Reader comment on item: Ali Mazrui, Antisemite

Submitted by Frank Adam (United Kingdom), May 25, 2010 at 14:59

This Mazrui stuff ( that a friend sent to me from your site) is plain anti-white racism for the most part which makes a better target than Antisemitism. Mazrui is also plain wrong and ignorant as the foremost Jews of the medieval period: Maimonides, Al Fasi, Caro all came from the most advanced culture zone of that time, namely the Moslem (Spain) world.

It really is time the Arabs Moslems and blacks took the chip off their shoulders and asked themselves why the Islamic World could not keep up with Europe after 1700 - or from the other end of the telescope to corroberate: why Europe overtook the Islamic World in 1500 - 1700? Further why did the Africans despite having bought more than enough guns as currency for selling slaves to the Atlantic Triangle Trade, not do better.

It is pretty obvious that India and China did more than well enough compared to Europe in pre-industrial times - and that Japan caught up almost instantaneously in a single generation when it decided to; ditto China in our lifetime. So why did the Moslem World and the Arabs in particular, trip on their own sandal straps these fifty years?
