    Jews are not promoting brain washing the children in military training
    camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of
    Jews and other non Arabs!

    Jews don't hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics or blow
    themselves up in German restaurants. There is not a single Jew that has
    destroyed a church. There is not a single Jew that protests by killing
    people. Jews don't traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and
    death to all the Infidels.

    Perhaps the world's extremist Muslims should consider investing more in
    standard education and less in blaming Jews for all their problems.
    Extremist Muslims must ask 'what can they do for humankind before they
    demand that humankind respects them.

    Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the
    Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more
    culpability on Israel's part, the following two sentences really say it
    all:

    'If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more
    violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more
    Israel!" Benjamin Netanyahu

    Here is another one that belongs in HI.
    Thinly disguised hate speach.

    The proper question might be, "what have you done for me lately"?
    For much of Western science is based on what Islamics invented, saved, and also brought from the east when Christian civilization was being taught that nothing but the bible was fit to read, burning books, burning Jews, and believing that bathing made you sick. Or worse, meant that you were a Jew!

    A small sample...

    Ibn Sina, philosopher and physician
    Produced a standard medical text in the 10th century that was still in use in the 17th century. Al-Tusi, astronomer
    His mathematical models were essential to the work of Copernicus in proving that Earth travelled around the Sun. Abu Jafar Muhammad, mathematician
    Gave us algebra and algorithms that were central to the development of modern computing. Ibn al-Haytham
    His work on vision and light helped Newton formulate his theories on optics.

    When Western Europe was at its lowest intellectual peak, from the 5th to the 15th centuries, Islamic civilisation was rising rapidly. A thirst for knowledge, including science, was encouraged by the religious leaders of early Islam.
    The works of the ancients, including Aristotle, Socrates, Ptolemy, Galen, Pythagoras and Euclid were collected, safeguarded and translated into Arabic.
    The chemical properties of alkalis and acids were discovered by Islamic scientists.
    The process of distillation was formulated and used to produce petrol from crude oil.
    Islamic scientists contributed to algebra, algorithms, trigonometry, geometry, chemistry, cosmology, astronomy, medicine and optics.
    Islamic scholars developed the concepts of modern hospitals, universities, observatories and civil systems.
    The concept of zero reached medieval Europe through the Arab nations who had probably learned of it from ancient Hindu and Chinese cultures. Prior to this Europe struggled with a system of Roman numerals, in which large numbers would consist of huge strings of letters. Once zero was incorporated, numbers took on the more manageable decimal system that we use today.
