Islamists have no western philosophy

Wow, great article. They can live without us? The entire Western culture was a civil development from a tradition of Philosophy which seems the Middle East ignored. We defined Justice, and Freedom, and fundamentals of science with Plato & Aristotle way before the time of Mohammad...

Today, all our modern science and anatomy and biology and botany and zoology is all based upon LATIN which language makes up our modern cultures languages and unites it deeply. Arabic, seems to have its own language track, and unless they they want to re-research all the labels we have put to our science identifications they are the ones that can't advance without us. They are mostly able to only destroy things, not build civilizations. This cannot be allowed.
