| NOT so great britain's Guardian claims Arabic in Renaissance painting shows “deep connection between Europe and Islam”

Jihad Watch : The writing in the halos is actually not Arabic, but Pseudo-Kufic:

And that is his objective, and that of the Guardian: to pull the wool
over the eyes of Britons and Europeans, so that they become more
accepting of the mass Muslim migrant influx. Sure, there is jihad, and
there are Muslim rape gangs, and skyrocketing crime rates due to
migrants, but look! There was a “deep connection between Europe and
Islam” during the Renaissance. Islam has always been “a variant of the

Islam has indeed, at least since the early eighth century, been “a
variant of the European experience” — the variant that included violence
against non-Muslims, and their subjugation as dhimmis under the rule of
Sharia. I show this in immense detail in my book The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS. Don’t be lulled into complacency by the historical lies of Kenan Malik and the Guardian: click here to preorder The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS.
