From the Halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli, we fight our countrys battles, in the air, on land, and sea.- Official Hymn of the U.S. Marine Corps. Have you ever wondered what is Tripoli doing in our Marines official hymn? On this memorial day, let us remember those who gave their lives that we might be free from muslim terror!
Ambassador Thomas Jefferson had a wake up call the day he met with muslim leaders. Thomas Jefferson asked why are muslims attacking American ships when we are doing nothing to incite any form of violence. To his shock, he recorded the following words spoken by the muslim ambassador Abd Al-Rahman: it was written in the Quran, that all Nations who should not have acknowledged the authority of mohammad were sinners, that it was the right and duty of every muslim to make war upon nonmuslims they could find and to make Slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Muslim who should be slain in battle was believed to go to Paradise.
Remember there was no Israel nation at this point and there was no American military bases in Saudi Arabia to blame these muslim terrorist attacks. All America wanted to do was to pass by the open seas and engage in fair trade. Even liberal PBS McNeil/Lehrer reported one day on Americas first war by President Thomas Jefferson against the muslim terrorists.

I knew about the USS Philadelphia being sunk by Mulims off tripoli and that jefferson had to send people to get it back but I had no idea muslims had boarded our ships , took people and beheaded them
Thank you for posting that.
Makes it hard for idiots to say it is all Bush’s fault for going into Iraq or for being a friend of Israel
yes, history forgotten is future to be repeated.
Jefferson’s War: America’s First War on Terror 1801-1805 [Hardcover]
SEMPER FI bump...
The past is not dead. In fact, it is not even the past.
Unfortunately, this article is inaccurate. John Paul Jones never fought in our Barbary Wars. And his abortive attempts to capture Constantinople were in the service of Russia, not of America.
Stephen Decatur was the hero of the Barbary Wars:
The article, however, is quite accurate as to the unchanging purpose of islam—world conquest. islam’s enmity toward America has NOTHING to do with Israel or America’s Saudi bases.
And I do hope that someday Constantinople, Kosovo, and Serbian Bosnia will be free, and that America will be on the side of the Orthodox Christians rather than the muslims!

The article is just bad history, fairytales. The truth is more interesting. Read the book, the “The Pirate Coast”, by Richard Zaks.
This forgotten part of American history could make a great subject matter for some patriotic tshirts. Anyone have any artistic talent out there? How about a silkscreening business?
The whole 1400 year old bloody history of islam:
“ISLAMIC JIHAD: A LEGACY OF FORCED CONVERSION, IMPERIALISM AND SLAVERY” by M A KHAN
Available on Amazon and Kindle.
My dream is that someday we will use our drones and GPS to locate and map all of the mosques in the islamic world and then will be take out the leadership of that devil cult all over the world. Cut off the head of the snake and the snake will die.
