Robert Spencer on "Science, Islam, and Christianity"
In sum, there was a time when it was indeed true that Islamic culture was more advanced than that of Europeans, but that superiority corresponds exactly to the period when Muslims were able to draw on and advance the achievements of Byzantine and other civilizations. But when the Muslim overlords had taken what they could from their subject peoples, and the Jewish and Christian communities had been stripped of their material and intellectual wealth and thoroughly subdued, Islam went into a period of intellectual decline from which it has not yet recovered.
Yupp. That sums it all upp I think. How many cars has been constructed by the 1.4 gigazillion muslims? Spaceships? Computers? Railroads, electric light, refridgerators, central heating, Lego, microwave ovens, hifi systems, cell phones, DVD:s, huge breakthroughs in physichs, medicine, chemistry and other hard sciences. How many Nobel prices has been awarded to muslims living and working in muslim countrys? Heck, Sweden with only 9 miljon citizens (today) has 10 times more nobel laurates than the whole muslim umma. And let us just not get in to the Jewish laurates.
But exept from that. With the exeption of the Kurds- who are cultural arabs/muslims- even when not being actual muslims. Every terrorist deed over the past 15 years have been done by muslims!
I'm not saying that all muslims are terrorists- but (nearly) all terrorists are muslims!
