During that time the Muslim world saved and cherished science and literature from the ancient world of Greece and Rome.
Isn’t that something? For hundreds of years Islam saved the concept of democracy for the rest of the world. While the Western Medieval warlords launched crusades against them.
These crusades are still not forgiven in the Middle East. Especially not after Bush launched a new ”crusade”, the aftermath from which they still suffer in the entire region.
Have you noticed that racists, bigots, and paranoid gun nuts, support a lower standard of living for the poor and the middle class, oppose most social programs and believe the rich deserve more wealth. And that rest of society is getting more than they deserve. The GOP is the only political party on earth that still denies global warming. This Trump Republican party has made this platform their agenda for the American people. This platform is highly supported by the Republican evangelical leadership that wants to take America back in time prior to the 1800s, when science was disregarded, church was mandatory and women new their place. These religious extremists believe the biggest threat facing the planet is other religions and the dreaded liberal. We now have two choices, #1 go foward with a progressive agenda for hope and optimism or #2 crawl back into the cave and hope and pray for religious magic to provide a miracle for a better way of life.
