To learn anything in school other than the Koran would be blasphemous...

But for the oil, the Saudis would still be killing each other over
waterholes.

Centuries ago Muslim civilizations gave us Samarkand, Damascus, Cordoba,
etc., but the Saudis contributed NOTHING. They are the "hicks" of the
Islamic world. As for the rest of the Islam, take away the oil and you have
societies that the rest of the world would pay about as much attention
to as they would sub-Saharan Africa. Although we owe much to Islam handing
on to the West many of the treasures of Greek thought, the beginnings of
calculus, Aristotelian thought during the period known in the West as the
Dark Ages, it is sad to relate that no great inventions have come for many
hundreds of years from Muslim countries. Then there is a the glaring absence
of democracy in Islamic societies. Admit it: The Arabs contributed little of
major significance to world culture for centuries. And guess what, people?
It's the TRUTH...
