Why are the Jews so powerful ? By: Dr Farrukh Saleem. (The writer is a Pakistani, an Islamabad-based freelance columnist.) January 12, 2009

Posted by ibnmahadi in Uncategorized.

There are only 14 million Jews in the world; seven million in the Americas , five million in Asia, two million in Europe and 100,000 in Africa . For every single Jew in the world there are 100 Muslims. Yet, Jews are more than a hundred times more powerful than all the Muslims put together. Ever wondered why ?

Jesus of Nazareth was Jewish. Albert Einstein, the most influential scientist of all time and TIME magazine’s ‘Person of the Century’ was a Jew; Sigmund Freud — id, ego, and super-ego, the father of psychoanalysis was a Jew; So were Karl Marx, Paul Samuelson and Milton Friedman.

Here are a few other Jews whose intellectual output has enriched the whole humanity:

  • Benjamin Rubin gave humanity the vaccinating needle.
  • Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine.
  • Alert Sab in developed the improved live polio vaccine.
  • Gertrude Elion gave us a leukaemia fighting drug.
  • Baruch Blumberg developed the vaccination for Hepatitis B.
  • Paul Ehrlich discovered a treatment for syphilis.
  • Elie Metchnikoff won a Nobel Prize in infectious diseases.
  • Bernard Katz won a Nobel Prize in neuromuscular transmission.
  • Andrew Schally won a Nobel in endocrinology (disorders of the endocrine system; diabetes, hyperthyroidism. Aaron Beck founded Cognitive Therapy (psychotherapy to treat mental disorders, depression and phobias).
  • Gregory Pincus developed the first oral contraceptive pill.
  • George Wald won a Nobel for furthering our understanding of the human eye.
  • StanleyCohen won a Nobel in embryology (study of embryos and their development) .
  • Willem Kolff came up with the kidney dialysis machine.

Over the past 105 years, 14 million Jews have won 15-dozen Nobel Prizes while only three Nobel Prizes have been won by 1.4 billion Muslims (other than Peace Prizes).

Stanley Mezor invented the first micro-processing chip. Leo Szilard developed the first nuclear chain reactor. Peter Schultz, optical fibre cable; Charles Adler, traffic lights; Benno Strauss, Stainless steel; Isador Kisee, sound movies; Emile Berliner, telephone microphone and Charles Ginsburg, videotape recorder.

Famous financiers in the business world who belong to Jewish faith include Ralph Lauren (Polo), Levis Strauss (Levi’s Jeans), Howard Schultz (Starbuck’s) , Sergey Brin (Google), Michael Dell (Dell Computers), Larry Ellison (Oracle), Donna Karan (DKNY), Irv Robbins (Baskin & Robbins) and Bill Rosenberg (Dunkin Donuts).

Richard Levin, President of Yale University, is a Jew. So are Henry Kissinger (American secretary of state), Alan Greenspan (fed chairman under Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush), Joseph Lieberman, Madeleine Albright (American secretary of state), Maxim Litvinov (USSR foreign Minister), David Marshal (Singapore’s first chief minister), Isaac Isaacs (governor-general of Australia), Benjamin Disraeli (British statesman and author), Yevgeny Primakov (Russian PM), Jorge Sampaio (president of Portugal), Herb Gray (Canadian deputy PM), Pierre Mendes (French PM), Michael Howard (British home secretary), Bruno Kreisky (chancellor of Austria) and Robert Rubin (former American secretary of treasury).

In the media, famous Jews include Wolf Blitzer (CNN), Barbara Walters (ABC News), Eugene Meyer (Washington Post), Henry Grunwald (editor-in-chief Time), Katherine Graham (publisher of The Washington Post), Joseph Lelyyeld (Executive editor, The New York Times), and Max Frankel (New York Times).

Can you name the most beneficent philanthropist in the history of the world ?  The name is George Soros, a Jew, who has so far donated a colossal $4 billion most of which has gone as aid to scientists and universities around the world. Second to George Soros is Walter Annenberg, another Jew, who has built a hundred libraries by donating an estimated $2 billion.

At the Olympics, Mark Spitz set a record of sorts by winning seven gold medals. Lenny Krayzelburg is a three- time Olympic gold medallist. Spitz, Krayzelburg and Boris Becker are all Jewish.

Did you know that Harrison Ford, George Burns, Tony Curtis, Charles Bronson, Sandra Bullock, Billy Crystal, Woody Allen, Paul Newman, Peter Sellers, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben Kingsley, Kirk Douglas, William Shatner, Jerry Lewis and Peter Falk are all Jewish?

As a matter of fact, Hollywood itself was founded by a Jew. Among directors and producers, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Oliver Stone, Aaron Spelling (Beverly Hills 90210), Neil Simon (The Odd Couple), Andrew Vaina (Rambo 1/2/3), Michael Man (Starsky and Hutch), Milos Forman (One flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest), Douglas Fairbanks (The thief of Baghdad) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) are all Jewish.

To be certain, Washington is the capital that matters and in Washington the lobby that matters is The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC. Washington knows that if PM Ehud Olmert were to discover that the earth is flat, AIPAC will make the 109th Congress pass a resolution congratulating Olmert on his discovery.

William James Sidis, with an IQ of 250-300, is the brightest human who ever existed. Guess what faith did he belong to ?

So, why are Jews so powerful ?

Answer: Education.

Why are Muslims so powerless ?

There are an estimated 1,476,233,470 Muslims on the face of the planet: one billion in Asia, 400 million in Africa,44 million in Europe and six million in the Americas . Every fifth human being is a Muslim; for every single Hindu there are two Muslims, for every Buddhist there are two Muslims and for every Jew there are one hundred Muslims. Ever wondered why Muslims are so powerless ?

Here is why: There are 57 member-countries of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), and all of them put together have around 500 universities; one university for every three million Muslims. The United States has 5,758 universities and India has 8,407. In 2004, Shanghai Jiao Tong University compiled an ‘Academic Ranking of World Universities’ , and intriguingly, not one university from Muslim-majority states was in the top-500.

As per data collected by the UNDP, literacy in the Christian world stands at nearly 90 per cent and 15 Christian- majority states have a literacy rate of 100 per cent. A Muslim-majority state, as a sharp contrast, has an average literacy rate of around 40 per cent and there is no Muslim-majority state with a literacy rate of 100 per cent. Some 98 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Christian world had completed primary school, while less than 50 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Muslim world did the same.

Around 40 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Christian world attended university while no more than two per cent of the ‘literate s’ in the Muslim world did the same.

Muslim-majority countries have 230 scientists per one million Muslims. The US has 4,000 scientists per million and Japan has 5,000 per million. In the entire Arab world, the total number of full-time researchers is 35,000 and there are only 50 technicians per one million Arabs (in the Christian world there are up to 1,000 technicians per one million). Furthermore, the Muslim world spends 0.2 per cent of its GDP on research and development, while the Christian world spends around five per cent of its GDP.

Conclusion: The Muslim world lacks the capacity to produce knowledge.

Daily newspapers per 1,000 people and number of book titles per million are two indicators of whether knowledge is being diffused in a society. In Pakistan , there are 23 daily newspapers per 1,000 Pakistanis while the same ratio in Singapore is 360. In the UK , the number of book titles per million stands at 2,000 while the same in Egypt is 20.

Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to diffuse knowledge.

Exports of high technology products as a percentage of total exports are an important indicator of knowledge application. Pakistan ‘s exports of high technology products as a percentage of total exports stands at one per cent. The same for Saudi Arabia is 0.3 per cent; Kuwait , Morocco , and Algeria are all at 0.3 per cent while Singapore is at 58 per cent.

Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to apply knowledge.

Why are Muslims powerless?  Because we aren’t producing knowledge.
Why are Muslims powerless?  Because we aren’t diffusing knowledge.
Why are Muslims powerless?  Because we aren’t applying knowledge

And, the future belongs to knowledge-based societies.

Interestingly, the combined annual GDP of 57 OIC-countries is under $2 trillion. America , just by herself, produces goods and services worth $12 trillion; China $8 trillion, Japan $3.8 trillion and Germany $2.4 trillion (purchasing power parity basis).

Oil rich Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait and Qatar collectively produce goods and services (mostly oil) worth $500 billion; Spain alone produces goods and services worth over $1 trillion, Catholic Poland $489 billion and Buddhist Thailand $545 billion. (Muslim GDP as a percentage of world GDP is fast declining).

So, why are Muslims so powerless ?

Answer: Lack of Education ! All we do is shout to Allah whole day and blame everyone else for our multiple failures..!

By: Dr Farrukh Saleem


1. ibnmahadi - January 12, 2009

I believe many of us probably knew this already. They are the leading group in every aspect of faculties. You name it, from engineering to medicine to paleonthology, from journalism to broadcasting to media, from politics to business to economics, all of these fields are Semitically filled. Which business or economics or marketing text books that we’ve been reading that are not Semitically authored? In short, from Arts to Science, the Jew race, once enslaved for many thousands of years, are now populating these areas of knowledge significantly since the Nazi or Post-Holocause/ Holocaust era.

No doubt that the Descendants of Jacob son of Isaac son of Abraham (anak cucu keturunan Nabi Ya’akub a.s./Bani Israel) were granted by Allah with the highest level of mind capability. They were granted by Allah with brightness, brilliancy and intelligence more than any other races that ever existed. Allah lifted a significant number of individuals from the race of Jews as His Messengers so that they could continuously invited their people to the path of Allah. It was through His Messengers (from Jacob to Jesus) that Allah passed these attributes to the Jews.. Evenmore, half of the Messengers we are obliged to have faith in were along this bloodline. Because the Jews were granted with continuous guidance in the form of Messengers, that’s why it is not a surprise that the Jews have been so successful in many ways compared to other races.

In my eyes, no matter how successful they are, I am not impressed. No matter how many awards (like Noble Prize, Pullitzer Prize or Graham and Dodd scroll, etc.) the Jews have bagged in including the less significant and inferior Oscar awards, it does not matter at all. Because these awards are human-made. Or should I say, Semitically- made. They created these awards to recognized themselves. To make them superior and be acknowledged in the eyes of the world. It is never intended to recognize any Muslim works or anything that are related to Islam. And the best all, they smartly commercialized these awards that they created.

According to what Dr Farrukh Saleem wrote below, there are 100 Muslims for every single Jew. So that makes the number of Muslims in the world 1.4 billion or probably more since the article was written. With this number, I don’t see why we cannot start having our own global Islamic awards in recognition of Muslim works. Awards that created by Muslims, recognized by Muslims, and to acknowledge Muslims. For instance, we can have World Ma ‘al Hijrah award to recognized Muslim scholars around the world for their contribution including the pursue of peace or we could have World Maulid-ur-rasul award as the prize for the creation or invention that contributes to the development of Muslim world or we could establish any other award under the Islam banner. With this number of Muslim population, we are suppose to be the leading, not lagging, group in every aspect of life and human faculties. We absolutely don’t need the awards or recognition by these capitalist Semitics. They are very good at inventing things that somehow be amazed and astonished by the people of the world. And they are also very good at creating thoeries. But all they care is nothing but money and fame..

We may be less intelligence than they are. But we hold somethings that they don’t have and they never will possess. We have Al-Quran and As-Sunnah. As long as we embrace to these Two, and have faith in Allah, we will never go astray and we will succeed in every aspect of our works, in life and the hereafter.

The Jews are always confident in themselves. We Muslims, on the other hand, should have absolute confidence in Allah. The Jews may be powerful now and have been succesful in the world. It is certain that it was because their stubbornness that they were sent by Allah as many Prophets as there were, one after another. It is certain that depsite being granted with huge number of Prophets and intelligence by birth, they keep remain unfaithful not only to their Prophets but also to Allah. It is certain that, unlike we Muslims, the Jews’ continuous stubbornness cannot be tamed by just pulling their ears. However certain it is, it is never certain that they will be powerful and successful forever in every aspects. As long as the Jews keep to their stubbornness and remain astray from Allah’s path, they will never have enough power close enough to stop Allah’s judgement and they will never be close enough to success than the Muslims at the end of the day and in the hereafter. In the world, the Jews may outsmart everybody. But it is Allah, the Administer of the universe, is the Most Knowledgeable.

(In the article, Dr F. Saleem cleverly and successfully indentify why Muslims are powerless which is because the Lack of Education with further saying that “All we do is shout to Allah whole day and blame everyone else for our multiple failures..!”. However, he himself failed to include the solution to this. The solution to Muslims on how to overcome this. This is much more important aspects in the development of the Muslims towards becoming, not powerful, but strong ummah. None is absolutely powerful other than the Ruler of the Universe ‘Azza wa jal).

Denial, denial denial………….The governments need to build more universities, buy more books, supplies and STOP issuing Bans on concepts you may not agree with! STOP controlling knowledge and learn something new, different, open your eyes to the wonders that Allah has given us!

And awards? Yes, I agree, who cares….except when you are the person who did all the work to get the thing done, would you not like to feel good about it?

david - January 6, 2011

What a lot of ignorant rubbish! ..and let’s say that there was a Muslim prize dedicated just for achievements by Muslims…what achievements of the 20th or 21st century would you nominate that did not receive a Nobel prize already?

RHSchumann - October 7, 2012

The article is less about awards than it is about achievements. And achievements by Jews have benefitted everybody in the world, to include 1.4 billion Muslims.

Cesar Maderazo - May 1, 2013

This is the mentality that will forever keep Muslims lagging behind in all aspects of human endeavor. Muslims ought to exercise introspection and stop blaming others for their woes.

When referring to the Jews, you said “We may be less intelligent than they are”. Why, this is almost a flagrant admission of an inferiority complex. Why don’t the Muslim world unleash the creative genius that exists among your people, which is just as much as those existing among any other race.

You were once on top of the world in science, math and other human pursuits. Did you ever ask why you have fallen farther behind? Open your mind and savor the goodness that is in the hearts of so many people of all races, instead of mouthing nothing but platitudes.

Think about it, the Muslim world could be great again benefitting the whole human race, not just Muslims but including, yes, the Jews.

Nice site really!

4. Hasan - February 9, 2009

If we google search Ghazali and Ibn Rushd (Averroes), we get a remarkable insight on the contributions of scholars of medieval Islam.

These contributions included in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, medicine and psychology.

That was the AGE OF REASON.

Alas, Averroes was the last philosopher the Muslims produced. The tradition of free enquiry was taken over by the Europeans and continues to this day.

I do not agree with the rhetoric that Allah and the holy Quran we have that the Jews don’t have. We can have Allah and the holy Quran yet strive to produce scientists, engineers, physician etc. We can adopt modernity without sacrificing the basic tenets of our faith. Modernity does not mean drinking and dancing. It means embracing science and technology.

Why can’t we agree to adopt scientifically calculated lunar calendar? This is just one example.
Why do we want to create obstacles in the pursuit of science and knowledge?

Islam does not prohibit the creation of wealth which we have a right to use. We are not supposed to misuse that wealth.

5. nawaz - March 9, 2009

Muslims r underestimated

surj1936 - April 22, 2012

” Muslims r underestimated ” Oh. ! ya. How come? I think non muslims don’t underestimate you muslims ,you are capable of doing any thing evil than good.

surj1936 - July 17, 2012

nawaz, ” muslims are underestimated ” In what ways?

6. zainab amjad - March 17, 2009

that’s the real cause of backworldness of muslims!

surj1936 - April 10, 2013

zainab amjad ” that’s the real cause of backwardness of muslims !” I agree with you. But see other muslims here disagree with this article. Any one who can’t look at the fault with himself or herself that individual will never progress. Same thing applies to Societies.

7. daddy - April 24, 2009

i mentioned this in a jooist site (levitt an americunt posted the paki’s comments), and i mention this here briefly

the smelly illiterate paki rodent’s stupidity is for all to see.

The paki couldn’t even pass kindergarten even if his life depended on it; he claims all OIC countries’ aggregate GDP based on Purchasing Power Parity is under $2 trillion, yet if you add up Iran, Indonesia and Turkey’s GDP alone, that figure is exceeded easily and if you keep on adding the other larger ones, OIC GDP easily exceeds 7 trillion $!

That article is chock full of inaccuracies and wrong facts, typically a paki illiterate curry munching smelly hendu can be expected to write such rubbish. No offense.

8. m.d - September 15, 2009

the nobel prize was actually created by alfred nobel, a LUTHERAN, and in case you didn’t know they weren’t too big a fan of jews.

9. a Muslim who cares - October 9, 2009

To Mr. Daddy: you do not have to be so hateful and use deragatory language. Your way of thinking and hatred has no place and I am sure you are not one. While I agree with you that Mr. Saleem data mining could use some work the point is well taken. There is no question that the reason Muslims are behind is because of lack of education, point blank!
There is not a single muslim country (with or without natural resources) that excels in this area. I think everyone knows that knowledge is power and we Muslims lack that in comparison to Jews (by the way I have nothing against Jews or the Jewish religion and at least for the sake of this disucssion). The question I have is: WHY?? Why do Muslim governments know that knowledge is power and that education is very important yet nobody seems to do anything about it from Morocco to Pakistan??? why? do we want to intentionally keep people dumb? that is my only answer?! If it was up to me, I would allocate the highest budget in every Muslim country to education, GOOD education that is! and put forth a program that rewards the best teachers and accomplishing students. Suffice to say that you must have jobs ready for all these graduating students which Muslim countries don’t have… chicken and egg thing but I would rather have a million jobless highly educated people than 100 million illiterate people doing work that does not utilize brain power. The difference between us and other animals lower in the food chain is the BRAIN. There are lots and lots and lots of “empty” brains running around in the Muslim world untapped, and unused. what a shame.
Finally, I will say that people are people around the world. Jews are NOT naturally smarter than us. It is that they have endured so much through the year and figured out that in order to control the world (and their destiny) is the acquire power (an no, there are no weekly meetings between Jews around the world to discuss the “Plan”). To acquire power you need knowledge (we are more powerful than donkey because we have more power, brain power, simple!). I would even go to the extent that you could probably use the same analogy to compare us uneducated muslims to our educated Jews or other human constituent (like the Chinese for instance). To close, Muslim should stop competing and hating Jews. For once, can we stop and think for once: is there something we can learn from these people? is there? I think SO!

hey dont confuse faith with knowledge

Ganesh K Panadam - August 4, 2012

How stupid can you possibly be…. worshiping the creator is the only form of success??? If the creator was so smart, why are there children born handicap, why are peoiple starving…
Anyway, continue to live in your hole and when you die, you can expect your creator to open his arm and say, `Alhamdulilah, my stupid son has come home!’

impartial_observer - January 23, 2013

True Muslim: Thank you: You just made it very clear why Muslim societies still live in the Bronze Age. Your explanation of why Jews influence the World illustrates exactly what the author Mr Saleem wrote so eloquently about your collectivve lack of appreciation for education. I found this article while searching on google why jews are so much more successful as a group. I mean success in quality fo life, longetivity, health and peace for their children; success in contributing to the well-bieng of all society. I googled the topic because I am a Jew, and even though I am an atheistic Jew who does not identify with any religious faith, I was curious why people with my heritage are so visible in the world despite our numbers being tiny. I honestly can’t say for sure, but I would agree with Mr. Saleem that it is a love for knowledge and eduction that is passed down through generations. Maybe that’s why so many Jews are secular; they know that faith is a social construct and not a metaphyiscal one.

I in no way intend to impugne your faith or your reliance in religion to explain your actions and Worldview: All I can say is : The proof is in the pudding (or in the fallafel).

11. TRUE MUSLIM - February 1, 2010

On the same note, I agree that Muslims are just not interested in attaning knowledge. Present day Muslims are engulfed in greed, lust and other evils; blocking their mentality to think.

The lessen for modern day Muslims: Stay away from acts that will disobey your Creator; and you will be successful!!!

12. Vladimir - February 4, 2010

Sorry my jerky English, it is not my native language.

The reason of the lack of education among Muslim countries is correct, but it is secondary, it is a result of another social aspect of the Muslim countries.

In Christian countries the religion and social life are separated, it opens the way to free discussions which produce the better and faster way to evolve. During the inquisition time the science was on very poor level in Christian countries also. Only separation of social life and religion boosted the science and education. And in the Muslim countries where restrictions for the religious life are not very strict, the science is on the higher level. Compare, for example, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

The Jews are, in my opinion, are not specific from mention above point. But do not forget that for many centuries there had been restrictions in Europe on professions for Jews. The education was not included in these restrictions. These centuries brought a habit to Jews to give their children as much education as they could. Thus now we just see the results of these centuries.

I don’t know if the author of this article understands it. Very probable that he is afraid to hit the base of the social life in his own country.

beatlejew - April 22, 2013

All through history, Jews were banned from European and most other universities. Even If they weren’t completely banned, only small numbers were elegible to enroll.

13. Christian Jo - March 3, 2010

Good site, It’s an eye opener to the people in the world that God put His people a head, for God in the book of Deuteronomy (The Bible) that His people (The Christian) the followers of Christ is not a tail but a head.

14. maria - March 5, 2010

it is not a matter of muslims being powerless—it is more because the Creator of the heavens and earth has CHOSEN the jewish tribe to be the tribe where the messiah would come forth—God has communicated himself in many different ways: nature, dreams, revelations—and part of the choice of the jews goes back to the garden of eden when the Creator wanted fellowship with the created—however this relationship was broken when man chose to disobey the one and only test of choice–by man’s freewill he chose to eat the one and only forbidden fruit—but the Creator did not lose hope–he promised a seed that will one day crush the serpent;s head—for this seed to come forth a tribe has to be chosen—this chosen tribe is the jews and for that reason alone this makes them a noteworthy group of people.-

sylvio caruzo - October 6, 2010

if the god that you speak about had favored a people over others than he is not worthy of worship!! how can a god so merciful and good give so much to so few?? a people that wronged him so much don’t deserve all these attribute .therefore successful jews deserve what they have because they work hard,study hard use their brain and have no pity for nothing except profit.

Sunil - July 17, 2012

God in the Bible didn’t show any favour to Jew, but the Abraham kept faith before God, that is why He blesses His descendant and has chosen to bring Messiah to mankind as a redeemer from all of our sin

15. Sentiments - March 6, 2010

Not all muslim are bad,
but in our nation state, most of them are barbaric people.
taking hostage,
killing people,
and even moslems who are considered educated for earning doctorate degrees loves violence,
in fact they are the ones that influence their less educated co-moslems to become agreesive.
in our place, THEY WANT POWER, FAME, and DOMINION..
and they will do anything to get that…. even that they dont have the capacity to run a nation state. hmmm thick skulls….

17. James - March 12, 2010

i hate to say this but sorry, i just didnt like the sound of jews as more powerful than the muslims. for me it is very discriminating, to the point of being a racism. i am a Christian, but i just dont believe in undermining other religions. Jesus Christ told us to love the gentiles, but not discriminate them or undermine them. This title just so feels like a pharsiee, i am sorry, i am just so dissapointed with this topic…

Miriam - April 19, 2013

Do you think it’s discriminatory to call anyone who highly value education in all fields more powerful then someone who are not encouraged to learn and even prohibited most secular knowledge?

23. Samir S. Halabi - November 17, 2010

The reason why Jews have strived to acquire knowledge through learning is that they have compassion not only for their own co-religionists but for the good of mankind. They have enriched mankind through the ages. They are not filled with hatred against mankind who through the ages have been so agressive towards them. many arab aswell as islamic countries have banned so many books ie. history and othe’s which have been written by Jews, you in the arab and islamuic world have distorted history, claiming the ‘Shoah’ never even happened. You deny that you committed any wron doings against the jews of the arab world whom fled for their lives in the late 1940s & 50s from persecution, torment, torture and murder. You have ethnically cleansed the arab world of 1,000,000 Jews in the late 1940s. Today over 50% of the total jewish population of israel is comprised of these middle eastern Jews. It’s now time to move on you should have settled the palestinian arab problem long ago, giving them citizenship in the 22 arab states which you have. You are not now going to turn the clock back, you can never make inroads for success in all fields of learning until you realize that the Jews of Israel are not going to leave. It’s not that there were never any jews there in the fist place, some jews never even left there since the destruction of the 2nd temple 2,000 years ago. You have your Mecca 7 we have our jerusalem, when you finally wake up and understand this point you will never progress in any direction.

24. Allen Roy - December 3, 2010

Go back to the 1500 – 1600s and see what Muslims contributed to the world. The quantity and quality is staggering – Arabic numerals, the number zero, architecture, music, design, books, the Alhambra palace, coffee, etc. What happened that froze the Arabic culture in the 1500s?

This was around the time of Martin Luther challenging the power of the Catholic Church. Muslims also began challenging the power of their religious leaders. Martin Luther won in his challenge of religious power. Muslim intellectuals lost in their challenge of their religious power. Mullahs declared a Fatah that anyone who challenged them should be put to death. The intellectuals folded and Arab culture stayed in the 15th century.

Muslims should not blame the West for their sorry state. They need to look no further than their corrupt religious leaders who hijacked their beautiful culture in order to stay in power. That was the problem 500 years ago. That is the problem today.

Comments from “a muslim who cares” he wrote: Why do Muslim governments know that knowledge is power and that education is very important yet nobody seems to do anything about it from Morocco to Pakistan??? why? do we want to intentionally keep people dumb?

Response: You just answered your own question friend, most of the muslim elite is nothing but a bunch of power hungering dictators that want mass control by being your puppeteers. As this article stated, approx 1 out of 5 people in the world today is a muslim, this is a growing population. Stupid people are easier to control than smart people thats a fact, I would wager that if the muslims were educated to their full capacity like other races we would see a big change in the number of sucide bombers out there as well as the number of children your people give birth to. Another change I see mass education bringing would muslims moving away from being so fanatical about the book, this would be a major threat to your leaders. With out mind control through the book you would become civil and have no use for those idiots you call leaders whose only purpose in life is to keep you stupid and opressed while they live in extreme luxury. Time to wake up!

global awards for muslims huh…how about awarding suicide bombers..posthumously;-)
I think muslims are dumb becoz of their irrational belief system imbibed on them from childhood.
Those who blindly follow scriptures are called exemplary muslims n those who question are labelled ‘kaffirs’!! Hence muslims become braindead.

I’m not sure of exactly how accurate this article is, but I think the main point is what truly is important. Education is the most important thing in creating success in people and nations. The less focus and investment there is on education, the weaker the people and nation become. Jews have focused on education so they can be depended on by others. Jewish history is ripe with persecution and when you are depended on you are much less likely to be persecuted.

The mind of a Muslim is so brainwashed from the moment of birth, that to try to reason with him is a total waste of time. What the Jews have cannot be denied. In Judaism, it is OK to argue with the rabbis about any issue you wish. Muslims do not argue with their religious teachers, they just follow. This is good for Islam, but not good for the individual. Islam is still in the fourteenth century. That is fine with me, but that is why I cannot abide Muslims coming to the US, where they would like to change our ways of thinking, acting and believing. May they and their Allah stay home where sharia can live, breathe and be well. They deserve sharia and the quuaran.

30. daddy - March 22, 2011

Oh dear the number of blindingly childish arguments put forth is shocking! Not just that, many a jew, many a hindu, many a christian use false nicks to deceive Muslims.

1. FYI Muslims are dumb because apart from a handful of countries, why? Most of the 57 OIC members are secular and follow kafir laws, that’s why.

2. Of those countries that follow Shariah like Saudi Arabia, the leaders are aligned with kafirs and installed by the British, supported by the Americans and they do everything in their power to keep Muslims apart and to serve their western masters’ cause.

3. Iran is the only sizable Muslim country that is independent of Western meddling in own affairs and follows Islamic laws. However its Shia doctrine estranges most of the rest of the Muslims of the world.

4. Consequently it is Iran which has shown 11 times the average world growth in scientific publications according to canadian (western) company science-metrix even though western journals put many obstacles in front of Iranian scientists and do not publish their research because Westerners are the true obstacle in front of nonwestern Muslims.

5. This should nullify all those deniers claims that westeners should not be blamed. When Islamic independent (but Shia – a distinct minority) Iran pursue its own path, it is these westerners who provide the most trouble. It is these westernes that place sanctions on Iran, it is thise westerners who dont allow Iranian scientists thinkers intelligent ppl to adequately express themselves.

6. Despite this, Iran sent Kavoshgar-4 to space with bio-capsule intended to carry a monkey to space, paving the way for Human space “flight”. How many countries on earth can do this? Another five countries at most?

7. Iran makes own supercomputer, national OS, one of the world leaders in nanotechnology, biotechnology, launched own SLV carrying turtles, worms and rats to space, own satellites to space, makes own automobiles under own brands, designs, builds own aircraft both civilian and military and improving upon those designs at the same time.

8. Whoever said Muslims are lagging behind in science because of no secularism are ignorant or liars, possibly both. Indonesia and Bangladesh, two of the three most populous OIC members are the most pathetic amongst the pathetic OIC members in scientific research. Both Indonesia and Bangladesh are secular, accounting for the 1st and 3rd most populous OIC members. Even if you look at western sources as SCIMAGOJR.com both Bangladesh and Indonesia combined do not publish half as many papers annually as Malaysia. This is opposed to Iran’s case which is the highest publishing country in the OIC if not for illegal illegitimate obstructions and sanctions imposed by kafir westerners.

9. Iran already has more scientists and researchers than many European and western countries. Also among OIC members only a few small countries like Jordan have a higher number of researchers per million people than Iran, mostly because while Jordan is one of the worst secular and pathetically pro-western states in OIC, Jordan has a high number of palestinian residents who make up these researchers and other successful ppl in other aspects of life.

10. Saudi Arabia established the King Faisal prize, however, its rulers being established by the British and supported by the Americans means that Saudi Arabia “does their bidding”. Consequently, Saudi Arabia mostly recognizes kafir westerners in scientific performance for their “research” not any Muslims even though Iranian scientists deserve credit. How many countries under sanctions embargo and constant threat and occupation of two of its neighbours could send SLV and satellites with it to space, and then send turtles, worms, rats to space like Iran?

11. In conclusion, it is Islamic leaning Iran that supports and outdoes the entire world in scientific output growth despite western sanctions, which means if there were no western obstruction, Iran alone could have possibly lifted whole of OIC up which failed secular countries like Indonesia or Bangladesh drag down to the bottom of the pit with their unearthly backward ideology of kafir secularism.

31. daddy - March 22, 2011

I hope interested Muslim readers won’t mind a few grammatical or spelling errors in my post. Muslims should try to ensure Kafir influence is got rid of in their daily lives and ensure that true, logical, scientific analysis is carried out that the author “Farrukh Saleem” could not. He thought OIC members have a GDP lower than $2 trillion in PPP terms when Arab countries alone have a higher GDP, not to mention Arab countries are stifled under secular pro-western backward, divisive dictatorial authoritarian repressive western-supported regimes that want to keep arabs weak, divided and backward.

If under these circumstances Arabs have a GDP higher than $2 trillion PPP, can you imagine where Arabs can be if/when they are united, under one Islamic rule, following Islamic Shariah and gets rid of all malicious western interventionist secular backward oppressive mindless illogical criminal immoral malignant backward ideologies.

32. garret - April 11, 2011

When I lived in Dearborn, MI., I was appalled that Arab youth seem to take on a “Ghetto” mentality instead of taking a playbook from the Jews….reference for education, family, etc. Perhaps a significant difference that I wonder about is that the Jews exclude outsiders and even encourage exploitation of the Goyim. Whereas the Muslims emphasis hospitality and forbid exploitation financially or otherwise of non-Muslims?

33. kenny - April 17, 2011

for all of you out there wondering why, if knowledge is so clearly important and powerful, do islamic governments not allocate so much of their wealthy budgets? Duh! Look at the self-interest driven leaders and hateful dictators which run these failing, terrorist economies. They are only in it for themselves–they understand very well that the more educated their peoples are, the less power they will ultimately wield. A separate issue is that, a progress in education leads to ultimately more secular and westernized values. Islamic tradition is, at its core, repugnant to cognitive liberty. You think educated women will choose to wear burqas in 105 degree weather? No, of course not. There is all the incentive in the world for muslim leaders to hold back the progress of their people. It is the steady yet growing faction of true, hopeful Muslims that we see today taking to the streets in pursuit of a better life. With God’s help, they will overthrow the selfish self-centered regimes which rule their lives, and be able to flourish alongside the rest of humanity. Amen. selah.

froggy38802 - October 19, 2011

Kenny, you are so correct. I was married to a Moroccan man who is to this day one of my best friends. He admits that the Muslim and Arab nations are so divided that they only agree to disagree with each other. He does not believe that they will ever be able to be democratic or anything other than back 1000 years.

Is “Dearborn, MI.,” in a Muslim majority country which strictly follows Islamic Shariah and works for the sake of the Ummah?

If not, what is the pertinence of whatever young people may be doing in a kafir country? Arabs are not necessarily Muslims, and most Muslims (by name) are not Arabs although Arabs are the single most powerful, influential, noticable (and perhaps most divided as well) group amongst all groups with Muslim majorities.

35. daddy is a moron - May 18, 2011

Daddy, you and Muslims just like you are the reason why the muslim world is so primitive and “retarded” for lack of a better word. As long as you and your people keep believing in and worshipping this mythical creator of yours who obviously doesn’t exist and even if he did, it doesn’t look like he’s doing much of a job, then you will remain to be the uncivilized, barbaric, ridiculously stupid looking people you currently are.

I would like to add that i have absolutely no problem with you people remaining so primitive and retarded but can you please do it from the comfort of your own country and get the fuck out of ours.

I am Jewish but married to a Catholic woman. When in Spain I saw evidence that the golden era of that country came from the Moors who settled the lower 1/3rd of Spain till they were kicked out by Christians. That happend to the Jews too during the inquisition.Since the great mathematicians and artists for many years were Moslum till the Crusaders nearly destroyed Arabic culture, shall we say that Moslums are not very powerful partly because Christians in many ways so weakened their culture and education that they were knocked back to the dark ages and have never recovered? But, using a similar argument, it is a pure miracle that Jews did not let that happen to them. Arabic people are citizens of Israel and can largely be educated like Jews can . Is it possible if the Jews were in the place that historical Christians were, that The Arabic peoples would be equally or more powerful than Jews are now? .

What you are talking about bombings?99% of all Muslims in the last 60 years where killd by muslims!THat was written in the Turkish NEwspaper Hurriyet.

Also take a look to Europe and Asia.IT was totally bombed out.BUt specially in wartimes they have the most good ideas and after the war they worked hard and have build the most modern states in the world.10 years after the worldwar Germany was the 3rd biggest export nation.Also Japan and Korea with nearly no oil,coal,gold,metal.This nations had nearly nothing-but cold winters.And what do thwe muslims after wars?They fight brotherwars!And if not they fight against their woman,black dogs or pigs.Very clever!

Algebra was invented by the Muslim mathematician Al-Khwarizmi in the book he wrote in 820. Algebra is the Arabic word (aljabr) for “equation”, and the word “algorithm” comes from the author’s name, Al-Khwarizmi. He is rightly known as “the father of Algebra”.

I find this conversation to be very enlighting yet, disturbing. I really Don’t appreciate “Daddy’s” comments which are at two different points rude and inappropriate. I understand that there is a huge set back with the middle-eastern governments having dictators, not democracy. If the middle-east was to be free I am certain that very intellegant people would be coming out of the woodworks. Unfortunately many of these people must stay in hiding due to the extremely dangerous nature of there work, and the government being so controlling. I only feel sorry for the people who are persecuted in those countries because of their beliefs. People should be able to dress, act, and pray to whoever and however they see fit not be forces apon them. Many people “Daddy” in Iran especially have been executed for their person religious views or sexual preferences… A perfect example is the Baha and Homosexuals. This is wrong and I only hope that someday the people will be able to rid themself of a government that treats their people like this. I also agree ibnmahadi that knowledge is power and as long as you keep the people uneducated they will continue to follow their leaders. Myself on the other hand am a christian married to a muslim and I am sure in GOD or Allah’s eyes we will not be cast out of heaven for being married and having our beautiful son.

Whoever found this article interesting should really watch a one our documentary movie (can be found on netflix) called ” the Jewish people – a story of survival”. The Jewish brain has always had to cope with difficult and perplexing situations throughout its history, and has done it over an over again. The Jewish people sticked to their religion even when facing death. Anam an Eva were Jewish, this is the oldest religion ever existed, and God supports it. Arab people are not just underestimated by others, but also by themselves. I’m proud to be a Jew.

@non muslim kafir
your daddy may indeed be a moron. That is only reflective of your genetics.

You are the kind of idiot that keeps dragging the world into an abyss of abysmal ignorance, putrid hatred and ignominious barbarity.

1. It is kafir western bastard countries like USA, UK, Australia that invaded Iraq in 2003 illegally, immorally, mindlessly, callously, against all norms of decency, sanity, civilized behaviour to murder, loot, destroy, cause undescribeable pain, horror, suffering, humiliation, destitution upon millions upon millions of innocent Iraqis.

2. No Muslim country did that to any kafir country on earth, even though Sudan could have razed south sudan to ground, or Indonesia could have obliterated East Timor. Bangladesh could have annexed parts of Myanmar adjacent to it, or Malaysia and Indonesia could have shelled Singapore into oblivion.

3. It is natural, it is expected, it is reasonable that you kafir western imbeciles get out of nonwestern Muslim countries on your own, or that Muslims and the rest of the world send you and your countries, cities and villages built upon the wealth of nonwestern civilizations to its natural state, which is a state of anarchy that prevailed in Europe for thousands of years before generous Muslims taught the ignorant kafir Europeans some science, Mathematics, logic for the homosexual, nude, kafir and incestuous Europeans to get to know civilization.

Why are Muslims so powerless?

Because Islam is THE worst poison of the mind – it is THE biggest road block to knowledge, reason and progress in the world.

Furthermore, Islam is a combination between total mind control (a la Jim Jones) and fascist ideology (like Nazism), a religion that demands total ‘submission’ as the word Islam itself implies. Turn off your brain and don’t think for yourself – Allah will do it for you.

Well, looking at how you Muslims keep falling further behind every year I’d say Allah either hates you or he doesn’t exist at all. Either way, you’re fucked the way I see it!

In any case, the Muslim world would be wise to finally wake up and get with the program. Instead of cursing, slandering and demonizing Jews, you should take a page from their book and become more like them.

Daddy oh Daddy, you are the poster person for what is wrong with organized religion (as opposed to faith). You have allowed yourself to be duped to the point where you simply repeat and dish out the poison fed to you which does nothing but to spread division, hate and violence. Your ignorance seems to include even knowledge of the once glorious Muslim golden age when, the long gone leaders of the time, encouraged free thinking, sciences, literature, medicine,etc. In those days Jews and Christians were welcome to live and contribute to the greater good. By contrast, the then Christian kingdoms were suppressive and knowledge resistant, similar to your views and of those you represent. They, the enlightened ones, understood that Allah gave man a brain and a free will and the greatest sin was not to use these great gifts not afforded to any other leaving creature.

So Daddy, perhaps you may want to challenge yourself, use the gifts given to you as a member of the human race and try to understand how a proud nation was so successful then and how it declined by allowing religion and it’s radical agents to suppress knowledge, education and promote hatred of everything non-Muslim. I pray you find the right path.

58. Rus Watson - September 12, 2012

Islamic leaders use their religion as a means of control over “their” people. An educated population is not so easily controlled. Christian leaders were like this in Medieval times and the people had to rise up in bloody wars to remove the powers of these Christian leaders. Let’s hope Islamic leaders, including their military, see the futility of their ways and humbly give up their earthly powers.

are so poor to support education.

ALL RELIGIONS ARE BAD!!! Why can’t we just be homo sapiens, humanists, and live by Kant’s Categorical Imperative: “Act only according to that maxim whereby you can, at the same time, will that it should become a universal law.”? Result: No bloodshed, murder, mayhem, capitalist supremacy, abject poverty, afterlife, etc. Just concentrate on and make the best of our short life.
Globalization has transplanted jobs to places of cheap labor so that the super rich can make ever more money and become ever more powerful with the goal to create a world government that will enslave the ‘herd’ ever more. Think about the ph.D. who drives a taxi to survive. Education alone doesn’t help. People must be afforded to earn an honest living.
I’m afraid that one day the enslaved masses will rise up and do to the super rich what the Hutus did to the Tutsis. But maybe the fanatic Jews will attack Iran first and as a result will be wiped off the map by likewise fanatic Iranian Mullahs. Or Israel will use atomic weapons and pollute Europe or maybe drag other European countries into the conflict, thus starting another world war.

71. jlmsika - November 25, 2012

Jews are not any more intelligent than others, like Arabs.
Jews and Arabs are cousins, from the same semitic race and they have the exact same human potential at birth.
The problem seems to me to that Jews and Muslims have a very different (opposite?) set of values.
Judaism promotes:
– individual Freedom of each individual (Jews cannot be forced to behave one way or another, to conform, etc..they remain FREE and will respect each other’s freedom even when they disagree, and they disagree and argue a lot, etc…Most of the times, Jews will even remain friendly and respectful with Jews who convert freely to other creeds…)
– and in the same time individual Responsability in repairing (healing, fixing for the better) the world, in hebrew “tikum olam” as a struggle for justice in THIS world (not in the afterworld…).
So, Jews are Free and in the same time they are feeling Responsible.They have to act for justice, they have to find the ways, to INNOVATE to allievate human suffering (medical science, agronomy, judicial progress, social justice, etc…etc…). They are raised from childhood with these two values: Freedom and Responsability.
On the other hand, Muslims seem to be raised with two opposite values which are:
– SUBMISSION of the individual to the established situation which is perceived as the will of G-d (Allah).
Muslims for instance cannot disagree and if they convert to another religion they are to be executed. They are not Free to express themselves and are prisonners of their social and religious body.
– CONFORMITY to the established order. Muslims have to submitt to feudalism or slavery, etc… because it is the will of G-d.
If they rebell, they are considered as Heretics and can be executed. This is terror. Any new idea, new procedure will be considered as dangerously close to heresy an Muslims will exercise self censorship and refrain from innovating.
Submission and Conformity are handicaping the Muslim world, preventing its development.
Instead of considering the Jews as their ennemies, Muslims should consider them as their elder brothers (Judaism is a very ancient) who can provide help and teaching for Freedom and Responsability.
If Islam could integrate a good dose of individual Freedom and individual Responsability, it could flourish very bright.
To begin with, apostasy should not be considered as a crime anymore, and punished, etc…and women should be treated as equal (The great tunisian President Habib Bourguiba was right on that, he established equality and freedom for the women and he also advocated Recognition and Peace with Israel, etc…etc..).
Tony Blair said many times that “the Arabs should not consider Israel as an an ennemy but as a model”.
Some good values to integrate, and then Jews and Arabs living as good neighbors…for a peaceful and prosperous Middle-East for everybody.

The reason the Jews are successful isn’t merely education; that is only a part of it. it is also family, ethnocentricity and giving back in charity and everything that is taught in Torah. It is the content of the teaching, in other words which affect all of life. Torah is God’s revelation to moses and a blueprint for successful life. That is why Jews are successful. It goes back to the Covenant with Abraham. Abraham was a wealthy and successful man, as were all the patriarchs, and their successors, the Jews. xtians are better educated than Muslims, but still Jews are more successful than xtians. It is because of Torah. This is G-d’s revelation, His blueprint for living, to the Jews. Most xtians miss it and have done for 2000 years. Muslims know nothing about it and that is why they are failures. Their prophet and their god is false. Muslim failure is proof of that and the Torah itself shows prophecy on all of this failure in the end times when they come against Israel. Then they will see that the God of Israel is the only God and they and the xtians will put away their idols.

This article is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.Except the muslim world wakes up,they will always remain stagnant.

78. Eglantine - February 23, 2013

The Jews are successful for one reason: the Torah. This is G-d’s direct teaching to Moses. No other prophet was spoken to directly by G-d and given the 613 Commandments. How can Mohammed claim to abrogate Moses’ teaching when he only talked with an angel? The Torah is G-d’s blueprint for living. Everything else is false. The Torah promises a blessing and a curse – to bless those who love G-d with wealth and success and to curse those who disobey. He chose the Jews to convey that message to the world. He did not choose the Jews because they were better than others. In fact He chose them because they were small and because of Abraham’s faith. Also He chose them to serve the world, not to Lord over it, and that is what Jews have always done. When the Jews made sacrifices in the Temple they were doing so on behalf of the whole world. That is what Muslims and Christians will never understand until the end times, which is soon. That is why they have contributed so much. So it is not just about knowledge, but about the truth of the knowledge. As for Islam, Winston Churchill hit the nail on the head. He wrote this in his 1899 book ‘The River War’ after observing Muslims during Kitchener’s campaign in Sudan: “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science – the science against which it had vainly struggled – the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient” Rome.

79. Sharbat ali Imamzadedust - March 4, 2013

“We may be less intelligence than they(jooooos) are. But we hold somethings that they don’t have and they never will possess. We have Al-Quran and As-Sunnah”.

Boy o boy! in His wisdom, Allah saw fit to take away our intelligence giving it all to Joooos elevating them into superior beings, making us Muslims an inferior race of brainless zombies.
Brilliant deductions ibnmahdi.A true Muslim scholar you are. May I suggest we all kick off the inaugural inter-Islamic prize, suggested by ibnmahdi, be bestowed upon ibnmahdi him/herself?. Why ibnmahdi deserve to be the first recipient of the award?. He just proved Muslims are idiots, oops! i meant to say he just proved Muslims are less than intelligent.American kuffar have a saying “proof is in the pudding” Alhmdullah rab il alemeen.

The apostate .Ali Sina must be ROFLHAO after reading your less than intelligent (you are a Muslim are you not?) POV brother/sister ibnmahdi.
You just proved Ali’s assertions that Muslims are a bunch of brainless zombies duped into worshiping a seventh century Bedouin pedophile and pervert.
Perhaps his apostasy’s is related to a desire to distance himself from brainless Muslim ummah. Ali says if a Muslim, first step towards recouping your intelligence is to leave Islam and its Qur’an and Sunnah.

May be 7th century Jooos of Arabia were on to something whey they flipped the bird to Muhammad and his message.
May be this is why Joooos are so intelligent did you ever think of that? They saw and recognized something in Muhammad that only intelligent people could see and could recognize: An scoundrel.

May be that’s why Allah told Muhammad to not waste time with intelligent people of Arabia and instead preach his message to the idiots of Arabia, convert them, call them Muslims, scare the shit out of them by threat of Hellfire, then keep them in ignorance by giving them Qu’an and Sunnah to hold dear.

80. Umar Zahid - March 17, 2013

In this world we have two kinds of Knowledge …
1-Knowledge of Matter ( Knowledge of Science)
2-Knowledge of Soul (Al-Quran & Sunnah)

The knowledge of Science emerges from Knowledge of Quran because Soul is origin for matter to exist. We the Muslims have knowledge of Quran but are backing in knowledge of matter. It is a weakness goes to we muslims. That the origin was owned by them but they have not worked and research in it. For this time we are cutting its punishment but this punishment will not be forever.

Its no doubt Jews have knowledge of science more than we muslims. But they do’t believe in Quran. Which is the origin so instead of so much knowledge of science a day will come when muslims will defeat them. Because they are not believing in the origin. This is clearly mentioned in Quran and stated by Holy Prophet Muhammad(P.B.U.H). This is not from now it originally started in BANI ISRAEL from the time when Allah decided to send for them MAN WA SALWA from heaven. After some time they refuse to eat. And they ask Musa ( Ghalaihesalam) that they will earn their eating by their own hands. From that day they believe in themselves and are always against Allah. They work in science, they develop science to ease their lives and because of their hardships God is giving them success. And so is coming from the very start of Jewes history. God has grated them now doubt with extreme talent and wisdom but they have used and are using it always against Allah.

So as Allah is the most Powerful and almighty he will let on day muslims to defeat them. This is also exact justice because Jews are aware of Knowledge of matter but not from the origin and muslims are aware of the origin. So they are having the Help of Allah.

How and when will it starts?

Jews believe that one day their god will come to this world that they call MASEHEDAJJAL and in his leadership they will conquer the whole world. Its no doubt DAJJAL will appear in the world with great knowledge and power Human eyes have ever seen. At one time this single human being who also belong to BANI ISRAEL will have knowledge of everything. He will be granted by so much knowledge by All Mighty Allah that he will be able to give life to a human who has dead. Most of the Humanity will be impressed from him as now we see they are impressed from Jews. Jews are also holding every field of the world because they believe that Dajjal and they will help him. They will help him from the Money and knowledge of science and Technology that they have. This Dajjal will get great influence in the world. Such that some muslims with very strong IDEOLOGY will become him followers. But all the power of Dajjal will be FAKE infact just for impressing. Those who start follow him will have every facility in their lives but still they will be not happy. Fake in the sense that it will not be forever.

On the other hands first that Dajjal appearance Allah will send IMAM MEHDI(GHALAIHESALAM) to this world. He will guide the muslims to the right path of life. Will create Unity in the muslims. When Dajjal will appear Imam Mehdi will announce JEHAD Against this evil. Thus a Number of battles will happen among the followers of Imam Mehdi and the followers of Dajjal. But muslims will be very weak. Dajjal will have such influence in this world that he will not let the followers of Imam Mehdi to get even a single time meal. They will have nothing for eating. Their bodies will survive this time with AZKAREILAHI. Means they will say only SubhanAllah, Alhamdulellah,Allahoakbar, La illah Illallah and they will remain alive without food. Dajjal would have very quick easy access to any part of the world. He will be able to bring prosperity(only appearing) to any area of the world and will be able to limit the resources of any area he want to the limit that those people will not be able to get meal for a time. But Dajjal will have not access to only two places of the World. MAKKAH AND MADINA. He will move to saudi arabia and will stand on the a hill near MAKKAH and because of anger will beat the earth with his feet. This beat will bring earth Quick in MAKKAH AND MADINA. at this time those muslims who fear from this earth Quick and come out of their homes will also get influence from Dajjal.

The downfall of Dajjal will start from one big debate. Where DAJJAL would have collected many Muslims to show his Power. One Muslim will stand in front of him and will ask him if you are really God them kill me and then make me alive. Dajjal will kill him and then will give live to him. When he will become alive. He will announce in front of all the peoples who are present there


After this accident Dajjal downfall will start. He will be in a battle atlast with the Imam Mehdi Lashkar in the area near ISRAEL When Essa Ghalaihesalam will come to this world again. He will come to world on Baitul Muqadas. He will go to the Muslims side to help them. At this time 1/3 part of Muslims population would have become followers of Dajjal. 1/3 part would have died in the Battles against Dajjal and only 1/3 would have remained. This 1/3 part will be in very Hard time of their lives. Because Dajjal will be Powerful ( of matter). Hazrat Essa Ghalaihesalam will go there and will ask Muslim what is the problem.

Muslim will say we are very tired of this man(Dajjal). He look to as some Megician or Jin. He has strange powers. Hazrat Essa Ghalaihesalam will move start moving toward Dajjal. And Dajjal will start melting like iron til he will be dead.

This time of Dajjal will be very short but will be very hard for Muslims. Because it will be an exam of exams for Muslims. And those who slept will be unsuccessful those who will remain stronger and will be with Imam Mehdi til end will be successful. After the death of Dajjal Muslims will start killing JEWS. Will kill them in a large Number. Jews will hide against trees and stones but these stones and trees will speak to muslims here is JEW BEHID ME KILL HIM. Til the last Jew will die on the earth. When Jews will come to an end. The world will start real progress. Hazrat Essa will start ruling the whole world with Justice and Islamic Rules. And the earth will lets its all Barkats. Such that the size of granes and fruits will become big than before. and the mineral underearth will all come on the surface of the earth. And Hazrat Essa Ghalaihesalam will rule the world for 40 years.

This is what will happen and will surely happen as we are guided by our HOLY PROPHET MUHAMMAD (P.B.U.H). And we have believe stronger on this than what the sight of our eyes reflect.

Umar Zahid

jlmsika - March 17, 2013

So, according to you Umar Zahid, the muslims are waiting for the time when they will be able to kill all the jews and rule the whole world?
With such a criminal (and stupid) project, the muslims will remain impotent and helpless and for the time being they just kill each other and remain in misery and fear.
The muslims would have a lot to learn from the jews and their only hope of progress is to stop the criminal nonsense of hating the jews and Israel and to learn how to be good neighbors and respect minorities (jews, christians, bahaïs, etc..). Until then, they will remain frustated and helpless, enslaving their women and killing each other.
The sick totalitarian desire to “rule the world” is (fortunately) self-destructive and leads to helplessness.
Therefore, in the end, freedom and diversity (not islamic rule) will surely win!

The Bible thew Word of God is the origin, The Jews or Israel is chosen people of God because they worship true God the creator of all things, with God nothing can be exists. Without Christ everything are useless.. Christ is the only hope of all nations! Yeshua ha Mashiach!

Eglantine - April 10, 2013

Well said.

Eglantine - April 10, 2013

If the quran is the origin of scientific knowledge, then how come Muslims have none? Don’t you know G-d gave you a mind, to use, to reason with, otherwise how are you to judge what is true revelation and who is a true prophet? This clearly means there must be no compulsion in religion. Learn from Abraham, who persuaded and presented the truth of G-d but did not compel. G-d does not want slaves, but sons. Jews excel in science because the Torah is about spiritual truth AND bringing that spiritual truth into being in the world. A Jew brings down the holy into the mundane world and raises the mundane world up to the holy. A Jew masters science because our scientific knowledge has its basis in the Torah. Mohammed claimed to be ‘a prophet after Moses’ but he did not teach what Moses taught or what Abraham taught. Scripture prophesies that the children of Ishmael will come against the children of Israel out of envy and hatred and G-d will defeat them. Psalm 83, of King David:
O God, do not remain silent;
do not turn a deaf ear,
do not stand aloof, O God.
2 See how your enemies growl,
how your foes rear their heads.
3 With cunning they conspire against your people;
they plot against those you cherish.
4 “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation,
so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.”

5 With one mind they plot together;
they form an alliance against you—
6 the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
of Moab and the Hagrites,
7 Byblos, Ammon and Amalek,
Philistia, with the people of Tyre.
8 Even Assyria has joined them
to reinforce Lot’s descendants.

Mohammed did not make any prophecies which have come true. Many of those he did make were taken loosely from Hebrew Scripture or from the christian writings. The prophecies of Hebrew Scripture, on the other hand, are extremely accurate and exact. They prophecy the scattering of the Jews in middle eastern and european countries, for examples ‘where you will worship a g-d you have NOT KNOWN – gods of wood (christianity, the cross) and of stone (Islam). But ‘I will regather’ Israel in the Holy Land and then the nations will come against Israel. This is all happening now. The survival of Israel since 1948 has been nothing short of a miracle. that is because G-d is defending Israel against her enemies and will continue to do so. It doesn’t end good for the Muslims. But in the end, when the battle is over, ‘the Torah will go out from Jerusalem’ and the whole world will recognise and worship the G-d of Israel.

Powerful Blog about reasons why some groups or reliigions aren’t doing that well.I believe the same goes for Africans. I believe if we could work together and unite against a common enemy in this case which is “Failure” we will see light at the end of the tunnel. We all are aware of our blunders, but no one is willing to take the podium and say, “i am guilty of failing my people”, there are individuals capable of leading their faaiths into new Era’s. Times could change, but this change should be a Joint adventure.

83. The good boy - March 26, 2013

The answer for the Article is Because The Jews are close to their God. They totally believe in Him. Whatever they do in their daily lives, even having meal and going out of the House, they include Prayers and Blessings to HaShem. The believe in One, thats the reason they are at the top.

84. Eric Winkelman - April 20, 2013

You must know that the G-d of Abram and Abraham is the same
G-d ?

Muslims and Jews need to further suppress centuries of the tribalistic characteristics of hate and revenge.

If that could happen, there is no telling what our two great peoples could do together in a co-operative spirit. However, Islam must fully recognize Judaism as a viable and appropriate religion. We [ co-descendants of Abraham] already do except Islam, except for the hateful violent and destructive acts of the Jihadists.

85. Monis - May 19, 2013

We are not loosser until we accept it and we cant blame allah muslims can produce knowledge more then others and we will try because we can

86. Non-Jew - May 23, 2013

OK, I am 100% no-Jewish in origin.
Born in average, but not poor conditions to learn.
Made my way toward some level of achievement way above average of my neighbours and fellows in the school, university, early jobs.
Free of any religion.
Led by conscious set of beliefs from own practice.
Met lot of successful Jewish and non-Jewish.
Success makes people more similar than different (well not always).
Am I Jewish?
I start to consider that if I declare myself Jewish, that with all my core qualities, whole success may likely be somehow improved.
Being Jewish is already like quality brand in many places, for example in Russia (country full under control of Jewish elite) or Holywood.
I like the fact that I am not Jewish and can easy manipulate majority of Jewish in business, where they are exemplarly well established. Jewish can be conquered, controlled and manipulated individually, although it is more difficult than with most of other people.
Successful business is all about kind of intelligent manipulation. Not fraud, but positive taking of advantages. Fair? Who knows, it is about result. This is Jewish main trick, they are masters of intelligent manipulations.
Keys are skills, mind power, education and human wit, Jews are not super-human, if one is practical it is possible to have advantage over them, but it is demanding.
One of good bluffs for non-Jew is to play Jewish card (again it requires a bit of efforts), not to oppose.
Jewish don’t seriously care about history (except academician) or religion, even when they talk about them. I know lot of rich Jewish and all of them posses the same capability (in different degree) to trick the mind of the opponent. Not in my case and I would recommend Muslims to follow suggestion of blog writer and put focus to education and self-education in the first line.
I am European, Christian, member of small nation and see level of degradation in education system in Europe, as well. I have no problems with majority of Muslims and Arabs.

87. tone - May 31, 2013

terrible article, except for the ending in the first half…. “jews” are “smarter” because they have access to a decent education. This a faulty argumentation, because the reason they are smarter, is because they are in fact Americans, europeans and asians, with access to a more developed educational system than excists in most muslim nations.
and a good argument is; not smarter, just better lobbyists
However, all people looking for guidence in a God, are by default, unsmart.
