Europaklip: Muhammed og europæisk kultur

DR-P1 sender i den nærmeste fremtid en udsendelse i rækken Europaklip en udsendelse om Muhammed som en af Europas grundlæggere. Ja ak – så skal vi også have det ind med modermælken fra den vinkel. Sjovt som det minder mig om visse totalitære regimers propaganda i 30’erne? Nå lad gå. Lad os se på hvad islam og Muhammed har gjort for Europas kultur i fortiden:

Caliph Umar I
The reign of terror by caliph Umar still horrifies the present day Iranians. They dress themselves up in festive clothing on the death anniversary of this caliph, even to this day. Caliph Umar who was also one of the many father-in-laws of Mohammed, attained leadership of Islam two years after Mohammed’s death. His reign of terror rocked Iran, Irag, Egypt and Syria. His most dastardly deed was the destruction of the great library in Alexandria. His order to Amir Amron ibn al-Ass (rightly named) is preserved as follows:

“As for the books you mentioned here is my reply. If their content is in accordance with the book of Allah, we may do without them, for in that case the book of Allah more than sufficies. If on the other hand, they contain matter not in accordance with the book of Allah, there can be no need to preserve them. Proceed then and destroy them.”

Such brilliance and such logic can only be found in the followers of all merciful Allah.

The 700,000 scrolls, some of them works a thousand or more years old, many on Mathematics, science and philosophy were destroyed. Ibn al-Kifti wrote that, “it took 6 months to burn all that mass of material.”

Where Alexandria lost only one of its precious libraries, India lost millions of books on Mathematics, Astronomy, Philosophy and other Sciences of the Vedic and Buddhist periods. For example, the famous Sanskrit college of Vishaldev in the capital of Gujrat was destroyed by the eunuch Qutubuddin Aibak in the year 1196 A.D. The famous Buddist university of Nalanda had the same fate in the year 1200 A.D. when Mohammed Bakhtiyar Khilji attacked the township and massacared the harmless Buddist monks and violated the nuns.

For fuldstændighedens skyld skal nævnes, at Det Alexandrinske Biblioteks destruktion er omdiskuteret.
