in response to reader comment: Love-Hate Relationship and Muslim Double Standards

Dear Nuray
1. Most Muslim scientists have graduated from Western universities.There are indeed scientist from Muslim countries but the majority of these people stay in the West and work there.

2. Usually old people's care is becoming a problem in the West so they are sent to Turkey not because of the superiority of their technology as you might know but because of economic reasons. The cost of care is rising in the West. Labour cost is cheaper in other countries. But I know when local medicine doesn't help patients are usually sent to the US or UK and other European countries but not to China.

3. It is nice you have some close relations with the Chinese but I am sure you are on of the few (there are always exceptions to the rule).

4. There is hypocrisy, exggeration and complacency in Muslim behaviour. Religion in the West is a personal matter, not many people bother about Jesus or going to church. Islam should also be a personal choice. We also need to desensitize some Muslims. They are still fanatic and aggressive. They waste a lot of time and energy on trivial things such as the cartoons. No wonder how can science make advances if we live as in the Middle Ages. In addition women are continuously made invisible which might be of interest to you.
