Nuclear bombs were invented by 1800 authors, than the math was worked out.

Banking? Banking is older than Rome.

And why are those things wrong anyway?

I would stop worrying about everyone else, and start looking at yourself. Thats all that matters...

but also, America didn't join WW2 until nearly half way through... we didn't want to interfere... until the japs bombed us.

Some of the other islamic contributions to science - algebra, astronomy, medicine (if hadnt been for them many of the early medical advances from the egyptians, greeks and romans would have been lost to the world. along with continuing to practice and expand medical knowledge when all that christians or jews did was pray if someone fell ill and condemned practice/study of medicine as being "evil" or "the work of the devil") are just a few of the contributions to the world made by islamic scolars. Contrary to western belief islam does encourage learning along with open intellectual discourse..

Barak Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize two months into office. I don't consider the "honor" meaningful. Also, considering the number of Israelis or Jews who have won, you might consider that evidence of who's in charge of who gets a Nobel Prize.

User "woodwardjnr", when you say they helped in the Haiti earthquake, do you mean they contributed financial help or did they get off their butts and do what financial contributors paid others to do?

It's amazing the anti-semitic trash that is flooding over ATS these days. Most of you should be ashamed of yourselves, but then I have to remind myself that hatred of the jews is a built in satanic response for those who are controled by evil and are on their way to hell. It was prophesied in the Bible that the whole world will hate Israel and be destroyed because of their unjust persecution of Israel.

Nevertheless I will respond to this retarded thread, even though it doesn't deserve it.

At least 180 Jews and persons of half- or three-quarters-Jewish ancestry have been awarded the Nobel Prize,1 accounting for 22% of all individual recipients worldwide between 1901 and 2009, and constituting 36% of all US recipients2 during the same period. In the research fields of Chemistry, Economics, Physics, and Physiology/Medicine, the corresponding world and US percentages are 27% and 39%, respectively. Among women laureates in the four research fields, the Jewish percentages (world and US) are 38% and 50%, respectively.3 (Jews currently make up approximately 0.25% of the world's population and 2% of the US population.)

35. A new acne treatment developed in Israel, the ClearLight device, produces a high-intensity, ultraviolet-light-free, narrow-band blue light that causes acne bacteria to self-destruct — all without damaging surroundings skin or tissue.

36. An Israeli company was the first to develop and install a large-scale solar-powered and fully functional electricity generating plant (in southern California's Mojave desert).

Finally for the moral infants among you, Judaism is the root of the worlds most successful religions, Christianity and Islam. But more importantly it is the Jews who have given the world the messiah, Jesus Christ, God's only Son. The only way that man may be saved and reconciled to God.

No wonder you hate the Jews. They are God's chosen people.

Stating that the Jews gave the world the Messiah, Jesus Christ as if it were a matter of fact, then backup up the statement with allegations of everyone else being "retarded" is, I believe, a great example of a non-sequitur.

Myself, I am German. I say German because most of my great grandparents were born there. I am also one quarter "Jewish", but I never speak of myself as such, because I don't believe that Jews are a race, neither do I believe if you follow the religion it makes you a Jew.

What all Jews have in common is that they call themselves Jews. I don't think much else binds them. As far as race, genetics, appearance, ancestry, nation of origin... Jews are so varied that the label no longer makes any sense.

But what does upset me whenever I hear about "Jews" discussing themselves, is the attitude that the creator of the universe has some special preference for some of his creation over others. Further, that this attitude is used by some (not all) to excuse behavior that would be inexcusable in any other situation.

Everyone should act right, regardless of what "people" you think you are a member of. And using God's will to support your argument when the god you speak of seems to be invisible, inaudible, and untouchable is merely grasping at straws to find an excuse to excuse yourself.

Get real.

get above these threads that drag us down. NO, we should not ignore what the Israelis do, and don't do, but it is very difficult to separate the Israeli government from the Israeli people, just like any other country.
Israeli people can be good. Their government can be bad.
Substitute any other country for Israeli.

We have the POWERFUL, and we have THE REST OF US. OIL AND WATER.

That is the universal truth.

Great post..My feelings exactly...

Everyone blames "the people" for what their leaders do...

There is a difference between an individual Jewish person and Israel as a country. Many Jewish people have been scientists that have discovered great things so it simply seems racist to ask have the Jews helped anyone.

Israel is another matter and it depends where you stand. If you were all for the Gulf wars then yes Israel helped by supplying landing strips and even troops. If you don't support these wars then Israel really hasn't done very much in the world other than cause trouble.

Once again though, it's very wrong to compare all Jewish people with the actions of Israel.

That's actually a pretty good point. Just pick any country in the entire world and I can point to an era in history where they behaved as bloodthirsty savages, with scores of human rights violations.

Pick any Muslim nation and it's a no brainer. How about one of our favorite enlightened ultra liberal nations. Sweden maybe? Anyone ever heard of the Vikings?

Why don't you pick on those pesky Vikings. Still causing trouble I'll bet. One day they are acting all civilized and modern, with those northern european good looks and the next day, its the horned helmets, red beards, long boats and mass slaughter. I don't think they've ever been brought to justice for their crimes.....

Don't you think it's a bit odd to single out a nation and race for unrelenting hatred? Doesn't that tickle your BS meter just a bit? Especially since they are the only democracy in the middle east and the only place in the Middle east with a semblance of basic human rights.

I agree and its great to see many posters pickup on that...

We are all people of the earth. For the most part we have all been brainwashed from birth to do and hate as expected by our leaders.

At birth we are a clean slate, a pupil.
To me there are NO bad pupils, just bad teachers...

BTW anyone calling me anti anything should look over my posts here and in other threads..

Like some have noted, in the heat of a thread we sometimes forget and attack the people (citizens) instead of their leaders....

A HUGE majority of Australians and Americans have been against most wars but what do our leaders do?? They send our children to die...

Seems to happen a lot with live news coverage. Maybe it's kind of like New Zealand not being in the right place?

America (Gov) and Israel (Gov) are one in the same. And everyone knows that America helps everyone. (Extreme Sarcasm) No disrespect to the majority of American people, just their Government.

Get you facts straight and quite frankly how dare you put Australian war dead at 3,000 soldiers. Hope it was just ignorance and not intentional insult to our dead, who indirectly died helping Israel’s would be citizens.

Australia lost 61,513 troops in WW1 alone out of only 4,000,000 at the time. Casualties are even more staggering.

If the author of this thread had no agenda to elicit anti-Jewish sentiment from other posters, why did he phrase the question the way he did? You are asking two distinct questions "have Jewish people in history helped non-Jews?" and "has the country Israel helped other countries?" but purposely lumping them together to insinuate that there is no distinction between the two.

"Well hey, Israel only looks out for its own interests so therefore so do Jews. I guess the Protocols are real after all."

Read my other posts, or did you just read the opening post??

I've read most of your replies and can notice a pattern according to my own perspective. I'm not claiming to know your thoughts, but I can recognise when somebody pretends to encourage serious discussion on an issue, uses examples to support this claim, but steers the rest of the thread in the direction of the opening post.

On the other hand this could all be inside my own head. I could be wrong and judging you harshly. If this is the case then I apologise, but instinct tells me my first assumption was probably more accurate.

No hard feelings

Thank you for coming into this thread and giving everyone a good example of why people may hate Jews. Like all religions they have fundamental extremists and you are one of them.

Your opinions are almost no different from a radical Muslim.
