As Morgan showed in Lost History, issued in 2007, how the modern world owes to the unremembered Arab Muslim thinkers, he highlights the radically developed theories of mathematicians, astronomers, biologists, chemists, doctors and others. Thousand years ago, thinkers predicted, unexpectedly, the 21st century thought in areas such as natural selection of species, creation of artificial life, emerging theories of time and space, psychotherapy, theories of human consciousness and the fusion of art with high mathematics and modern space-time theory.
The author chronicles and analyzes these rapid developments in early Islamic science and thought. He then questions how these intellectual breakthroughs have gone so far outside the familiar frame of modern intellectual freedom, innovation and modernism. How are the frameworks of Western and Islamic scientific thought intertwined? What are the lessons learned from early Islamic fiction that can be applied to modern science and discovery?
The enlightened eyes of a visionary Egyptian journalist surveyed one of Earth’s most enormous spaces from the west of the great Sahara, where Mauritania and Morocco are located, passing through Algeria, Mali, Chad, Niger, Libya, Egypt and Sudan, then quickly looking over Somalia, where he observed the triangle of wickedness: the making of terrorism, weapons’ trade and drug dealing that are run by security agencies of super powerful countries and ruling houses to brainwash young Muslims, especially young Arab Muslims, to exploit them in dismantling the Arab world under the guise of jihad and the enactment of God’s law.
Indeed, they abuse the inadequacy of the Arab ruling regimes in catering for the basic necessary needs of the poor and disadvantaged millions and youths in the Arab world at large and the largely underexplored African Arab desert.
The great journalist, Ayman Al Sisi, presents this vision with a strategic level of awareness of the nation’s crisis, not just Egypt’s.

Concepts of democracy and human rights remain relative and unrealized, even at the heart of the Western world, which claims its loyalty to such concepts.
This is the central theme of “Heidelberg’s American Girl”, which describes how a platonic love story of a young Arab envoy in Germany and an American Girl comes to an end just because she is the daughter of a U.S. Army General, while he is an Arab.
She is “daddy’s daughter” such was her mother’s description, warning both her sisters not to disclose everything to her, or else she would reveal it to their father. She is not only her father’s daughter, but you could also say that she adores him and his lifestyle- she follows his footsteps in every way – even her tone of voice and intonation resembles very much her father, the late president Mohamed Anwar El Sadat. She is ‘Ruqaya”, the eldest daughter of President Sadat, who decided to open her box of memories with a father whom she never stops mentioning his name and deeds, with tireless revelation of her obsessive assertions that the assassination that claimed his life on the October victory celebration, was a conspiracy beyond the Islamist boundaries. As such, the author’s memories are intertwined with the events she had lived through, to produce this must-read piece of work, as she is “daddy’s daughter”.
