CAIR chief claims Muslims discovered America first

Truth was never a big part of the Islamic narrative.

From DailyCaller:

Muslims discovered the Americas long before Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492, the head of a D.C.-based jihad-linked Islamic lobbying group told a Saudi TV station Dec. 27.

“There are historical accounts according to which the Muslims preceded Columbus, who is said to have discovered the U.S.,” claimed Nihad Awad, the co-founder of the Council on American Islamic Relations.

“Some documents and accounts indicate that Muslim seafarers were the first to reach the U.S., [so] the bottom line is that Islam played a part in the establishment and development of the U.S.,” Awad told the Saudi interviewer, in an interview in a New York studio.

CAIR did not respond to The Daily Caller’s request for an explanation of Awad’s comments, which were recorded by the Middle East…

  1. What is the purpose? Can’t just be to make themselves look accomplished. In Islamic belief any land that was under Muslim control is Islamic forever. Israel, Spain etc… are on the list to be taken back as non-Muslims have no right to rule and govern over Muslim land. It seems by claiming Muslims discovered America first they lay claim to the American land. It is a way to make Americans be the ones who took over Muslim land, America. So it is the duty of all Muslims to retake Muslim land (America) from the Americans. This false claim that Muslims discovered America first is much more insidious than it first seems.

    “.,.There is now a widespread feeling among Muslims that the territories they lost during the Spanish “Reconquista” still belong to them. That they have a right to return and establish their rule there. This is based on the Islamic idea that terrorities such as “Palestine” and Southern Spain which were once occupied by Muslims must remain under Muslim domination forever….”

  2. I agree that this is partially to try and establish a claim to North and South America, the Moslems want to rule the world.

    There is also an ego problem, almost all all of their claims of scientific discoveries were stolen from India, they are desperate to prove that Moslems have contributed something besides religious war to the world.

  3. Oh sure, didn’t Yasser Arafascist invent the space shuttle while fasting in a summer ramadan in Mecca (so that his brains would be in top form), just to see his blueprints be stolen by the evil Joooooooz with the help of jinns, who are also Jooooz according to your average imam?

  4. It is crap, but Americans should keep an eye out for this to be mainstreamed into your schools and general public.

    As for claiming g the scientific discoveries of others as their own, unfortunately too many non-Muslims promote that too. Also art. In the Louvre thanks to a Saudi donation there is a huge Islamic world wing. But it is noted in passing that many of the works are secular not Islamic, but that does not stop them from including it under the Islamic world banner merely because the regions were under Islamic control. That is like saying South American art is part of the Chrisian world as it was under Christian rule. Or even putting the works of art in the Middle East under Christian world when it controlled the region.
