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

"My dear Amir, you can lie to yourself saying that there is a lot of scientific work, education and universities in muslim countries, that there is scientific research going on in the middle east."

Everything that doesn't agree with your preconceived bigotry is a lie? Are you claiming that there are no universities and no doctors in Muslim countries? If yes, you are more stupid than I even realized. I can cite hundreds of universities, doctors and scientists with PHds. Tell me what is this if not a medical university?
I checked their faculty list in Medical College department

there are like 200 to 300 doctors professors (many with PHds) just in this one university If these 200-300 are not doctors and scientists, what are they?

"The truth is Amir, without oil revenue islamic nations like iran, The emirates, kuwait, syria, saudi arabia and all the other islamic countries are doom to become a second afghanistan."

Or maybe without African slave labor America would be like other dirt poor Christian countries like Rawanda, Zimbabwe, or Latin America?

As for oil, some are trying to diversify their economies like Dubai


"Dubai is distinct from other members of the UAE in that revenues from oil account for only 6% of its gross domestic product. A majority of the emirate's revenues are from the Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZ) [4] and now, increasingly, from tourism."

Oil is only 6% of Dubai's GDP. It's GDP per capita is higher than Israel and many European countries.
