The founders were on the ball, to bad it was dropped.
George Washington was serving as president in 1784, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin meet to discuss islamic ‘pirateship’ attacks on American merchant ships.
March 1785, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams went to London to negotiate with Tripoli’s envoy, Ambassador Sidi Haji to end the attacks on the American merchant ships.
One month later the Ambassador wrote Jefferson the following:
It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise.
Immediately prior to Jefferson’s inauguration in 1801, Congress passed naval legislation that, among other things, provided for six frigates that ‘shall be officered and manned as the President of the United States may direct.
In 1802, Jefferson requested authority to deal with the pirates, Congress passed “An act for the Protection of Commerce and seamen of the United States against the Tripolitan cruisers.
In 1802, Thomas Jefferson said there was only way to deal with people who’s only goal is to kill you.
in 2009, Barack Obama, during his Cairo speech, said: “I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”
For once obama, is correct.
Thomas Jefferson said: we must fight islam and we must win.
>The founders were on the ball, too bad it was dropped.<
The ball was dropped intentionally.
We were an exceptional nation at one time, but it did not sit well with the rest of the world. Nobody likes an oddball.
And who is the rest of the world? The UN and the One World Governemnt movement to which our last four presidents have been members of. Even today, the UN is trying to meddle with our internal affairs and not even one congresscritter objects publicly.
