Erdogan claimed Muslims discovered America in front of Latin American Muslims. He would then criticize the President of the US and France for supporting the Kurds of Kobane. He then said he would like to build a replica of that mosque the Muslim captain allegedly spotted on a mount of Cuba, a country where Russia place nuclear missles in order to threaten all Americans – North and South! I consider this te launch of a Muslim Cold War, and a Propaganda War, against the United States and its interests. That Erdogen employs the Muslim religion in the political affairs of the Western Hemisphere, may constitute a Terrorist Threat.
Below are posts that I sent to the Rose of Paris.
Muslims discovered the Americas more than three centuries before Christopher Columbus, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said.
He made the claim during a conference of Latin American Muslim leaders in Istanbul, pointing to a diary entry in which Columbus mentioned a mosque on a hill in Cuba.
Mr Erdogan also said “Muslim sailors arrived in America in 1178”.
He said he was willing to build a mosque at the site Columbus identified.
The Turkish president – whose AK Party is rooted in political Islam – gave no further evidence to back up his theory, instead stating: “Contacts between Latin America and Islam date back to the 12th Century.”
Columbus is widely believed to have discovered the Americas in 1492, while trying to find a new route to India.
But in a disputed article published in 1996, historian Youssef Mroueh said Columbus’ entry was proof that Muslims had reached the Americas first and that “the religion of Islam was widespread”.
However many scholars believe the reference is metaphorical, describing an aspect of the mountain that resembled part of a mosque.
No Islamic structures have been found in America that pre-date Columbus.
Mr Erdogan said he thought “a mosque would go perfectly on the hill today” and that he would like to discuss building this with Cuba.
The first people to reach the Americas came from Asia. They are believed to have crossed the Bering Strait about 15,000 years ago.
The first European visitors to North America are widely thought to have been Norse explorers, about 500 years before Columbus.
Turkey’s president Erdogan still not happy about US led international intervention to save the besieged Kurdish town of Kobane from ISIS. “I warned US president Obama and asked him not to send military aid to the Kurds” he said, while speaking at the Latin American Muslim Leaders summit organized by his government in Istanbul.
“I told him that these weapons will end in the hands of ‘terrorists’ and this is not acceptable”. Kobane is for me and my country strategic not for America and others”. I told the same to French president Hollande as well. They act for Kobane but not for Aleppo which is much more important than Kobane”. I know they have evil plans regarding our region” Erdogan said.
Erdogan further claimed that the US led coalition does not have an interest in countries without natural resources. “This is intereting. Because they are without moral principles, they are not just an they are merciless”. On the contrary to them, we are bound by our principles and we defend the peace. If they have evil plans Allah will also have his counter plans” We show our goodwill and Allah will open all the doors for his believers. We will not lose our hopes and will not accept the roles given by others” he added.
Have I made myself perfectly clear?
