I think they might still have troubles in CEA and will find a stronger Ethiopia a little more of a roadblock. I'm not sure how much of a can of worms this would be vis a vis African history. I'm also not so sure about the "less impressive" clause. The Moslem conquests in the West are the same as here, and then some. They háve to take over Iberia so we can have a Reconquista and subsequent action in the Americas. They have to get up into France so Charles Martel (or whatever his name was) could bump-start French history. They had to get into SE Europe so that Balkans history unfolds right. The adoption of the "Emirate of Cornwall" alt-history is but a dollop of creme on a bowl of sweet orange sherbet, but relies on "rather impressive" gains in the West. Quite frankly, I think the Moslems will be busy enough there and in trying (without much luck) to gain a foothold in SE Asia! Elemtilas 21:59, 15 January 2006 (PST)

Kingdom of Ethiopia at the time was smaller than Ethiopia is now (here I am talking about IB). In the real world, muslim gains on the eastern coast of Africa are as well impressive, as places such as Comoros, near Madagascar, are muslim; indeed however, South Africa was not reached in the real world. Anyways, I agree with what you have said, I just wrote this article as a temporary space about those events (muslim conquests) that are frequently mentioned in other articles of IB as they takes part in history of many countries, but it was not decided yet exactly on where muslims went and what they have taken and what are differences from muslim conquests in the real world. This article, however, is far from being perfect. As for the conquests in East Africa by the way, I wrote an article about Somalia which tries to explain them more (as the conquests of Somali Caliphate rather than Arab one).
