More gobbledygook by our dear Ali Baba who is really an Arzal!

>As far as contributions to science/technology/arts it must be worth remembering that the body of academic work that the West has produced was made possibly via the industrial revolution of the 19th century, and that was due to the Rennaissance of the 15th-18th centuries, and that only occurred due to the transfer of work from midieval Islamic scholars to the West during/as a result of the Crusades. The Arabs and Persians produced perhaps the largest volume of human advancement during the Islamic Golden Age, but even they had built on contributions made by the ancient Indians and Chinese. Human advancement isn't owned by any one nation or race. It is owned by all of humanity together.

Baloney!

Let me help you: And this is only a very very short introduction to the transmission of the Greek learning and it is as follows:

1. The books of Greek learning were translated to Syriac and then to Arabic by Nestorian Christians (Not Muslims or Arabs) and it took place in Baghdad at Dar al-Hikma in the 9th century

2. Even your Allah must have been an avid reader of Ptolemy's Almagest

3. Your Arab masters tell us that they burned the books of Greek learning at the Library of Alexandria and at the Persian library at Ctesiphon and at the Buddhist library at Nalanda and it was Western scholarship that proved that this is a big fat lie except for the Nalanda library in India

4. The Greek learning that was translated to Syriac and then to Arabic was then translated to Catalan in Spain by the Jews (not by Muslims) and then it was translated from Catalan to Latin by monks in Spain and the west regained its literary treasures Nothing to do with Islam or Muslims!

5. The Byzantine empire was also another source of the literary treasures of the Greek learning that ended in Europe after the fall of Constantinople to the Turkish Muslim invaders

6. More? The decline of Europe and the dark ages can be blamed on the Islamic invasions of the 7th century!

Oh more? The rule of your Arab masters in their own so called Islamic civilization was marginal at best. Even 70% (as per Ali Dashti) of the books of Tafsir, Arabic grammar, Ahadith, Tarikh (history) and scientific books were written (not by Arabs who were busy looting and enslaving the likes of your Hindu ancestors) by Persians! Islam without the Persians would have been what it was supposed to be: barbarity, Imperialism and colonialism and that is it

The Arabs had no interest in science or math. Looting? That was their specialty

You see our dear Ali Baba the great German historian Carl Becker said and I'm paraphrasing: Without Alexander the Great there would have been no Islamic civilization! In other words without the Greek learning there would have been no Islamic golden age

And I would add: And the Persians made Islam what it is and the Arabs know that very well

Shame on you for your nonsense
