What does President Bush have to do with the outrageous claim in the title of my commentary? This picture was taken on September 17, 2001 during the President’s visit to the Islamic Center of Washington, DC. It was during this period immediately after 9/11 that he called Islam “a religion of peace“.

My focus is not on the President, however but on the man second from right. His name is Nihad Awad and he is the subject of this post. He is the Executive Director and Founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). It was in his December 27, 2012 interview with a Saudi TV network Iqra TV) that he claimed Muslims beat Columbus to America. The video interview is here.

And here are some quotes from the 12-27-12 interview on Saudi TV.

Nihad Awad: In my view, Islam and the US are twins, linked by common values.

It is extremely important to know how Islam began in the US. There are historical accounts according to which the Muslims preceded Columbus, who is said to have discovered the US. Some documents and accounts indicate that Muslim seafarers were the first to reach the US.

After 9/11, we saw great interest among the American public in becoming better acquainted with Islam by studying and reading about it. We found that very few books on Islam were available in the public libraries, which are frequented by many Americans, and that most of these books were misleading or anti-Islamic. Therefore, we decided to publish several books on Islam, written by Muslims and non-Muslims. We decided to send them free-of-charge to the American public libraries.

There are 16,200 public libraries in the US, serving 300 million Americans. We managed to provide this collection, free-of-charge, to half of these libraries. (translated by MEMRI TV).

I just thought you would like to know. If several books means at least three, then we are talking about a minimum of 25,000 books! Beware of CAIR!

How tragic the timing, as we completely strip our schools and hotels of the Bible, Islam is ready with pagan propaganda to pervert the minds of gullible Americans. May Yehovah, God of Israel have mercy on our land. Our God is a father whose Son, Yeshua ben Yehovah, is our Savior. Jesus is the Son of God, the Messiah of all who believe in Him and the Father’s Promise.

For unto us a Child is born, ​​unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder.  And His name will be called ​​Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, ​​Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. ​​Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. ​​The zeal of Yehovah of hosts will perform this. Isaiah 9:6-7

(As is my custom, I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!)
