  1. Hello journey family,
    i really like your journeys. the job that you do is bigger than any of the president of the countries does. it is more important than even president Obama’s mission. i am investigating new drug therapeutic systems, but as most of the researcher we do not how it will be beneficial for human health. i mean your research is more important and noteworthy than any other type of research in the world, according to me. i really appreciate your research. i think it should be more grants for encouraging that kind of researches.
    in the mean time i would like to say something about an article from a Turkish culture journal. ” Prof. Barry Fell has stated the exploring of America was firstly has done by Northern African American muslim community. and there were some muslim schools in Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico and Indiana according to architectural investigation found in the 7 th century. i think in the mean time the original explorer of american should be investigated as well. thus american history may be written again according to these results. i am really admiring to all of your staff and research. may God protect all of you.

  2. This is great news! As an American Muslim, I’m a big fan of your project and look forward to all the results that come from it. By the way, I just caught the last bit of Br. Akbar Ahmed’s interview on NPR about the current issues in Pakistan. Anyways, great job (I’ve been catching your videos on Muxlim).
