International Bankers don't really make their profits from their share in the Federal Reserve. You can see for yourself that the Federal Reserve usually gives back most of its profit to the US Treasury. (~$25 billion last year)
The Federal Reserve is useful for controlling the economy, but it's not really a profit center itself. (for example it can contract money supply causing depressions like in 1929 or right now, in 2009)
Where International Bankers make their money is through Fractional Banking. You see, the same money can be lent out multiple times at great profit. Essentially, lending money that doesn't exist except on a computer screen and in the process creating a great deal of inflation.
I wrote a comic describing the process a while back:
Page 7 describes Fractional Banking.
