The Religion of Peace

Many European countries were occupied by Muslims over the centuries (either Arabs, Moors, or Ottomans (Turks): Spain for 800 years, Portugal 600 years, Greece 500 years, Sicily 300 years, Serbia 400 years, Bulgaria 500 years, Romania 400 years, Hungary 150 years... Italy, Austria, Bosnia, Croatia, Wallachia, Albania, Moldavia, Armenia, Georgia, Poland, the Ukraine, and eastern and southern Russia - they were all battlefields where Islam conquered or was conquered in violent conflicts marked by cruelty and a fearful loss of life, spread over considerably more than a thousand years... and was only stopped in France (That Islam did not capture all of Europe and wipe out Christianity is owing in part to the Franks' Mayor of the Palace, Charles Martel, his sturdy Merovingian knights and courageous infantry. On October 10, 732AD, Charles met the Islamic invaders between Poiters and Tours in battle. The Franks stood like a wall and the Muslims eventually withdrew defeated. Their leader, Abd-ar-Rahman was killed. In their rout, the Arabs suffered heavy losses of men and equipment. Europe would remain Christian territory.)

European history has remained fixed on the Christian Crusades of the 11th to the 13th centuries, largely ignoring these Muslim attacks and invasions. When accusing the West of imperialism, muslims are obsessed with the crusades, but do not mention their own longer and more gruesome Jihad.
Their leaders, the Caliphs, Sultans, and Ayatollahs had the same powers of any dictator, including their heroes Suleiman the Magnificent and Saladin.
And they still have the same total political and religious power in most Muslim countries today: Gaddafi in Libya, the Kings in Jordan and Syria, in the Sudan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Morocco, Pakistan, Afghanistan, even in Palestine. Most of these countries have "third world" status, their rulers using their huge oil gained wealth for personal use and for furthering the cause of Islam.
Today they do not have enough resources to conquer their neighbouring countries, nor the world, which is their ultimate aim, and they use instead terrorism and suicide bombers.

However, Muslim wars are still raging worldwide:
The Muslim Palestinians have a continuing war of terrorism against Israel. In the Sudan the Muslim government of the north have already killed over one million Christians in the south. Algeria is wracked by bitter fighting between Islamic Fundamentalists and the military. Nigeria is in the midst of a civil war between Muslims and Christians. In Kenya the Islamic Party has declared Holy War on the government. Colonel Gaddafi and his Libyan army have carried out military operations into Chad, and, like Afghanistan and Iran, Libya is a base for terrorists. In Turkey (looking to join the EU) the secular Muslim government is being challenged by the militant Refah Islamic Party. War also rages between Christian Ethiopia and Muslim Eritrea. The fighting between Christian Armenians and Muslim Azerbaijans (with 35,000 casualties), after which tiny Armenia was shrunk further because of territory gained by the "breeding-with-a-vengeance" Muslim population. A war between the Christian Serbs and the Muslim Albanians could spark at any moment. Muslims in Chechnya, Daghestan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan have ignited insurrection against the pro-Russian regimes. Muslims in Indonesia are forcing Christians of all denominations to convert to Islam or have their throats cut. Thousands upon thousands of Christians have been first forcibly converted, and then sexually mutilated with knives and razor blades to make them conform to Muslim "standards". Afterwards, they are enslaved to their local Muslim chieftain. This is not some aberration of Islam, but business as usual for all but the "moderate" factions. They have a history of murder, terror, lies and brainwashing to advance their cause of global conversion and subjugation... Their Jihad!

Unfortunately, most people aren’t aware of this murderous philosophy, or they find it too monstrous to believe.

But the concept of Islam throughout the centuries has always been this:

1- Embrace Islam, become our brethren and you will have what we have.
2- If you refuse that, you will be obligated to pay tribute with humiliation (the Jizya or poll tax). Dhimmitude.
3- Or War, terrorism and suicide bombers.

This is Islam in the 21st century.

Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965)
"When I warned them (the French Government) that Britain would fight on alone whatever they did, their generals told their Prime Minister and his divided cabinet, "In three weeks England will have her neck wrung like a chicken." Some chicken! Some neck!".
(Speech to Canadian Parliament 1941)

Tony. Fantastic post, it is true historically that virtually every wear was religiously based.

This is true to the present day in fact, however we are starting to see more and more violence and war relating to oil.

there may be the tendency to look at the holders of the power and blame any friction on their ethnicity, but the underlying reason will increasingly become energy. Look at Russia and Belarus!

Really enjoy looking at yur Blog.
