The Crusades

Are we seeing the beginning of a religious war in the attacks in Libya and Egypt?

There are those who will defend Islam for the standard reasons, America is imperialistic, we ” steal” their oil, we attacked/occupied their country, we started “illegal” wars…none of which are true – but are always used as convenient excuses for “progressives” so that they can avoid the real issue – that being that we are under attack by a religion, not a political unit or a government.

It is easy for most of them to excuse because, as we saw demonstrated at the Democratic National Convention, religion isn’t really something that they would think merits a defense.

But this is where the link between our country’s founding and Judeo-Christian beliefs is important – due to these religious tenets being so deeply rooted in our country attacks against Jews, Christians, or our core beliefs are attacks on America and our enemies see our very existence as an affront to their religion and are willing to die (and kill) to “defend” it at the slightest provocation.

What inspired the latest attacks?

A movie, made in America, by an individual allowed to create it under his First Amendment rights.

Time and time again, Islamists have proven that they are willing to kill over the handling of a book, a cartoon in a newspaper or some supposed slight in a movie.

American leftists, “progressives” and other associated Islamic apologists simply cannot process the fact that these people are willing commit 7th century atrocities in the name of religion because faith and religion mean nothing to them.

So they stick their heads in the sand and grasp for any fault in our country as the driver for the violence. As fast as they assign America’s faults to Judeo-Christian faith, they are equally rapid in assigning blame to any factor except Islam.

The fact that we have been witness to the most Islam-friendly, the most deferential and apologetic, and perhaps the most politically correct toward Islam administration in our history and that did still did nothing to stop the killing should be a wake-up call to all Americans.

Radical Muslims did not accept Obama’s open hand offered in his Cairo speech, they are not content to be left alone to their own devices through Obama’s military retreats, they did not accept the apologies of the “Kill Bush” crowd that rushed to the Internet after the 2008 election to proclaim how sorry they were for the Bush years and they care nothing for the “nuance” of the “progressives” political correctness.

This is an ongoing religious war that could destroy the foundations of America by attacking our basic beliefs and no amount of rationalization will change that.

The faster we wise up to that fact, the better chance against these attacks we will have.

  1. Blaming America, for terrorist attacks is

    EQUAL to

    Blaming a rape victim because of how she dressed, or where she was, or how she acted….

  2. It’s a fine how-do-ya-do after all that we’ve done for them. See what happens when you cast pearls before swine? We need to concentrate on Israel and let these ding-dong-dummies feed themselves whilst they self-destruct. I know how. The Crusades need not be won firing a single shot. It’s very simple, really: You cut them off. How’s that gonna work out for them? Only problem is we’ve got a president who doesn’t seem to fond of cutting them off…..

  3. Yet just another in a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG line of examples of “fine Muslim benevolence”.

    But we should probably delete all of these articles and posts. We wouldn’t want to offend a certain someone. 🙂

  4. WW I started over an assassination that was connected to the Middle East (Ottoman Empire). WW II was just WW I — scene 2, Act 2. So why should we be surprised if WW III starts in the same region of the world???

    Actually, as a student of history, I see this coming, but I also see the larger connection. If you want to understand what is happening, you have to read and understand Biblical prophecy — period. Contrary to what non-believers like to claim, end times prophecy in the Bible is actually very specific on a great many points, even naming peoples and nations involved in the end times events by name. It also makes many specific predictions about Israel, many of which have come to pass — such as the flowering of the deserts and the ends of the annual locust in specific parts of the region. Thee is also a mention of Israel as the world’s largest flower and fruit exporter right at the end. Go look it up and you’ll see how close Israel is to fulfilling this prophecy already. Then ask yourself what happens if the U.S. suddenly drops from the world scene. OH! And then there are the recent large oil discoveries in the northern parts of Israel — exactly where Moses said two of his sons’ descendents would “dip their heels in oil” and “reap the treasures beneath the sands.”

    Yes, there’s a war coming — and it is gonna be a doosey!

    • “WW I started over an assassination that was connected to the Middle East (Ottoman Empire)”

      Actually B, that is a great point, and one I had long forgotten. Nice connection. 🙂

      • Just how my confounded brain works: I remember things I have no right to even know while I can’t remember the name of someone I just met and with whom I am still chatting. 😦

  5. Utah, my man! You have exposed Obama as an apologetic muslim toady and sycophant, congrats!
    Here is a partial list of those our President has apologized to, as compiled by Jake Tapper of ABC news, in sep, 2011.

    There’s Osama bin Laden, of course, killed in May.
    Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) leader Anwar al-Awlaki as of today.
    Earlier this month officials confirmed that al Qaeda’s chief of Pakistan operations, Abu Hafs al-Shahri, was killed in Waziristan, Pakistan.
    In August, ‘Atiyah ‘Abd al-Rahman, the deputy leader of al Qaeda was killed.
    In June, one of the group’s most dangerous commanders, Ilyas Kashmiri, was killed in Pakistan. In Yemen that same month, AQAP senior operatives Ammar al-Wa’ili, Abu Ali al-Harithi, and Ali Saleh Farhan were killed. In Somalia, Al-Qa’ida in East Africa (AQEA) senior leader Harun Fazul was killed.
    Administration officials also herald the recent U.S./Pakistani joint arrest of Younis al-Mauritani in Quetta.
    Going back to August 2009, Tehrik e-Taliban Pakistan leader Baitullah Mahsud was killed in Pakistan.
    In September of that month, Jemayah Islamiya operational planner Noordin Muhammad Top was killed in Indonesia, and AQEA planner Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan was killed in Somalia.
    Then in December 2009 in Pakistan, al Qaeda operational commanders Saleh al-Somali and ‘Abdallah Sa’id were killed.
    In February 2010, in Pakistan, Taliban deputy and military commander Abdul Ghani Beradar was captured; Haqqani network commander Muhammad Haqqani was killed; and Lashkar-e Jhangvi leader Qari Zafar was killed.
    In March 2010, al Qaeda operative Hussein al-Yemeni was killed in Pakistan, while senior Jemayah Islamiya operative Dulmatin – accused of being the mastermind behind the 2002 Bali bombings – was killed during a raid in Indonesia.
    In April 2010, al Qaeda in Iraq leaders Abu Ayyub al-Masri and Abu Omar al-Baghdadi were killed.
    In May, al Qaeda’s number three commander, Sheik Saeed al-Masri was killed.
    In June 2010 in Pakistan, al Qaeda commander Hamza al-Jawfi was killed.
    Remember when Rudy Giuliani warned that electing Barack Obama would mean that the U.S. played defense, not offense, against the terrorists?
    If this is defense, what does offense look like?
    -Jake Tapper

    • Hey Greg, thanks for posting that. Now I can use it against another nut job liberal whining an bellyaching about water-boarding, and taking away the rights of the GITMO detainees. That’s a nice long list to prove exactly how much more benevolent this POTUS is over our last POTUS.

      The next cup of coffee is on my, my friend, in appreciation.

    • So I get it. Let’s measure dicks, shall we? Let’s do a body count with the Bush record if that’s how you want to take the measure of a leader because Obama loses on that count by a large margin.

      An apology looks like this:

      “Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”

      That’s the actual text that was released by our embassy folks.The Bush administration never issued such a statement in a time of crisis like this one…and it is telling that the administration took so long to disavow it.

      It seems that they seem to have time to spell check and approve Vanity Fair articles about his Oneness but not official US government communiques…

      • Well here’s another fine example of an apology:

        “The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”

        But of course, this administration only wanted to walk that back after public outcry. Actually, there was little attempt to walk it back, in fact, they just simply tried to erase that statement all together …

        Here we go again … liberals trying to re-write history to suit their own needs.
