    People state that Turkey is a secular country.

    If it were so, then why does this bloke want to build a mosque in Cuba to commemorate his concept that Muslims discovered the Americans first. Would it not be sufficient to build a monument, with all scintillating effect?

    Kemal Attaturk must be rolling in his grave.

    That apart, there should be some historical proof to the effect that Muslims were the first to be there in the Americas.

    And which Muslim from which country?

    According to such people Earth was created in a day's time and human's are children of Adam and Eve.....now argue with them and they will tell you the scientific proof is mentioned in Quran and Hadiths! What an oxymoron when the Catholic Church has accepted theory of evolution and big bang! Who can argue with the semi-literate mullahs?

    I have no doubt Indians, Chinese, North European, Persians and Arabs (even before Islam, be it Mesopotamians, Egyptians, Levanites etc.) were exploring the world but can't say they discovered Americas. What I know for sure and due to archaeological evidence, Americas especially North America (coastal for sure) was indeed first colonized by Viking tribes for a while before the indigenous tribes wiped out the colonists!

    niether europeans nor muslims discovered america. There were tens of millions of people of many different cultures, inuit, carib, mayan, cree, ojibwe etc that lived for thousands of years continuously before any genocidal cruel western european or sand european set foot here.
