Comparing Germany/Japan to Iraq

Reader comment on item: The case for 'Iraqification'

Mr. Pipes, a question, please.
I cannot fathom any comparison between two social systems/governments that encouraged education and technological progress to Muslim mentality in Iraq. Moslem peoples do not and have not engaged in education of the masses, intellectual progress of society, or modern advancements. Germany and Japan in the least case valued these entities for their populations.
The question: Is is realistic to think any of the Arab nations desire what the other nations of the world diligently seek in advancement and modernization of their countries and peoples?

Is this observation within historical truth?
