I have purchased this book, but haven't had a chance to read it yet. Now the book is available in French. Perhaps some French readers will learn more about their dilemma.
Their leaders seem, like ours, determined to let Islam roll over us.

Most Christians are unaware of their history with the Muslims. Christianity was almost wiped out in Europe in 1683. The book is well worth reading to understand the peril that Christendom still faces.

Why do you think the Serbs were trying to wipe out the muzzies in the former Yugoslavia? They have had to live with those sadistic 10th century thought process since the almost islam take over of Europe. islam is sadistic, cruel, barbaric and anti-humanity. The liberals who love them are too stupid to realize they'll be the 2nd group of people (after the Jews) they'll wipe out if they ever take over.

#3 makes an excellent point. I tried to grasp what was happening in the former Yugoslavia based on "the media" who refuse to EVER mention the religions of the various warring groups. They were Serbs, Bosnians, Croats, Albanians and various other different "identity groups" by national identity or some other labels that weren't clear. The history is really muddled, with the Austro-Hungarian empire scooping a bunch of them up and jamming them together. Remember the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand? Here's a big piece of the root cause......never said in The Media..... Croats are Roman Catholics, Serbs are Orthodox Christians (Eastern/Russian type) and the Bosnians and Albanians are Muslims. Of course, these are imperfect labels, and there are other religions in each of those broad groups, and during the time it was Yugoslavia, most religion was suppressed, and groups intermarried. But that's the root cause here. The Balkans have been conquered by various armies over the centuries and controlled for periods and then a new army takes over. But the religion often sticks. So there are religious differences that aren't simple to solve....especially of the Muslims insist on taking over the world, and totally reject the concept of 'getting along'. But even the Roman Christians and Eastern Christians have had religious frictions for centuries. Is this an oversimplification? Yep, certainly. But it is also true and a large piece of the problem, and a puzzle piece that The Media has long hidden. You'll never hear that from the WashComPost or NYT. They don't want to talk about religion as being important.

A few years ago I was reading an interview with a Muslim cleric during which he was asked about moderate Islam versus radical Islam. His reply: "There is no moderate Islam. There is no radical Islam. There is only Islam." Muslims most likely have a much firmer grasp of Islam's place in history as we in the West have virtually outlawed any meaningful teaching of Western Civilization.

The Crusades weren't undertaken to kill poor, innocent muslims. They were undertaken because muslims kept invading the Holy Land.

GOP congressional candidate for New Jersey’s ninth district Billy Prempeh is taking a patriotic approach to his campaign, stressing the value of red, white and blue. Prempeh joined "Fox & Friends Weekend" on Sunday to outline the grounds of his campaign, explaining that being in the military taught him the true symbolism of the American flag. "When I decided to join the military and fight for the country, I understood that that flag meant more than just red, white and blue on a piece of cloth," he said. "It actually symbolizes the unification of our nation and the many things our country has gone through up until this point."

Richard Branson reached space on a test flight for Virgin Galactic before gliding back to earth and touching down safely Sunday, the latest salvo in the burgeoning space tourism business led by high-profile billionaires. The Virgin Group founder launched Sunday with three company employees, flying 53 miles above the earth in a final test mission before kicking off commercial space flights next year. Branson – who earned his pilot’s license – tested the astronaut cabin experience. Branson tweeted a photo of him with SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk Sunday morning, saying he is "feeling good, feeling excited, feeling ready." "Big day ahead," Branson wrote.

I can imagine our friends in the other 49 states muttering, "Lots of luck!" after reading the headline just above. California is, as the old quip goes, "the land of fruits and nuts." But with Gavin Newsom facing a recall election, the plan to shut down the nuclear power plant that provides almost 10% of the state's electric power is obvious madness.

Toxic fumes and smoke from a burning former paper mill in northern Illinois that officials had believed was long abandoned but actually contained massive amounts of lithium batteries prompted officials to extend an evacuation order into Thursday for residents in the area. The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency on Thursday also asked the state’s attorney general to pursue legal action against Superior Battery, the property owner, for contaminants released into the air and water as well as for improperly handling waste. The fire that started in Morris around midday Tuesday prompted city officials to order the evacuation of 3,000-4,000 people in some 950 nearby homes, a school, church and small businesses.
The Significance of China's ‘Unrestricted

In 1999, two Chinese officers explored potential strategies that militarily inferior nations might use against a superpower like the U.S. In their book Unrestricted Warfare: China’s Master Plan to Destroy America, they expounded on alternatives to direct military confrontation -- often defined as “gray-zone” or indirect war, and including tactics such as assaults on economic and financial systems, gaining control of infrastructure, disrupting networks, cyberattacks, political propaganda, and replacement of populations. Of course, China has employed this strategy, reminiscent of Sun-Tzu’s conviction that wars should be won without firing a single shot, against other adversaries. But nowhere is this more evident than in its actions against U.S. ally India.

Back in 2014, the political leadership of California became alarmed at the rapidly rising prison population in the state. The state was also under court order to reduce the overcrowding in state prisons. The people of California set a grand objective to reduce the number of convicts in the state. Fewer people going to prison has to be a good thing -- right? The first thing they did was pass Proposition 47 -- the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act. That sounds like something everyone would want. 58% of Californians voted in favor of the measure. There was just one problem. Reduced prison population

Everywhere other than in Big Media newsrooms, Americans speak openly of President Joe Biden's cognitive decline and wonder whether he can last out his four-year term. If he cannot last, there are certain things we can be confident will happen and other things about which we can only speculate. The latter will be much more intriguing. Should Biden leave office, willingly or otherwise, Kamala Harris will become president. This is a given. Article II, Section 1, Clause 6 of the Constitution makes clear that in "case of the removal of the President from office, or of his death, resignation, or inability

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is urging the Biden administration to lift its long-standing requirement for people to wear masks on airplanes and other forms of mass transit ahead of the upcoming Fourth of July holiday weekend. Airline travelers ages 2 and older currently have to wear face masks in order to fly, despite the widespread availability of COVID-19 vaccines and the CDC's recent declaration that fully vaccinated people can travel safely. "Biden’s CDC needs to ‘follow the science’ and end its mask mandate for vaccinated Americans on airplanes and public transportation," Cruz tweeted Monday morning. This followed a similar post Sunday night in which he added

CNN’s "The Lead with Jake Tapper" has shed a staggering 75% of its audience since the liberal network experienced a January spike in viewers. Tapper’s program averaged 2.8 million viewers in January but settled for only 706,000 in the 4 p.m. ET timeslot from May 31 through June 23, losing three-quarters of its audience in the process. Tapper’s second-quarter viewership is down 49% compared to the first quarter.

The model, actress and Pilates instructor woke her husband in Washington, DC, and frantically told him that their building was shaking before making the startling comments about a sinkhole, according to the outlet.

(snip) I want to unmask the lie that evolution denial is about religion and recognize that at its core, it is a form of white supremacy that perpetuates segregation and violence against Black bodies. Under the guise of “religious freedom,” the legalistic wing of creationists loudly insists that their point of view deserves equal time in the classroom.

The administration of Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania has ordered counties not to comply with a Republican state senator’s request for voting data to be used in an audit of the 2020 election. The Pennsylvania Department of State said in a two-page directive that the request by state Sen. Doug Mastriano of Franklin County, an ally of former President Donald Trump, “jeopardizes the security and integrity” of the counties’ voting systems. " Such access by third parties undermines chain of custody requirements and strict access limitations necessary to prevent both intentional and inadvertent tampering with electronic voting systems,” the department said.

Crowds cheered as workers removed a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday morning following a contentious four year legal battle. The 26-foot tall bronze monument - which has stood in the city's Emancipation Park since 1924 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997 - was hoisted off it base with a crane shortly after 8am. It will now be placed in storage. A separate statue of Confederate General Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson will also be removed in Charlottesville on Saturday afternoon. Both Lee and Jackson fought against the abolition of slavery in the US Civil War.

New evidence indicates that more than 10,300 illegal votes were cast in Georgia in the November 2020 general election — a number that will continue to rise over the next several months, potentially exceeding the 12,670 votes that separated Joe Biden and Donald Trump. While this evidence does not change the fact that Joe Biden is our president, all Americans who genuinely care about free and fair elections and the disenfranchisement of voters should demand both transparency and solutions to prevent a repeat in future elections.
