Are you referring to the problems with poor sanitation in Muslim Countries?

I hope you are not trying to change the subject again.

I do not believe that Muslims are inherently dirty at all. The reasons for poor hygiene standards in Muslim countries is mainly related to lack of investment in infrastructure and education.

The corrupt regimes that rule most Muslim majority countries place little importance on health spending and good sanitation. So it is true that Muslims suffer from diseases associated with poor hygiene practices, I believe that it is more a result of their leadership.

Until Muslim countries address the issues of inbreeding and investing it its peoples, not wasting money on corrupt leaders, mosques and military equipment, then Muslims will die young from preventable diseases.

To call what Muslims live in' filth' is a bit rough Slayhy.

The UAE does have a lot of shiny new buildings, but I have been there quite a few times and the liberal use of a bit more personal deodarant would not hurt a fair chunk of the population of the UAE either. I think you are a bit arrogant to look down your nose at other Muslim states.
