Why stop just at medicines?

How about taking back everything that is not written in the Koran -- the final word of Allah after which no more knowledge is possible --and was the gift of hard work and research by the West and the East.

Let us start with the numerical system. Let them go back to use the Arabic letters for numbers (Alberuni) and then take back all the cars, the airplanes, the technology to refine oil, air conditioining, all kind of machines -- any and everything that has anyting to with technology.

Let them keep their oil -- it will stay where it was for unknown millennia.
