UI – Part 612 – Christians – Never Forget Islamic Aggression and Extirpations
Congress recently passed (10-29-2016) a declaration recognizing the Turkish atrocities committed against Christian Armenians. It was as recent as 1915 that Turkey “systematically uprooted (Armenian and Greeks) from their homes en masse… scattered in small groups among Turkish villages and given the choice between immediate acceptance of Islam or death by the sword or starvation“ (The History of Jihad: from Muhammad to Isis, by Robert Spencer). By the numbers, 1,500,000 Armenians, 700,000 Greeks, and 275,000 Assyrians “were killed in Ottoman territories under similar circumstances“ (The History of Jihad, by RS). In 1914 50% of Constantinople was Christian; today Istanbul is 99.99% Muslim.
It must be noted that congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota voted “present“ for this declaration. She is a Muslim and by recognizing as Congress has done these atrocities she would have been condemning the goal of Islam, which in their (Islamists) words, in the words of their scripture, repeated daily, is a world All for Allah. To achieve such an end there can be no non-Muslims, infidels, Christians, Jews, Hindus, et al. They must be eliminated.
Christian Atrocities at the Hands of Jihadists/Muslims
Since the death of Mohammed in 632AD (murdered) a crusade by jihadists has eliminated multitudes of Christian communities that have existed since the beginning of Christianity. In the first 75 years after his death Christian communities, from Syria, Jerusalem, across the north of Africa west to the Atlantic, the Maghreb, and north crossing the strait of Gibraltar into Andalusia (Spain), experienced at the hands of jihadists, the cry of Allahu Akbar heard daily, the decimation of their settlements. Churches were destroyed, fields of grain burned, priests and nuns violated, women and children enslaved, useful persons forced to pay a tax, and those that did not otherwise convert to Islam killed, at times in a most horrific fashion. Such practices were repeated recently by the likes of members of ISIS under the command of their barbaric, now dead, leader, al-Baghdadi. After the Jihadis invasion of Spain, the Muslim world continued to grow as imperialism-by-means-of-slaughter at the cost of non-Muslim lives, historical records, and expanses of territory from Spain/Africa eastward across Persia and India, and northward into Turkey.
China’s border became a barrier of resistance, as did Europe’s border on the eastern side (Hungary and Austria). The period of the Pope’s Crusades (1095-1291) created turmoil and conflict between Muslim and Christian. Restoring lands once held by Christians, taken by Muslims, the Holy Land, was the objective. But the Muslims claimed, and continue to do so, that land once theirs, no matter how taken, shall always be theirs. For a few hundred years lands changed hands, but then reverted back to Islamic control as the distance from the funding and the forces that would engage the Muslims was too great and priorities of the European monarchies took precedent. The Ottoman Empire bloomed, although the results of the fields they plowed were more blood spoiled than productive. The Turks thirst for Europe came to an end at the gates of Vienna (1683).
There was a calmer spell during the colonization era (British and French) and after the conversion of Turkey by Ataturk and the end of the Ottoman Caliphate. There was even progress towards the democratization of Muslim majority areas to include Turkey, Afghanistan and Iran. But then with oil in Saudi Arabia and Iran, enriched by an unexpected resource from Allah, the Jihadists clinging to the past, Wahhabism, the Muslim Brotherhood (Sayyid Qtub), the Ayatollah, et al used their money to create propaganda machines to influence the world from the perspective of Islam as peaceful, and non-aggressive, as well as attempt the radicalization of Muslims living in free countries. Multiple billions were spent to construct mosques and madrassas in the free world as well as secular Muslim nations (from the 70’s up to today) and impose curriculums of a strident fundamentalist Quranic interpretation. Wahhabism was the most popular format.
The rise of radical Islamists began a new wave of killing infidels, the Christians most subject to their terrorism, violence and fear tactics. The bullies of Islam were emboldened, al Qaeda, the Taliban, ISIS, al Shabaab, and many, many more in various areas of the world. Moderate Muslims were in the crosshairs as well; they were not sufficiently jihadist.
The heads of the snakes of Islam will always reconstitute themselves spewing the venom from the tenets of Islam. Fundamentalist Islam cannot change, unless Islam discovers a New Furqan (which is not likely).
I would comfortably estimate that since Muhammad’s murder hundreds of millions of Christian lives have been eliminated at the hands of jihadists and the sword of Islam. The killing will continue; for them it is a Holy War. We must understand Islam!
Never Ignore History
As with the Armenian massacres Christians must never ignore or forget the taking of Christian lands developed peacefully by indigenous people who accepted Christ and the Gospel. Even before the Crusades by Christians blessed by Pope Urban II in 1095 the Turks, having converted to Islam, wiped-out earlier Armenian villages, as well as other Christian sects in areas from East Asia to the eastern edge of Europe and south into Egypt. Shia groups were often treated as Christians, heretics, considered non-Muslim, and extirpated.
Janissaries, Christian children enslaved and forced into Islam, were raised as soldiers. They lived in compounds with other enslaved kids. They were taught the Koran. They were brainwashed to hate the infidels. They were impelled to obey their Islamist masters. They were engaged in daily practice and methods of war. The Jihadists have always trained and maintained large numbers of men in armies so that in strength they can attack the weak and take property, possessions, women, and slaves with little resistance. The number of janissaries in one instance grew to become Islamic commanders, the Mamluks, and were military leaders, autocrats, in the Islamic caliphate. In 1261 the Mamluks resurrected the Abbasid Caliphate in Cairo. Many factions, all righteous Islamic sects, or tribes, fought for control of their dream of an Empire to which the Mamluks, and others were always in conflict, at war. The Mamluks were defeated by the Ottoman Turks (1516-1517 war) in Cairo, Egypt. It was a battle between Sunni and Shia.
Civil war among Muslims has been non-stop. Groups, tribes, seeking to be the most pious, aware Allah only loves those who love him (which is not assured), fight each other. To those most obedient to the directives of Allah, and his messenger, Allah bestows his blessings. All others, I would presume, are heretics, go to hell, and do not enjoy the virgins and other pleasures of the Quranic Paradise. It is by the definition of the mightiest Jihadist, the grand Bully, Ayatollah or Imam, that ‘true Islam’ is proclaimed. All others are infidels. Thus, there can never be peace in Islam.
The Jihadist Rule is that land once conquered is always Islamic land. Any attempt to retake such property by those dispossessed is considered an aggressive act against Islam. They are then justified in defending this property, even though they murdered, raped, pillaged, burned, and decimated property to obtain possession in the first place. An interesting note is that the Muslim conquerors seldom attempted to develop the areas taken, as imperialists. They simply moved on to new areas where they continued their aggressive practices, as bullies overtaking the weak, and calling them adversaries.
Most Muslims today, if their DNA was tested, would find they were of a Christian heritage. Women and children, especially female children, bore children for the Islamic oppressors, the Caliphs, the sultans, the viziers, the aghas, and others on the hierarchal ladder. Children taken from Christian areas were also raised as Muslims. They bore children. The Islamic community is comprised of many (if not mostly) from the bloodline of Christians and Jews. The question that I raise, ‘would Muslims remain so if the Islamic apostasy laws, requiring punishment for those who leave Islam, to include death, were eliminated?’ If Islam was open-minded and allowed its people to think independently, to study, to read, and to pursue other avenues, philosophically, ideologically, and even from a religious perspective, would the majority of Muslims today remain Muslim?
History cannot be forgotten. Islamic history is founded upon the destruction of Christians, Hindus, Jews, and Persians (Zoroastrians). Islamic history must grapple with the enslavement of Christian women and children and perpetuating this ideology from birth resulting from relationships with Christians. Those born had to be Muslims. For the boys, they had to become militant hate-fueled jihadists. To control the masses, those under the thumb of the jihadist or Islamic autocrat, the example of Muhammad, killing those who chose no longer to follow him, became law and the means by which to maintain Muslims in what many consider a caged community. It is an oppressive ideology blaspheming God as a device to claim it as a religion. Allah may mean God, but the Islamic Allah is not God.
Never forget. Islam is aggressive. Islam is imperialistic. Islamists lie to serve Islam. Islamists are taught to hate. They are compelled to fight, in defense and as aggressive executioners of infidels. Jihadist wantonly destroyed multitudes of Christian settlements, Armenian, Augustinian, Corinthian, Carthaginian, Greek, Assyrian, Spanish, and so on since the death of Muhammad. All in the name of Allah, but in truth for the avarice of men who found a means to justify their egregious actions and command lemmings to fight to satisfy their lust and desire for riches. Alone they would all be cowards, hiding behind their children on other innocents when facing their own demise. More rabid dogs as was al-Baghdadi. Is it for this reason Muslims detest dogs? They remind them who they really are? The Ayatollah took exception with Islamists claiming Islam is a religion of peace. He declared that simply not true. There is no fun in Islam. There is but war, until the world is all Islam. But that can never happen and even among Muslims the definition of ‘true Islam’ will always be elusive, thus killing the heretic will continue.
Never Forget. Never Forget. Never Forget.
Grace and Peace.
