Because the saying is only an observation, not a fact written in stone. Losers write history too, as do neutral parties and impartial observers.

It's not true. Observers write history, often decades or even centuries later.

No it isn't true.
History is written by historians, it is peer-reviewed by other historians.
Anyone, of any religion, race or environment, can become an historian.
The kernel of your question is that "Jews get so much input" this is debatable and undefined, there is no indication of what "so much" amounts to or even what "input" is.
But let's start from the beginning, there is no reason a Jew cannot be an historian, they are not excluded because they are not conquerors (nobody is at the base level).
However, it is possible to claim that some groups are less well-represented in the ranks of historians, those that, historically, have had reduced access to the higher education that is virtually a requirement to become an academically respected historian.

No, it is not true and it is also not true that "Jews get so much input in Western civilization's history".
Of course, by using the words "so much" you are trying to imply that there is an disproportional amount. And of course, you will not be providing a logical method of making such a determination nor will you be providing any sort of argument as to why that may be an issue.

Winston Churchill once said "History is written by the victors" Does one man's great quote make it true or absolute? Hell no, just something to think about.
For instance you bring up a good example. The fact that you feel Jews get more input into western civilization than they deserve really seems like opinions pushed onto you by the "victors" at the top of society.

No, Jerome. In civilised democracies, ANYONE may write history (why are you calling it 'hisstory', btw?). I may, you may, even our own pet Holocaust Denier Dave (that's him disguised as a sand-timer) may write history.
Of course it's always best if people stick to the facts rather than omitting, distorting and quoting out of context. Real historians may interpret the facts as they see fit, but they NEVER distort or lie.

I'll bet the winners didn't write the history books in Japan and/or Germany. Even to this day, some complain how they were mistreated during WW II, and afterward. To hear them tell it, they were blameless in the whole thing. And did practically nothing wrong??

No, it's just what cynics say who put down and criticize everything anyway. To them everything is a con, everything is a scam, a cheat, it's the cynics world view but it's not reality. History is as real as it gets. it's just a record/ a log of what happened.
