You are making incredible generalizations without any substance.
Muslims don’t disregard their past. It is just one school within many schools that preaches to disregard past (Wahhabism). And it is a school that has immense US support via their support for Saudi regime. I really don’t understand how it became face of islamic world within a couple of decades. It is fucked up.
Egyptian government did not consider leveling pyramids. It was made up by some anti-islamic group.
And please don’t give America as an example here. What did Anglo-saxons and spanish destroy to create the culture you see in new continents? Compare this to middle east, Anatolia, Balkans). Just go talk to archaeologists about state of native-american (or indian,whatever the appropriate word is) artifacts in even modern USA. Protecting a 250 years of your own heritage is not comparable to what muslims did for centuries. Aside from most recent century (when nationalistic mood over took islamic world), not only muslims protected their own heritage, they were most friendly for others’ compared to rest of the world. I don’t know if there is anything comparable exist. If you want to see what I mean, look at what Spanish did to heritage of Moors. It is the only instance when western civilization over took a land that used to be muslim(other than colonization purposes), and the results were catastrophic.
Yeah, this is the difference in cultures really.
