So, yeah, we’re Jews. Yeah, we’re overrepresented on university faculties, in law and medicine, in the Senate, on the Supreme Court. [Don’t forget the blogosphere!!–DD.] Speaking of Nazis, we were overrepresented on the Manhattan Project, too. The most powerful country in the world, America, is one of the ones that has been most open to Jews. Look at the most anti-Semitic countries in recent history: Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, the Arab world. Right up there at the forefront of civilization and power, aren’t they?
