Well, though I will say about the hadees that their texts should be accepted only after being put to the test of reason, rationality and context I agree with the rest of your post. Firstly, the first university in the world was started by a female Muslim in Fez, a city in current Morocco :

But look at the Taliban 1100 years later, the governors of the "Islamic" Emirate of Afghanistan who are denying education to females. :rofl: Oh how distorted have we become.

Second, you are correct, most of the "education" in at least the Capitalist world is meant not for thinking independent but just to become another cog in the wheel of the Capitalist dog-eat-dog ecosystem. For example, what is the need for the entire London School of Economics when that all that that college does is produce graduates who go out into the world to perpetuate the anti-human Capitalist system ? Does LSE teach simple steps on how to achieve a welfare-based society ? There surely must be many LSE graduates in India, Pakistan and USA but have they solved the socio-economic, social and political problems in these societies ? Problems that affect citizens every day ? And look at the 2+ million computer engineers and PhDs who have come out of Indian colleges in the last 20 years, have they ever devised a single local innovative microprocessor, operating system and memory or storage system ? So what is the purpose of such education ?

It depends on whom is reading the Hadith, when jahils read Quran and Hadith, they understand it from their narrow point of view. The real Ulema are always reading Quran and Hadith, they become old but still say we haven't learnt anything yet. Quran and Hadith is full of knowledge and wisdom, it makes a person full of love and light. This makes the person strong, his family strong and his community strong, the conclusion is a strong nation is built. Then Islam talks about social and welfare.

The Capitalist control the population through media and education. They give the basic to everybody but the rich keep trillions in their banks. You can have communism, Capitalism, socialism or whatever, when the heart of man is corrupt then everything is corrupt.

The Ottomans taught Medicine, History, Art, methodology, astronomy, geometry and calculus etc. These days mullahs haven't got a clue because they never heard of these subjects, and this is because their education level is low. The modern school system is the Maddrassa system, all they need is to add subjects on Quran, Hadith, Tafsir, Hafiz. Then have one special Maddrassa/Uni where children could learn to become experts, the same way medical professionals continue to study after University. In Pakistan I know many young people who failed in school and didn't want to learn, so their parents sent them to Maddrassa, now they are qualified molvi but mentally they are still slow and lazy, imagine the fatwas lol.

Any group that leave its path and become extremists must be condemned, Jews hate towards is no secret neither is Arab hate towards the Jews, even though both are cousins and more closer to each other than their Third " arm " of Abrahamic religions, Christianity.

Shouting ‘death to Arabs’, Israelis march through Muslim quarter

JERUSALEM: Thousands of flag-waving Israeli nationalists marched through the Muslim quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City on Sunday in a deeply divisive parade that Palestinian factions warned could reignite their conflict with Israel.
Police earlier fired stun grenades at Palestinians who pelted them with stones at the Al Aqsa mosque compound as record numbers of Jews visited the holy site, some of them appearing to pray in defiance of a long-standing ban.
The annual Jerusalem procession marks Israel’s capture of the Old City in the 1967 Middle East war and draws thousands of cheering, chanting participants to its narrow, stone streets.
“Death to Arabs,” some youths shouted as they entered Damascus Gate, the main entrance to the Old City’s Muslim neighbourhood.

Ahead of the march, police said 2,600 Jews toured Al Aqsa esplanade, a record number for a single day. Some of the visitors wore religious garb and prostrated themselves. A few held up Israeli flags and sang the national anthem.
The preacher of the mosque, Sheikh Ikrima Sabri, denounced their behaviour. “What happened today in Al Aqsa mosque hadn’t taken place since 1967,” he said, accusing the government of deliberately looking to escalate tensions.
The Islamist group Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip, also condemned the scenes, which went viral on social media.
“The Israel government is fully responsible for all these reckless policies and the following consequences,” senior Hamas official Bassem Naim said.
In recent years, Hamas has cast itself as a defender of Muslim Jerusalem. After weeks of confrontations last year over Palestinian evictions in the city, Hamas fired rockets into Israel during the march, triggering an 11-day war that killed at least 250 Palestinians in Gaza and 13 people in Israel.
As nationalists draped in Israel’s blue and white flag gathered at Damascus Gate, a drone flew overhead trailing a Palestinian flag. A man rushed up to the crowds and waved another Palestinian flag at them before being dragged away.
Inside the city, small fights sporadically broke out. One Israeli youth was videoed using pepper spray on a Palestinian woman, leading to an exchange of punches and kicks. However, some marchers said they had come in peace.
“I know my neighbours aren’t so happy that we’re here, but we didn’t come to annoy them, we came to be happy for Jerusalem,” said Yair Sussman, 17, a Jewish seminary student who studies at a school in the occupied West Bank.
Clashes were reported across the West Bank on Sunday, injuring at least 30 Palestinians, medics said.
Israel sees all of Jerusalem as its eternal and indivisible capital, while Palestinians want the eastern section as capital of their future state. Hamas sees all of modern-day Israel as occupied.
Palestinians view Sunday’s march as an Israeli show of force and part of a broader campaign to bolster Jewish presence across the city.
However, Israeli Minister Naftali Bennett defended his decision to let the march go ahead, arguing that it had become an annual event. “Waving the Israeli flag in the capital of Israel is perfectly acceptable,” he said on Sunday.
Israeli police repeatedly clashed with Palestinians at the Al Aqsa compound in April, during the holy month of Ramazan, with Muslims angered by the rising numbers of Jewish visitors to the mosque esplanade.
