ISLAM DESTROYED NATIONS
Nonie Darwish wrote in her book Cruel And Usual Punishment: “Muslim societies have not contributed much to humanity, but have actually destroyed and sucked away the talent and innovation bit by bit from the nations they conquered.” (p. 172).
Response:(What malarkey! Informed individuals must be laughing their heads off at your ignorant if not arrogant charge).
While it is true that non-Muslims were under the employ of Muslims (and were paid for their services), it was Muslims that brought light to mankind. (See 1. NONIE DARWISH-critics).
After the World War II defeat of Germany, the U.S. (as noted on the Internet) collected “military and scientific booty;” scooping up some 1600 German scientists and their families (and doctors and engineers) for American usage. America most likely owes her rocket and space program to these brilliant German minds. Would you say that America “sucked away the talent and innovation bit by bit from” these German (captives?)
Jews slaughtered and occupied some thirty “ites” kingdoms and “concubinized” little “virgin” girls. Would you say that Jews “actually destroyed and sucked away the talent and innovation bit by bit from the nations they conquered” and slaughtered to have their lands and “virgin” girls?
Contrary to Nonie Darwish’s fanciful charge that “Muslim societies have not contributed much to humanity,” here are some Muslim contributions to humanity.
– ed T.
-Ibn Yunus, a “genius in science,” invented the .
-Kutubi made the first watch.
-Muslims invented the mariner’s compass.
–ed the (contrary to popular belief that the Chinese invented gunpowder).
-Ibn al-Hashem invented –invented the “Astrolabe” (instrument for measuring the earth)
-Arab chemists were the first to manufacture soap.
–“–, a mathematician, constructed the first observatory in Europe (in Spain).
-Muslims developed the Algebra of the Greeks to higher applications. Invented “Spherical trigonometry,” and “the “tangent,” etc. Invented the invaluable “zero.”

(Averroes, Avicenna, Alhazen, Saladin –Salahuddin Ayyube, the majestic liberator of Jerusalem– don’t you just adore the way the West/Christians adulterate the names of Muslims, just like they adulterate their “Book of God.” Perhaps by adulterating the names of Muslims they are trying to obliterate or obfuscate the truth that these benefactors of humanity are Muslims).
(The material on Muslims contribution to mankind is voluminous. Just “Google” The Islamic Scholar, or Muslims contribution to the world, or Muslims contribution to Science, or Muslims contribution to Medicine, from where I gleaned my information).
In contrast, as her history attests, and as already shown, the Christian “blight” trashed everything science and progress. And when they booted Muslims out of Spain, they turned the astronomer’s observatory built by into a belfry and made a Mosque into a horse stable; the Christian “blight” also demolished the public bathhouses Muslims had erected –fifteen hundred years after Christ ‘cleanliness had not yet come to Christianity’ in the words of one narrator (quoted from memory).
Though Christianity is still mired in spiritual uncleanness –attributing injustice to God (that he put Adam’s/Eve’s sin onto all humans and even from the womb and then putting every man’s sin onto Jesus); making God complicit in murder (that He sent one man, and an innocent one, to be killed for everybody’s sin and not even some human government kill the innocent for the guilty); gave the Eternal God a son; trumpeted that the Omniscient God/son of God needs to eat “butter and honey” so “he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good,” and, what must be the “mother” of all blasphemies, the Christian culled God into a sperm (and whose?) and confined Him into the womb of a woman He created and drew Him out her vagina (and called her Mother of God”), have Him nursed her paps, and circumcised Him, to make Him scapegoat for the sins of the world (denying God’s Supreme and Majestic qualities of mercy and grace, to forgive without need for some “satisfaction”).
