    I don't know if I would include mining natural resources or not. It would be better to limit it to human accomplishments.

    For the western world the list may include things like....

    Electrical power
    Communications
    Education
    Disease immunizations
    Manufacturing processes

    The hard part for a western world list is deciding what goes in the top 5 out of countless possibilities, but I can't come up with even one thing for the Middle East.

    1. Oil
    2. Oil
    3. Oil
    4. Oil
    5. Oil

    Now let's see what the West has contributed to the Middle East:

    1. Dumped Zionists into Palestine because they don't like them in the West.
    2. Killed Millions of People
    3. Injured Millions
    4. The use of nuclear weapons in the middle east causing pollution for years to come
    5. Destroyed cities and villages

    ----

    Now who's the terrorist? :)

    So true. Midlle east countries specially muslim countries have nothing to offer but this. I doubt what would have been the driving force in countries like Saudi arabia.
    Can you elaborate. I don't see any sense here.

    If the Middle East had no human population the west would have gone in and pumped the oil. This is a simple matter of labor, and mere labor is hardly a meaningful contribution to society.

    But we'll just go ahead and say that oil is #1 anyway. What would be #2? Can you think of anything?



    Honestly, this thread illustrates why your list of West "contributions" have taken place. When Middle Easterners add absolutely nothing to civilization other than the labor to pump oil, it's no surprise the world doesn't respect that region. For the past 2,000 years or so they have been a failure to the point that nobody can name even 5 contributions to society.

    When you look at the entire history of human civilization, there are only two groups that have to be classified as failures: Africans and Middle Easterners. The human development difference between those two and the rest of humanity is just unbelievable.

    Those are the list of bad things Westerners did in the Middle East, while on the other hand the Middle East is supporting their economies by supplying them with cheap oil and gas.

    I think you needed to pay attention in history lessons instead of asking webmasters this useless question.

    So your thread is responsible for all the atrocities that have been committed in the Middle East by Westerners, that's an interesting one, I knew you was a lunatic.

    I think Somalia is a terrific example of the contributions a middle eastern country can make once their oil is gone. Any guesses on how many of those countries will look exactly like Somalia once the West reaches oil independence, which is unquestionably coming?

    In other words, you can't think of anything..... because there is nothing and you know it.

    I'm pretty sure he is talking about the depleted uranium we put on the tips of our missiles (and I think large caliber bullets). They also coat it on tanks to make them stronger. I'm not familiar with the science of this, so don't ask me how it works.

    The military has said that it is safe, but some people think otherwise. It may be responsible for Gulf War Syndrome.

    At least one nuke has gone off in Iraq (may have been Afghanistan). It was some years back when a US weapons depot was attacked and the whole thing lit up. There is a video of it online and you can see what appears to be a tactical nuke going off.

    1) Islam is not a race
    2) The thread is about the Middle East, not Islam

    If you want to cry racism because this thread targets Arabs, perhaps you have a case. Outside of that, you need to wake up and figure out that Islam != Arab.

    Just to point out the obvious flaw there, if it's 'unquestionably' then why is there a question mark at the end? Is that an unquestioning guess or simply wishful thinking? :)

    The list is connected to this: http://www.1001inventions.com/exhibition

    Pretty sad that they have to go back 1,000 years to create a science and technology exhibition since they couldn't find anything modern. Compare that to a place like Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry (msichicago.org) where pretty much everything is modern. If the middle east set up a museum like this, it would be one tiny empty room since they have nothing to go inside it. The middle east is a disgrace to human development.

    I have a challenge for you IsraeI. Name just one invention to come out of the middle east in the past 100 years that people around the world are using. Just one. Good luck!

    I don't think Arabs would want that to count since they hate Israel. Besides, that list doesn't have anything of significance on it (at least not by the standards we are looking for in this thread).
