..thanks for bringing up that valid point Mordachai. Actually The number zero reached European civilisation through the Arabs after 800 AD. It is true also the name 'zero' comes from the arabic 'sifr'. I can not deny that there are theories that say it was invented in India, others say it was invented in China. Of course Islamists would like to say Arabs are the origin of the Zero. I appreciate your point and would like to stress the fact that it was Islamized Arabs who introduced the Zero to Europeans , it was them who introduced the greek philosophy also..

Civilization of the west thereof, owes something to Muslims better than hate and hate and hate that became the new trinity of Venalogues...

As for being pro Islam, I answered you earlier in my comment to Lisa..
