There was a lost age of Muslim innovation and invention that Muslims are not communicating to the West, he said. It is not included in the their history syllabus or textbooks either.

Innovations such as beheadings, the Jihad, petty intolerance, and blaming the JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSE? Advancements like that, Achmed?

Perhaps the original author can explain why in the last hundred years "Western" civilizations have cured most diseases that plagued THEIR countries, invented air conditioning, the internal combustion engine and Pasteurization, and have gone from clumsy experiments with gliders to walking on the surface of the Moon (the symbol of their religion, incidentally) while the scholarly Muslim world has invented only squatting on sand, pumping oil, and blaming others for their technological and societal shortcomings? (And blowing up their own children to punish the Infidel, of course.)

“Fatima vowed to spend her entire inheritance on building a mosque suitable for her community."

Really? She gave up the fortune given to her family in an effort to better entrench a belief system that could behead her for petty crimes and viewed she and all women as little more than property? What a good little woman! Her owners must have been so proud!
