Re: Cair/islamic propaganda

Reader comment on item: CAIR Attacks the Foreign Policy Research Institute

Sir, I do not know if CAIR has anything to do with the following: I was looking on the internet for some historical islamic maps and found myself on the University of Pennsylvania site. I was pleased to see a comprehensive list, fro the beginnings of islam up to the present. Except. All the important maps showing islamic expansion had been removed, although the titles were still there. There were only maps showing the Crusader areas of the Middle East and more recent maps of Israel, of about 1920, when it was an Ottoman possession. I then went to the Oriental Society of the University of Chicago and found the same maps removed. Eventually I found the maps at Harvard. But I wonder for how much longer?
