Every fifth human being is a Muslim. For every single Hindu there are two Muslims For every Buddhist there are two Muslims For every Jew there are 107 Muslims
Yet the 14 million Jews are more powerful than the entire 1.5 billion Muslims. Why? Here are some of the reasons:

Why are they powerful? Why are Muslims powerless? Here’s another reason. We have lost the capacity to produce knowledge.
o In the entire Muslim World (57 Muslim Countries) there are only 500 universities. o In USA alone, 5,758 universities o In India alone, 8,407 universities o Not one university in the entire Islamic World features in the Top 500 Ranking Universities of the Worldo Literacy in the Christian World 90%o Literacy in the Muslim World 40% o 15 Christian majority-countries, literacy rate 100% o Muslim majority - countries , None o 98% in Christian countries completed primary o Only 50% in Muslim countries completed primary. o 40% in Christian countries attended university o In Muslim countries a dismal 2% attended. o Muslim majority countries have 230 scientists per one million Muslims o The USA has 5000 per million o The Christian world 1000 technicians per million. o Entire Arab World only 50 technicians per million. o Muslim World spends on research/development 0.2% of GDP o Christian World spends 5 % of GDP
Conclusion. The Muslim World lacks the capacity to produce knowledge. Another way of testing the degree of knowledge is the degree of diffusing knowledge. o Pakistan 23 daily newspapers per 1000 citizens o Singapore 460 per 1000 citizens. o In UK book titles per million is 2000 o In Egypt book titles per million is only 17
Conclusion. o Muslim World is failing to diffuse knowledge Applying Knowledge is another such test. o Exports of high tech products from Pakistan is 0.9% of its exports. o In Saudi Arabia is 0.2%o Kuwait , Morocco and Algeria 0.3% o Singapore alone is 68%
Conclusion. o Muslim World is failing to apply knowledge. What do you conclude? No need to tell the figures are speaking themselves very loudly we are unable to listen.
Advice: Please educate yourself and your children. always promote education, don’t compromise on it, don’t ignore your children’s slightest misguidance from education (and please, for God’s Sake, don’t use your personal contacts or sources to promote your children in their education; if they fail, let them and make them learn to pass; b/c if they can’t do it now, they can’t ever). We are World’s biggest and strongest nation, all we need is to identify and explore our ownselves. Our victory is with our knowledge, our creativity, our literacy…And nothing else.….
