* World Trade Center was built as a homage to Mecca and Islam!
* This is the book that changed Norway"s main encyclopedia, Store Norske. The article about "racism", written by the professor Sigurd Skirbekk, was in 2002 (on the webpage, in 2006 in the paper edition) replaced by a new and more balanced definition by Torgeir Skorgen. This happened after a hefty media debate with the publishing house Kunnskapsforlaget, caused by the 50 pages long critique of the Skirbekk-definition in this book.
