Netanyahu, Zuckerberg among Jews on Forbes’ most powerful list


Several prominent Jewish men appear on Forbes’ latest list of the world’s most powerful people, including the Israeli prime minister.

Ben Bernanke, chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve, was ranked at No. 8; Sergey Brin and Larry Page, co-founders of Google, ranked No. 22; New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg came in at No. 23 and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu came in at 24.

“As leader of an undeclared nuclear power, Netanyahu remains the biggest menace to Iran’s nuclear ambitions,” Forbes said of Netanyahu. “The people on this list were chosen because, in various ways, they bend the world to their will. They are heads of state, major religious figures, entrepreneurs and outlaws.”

The list had 68 names. The No. 1 spot was captured by Chinese President Hu Jintao. President Obama came in second. Osama bin Laden was ranked No. 57.

Other Jewish businessmen on the list include Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, ranked No. 40, and Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs, at No. 42.
