    Okay, let me clear it up, but this is my final post on this topic.

    I'm a Russian/Ukrainian Jew (you would call me a Jew, but by technical Jewish law I am not, as other, real Jews may point out) so I am not anti-semitic.

    Where I am from there is a joke/stereotype that Jews make good economic decisions because of intelligence, trading skill and just general luck.

    Our history is full of turmoil, which is why the joke exists. "Ivan, pack your bags, we are moving." "Why?" "Because the Jews are ". etc.

    Case closed.
    Thanks for explaining

    A bizarre antisemitic statement.
    I thought antisemitism had to be negative?
