Happy Politically Incorrect Columbus Day. Did you know there’s a link between Islamic conquest and Columbus’ discovery of the New World? In 711 an Islamic force invaded the Iberian peninsula, defeated the Visigoths and pushed on to France. In France, they were turned back by Charles Martel at the Battle of Tours in 732. But the Islamic Moors ruled in present day Spain for some 700 years. Later during the Spanish “Reconquista,” they were pushed into southern Spain in what they called Al Andalusia and established the Umayyad Caliphate consisting of cities such as Toledo, Granada, Seville, and Cordoba. The last Moorish city of Granada fell in 1492 under Spanish rulers, Ferdinand I and Isabella I, of Aragon and Castille. Meanwhile, some 40 years earlier, in 1453, the Ottoman Muslim Turks, conquered the Christian city of Constantinople, renaming it Istanbul and instituting Islamic rule. The all-important trade route east for Europe had been cut. It was Columbus who went to Ferdinand and Isabella seeking sponsorship for an expedition to find a new way to the east, as he believed the world was circular and could be circumnavigated by sea. Columbus found favor with Isabella and the rest, well, is history. The founding of the New World can thus be directly attributed as a response to Islamic conquest. Lastly, never forget the Islamic concept that wherever Islam has ruled (Dar-al-Islam), but been overcome (Dar-al-Harb), it must rule again.

  1. his is the old history no longer taught in our government run school systems. we should forward thisto all our local school board members for an addition/correction when teaching the history of Columbus. Also, because so much time has past for accurate history teachings it would do good to forward to all college campus news paper editors as well.

  2. you can add in that Italy was not a country yet and Venice and Genoa had been at odds with each other for years. Venice made a deal with the Islamic warlords to keep Genoa out and hence the original plan by Columbus. When Genoa negotiated a deal with the Same warlords Columbus’s plan was Scuttled. Spain however was never going to get the same deal and Portugal held the around Africa route. Columbus as a boy traveled to Denmark and had seen a Viking map showing the New World. He never forgot that map and the rest is history.

  3. according to the Muslim adherents, Columbus was lead to the Americas by a Muslim that was a part of his crew.
