You speak of disgruntled and lemmings and politics. My analysis of Islam is not motivated by hate and the lemmings take your views. You have been poisoned by political correctness so score one for the USSR. I could speak to that statement, but let's just say it worked. I will try to explain my reasons for believing the things I do about our mortal enemy that is Islam and the people who practice it and I will anticipate a political correct response if there is one at all. I will add that I am a retired US Army Officer with 33 years and 7 months service on active duty and reserve service all of it working fulltime for DA. I am an Iraq war vet and have served in Korea and Central America. I want to try to give you a little historical perspective on why I hold the views I have and articulate without regard for people with tissue paper feelings.
In 629 AD Muhammad gathered 10,000 converted Muslims marched on and conquered Mecca and about 3 years later the majority of the Arabian peninsula had converted to Islam and they've had global conquest on their minds ever since. Let me start with some history. This is a little snippet from the Catholic Education Research Center: With enormous energy, the warriors of Islam struck out against the Christians shortly after Mohammed's death. They were extremely successful. Palestine, Syria, and Egypt — once the most heavily Christian areas in the world — quickly succumbed. By the eighth century, Muslim armies had conquered all of Christian North Africa and Spain. In the eleventh century, the Seljuk Turks conquered Asia Minor (modern Turkey), which had been Christian since the time of St. Paul. The old Roman Empire, known to modern historians as the Byzantine Empire, was reduced to little more than Greece. In desperation, the emperor in Constantinople sent word to the Christians of western Europe asking them to aid their brothers and sisters in the East.
That is what gave birth to the Crusades. They were not the brainchild of an ambitious pope or rapacious knights but a response to more than four centuries of conquests in which Muslims had already captured two-thirds of the old Christian world. At some point, Christianity as a faith and a culture had to defend itself or be subsumed by Islam. The Crusades were that defense.
Unfortunately they didn't save Constantinople now Istanbul or the Armenians subject to genocide by the Turkish Muslims. This is nothing new and not that long ago. There is widely available reference material about all this in my Research Room on this website.
The problem with many in the west and Libertarians is that they look upon Islam as a religion comparable to Christianity et al. Islam is not a religion and must never be confused with or treated under our constitution as a religion. The Jihadists running Islam are using our own 1st Amendment against us due to this characterization. Islam is a tyrannical political system complete with laws, banking regulations, mandatory dress codes, punishments, taxes, and a trilogy of playbooks The Q'uran, Hadiths and Sunnah. They also have special laws for you and I, google Dhimmitude or Dimmah.
In case you missed it they have restarted their conquests on the west. Germany, France, every Scandinavian country have been invaded by hordes of Syrians, but that's just today. Did you know about Rotherham ?
Let me try to bring this home. In 2007 the federal government brought a criminal case against seven key leaders of The Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF). During the course of the investigation Official Muslim Brotherhood Memorandums were discovered that were written in 1994. The most damning document when translated from Arabic is entitled Muslim Brotherhood's Strategic Goal to Take Over North America I hope you read it and you will see they have made some real progress on their stated goals. There are two additional documents associated with this case and additional resources here .
I know people who hold emotional opinions on important issues like this the emotion is too powerful to allow objective analysis but I had to try. God Bless.
