>It is imperative that a complete technology blockade be enforced against the Muslims. This would ensure their evolution into the 21st century as they will be forced to place resources into education and infrastructure.<

That is a tall order. Technology spreads by hook or crook. Especially military technology and destructive technologies.These are desired by Muslim countries and free lance Jihadist groups like Bin laden. Frankly it is not difficult to obtain 60 year old Atom bomb technology given a few million dollars, an intelligence organization which is detrmined to get it , both the hardware and the skills which are needed to put the technology together.

In the next 15 years many Muslim countries and groups like Hamas or Somali warlords or counries like Iran or Morocco many very well possess , either openly or stealthily, nuclear and chemical bombs. There is a lively international black market for all these stuff. Thousands of Russian and Ukrainian technologists with enough tech knowhow are avialble for a price. North Korea will gladly sell short-range and medium range for a few million quid.

While it is easy for Jihadist groups and governments to get destructive technology, which will remain far inferior to Kaffir technology, they will remain mired in tribal social and political technology thanks to islam. More they are motivated to aquire 'Islamic bombs' , more they will be pushed into Sharia state and 7th century tribalism by these motivations.
