Carly Fiorina


Excerpt: Hewlett-Packard CEO Praises Islamic Civilization

(Carly Fiorina says the West is indebted to Islam)

January 30, 2002

The contributions of the Islamic world are very much a part of Western civilization's heritage, said Carly Fiorina, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hewlett-Packard Company.

"The technology industry would not exist without the contributions of Arab mathematicians. Sufi poet-philosophers like Rumi challenged our notions of self and truth. Leaders like Suleiman contributed to our notions of tolerance and civic leadership," Fiorina said in a speech, "Technology, Business and Our Way of Life: What's Next," delivered in Minneapolis, Minnesota September 26.

Speaking two weeks after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Fiorina said, "In dark and serious times like this, we must affirm our commitment to building societies and institutions that aspire to this kind of greatness."

Following is an excerpt from Fiorina's 26 September speech:

CARLY FIORINA MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA SEPTEMBER 26, 2001

"TECHNOLOGY, BUSINESS AND OUR WAY OF LIFE: WHAT'S NEXT"

There was once a civilization that was the greatest in the world.

It was able to create a continental super-state that stretched from ocean to ocean, and from northern climes to tropics and deserts. Within its dominion lived hundreds of millions of people, of different creeds and ethnic origins.

One of its languages became the universal language of much of the world, the bridge between the peoples of a hundred lands. Its armies were made up of people of many nationalities, and its military protection allowed a degree of peace and prosperity that had never been known. The reach of this civilization's commerce extended from Latin America to China, and everywhere in between.

And this civilization was driven more than anything, by invention. Its architects designed buildings that defied gravity. Its mathematicians created the algebra and algorithms that would enable the building of computers, and the creation of encryption. Its doctors examined the human body, and found new cures for disease. Its astronomers looked into the heavens, named the stars, and paved the way for space travel and exploration.

Its writers created thousands of stories. Stories of courage, romance and magic. Its poets wrote of love, when others before them were too steeped in fear to think of such things.

When other nations were afraid of ideas, this civilization thrived on them, and kept them alive. When censors threatened to wipe out knowledge from past civilizations, this civilization kept the knowledge alive, and passed it on to others.

While modern Western civilization shares many of these traits, the civilization I'm talking about was the Islamic world from the year 800 to 1600, which included the Ottoman Empire and the courts of Baghdad, Damascus and Cairo, and enlightened rulers like Suleiman the Magnificent.

Although we are often unaware of our indebtedness to this other civilization, its gifts are very much a part of our heritage. The technology industry would not exist without the contributions of Arab mathematicians. Sufi poet-philosophers like Rumi challenged our notions of self and truth. Leaders like Suleiman contributed to our notions of tolerance and civic leadership.

And perhaps we can learn a lesson from his example: It was leadership based on meritocracy, not inheritance. It was leadership that harnessed the full capabilities of a very diverse population -- that included Christianity, Islamic, and Jewish traditions.

This kind of enlightened leadership -- leadership that nurtured culture, sustainability, diversity and courage -- led to 800 years of invention and prosperity.

In dark and serious times like this, we must affirm our commitment to building societies and institutions that aspire to this kind of greatness. More than ever, we must focus on the importance of leadership -- bold acts of leadership and decidedly personal acts of leadership.

""Pernah ada satu tamadun yang terbesar di dunia.
Ia mampu untuk mencipta benua super-negeri yang terbentang dari lautan ke lautan, dan dari climes utara tropika dan padang pasir. Dalam menguasai hidup beratus-ratus juta orang, pegangan-pegangan yang berbeza dan asal-usul etnik.
Salah satu bahasa menjadi bahasa universal banyak dunia, jambatan antara rakyat seratus tanah. Tentera yang telah dibuat rakyat dari negara, dan perlindungan tentera membenarkan ijazah keamanan dan kemakmuran yang tidak pernah dikenali. Jangkauan dagang ini tamadun meluas dari Amerika Latin ke China, dan di mana-mana di antara.
Dan Tamadun ini digerakkan lebih daripada apa-apa, oleh ciptaan. Arkitek yang mereka bentuk bangunan yang mencabar graviti. Ahli matematik telah menubuhkan algebra dan algoritma yang membolehkan pembinaan komputer, dan penciptaan kod rahsia. Doktor mengkaji tubuh manusia, dan mendapati penawar baru untuk penyakit. Ahli astronominya menyelidiki langit, menamakan bintang-bintang, dan membuka jalan bagi perjalanan dan penerokaan angkasa.
Penulis-penulisnya mencipta beribu-ribu cerita. Kisah-kisah keberanian, cinta dan sihir. Penyair yang menulis cinta, apabila orang lain sebelum mereka telah terlalu kaya di dalam ketakutan untuk memikirkan perkara itu.
Apabila negara-negara lain takutkan idea, tamadun ini maju ke atas mereka, dan disimpan mereka hidup-hidup. Apabila halangan mengancam untuk menghapuskan ilmu dari tamadun masa lampau, tamadun ini menghidupkan ilmu dan menyampaikannya kepada orang lain.
Manakala saham tamadun Barat moden banyak sifat-sifat ini, tamadun yang saya maksudkan adalah dunia Islam dari tahun 800 hingga 1600, yang termasuk Empayar Uthmaniyah dan mahkamah Baghdad, Damsyik dan Kaherah, dan pemerintah pencerahan seperti Suleiman yang Magnificent .
Walaupun kita sering tidak sedar keterhutangan kami ini kepada tamadun lain, hadiah adalah amat sebahagian daripada warisan kita. Industri teknologi tidak akan wujud tanpa sumbangan ahli matematik Arab. Penyair-ahli falsafah sufi seperti Rumi mencabar tanggapan kita diri dan kebenaran. Pemimpin seperti Suleiman menyumbang kepada tanggapan kita toleransi dan berkepimpinan.
Dan mungkin kita boleh belajar satu pengajaran daripada contoh beliau: Ia adalah kepimpinan berasaskan meritokrasi, bukan warisan. Ia adalah kepimpinan yang dimanfaatkan keupayaan penuh daripada penduduk yang pelbagai - yang termasuk agama Kristian, Islam, dan tradisi Yahudi.
Ini jenis kepimpinan pencerahan - kepimpinan yang memupuk budaya, kemampanan, kepelbagaian dan keberanian - membawa kepada 800 tahun rekacipta dan kemakmuran.
Pada zaman gelap dan serius seperti ini, kita mesti mengesahkan komitmen kami untuk bangunan persatuan dan institusi yang bercita-cita untuk jenis ini kebesaran. Lebih daripada biasa, kita mesti memberi tumpuan kepada kepentingan kepimpinan - tindakan berani kepimpinan dan perbuatan-perbuatan sini jelas peribadi kepimpinan"" - 


##Demikianlah seorang pengurus syarikat komputer yang terkenal, memberikan pendapat ikhlasnya dan meletakkan penghargaan yang begitu tinggi kepada tamadun Islam. Hanya orang yang berfikiran sempit sahaja yang berangan-angan mahu murtad dengan segera kerana menganggap Islam adalah agama kampungan, jumud, kolot dan ketinggalan zaman. Sedangkan orang-orang Barat yang berpendidikan tinggi secara peribadinya (walaupun mereka berusaha menyorokkan pendapat mereka) mengakui peranan Islam terhadap ketamadunan dunia. Namun masih ada segelintir dari mereka yang berani mengakuinya di khalayak ramai, walaupun selepas itu mereka dikenakan pelbagai tindakan dan hukuman.
Tidak lama selepas Carly Florina membuat ucap tama tersebut, beliau telah dipecat dari jawatannya...
Inilah Barat, masih angkuh, sombong dan tetap mahu mengubah sejarah.## - misteri dan keajaiban islam
