Four of Top Ten Net Worth Gainers Are Jewish

Jews make up four of the 10 biggest gainers in net worth in 2013, as listed by Forbes. Among the Jews are Google co-founder Larry Page, whose mother was  Jewish, who was raised without religion and who intermarried.

The biggest jump in bank accounts was that of gambling casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, whose net worth jumped $15 billion this past year to $37, making him America’s 11th richest person. Forbes noted that in day-to-day terms, Adelson earned $41 million daily, not bad for a day’s work.

The second biggest jump in “wages” was for Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook’s stock offering helped his net worth more than double, to $26 million.

Next in line is Amazon’s Jewish CEO Jeff Bezos, who net worth grew by  $13.3 billion to $36.9 billion.

The fourth Jew is Page, who came in ninth place with an increase of $9.4 million and a net worth of $30.5 billion

The remainder is non-Jews, including four members of the Walton family of the Wal-Mart company, Warren Buffet and Bill Gates.

    I believe Adelson was once a taxi driver. He did not inherit any of this. Furthermore, I don't believe he even went to college. A real "yiddische" kup. Even married a Jew, unlike Zuckerberg or Page.

    We are proud of Adelstein as he kept to the Jewish faith and earned his money properly. Bloomberg and others had to marry outside the faith and their children did so as well so not know their heritage is an embarrassment to Judaism. The Nazi's took these type of people who were NOT accepted by the pagans and sent to the death camps. We have the most beautiful men and women. The pagans marry us for our brains, brawn and sexual prowess that is lacking from the pagans.
