Muslim Contributions to
America and the World

American Thinker, by Glenn Fairman

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 8/5/2014 9:26:21 AM

I have been waiting intently for that catalogue of much vaunted accomplishments which Islam has bequeathed both to America and the world — benefits that have been chirped about ad nauseum by Barack Obama for years. But since this, like all his other promises, has been left dangling, I have decided to compile my own list for you and take the pressure off his wearied brow that best serves America on the links. I assure you that this list is far less than exhaustive: 1. Hummus. I hate hummus. 2. Design modifications to the Twin Towers. 3. Animal husbandry (literally)

FTA: “...10. Cities that celebrate the exotic odor of feces…”

When I see the videos of hundreds of thousands of Muslims in the square, packed shoulder to shoulder, waving their banners and arms, I can’t help but wonder….(to put it delicately)

"where are all the porta-potties!!"

The article at the click-through to American Thinker list No. 3 as "IEDs," rather than "Animal husbandry (literally)" -- which is actually rather more droll.

Arabs gave us the Arabic numeral system which we all use. But they may have been followers of Zoroaster rather the Moohamid. Could you imagine how difficult it would be for Zippy to keep his golf score if he had to use Roman numerals or whatever they use in Kenya?

As for hummus? Gross stuff. BUT if you grind up cecci(italian for chick pea), add some garlic a leetle olive oil, some salt and pepper and maybe some sriririchachacha( I cannot for the life of me figure out that spelling) it makes a gret dip!!!

I remember Obama aactually crediting the Muslims with helping the development of our government in its early years. I would place a small wager that there was not a Muslim in the colonies from 1620 to 1720. Since then, I don´t know but I do know that to the present day they have contributed nothing of any value and what they have contributed is harmful. Most harmful is Barack Obama. I believe him to be a secret Muslim.

All of the contributions of which I am aware were provided by citizens of the Arab part of the world BEFORE Muhammad. It was the great flowering of scholarship during the decline of the Roman Empire which we value. The translations from Greek to Arabic: during this time. The advances in Geometry: during this time. After Muhammad, scholarship was devalued; if it was not in the Koran, it was not needed.
No dispute of this is possible. The documents tell the tale.
It was not scrolls from Muslim scholars that were stolen by the Crusaders, it was whatever was left over from the time before the Prophet.

Aside from ugliness and barbarian cruelty, there is not much there.

Islam is a radical corruption of a Christian heresy invented by an illiterate man in the 7th Century AD. Northern Africa was, prior to Mohammed, a place of spiritual growth and the worship of the real God. Now it remains a place of stagnation and death.

The only good thing about muslims, was when Jefferson got a Quran and translated it to understand them as their pirates were attacking our ships.

He then organized the Marines and sent them to the shores of Tripoli to clear out the nest of vipers.
They have not changed since, and still need to be wiped out like a nest of vipers.

Something big is happening

It is impossible to know exactly what is going on in North Korea, but something big has happened. The third generation Kim dynasty heir, Kim Jong-un, has been missing from public sight for a month, and may be ill, dead, or overthrown. There is much speculation, and contradictory reports are circulating, including the assertion that Pyongyang is sealed off, and no one is being permitted to enter or leave. But one fact is clear and it is dramatic. CNN reports: With Kim Jong Un out of sight for a month, a covey of North Korea´s high officials popped down to South

Megyn Kelly interviewed Jan Psaki on Thursday (video below). Let me cut to the chase and ask that must be pondered: What is wrong with Jan Psaki? I’m serious. She looks like someone is feeding her cues through a tiny earpiece telling her: Keep smiling. Make sure you grin. Smile broadly. And she does this in the face of Kelly discussing grave matters and posing serious questions. (Psaki does this all the time during press briefings, as well.) Does she think she can charm or flirt her way out of interactions? Is she mentally ill? Is she on drugs? Or is this just smug, childish

Senator Elbert Guillory of the Louisiana State Senate is known as a maverick, a black Republican in a state where the Democratic Party is sustained by solid support by the African-American population. But that doesn’t stop him from tyelling the hard truths he believes African-Americans must face.

Perhaps a sixty-second version can be produced for use on television.The polling on the race between Republican Bill Cassidy and Landrieu is fairly tight.

President Obama’s 60 Minutes interview, taped last Friday and aired Sunday, is turning out to be a disaster for him, and may even be a tipping point of sorts. There are six dimensions to the disaster. 1. By blaming the intelligence community for his failure to act on the ISIS threat, he ensured that a series of damaging leaks will be coming, and they are already starting. (snip) 5. National security is a gut-level issue, and Obama is forming an image of someone unable to muster the level of concern or leadership necessary to protect us. The startling images of

ISIS may have called on Muslims the world over to attack Americans (and the “filthy French”), but when two Muslims in Oklahoma act on that call using beheading (or the threat thereof) as their method, The Oklahoman, Oklahoma City’s daily newspaper, calls it a “bizarre coincidence.” Nolan Clay writes: In a bizarre coincidence, a fired Oklahoma City nursing home employee was arrested Friday after a co-worker reported he threatened to cut her head off.

The National Geographic Magazine, a publication heretofore not noted for satirical excellence, has published an article that easily could have appeared in The Onion.

In Colorful World of Birding Has Conspicuous Lack of People of Color, author Martha Hamilton engages in hand-wringing and navel-gazing (yes, they can be done simultaneously, and for all I know, this might be good exercise) over the relative lack of “people of color” (as opposed to the colorless majority) out looking for exotic avian life.

With traditional sexual morality discarded, the last taboo is under attack by the fairness mafia. The UK Telegraph reports: Laws banning incest between brothers and sisters in Germany could be scrapped after a government ethics committee said the they were an unacceptable intrusion into the right to sexual self-determination. “Criminal law is not the appropriate means to preserve a social taboo,” the German Ethics Council said in a statement. “The fundamental right of adult siblings to sexual self-determination is to be weighed more heavily than the abstract idea of protection of the family.”

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
