At a time when Catholic youth are taught that Islam means peace, pilgrimage and prayer, and Catholic adults are under the impression that Muslims are a misunderstood minority who only want to share their values and their baba ghanoush, it's refreshing to occasionally make contact with reality.
I mean "refreshing" here in the sense that a dive into chilly waters is refreshing. I just finished reading Raymond Ibrahim's Sword and Scimitar, a history of fourteen centuries of war between Islam and the West, and the effect is similar to the shocked-awake effect of a plunge into cold water.
Not that I didn't have a general acquaintance with the history, but one tends to forget the details, and the devil, as they say, is in the details. Ibrahim supplies plenty of those. Moreover, the details are so shocking that one is inclined to think that the devil was intimately involved in the centuries-long jihad against Christendom.
Indeed, that's exactly what many Christians of those times did think. Muhammad and Islam were frequently referred to by popes and peasants alike as "demonic," "diabolic," and "satanic." For their part, Muslims had a particular hatred of Christians. They considered the Christian belief in Christ's divinity to be a great sin against Allah. Wherever Muslim armies went they desecrated and destroyed churches, broke crosses and statues, and made a particular point of violating nuns and torturing priests and monks.
In short, the violent conflicts between Muslims and Christians were primarily religious wars, not, as many modern historians suggest, wars for resources or national interests. Some historians, it seems, are less interested in past events than in finding ways to fit those events into contemporary narratives.

More like 1300 years.
WUT? When did that start? Oh.......
Islam is not at war with Christianity. Islam is at war with all those who do not follow their version of Islam.
Christians, Jews, Buddhists, atheists, etc are all targets of opportunity if they refuse to convert.
If the author’s title were to be believed, why is the Vatican not a pile of rubble at the moment? Why are the great cathedrals around the world not destroyed?
Islam may take the time to destroy or cover up those structures later, but for now, they want the blood of all unbelievers to be flowing like a river in the street to honor their ‘prophet.’
Fourteen hundred years would be more accurate.
I think it has been at war with nonbelievers for at least 1,400 years. They have had 2 major invasions of Europe in the past. We are in the middle of the third. I think the leftists will lose this one on purpose out of their self loathing. 0bama tried to get enough into the USA to do that task here. Let us not let the leftists flush us down the toilet.

Islam has been fighting with every major religion... Judaism, Hinduism, christianity,... and other sects of Islam.
Islam is the bully religion.
You beat me to it. Nice well stated post.

Thanks for the link. I like Bettany Hughes.
The highest-paid scam artist, ever.
And, these days, the guy who said “Islam is a Religion of Peace” is buddy-buddy with that guy Obama and never said a bad word about him in public for 8 years.
...Islam has been at war with Christianity for a thousand years...
And there’s no end in sight.
