Obama Claims Islam Invented Stuff They Didn't Invent

Sunday, June 7, 2009

First let me say, Islam has indeed done so much for humanity- in science, mathematics, architecture, and so forth. Until the seventh century, that is, when fundamentalists really started taking it over.


Barrack Hussein had this to say:

"As a student of history, I also know civilization debt to Islam. It was Islam – at places like Al-Azhar University – that carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for Europe’s Renaissance and Enlightenment. It was innovation in Muslim communities that developed the order of algebra; our magnetic compass and tools of navigation; our mastery of pens and printing; our understanding of how disease spreads and how it can be healed. Islamic culture has given us majestic arches and soaring spires; timeless poetry and cherished music; elegant calligraphy and places of peaceful contemplation. And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality."

Here's the facts behind these untruths:
  • Compass:
    "The use of a magnetic compass as a direction finder occurred sometime before 1044, but incontestable evidence for the use of the compass as a navigational device did not appear until 1119 in China. The earliest reference to an iron fish-like compass in the Islamic world occurs in a Persian talebook from 1232" wikipedia

  • Pen:
    "Ancient Egyptians developed writing on papyrus scrolls when scribes used thin reed brushes or reed pens. The quill pen was used in Qumran, Judea to write some of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and then introduced into Europe by around 700 AD before the founding of Islam. Ma'ād al-Mu'izz, the Fatimid Caliph of Egypt, was provided a fountain pen 250 years later" wikipedia

  • Diseases: Muslims had some innovative physicians back in the day (I don't think they first discovered how disease spreads or how to heal them), but today Nigeria and Pakistan have blocked vaccinations.

  • Arches: Uh, isn't it common knowledge that Rome started using majestic arches? Actually Mesopotamians invented arches

  • Religious Tolerance and Racial Equality... I won't touch that one.

The great questions is: Why is Obama spending so much time and money promoting Islamic and Arabic nations? Obama supporters called us racists and fearmongers for suggesting that Obama's past living in Arab countries and his decision as a young man to “arabicify” his first and middle names had anything to do with a sympathy for the Arabic lifestyle. Islamo-fascism goes against everything we believe in America: Religious freedom and tolerance, the rights of women and minorities, separation of church and state, outlawing “cruel and unusual punishments, etc.” We are at WAR with Islamo-terrorists because of these ideological differences: we think all people should be free and they think all people should be Islamic and subject to sharia law. There could be nothing more anti-American than putting down our freedoms and encouraging their Islamo-fascist agenda. Why is Obama doing this and why are people not speaking out about it?

Thanks for pointing this out. Most of us would just listen to his speech and accept what he said as fact.
