The war started in the 7th century and lasted through the 17th century.I would contend it never stopped but historically the facts below are correct.This is why I choke when I hear someone say we will defeat or contain these Islamic terrorists in a few years or even 30 years as recently stated by Leon Panetta.If the latest batch of murders, beheadings, and killing of innocent Christians has shocked you, maybe you should read this compilation of historical facts about the hatred of Muslims.WE, THE STUPIDThis is all factually (and historically) correct – and verifiable:In 732 AD the Muslim Army which was moving on Paris was defeated and turned back at Tours, France, by Charles Martell. Charles’s victory is widely believed to have stopped the northward advance of Umayyad forces from the Iberian peninsula, and to have preserved Christianity in Europe during a period when Muslim rule was overrunning the remains of the old Roman and Persian EmpiresIn 1571 AD the Muslim Army/ Navy was defeated by the Italians and Austrians as they tried to cross the Mediterranean to attack southern Europe in the Battle of Lapanto. To half of Christendom, this event encouraged hope for the downfall of “the Turk“, the Satan-like personification of the Ottoman Empire, who was regarded as the “Sempiternal Enemy of the Christian”. Indeed, the Empire lost all but 30 of its ships and as many as 20,000 men, and some Western historians have held it to be the most decisive naval battle anywhere on the globe since the Battle of Actium of 31 BC.In 1683 AD the Turkish Muslim Army, attacking Eastern Europe, was finally defeated in the Battle of Vienna by German and Polish Christian Armies. The battle was fought by the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nations in league with the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (Holy League) against the invading Muslim Ottoman Empire and chiefdoms of the Ottoman Empire, and took place at Kahlenberg Mountain near Vienna. The battle marked the first time Poland and the Holy Roman Empire had cooperated militarily against the Turks, and it is often seen as a turning point in history, after which “the Ottoman Turks ceased to be a menace to the Christian world”. In the ensuing war that lasted until 1698, the Turks lost almost all of Hungary to the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold.Finally, WWI ended the hegemony of the Ottomans; soundly defeated, their long arm in Europe and Asia has been severed. The Armistice of Mudros was signed on 31 October 1918, ending the Ottoman participation in World War I. The fact to remember today is that Turkey is a member of NATO.

…Muslim armies have been on the warpath for 1,400 years and half of the politicians don’t even know it.If these battles had not been won we might be speaking Arabic and Christianity could be non-existent; Judaism certainly would be… And let us not forget that Hitler was an admirer of Islam and that the Mufti of Jerusalem was Hitler’s guest in Berlin and raised Bosnian Muslim SS Divisions: the 13th and 21st Waffen SS Divisions whokilled Jews, Russians, Gypsies, and any other “subhumans”.Reflecting:A lot of Canadian & Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine that America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves.Pause a moment, reflect back.These events are actual events from history. They really happened! Do you remember?1. In 1968, Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed by a Muslim male.2. In 1972 at the Munich Olympics, athletes were kidnapped and massacred by Muslim males.3. In 1972 a Pan Am 747 was hijacked and eventually diverted to Cairo where a fuse was lit on final approach. It was blown up shortly after landing by Muslim males.4. In 1973 a Pan Am 707 was destroyed in Rome,with 33 people killed, when it was attacked with grenades by Muslim males.5. In 1979, the US embassy in Iran was taken over by Muslim males.6. During the 1980’s a number of Americans were kidnapped in Lebanon by Muslim males.7. In 1983, the US Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by Muslim males.8. In 1985, the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked and a 70 year old American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard in his wheelchair by Muslim males.9. In 1985, TWA flight 847 was hijacked at Athens,and a US Navy diver trying to rescue passengers was murdered by Muslim males.10. In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by Muslim males.11. In 1993, the World Trade Center was bombed the first time by Muslim males.12. In 1998, the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by Muslim males.13. On 9/11/01, four airliners were hijacked; two were used as missiles to take down the World Trade Centers and of the remaining two, one crashed into the US Pentagon and the other was diverted and crashed by the passengers. Thousands of people were killed by Muslim males.14. In 2002, the United States fought a war in Afghanistan against Muslim males.15. In 2002, reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and beheaded by—you guessed it was a Muslim male.
(Plus two other American journalists were just beheaded)16. In 2013, Boston Marathon Bombing 4 Innocent people including a child killed, 264 injured by Muslim males. In 2014 Canada was attacked in Québec and Ottawa… No, I really don’t see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?So, to ensure we Canadian & Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people. So, ask yourself “Just how stupid are we???”Absolutely No Profiling!They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President’s security detail, 85-year old, Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males, alone lest they be guilty of profiling.Ask yourself “Just how stupid are we?”Have the Canadian & American people completely lost their minds or just their Power of Reason???Each opportunity that you have to send this to a friend or media outlet…
Belgian has become the hotbed of violent Jihadists. Of course this is no surprise, the Belgian’s mindset is to be nice to everyone, repudiate and exorcise past discrimination.
This has led to Belgium filling up with Mohammad who struck with a vengeance today wrecking havoc across the city. A revenge attack due to the capture of the Paris mastermind. The airport and metro were today’s targets, dozens dead, more than a hundred injured. The city has been shut down; airports closed, travel restricted.
On the back of capturing the Paris mastermind, the Jihadist struck in revenge. They want the West to know that no country, no state, no city, no airport, no train station is safe from their long arm of terrorism.
And they EU invites more Muslims into their cities. When will they ever learn? Islam and Christianity don’t mix.
Islamic extremists in Belgium have publicly threatened to kill the mayor of the Belgian city of Antwerp, Bart De Wever, if he does not convert to Islam, local media reported Monday. Brussels is predicted to become a Muslim majority city within 10 – 15 years.
Western Civilization is incompatible with Islam; this is a fact. Recent killings in Paris as well as the arrival of hundreds of thousands of mostly Muslim refugees in Europe have drawn renewed attention to the continent’s Muslim population. In many European countries, including France, Belgium, Germany, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands, concerns about growing Muslim communities have led to calls for restrictions on immigration. But just how large is Europe’s Muslim population, and how fast is it growing?
In the city of Brussels district of Molenbeek, the Muslim Brotherhood thrives, Salafists rule the roost, unemployment over 30% is a recruiting ground for suicide bombers. “It’s a really dangerous cocktail of poverty, and a wide ranging architecture of radical Islamic organization…These neighborhoods have people who never even went to the Brussels city center. They are attached to chat rooms and Facebook, in contact with some of the most radical (groups). With progressive liberals holding out hope that the Muslims will integrate culturally with local populations, facts prove otherwise. One only has to look at Turkey, once the center of Eastern Orthodoxy where Constantinople held sway, now a desolate place for Christians who account for .2% of the 80 million.
It is a sad day for Christians and those of us in the West who savior our liberty, freedom and justice.
Obama cemented his Islamic credentials yesterday by visiting a mosque. America knows how important it is to recognize that our founding fathers were actually converted Muslims; like Obama, hiding their real beliefs in the Shroud of Christ. As Obama said, let us quote here, “Islam has always been apart of America.” For sure Obama knows this for he read the tea leaves in 1773 at the start of the American Revolution.
“Islam has always been part of America,” he said, detailing the beginnings of the religion among African slaves brought to America. He also pointed out that Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Virginia statute for religious freedom that the “Mohammedan” should have his faith protected in the United States. (READ EXCERPTS FROM THE ARTICLE BELOW TO SEE WHERE OBAMA TOOK THE “MOHAMMEDAN” OUT OF CONTEXT) This is another deceit implying that Muslims has anything to do with America. Obama does not mention that Black Slaves were forced to convert by the Ottomans or die. The guy is delusional.
Obama forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates who captured ,killed, kidnapped and murdered Christians in the sixteenth century and beyond. Their barbarism is still alive today where Imams preach hate during their daily sermons. We are not looking at a religion here, we are looking at a political agenda.
In 1786, Jefferson and John Adams met with Tripoli’s ambassador to Great Britain. They asked this ‘diplomat’ by what right his nation attacked American ships and enslaved her citizens and why the Muslims held such hostility toward this new nation, with which neither Tripoli nor any of the other Barbary Coast nations had any previous contact. The answer was quite revealing. Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja (the ambassador) replied that Islam:
“Was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Qur’an, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”
From Leviticus, “the stranger who resides with you … as one of your citizens.” It goes on to offer a chilling account of the anti-Islamic polemics popular among Protestant reformers in Europe—and by extension, among the early settlers in America. Spellberg cites German Protestant woodcuts from the sixteenth century depicting “Luther’s vision of Antichrist as a beast with two heads—one a mitered pope and the other a turbaned Ottoman Sultan.” In Luther’s vision, “Muslim souls were already forfeit, condemned to hell for all eternity.” Ironically, long before Luther, Catholics themselves had often dismissed Islam “as the summit of all heresy.” Luther, along with many earlier Catholic theologians, dismissed Islam’s holy book as nothing more than a repetition of the Bible and a form of “blasphemy.”
READ CAREFULLY –Thomas Jefferson’s Qur’an: Islam and the Founders by Denise A. Spellberg (Knopf)
In the smear campaign before the election for the presidency of the United States, one candidate was accused by his opponents of being a closet Muslim. Some Christians “viewed all Muslims as agents of religious error and a foreign threat.” The United States faced a hostage crisis, as many Americans were taken hostage by Muslim powers and freed only after a ransom was paid. In one country alone, “more than one hundred Americans had been captured and imprisoned.” Accounts of these captivities, even forced conversions, were often bestselling books. Piracy off the coasts of North Africa was a major problem for American cargo ships. A “social Christian,” hoping to preserve “a purely Protestant Christian America,” was worried that aliens might take over the reins of power in the country and opined that “the few … Jews, Mahomedans, Atheists or Deists among us” must, in the name of prudence and justice, be excluded “fromour publick offices.”
The time was not the 2000s but the 1790s, and the presidential candidate was Thomas Jefferson, who was, in Denise Spellberg’s words, “the first in the history of American politics to suffer the false charge of being a Muslim, an accusation considered the ultimate Protestant slur in the eighteenth century.” And it was not Captain Phillips who was taken hostage by Somali pirates. Much of Spellberg’s book is an account of those troubled times, and the remarkable efforts by a colorful cast of characters—many of the Founding Fathers, activists, clergymen, and politicians—to create a constitution that would, at least in theory, allow anyone who swore allegiance to it to become not just a citizen of the United States but even its president.
Their efforts were particularly remarkable “given the dominance and popularity” of many contemporary ideas, books, and plays that were critical of Islam. The Ottoman Turks, still a serious challenge to Europe, were invariably thought to be the only Muslims in the world, and the Ottoman sultan was often depicted next to the Catholic pope as the essence of heresy. And yet, in words borrowed from John Locke, one of the philosophical architects of liberal democracy, Jefferson insisted on a constitution wherein “neither pagan nor Mahamedan nor Jew ought to be excluded from the civil rights of the Commonwealth because of his religion.” (It would take about a hundred and fifty years before the rights of full citizenship would be afforded to women and Jefferson’s words could be rephrased as “his or her” religion.)
Such extremism isn’t limited to out-of-the-way mosques where radical clerics operate in the shadows. It is occurring in mainstream and leading mosques world-wide, including at one of the most important religious institutions in Islam, the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.
Consider a Jan. 16 sermon at Al Aqsa by Sheikh Abu Taqi Al-Din Al-Dari, a Palestinian cleric who called for jihad against the West and Europe, and for the burgeoning Islamic State to “conquer Rome, Washington and Paris.”
Despite Al Aqsa’s importance to Islam—it is considered the religion’s holiest site outside Saudi Arabia—few Westerners are aware of the content of the sermons, lectures and lessons offered there. Many of these sermons are posted on the mosque’s two official YouTube channels and have been translated from the Arabic by my organization, the Middle East Media Research Institute.
What we have found at Al Aqsa is a steady stream of calls for jihad and martyrdom, venomous attacks on Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims, and praise for al Qaeda, Islamic State, or ISIS, and other jihadist groups.
Calls for the destruction of the U.S. and the West, including promises that Islam will take over the world, are other common themes. On July 24 last year, Sheikh Ahmad Al-Dweik—a frequent lecturer at the mosque and Palestinian cleric, like the other religious leaders quoted here—said: “The caliphate will come to be, and the nuclear bomb will be produced,” adding that this future Islamic caliphate—will “fight the U.S. and will bring it down” and “eliminate the West in its entirety.”
On July 6, 2015, Sheikh Muhammad Abed, known as “ Abu Abdallah,” declared that from “the land of the Prophet’s nocturnal journey”—a reference to Jerusalem—“armies will set out to conquer Rome, to conquer Constantinople,” and then he added to the list “Washington and London.”
In an Oct. 27 address at Al Aqsa, Sheikh Khaled Al-Maghrabi called for the annihilation of the Jews all over the world, providing justification by quoting the well-known hadith (sayings of the Prophet Muhammad) of the stone and the tree: “Oh Muslim there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.” Earlier at the mosque, on May 29, Sheikh Al-Maghrabi explained why Jews were killed in the Holocaust. “On Passover,” he said, the Jews “would knead the dough for these matzos with children’s blood. When this was discovered, the Israelites were expelled across Europe . . . It got to the point where they were burned in Germany.”
Such anti-Semitism is familiar at Al Aqsa. In another sermon there, on Nov. 28, 2014, cleric Omar Abu Sara called the Jews—to whom he said “every single vile trait has been attributed”—the “most evil creatures to have walked this Earth.” He added that “it was the Jews whom Allah turned into apes and pigs.”
If incendiary sermons such as those at Al Aqsa were being delivered in any Western city, authorities would not tolerate them. Over the past year in Europe, several sheikhs have been prosecuted or expelled for similarly extremist rhetoric. In Germany, an imam from Denmark who spoke in 2014 at the Al Nur mosque in Berlin faced criminal charges after calling for the killing of Jews, saying: “Count them and kill them to the very last one.” Two months ago, he was fined €1,300 ($1,420). Italian, Spanish and Danish authorities have handled similar matters involving hateful sermons.
At Al Aqsa, support is also strong for jihadist groups. On June 26 last summer, Palestinian cleric Issam Amira praised an ISIS-inspired attack in the small French town of Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, southeast of Lyon, after an Islamist radical decapitated his employer and then crashed his vehicle, causing an explosion. “The Muslims have given rise to ISIS, and to vehicular attackers,” the cleric said. “They are courageous.” He added his wish that “Allah soon reward the Islamic nation with a second rightly guided caliphate.” Destroying “the Jewish entity”—Israel—could then be achieved, he said.
Al Qaeda also comes in for praise at Al Aqsa. The day Osama bin Laden was killed, May 2, 2011, an unnamed preacher eulogized him. In an Al Aqsa video uploaded to YouTube, the speaker vowed that despite bin Laden’s death, the “nation of one billion Muslims will give birth to hundreds of millions” of bin Ladens. Then came a threat to President Obama: “You personally gave the order to kill Muslims. . . . The day will soon come when you find yourself hanging from the gallows.”
Our research at Memri indicates that the hateful rhetoric on display at Al Aqsa is hardly unique to that institution—similar incitements can be found at prominent mosques and Islamic institutes throughout the world. Our video archive at memritv.org contains thousands of examples.
A year ago in Washington, D.C., at the opening of the Summit on Countering Violent Extremism, President Obama urged Muslims to “push back” against extremism in mosques. He will have an opportunity to restate that message on Wednesday in Baltimore. Acknowledging the Islamist threat, and those who support it, must be part of any realistic attempt at countering violent extremism.

Obama doesn’t address any of the above because he is one of them. Not a Christian, but a Muslim. Sermons like this are common in every Mosque.
The 18-year-old freshman who stabbed four people on the University of California Merced campus Wednesday was shot dead after he lunged at a police officer with his hunting knife, a fellow student said.
Meghan Christopherson, a 19-year-old sophomore, tells the Fresno Bee that an officer was chasing 18-year-old Faisal Mohammad when he suddenly stopped to face the officer.
She says Mohammad began walking toward the officer. The officer backed up, repeatedly telling Mohammad to get on the ground. She says the officer kept asking Mohammad if he wanted to get shot.
When Mohammad lunged, a frightened Christopherson ran away. She heard two shots and turned to see the officer standing over Mohammad’s body.
She says it all took less than a couple of minutes.
Don’t expect President Obama to offer his condolence to the victims. He most likely will invite Mohammad’s parents to the White House and offer them his sympathy because their piece of dirt son shot dead by the police.

Texas was the scene of an attempted murder of security personnel at a cartoon festival featuring depictions of the prophet. Security was tight. Gert Wilders, the Dutch politician, who has warned the world about Islamization was also there. Wilders has called for a ban on the Muslim holy book, the Koran, and has been quoted as saying, “I don’t hate Muslims, I hate Islam.”
Pam Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative hosted the event, offering $1o,000 for the best cartoon featuring Mohammad. Extra security was on hand. Two terrorist tried to disrupt the proceedings, but met their master before they executing their scheme. The wanna bees took aim while existing their vehicle shooting a security officer, but the wounds were non life threatening. Garland Texas police officers promptly entered the fray killing the amoebas on the spot. Free speech lives.
