Since a few of you seem to think Islamic culture with Muslims have contributed much in the way of progress, development and making the world generally better, I'd ask you to please enlighten me as to what those accomplishments are.
wow, what an sarcastic statement. It sounds very absolute to me : Muslims and Islamic culture targeted entirely..
apparently only western civilisation has contributed to the progress of the world in your mind... if i'm wrong excuse my guess.
I think you should open your eyes on others (not only muslims by the way..)
Some muslim mathematicians :
# Ghiyath al-Kashi
# Abou Abdallah Muḥammad Ben Mūsa ʾal-Khuwārizmī
# Omar Khayyam ( 1048 - 1131)
# Abu'l-Hasan al-Uqlidisi
# Abalphat d'Ispahan (vers 990)
# Muhammad AboŻl-Waf‚ (940 - 998)
# Al-Biruni (973 - 1048)
# Al Hasan al-Haytham ę Alhazen Ľ (965 - 1039)
Some doctors :
* Ali Abbas

I can understand that in the context of our time there is much confusion, but to suggest that only one civilisation contributed to the advancement and progress of mankind meanwhile pointing an entire other part of this world as the source of all barbarism and bad there is, is not only oversimplified and wrong, it's a particularily dangerous mindset.
I would suggest you to travel over the world and to spend time with "muslim" people (wouh scary..) in malaysia, indonesia, some part of india, dubai, the emirates, mauritius island, morocco, south africa, france so you can see if muslim people there are sub-men and sub-women..
it's so easy to turn on oneself and fantasize.
Wow, i now sound harsh, excuse me Michelle if you feel it this way, it's not my intention, but as a westerner (french guy) not living in europe, this kind of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ annoys me.
excuse my poor english by the way.
