1) According to Cheik Anta Diop, “no Arab army ever crossed the Sahara in an attempt to conquer Africa, except for the Moroccan war of the sixteenth century. During the period of our study, from the third to the seventeenth centuries, not one conquest was ever launched by way of the Nile: That of the Sudan (modern country), accompanied with the help of England, came only in the nineteenth century. Nor was there ever an Arab conquest of? Mozambique or any other East African country.”

See Cheik Anta Diop, Pre-colonial Black Africa, page 101

2) “The Arab conquests (in black Africa) dear to sociologists are necessary to their theories but did not exist in reality. To this day no reliable historical documents substantiate such theories.”

See Cheik Anta Diop, Pre-colonial Black Africa, page 102

3) “However, in 1544, Sultan Muhammad al-Mahdi, the founder of Sa’did power in Morocco, demanded the ruler of Songhay, askia Ishaq I, to give him the mines. Askia Ishaq naturally refused to do it, and a war broke out. The Moroccans sent an army to occupy Taghaza, but the army was destroyed in the desert. As response to this, a Songhay army consisting of Tuaregs, attacked northwards and sacked the southern parts of Morocco, forcing Sultan Muhammad to flee from Marrakesh. Similarly, the rulers of Bornu, lying around Lake Chad, were able to expand their political dominance deep into Fezzan, occupying the oases until the 16th century.”
