Exactly 233 years ago this week, two of Americas founding fathers documented their first exposure to Islamic jihad in a letter to Congress; like many Americans today, they too were shocked at what they learned.
Context: in 1785, Muslim pirates from North Africa, or Barbary, had captured two American ships, the Maria and Dauphin, and enslaved their crews. In an effort to ransom the enslaved Americans and establish peaceful relations, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams -- then ambassadors to France and England respectively -- met with Tripolis ambassador to Britain, Abdul Rahman Adja. Following this diplomatic exchange, they laid out the source of the Barbary States hitherto inexplicable animosity to American vessels in a letter to Congress dated March 28, 1786:

Read just like your book PING
Islam has been pretty consistent for 1400 years,
Convert, pay tax or die, most of what they are today was done at the end of a sword.
Hundreds of millions killed or enslaved.
Our leaders call them a religion of peace.
we even elected a sympathizer with questionable credentials as president twice
By the way, I read the Forbidden Manifesto of the New Zealand shooter. Mostly because everybody demands that you don’t. I did learn one new thing, One of the mosques he targeted had been converted from a Christian Church. Beautiful white wooden building that looks like it could have popped up on the plains of North Dakota. He was very angry about that.
Millions for defense but NOT ONE PENNY FOR TRIBUTE
Our founding fathers were neither shim is nor dummies.

There was a spot of time when some Islamic philosophers had read Aristotle and became familiar with reason and they were able to have good discussions with other philosophers.
Around 1100 AD some imams got together and decided that western civilization philosophy had no place in the islamic world. They issued death sentences for anyone teaching philosophy or reading it.
When no dialogue is possible with the islamic state there can be no reasoned discussions.
What can you do when you are dealing with people who have not grown mentally since 1100 AD. and they refuse to listen to reason?
“....people who have not grown mentally since 1100 AD. and they refuse to listen to reason...” Napa nan? Schumuckey schumer?
Many good books out there on the subject but one I like to recommend: The Pirate Coast by Richard Zacks...
I guess we need to include “and all who support the muslins” too.
“we even elected a sympathizer with questionable credentials as president twice”
A freeper pontificated to me four days ago that we must “prioritize” and MUST NOT question the Fraud’s citizenship, or the Jew-hater’s marriage to her brother, because it is bad for America and empowers our enemies, or some such horseclinton.
Who knew the solution was to ignore our elected domestic enemies and let them do whatever they wish?!
