Reader comment on item: Counting Islamists
in response to reader comment: Response to Nura

I am sorry to say you Nura is the one so misinformed. If not for the largest transfer of wealth in human history by the West to the Muslim countries in the past 75 years they would still be in the stone age.

No, you have been misinformed. Hey, we can do this for the next decade, but you won't find me kissing concrete. You have actually proved my point. Despite how the wealth that went to these countries, it's there and our economy relies on it. If the Saudi's took their money out of the stock markets it would crash over night.

When did I say that All Muslims countries were rich? You need to pay more attention before you respond. I said that SOME of the richest countries are Muslims. Still disagree?

Furthermore, since when does a rich country = rich people? Inequality and poverty are direct result of Capitalism which was introduced to the Muslim world when Democracy was. Why don't you ask over half of Americans who are in debt and losing their houses as we speak if they are rich? Ask of the 37 million who live under the poverty level and 60 million who is barely over the poverty level. Ask the Americans about the citizens who dies each year because they cannot afford medical treatment. Ask about HUNGER in this country. Over half of this country has negative dollars. How is that for rich?

You want to judge Muslim countries about their establishments when they were invaded and raped by Europeans? Muslims were during good for themselves under the Kalifat. It is after the Khalifat was destroyed by the British while the entire Muslim world was colonized and brutalized by the French, British, Italians, Spanish, and Portugal, let me know if I left one out. If you cannot understand that correlation, let's look at Iraq. It was a moving productive society before it was invaded. Now it is just another waste land ran by American puppets and warlords. This is what it will remain. Don't talk to me about corruption in Muslim lands. If you are so concerned, you should support the re-formation of the Khalifat. This is the only type of Government for Muslims.

Dark ages? Islam has never been in the dark ages, it brought people OUT of the dark ages.

Don't forget the wealth of the West is largely due it's rape and pillage of the rest of the world including it's own citizens. What sort of challenge is this?

Islam does not have a country. It has a nation, and when this nation is united under one flag, this is when the corruption and sickness will end for Muslim people. The Muslim people are in a crisis, no doubt. It will take a revolution of historic proportions to revitalize Islam in these nations. This crisis was instilled with the appointed leaderships from the West. They love dictators in Muslim lands to make sure that Islam does not regain power in the countries, but Islam will prevail, and it should start with getting rid of these corrupt leaders. Their corruption has nothing to do with Islam, try again.

I could care less about the GNP ranking. What does your country Rank?
