Why are Jews so special for the United States?
April 20, 2012 11:53AM
Attractive and even flattering as the concept may be, there's actually no evidence to suggest that Jews are anything special for the US. In fact, one of the nation's founding principles is that nothing like that shall take shape here.

Asked in World War 2, Germany in WW2, Adolf Hitler
How important is Hitler actions as a leader of Germany in World War 2?
Obviously, Hitler's atrocities are well-known, and his aggressive moves eventually lead to the outbreak of the war. But because he was persecuting Jews, many Jews came the the United States. Among these were scientists like Albert Einstein and many of the scientists that developed the atomic bomb for the United States. So, if Hitler had not persecuted the Jews, it is possible that he could have ended up with the atomic bomb instead of the United States.

What is the population of Jews in America?
The population of Jews in America is about 5,500,000. This is a small percentage of the total United States population (<2% US population). There are expanded estimates that say that there are an additional 2,000,000 or so Jews who do not identify as Jews on the US Census, but the accuracy of these claims is debated.
Asked in Diphtheria
Why is diphtheria so common in the un United States?
Did the US send a lot of Jews to Israel?
No, at least not from a governmental position. The United States, unlike many countries, has never forcibly deported its Jewish citizens or put them in a social, political, or economic climate where leaving the United States was the only viable option. On the flip side, the United States has never incentivized (monetarily or politically) for American Jews to go to Israel. The only Jews that America assisted to get to Israel were a small minority of Holocaust survivors. Most Holocaust survivors who did get to Israel did so without American assistance. While there are many American Jews in Israel, this is more of a function of how many Jews in the world there are in total after the Holocaust destroyed much of European Jewry. There are larger Israeli communities of Russian, Moroccan, and Iraqi Jews than American Jews.
