Muslims cf. Jews

Post by Dreamweaver » 20 Aug 2017, 19:38

Is this racist? Or culturist? Or what? It's a different view of Muslims, or the Muslim world, written by a Muslim.

A smart and educated person isn't always popular. Some people think them too smart for their own good. :lol:
Also I'm inclined to think if the Muslim countries had that same high educational level we would see a difference in statistics.

It isn't fair to generalise, but if religion plays a part, Judaism is more a thinking religion, and Islam one of the heart. Given equal education the figures might end up reversed! :twocents-mytwocents:

If you look at the geographical location of muslims they seem to concentrate in tropical regions.
There is a thing called 'curse of the tropics',- poverty and political strife are rife.
Oil has dragged a few out of the mud but even they struggle.
To me Islam is a broken cult, locked into a cycle of death and destruction.
it is not going to end well.

it is very simplistic to say if only we just educated them more everything would be ok.
Osama bin liner had a university degree.

That does seem to be the solution he's suggesting, Buck. Not that 'we' educate them, but he seems to be blaming themselves for not enough of them getting sufficient. Which doesn't seem quite fair. As for Bin Ladin he is hardly representative. There are crackpots in all nationalities and religions, and I don't know what percentage statistics would be. Certainly we've had war criminals and other bad apples who weren't Muslim. Yes, some were quite well educated too.

One thing is clear. Jews write the best musicals.
