VIDEO: Obama’s Deception – The Crusades vs Islamic Jihad
viral buzz ^ | 2/8/15 | staff

Posted on 02/08/2015 11:27:32 AM PST by Nachum



Obama, like many before him, excuses Islamic State because the Christians did it first

President Obama took to the floor during Thursday morning’s National Prayer Breakfast. He defended IS by saying the Christians did it first with the Crusades. So let’s actually look at how Islamic Jihad has spread across North Africa and Europe.  The image above shows the Muslim conquest battles and by comparison, the image below shows the areas where the Crusades took place.


That seems a lot less than President Obama would have you believe

Now what the short video that explains the difference between an aggressive Muslim expansion and the Crusades which began in 1095, when armies of Christians from Western Europe responded to Pope Urban II’s plea to go to war against Muslim forces in the Holy Land.  To understand the magnitude of what President Obama said, it is important to understand the history behind both battles.

I’ll be that certain anti-Catholics now wish the crusades had been more effective.

Obama absolves islam and condemns Christian crusaders of c. 1000 years ago - which are the exact words of the islamic killers! The Jordanian pilot was caged and burned alive because of his “aiding and abetting the crusaders”.

Yet again Obama absolves moslems of wrong doing and stands with islam.

I was watching a movie on ESPN last night about a black saint from Somalia who was captured for a slave as a 6 yr old child. She was forced to walk hundreds of miles and treated brutally, and yes, she was captured by Arabs and forcibly converted to Islam. She was horribly scarred by them.

After many years she was taken in by Catholics and became a nun and became was declared an African Saint. Her name was Bakhita.

The priest mentioned her today at Mass but said she was from the Sudan. I think Somalia must be right because that was an Italian colony and she ended up in Italy. She died in 1947 and was canonized in 2000.

posted these in another similar thread- but worth posting here too-

it’s very funny/odd that the ‘Christian Crusades’ are always mentioned but the ‘Muslim Crusades’ which begat the Christian crusades is NEVER mentioned- The FACT is that the Christian crusades were a defensive act against muslim aggression that had been ongoing for quite some time- The Christian crusades were a direct result of the MUSLIM CRUSADES that were waged against Christians and Jews. Muhammad initiated and ordered aggression against the Christian ‘infidels’ and ordered that their lands be taken by the sword- which they did!

I don’t hear anyone on Fox news getting the FACTS out to the public who are largely ignorant of what actually happened, and who mistakenly think the Christian Crusades were an order by the church to plunder, murder and convert via the sword- the Crusades were NOT - Some crusaders did go astray, however, they were NOT doing so under the orders from the church, they were doing so under the influence of the evil one because these people were NOT saved to begin with- God NEVER ordered such atrocities, and those few that did so were NOT following orders from God- Period!

Early in the eighth century, sixty Christian pilgrims [to the Holy Land] from Amorium were crucified [by Muslims]; around the same time, the Muslim governor of Caesarea seized a group of pilgrims from Iconium and had them all executed as spies…

Brutal subordination and violence became the rules of the day for [or against] Christians in the Holy Land. In 772, the caliph al-Mansur ordered the hands of Christians and Jews in Jerusalem be stamped with a distinctive symbol. Conversions to Christianity were dealt with particularly harshly. In 789, Muslims beheaded a [Christian] monk who had converted from Islam and plundered the Bethlehem monastery of Saint Theodosius, killing many more monks. Other monasteries in the region suffered the same fate. Early in the ninth century, the persecutions grew so severe that large numbers of Christians fled to Constantinople [the eastern center of Christianity] and other Christian cities. More persecutions in 923 saw additional churches destroyed, and in 937, Muslims went on a Palm Sunday rampage in Jerusalem, plundering and destroying the Church of Calvary and the Church of the Resurrection.

From Spencer, Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam, 122-23.

“Though European Crusaders may have been sincere, they wandered off from the origins of Christianity when they slashed and burned and forced conversions. Jesus never used violence; neither did he call his disciples to use it. Given this historical fact, it is only natural that the New Testament would never endorse violence to spread the word of the true God. Textual reality matches historical reality.

In contrast, Muslims who slashed and burned and forced conversions did not wander off from the origins of Islam, but followed it closely. It is a plain and unpleasant historical fact that in the ten years that Muhammad lived in Medina (622-632), he either sent out or went out on seventy-four raids, expeditions, or full-scale wars, which range from small assassination hit squads to the Tabuk Crusade [630]... Sometimes the expeditions did not result in violence, but a Muslim army always lurked in the background. Later on, Muhammad could exact a terrible vengeance on an individual or tribe that double-crossed him. These ten years did not know long stretches of peace.

Therefore, it is only natural that the Quran would be filled with references to jihad and qital, the latter word meaning only fighting, killing, warring, and slaughtering. Textual reality matches historical reality.

But this means that the Church had to fight back or be swallowed up by an aggressive religion over the centuries. Thus, the Church did not go out and conquer in a mindless, bloodthirsty, and irrational way––though the Christian Crusades were far from perfect.

Islam was the aggressor in its own Crusades, long before the Europeans responded with their own.”

The Crusades were a DEFENSIVE action against a Muslim invasion of the West. They had already taken Jerusalem and kicked out all Christians and Jews. Pope Urban II started the first Crusade in 1095 at the request of the Orthodox church in Constantinople. They needed help defending themselves against the beheaders.

I saw Sudan and I saw Somalia. I don’t know which is correct. The movie is on Youtube and while it is embellished, I am sure, it is very, very good. I really enjoyed it.

Obama has a view of “histioric justice.” The sins of the forefathers shall be paid by the descendants. This is a common view held by every PETTY fascist icon throughout the 19th and 20th Centuries, yet America still sleeps?


Good Read on Obama fascism and how it works:

Jindal to Obama: ‘Medieval Christian Threat is Under Control’
By Eliana Johnson
NRO 2/6/2015

Bobby Jindal on Friday released a statement responding to the president’s remarks on Thursday at the National Prayer Breakfast in which he cautioned Americans from getting on a “high horse” when taking a stance against radical Islam because people have committed “terrible deeds” in the name of Christianity, too.

“It was nice of the President to give us a history lesson at the Prayer breakfast,” Jindal said. “Today, however, the issue right in front of his nose, in the here and now, is the terrorism of Radical Islam, the assassination of journalists, the beheading and burning alive of captives.

We will be happy to keep an eye out for runaway Christians, but it would be nice if he would face the reality of the situation today. The Medieval Christian threat is under control, Mr. President. Please deal with the Radical Islamic threat today.”

Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, caused a stir on a recent trip to London when he assailed so-called “no go” zones and, in subsequent remarks both in Europe and in the U.S., insisted on the importance of assimilation among immigrants.

“You’ve got people who want to come to our country but not adopt our values,” the Louisiana governor told CNN last month, calling the idea ”dangerous.”

Expect this to be a major theme of a Jindal presidential campaign, if and when it gets off the ground.

Only way to win—is to become as crazy as crazy as they are—thats how Christian Spanish beat the moors. You can’t use reason—you can use civilization—Remember what we did to the Nazis and Japanese? We targeted their people, blew up their cities, burned them out and used atomic bombs.
