Skip to comments.Surreal and Suicidal: Modern Western Histories of Islam
Posted on 10/03/2013 1:17:33 PM PDT by LucianOfSamasota
Rereading some early history books concerning the centuries-long jihad on Europe, it recently occurred to me how ignorant the modern West is of its own past. The historical narrative being disseminated today bears very little resemblance to reality.
Consider some facts for a moment:
A mere decade after the birth of Islam in the 7th century, the jihad burst out of Arabia. Leaving aside all the thousands of miles of ancient lands and civilizations that were permanently conquered, today casually called the "Islamic world" -- including Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Iran, and parts of India and China -- much of Europe was also, at one time or another, conquered by the sword of Islam.

I like the author's credentials.
"Raymond Ibrahim is author of Crucified Again: Exposing Islam's New War on Christians, which deals with both history and current events. A Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center and an associate fellow at the Middle East Forum, he wrote his master's thesis on an early battle between Islam and the West under the direction of military historian Victor Davis Hanson."
The TRUTH shall make you free!!!!!
In Chrisitanity, the end will come when Christ returns, the world will be judged, and a new world rebuilt.
In islam, the only way their world gets rebuilt is when the entire world is muslim. How do they do that? Thru forced conversions or death to the infidel, nothing else. It is pure insanity to think that islamists can be reasoned with.
Free Anatolia for the Greeks!
A Crusade against the incursions of Islam is looked upon with abhorrence by the same people who are also shocked by the notion that the great nation once known as “the United States of America” should be THE major world power.
Islamic Jihadists kill non-Muslims with little regard of the opinion of the world, yet the intelligentsia of the West is stricken with remorse that they may somehow offend the sensibilities of the “Arab street” if objection is raised in relation to this wanton destructive behavior.
And not only do the Jihadists kill non-Muslims with no thought for any recrimination, they will, with scarcely any more rationalization, go ahead and kill other Muslims if those Muslims seem to be unsteady in their devotions and observance to the dictates of the Prophet (P*ss be on His Name).
When a cancer is running through the body of an entity, only radical measures (irradiation, surgery, chemotherapy, or death) remain as the possible options.
Earth has been infected and is at the mercy of this cancer Islam, and only radical remedies show much promise. Of course, the cancer MIGHT go into remission spontaneously.
Yeah, right. And Satan resumes his place in Heaven.
Here’s something weird.
The other day I got in a tiff with a gentleman in one of my professional groups, this is counterterror professionals from what seems to be the “official” US, mostly. Seems led by some geezer from the State Department.
Anyway, he insisted that islam in Europe was the beacon of freedom and enlightenment. He also insists that al Gilani, the boss of al Fuqra, is a healer and scientist.
So I didn’t immediately take to him like a brother. Resulting in a barrage of threats of suspension and/or banishment for insulting or demeaning language.
I asked the critters to drop me from their rolls posthaste. No such luck. I’m inundated with whining about the wonderfuulness of islam, the importance of civility, and more propaganda. The importance of civilzation seems to be lost.
People think I'm making it up.
I find it interesting how the truth about the spread of Islam has been falsely applied to Christianity. Why are people so much more willing to believe a lie than the truth?
-— Why are people so much more willing to believe a lie than the truth? -—
Besides The Fall, there is the fact that the truth, in this case, is very frightening.
The multicultural idea that all religions are the same, absolves the believer from having to search for, and face, uncomfortable truths.
I doubt you'd get an argument from your typical low-information voter if you said, "Mohammed. He was pretty much like Jesus."
You could throw Buddha in there as well.
Could it be...
