Reinvigorating Arab world science

The call to renew scientific discovery that was so much a part of the Arab/Islamic world 1,000 years ago, was expressed by the British scientist, Jim Al-Khalili.  Having grown up in Iraq, he was educated through rote learning but transcended that in his own scientific discoveries.  Now he advises that the Arab region, noting Saudi Arabia and Qatar, is renewing the commitment to exploratory learning and scientific advancement.  Perhaps the Arab diaspora that has restricted discovery and innovation will reverse in the coming years.
