Do you think Wikipedia is an Islamic Propaganda Website?

in response to reader comment: 5 Muslim inventions for every 3 American -- DREAMING

You said "Why do you think that most claimed muslim discoveries happen to be in areas recently conquered by Muslims? Spain, Constantinople, India, these are where most Muslim "Inventions" originated".

For your knowledge, I have extracted the following information from none other site than Wikipedia.

Please focus on the bold and underlined text.

Islamic astronomy comprises the astronomical developments made in the Islamic world, particularly during the Islamic Golden Age (8th–15th centuries),[1] and mostly written in the Arabic language. These developments mostly took place in the Middle East, Central Asia, Al-Andalus, and North Africa, and later in the Far East and India. It closely parallels the genesis of other Islamic sciences in its assimilation of foreign material and the amalgamation of the disparate elements of that material to create a science with Islamic characteristics.

This refutes your claim that "most claimed muslim discoveries happen to be in areas recently conquered by Muslims"

Here is the link to the site:

I hope you understand that Wikipedia is not any "Islamic propaganda website" that you accuse me of cruising.

Similar to these there are many sites which give detailed information on this subject and none of them are "Islamic propaganda websites".
