What the Obamessiah didn't say in Egypt

First, what he did say:

"It was Islam -- at places like Al-Azhar University -- that carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for Europe's Renaissance and Enlightenment. It was innovation in Muslim communities that developed the order of algebra, our magnetic compass and tools of navigation...Islamic culture has given us majestic arches and soaring spires; timeless poetry and cherished music; elegant calligraphy and places of peaceful contemplation."

I don't know about the compass and navigation, but the rest is certainly true.

What should have followed that:

"But that was centuries ago. What the [expletive] happened? Why the [expletive] did you sink into barbarism after that?"
