History is often like a Worm Hole and folds back on itself so beware of the Islamic Threat...

  • Christianity became legitimate in the early 300s. As a result European Christians went on pilgrimages to the Holy Land aka Palestine to visit the holy sites associated with the life of our Lord. These pilgrimages were arduous and exercises of piety as travel to the Holy Land was difficult, time-consuming, expensive, and dangerous. Some pilgrimages took years to complete.

    Additionally many Christians also went to Syria, Palestine, and Egypt in order to live ascetic lives. It is important to note that this was the age in which Christian monasticism blossomed, and multitudes of Pious Christians were motivated to go to the Holy Land and Egypt in order to lead lives consecrated to God by asceticism which was not Muslim back then for Islam had not come into being. The hardships of the journey for both pilgrims and ascetics was possible because the journey to Palestine went through Christian lands!

    "In A.D. 612, the Arabian Muhammad, son of Abdallah, said he was receiving a prophetic call from God through the angel Gabriel. At first, he made few converts and was driven from his native Mecca in 622. He found refuge in the city of Medina, where his gained followers. It was by a military campaign and the sword that Muhammad conquered Pagan, Jewish, and Christian tribes seized control of his native Mecca, as well as all of Arabia.
    He died in 632 but the this religion propagated by it founders Violent tactics continued.

    Following his death, Muhammad’s successors—the caliphs—continued an aggressive campaign of expansion. In less than a century they had seized control,among other lands, of Syria, Palestine, and North Africa. Though today we are used to thinking of these lands as Muslim, at the time they were Christian. It has been said that the expanding Muslim empire consumed half of Christian civilization. Even Europe itself was threatened. Muslims seized control of southern Spain, invaded France, and were threatening to invade Rome itself when their advance was defeated by Charles Martel at the battle of Poitiers in 73

    After Muslim expansion in Western Europe had been checked for the moment, their attention for a time turned elsewhere, and within two more centuries they had conquered Persia (Iran), Afghanistan, Pakistan, and parts of India. They also later advanced against Christian nations, conquering the Byzantine Empire in 1453 and encroaching as far as Vienna, Austria in 1683.

The modern day expansion of Islam has a vicious, radical and malignant strain of the Ummah made up of Al Qaeda's Osama & Egyptian Ayman Al-Zawahiri, Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and the Jemaah Islamiyah movement in South East Asia lead by its spiritual leader Abu Bakar Bashir, an Indonesian of Yemeni descent, is marching again and on the Rise!

Yes I know this history because I am an American of Spanish decent but there were others who are much much smarter, more prolific and indeed true genius progeny of the Hispano-American axis from where I write from. In addition to Bernardo de Galves who was an Ally of George Washington there is George (Jorge Agustín Nicolás Ruiz de) Santayana who famously said:

  • "Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. In the first stage of life the mind is frivolous and easily distracted, it misses progress by failing in consecutiveness and persistence. This is the condition of children and barbarians, in which instinct has learned nothing from experience."
and he also less famously said:

We must educate the American Public of this history or history will repeat itself and these "Modern Day" Prophets will conquer us too.....
