The American founding fathers and early scholars – since the 18th century - were aware of deeply-rooted Islamic violence, terrorism, intolerance and hatred toward other Muslims, as well as non-Muslims.
Early American leaders and thinkers were endowed with deep appreciation and unique knowledge of global history, international relations, ancient cultures, ideologies and religions. They spoke and wrote candidly about global threats, including the Islamic threat.
In 1830, New York University Prof. George Bush, the great-granduncle of G.H.W. Bush,considered one of the most profound American scholars of the mid-19th century, published The Life of Mohammed. He was not concerned about political correctness, was low on delusion and top heavy on realism. His 1830 reference to the Islamic threat was consistent with the 2012 state of intra-Muslim atrocities, hate-education, tyranny, anti-US stormy Arab winter, intolerance of criticism, global Islamic terrorism in general and suicide bombing in particular.
According to Prof. Bush, ”[Mohammed] promised robes of silks, marble palaces, groves and fountains and beautiful virgins to those who fought for the faith…offering his enemies the alternative; the Koran or the sword…. It was inflamed by zeal for a religion which assured the soldier of victory now and paradise hereafter. The permanence of this religion is now apparently secured by education...in regions where freedom of thought is unknown (p. 155-6)….
“O prophet of God, I will beat out the teeth, pull out the eyes, rip open the bellies and cut off the legs of all who shall dare to oppose thee (pp. 36-37)…. [Muhammed] was cruel on principle. He did deliberately what other men do from impulse…. The ambition which tramples on the right of men to think or to live is the greatest of human crimes…. The sword is the key of heaven and hell. A drop of blood shed in the cause of God is of more avail than two months of fast and prayers. Whosoever falls in the battle his sins are forgiven… and the loss of his limbs shall be replaced by the wing of angels (103-4)…. Hatred of Christians and Jewsis rooted in their hearts from childhood (p. 137)….
John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist church (1703-1791) preferred clarity over ambiguity when describing Islam: "Ever since the religion of Islam appeared in the world, the espousers of it... have been as wolves and tigers to all other nations, rending and tearing all that fell into their merciless paws…. Such was, and is at this day, the rage, the fury, the revenge, of these destroyers of human kind".
Thomas Jefferson studied the Koran, to become more knowledgeable about a chief enemy - the Moslem Barbary pirates, who plundered American ships, enslaving Americans, demanding protection money and ransom for their release. During 1784-1789, while Jefferson (the 3rd US President) was ambassador to France and John Adams (the 2nd US President) was ambassador to England, they met with the Barbary Ambassador to London, in an attempt to stop the anti-US piracy. Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman told them: “[Piracy] was founded on the laws of the Prophet, as it was written in the Koran; that all nations which had not acknowledged [Islam’s] authority were sinners; that it was [the Moslem’s] right and duty to make war upon them and enslave them as prisoners, and that every Muslim slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”
John Quincy Adams, sixth US President (1825-1829), wrote after his presidency and before his election to Congress in 1830: “The precept of the Koran is perpetual war against all who deny that Mahomet is the prophet of God. The vanquished may purchase their lives, by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet, may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. [Mohamet] declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind…. Between [Christianity and Islam], thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant…." (Blunt, 29:274).
In 1916, Teddy Roosevelt observed: "Wherever the Mohammedans have had a complete sway, wherever the Christians have been unable to resist them by the sword, Christianity has ultimately disappeared" (ditto, Judaism, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism ...)."
In 2012, US policy-makers should benefit from the experience of early US leaders and thinkers – whose observations have been vindicated by the recent turmoil in Arab lands- avoiding the lethal trap of political correctness in their assessment of the Islamic threat.
It is time to revisit the Pershing solution.
Stay classy, Muslims..
Nice. Great information
I think the Hiroshima Solution might be more effective. Scales easier, too. . .
Pershing’s solution works because they won’t get into paradise when executed, because the bullets are soaked in pigs blood.
Plus, no atonement? Geez, no way to say you are sorry and believe that someone is on the other side listening?
No wonder they are so dang cranky.
Following is from an e-mail I received. I have not checked it’s correctness.
I NEVER KNEW THIS ABOUT JAPAN
They are indeed a very evolved race. Have you ever read in the newspaper that a political leader or a prime minister from an Islamic nation has visited Japan?
Have you ever come across news that the King of Iran or a Saudi Arabia prince has visited Japan? Japan, a Country keeping Islam at bay. Japan has put strict restrictions on Islam and ALL Muslims.
The reasons are:
a) Japan is the only nation that does not give citizenship to Muslims.
b) In Japan permanent residency is not given to Muslims.
c) There is a strong ban on the propagation of Islam in Japan .
d) In the University of Japan, Arabic or any Islamic language is not taught.
e) One cannot import Koran published in Arabic language.
f) According to data published by Japanese government, !
it has given temporary residency to only 2 lakhs
Muslims, who need to follow the Japanese Law of the Land. These Muslims should speak Japanese and carry their
religious rituals in their homes.
g) Japan is the only country in the world that has a negligible number of embassies of Islamic countries.
h) Japanese people are not attracted to Islam at all.
i) Muslims residing in Japan are the employees of foreign companies.
j) Even today visas are not granted to Muslim doctors, engineers or managers sent by foreign companies.
k) In the majority of companies, it is stated in their regulations that no Muslims should apply for a job.
l) The Japanese government is of the opinion that Muslims are fundamentalist and even in the era of globalization, they are not willing to
change their Muslim laws.
m) Muslims cannot even think about getting a rented house in Japan .
n) If anyone comes to know that his neighbor is a Muslim then the whole neighbourhood stays alert.
o) No one can start an Islamic cell or Arabic Madarsa in Japan
p) There is no personal (Sharia) law in Japan.
q) If a Japanese woman marries a Muslim then she is considered an outcast forever.
r) According to Mr. Komico Yagi (Head of Department, Tokyo University )
There is a mind frame in Japan that Islam is a very narrow minded religion and one should stay away from it.
s) Freelance journalist Mohammed Juber toured many Islamic countries after 9/11 including Japan . He found that the Japanese were confident that extremists could do no harm in Japan .
The right sign for the times, thank you.
I’m well aware of Pershing’s Solution. You can upgrade it by rendering several tons of pig fat into liquid, and then spraying it at altitude over your target area, days or weeks before. Let it absorb and sink in. THEN apply the Hiroshima solution. . .
Islam is a threat to us all. Islam has genocided countless populations and we are on their list. Ask the Christians Armenians in 1915 who were genocided. Many Muslims countries are 99% Muslims like Saudi Arabia, Iran etc. This is what Islam does, ethnic cleansing of non Islamics. and here we have this Pos Obama and the U.S. media and democrats defending this genocidal cult.
It would be good to spread the word about this article, or the info in it. Having Professor George Bush of 1830 could be a hook to get more people interested in it.
It's a religion of peace
thank you both!
(sure hope the info about Japan is true!)
Obama says Islam/Muslims were a part of the Nation from the start. Perhaps as is quite usual with his double talking he was referring to the fact that the ‘part’ was the antipathy of the actual attitude towards Muslims.
And yet, the Republican Party has nominated a man who thinks this:
“I didn’t refer to Islam at all, or to any other religion for that matter. I spoke about three major threats America faces on a long term basis. Jihadism is one of them, and that is not Islam. If you want my views on Islam, it’s quite straightforward. Islam is one of the world’s great religions and the great majority of people in Islam want peace for themselves and peace with their maker. They want to raise families and have a bright future. There is, however, a movement in the world known as jihadism. They call themselves jihadists and I use the same term. And this jihadist movement is intent on causing the collapse of moderate Muslim states and the assassination of moderate Muslim leaders. It is also intent on causing collapse of other nations in the world. It’s by no means a branch of Islam. It is instead an entirely different entity. In no way do I suggest it is a part of Islam.”
