Here is how typically and historically Islam works in terms of the field of human endeavour. First, Islam does everything it can to prevent advancement and works hard in fact for regression. Tactics include things like burning the library at Alexandria (Caliph Umar I) killing all the people who actually invent new medicines such as Jews and well, infidels and historically, robbing anyone traveling across their lands to get to new things and ideas.
No one seems to remember why in 1492 Columbus was willing to take such enormous risks to find a new sea route to India when Europe was already going back and forth through the middle east. It was far far less dangerous to risk men ships and resources on a harebrained idea that the world could be circumnavigated that way then lose yet another caravan to Muslims in the Arabian Peninsula.
When we did survive the trip back and forth to the Hindu’s and brought back useful things like the zero and a numbering set that made more sense than the Roman lettering one, Muslims took credit for their invention. Yes we call our numbers ‘Arabic Numerals’ because of an accident of geography. They are in fact Hindu as is the Zero.
More recently, Muslims take credit for modern microbiological advancements by claiming that Pfizer and other massive drug companies stole modern medicine from Sura’s in Islamic holy books, specifically the ones that refer to ‘dipping one wing of the fly that lands in your drink back into your drink then the other, because while one wing of the fly may have a disease the other wing will have the cure.’ I’m not making this up. Check the link. It has a video!
Today, the most barbaric force on earth, the one that does as much killing in a day as the KKK did in fifty years, the force that would have killed more than communism if it allowed for the technological growth to develop nuclear weapons (they are stealing that technology now though) and the group that threw out hundreds o thousands of Jews and attempts to eliminate all non Muslim from Muslim controlled lands, now has the utter temerity, the unmitigated gall to take credit for the UN’s refugee policies. A policy that Muslims take advantage of because of Islamic cruelty and western governments actually invented and offer to the Muslim world, the UN now agrees Muslims invented. Prepare yourself with an anti emetic for this:
UN: Islamic law is major influence on refugee law, says study
New York, 23 June (AKI) – The 1,400-year-old Islamic custom of welcoming people fleeing persecution has had more influence on modern international refugee law than any other traditional source, according to a new study sponsored by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
High Commissioner Antonio Guterres said that more than any other historical source, Islamic law and tradition underpin the modern-day legal framework on which UNHCR bases its global activities on behalf of the tens of millions of people forced from their homes around the world.
This includes the right of everyone to seek asylum as well as prohibitions against sending those needing protection back into danger, Guterres said in the foreword to “The Right to Asylum between Islamic Sharia and International Refugee Law: A Comparative Study.”
In the study, Professor Abu Al-Wafa, Dean of the Law Faculty at Cairo University, describes how Islamic law and tradition respects refugees, including non-Muslims; forbids forcing them to change their beliefs; avoids compromising their rights; seeks to reunite families; and guarantees the protection of their lives and property.
“The international community should value this 14-century-old tradition of generosity and hospitality and recognize its contributions to modern law,” wrote Guterres.
He said that “racism, xenophobia and populist fear-mongering manipulate public opinion and confuse refugees with illegal migrants and even terrorists.”
These attitudes have contributed to misperceptions about Islam, and Muslim refugees – who account for the majority – have paid the price, said Guterres.
“Let us be clear: refugees are not terrorists. They are first and foremost the victims of terrorism. This book reminds us of our duty to counter such attitudes.”
The study, published by UNHCR in cooperation with Naif Arab University and the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, is scheduled to be launched on Tuesday at Naif Arab University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
