Skip to comments.Please help - Wars and Islam
Posted on 10/11/2005 6:44:09 AM PDT by Boogieman69
I am currently engaged in a debate with a Peacenik. I know in the past I have read threads which contained information on all the current world conflicts and listed the parties involved - and how most involved Muslims. Can someone please repost this information or provide a link as I cannot find it on here or on Google. Thanks in advance.
"So what is the truth about the Crusades? Scholars are still working some of that out. But much can already be said with certainty. For starters, the Crusades to the East were in every way defensive wars. They were a direct response to Muslim aggressionan attempt to turn back or defend against Muslim conquests of Christian lands."
I did a google on islamic led wars and this came up.
It seems quite legit at first browse, maybe it will help?
Ian the 3rd Sobieski kicked the Turks in the butt when the tried to ride north.
For your consideration.
Most people don't know or remember that the reason for the U.S. Army adopting the M1911A side arm in .45ACP was because we were engaged in a war with Islam beginning in 1918 or thereabouts, in the Philippines.
The Moro fighters attacked army officers with swords. The officer would empty his .38 into the attacker, and then get is head cut off. Pretty ugly.
The Colt .45 put a quick end to all that nonsense.
In the 20th century alone:
1. Muslim Turkey has expelled approximately 1,500,000 Greeks from its empire in the east and replaced them with Turks. They have massacred approximately 2 million Armenians and replaced them with Turks in the west.
2. Muslim Turkey has invaded and occupied northern Cyprus, displacing the Greeks living there.
3. Muslim northern Sudan has conquered much of southern Sudan, literally enslaving its Christian and pagan population.
4. Indonesian imperialism has occupied all of non-Islamic western New Guinea and incorporated into Indonesia.
5. Muslim Indonesia has invaded and conquered Christian East Timor with horrible loss of life.
6. This very day, Muslim Indonesia is attempting to destroy Christianity in what used to be called the Celebes.
7. A half-dozen Arab countries have fought two to four wars (depending how you count) in an attempt to destroy Israel and occupy its territory, and is currently continuing the attempt this very day with the publicly voted consent of 55 of the world's 57 Islamic nations.
8. For no good reason, Muslim Libya has blown up western aircraft, killing many civilians.
9. Muslim Iraq, in an imperialist war of aggression, invaded and occupied Muslim Kuwait.
10. Muslim Iraq, in an imperialist act of aggression, invaded Muslim Iran with a resulting (some estimates say) death of 2 million people.
11. Muslim Albania, this very minute, is attempting to enlarge its borders at Christian Macedonia's expense.
12. Muslim Northern Nigeria has been (and is currently) an aggressor against the Christian south.
13. Muslims expelled approximately 800,000 Jews from their homelands between 1947 and 1955.
14. During Jordan's occupation of the West Bank, the kingdom undertook an unsuccessful attempt to make Jerusalem a Muslim city by forcing out approximately 10,000 Christian inhabitants.
Are you sure this isn't urban legend? Circa 1918, the Moro Island Muslims wanted the Philippines to be admitted to the Union, since the 1st Amendment would have protected them from persecution by the Philppines' Roman Catholic majority.
Sarcasm, right? A good joke, yes?
I certainly hope so! But these days, with the education system being what it is, I'm not certain.
I would suggest going to the US State Department website. On it they have travel advisories which tell US citizens which countries to be cautious about visiting and which ones to avoid all together. I think you will find the list contains mostly places where Muslim radicals are making war against the current government.
Nope, times have changed. Don't forget it was the Spanish Empire which had the Philippines before we got them, and they took as, shall we say, a more vigorous attitude toward Islam than was characteristics.
Hi, I did the legwork here is the link to the US Department of State's Current Travel Warnings.
Can't anyone see that "Islam is a religion of peace?"(BARF!)
To add to your collection of Islamic Wars...
ping! For good luck.
The 1911 in M1911A gives a better hint than that. The fight would have been before 1911, not after. (Actual dates 1899-1913.)
Good start on a list, but you left out a number.
Algeria mustlim extremists chop the heads off of moderates.
Turkey - Greek dispute over Cyprus.
Saudi Arabia - Muslim radical extremists being attacked by super radical extremists.
Austraila - Muslim gangs systmatically attack Australian women.
Philippines - two good sized Muslim groups routinely attack Phillipino Christians and periodically decapitate kidnapped westerners.
Thailand - Muslim militants routinely murder innocent civilians and attack government forces.
Pakistan - India. Routine shelling across the Line of Control in Kashmir.
These off the top of my head. I'm sure research would turn up more.
