Dear Mr Rubble

Your initial piece was so riddled with errors and exaggerations that I'm certainly not going to waste my time educating you. But it is is interesting that you cannot provide one example of an Islamic educational institution on a par with the world's leading (Judaeo-Christian) centres of research and learning. But if you have time on your hands ... I suggest the excellent website jihadwatch.org where Robert Spencer actually has debunked the outlandish claims Muslim fascists such as yourself are prone to making about Islam's contribution to the arts, sciences and humanities. Perhaps you might also acquaint yourself with the relative position of the world's 57 or so Islamic states compared to the world's successful, developed, human rights respecting countries measured against indices of prosperity and societal wellbeing?
