After looking into it some, I can't help but think that almost each and every one was a flat out lie.

    The compass? Arches and spirals?...there was one on some type of medicine...It's funny because Obama is such a great orator, and even to me when he speaks it sounds great, but then I go back and listen...and listen...and read the transcripts...and the majority is usually all rubbish.

    Oh, and his comparison of the holocaust to Palestinian's search for land...WTF? - I'm getting really sick of the phrase "...but on the other hand..."
    Actually the Muslim world was the beginning of some great achievements. Some of which were involved in education, math and science (astronomy being a focus) etc... In terms of arches that is nonsensical, classical Rome was a major force in using a variety of arches in their architecture.

    I did not see the whole thing, and missed the part you mentioned at the end. That is a sad comparison to make.

    He accredited Algebra to the Muslims. Doesn't Algebra trace back to the Babylonians? I know they weren't Muslims.

    The compass I believe traces back to native South Americans.

    I'm not doubting that they've achieved certain things, just not everything Obama said.

    Algebra itself is much earlier, however there we advancements made during the Muslim golden age in mathematics. He is overexaggerating.
