a Muslim.

By: Dr Farrukh Saleem

The writer is an Islamabad-based freelance columnist
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 winning 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.

(Note: One of the Greatest Hollywood producers in the !950s was Cecil B. DeMill, a Jew)
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?


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 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 percent of its GDP.


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.


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.


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.

Quality education to be exact.

Uncontaminated education to be precise.

David's Complete Rotary Speech on the Failure of Drug Policy

Robert Werner came to the Rotary Club meeting in Chinatown at the Floata Restaurant last Wednesday. He did more than listen. He videoed my entire speech, which was called, 'THE TRUTH ABOUT ADDICTIONS: HOW GOVERNMENT ARE WASTING YOUR MONEY AND HELPING NO ONE."

You can watch the video by clicking on the link below.

If you find anything therein that you agree with, send it to your friends and enemies. The Nutty mayor and his cronies have the stage these days and we need all the help we can get to counter their lies.

Oh, The Times They Are A-Changing

"LONDON — Disputes over mosques have broken out across Europe. Residents from Belgium to France to Germany have expressed unease at minarets competing in the urban landscape with the spires and stones of centuries-old cathedrals.

But the fight raging over an abandoned lot in London’s East End is of an altogether grander scale. A large and secretive Islamic sect proposed building what would have been the largest mosque in Europe, smack at the gateway to the 2012 Olympic Games, and within sight of London’s financial district."

Those are the first two paragraphs of a story in the NY Times this morning with the ominous title: A Battle Rages in London Over a Mega-Mosque Plan.

Read the entire piece and try to come to a reasonable, balanced and useful opinion. Not as easy as you might think.

This story illustrates one of the great challenges of the 21st century - world-wide immigration and migration of large populations.

The Vancouver Sun yesterday reported that the most "popular" surname in town is neither Smith nor MacDonald, but Lee...or Li.

London is fast becoming a Muslim city, or at least, so many people fear.

The Mega-Mosque in question is said to be an incubator for terrorists. Truth? Or Fear-mongering? Or both?

US-Pakistan Alliance a Mess

Pakistan was never really on my radar.

You'll forgive my ignorance, but that is the only word that sufficiently describes my awareness of Pakistan.

Now that the country is under military rule I am slowly learning a thing or two.

For instance, I didn't know that the US, which doesn't have health insurance for its children and 45 Million other citizens, has been feeding $10 Billion Plus into the military in Pakistan in recent years.

It turns out that, as usual, the Americans thoroughly blinkered in their solipsism, have no real idea of Pakistan. So once again, as in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, they are now caught with their government issue khaki pants down.

Read the current debacle in this morning's NY Times.
