Here is one glaring omission that caught my eye immediately. In 1979 three, not two were physicists awarded the prize: Sheldon Glashow, Steven Weinberg, and Abdus Salam.

They received the price for

"their contributions to the theory of the unified weak and electromagnetic interaction between elementary particles, including, inter alia, the prediction of the weak neutral current".

Even a non-scientist like me knows that the work of these three is in a category of its own.

Also from the official Nobel Web site, this bio on Salam:

Abdus Salam is known to be a devout Muslim, whose religion does not occupy a separate compartment of his life; it is inseparable from his work and family life. He once wrote: "The Holy Quran enjoins us to reflect on the verities of Allah's created laws of nature; however, that our generation has been privileged to glimpse a part of His design is a bounty and a grace for which I render thanks with a humble heart."

There may be other inaccuracies in your list, but I haven't the time to check.

Finally, remember what the fine print in the mutual fund sales brochures says: "Past performance is no guarantee of future results."

No, not if your strategy is to wipe all Jews so therefore you win by default. Islam a peaceful religion.
