YES, I know what you’re thinking. If Elon Musk is really the richest and smartest person on the planet, then how come he’s not Jewish?
It’s a mystery, isn’t it? Like you, I was raised to believe that all the cleverest people were Jewish: Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, Dr. Jacob Bronowski, Gerald Kaufman (I was in Gorton last week — do you know they’ve named a street after the great man?).
But few of the tech titans are Jewish. Certainly not Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos.
Mark Zuckerberg is Jewish but he was accused of stealing the idea for Facebook from the Winklevoss twins and had to pay them $20 million in a settlement — so maybe he doesn’t count.
