    I think you've got it the wrong way round.
    In high school we had to listen to stupid leftist teachers tell us Islam is peaceful, I actually believed them until I came to TSR and saw for myself.

    That's not really how it works, it's usually the other way round.

    The link is a load of rubbish that doesn't provide any sources itself.

    I'm not a Muslim. I'm just a tolerant person. Its not all about you, either. The UK should treat all religions equally, but Christianity still gets pretty much all the holidays. Easter is a time for Christians to celebrate their God (the same God that Muslims celebrate), and to wish others, even non-Christians, well. Promoting this message, that Islamic culture is not all about terrorism, is not selfish.

    And you British do; you constantly talk about the british empire as though it was the greatest force for good that ever existed...
    You're tolerant until somebody disagrees with you.

    Whilst medieval Islam contributed a lot to the society (though not some items in your list); not being an islamophobic but rather pointing out that it has a conflicts with almost every other religion and atheists. Also I don't think it's Islam as a religion is the reason behind that , it's just that orthodox Muslims reject an open minded idea to be tolerant of other beliefs and have the objective to convert others.

    Modern Islam these days tend to be a source of conflict both due to an ignorant ideology like Donald Trumps but also on the other end of spectrum through Isis or how Saudi Arabia imprisons women for driving .

    P.S I have lived in different countries with different religion dominations

    The wikipedia list doesn't display any of the inventions the other two 'sources' claim Muslims invented.

    I Googled guitar and the Babylonians and Hittites had them. The idea of a chew stick dates back to Egypt, but actual toothbrushes are Chinese, either way, not Islamic. I can't even be bothered to google the rest because I know for certain that with the exception of lenses, none of it will be Islamic.


    Aside from a bunch of Persians during the so called Islamic Golden Age, not all of whom were in fact Muslim, Islam is unique in its complete lack of intellectual history. You can easily find ground breaking Hindu, Christian and Jewish intellectuals, Islam has nothing, even the texts are stolen from earlier religions.

    Whilst Muslims have provided a great deal of advancement to society of the world (especially during the Islamic golden age, serious look it up nothing any were else held up anything close to the scientific and mathematic advancement of that era) that being said

    1) it does not change the situation in the current world, it doesn't change the issues faced with integration of Muslims in the west (I assume that is one of the things you are getting at, given that most people who bring it up do so to make such points)

    2) the past is the past. Science in the Islamic world is very much dead. By every statistic you look at the Islamic world has fallen far behind. Harking about the past and restoring the past is what leads to fundamentalism. It is what nearly every extremist want in the world. Because let not forget whilst thenislamic golden age was a golden age for science, it wasn't a golden age for equality, tolerance or freedom when compared to the world now.

    Why "on this day"? Are you purposely trying to piss off Christians seeing as today is probably the most important day of their calendar?

    Without Turing it would have never happened.

    Anyway, you completely missed the point of my post.

    No, but today ISN'T all about Christians. AFAIK, Jesus would have approved, since he talked of TOLERANCE and LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR
