Forbes: 11 of Top 50 Wealthiest

In Tablet, the Jewish magazine, Rose Kaplan has a piece (undated) titled “Report: Some Jews, Mostly Men, Are Very, Very Wealthy“. She discusses Forbes’ annual list of the world’s richest people. She notes that “11 of the top 50 on the list are Jewish”, which of course warrants a column in a magazine (one of the many) dedicated to All Things Jewish:

There’s Mark Zuckerberg, the fresh-faced 31-year-old CEO of Facebook, whose worth about $45 billion. Zuckerberg, of course, took on the Herculean task of moving much of our social world onto the Internet. And thanks to him, it’s easier than ever for more people than ever to know what you’re up to all. the. time. It’s also easier than ever to post pictures in which you look your best, thus creating a new you, like a shiny orange. Some recent news about Zuck: Last December, he and his wife announced that they would donate 99% of their Facebook shares to charity.

There’s also Larry Ellison, 71, who comes in just after Zuck at a net worth of about $43.6 billion. Ellison made his money by founding Oracle, a tech company, in 1977. He’s also really, really into sailing. Some recent news: Ellison has donated a lot of dough to a Rubio super-PAC.

And, of course, there’s Michael Bloomberg, the 74-year-old, three-term Mayor of New York City who made a fortune with his business and financial news company, Bloomberg LP. He’s worth about $40 billion. But if he had a dime for every time he said he may be considering a run at considering a run at the White House, he might have a little bit more.

And don’t forget about Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the co-founders of Google, that search engine you share your deepest, darkest secrets with that is the world’s most valuable company. In other words: Your searches=$$.

Sheldon Adelson, 82, is worth $25.2 billion. Mostly because of his casinos in Vegas. But the real question is: Who will he endorse in the 2016 Presidential race? Can you imagine a Trump-Christie ticket backed by Sheldon Adelson? What is happening?!

And then there’s—OK, let’s learn about some of the women, so here are the rest of the men: George Soros, Michael DellJoseph SafraCarl Icahn and James Simons.

What strikes me as most odd: If a white gentile wrote the words above, noticing the same things, and didn’t change a single word above, that same person would immediately be branded an anti-Semite.

How is that only Jews are allowed to ‘notice things’ about Jews. When they notice patterns and discuss them, it’s okay. If a gentile does it, it’s anti-Semitism or that bigger canard ‘white supremacy’.
