Muslims have contributed very little to the world when examining the history of technology that’s dominated by Western civilization

President Obama has said on multiple occasions that Islam or Muslin has contributed greatly to world history. Well, like many things that come out of Obama’s mouth, it isn’t true. Examine for yourself a timeline of the history of technology going back 5 billion years and you’ll be very hard pressed to find a Muslin , Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs or Sir Isaac Newton. In fact the overwhelming majority of technological advances, with some noted exceptions in Asia, originated in the Western civilization, many of them Christians.

        If some minority group ever accuses me of cultural appropriation…

      • Observer

        They haven’t built everything. They didn’t create the scimitar nor the suicide vest.

        Sorry, those two items prove your claim about “everything” to be incorrect.

          OK. They developed Logic then. There.

            They seem the only ones capable of it at times, leftists and Luddites excluded .

          The scimitar was made from steel imported from Ceylon.
          The suicide vest was pioneered by the Tamil Tigers.

          And women invented abortion.

  • They have too made a major contribution! They have kept The Dark Ages alive in their own lands and now they have been invited to reprise them in ours. Islam is a cultural Jurassic Park!

    But what about the “Golden Age of Islam”?

    I’m surprised the allah boyz haven’t done more with execution and torture machines — they have such aptitude and passion.

    When Europeans first arrived in Japan, they brought guns with them. The Japanese were manufacturing them en masse six months later.

    Korean police were sent to guard South Korea’s only mosque after terrorists beheaded a Korean national:

    These former hermit kingdoms, now major global players, have more to offer than the more beheading of the human race.

    The article downplayed certain Jewish contributions to technology, so here is a corrective link showing key Jewish contributions to computer science.

    In addition, the article omitted the following important Jewish contributions to aviation.
    Otto Lilienthal invented the hang glider and developed the fundamental principles of aeronautics that guided the Wright Brothers in their designs.
    David Schwarz invented the dirigible airship. (His widow sold the patent to Count Zeppelin.)
    Abraham Karem invented the military attack drone.

      And let’s not forget their numerous contributions to music and the arts…something often overlooked.

    The less your race has contributed, the more you whine about and exaggerate the few things your group has done.

    Muslim and Arab supremacy is so deeply embedded in their own minds that they genuinely do not believe that anything outside of their own love of themselves even exists. This is why the colonial empires so easily conquered them with very little manpower. The Muslims simply did not believe that they could be bested or that there could ever be a better way of war fighting than men with swords on horseback.

      Do you know how France conquered Algeria? The French assembled all the tribal elders and the wise men and then had a magician named ‘Houdin’ ( Houdini named himself after the guy) “catch” a bullet in his mouth. A French regular fired a blank at Houdin, and then Houdin spit out the ‘bullet’ the regular had fired at him.

      The wise men and tribal elders were absolutely amazed.
