     Hi zeca., I was actually interested on the works of dr,  George Saliba  w.r.t  Islam ., I was under the impression that you may have already watched some his interviews and his books/publications..

    George Saliba (Arabic: جورج صليبا) is a Lebanese-American Professor of Arabic and Islamic Science at the Department of Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies, Columbia University, New York, USA, where he has been since 1979. Saliba is currently the founding director of the Farouk Jabre Center for Arabic & Islamic Science & Philosophy and the Jabre-Khwarizmi Chair in the History Department.

    Quote
    Saliba was one of the professors named in the 2004 Columbia Unbecoming controversy as allegedly being intimidating or unfair to students with pro-Israel views. A student of his, Lindsay Shrier, claimed that he told her that those with green eyes (like herself) are not racial "Semites", and have no valid national claim to Middle Eastern lands.[7] Saliba claims that this is a fabrication.[8] Saliba rejected the accusation and published a rebuttal in Columbia Spectator on 3 November 2004 to that effect.[8][7]

    good man but some times he is careless on  what he says... but I must say here his books/publications gave wonderful contribution in educating the reader on Islam/Islamic rulers and development of science and technology of that time   .

    His work is really interesting and one must give a careful consideration to his thoughts., But I still think  with all his tremendous work on the contribution of medieval Arab folks to Sciences  ( so-called Islamic Golden Age  ~786  to 1258) .,  he actually seems to be missing  the basic point in his work ., Off course I may be wrong ..

    well let me read through his 50 page pdf publication on Arabic science in 16th century Europe(Guillaume Postel(1510-1581) and Arabic astronomy )

    I did not know anything about that guy Guillaume Postel(1510-1581)
