You can pretty much write a benchmark for any 2 languages that
specifically targets the weekness of one and the strength of the other
showing that one is better than the other by a wide margin. You can
usualy reverse the argument with a different benchmark.

So your argument as such says nothing about JVM, just something about
your benchmarks.
