    Its a a good source for casual reading if you want to find something to buy a book on or if you want the broad outlines of a topic. But using it in a discussion reveals your shallowness to people who actually study the topic.
    Meh. Wiki is Coles Notes for debate.

    If MM, to pick recent example wants to believe that the spice trade moved by camel rather than dhow- wiki suffices.....

    • I think they should. If the U.S is an ambassador to some in the middle east when it comes to that specific topic. Why not do the same thing too here. At the very least, they should give the 40 acres and that mule

        Why should people who never kept slaves pay reparations to people who were never slaves?

            You might want to start actually studying history for a change, and stop using Wiki, no longer an acceptable reference for much of anything. Note particularly the strategic location of Acre, bitterly fought over during the Crusades.

            Or you can continue to sound like Ocasio-Cortez.
