    Istanbul (AFP) - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Saturday that the Americas were discovered by Muslims in the 12th century, nearly three centuries before Christopher Columbus set foot there.

    "Contacts between Latin America and Islam date back to the 12th century. Muslims discovered America in 1178, not Christopher Columbus," the conservative president said in a televised speech during an Istanbul summit of Muslim leaders from Latin America.

    "Muslim sailors arrived in America from 1178. Columbus mentioned the existence of a mosque on a hill on the Cuban coast," Erdogan said.

    Erdogan said that Ankara was even prepared to build a mosque at the site mentioned by the Genoese explorer.

    "I would like to talk about it to my Cuban brothers. A mosque would go perfectly on the hill today," the Turkish leader said.

    History books say that Columbus set foot on the American continent in 1492 as he was seeking a new maritime route to India.

    A tiny minority of Muslim scholars have recently suggested a prior Muslim presence in the Americas, although no pre-Columbian ruin of an Islamic structure has ever been found.

    In a controversial article published in 1996, historian Youssef Mroueh refers to a diary entry from Columbus that mentions a mosque in Cuba. But the passage is widely understood to be a metaphorical reference to the shape of the landscape.

    We need this guy in the Artie chair. He's funny.

    How come Jesus didn't know about The Americas? I thought he could fly anywhere in just a matter of minutes. Oh wait. That was Superman

    I guess the Lone Ranger movies would look a lot different than they do today. The Trail of Tears would seem like a Thanksgiving meal compared to what the Muslims would of done to them.

    I agree Columbus is a bunch of bullshit, but the Vikings were here long before that.

    It doesn't matter. The Native Americans were here before any European or Muslim set foot anywhere on the continent.

    I heard that Erdogan also believes that Muslims went to the Moon in 1173 and that the crew of the Apollo 17 mission in 1972 encountered several rock-throwing goons from a nearby mosque shouting Allahu Akbar. They hightailed it out of there and that's why the US never went back to the Moon after that.

    I think the author just takes pleasure in knowing that our stomachs will turn if we know Muslims were here first.

    If Columbus found evidence of bombings, misery, and chaos, then I would believe the assertion that Muslims "discovered" America. Shoot, even Columbus though he was in India.

    Islam is intent on taking over the planet. Can you imagine what the world would be like if all of it resembled the Middle East?
