I am not siding with the radical muslims here at all. I would just like to offer some perspective. It is my belief that people are becoming more
civilized at their own rate. 100 years ago these people were cutting eachothers heads off with knoves for proper drinking water. 80 years ago the
money starts rolling into the region from contracts and what-not. This royal families of these areas continually kept the money for themselves, while
neglecting to invest in the infrastructure. All the while, also neglecting to invest in schools, rather Mosques went into construction at a massive
Each civilization matures at their own rate, and I don't have to remind the people here of the western world's crusades do I?
In Fighting for Christendom: Holy War and the Crusades, British historian Christopher Tyerman challenges many assumptions about the epic conflicts
that began when Pope Urban II summoned Christians to invade areas of the Middle East in 1095. Christian troops conquered Jerusalem, killing most of
the city's inhabitants, and Western-sponsored states were established in Syria and Palestine.
What do you think those Mosque taught about those Crusades? Now ask yourself this, if the only education you got in your life was Sunday School, and
your pastors or preachers were upset that their country was being controlled by the same western world that enslaved in from their last group study,
the feelings would certainly resonate.
Remember Mohammad was a warrior, Jesus never faught a war. The leaders are from two different beliefs. Heres Jesus.
"Then they came up and laid hands on Jesus and seized him. And behold, one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his
sword, and struck the slave of the high priest, and cut off his ear. Then Jesus said to him, "Put your sword back into its place; for all who take
the sword will perish by the sword. Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels?.
But how then should the scriptures be fulfilled, that it must be so?"... "But Jesus said, "No more of this!" And he touched his ear and healed
him." (Mat.26:50-54, Lk.22:51)...
Muhammad was a warrior and left a warriors personality when died. In the first 100 years of Islam they destroyed 3,200 christian churches.
Far from the crusaders being the aggressors, it was the Muslim armies which had spread Islam from Saudi Arabia across the whole of Christian North
Africa into Spain and even France within the first century after the death of Muhammad. Muslim armies sacked and slaughtered their way across some of
the greatest Christian cities in the world, including Alexandria, Carthage, Antioch and Constantinople. These Muslim invaders destroyed over 3,200
Christian churches just in the first 100 years of Islam.
My point in this post is to remind the posters here that modernization and all our domestication doesn't mean the rest of the world is american made.
This world is one revolving religious war that has not stopped, ony slowed down.
Let's look at the facts, todays radical Muslims are just the most recent sign that this conflict has yet to dissolve.
We need to start looking at the history of this conflict so we can properly identify how to control it. And it is NOT with, they are the crazy
