Two Jews Win Nobel Prize in Medicine


Share Button

Two more Jews, both from the United States, and a German non-Jew won the Nobel Prize in medicine in Monday, while two Israel contenders lost out.

The newest Jewish Nobel Prize winners are James Rothman of Yale University and Randy Schekman of the University of California. The Israeli hopefuls  were Hebrew University professors Howard Cedar and Aharon Razin.

More than 20 percent of the 800 Nobel Prize winners so far have been Jewish although Jews represent only 0.2 of the world’s population.

The third winner Monday was Dr. Thomas Sudhof of Stanford University. All three scientists shared the $1.2 million for their research on how tiny bubbles are carriers inside cells, making sure that the right elements arrive at the right place and at the right time.

This year’s Nobel Prizes in other fields are to be announced  within the next two weeks.

UPDATE: And yet another Jew has won a Nobel Prize in Physics.

  8. Martin Jadro Lipocky says:

    Yeah, the Jews control the farmaco-lobby, "thanks" God they have invented so many expensive medications of which we are even sicker, why not to pay even more like half of salary. Thank you Jews, I'm going to worship you and take a bow in front of you, as we Goyims are born to serve you.

  9. Martin Jadro Lipocky says:

    The Jews themselves have invented the anti-semitism, they are anti-semitic as well, cause the Palestinians are also the Semits.

  10. Ramon Franco says:

    typical envious antisemitic comment from someone who is unable to compete in the real world so they resort to racist demagoguery

  11. Seagull LivingStone says:

    The founder of the Polio vaccination Jonah salks did not write it as a patent to make it available to everyone and thus gave up on being a multi milliarder in favor of helping humanity rid itself of polio plague.. please apologize , starting now !

  12. Sad and very dangerous. We all know what happend in Europe.
    "First they burn books, then they burn people."

  13. Martin Jadro Lipocky
    looser mentality.

  14. Victoria Ricciano says:

    Martin, the goyim are born to be consumers of the 1000's of patents of Jewish and Israeli origin.

    You and your fellow piece of s****t do what are good at: shut up and buy whatever they put you to buy!!!

    (or start showing strong principles by leaving Facebook- Jewish and Israeli).

    Principles??? what is that??? you just know how to hate (and consume)

    By the way i am not Jewish, but unlike your sort.. i consume and admire them!!

  15. Päul Gringauz says:

    Martin Jadro Lipocky What the **** are you talking about…

  16. Mrozek L. says:

    They dont practice any religion … why do they call them "Jewish"?

  17. Mrozek L. says:

    They dont practice any religion … why do they call them "Jewish"?

  18. Stella RZ says:

    Martin, Why dont you study and discover something yourself, instead of wasting your time hating.

  19. It is now obvious that one of the stimuli for the holocaust is Hitler's fear that Jewish excellence will disprove Hitler's Herren volk status for German Aryans.

  20. Why are the goyyim so envious of the success of Jews? Because the Jews confound their Bible new testament that claims irrationally that success and salvation can only come by belief in Jesus Christ and his death for sins of mankind
