Despite people like Fruitek and things like terrorism, I still think the Arabian culture is basically good. We have Arab people to thank for preserving Greek and Roman documents throughout the Middle Ages, while white European situation was mired a sea of strife and illiteracy. It is the classical Greco-Roman material in those documents that have influenced current Western philosophy, art, and law.

And now it is the Arabs who are mired in a sea of illiteracy and strife living under the boot heel of thieving ruthless dictators.
Tough break - they should have destroyed the material and the dictators.

Well with Americans getting brainwashed by CNN, ABC, NBC, Fox News and Hollywood, I am not surprised that they know very LITTLE about Arab culture.
If only they knew about Arabs contribution to Maths and Sciences.
Oh well, ignorance is bliss.

Before the age of Islam Arabs had a very rich culture, they were often more civilized than the Europeans and highly contributed in science and math. However, ever since the majority of them became religious fanatics and turned to dictatorships they began to lag behind the West and their culture is not a one I'd like to live in...

Actually, it was the other way around. The period prior to the founding of Islam was a savage period known as the "Age of Ignorance", with Islam effectively giving birth to a whole new civilization.

I don't know if you can read Chinese, so I'll give you a site in English with more information on the Golden Age of Islam:

I wouldn't call the ancient Egyptian civilization "Age of Ignorance"... It all depends on your definition of "Arabic culture/civilization".

If you're referring to Pharaonic Egypt, I'm not even sure if Arabs existed yet at that time.

As for the "Age of Ignorance", it's a reference to Arabia as it existed at the time Muhammad appeared on the scene.
