It's not because they are smarter that they are 'succeeding.'
It's because studying the Old Testament at a young age gives them the headstart in reading -- just as the recitation of Confucian works among Chinese kids gives them an edge over European Neanderthals.
Since the Chinese and Jews are equally smart (one of the reasons why China could make progress so fast when the political environment allowed them to do so), the fact that there are far more Chinese than Jews means that in absolute terms Chinese can beat Jews hands down.
Don't place too much emphasis on Nobel prizes etc. as determinative factors in evaluating IQs. College entrance exam scores showed that Chinese kids did better than Jewish kids.
In addition, what's the use of high IQs if those who have it end up as unscrupulous thieves without any qualms about engaging in illegal activities?
For instance, nearly every one of the Israeli leaders after Rabin was assassinated had been involved in criminal activities including presidential rape and larceny.
And Netanyahu is involved in THREE big cases of corruption at this very moment.
So long as non-criminal activities are concerned, one Chinese can beat a thousand Zionists as has been unequivocally proven in these forums.
