Palestinian-American Munir Nayfeh (1945 – ) performed experiments using a laser to move individual atoms.
Iranian-American Ali Javan (1926 – 2016) as a teenager was educated at a school in Iran run by Zoroastrians, but he may have been a Muslim. He was the leader of one of two teams that claim to have built the first laser to use a gas rather than solid components.
Hossein Yassaie fled Iran, changing his name from Mohammed Hossein Yassaie to Hossein Yassaie. He led a team in “Silicon Valley” that invented some of the technologies used to accelerate the processing of 2D and 3D images.

“CLOCK BOY” BOMB SCARE

start of synopsis >
In 2015 on the first school day after the anniversary of the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks, 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed in Irving Texas showed to teachers a clock he falsely claimed he built or invented. Actually, the clock has been identified as digital bedroom alarm clock item 63-756 in Radio Shack’s 1986 catalog, manufactured in a factory by Micronta.
Ahmed merely removed the clock from its original case, which required partial disassembly. The alarm clock went off during class, and the police were called.
The liberal media praised the boy and President Obama invited him to the White House.
Ahmed’s father used the publicity to promote his website “proving” that the 9/11 World Trade Center attack was not done by Muslims.

start of synopsis >
Structural engineer Fazlur Rahman Khan was a Bangladeshi-American who obtained a Ph.D. in structural engineering from the University of Illinois.
His 1963 design of the 42 story tall DeWitt Chestnut apartment building was the first to use steel load-bearing exterior walls (called tube walls) to support part of the weight of a building.
The (non-Muslim) designers of the twin World Trade Center towers 1 and 2 in New York City carried this concept further.
Khan’s 1970 design of the Sears Tower in Chicago used 3 rows of 3 buildings each, joined together to look like one building. This is called bundled tube construction, and was copied by most super-tall buildings for the next 25 years.
I assume that Khan was an Ismaili Shia Sevener.
