History and Travesty (Like Ebony and Ivory)

Roger Du Pasquier: Most Europeans have not fully appreciated the importance of the influence which they have received from the Islamic civilization, or the nature of their borrowings from it in the past; and there are some people who go so far as to disregard totally all that pertains to it. The reason is that the history which they have been taught makes a travesty of the facts, and appears in many respects to have been deliberately distorted. It is only with reserve that they deign to give any consideration to Islamic culture, being more used to denigrating it at every opportunity. (Roger Du Pasquier's Unveiling Islam)
