Right here is Sara Dogan’s Foreword to the pamphlet:
It has change into modern of late among the many leftist elites to accuse the West of pilfering its treasures — each bodily assets and mental improvements — from native and minority cultures. The clear ethical lesson, we’re to know, is that there’s nothing notably noteworthy or distinctive about Western tradition and by extension about America. As an alternative, we should always really feel deep disgrace that our ancestors expropriated the bodily and mental capital of the peoples we conquered.
On this well timed and illuminating new pamphlet, “Stealing the West’s Cultural Heritage,” Jihad Watch director Robert Spencer addresses this lie head-on, first debunking the work of “Center East skilled” Diana Darke who claims in a latest guide that a few of Christian Europe’s most beautiful constructions together with Notre-Dame and St. Mark’s have been impressed by Islamic mosques. Spencer eviscerates Darke’s claims, displaying how the architectural timeline she presents is at odds with the origins and development of Islam.
Spencer then turns his consideration to the broader query of why scientific exploration and innovation exploded in Christian cultures however stalled in Muslim ones. He concludes that the distinction lies within the two faiths’ differing conceptions of God.
