Why is the Muslim world plagued by instability, undemocratic governments, and sectarian violence?


The GDP of the world’s fifty-seven Muslim-majority countries combined is less than that of France

Those fifty-seven (Islamic) countries are home to about 500 universities, compared to more than 5,000 in the United States and 8,000 in India.

Fewer new book titles are published each year in Arabic, the language of 300 million people, than in Greek, spoken by only 15 million.

More books are translated into Spanish each year than have been translated into Arabic in the last century.
