I've been intrigued by a comparison that I have read in different articles and blogs' commentaries, regarding the Jews harvesting a big chunk of Nobel Prize awards, in spite of them being a very small percentage of the entire world population, when actually only a handful of Arabs scientists and intellectuals, had the honor to be awarded of the Nobel Prize.
In fact, between 1901 and 2007, more than 750 Nobel Prizes were handed out, of all these awards at least 162 have been given to Jews, and only 6 Muslims had the pleasure to be awarded of the Nobel Prize! That's a very meager contribution from the Arab societies, rendered to humanity's development and evolution.
Of course, a controversial question arises from most of us when reading those reports on: why a small population of about 13.5 Jews scattered all over the world with only a 5.3 million Jews actually living in Israel, managed to accomplished so many awards, when they are compared with the much bigger Arab populations of 1.4 billion Muslims, a proportion of 20% of World's entire population, that's a very big disparity. Don't you think so?
Anyway, the culprit of this lack of great minds in the Arab's populations, resides merely on a faulty social system based on a endemic disease, and such disease is named "Islam".
Populations under Islam have contributed almost nothing to mankind, for the mere fact that this (so called) religion has hampered any movement of ideas and efforts for a better educational system inside the Arab's societies.
Islam only creates societies under despotisms, and in return those despotic regimes choke economic and scientific progress, and in the same time giving more suffering to their own people from deplorable levels of illiteracy and miseducation.
Islam doesn't allow to unleash the potentialities from a big slice of humanity, because of its inheritance of obfuscating the hearts and minds of women and men under its shadow. Islam is an unprogressive force which impacts in many negatives ways by creating only unfavorable conditions, when it's tampering inside many lives. Therefore, Islam is in reality a dark force which is limiting Muslims to free their own ability in the fields of creativeness. Consequently, a few talented people can escape from Islam's malignant influence.
These disproportions between Arabs and Jews can't be be reduced?
Of course, they can.
In favor of the Arabs, I want to reference to a story which I learned a few days ago, while I was watching a TV- PBS/NOVA program.
This program was telling about the story of a young lady, who was capable to achieve her own dreams, despite her own background. Luckily for her, her family moved to the United Stated when she was only two years old.
By night she's a rocker. By day, she's a Harvard geneticist tracking the evolution of the human genome.

Born December 25, 1975 in Iran.
We came to the United States from Iran just before the Iranian Revolution in 1978, when I was two. There was a lot of political turmoil and we had to leave quickly. My parents had to start over, learn a new language, and just get going. There's a sense of resilience that my mom and dad gave me that I love. It's this idea that no matter what happens to you, you keep going. As long as I have a heartbeat, I'm fine.
Haven't her family decided to take this hard step, I don't believe she could have become what she is today. Thanks to a free society, she could elevated her spirit and mind for better prospectives, rather than letting her own creativeness been left to rotten by an archaic sets of religion's misinterpretations, created for the sake of humanity's conduct.
If her family had not taken that step of leaving from Iran, in all the possibilities I see her today, been dressed in a more traditional Islamic fashion while she is attending a more diminished role inside her family, and not a possible Nobel Prize. For sure, if the story above would had not happened, the world today would have one less bright mind, but one more devoted and submitted Muslim woman. One more miss, for the Arabs' proud!?!
I'm not asking for Islam to be totally abolished, I guess, that's something which can't be done! But, at least to reform itself for a more progressive future if Islam really wish any good, for the portion of humanity under its grip.
