*New members

Since Jews make up 5% of the population in America at the most do they have a greater representation in Congress than other groups? They have 14% of the Senate which is almost 3 times what they should have. In the House they have a mere 7%. Is this right? Why do the poor, persecuted and powerless Jews have so many of their own in the Senate? Is it to counter the power of some other group? Is it for self preservation? Or could there be a conspiracy by them to control America? Think about it!
