  • How Muslims Did Not Invent Algebra

    Enza Ferreri Blog ^ | 2 August 2013 | Enza Ferreri
    Continuing on the theme of what Muslims did - or more likely did not do - for the world, there is a widespread misconception that they "invented algebra". Maybe this fallacy is due to the fact that "algebra" is a word of Arabic origin, but historical questions are not solved by etymological answers. Yes, the English word "algebra" derives from the Arabic. So does "sugar" (from the Arabic "sukkar") but that doesn't mean that Muslims invented sugar. The word "algebra" stems from the Arabic word "al-jabr", from the name of the treatise Book on Addition and Subtraction after the Method...

    Russia's immigration issues would be familiar to Americans: Millions of impoverished migrants have come and found low-wage jobs. Some are in Russia illegally and are exploited by their employers. And a growing number of Russians fear this influx of migrants, many of whom are Muslim, is changing the face of the country. At 3:30 on a recent morning, the train from Dushanbe, Tajikistan, pulls into Moscow after a four-day journey. The passengers hauling their bags out onto the damp, ill-lit platform are mostly men. Russian police eye the new arrivals with suspicion. Every day, trains and planes arrive from Uzbekistan,...

    When young girls are sold into marriage, as 38,000 are every day, they can expect a life with no education and few opportunities, little public autonomy outside of their adult husband’s control and an increased risk of death from pregnancy or childbirth, which are the number one killer of girls age 15 to 18 in the developing world. One in seven girls born in the developing world is married by age 15, usually sold by her family.

    Walid Shoebat, Muslim apostate and former al Qaeda member explains Muruna–the tactic which allows Muslims to violate the strict prohibitions of Sharia law in order to deceive the infidel enemy. “Muruna,” says Shoebat, “is literally accomplished by permitting behavior normally so eschewed by Sharia that Westerners logically assume a more moderate version of Islam when such prohibitions are suddenly permitted. Westerners’ eyes are, in fact, deceiving them.” Apply Shoebat’s words to the actions of Huma Abedin and make up your own mind.

Leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood, which is at the vanguard of the street protests against Morsi’s ouster, claim the US supported the coup. Those opposed to the Brotherhood claim Washington has been and still is supporting the Islamists. An example of the vitriol in the country can be seen in a new video clip featuring a song by...

    Why are we on high alert today, after al Qaeda was ‘beaten’? Because US inaction and massive jailbreaks have freed thousands of terrorists We may be winning the War on Terrorists, but increasingly we’re losing the terrorists we’ve captured on the battlefield, dooming us to fight them all over again. The metric the Obama adminstration uses to measure success in the war is the number of al Qaeda operatives and other high-value terrorists killed or captured. “Al Qaeda is on the path to defeat,” the president said last fall, “and Osama bin Laden is dead.” Obama also said the upper...

    Aleppo rebel religious committee forbids ‘colonial’ croissants A sharia committee in a rebel-held area of Aleppo issued a fatwa deeming croissants ‘haram’ (forbidden in Islamic law) because of their “colonial” significance, pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat reported on Tuesday. Croissants’ crescent shape celebrates European victory over Muslims, according to the fatwa (religious ruling). Rebel-controlled areas of the Syrian city have experienced several strict fatwas recently from Islamic sharia committees. Such edicts are uncommon in Aleppo’s society, which usually adheres to moderate Islamic teachings, Asharq al-Awsat reported. A sharia committee in the city issued a fatwa on Facebook prohibiting “Muslim women...

The second, which he offered as a Muslim, had to do with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the conflicts among the nations of the regions in general: "I pray you will be able to see the things that unite you and realize that they're stronger and much more dominant than the differences between you."</p>
