THEY CAME. THEY SAW. THEY PLAGIARIZED. 1001 so-called Muslim inventions, virtually none of which were actually invented by Muslims

Working its way around the country is a short film entitled “1001 Inventions and the Library of Secrets” which claims that much of the science we take for granted was drawn from Islamic discoveries.

This is the Muslim BS propaganda film that the above video tore to shreds.

MUSLIM URBAN LEGENDS: These past few years have seen many inventions falsely claimed and attributed to Islamic inventors, which in fact either existed in pre-Islamic eras, were invented by other cultures, or both.

LINK Such FALSE claims have even been forced upon the unsuspecting public in a worldwide tour which opened with an exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, England, then went to New York City, at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan funded by taxpayers to the tune of a $40,000 grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities. It was accompanied by a shameless piece of propaganda titled “How Islamic inventors changed the world” written by Paul Vallely and  has received much praise from Muslims and is still being widely circulated on Islamic websites, forums, blogs, and is even used as a source (to validate false claims of Islamic inventions)

This article boldly opened with the following statement: “From coffee to cheques and the three-course meal, the Muslim world has given us many innovations that we take for granted in daily life, 20 of which Vallely nominates as the most influential.

When you click on any of these 20 inventions listed below, you will see how very little, if anything, Muslims had to do with them.

  1. .
    Nice. A good analysis of Islam, for a change. Yes, there never was a Golden Age of islam, and neither were there any Muslim inventions.

    What happened is that islam conquered vibrant Christian and Jewish nations, enslaved their people with the unbeliever Jizya tax system and the unbeliever Covenant of Dhimmitude, and sucked these regions dry. And then they claimed any inventions, past or present, to be Muslim inventions, when they were nothing of the sort.

    See this paper on


  2. Muslims not only stole discoveries they also burned books, during khilji conquest of India khilji burned Nalanda university (oldest university) library which went on burning for 3 months because of number of books

  3. After readings some of the comments, I was surprised by how much hate you guys have towards Islam and Muslims, you just lie and lie…some claim that Muslims didn’t contribute to science or medicine or Algebra…I think you are just bluffing…It’s really Sarcastic that one Muslim scholar called Khwarizmi is called the father of the Algebra, Jaber bin Hayyan was called the father of Chemistry! There are hundreds of Muslim scholars who changed the world, here are some of them go learn some history! and stop this madness, or at least be objective and stop spreading hate….and you know what, I’ll assume that some of these inventions are not attributed to Muslim scholars, at least they preserved the knowledge and spread it all over the world in the time your ancestors in Europe were decapitating and burning scholars and thinkers, stop spreading hate, and at least be objective when you point out mistakes….Go and read about Alzahrawi! Ibn Sina! Ibn Zuhr… There is no enough space and time to mention them all…

    • hazem, you don’t have to keep changing names to post your ignorant statements here. muslims did not invent Algebra. All they did was name the number zero. Algebra came from Hindus in India. muslims steal just about everything they claim to have invented. Lying is part of your phony religion.

      And yes, EVERYONE who reads this blog HATES islam and most muslims.

    • You punk…Muslims stole Indian numerals and mathematics.They devised nothing in that mathematics.Get serious.

    • You’re obviously an idiot. All the Muslims have contributed to society is blood shed, hatred, and legal pedophilia. They are a bunch of backwards thinking cavemen who serve no purpose

    • You read history well
      All these scholars and thinkers were atheists and were beheaded .
      They helped Islam . Islam built nothing but on the contrary destroyed everything .
      And to appreciate their rule in the Islamic civilization they were all burnt to death or beheaded just because the denied and criticized Islam .
      Most of what Muslims preserved was by the aramiec thinkers

  4. Do´nt forget Charles Martel, Poitiers 732 A.D. For more information look at the Wikipedia or your encyclopedia.
    Was Charles Martel the first islamofob?

    • Where in the Quran did you read that…give me the number of the verse, how stupid….and one more thing, you Christians used to decapitate and burn scholars and thinkers in the middle ages…go grab a book and learn history idiot


        “Shaykh Abdul-Aziz Ibn Baaz, the supreme religious authority of Saudi Arabia, believes the earth is flat, and so does Muslim Researcher on Astronomy Fadhel Al-Sa’d, who declared in a televised debate aired on Iraqi Al-Fayhaa TV (October 31, 2007) that the Earth is flat as evidenced by Qur’anic verses and that the sun is much smaller than the Earth and revolves around it.”

  5. BNI, please consider uploading videos to LIveleak, it’s the last true frontier for free speech on the web..

    Use jDownloader or one of the many other apps to download from Youtube…(pick from various formats/resolutions)

    And for more ‘entrenched’ videos elsewhere – use hypercam2 – just make sure to turn off the ‘mic’ in your ‘master volume’ settings so it doesn’t record both sources, making it sound ‘canned’…

    And if i can be of any assistance…

    • Guronimo, I don’t know how to download other than to upload them from LiveLeak and onto my Youtube account. I use a MAC and not all Download apps work with it. But I am a Computer Dummy, especially about videos, and am unable to download the really graphic ones now.

      I use WordPress software which has an app called VideoPress which I have activated but I can’t get it to work on anything other than Vimeo videos. Any advice?

      • yes! happy to oblige; check out this 1min video tutorial for this free app for the mac –

        and another such free mac app –

        And you can(!) embed your LL uploads on BNI – spare yourself the youtube BS… you can make your uploads ‘private’ (on BNI only) or public; LL + BNI…

        Under any LL video there’s a red rectangle in the left corner with
        GET EMBED CODE -click, copy link and paste/test it out on your site..

        You may recall a recent street riot in a tourist town in Spain – incredulously enough, by the following day, YouTube deleted the video for violating its ‘hate speech’ policy! It’s the 2nd video from the very bottom on my channel –

        So please do open a LiveLeak account, I wish I did so ages ago, it’s great to see Pat Condell there and the party can’t start without you… :)

        … I’ll contact you via your gmail account in the next day or two- presently swamped somewhat – and as always, my best to you & yours,


      • I tried the LiveLeak embed code but it doesn’t load the video creen, just the link. I have no idea how to use the VideoPress feature and I don’t think it works with LiveLeak anyway. I used to use Vodpod which was sold to Lockerz and I they don’t accept embed codes from LiveLeak. They could handle the old embed codes but not the ones they use now (iframe)

        My problem is not being able to load from LiveLeak to here.

  6. Even legitimate discoveries made by Arabs and Persians during the Middle Ages were made by very liberal scholars within the Muslim world who weren’t afraid of free inquiry. And in the Middle Ages, it was Europe that was backward and dominated by strict authoritarian religion. And the Middle East, a couple of centuries after Muhammad, began to have a much more liberal view of the world. If they had continued on the path of a liberal view, they might have advanced much further.

    While the Arabs did not invent algebra and geometry, they did make some contributions to it. They did not invent astronomy, but preserved much of the knowledge that was made in the Western world, and made a few contributions to that as well. They did make some contributions to medicine as well reading classical texts in Greek and translating them into Arabic and learning from them.

    To be fair to Muslims, they, under a far more liberal culture did preserve much of the knowledge of the ancient world that would have been lost forever.

    It was around the 1400’s that the pendulum began to swing the other way. The Arab and Muslim world began to follow a much more rigid interpretation and literal interpretation of the Quran and forsook much of the knowledge they had gained from the West. And the West began to break the yoke of strict authoritarian religion and began to think for themselves. This was the foundation of the artistic and cultural Rennaisance, the Protestant Reformation, Humanism, which are many of the building blocks of modern Western civilization. The roles are now reversed. Islam, under a literal interpretation of the Quran and Hadiths, now enjoys no liberty, culture, or science, and is now stagnated. And the West, forsaking a literal interpretation of religion, and restricting its power in politics, began to enjoy a growth in intellect, the arts, and sciences.

    • “To be fair to Muslims, they, under a far more liberal culture did PRESERVE much of the knowledge of the ancient world that would have been lost forever.”

      How-so? If mohammed had never been invented, apart from there being about 270 million more civilians, maybe one billion with natural growth, why wouldn’t that knowledge have made its way throughout the world?

      • Around the same time filthy mohammed was abusing Aiesha and raping and pillaging around Arabia with the god that created the UNIVERSE giving his personal thumbs up, this Idol Worshiper in India the Mathematician and Philosopher Brahmagupta did this.

        It really shows how much the world regressed when mohammeds prostitute mother was raped by the town rapists resulting in the spawning of islam the retard cult of death.

        Their golden age was the rape and pillage of Non Muslims and claiming it as theirs from the beginning and as we see nothing changes, they have added nothing to humanity and never will. I honestly believe that without islam we humans would have advanced further then we are today maybe even war would have been a thing of the past.

    • It’s unfair, the Muslims made great innovations and discoveries that we should credit for them.

      Some of the greatest cultural and technological achievements made by the Muslims are hijab, goat sex, innovative suicide bombing techniques such as rectal suicide bombing, skyscraper demolition techniques using aircraft, contributions to medicine such as female genital mutilation and innovative military tactics such as hiding behind civilians in war.

    • Hi Mr.Liar …. Rape: go read some statistics about the rates of rape in the USA and Europe, and compare the numbers in the Arab world…our rates compared to your are almost (ZERO), the number you don’t like…kill: the number of Iraqis killed by your country exceeded one million victims! not mentioning hundreds of thousands killed in Afghanistan under the name of freedom and liberty…lie: I think you know about this much more than me…It’s your name after all….


  7. i guess paul vallely is muslim and i liked for the record. even though coffee is Ethopian and not arab. it was a christian monk who burned the berries

  8. That video has been taken down due to ‘copyright claims.’ Wish I could have seen it. Wonder who made that claim? hmm, let me guess, the owner of the 1001 inventions propaganda ?

  9. The first video “Science and Islam: A Reply …” is no longer working. The following error message is given:

    This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by a third party.-Sorry about that.”

    Given the image on the screen shot features “Answering Islam”‘s David Wood, one wonders which third party objection is involved./

  10. Most of the are illiterate, so how they can say they have invented writing, or anything else for that matter, is rather puzzling. How they have time to invent anything when they are busy raping women and children, killilng in various ways, destroying cultural treasures, lifting their asses five times a day, I have no idea.

  11. I have a special message to all the Islamic Jihad warriors out there. A message that just might save your lives if you are smart enough to read this. DON’T MESS WITH THE UNITED STATES!!!

    This nation is different than any other that you have targeted in the past. Americans don’t tolerate animalistic behavior and we will defeat you because we are different from anyone you’ve faced before.

    If you don’t believe me take a look at those f-15 fire jets screaming over your heads. Some of those are piloted be American women. That’s right! We don’t put our women in berkas, we put them in F-15s and send them after you guys. The mighty Mujahideen are being killed by American women, and the survivors are running and hiding from those American women. You might want to think about that before you bring your Jihad to America. We have the same kind of women living here in the states. I know because I’ve had to run and hide a couple of times myself. Lol

    Now Oshma Bin Laden was in a fortress surrounded by security in the middle of a Pakistani military center and our guys swooped in, killed him and stole his body without losing a single American.

    You might want to think about that because if you think our fighters are good in your land, wait until you try to fight them in the streets of America. If you bring Jihad to America you will not only have to fight our women and our military, you’ll also have to fight our National Guard, law enforcement officers, local militias, and border patrol.

    And here’s the real kicker. 8 out of 10 American homes are well armed with shotguns, rifles, and handguns. That’s because we live in freedom! Not what you’re used to. It doesn’t matter how much money you donate to Democrats, they’re never gonna succeed in taking guns away from the American people. Jihad in America doesn’t have a chance!

    So do yourselves a favor…. Don’t mess with the United States! Keep your Jihad right there in the Middle East where it belongs. Hey, every culture has it’s national sport. Ours is football… yours is Jihad.

  12. muslim population of the world approx 20% NOBEL PRIZE winners 7

    Jewish population of the world approx 0.02% NOBEL PRIZE winners 129 up to 1996


    From a Christian

    • @Mapleleaf,

      Add to your statement.

      The amount of technology/science/medicine developments and patents that comes out of tiny Israel vs. the entire ME-just a few patents in as many years.

      ….and that ladies and gentlemen is the difference between us and them.

    • And most of the Muslim Nobel prizes are for “peace”. I think ONE for mathematics, one for literature , not sure about the other one, literature also? None for science or medicine or physics etc.

  13. The moslems are only first class liars, citing reports I wrote working in Saudi Arabia where I later observed six different signatures on the same report. Then there was the certificate of failure that was proudly displayed and touted as his english certificate from his university days….

  14. Those 2 comments summarized the lies of the islamists, which Muslims are perfect in. The inventions Islam achieved is very obvious by now, jihad, the viel for women and some men (the cowards are covering their heads like women).
    But, let us be fair, if we the westerners treat them as criminals according to OUR laws they will stop. So, yes, it is OUR fault that we allow them to block our streets to pray, to force their ugly habits on us like ‘halal’ food. Mosques (the dens of terrorists) are all over. Voting for Muslim leaders is catastrophic to say the least.

    Wake up America

  15. Well you have to give them one thing, they’ve got that lieing thing down pat. The questions still remains, who are you going to believe, them or the history. It’s a no brainer for those who utilize the brain pan group for something other then a hat rack.

    They are good at deceit, fraud, lies, subversion, cruelty, intolerance, wickedness, pediphilia, woman hating and killing for all most always something small, such as a disagreement of their purposes in this life, and a host of other items one does not aspire to accomplish, nor teach to a well founded youth, but, inventons, yeah, I don’t think so. In the famous words of one of our trusted leaders of this past half century, RR, “yeah they claim to take credit for so much that it just isn’t so” (words mixed on purpose to illistrate their fraud).

    Has anyone else noticed, not a single one of these so called inventions was backed by a refutable scholar, scientist, or a person of anyother religious persausion, yeah I though so too, did I mention they have that lieing thing down pat?

    Semper Fi.

  16. Cat:
    What a shame it is that we can no longer use the peace prize as the hallmark of distinction. Since its gross misuse by politically inclined liberals to award it to people who have either done nothing, or have deliberately reversed the “peace” of the world or their region. Of course, I refer to the august personages of Barack Obama and Yasser Arafat. Both were given the coveted prize and neither deserved even honorable mention because neither was or is honorable.

  17. Some say the Muslims are the “great bull shit artists” of the world, and I must agree. Many on the list came from Ancient China many thousands of years earlier and some were reintroduced by Muslim traders going along the silk route. Perhaps they invented Silk too!

    One thing is true, I am sure there has only ever been one or two Nobel prizes awarded to Muslims – ever. However the Jewish people have been awarded this paramount award many, many times. For Medicine, Literature, Music, Chemistry Math & Science and so many other disciplines And THE PEACE PRIZE. The Muslims have one for Literature. But this is very good for a cult that mostly has an Oral tradition, and when their multitude can neither read or write.

  18. Total lies as the muslims practise their taqiyya lies of BS. What a filthy bunch of low life savages to steal the inventions of honourable inventors for their own sick desires to try to feel important even if it means to lie and cheat. I will let the low percentage of noble peace prizes awarded to muslims tell the tale of the tape as the very small percentage of Jews in the world, are honoured with the vast majority of peace prize awards while the large number of muslims are awarded virtually zero peace prizes. There is no shame in their lies to try to make the savages feel good about themselves because they have no morals or any normal feelings of consciencious.

  19. Islam destroys everything in it’s path it does not contribute anything to society but warfare, genocide, murder, rape and the destruction of cultures.

    “…..a culture that creates nothing, invents nothing, produces nothing, and aspires to nothing except genocide.”

    “Islam has no culture to speak of, unless one includes its reputation for barbarity, cruelty, intolerance, slavery, nihilism, and an unquenched malice for any culture that is measurably superior to it, for any culture that is pro-living on earth, pro-freedom, pro-reason. That culture happens to be Western culture. “-Edward Cline
