Reader comment on item: Kastelorizo - Mediterranean Flashpoint?
in response to reader comment: Tyrkjaránið - An Ottoman slave-hunting raid in Iceland 1627

Submitted by the Grand Infidel of Kaffiristan (Australia), Feb 27, 2012 at 21:57

As usual Ianus researches his facts thoroughly - leaving his opponent unable to counter without resorting to more fabrication. However his point could be embellished more by referring to the widespread attacks and slave raids throughout Europe by arab muslim raiders which were geographically widely spread in the middle ages from Iceland (already covered) , to Ireland , to the eastern Mediterranean.
