Perhaps you should consider the claim that it was roughly 80
years ago when the Arab world started feeling massively
interfered with by the West. The time would be about right. Or
do you believe a 1400 yr old religion just took a turn for the
worse for no reason at all?
I would also point out that the Arab world was much more
"civilized" when the west was still largely barbaric. We tend
to forget these things and see only the perspective of today and
only a small part of that.
