I keep hearing that Islam is a religion of peace from elected officials and the big media, but I fail to see it. With the United States and Israel constantly under attack by Islamic radicals, that argument fails to hold water.
What puzzles me more is the lack of ability on the part of the State Department to draw a line between the terrorism that the United States experiences and the terrorism Israel experiences at the hand of Islamic terrorists, and realize it part and parcel of the same line of Islamic theology that has been announced for centuries.
What we fail to realize is the American and Israeli ends of this conflict are fully linked, and have been for decades, and even centuries. The Islamic attempts to conquer the world are not news that began in our lifetime.
When we examine the timeline of Islamic conquest, we can see that since its inception, Islam has been a religion of conquest, forced conversion, and death to the few who have stood against it.
This timeline illustrates this point:
632 AD- Islamic jihadists conquer Yemen 632AD- Invasion of Abyssynia ( Ethiopia) . Islamic jihadist forces repelled. 633 AD- repeated Islamic military campaigns subdue the desert tribes of Arabia(Saudi Arabia) 635 AD- Islamic armies attack and conquer Damascus(Syria) 637- Persians(Iranians)defeated at battle of Qadisiyya by Islamic forces 637 AD-fall of Iraq 638 AD- Jerusalem falls 639 AD- Syria falls to Islamic forces 640 AD- Egypt falls into ISlamic hands, Coptic Church destroyed 688 AD- Fall of Carthage, 688 AD Islamic followers build the Dome of the Rock on the former site of the Temple of Solomon, the holiest site in Judaism and Christianity. 702 AD- Berbers in Africa captured adn converted 705-708 AD- Occupation of North Africa 711-713 AD- Capture of Spain and Portugal by Arab expansionists 715-717 AD- Afghanistan,central Asia, and the northern limit of the Caspian Sea and much of Northern India captured by Arab forces. 718 AD- Islamic forces attack France 725 AD- Islamic armies institute a seige of Toulouse, raid Burgundy and Rhone. 732 AD- Bordeaux comes under seige, and Islamic armies advance to Poitiers, where they are soundly defeated by Charles Martel.
750 AD to circa 11th Century- Period of Islamic stagnation that ends with the crusades. The crusades once again provoke the Islamic forces to conquest.
11th Century AD- Islamic forces penetrate Africa south of the Sahara 12-14 AD- islamic occupation of northern India 14-16th Centuries AD- Islamic forces conquer Indonesia 15th Century AD- Constantinople falls. 1683 AD- Battle of Vienna, Austria. Deciusive loss for Islam 1804- Islamic Forces conquer Nigeria 20th Century- Britain conqers and partitions the majority of the Middle East in the wake of WWI. 1948- Islamic self rule is re-initiated in former British colonies, as well as the founding of the Nation of Israel 1979-Present- Modern Islamic revival, and the beginnings of the War on Terror. Soviet invasion of Afghanistan begins the Islamic Muhjadeen uprising. Ayatollah Khomeini overthrows the Shah of Iran, institutes Islamic law in Iran 1982-84 AD- Attacks on US forces In Beirut, Israeli Invasion of Lebanon to stop Islamic attacks 1980's- Hostage kidnappings in Lebanon 1990's - large scale terrorist attacks against American and Israeli targets by Islamic terrorists, Persian Gulf war 2000-USS Cole attacks 2001- World trade Center attacks 2001- Afghan War 2003- Iraqi War
The Modern Islamic Revival
When we Americans think of Ayatollah Khomeini, we often think of him as an old dead man falling out of a casket in Iran on an old television clip. We seldom realize he mapped the course of the current War on Terrorism as far back as the 1940's.
Outside of our caricature of him as a naive, overwrought, emotional fanatic with stone age ideas, we seldom realize he was one of the most astute Islamic scholars of his time, and possessed a razor sharp intellect. His teachings reflect the mentality of the modern Islamic revival.
This is a direct quote:
" In order to achieve the victory of Islam in the world, we need to provoke repeated crises, restored value to the idea of death and martyrdom.If Iran has to vanish, that is not important. The important thing is to engulf the world in crises. Those who are called to export the revolution will lose their unhealthy desire for comfort and will attain the maturity needed to fulfill their mission. The road to Jerusalem goes through Kerbala( in Iraq) "
Ayatollah Khomeini, 1984
Ayatollah Khomeini was going into Islamic schools, Universities, and theological seminaries teaching this point of view, as well as the five point agenda below, as far back as 1948:
Stage 1) Iran must become an Islamic Theocratic state Stage 2) Iraq must become an Islamic Theocratic state Stage 3) Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Egypt, have to become Islamic Theocratic states. Stage 4) Jerusalem must be re-taken and the Jewish people destroyed Stage 5) The other nations of the world must be conquered and subjected to Theocratic islamic rule.
If we look at the overview, the three goals of Islam are:
1) Annexation of Jerusalem, and destruction of the jewish people. 2) Destruction of Chrisianity and all other faiths 3) Conquest of all nations worldwide.
To most muslims, the failure to achieve these objectives means the failure of Islam, and conversely, the failure of Allah. This is an unimaginable blasphemy to them.

Islam, if practiced completely as taught, is not compatible with and cannot coexist with western beliefs. Here in the USA, I believe in the concept of free practice of religion, but might be willing to make an exception for Islam. As Islam grows in America, so too will conflict.
Islam imposes a threat to the whole world ... which is far worse than deforestation, nuclear destruction or AIDS. It is an insidious, devilish disease creeping into the veins of the world. Every individual must realize the destructive and evil nature of this religion, for it eats away at the very foundation of humanity which is ...
No need for an exception. Simply recognize islam as a terrorist organization rather than a religion
