How War with Islam Shaped and Defined Us
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 10/9/2018 10:45:07 PM

Every once in a while, I come across a book that I can say changed the way I understand the world I live in. Raymond Ibrahim´s new book, Sword and Scimitar, altered the way I understand the development of our civilization – I mean the one that America inherited from Europe and made our own. It drove home to me how little I knew about the way Islam – in the form of attempted and often successful conquest – really changed the way our civilization evolved and the way it grew to understand itself.

Comments:
Useful piece.

One thing I know about islam, it IS NOT compatible with Western Civilization. We should NOT encourage muslims to settle anywhere in the West...

This is the only one and a smaller side of this evil. To the East this scourge has caused devastation that is simply unimaginable. If you add up numbers from the court chronicles of seven centuries of Muslim Shahs and Sultans of Hindu India the total comes to 86 million. This is THEIR number. God only knows what the real toll is. If you want to see a real Holocaust there it is. It was systematically covered up by the British whose policy was divide and rule to preserve their Empire.

Another day, another dead dissident over in the socialist hellhole of Venezuela. The death of Nelson Martinez in police custody made the news, because no one had ever seen such a high-level official killed off, possibly by bad medical care, which wouldn´t be surprising in a Venezuelan dungeon, or maybe a rubout from the mafia state that´s currently in power. Maybe it was both. It´s likely someone wanted him dead. Martinez had been Venezuela´s oil chief, the man at the top of state oil company Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A., which brought in 95% of the country´s

Hillary Clinton is baaack. According to Kyle Olson´s American Mirror, she´s been videographed and Twittered, dancing at an Indian billionaire´s wedding as though she were still in Colombia. Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin attended the wedding of the daughter of India´s richest man this past weekend, and when in India, Hillary´s gotta dance. The failed presidential candidate was center stage as the music blasted and everyone grooved at the Ambani wedding.

What´s a French leader without a rich, buttery serving of appeasement? Here´s a France24 headline: Macron raises minimum wage to appease Yellow Vest protesters That´s what he´s offering, following the big buildup for his national address following at least two weekends of angry populist riots across the country. Oh, there´s a bit of economic tinkering on other things, a tax hike taken back here, a tax-hike delay there, a request that companies (instead of the government) pay workers more cash via bonuses

In the annals of the idiocy of France´s ruling elites, how is this for a doozy? Via ABC News: Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said Monday the government could delay some payroll taxes, but expressed resistance to restoring the wealth tax or lowering taxes for retirees, among protesters´ demands. He stressed that the measures should focus on helping the working classes. "We are ready to make any gesture" that works, he said on RTL radio.

Far from safe, abortion is dirty,

Is abortion ´the safest procedure?´ The Planned Parenthood propaganda has dined out for years on its claim that legal abortions are the preferable alternative to ´back-alley´ and ´coat-hanger´ abortions. There´s not a Democratic Party convention since 1973 where this hasn´t been shouted to the rafters. Apparently it´s not even true. Planned Parenthood is fighting with every tooth and nail it has to keep abortion reporting requirements ´safe´ from the public eye, and it´s prompting questions about just what they have to hide.

The New York Police Department is planning to introduce a new drone program in New York City and we should all be enthusiastic about this development. The NYPD has assured the city council that the drones will not be used for surveillance and police work, but I think that is exactly what they should be used for. In a city that sees hundreds of murders a year, it makes sense that all of the technology at the police department’s disposal is put to good use. After all, if the drug dealers and gang bangers

Did Beto O´Rourke, the vacuous Democratic prettyboy who almost beat Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race give the latter a scare? Look, Ted Cruz is sporting a beard, and boy does it look good: Now that is stylin.´ Here are some more views: Talk about beating Beto at his own game. The latter came rather uncomfortably close to beating Cruz in the last midterm, 50.9%-48.3%, in the solid red state of Texas. O´Rourke didn´t do that based on his ideas, given that those are basically socialist ones, but on his Kennedyesque

If you believe, as I do, that the U.N.´s climate agenda is really about empowering unaccountable bureaucrats to divide up the wealth of rich countries, then this information, via Andrew Bolt, is revealing: It´s a feeding frenzy at the UN climate conference. There´s the excuse for taxpayer-paid travel, of course, and the excuse to extort huge donations from the guilty rich: An analysis of delegates by Carbon Brief found Guinea topped the list with 406 delegates, down 86 from last time.

Here is a Polish joke our conservative Polish-American friends should love. A two week gathering of diplomats and climate ´experts´ on man-made global warming started in Katowice, Poland this week. The purpose of the meetings is to strengthen the Paris Climate Accord to stem purported climate damage, which the environmentalists claim, is caused by burning fossil fuel. Note that the greatest bugaboo to the enviros is not oil; it´s coal. To them, coal is so evil that President Barack Hussein

MeToo loudmouth and Bay Area Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris of California has gotten herself into yet another scrap, this one claiming she knew nothing about a $400,000 payoff for a sexual harassment case brought on by one of her top staffers. How very ironic, given how she stuck it to spotless Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over sex harassment phony claims during his confirmation hearings and tried to make herself the figurehead for being sterling tough against sex harassment. The hypocrisy is thick. According to Fox News: A senior adviser to U.S. Sen.

Kamala Harris lost a key aide yesterday, but may have more problems retaining her credibility. Larry Wallace worked for Harris during her time as California’s attorney general as well as in her Senate office as a senior advisor. Between those two jobs, his assistant filed a complaint over sexual harassment and retaliation for Wallace’s actions during the transition. The state of California quietly paid $400,000 to settle the lawsuit, but it didn’t stay quiet permanently. The Sacramento Bee reported it yesterday afternoon: Larry Wallace, who served as the director of the Division of Law Enforcement

The Boy Scouts of America is mulling declaring bankruptcy amid flagging membership and an avalanche of costly sex abuse allegations, according to the Wall Street Journal. Leaders have hired Chicago law firm Sidley Austin for help in a potential Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, sources told the outlet. The organization has been fending off lawsuits over alleged abuse, including one filed by four former scouts who called the club a “pedophile magnet” and alleged that they were molested by scoutmaster Waldron Ackerman between 1974 and 1976. The organization has reportedly lost two-thirds of its members — some 4 million boys —

Woke 29-year-old Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went after White House Chief of Staff John Kelly yesterday. Why? She wants him to apologize to Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson for supposedly "lying" about her to reporters.(tweet)"Cowardice." Quite a big word to use against a four-star Marine Corps general whose son was killed in Afghanistan. Wilson´s spat with Kelly came last year when she alleged President Trump disrespected a military family during a phone call. Kelly disputed her characterization and gave a briefing to the White House press corps on how the military handles casualties.

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump. As Bill Kristol (no Trump apologist) put it: “[B]ased on what I saw of their respective performances in that Oval Office meeting today, I don’t understand why it’s Nancy Pelosi who’s facing a leadership challenge and Chuck Schumer who isn’t.” The mainstream media will focus

Two groups of migrants from Central America marched to the American consulate in Tijuana, Mexico, yesterday, with a list of demands to the Trump administration. One of them asked the American president to either let them in the country or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. The first group, including about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11am on Tuesday. Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the $50,000 figure is not a very big sum. ´It may seem like a lot of money to you,´ he said.

New York Times opinion writer Jennifer Weiner told CBS This Morning hosts that holiday office parties are nothing more than another opportunity for women to be sexually harassed. In her article titled “The Torture of Dressing for Your Office Holiday Party,” Weiner described the holiday season as “the least wonderful time of the year.” “Why are we having holiday parties at all?” complained Weiner to Gayle King on Monday morning. “Wouldn’t you rather have an extra $100 in your paycheck than have to put on the Spanx, put on the heels, be social with the guy with, like, the stale coffee breath

When Professor Christine Blasey-Ford testified against the Supreme Court nomination of then-Judge Bret Kavanaugh, my very first impression was that her voice sounded fake. She sounded like a scared little girl, her voice tremulous, creating an impression of sadness and vulnerability. (snip) For the first time since her testimony, we now have the opportunity to hear her voice, and guess what? She doesn’t sound at all like the witness whose fear and suffering moved so many Democrats and feminists. She sounds like a grown-up, a professor indeed.

EXCLUSIVE – President Trump has canceled the White House holiday party for the media, making the decades-old tradition a victim of his increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations. The annual Christmas-season gathering was a significant perk for those covering the White House, as well as other Washington reporters, anchors and commentators, and New York media executives would regularly fly in for the occasion. At its peak, the invitation-only soirees grew so large that there were two back-to-back events, one for broadcast outlets and one for print organizations.
