part of ol' Gentile me says good for them... http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1191257286817&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull I was reading an article entitled "Are Jews smarter?"....one thing really caught my interest. Jews in the middle ages, because they were considered second class citizens, were forbidden from labor jobs....so they proceeded to get schooled in math and accounting and sciences (and other professional jobs, like law). So the article went on to say that generation after generation of Jews stayed in those fields, making them more genetically prepared to propagate offspring that would continue to excel. I am not a fan of any particular race of people, but the irony here is pretty beautiful. I think the moral of the story is that, from a Jew-hater's perspective, only the Egyptians got it right - forcing them to build the pyramids.
