6 million jews dominate 300 Million Arabs! I do not think so...they can not dominate Gaza strip and the west bank..don`t fool your self!

America dominat(ed) not only the Arabs but the Latinos, the Turks, the Persians etc...and now the rules of the game are changing and they are having problems controling herdsmen in Afghanistan..

Jews brought idea! yes, that is absolutly true. I prefer to say that Jews really contributed to human development. Especially in areas of Medicine, Nuclear Science and Physics. To say they brought it all is a wishful unrhymed poetry.

WHO SHOULD GET CREDIT for Modernization accomplishments!! In deed the European worker class that revolted in France and England mailly. Unless those people paid blood for what we have now, may be you could still join the work force at the age of 9 and do the 14 hours shifts...

The credit I give to the Jews is:

They fought for minority rights in the western world and established laws in late 1800s and early 1900s that protect them as a minority. Subsequently many other Minority groups benifired from these laws without having to fight for them..so that is a great participation that none can deny..

The Arabs! yes they worked a bit hard and they are now retired. Their trust fund is the oil reserve. Once it is empty, they will think development!!

By the way, where is the wishfull 300 million Arabs existing!! the (Arabs by race) are a minority in all Arab countries except the gulf states and arabia and Yemen. Real Arabs (not by nationality by race) do not exceed 100 milion in my estimation or may be way less.

Morroco, Algeria, Tunisia: Vast majority Berbers

Iraq: Persians, mongols, turks, Azaris etc..very little real blooded Arabs

Egypt: mostly coptic, but they are said to be the minority in one the biggest world crimes against culture..

Lybia: nomade beduines where only some bands originate from Arabia..

It seems that you classify who ever has an Arab state passport to be an Arab..That is the crisis of information in an information technology era...
