Just Wondering ... Why are Most Islamic Countries also Bankrupt?


Is It the Chicken, the Egg or are we just in the Soup?

I have often wondered how the Muslim World would look (financially) if the Oil Producing States were taken out of the equation?   ... Lets have a look:

It seems to me that if you take oil out of the equation the Islamic world is financially bankrupt!
Is this the financial legacy and the culture that want to import and then pass on to our children? ... hmmm?
