for some light relief: a Muslim cleric claims the Sun revolves around the Earth

An official of Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Islamic Affairs.

In his little demonstration he seems oblivious to the fact that aircraft move with the atmosphere of the earth and because of friction it makes no difference whether you move with the rotation of the earth or against it.

The worrying aspect of this Muslim science is, how much of it finds its way into schools via Islamic 'literature'?
