I dunno.. while "Christian" Europe languished in the Dark Ages, the Moslem Arabs were the most advanced civilization on earth, and in some sense they preserved "Western" civilization while Europe was lost.

Algebra, chemistry, etc, they all come from the Arabs..

Israel's success is 1000% the result of U.S. taxpayer support, and, incidentally, the subjugation and technological repression of Arab countries is also 1000% the result of U.S. taxpayer support.. I don't think you can make a call regarding technological sophisication of Islamd/Judaism just by looking at Israel/Middle EAst.. it's not exactly a fair, "blind" experiment..
