After the crusades, religious leaders took control of Islam. As a consequence no further intellectual growth took place. The populations of the Islamic countries remained static until colonisation by the European powers introduced western medicine and education. Previously, most of their children died before adulthood. In my lifetime the number of Islamics has gone from about 200 million to over 1300 million. It is st ill a controlling religion. no deviation is allowed. In the Western world it is possible to say that you do not believe in the Christion god, but not so in the Islamic world. It is quite clear that if they ever become the dominant power in the West they will enforce compliance with their beliefs.. I say " the West" because eastern Asia is unlikely to be as foolish as we are.
I am someone who was happy to serve his country in WW II, but now I regard it as a waste of time. I admire Germany and Japan for turning defeat into victory; I despise the French and British for turning victory into defeat..
