Some people describe businessman and billionaire George Soros as the man of Israeli money and the Jewish financial machine. They also hurled other accusations at him. None of them reaches the level of accusation, but this is only in the eyes of our people.
The rest of the seven billion people in the world have a different view. Once a person is a Jew, this automatically makes him bad while being unaware of the Jews’ deeds generally in science, medicine and human well-being especially in the last 150 years, at least.
The problem of many of us is that once they hear a Jewish word, various signs of suspicion, doubt, stories and theories of conspiracy fill their hearts and minds as if the Jews are a global scourge which must be uprooted. This matter is not like that and it should not be viewed with such naivety.
George Soros was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1930. He migrated to Britain in 1947 after surviving the Holocaust, studied and graduated from the London School of Economics. He later decided to migrate to America.
Soros is considered one of the world’s best businessmen, the largest currency trader, a great philanthropist and one of the world’s 30 richest people.
The success of George Soros began in the early 1970s when he founded the Quantum Fund managing $12 million which increased to tens of billions of dollars within 40 years.
George Soros is known as the man who broke the Bank of England in 1992 when he speculated $10 billion based on the belief that the bank would be forced to reduce the value of the sterling pound. He gained a lot from the speculation.
In 2011, Soros founded the Open Society Foundations and donated $11 billion of his own funds to fight poverty, increase transparency in government work, protect minorities and human rights around the world, and fund scholarships. The funds and efforts of Soros also played a vital role in liberating Eastern European countries from communism.
Last October, Soros donated $18 billion – the largest in history, making the fund second in the world after the Melinda and Bill Gates Charity Fund.
If Soros is a Zionist, as some described him to be, he would have donated all his money to Israel and enjoyed rest and relaxation as he is on the verge of the 90th year.
O evil people, stop your envy.
