The Jews are not promoting brain washing the children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non Muslims.
The Jews don't hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics.
The Jews don't traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.
Perhaps the world's Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.
Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel's part , the following two sentences really say it all:
If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence.
If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel
.

This culture had evolved impressive intellectual, religious and artistic pursuits.

    n 770, an Indian scholar brought two highly important mathematical works to Baghdad eg Brahmasiddhanta (Sindhind to Arabs) by the great 7th century Indian mathematician Brahmagupta –a mathematician and astronomer –which contained early ideas of algebra. The second manuscript contained a revolutionary system of denoting number and the concept of zero. In the 9th century, Muslim Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi took this work, combined it with Greek geometry (The Greek contribution in science, medicine, philosophy is huge), to become what we call today as algebra. Indian numerals were used by al-Khwarizmi in algorithms (a Latinized version of his name) to solve certain mathematical problems. Hence Muslims may have contributed but they certainly did not discover either zero or algebra and our so-called ‘Arabic Numerals’ are actually Indian (Hindu) Numerals.(Khan p 202) In Brahmagupta’s Khandakhadyaka (Arkanda), Arabs first became acquainted with a scientific system of astronomy in the 8th century. Books of medicine, toxicology, philosophy, chemistry and more were also taken into the Islamic world and translated. Indian mathematics became wide spread. Even a Spanish Muslim (11th century) praised the Indians for their superior knowledge in astronomy, mathematics, medicine, pharmacology, chemistry... .(Khan p 203-4). (Note Mayans also developed zero long before Islam entered the world!)



    India’s greatest mathematical system, the decimal system used today was the work of 3 great mathematicians—Bhashkaracharya and his daughter, Lilavati, and Brahmagupta.

    Marco polo noted the praiseworthy female Rudramani Devi who ruled Telugu for 40 years (Khan p 255).

    All achievements are coming from least extreme streams in the Islamic world, and it is proving right.
    See achievements in major Islamic world, and compare it to: let's say Dubai.
    It only proves the point more moderate Islams are more likely to achieve more...
    another example showing the same is: Iran in the Shah's era vs. Iran nowadays.
    You can also see the differences between Islamic cities in Israel (Palestine Authority) Gasa Hamas extremists vs Jericho or Hebron moderate.

    Are Nobel Prizes the way to measure scientific and academic achievement? I do not consider it a valid measure. From the middle ages and throughout history, Islamic thought preserved Aristotle and re-introduced it to the west, improved the arts of medicine and scientific thinking, and was for the most part ahead of the west academically until the dawn of the Modernists. This question is put here just to cause suspicion of the other. Prejudice and malice will not get us to world peace at all.

    PHILOSOPHY
    * Muhammad Iqbal November 9, 1877 Sialkot – April 21, 1938 Lahore) sought an Islamic revival based on social justice ideals and emphasized traditional rules, e.g. against usury. He argued strongly that dogma, territorial nationalism and outright racism, all of which were profoundly rejected in early Islam and especially by Muhammad himself, were splitting Muslims into warring factions, encouraging materialism and nihilism. His thought was influential in the emergence of a movement for independence of Pakistan, where he was revered as the national poet. Indirectly this strain of Islam also influenced Malcolm X and other figures who sought a global ethic through the Five Pillars of Islam. Iqbal can be credited with at least trying to reconstruct Islamic thought from the base, though some of his philosophical and scientific ideas would appear dated to us now. His basic ideas concentrated on free-will, which would allow Muslims to become active agents in their own history. His interest in Nietzsche (who he called 'the Wise Man of Europe') has led later Muslim scholars to criticise him for advocating dangerous ideals that, according to them, have eventually formed in certain strains of pan-Islamism.

His interest in Nietzsche (who he called 'the Wise Man of Europe') has led later Muslim scholars to criticise him for advocating dangerous ideals that, according to them, have eventually formed in certain strains of pan-Islamism. Some claim that the Four Pillars of the Green Party honor Iqbal and Islamic traditions.[citation needed]
    * Riaz Ahmed Gohar Shahi (25 November 1941 - 25 November 2001) author of "The Religion of God". Gohar Shahi sought a spiritual revival based on Divine Love of God and emphasized Self-Purification through Dhikr-e-Qulb (Remembrance of Allah with HeartBeats). Gohar Shahi was invited to mosques, hindu temples, churches, Sikh temples, Imam Bargahs to deliver speech. He was the first ever Muslim Spiritual Leader who was invited by people of all faith in their places of worships.[3] Gohar Shahi was in favor of divine love and considers it most important for an approach to God and no discrimination of caste, creed, nation or religion is accepted for Divine Love of God as every human has been gifted with an ability to develop spiritual power to approach to the essence of God. However, orthodox theological scholars criticized and condemned the teachings of Gohar Shahi.[citation needed]
    * Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi, who is credited with creating modern Islamist political thought in the 20th century, argued that science was itself merely re-discovering that all matter and energy obey laws, and that Kafir claims that humankind was free of obligation to comprehend and obey such laws, had to be resisted by Muslims. Caliphate and Monarchy was his most important work. He established the Jamaat-e-Islami in India. This and the Egyptian Ikhwan al Muslimin ("Muslim Brotherhood") were revivals of the tarika tradition and committed to religious, political, and intellectual reform of Islam. Nasser exploited the latter to gain power in 1952 but then turned against the Brotherhood, murdering and torturing many members. The leader Sayed Qutb was executed with five others in 1966. But the key difference between the Indian Maududi and the Egyptian Qutb was that the former accepted democratic means, albeit of a limited form. This contrasts with Qutb, who developed a liberation theology, requiring "true" Muslims to declare war on anyone who opposed their ultimate goal.[citation needed]
    * Muhammad Hamidullah (February 09, 1908 - December 17, 2002) belonged to a family of scholars, jurists, writers and sufis. He was a world-renowned scholar of Islam and International Law from India, who was known for contributions to the research of the history of Hadith, translations of the Qur'an, the advancement of Islamic learning, and to the dissemination of Islamic teachings in the Western world.[citation needed]
    * Allameh Tabatabaei was a Shi'i Muslim philosopher and marja. He was the teacher of Mortaza Motahhari and Musa al-Sadr.[citation needed]
    * Morteza Motahhari was a lecturer at Tehran University. Motahhari is considered important for developing the ideologies of the Islamic Republic. He wrote on exegesis of the Qur'an, philosophy, ethics, sociology, history and many other subjects. In all his writings the real object he had in view was to give replies to the objections raised by others against Islam, to prove the shortcomings of other schools of thought and to manifest the greatness of Islam. He believed that in order to prove the falsity of Marxism and other ideologies like it, it was necessary not only to comment on them in a scholarly manner but also to present the real image of Islam.[citation needed]
    * Ali Shariati was a sociologist and a professor of Mashhad University. He was one of the most influential figures in the Islamic world in the 20th century. He attempted to explain and provide solutions for the problems faced by Muslim societies through traditional Islamic principles interwoven with and understood from the point of view of modern sociology and philosophy. Shariati was also deeply influenced by Mowlana and Muhammad Iqbal.
    * Musa al-Sadr was a prominent Muslim intellectual and one of the most influential Muslim philosophers of 20th century. He is most famous for his political role, but he was also a philosopher who had been trained by Allameh Tabatabaei. As Professor Seyyed Hossein Nasr said: "his great political influence and fame was enough for people to not consider his philosophical attitude, although he was a well-trained follower of long living intellectual tradition of Islamic Philosophy". One of his famous writings is a long introduction for the Arabic translation of Henry Corbin's History of Islamic Philosophy.[citation needed]
    * Syed Zafarul Hasan was a prominent twentieth-century Muslim philosopher. From 1924 to 1945 he was professor of philosophy at the Muslim University, Aligarh - where he also served as Chairman of the Department of Philosophy and Dean of the Faculty of Arts. There, in 1939, he put forward the 'Aligarh Scheme'. From 1945 until the partition of the sub-continent, Dr Hasan was Emeritus Professor at Aligarh. Dr. Zafarul Hasan was born on February 14, 1885. He died on June 19, 1949.[citation needed]
    * Ismail al-Faruqi looked more closely at the ethics and sociology of knowledge, concluding that no scientific method or philosophy could exist that was wholly ignorant of a theory of conduct or the consequences a given path of inquiry and technology. His "Islamization of knowledge" program sought to converge early Muslim philosophy with modern sciences, resulting in, for example, Islamic economics and Islamic sociology.
    * Seyyed Hossein Nasr, a political ecologist, argues that khalifa in Islam is fundamentally compatible with ideals of the ecology movement and peace movement, more so than conventional interpretations of Islam. He argues for an ecology-based ecumenism that would seek unity among the faiths by concentrating on their common respect for life as a Creation, i.e. the Earth's biosphere, Gaia, or whatever name. Pope John Paul II has made similar suggestions that "mankind must be reconciled to the Creation", and there is a Parliament of World Religions seeking a "global ethic" on similar grounds.[citation needed]
    * Fazlur Rahman was professor of Islamic thought at the University of Chicago and McGill University, and an expert in Islamic philosophy. Not as widely known as his scholar-activist contemporary Ismail Raji al-Faruqi, he is nonetheless considered an important figure for Islam in the 20th century. He argued that the basis of Islamic revival was the return to the intellectual dynamism that was the hallmark of the Islamic scholarly tradition (these ideas are outlined in Revival and Reform in Islam: A Study of Islamic Fundamentalism and his magnum opus, Islam). He sought to give philosophy free rein, and was keen on Muslims appreciating how the modern nation-state understood law, as opposed to ethics; his view being that the shari'ah was a mixture of both ethics and law. He was critical of historical Muslim theologies and philosophies for failing to create a moral and ethical worldview based on the values derived from the Qur'an: 'moral values', unlike socioeconomic values, 'are not exhausted at any point in history' but require constant interpretation. Rahman was driven to exile from his homeland, Pakistan, where he was part of a committee which sought to interpret Islam for the fledging modern state. Some of his ideas from English (which he claimed were from the Islamic tradition) were reprinted in Urdu and caused outrage among conservative Muslim scholars in Pakistan. These were quickly exploited by opponents of his political paymaster, General Ayyub Khan, and led to his eventual exile in the United States.[citation needed]
    * Akbar S. Ahmed is an anthropologist, filmmaker and an outstanding scholar on Islam, International Relations/Politics and Contemporary Islamic philosophy from Pakistan. He is Ibn Khaldun Chair of Islamic Studies at the American University in Washington DC and was the High Commissioner of Pakistan to UK. He has advised Prince Charles and met with President George W. Bush on Islam. His numerous books, films and documentaries have won awards. His books have been translated into many languages including Chinese and Indonesian. Ahmed is “the world’s leading authority on contemporary Islam” according to the BBC.[citation needed]
    * Javed Ahmad Ghamidi is a well-known Pakistani Islamic scholar, exegete, and educator. A former member of the Jamaat-e-Islami, who extended the work of his tutor, Amin Ahsan Islahi. He is frequently labeled a modernist for his insistence on the historical contextualization of Muhammad's revelation in order to grasp its true moral import.[citation needed]
    * Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is a well-known proponent of cultural reconciliation between the Muslim World and the West, basing his views on Classical Islamic governance's similarity to Western governance models in terms of religious freedoms and democratic inclination. Abdul Rauf is a highly-visible American-Egyptian Imam at New York's Masjid al-Farah in addition to being Founder and Chairman of Cordoba Initiative, a non-profit organization seeking to bridge the divide between the Muslim world and the West.[citation needed]

    Was that from wikipedia? The only reason I ask is because they are asking for citations. After what happened to Rush Limbaugh and other republicans lately on wikipedia I usually look for citations. That does not mean I'm discounting this information.

    i know i am being anti-intellectual by using wikipedia. i should take the time to verify everything on here but i didn't have time. the point though is that there are wonderful, inspirational, dedicated people in the middle east and africa, who are Muslim and who want a better world. unfortunately all we see are the evil people. it's as if an iranian person for example thought of ivan the terrible, hitler, stalin, and their ilk when they thought of the west.

    I don't have problems with wikipedia. I think it's a great resource most of the time and I learn a lot from it. I have met many Muslims in my profession and found them to be very intelligent. One guy was from Iran and I would have loved to get to know him but he was a short time contractor.

    As far as evil. We must keep aware or we will suffer the consequences. I won't stick my head in the sand when it comes to this because my people and family have suffered when the world ignored (or disbelieved) this.

    Long, long and boring.
    Long article to obfuscate the truth, which is that there cannot be any social justice based on Islam.

    Islam is unjust to the core.
    According to Koran and Hadith and life of Muhammad, women are inferior to men. Men are supposed to beat their wives.
    Men are allowed to rape their wives.
    Girls as young as 9 years old, can be subjected to rape in a forced marriage.
    Islam says that Christians and Jews will be punished in Hell. (Great tolerance).
    Sharia, the Islamic law, does not accept equality of Jews, Christians, and Hindus.
    Above all, Islam is based on Muhammad, Every Muslim must imitate Muhammad a rapist, liar, and a pedophile who raped a 9 year old "wife" Aisha.
    A mass murderer who personally oversaw murder of 600 - 900 Jewish prisoners
    of war who surrendered to him.
    No more justice in Islam then in Nazism. Get over it.

    Had anyone checked these claims for a fact?
    for every 1 Islamic (who is proven to achieved the claimed record) you can find more than proven 10 from the non Islamic world of which 5 will probably be Jewish... and that is more than the Islamic ratio in the world.

    Can you substantiate that Jawed Karim is a Muslim???
    Yes, he had a Bangladeshi father (and a German mother). There is NOTHING in his biography that indicates that he was brought up Muslim.
    Certainly there are intelligent people born in every country. Bangladesh was India, before it was raped into Islam. Yes RAPE was the main means of conversion. Millions of Indian women were raped by the Muslims and then forced to become their wives.
    Persia had a high civilization before Persians know well that Islam is the ideology of the primitive Arab occupiers.
    There is nothing in Jawed Karim's biography that indicates that he is a Muslim. I suspect that you made it up.

    As for the others that you mention here, just because they had the misfortune to be born in a Muslim occupied territory, it does no follow that they were Muslims.

    This is the 2000's and not the 1200's.

    Why do you not consider the awarding of prizes for scientific achievement a value of measure?

    Ignoring the political prize (peace) the Nobel prizes winners are selected by their peers for the highest achievement in their respective fields.

    If there is something in a culture (which is extremely small in population) that promotes that achievement, then maybe people ought to look at that culture to see why it has been so successful.

    Likewise, if a culture (which is extremely large in population) has a dearth of achievements in a scientific field, then maybe people ought to examine that culture to see why it has been so unsuccessful.

    After examination of the values that cause success and failure, then one can make value judgments and adopt the positive values but rejecting the negative values.

    That is, there may be something in the values of the Jewish culture that promotes academic achievement and likewise, there may be something in the values of the Islamic culture that demotes academic achievement.

    is this the only measure - the nobel prize? have other measures been taken for other scientific prizes? http://www.aaas.org/aboutaaas... why select just one measure?

    I think the Nobel prizes are the biggest and most prestigious. They certainly get the attention of the media.

    I have never heard of AAAS. I have worked with electrical engineers and physicists here in Silicon Valley all of my working life and we all know what a Nobel Prize is worth.

    It may have some value but I do not think my associates would trade a Nobel for an AAAS award.
