Researchers in Sweden have found Arabic characters woven into burial costumes from Viking boat graves. The discovery raises new questions about the influence of Islam in Scandinavia, writes journalist Tharik Hussain.
They were kept in storage for more than 100 years, dismissed as typical examples of Viking Age funeral clothes.
But a new investigation into the garments - found in 9th and 10th Century graves - has thrown up groundbreaking insights into contact between the Viking and Muslim worlds.
Patterns woven with silk and silver thread have been found to spell the words "Allah" and "Ali".
IT'S THE PERSONS NAME THAT DIED.
MORE FUCKING IDIOTS.
Scandinavia is muslim soil. Kick out the infidels. The true faithful are coming home
couldn't possibly be that there was some trade between the arabic and norse regions
>inb4 they didnt find all of the patterns and the full silk material reads "allah is a cunt"
didn't the vikings also take slaves of the people they conquered, couldn't this simply of been mudslime they made their bitch?
Sweden trying to change its' own past
yeah you only have to turn it inside out, backwards, and upside down to see it
definitely on purpose
i'm not saying it was aliens, but it was aliens.jpg
trade not loot
also that's a pretty good movie
I've read a lot about vikings and the Rus traded with them a lot.
look up "viking way pdf"
WE WUZ VIKAINGZ N SHIET
>Enlarging the patterns and looking at the reflection in a mirror revealed the word 'Allah' (God) in Arabic.
Valhalla hall of the slain, viking's paradise
>looking at the reflection in a mirror
Plus there was a story about vikings who after raiding a bit of Moorish Spain, decided to settle, and became cheese-makers after converting to Islam.

Maybe because the vikings traded with the arabs?
>The discovery raises new questions about the influence of Islam in Scandinavia
Do these morons know nothing about Norse history? They were big time traders and there is a lot of records from Arabs of their trade with the Norse. I'm sure historical illiterates will try to say this was proof of something ridiculous though.

LEARN FUCKING ENGLISH YOU NIGGER
Not really, they were used as Merc's to help the muzzies invade Spain and the Eastern Roman Empire, one of the only recorded documents about a viking burial comes from a Muslim who watched it after the leader died in battle.
There have been fucking chinese artifacts found in viking graves but they aren't saying:
WE WAZ RIKINGZ
Valhalla written in arabic would also have the same root if the Va part is missing.
Anyway, it is loot from a raid.
They use an alphabet which was using individual glyphs for individual sounds. With such a system it doesn't matter what exactly the alphabet is. Let me demonstrate it with Cyrillic:
>deliberately alter your past to make the takeover seem less alien and hostile
>we were always Muslim, we are just going back to tradition by converting
Sweden yet again outcucks everyone else.
They saw Germans actively killing themselves and erasing their history all the way back to WW1 and thought "we can do better"
>Offa of Mercia minted his own dinar with made-up arabic letters as a meme
>Varyags and Rus occasionally slapped some sandnigger slavers and took their shit
>EUROPE HAS ALWAYS BEEN ISLAMIC HAHA CHECKMATE WE WHITEY NOW OPEN THOSE BORDERS BRUV

this, it's disgusting really.

This. It's a blatant misinterpretation of what we already know. The Vikings went to the Middle-East and had contact with Arabs. There, they heard about the powerful Arab god and someone among them sewed a power-name onto his clothes (because more gods is better than fewer gods).
they also took items of value and clothing etc from people the conquered, so it simply could of been a SPOIL OF WAR
Why should we believe you? LET ME SEE YOUR DEGREE
>Not even white
> can still kind of put one and one together to realize that just because Vikings looted and got buried with gold crosses doesn't mean they were Christian
1.) "Allah" is just the Arabic word for "God" it doesn't necessarily mean Islams God. Christians from the Arabic world may also refer to Allah
2.) It couldn't have been Muslims because it is considered disrespectful to put Islam Allahs name anywhere but the Quran
Sorry for Reddit spacing this but this is just too fucking retarded
Considering Scandinavia is predominantly christian now, I'd say there's more evidence for the norse being christian than muslim. Even on this point the moslems lose out. (Not saying they were christian, just adding to the conversation)
to destroy a nation you have to:
1) destroy the mutual trust and communities
2) import a group of foreigners to the nation
3) destroy the language of the nation
4) destroy the history of the nation
>tfw the US is on stage 4
I will see the collapse of my homeland
Oppressive fact: Vikings did have a presence in the Mediterranean and did raid/trade with a bunch of Aloha Snackbars. Stolen/traded objects could have included such funeral clothes.
WOKE truth: we wuz viKANGZ n shiiiiieet
can you believe people still don't know the truth and that the earth is flat?
That can be easily related to loot & rape, but after watching news about sweden yes! destroying viking artifacts because they are offensive i wouldnt be amuzed if this "discovery" is false as muh ham mad.
WUZ THE KANGS AND QUEENS OF PROMISE
The vikings would take slaves from Britain and such to sell to the Arab world. This is common knowledge.
>Alan the viking worshiped Allah
They didn't. It's called fake news.
