About a year or two ago, I saw a book by Steven Barnes, the title escapes me, but it's about an Arab discovery, and ultimately, settlement, of America. The POD is when Socrates escapes to Egypt, rather than take the hemlock, and helps the Egyptians. It continues with Carthage defeating Rome in the Punic Wars. The country that the Arabs found in the American South is called Belialstan. WI Arabs settled America?
