Perhaps you need to do a comparison of Western countries to Muslim countries. You will notice a severe lack of freedoms in Islamic countries, you will see genocide, you will see utter, fanatical intolerance. You will also see a much higher rate of unemployment, a much lower rate of literacy, and all sorts of other problems. Yes, there is more poverty in Africa than almost anywhere else, but many of those countries are MUSLIM countries where Muslims are destroying everything that exists and breeding poverty.

Good try. Better luck next time. ;-)
