By:  Dr Farrukh Saleem
The writer is the Pakistani Executive Director of the Center for Researchand Security Studies, a think tank established in 2007, and anIslamabad-based freelance  columnist.
Why  are Jews so powerful?
There  are only 14 million Jews in the world; seven million in  theAmericas , five million in Asia, two million in Europe  and 100,000 inAfrica . For every single Jew in the world  there are 100 Muslims.
Yet, Jews are more than a  hundred times more powerful than all theMuslims put  together.
Ever wondered why? Jesus of  Nazareth was Jewish. Albert Einstein, the most influential  scientist of all time and TIMEmagazine'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 thewhole  humanity: Benjamin  Rubin gave humanity the vaccinating needle. Jonas Salk  developed the first polio vaccine.Albert Sabin  developed the improved live polio vaccine.Gertrude  Elion gave us a leukemia fighting drug.Baruch Blumberg  developed the vaccination for Hepatitis B.Paul Ehrlich  discovered a treatment for syphilis (a sexuallytransmitted 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 theendocrine  system; diabetes, hyperthyroidism) .Aaron Beck founded  Cognitive Therapy (psychotherapy to treat mentaldisorders, 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 billionMuslims (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;Charles Ginsburg, videotape recorder.Famous  financiers in the business world who  belong to  Jewish faithincludeRalph Lauren (Polo),Levis Strauss  (Levi's Jeans),Howard Schultz (Starbucks) ,Sergey Brin  (Google),Michael Dell (Dell Computers),Larry Ellison  (Oracle),Donna Karan (DKNY),Irv Robbins (Baskin &  Robbins) andBill Rosenberg (Dunkin  Donuts).
Richard Levin, President of Yale  University, is a Jew. So are HenryKissinger (American  secretary of  state), Alan Greenspan (Fedchairman  under Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush), Joseph Lieberman (USSenator),  Madeleine Albright (American secretary of state), Maxim Litvinov( USSRforeign Minister), David Marshal ( Singapore 's  first chiefminister), Issac Isaacs (governor-general of  Australia ), BenjaminDisraeli (British statesman and  author), Yevgeny Primakov (RussianPM), Barry Goldwater (US Senator),  Jorge Sampaio (president ofPortugal ), John Deutsch (CIA  director), Herb Gray (Canadian deputyPM), Pierre Mendes  (French PM), Michael Howard (British homesecretary),  Bruno Kreisky (chancellor of Austria ) and Robert Rubin(American secretary of treasury).In the  media, famous Jews include Wolf Blitzer (CNN), BarbaraWalters (ABC News), Eugene Meyer  (Washington Post),  Henry Grunwald(editor-in-chief Time), Katherine Graham  (publisher of The WashingtonPost), Joseph Lelyveld  (Executive editor, The New York Times), andMax 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 anduniversities around the world.
Second to  George Soros is Walter Annenberg, another Jew, who hasbuilt a hundred libraries by donating an estimated $2  billion.At the Olympics, Mark Spitz set a record of sorts by winning  seven goldmedals.Lenny Krayzelburg is a three-time  Olympic gold medalist.Spitz, Krayzelburg and Boris Becker (Tennis)  are all Jewish.Did you know that Harrison Ford, George Burns, Tony Curtis, CharlesBronson, Sandra  Bullock, Billy  Crystal, Woody Allen, Paul Newman,Peter Sellers, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben  Kingsley, KirkDouglas, Goldie Hawn, Cary Grant, William  Shatner, Jerry Lewis andPeter Falk are all  Jewish?As a matter of fact, Hollywood itself was founded by a Jew. Amongdirectors 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), MilosForman (One flew over the Cuckoo's Nest),  Douglas Fairbanks (TheThief of Baghdad ) and Ivan Reitman  (Ghostbusters) are all Jewish.
So, why are Jews so powerful?
Why are Muslims so  powerless?
There are an  estimated 1,476,233,470 Muslims on the face of theplanet:  one billion in Asia, 400 million in Africa, 44 million inEurope 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 andfor 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 ofIslamic Conference (OIC), and all of them put together  have around500 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 Rankingof World  Universities' , and intriguingly, not one university fromMuslim-majority states was in the top-500.
As  per data collected by the UNDP, literacy in the Christian  worldstands at nearly 90 per cent and 15  Christian-majority states have aliteracy rate of 100 per  cent.
A Muslim-majority state, as a sharp contrast, has an  average literacyrate of around 40 per cent and there is  no Muslim-majority state witha 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 attendeduniversity while no more than two per cent  of the 'literates' in theMuslim 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  researchersis 35,000 and there are only 50 technicians  per one million Arabs.(in the Christian world there are up  to 1,000 technicians per onemillion).
Furthermore, the  Muslim world spends 0.2 per  cent of its GDP onresearch and development, while the Christian world spends  aroundfive per cent of its GDP.Conclusion: The Muslim  world lacks the capacity to produce knowledge!Daily newspapers per 1,000 people and number of book titles permillion are two indicators of whether knowledge is being diffused in asociety.
In Pakistan,  there are 23 daily newspapers per 1,000 Pakistanis whilethe same ratio in Singapore is 360. In the UK , the number  of booktitles per million stands at 2,000 while the same  in Egypt is 20.     
Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to diffuse  knowledge.
Exports  of high technology products as a percentage of total  exportsare an important indicator of knowledge  application.
Pakistan 's export of high technology  products as a percentage oftotal exports stands at one  per cent.The same for Saudi Arabia is 0.3 per cent;  Kuwait , Morocco , andAlgeria are all at 0.3 per cent, while Singapore is at 58 per cent.   
Conclusion:  The Muslim world is failing to apply knowledge.
Why are Muslims powerless?
.....Because we aren't producing knowledge,.....Because we aren't diffusing knowledge.,.....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  producegoods and services (mostly oil) worth $500  billion;Spain alone produces goods and services worth  over $1 trillion,Catholic Poland $489 billion andBuddhist Thailand $545 billion...... ( Muslim GDP as a percentage of world  GDP is fast  declining ).
So, why are Muslims so powerless?
Answer:  Lack of education.
