Unless we're reading a history book on the Dark Ages Ottoman Empire, "Islamic Exceptionalism" is one of the most ridiculous oxymorons ever uttered. While every other culture on Earth has contributed *SOMETHING* to the advancements of science, medicine, and culture within the past century, the Islamic would not only has contributed NOTHING, they've gone out of their way to block any advancement. Literally the only time you will ever see a Muslim name in any scientific journal is when evolutionists are talking about the discovery of the "missing link".

Where did the Western world "discover" the Greek classics, most notably Aristotle, along with medicinal principles and algebra, among other things, after the "Dark Ages" ended? It couldn't be Muslim libraries in Africa and the Middle East? Because that would mean Islam contributed to the advancement of the world...

So their "contribution" was to butcher people and steal their works?

Damn, you really are an Islamic terrorist, aren't you?

The "enlightened" who claim a firm grip on the steering wheel of Western civilization see the future through a lens in which man becomes ever more perfectible as outdated religious creeds fade away. And thus the irony. For all the contempt these cosmopolitans show for religion, there is one faith beyond public rebuke. Call it Islamic exceptionalism.

Public Enemy No. 1 right now is the man who made a ridiculously shoddy YouTube video titled "The Innocence of Muslims." This man and his so-called "film" have been blamed with a very broad brush for every riot and protest across the Mideast.
