*Â The Islamaniacs lie when they open their mouths:
Apart from the oilslick Arab states and Brunei, where Western governments find, drill, refine and transport the oil only to shower greedy, primitive tribes with trillions of dollars in undeserved wealth, just about all Islamic countries are filthy and poor because of…Islam!
KUWAIT, April 28 (KUNA) — Although Islamic countries have a lot of resources, half of them are considered impoverished, Kuwait Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) Chairman Ali Al-Ghanim said Monday.
Speaking at the Meeting of Chairmen and Presidents of Islamic Chamber of Commerce with Business Leaders, held under the auspices of the Islamic Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI), Al-Ghanim said that the number of Muslims was over 1.3 billion, 22 percent of the world’s population.
Islamic countries have about 60 percent of the world’s oil reserves and and contribute more than 40 percent of the world’s exports, he added.
However, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of those countries accounted for only five percent of the wrold’s total GDP, he pointed out.
Al-Ghanim said that Muslim countries faced many challenges that could not be faced by governments alone, but required cooperation and the unity of efforts.
