Now this is about a fascinating argument which I keep on seeing floating around. The sheer intellectual challenge behind this argument is so powerful that I think it just slips people by. Some questions?
1. What is the link between Judaism and success? What are the Jews doing according to Judaism that the Muslims are not doing? Since the factor of identification is religion, then there is something obviously better in Judaism than in Islam, no? Or did I get that wrong? or was the author wrong in slicing people by religion?
2. If being successful is that easy to belong to Judaism, then a simple answer, just convert to Judaism, and bingo, you will immediately become rich, famous and successful. No?
3. If Judaism is indeed the common factor and reason for all these being rich and famous, then why is Islam missing it? Surely that's the common element that these authors miss?
4. Gosh, what happened to the Christians and Hindus and Buddhists? I suppose their religions are also not good, eh?
5. But looking at say most of the Nobel Prize winners, they are Christians, so the Jews should convert to Christianity and so should the Muslims and the Buddhist.
I can go on, but I suppose you get the point. By pointing to human scientific progress and charitable giving as being purely linked to religion, these people condemn their own people to a lifetime of failure. Why? because they will look for answers in their religion. No, that is not the case, science, knowledge and success is religiously independent. Speak and talk to people in China if you want to learn and be successful. The author identifies the problem and the cause but because his eyes are simply focused on Muslims, his answer and solution are useless.
And this keeps on happening, again and again, wake up, Muslims (and others who want to be successful and knowledgeable) get away from these religious peddlers of false hope. If you dont believe me, then try to imagine the link between Jesus, Albert Einstein, Israel and US Foreign Policy. Soft brains, I tell you, bizarre. Here is a version of this document which are floating around, but the email added this bunch of rot.
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?
Answer: GOAL, DISCIPLINE, EDUCATION, UNITY & NETWORKING are their KEY to POWER... All including Jews agree that Muslims are more intelligent but AREN'T TEAM PLAYERS and a have short sightedness problem.
WHAT IS YOUR BELIEF? DO YOU HAVE ANY GOAL, ANY MISSION? ANY OBJECTIVE?
There must be a reason for our Existence!!! WHAT is it? THINK AND DISCUSS WITH FELLOW MUSLIMS WHO KNOW MORE THEN YOU "HOW CAN YOU CONTRIBUTE IN YOUR PERSONAL CAPACITY TO MAKE MUSLIMS POWERFUL"
!!! THINK AND PLAN!!!!
