Arab Culture

Commentary by Dr. Gerhard Falk



The Arab Contribution to Human Civilization


Kidnapping, hijacking, beheading, bombing, bloodshed and murder are the principal characteristics of Arab culture.

Every human culture can be identified by those characteristics which make it unique and different from other cultures in the same sense as every human being has a personality which makes each person different from all others. This does not mean that we do not resemble one another. Individuals and entire nations resemble each other and yet are different. Consider Canada. There is a great deal of similarity between Canada and the United States. Yet, Canada is distinct in that French is its second language, it is a member of the British Commonwealth, Canadians spell differently and they are far more British than we.

We could name numerous countries and show how each has a particular ethos. For example, Italy is the home of great music, great art and mathematics. The Chinese should be credited with inventing the printing press and pasta, which Marco Polo brought from there to Italy in the 13th century. We could go on and on and show how all mankind has contributed to human civilization.

Now, the Arab contribution to human happiness consists of so long a list of crimes against humanity that all the libraries in the world could not hold an account of only a few of them. Here is a very partial list:

In July of 2006 they kidnap three Israel soldiers and bombard Israeli civilians from behind the Gaza and Lebanese borders. Two soldiers are kidnapped when the Arabs cross from Lebanon into Israel. A full scale war ensues. The kidnapping and bombardments have no visible cause. All was peaceful until the mad Arabs resorted once more to murder.

In Iraq, the Arabs murder each other every day. Sunni Muslims kill Shiite Muslims by tossing bombs into Mosques, market places, vehicles etc.

In Indonesia, an all Muslim country, the Arabs throw bombs into a nightclub.

In Egypt, a 90% Muslim country, the Arabs murder German tourists.

In Iraq the Arabs kill Fabrizio Quattrocchi, an Italian, just for the pleasure of murder.

In the United States the Arabs murder 3,000 Americans in 2001, having attacked the Trade Center in 1993 when they killed six. In the all Arab country Jordan, the Arabs throw a bomb into a wedding party and in the Philippines the Arabs abduct and kill Christians. Likewise in Nigeria, where the Arabs kill Christians just for the enjoyment of killing.

In 1973, the Arabs kill the American Ambassador to the Sudan, Cleo Noel, for no visible reason.

In Paris, France, two Americans, Anne van Zanten and Grace Cutler, are killed by Arabs, who toss a bomb into a restaurant.

In 1985, the Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro is attacked and several Americans are murdered, including a man in a wheelchair.

Arab apologists try to blame all of this on “the Jews.” Yet, not all the countries in which the Arabs murder people are  Jewish. In England, the Arabs attacked the subway and killed and wounded hundreds. England is the most friendly country towards the Arabs who live among them.

There was a time, many years ago, when Arabs were responsible for art, mathematics, philosophy and advances in many forms of knowledge later delivered to Europe. That time is long gone. Now, Arabs “contribute” only kidnapping, bloodshed, hate and murder.

P.S. The Arabs are always right, no matter how heinous their crimes. Every cruelty they commit is always the fault of, you guessed it, “the Jews”.

Al s'alaam al aleikum.
