      No there is an essential difference here. US WASP power is directed towards power here in the US in their own country. Much of the Jewish power in the US is soley directed towards the advancement of the interests of a foreign power Israel at the expense of US interests. And the funding of that is taken out of the pockets of the US taxpayer.

Those qualities themselves are indeed positive attributes. The problem comes in how the economic and political power that success engenders is used and manifested.

      It seems that all people, whether or not they are identified as a member of a particular group or sub-culture, use whatever power they are able to grasp to advance their own interests. For example, you could say that economic and political power in the USA largely has been held by White Anglo-Saxon Protestants (WASPs) and has been used by that large and prominent group for its own ends and advantages. Perhaps the world would be better off today if that particular group had held less power during the last century or two, who knows. When American conservatives criticize Jews, or any other ethnic group, for seeking power and making use of it to whatever extent they are able, it is like the pot calling the kettle black.
