this is actually true - but no thanks to Islam itself.

what the Crusaders saw in the Middle East, and the scientific books they discovered there layed the groundwork, and the final impulse came from the foreign trade carried out by the Italian city states. if it had been up to the Muslims, there would have been no Renaissance, only Dhimmi...

unfortunately for Islam, it has progressed basically *zip* since the Middle Ages...
