Does this explain the preponderance of Jewish lawyers, too? Or Jewish jewelers?

If the Arabic peoples are not out there winning secular awards, maybe it's because they are more interested in spiritual endeavors.

Yeh, like blowing up 3000+ innocent people, or sending an unending stream of psycho-bombers to murder babies and women.... Some religion!?!?
Islam = false religion

Sure they are interested in spiritual endeavors, such as killing infidels and training their young ones to be homocide bombers.

Yes, we've seen plenty of those spiritual endeavors on the streets of Jerusalem and elsewhere. I'd suggest if they want to see Allah, that they do so by themselves, and not take innocents with them.

A long time ago, Islam had a flourishing and scholarly culture. Then the fundamentalists took over, a thousand or so years ago, and Islamic culture has stagnated ever since. About that time, Europe pulled itself out of the Dark Ages, and the West has left Islam in the dust ever since. They know it, and they resent it. . . .

Nah...not so much spiritual as in just in blowing things up and hating everyone for being so much better.

Maybe its because they send their wives into the fields to tend the crops and their kids into the streets to beg while they sit in the local cafe drinking tea and picking their toenails.

(The sitting in the cafe and picking the toenails bit is from someone I know who was raised in Egypt)

Yeah. That must be it. Spiritual endeavors. Like killing Israelis, Americans, Christians and Hindus around the world.
