What is the history of Islam?
How did it spread?
Did you know . . .
In 1793, Muslim Barbary pirates captured the U.S. cargo ship Polly.
The ship was plundered and the crew was imprisoned.
The Muslim captain justified their brutal treatment of the prisoners with these words:
"for your history and superstition in believing in a man who was crucified by the Jews and disregarding the true doctrine of God's last and greatest prophet, Mohammed."
This course is based on William J. Federer's best selling book entitled:
What Every American Needs to Know about the Qur'an: A History of Islam & the United States
The book is available at the St. Joseph Radio Bookstore:
