Saudi Arabia: Spencer's The Truth About Muhammad an attempt "to discredit the Prophet and tarnish his image"
During Monday night's GOP debate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said the use of Sharia law would never happen in American courts.

Time travelling is actually possible: If you want to know how the culture was one and a half millennium ago on the Arab peninsular, you just need to visit an Islamic country - or a Muslim parallel society in your own country for that matter.

A problem with which American administrations have grappled since the days of Thomas Jefferson’s presidency has been Arabs and the Middle East. The Marine anthem mentions "the shores of Tripoli” because, in 1801, Jefferson sent them to there to put down the Barbary pirates.
