Muslims Not Amused With Atheist Dawkin's Comment On Muslim Nobel Prize Winners

Richard Dawkins seems to have upset many (and not just Muslims) with a Twitter post regarding the dearth of Muslim Nobel Prize winners. The hardcore atheist said:

 “..all the world’s Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge. They did great things in the Middle Ages, though.”
Apparently he was called everything from racist to Islamophobe (the usual name calling), and defended his comment with, basically, the truth: Muslims "aren't a race."

".. What they have in common is a religion. Rather than Trinity, would you prefer the comparison with Jews? Google it.”
Al Arabiya has responses from both Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
