"With regard to the characteristics of the Islamic Arab rule in Sicily and its sequels, we can note that from the Western and Italian viewpoint, this provision appears to be positive and beneficial.“

"The Islamic source of many industries and crafts is obvious in many words used to this day, most particularly the appellation of mill with its Arabic name: Ma'assara. The Muslim presence also affected agriculture considerably. The introduction of new techniques and crops by the Muslims allowed the local economies to thrive, and some of such products, citrus fruit in particular, constitute up till now the foundations of the Sicilian economy."
