Since Columbus' voyage in 1492, the Europeans began to explore and colonize the Americas. During the next century, the Spanish (and the Portuguese?) extracted a lot of wealth from the Americas, beginning the expansion of territories, and power, resulting in Empire that became the dominant naval and economic powers at the expense of Islamic powers, such as the Ottoman Empire.
How did policymakers in the Muslim world react to this development? Especially in the parts that interacted with the Europeans, such as the Ottoman Empire, Morocco, or the Barbary States? Did this come into their attention, and did they plan some response to stop or disrupt it?
