Pre-Columbian Islam?


Did you know that many years before Columbus sailed the ocean blue, early Muslim explorers were marrying into the Algonquin tribe? The Algonquins themselves seem not to have been aware of it, but apparently the users of The Arab World Studies Notebook, by Audrey Shabbas, have been learning just that sort of thing. Copies of the Notebook have reportedly been distributed to some 10,000 teachers by the Middle East Policy Council. Future copies, reports Martin Kramer, will lack the Algonquin revelations.
