When/if they make a Jewish connection it is generally only to further their social or ideological point that has nothing to do with, or is contradictory to Judaism. The rest of the onlookers like to see the Jews as a successful/unsuccessful group depending on how they wish to spin pro or anti-semtic stereotypes. On the other hand, for those who want to connect to the many, many truly "proud" successful/wealthy Jews of the past such as Sir Moses Montefiore or the many who are alive today and doing real hesed/philanthropic work that supports Jewish/Israeli charities, one only needs to read the news or run an internet search.
