Proud Infidel ranting about the ongoing war against democratic and secular values (Don't fool yourselves)! Maybe a voice of sanity in a wide ocean of madness.

Arabian acceptance of multiculture


"Interestingly, the United Nations, in its 2002 Arab Human Development Report, found that the total number of books translated into Arabic each year is no more than 330, or one-fifth of those annually translated in a small country like Greece. Indeed, the total number of books translated into Arabic during the last 1,000 years, since the age of Caliph Al-Ma’moun, (a ninth-century Arab ruler who was a patron of cultural interaction between Arab, Persian, and Greek scholars) to this day is less than those translated in Spain in one year."

Even more intersetingly is that one of the few books that has been translated to arabic- and that are a bestseller year after year in the arab countrys is "Jihad"... Uhum, sorry a slip of my tounge there, I of course ment to say "Mein Kampf"! Same, same...
