Egypt: Women will lose rights as Sunday's vote on a new constitition heralds a new Dark Age and the gradual imposition of Shari'ah law

Just like other Arab countries in the past two years, Egypt is heading for an Islamist-dominated, jihadist government which will erode women's rights and gradually impose Shari'ah law:

This is what most of the rebels in Syria want as well - a more extreme Islamist government to replace the moderate leadership of President Assad.

I saw some frightening statistics the other day.
If you exclude the oil - the entire Arab world, from Morocco to Pakistan, produces less economically than the Finnish company Nokia, which has fewer than 8,000 employees.
It is claimed that there have been only 10,000 books ever translated into Arabic.

And just as aside - re oil.

Oil CANNOT be allowed to drop below 63 USD a barrel.
Why not ?
Because below that level Saudi and the Gulf states could not continue to provide food, education, health and everything else for their people.
Since those states produce nothing else the porice of oil is carefully controlled by OPEC, which under other circumstances would be an illegal cartel.

Not sure PeterMac if the Pakistanis would accept themselves as 'Arabs', despite sharing their Islamic beliefs with their Arabic friends.

I think most people, including myself, would pay tribute to Arabic/Muslim achievements in, say, architecture, art and design, but apart from that, and the succerssful Muslim invasions of Africa, western Asia and southern Europe (and exploiting oil), the Arabs do seem to have been gross under-achievers.

This Wikipedia entry is of interest, listing as it does the miniscule number of Nobel prize-winners from the Muslim world:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Muslim_Nobel_Laureates

Even that short list includes five Peace Prize winners, and I'm not sure that Yasser Arafat, for one, deserves to be on that list.

But when you consider that there are 1.2 billion or so Muslims in the world, only two have won scientific/medical Nobel prizes, a Pakistani and an Egyptian-born American. By contrast, the tiny Jewish community of around 12 million (one-hundredth of the numbers) have won dozens of Nobel scientific/medical Nobel prizes.

If you visit Muslim forums, they agonise over the reasons for this. The more honest of them admit that it's probably something to do with their religion
