If one was to say that African Americans excel in Music, Basketball, or Boxing, wound would be lest likely of being called a racist. But if one were to point out how in the 19th and 20th century Jews excelled in mathematics the Race Card would pop up.

The historical phenomena of American Racism after the end of slavery, and the take over of Germany by Hitler during the Nazi period when American was just as racist angst African Americans as Hitler's regime was even more racist against Jews (6,000,000) makes it extremely difficult to assert cultural or historical excellence. The world is still paying the price for its recent past evils. Colonialism and Imperialism brought Modernity and the Industrial Revolution to the whole world, and this process still continues. The American and French Revolutions also brought human rights to the whole world, while the Communist Revolutions of Russia and China are still not exti9nguished as alternatives.

It is in this context that one should consider the Jews in Israel and the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. The Israelis produce, in 75 (19048) years (or since 1898 when Herzl published his Jewish State before the Balfour Declaration of 1917, a thriving industrial almost miraculous thriving and productive state on land which was mostly desert and swaps. What have Palestinians produced? A Muslim Brotherhood theocratic dictatorship in Gaza rule by Hamas and its military competitor side-kick Islamic Jihad, while in Gaza the Palestinian Authority under Abbas has morphed into his un-re-elected Octogenarian dictatorship supported only by the United Nations and the countries that pretend that his administration somehow represent the interest of his Palestinian people.

In summary, the Muslim Arabs known as Palestinians have failed by any metric one chooses; but the Jews of Israel have succeeded. In this context the obvious Palestinian Question which remains is the pressure to create ASAP a failed-state in Palestine under Abbas or Hamas? Or should the Jews continue their Close-Settlement of Palestine rather than wait - for what? Whatever happens, it seems obvious that Jews will not do to the Palestinians what the Palestinians want to do to the Jews.
