Islamic Art And Architecture Expert Debunks Claims About Muslim Vikings

The New York Times, BBC, The Guardian, and a host of other liberal media outlets have been pushing the story that there were Muslim Vikings, a claim based on a piece of cloth. The claim is baseless, says a professor of Islamic art and architecture.

    Typical of yer mooslims. Always trying to kid us they were here first!

    “Truthiness” will be the new trendy word.

    Journalists are incomprehensibly stupid.

      Times change. I guess. Though if one threw in a picture of muslim men 1000 years ago versus muslim men now, in that case, not much would appear to have changed, I don’t suppose.

    While I applaud this professor for debunking this lie. I was disappointed to read her ignorance a paragraph or so later.
    “The professor also stated that the only reason the story went viral was
    because of contemporary politics. The story, she says, struck a nerve
    because it could serve as a rebuttal to white supremacists who long for
    the glory days of the crusades.”
    The so called glory days of the crusades, were in reaction to the attacks by the muslims on the Christian, and other societies of western Europe and the middle east. The only ‘glory’ was in pushing back the islamist bent on conquest and domination of the infidels. Defending ones own from hate and oppression is what society is supposed to do.

  • Why let facts get in the way of an outrageous narrative?

    The Vikings went everywhere. It is only a matter-of-course that they acquire items and leave items behind.
