~ ISRAEL = EVIL— “ZIONIST ISRAEL AT 60 – JOEL KOVEL’S “BURIED” BOOK– by Dr. Mohamed Elmasry – Special to the CIC Friday Magazine”. For more Elmasry goodness, fill your boots, including such propagandistic gold like ‘SECULAR PHILOSOPHY WAS BRAINCHILD OF MUSLIM SCHOLARS‘. Where to begin? Minus a brief hiccup in the 11th and 12th century, there’s no evidence for this claim– aside from which, the Aristotelian model was thought by Muslim religious authorities to directly undercut the authority of the Koran and Muhammed. In any case, even granting that Averroes was amazing, how does Dr. Elmasry explain the anti-intellectualism of modern Islam (the 12th century is 800 years ago), and virtually no world-renowned departments of Aristotelian or secular philosophy to be found at universities in officially Muslim countries? Indeed, “It speaks volumes that a millennium later, such intellectual curiosity about the “Other” and his ways is hard to find in the Muslim Middle East— whose inhabitants, the United Nations reports, have translated fewer books over the last 1,000 years than Spain translates in one year.” [ “The figures for translated books are also discouraging. The Arab world translates about 330 books annually, one fifth of the number that Greece translates. The cumulative total of translated books since the Caliph Maa’moun’s time (the ninth century) is about 100,000, almost the average that Spain translates in one year (Galal, S., 1999).” – Arab Human Development Report 2002, p. 78.. direct link] ….
