Most of you have probably seen this, andit is not brought as any kind of proof, but interesting if you haven’t seen it

by Mark Twain:

“If the statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the

human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of star dust lost in the blaze

of the Milky Way.

Properly the Jew ought hardly be heard of; but he is heard of, has always

been heard of.

He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial

importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk.

His contributions to the world’s list of great names In literature, science,

art, music, finance, medicine, and obtuse learning are also way out of

proportion to the weakness of his numbers.

He has made a marvelous fight in this world in all the ages, and has done it

with his hands tied behind him.

He could be vain of himself and be excused for it.

The Egyptians, the Babylonians, and the Persians rose, filled the planet

with sound and splendor, and faded to dream stuff and passed away.

The Greeks and the Romans followed and made a vast noise and they are gone.

Other peoples have sprung up and held their torch high for a time. But it

burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished.

The Jew saw them all. Beat them all, and is now what he always was,

exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts,

no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind.

All things are mortal but the Jew. All other forces pass, but he remains.”
