1,400 Years of Christian/Islamic Struggle: An Analysis, by Richard Csaplar.
Let us review the Muslim conquest. In 624, Mohammed led a raid for booty and plunder against a Meccan caravan, killing 70 Meccans for mere material gain. Between 630 A.D. and the death of Mohammed in 632 A.D., Muslims — on at least one occasion led by Mohammed — had conquered the bulk of western Arabia and southern Palestine through approximately a dozen separate invasions and bloody conquests.
These conquests were in large part “Holy wars,” putting the lie to [the PC nostrum that] the Crusades were “The First Holy War,” as if the Christians had invented the concept of a holy war. After Mohammed’s death in 632, the new Muslim caliph, Abu Bakr, launched Islam into almost 1,500 years of continual imperialist, colonialist, bloody conquest and subjugation of others through invasion and war, a role Islam continues to this very day.
You will note the string of adjectives and may have some objection to my using them. They are used because they are the absolute truth. Anyone denying them is a victim of PC thinking, ignorant of history, or lying to protect Islam.
A long article on Islam’s bloody history follows.
It’s a pity that many in the West believe the myth that we are war with militant Islam, as though there were some other form. Sadly, while there are many moderate Muslims there is no moderate Islam.
