On Arabs, Stench And Filth.

Rating: 3.8
Arabs gave the world Algebra
And the science of Alchemy
When Europe was in its dark ages
And Aristotle was blasphemy.
Arabs gave the world soap to wash out filth
And do away with stench
I write this down and think
I sound like a condescending wench
They gave the world sugar
To sweeten the palate and acid tongues too.
Here I go again.

Adam, this is not about religion. Arabs are Muslim, Christian and Jewish. Nor is this about the crusades, there is a lot to be discussed there. This is about an ugly peice of writing that described Arabs as filth and an explanation that every civilization made contributions to mankind. It is about not using this site for verbal bullets and turning it into a battleground. Thanks for your comments. GS
