You are wrong about Islam not being a creative force. There are verses promoting critical thinking, exploration and empiricism.

Correction. They have fallen off, because of NON-ADHERENCE, for the most part, to the Quran, and adherence to HADITH, which are statements attributed to Muhammad, but have NO VALIDITY as a source of Islam.

Fears and hatred - ya, you could say that. Politics and racism.

Prove it if you can.
