Put or shut up. Provide links to factual data to back up your B.S. or shut the heck up. You are appearing to be a trolling racist to me.

Nothing wrong with Jewish people. If you really want to see a culture completely taking over a place though, move to SoCal.

30% of the NYC metro is Jewish!? Where are you getting that from!?

You're talking out of River Edge- You're right next to Teaneck, Bergenfield Dumont, and New Milford... Jew Haven.

This has to be the most idiotic thread I've seen on here in some time.

And Happy Holidays to the OP.

Agreed. I came on because I thought there was a slim chance it was an actual question about history. Like "why did Jewish immigrants from Europe come here in such numbers instead of to Canada or Australia or something?" Although that might be a false premise too as Brazil has a fair amount of Jewish people. One of the few Jews I met in real life was Brazilian.

Because although the US does have one of the highest numbers of Jewish people in the world they aren't evenly distributed. The average is 2.2%, but many states are well below that average. Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming all look to have less than .5% of their population be Jewish. Of those Arkansas, the Dakotas, Idaho, Mississippi, Montana, Oklahoma, West Virginia, and Wyoming look to only be .1% Jewish or less.

Jewish Population of the United States by State

The show "Saving Grace" dealt with this when their lab guy asked "Am I the only Jewish guy you know?" and they kind of sheepishly answered "Well yeah, kind of." Although the urban parts of Oklahoma I think are somewhat more Jewish. From what I recall the Jewish population is more urban than American average. The following map will give a more county-by-county sense of distribution. Although I should say that it and the "Jewish Virtual Library" might not be a 100% accurate.

Anyway paranoid concerns don't take into account the Jewish population is stable, or declining, and that they're not even the most affluent group by religion. That's Hindus. (A slightly higher percent of Jews make over $100,000, but a higher percent of Jews than Hindus make less than $30,000)

Pew Forum: Income Distribution Within U.S. Religious Groups

Although Adherents only goes up to the 109th Congress in that Congress Christian Scientists were more overrepresented than Jews. Traditionally Episcopalians and Dutch Reformed are very overrepresented in high office. (I skipped Unitarian as they aren't that overrepresented in the Congress they list)

http://www.adherents.com/adh_congress.html#109
http://www.adherents.com/adh_presidents.html

Even if one were to be paranoid it makes little sense to think a stable group that represents 2.2% of the population, which has a diversity of schools of thought within itself, somehow is "taking over." At least nervousness about Dutch Reformed, Episcopalians, and Hindus would be something different.

I'm not saying there's something wrong with them... they should stop taking control over America !

There are 2.2% Jews in the U.S., but they are taking 98% control over the nation

lol, I REALLY hope the OP is just doing this as a joke and isn't that ignorant.

Jews taking over the country? Are you serious? Get your head out of religion and bigotry and wake up.

Who are you talking about? Mexicans? That's racist.

At least Mexicans are Christians... the more mexican immigrants = higher Christian population
