“Easy target but deliberately out of context, Edward! Followers of Jihadist media will be aware that in a discussion on Arabic language TV, claims were made of Muslims’ enormous contribution to science, scholarship and human progress. In fact the speaker claimed that the Muslim contribution was “the greatest” of any people’s. This is of course utter nonsense because meaningful scholarship in the Arab world not only preceded Islam by thousands of years but actually ceased with the advent of Islam in 638AD.

Dawkins repeated a fact stated by several historians to counter the deliberate revision of the history of Arabic scholarship by Islamists, who wish to deny the fact that Arabic science, research and contribution to technological advancement was suffocated by the totalitarian fear that Islam has displayed towards education and enlightenment of its adherents. In the pursuit of total control of the masses, literacy rates have been allowed to remain at less than 40% and ignorance is so widespread that meeting standards required to study or work overseas is rarely achieved. Dawkins’ Tweet was designed to slap the liars with the truth……1.5 Billion Muslims and 10 Nobel prizes since their inception, six of them controversial Peace Prizes. By contrast, from 1901- 2005, 170 Jews and persons of half-Jewish ancestry have been awarded the Nobel Prize, accounting for 22% of all individual recipients worldwide and constituting 37% of all US recipients during the same period. Jews currently make up approximately 0.25% of the world’s population and 2% of the US population. The two Semitic peoples were once equally committed to scholarship. Islam’s arrival dramatically altered the balance.”
