I accept the argument that generally ethnic , religious and racial minority rally behind ideologies which offer them an even playing ground. To claim that all Jews who were proponents or adherents of Marxism were so out of opportunism. Is however not only simplistic It is insulting Jewish intellectual?s contribution to to socialist thought is part of the contribution of Jews to the intellectual development of world civilisations Marxism, was originated by a Jew, Karl Marx, some say partly as an influence of his grandfather?s rabbinical thought (Certainly we find a strong Jewish participation throughout the socialist movement which from inception up to its present day has been largely dominated by Jews) Wrote Joseph Jacobs in the Philadelphia Jewish Publication Society of America 1945. In similar but not identical manner one can trace Arab Nationalist thought to developments within 19th century Europe .Here again the driving force has been a minority ,the Arab christians. The major Arab Nationalist parties at the beginning of the twentieth century and up to the 1960s were dominated intellectually by Arab Christian .
