Richard Dawkins Insults Muslims

No word when the Fatwa ordering his death will be issued. From the Daily Mail:

Professor Richard Dawkins has become embroiled in a Twitter row after he claimed the last time Muslims contributed something worthwhile was during the Dark Ages.
 [Ed: even then, it was actually the Jewish and Christian intellectuals in the conquered countries].

The 71-year-old author went on to tweet that the world's Muslims had won fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge.

His comments sparked anger among high-profile Twitter users including writer Caitlin Moran and economics editor at Channel 4 News, Faisal Islam.

Moran tweeted: 'It's time someone turned Richard Dawkins off and then on again.

'Something's gone weird.'

While Islam said: 'Actually, over the last two decades, it's 8-4 against Trinity.
As would be expected, since he is a journalist, Faisal Islam twists the facts to suit the narrative. Trinity College has 32 Nobel laureates, while only 10 have been awarded to Muslims.
