Well AAA if the ratio was 5 Muslim Inventions for every 3, or 3 for every 5 maybe you would have a case, but the ratio would be closer to 1000 American inventions for every Muslim one.

You obviously cruise the Islamic propaganda websites, as opposed to any real source of information. I find it amusing the claims of all these so called muslim inventions, where the reality is very different.

If you look at the number of Universities in the top 500 in the world that are in Muslim Countries? There are 3, if you look at the number of Noble Prizes for science or the arts that originate with Muslims in Muslim countries, there are 4, if you look at the number of true Muslim inventions that are still used today, I could probably count on one hand, that is setting aside the suicide bomb vest.

Muslim literacy, Muslim low levels of academic achievement, is well below the world average. These are facts not muslim propaganda and fantasy.

Why do you think that most claimed muslim discoveries happen to be in areas recently conquered by Muslims? Spain, Constantinople, India, these are where most Muslim "Inventions" originated and they all originated within a few years of being conquered, so safe to say there were still intelligent and innovative person there until Islam dumbed down the populace.

Where are the great Muslim Inventions from Cairo and Mecca? Well?

Less then 1% of the total worlds scientific papers and journals originate for Muslim countries.

Those are facts AAA not some rubbish claim that wings were invented by Muslims in the 15th Century.
