The article by Farrukh Saleem was sent by a friend through email.I have read it before but never crossed my mind to post it on my blog at that time.
It was written in 2009 by a Muslim, a Pakistani freelance columnist Dr Farrukh Saleem propounding the weaknesses of Muslims and Muslim countries and why they are lagging behind and why the Jews, the most minute minority in world's population, yet the most successful race in the world.
They excelled in almost all the sciences.From Einstein to Friedman and thousands more they have conquered the sciences and gave mankind the benefits of their knowledge and the comfort of their discoveries.
Back in 2007 when I first started blogging I wrote an article not exactly showering accolades on the Jews as Farrukh did but why Muslims and Muslim nations lagged behind the West which brought Farrukh and myself inadvertently to the same crossroad........education or lack of it!
The Middle Eastern Arab countries are living examples how poor, divided, disorganised, illiterate they are and ruled by despotic regimes that disenfranchised civil liberty and robbed the state coffers for themselves, their families and cronies.The tsunamic "Arab Spring" swept through the region demolishing one regime after another.Gaddafi's Libya buckled two days ago.Syria would be next.
Absolute monarchy has no place in this modern world.Saudi Arabia would be a matter of time.
Would the Arab countries see better regimes.Again, the revolution was so disorganised there were no clear leaders to take over leaderships.Eygpt is still in the quagmire with the military, the remnants of Mubarak's close circle in power and democracy seems a bridge too far.
Education for the people is a non-issue and placed on the back burner.Almost all Jews, rich and poor, are educated.
For every Jew there are 100 Muslims yet we can't beat them...... our weapon so primitive, all it can do is to kill and maim fellow Muslims.
MUSLIM NATIONS:ARE THEY READY TO TAKE ON THE WEST?

WHY ARE THE JEWS SO POWERFUL.
