Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?
in response to reader comment: Who discovered Arab oil?

Submitted by GS (Singapore), Oct 16, 2008 at 07:10

How could the author say that Muslims would be barbarians without the Americans?!?! Does he not know of some wonderful inventions invented by....the MUSLIMS.For example the first water clock was invented by a Muslim.The first artificial weather simulation room was invented by a Muslim. The father of early medicine was a Muslim. So again i ask, how could the author say that Muslims would be barbarians without "American Brainpower". Americans are NOT the only inventors in the world!

Also, I have read stories of the poor muslims being turned down by American officials for citizenship. If Americans are so civilised, why the harsh act?
Not all Muslims became suddenly rich when oil was discovered,some are still left poor, so get the fact that Saudi Arabia's full of rich people out of your head!
