But also in their dialect language, which is full of terminologies that have an Arabic origin, in addition to the phenotypic characteristics of many Sicilians. I am from Bergamo

Cool.

The Emirate of Sicily was an emirate on the island of Sicily which existed from 831 to 1091. Its capital was Palermo. Muslim Moors, who first conquered in 652, seized control of the entire island from the Byzantine Empire in a prolonged series of conflicts from 827 to 902.

You can see it in the architecture.
what is "cool" about it? The Moorish invasion of Sicily created the BLACK HAND-----the origin of the
CULTURE OF THE MAFIA ----which still infects the world with EVIL Architecture? There is no "arab
architecture" There is Egyptian and Greek Architecture. The worst thing that happened to Italy was the Moorish invasion

There is Arab architecture. You can see the influence of Muslim Spain even today in the architecture of Spain and Portugal.

The Black Hand was founded in 1901.

"arab architecture" ? "muslim spain" ? The only
"arab aspect" of both the architecture and SPAIN is the fact that imperialist arab invaders, INVADED, ---raped, pillaged and murdered. Arab architecture is
in arabia-----(mostly Saudi Arabia-----TENTS) The "black hand" was a criminal organization that has its
roots in MOORISH invasion (read that rape, pillage and murder) of Sicily) and the resistance thereof. Suggesting that it is arab would be about the same as suggesting that British culture was invented by THE VIKINGS

Baghdad-----CO-OPTED the genius of the Greeks (and also the Persians---read that ZOROASTRIANS) I should add that my very own husband was born in "arabia"----the land of the ILLITERATES

Has your husband never heard of the Kamal for determining latitude? It dates to the 9th century.. There are many common issues in navigating the desert and the ocean.. Remember the Arabs were merchant traders.. trading with Egypt Mesopotamia, the Levant, East Africa and the Indus Valley long before Islam.

Is your husband a Saudi or an expat?
