Crusades Include Barbary Coast Pirates

Initial Crusades

Muslims have never let up since the death of Mohammed. The Crusades emanated in 1095, when Pope Urban II gave a speech calling upon the nobility of Western Europe, to go to the East and assist their Catholic Byzantine brothers, against the attacks of Muslims. They began a movement from the Middle Ages, into modern times.

Muslim expansion was always accomplished by the sword. Muslims divide the world into two spheres–the Abode of Islam, and the Abode of War. Crusades were in every way defensive wars. A direct response to Muslim aggression, they attempted defense against Muslim conquests of Christian lands. Christianity had to defend itself, or be subsumed by Islam. The Crusades were that defense.

One should realize Crusades were highly complex, spread across many lands, finally ending in 1945 when the last crusade tax was abolished in Pueblo, Co.

A more loosely organized Muslim force from 16th-19th centuries came from the coast of North Africa (all Muslim).  The opening line of the “Marine’s Hymn” refers to this Barbary Coast.

Past Crusades have been transformed from armed aggression, to clandestine attacks within the American homeland by ‘Islamic jihadis’.

Cases Illustrating Muslim Intent

  o   Strict Muslims still believe in Sharia Law, allowing ‘honor killings’– family member deviating from Muslim teaching can be executed by other family members. Shariah typically called ‘civilization jihad’ [jihadisMuslim subset who’ve declared war on U.S.].  

  o   Most Islam clerics have declared a holy jihad against infidels (‘non-believers’), and killing an infidel is a Muslim Command.

  o   ACT for America analyzed 38 school textbooks, and found Islam using up vast more pages, decreasing space for Judaism and Christianity.

  o   Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) Chairman Omar Ahmad, told California Muslims (1998) in America, don’t to assimilate, but assert Islam’s rule over the country. “The Quran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”

  o   “If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land,” said Mustafa Carroll (Director/Dallas CAIR) keynote speaker at recent rally. CAIR (founded 1993) serves as fundraising/political arm for Hamas.

  CAIR also had advisory board member Siraj Wahhaj (co-conspirator/’93 World Trade Center bombings).  Wahhaj also asked to deliver Juma (invocation) at the DNC for President Obama. He remarked, “It is my duty and our duty as Muslims to replace the U.S. Constitution with the Quran.”

  o   Muslim Mafia: CAIR had at least fifteen people directly connected to terrorism. An FBI veteran familiar with CAIR  said, “Their offices have been a turnstile for terrorists and their supporters.”

  o   When Shahzad attempted to explode bomb in Times Square, administration declared a lone wolf attack, later conceding Pakistani Taliban was responsible.

  o   When Benghazi attacked (administration fallacy al-Qaeda died with bin Laden), they ran campaign contrived to obfuscate obvious al-Qaeda involvement.

  o   Saudi Arabia: protecting most holy locations of Islam, responsible for exporting most virulent strain of Islam (Wahhabism) to foreign shores.

  Traditional Values Coalition: over 80% all mosques in America advocate use of violence against non-believers, and if built after 9/11 were built with Saudi wahabbi money.  Around every Islamic mosque, a ‘waqfestablished. Muslims purchase 3-mile perimeter around the mosque, effectively eliminating onlookers.

  o   Laura Haim (Canal Plus/French TV): Obama noted U.S. could be considered “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”

  o   USA Today (2/12): “The number of Islamic places in the United States soared 74% in the past decade…the overall number of mosques quietly rose from 1,209 in 2000 to 2,106 in 2010.”

Muslim Current Actions

The West is terrified of taking on evil existing in Islamist ideology–that beheads innocents, eats the organs of its foes, burns Christian churches to the ground, and brazenly executes priests. In Cairo, Obama declared, “a new beginning” to relations with Muslims.

A few years ago, Ronnie Lister (Houston social justice activist): “We are looking for the day when a Muslim will become president of the United States; you heard it from me.”

A Muslim President?

In twenty years we’ll have enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect a president. Americans elected Obama twice, the son of a Muslim father and adopted son of a Muslim step-father. He is the President who keeps insisting al-Qaeda is receding as a threat, when it really is a growing one.

Obama labeled Ft. Hood Nidal Hasan’s killing spree (13 killed, 30 injured) “workplace violence”, rather than jihadism.

The Pentagon was authorized recently to give twenty ‘F-16’ fighters to the Muslim Brotherhood-led government in Egypt. Radical Islam was invited to the DNC in September (Charlotte, NC). Obama believes words drove Muslims to murder our ambassador in Libya, storm our embassy in Tunisia, and burn American flags in Cairo.

Huma Abedin, the Hillary Clinton ‘aide’, and wife of Anthony Weiner, was found directly connected to Muslim Brotherhood. Abedin’s late father, mother, and brother are well-documented Muslim Brotherhood collaborators and/or functionaries.

Confirming WND’s exclusive reporting, the New York Times last month reported that since early 2012, the CIA has been aiding Arab governments and Turkey in obtaining and shipping weapons to the Syrian rebels. This is confirmed by a U.N. report covers up Obama role in arming terrorists – WorldNetDaily.

On 6/09, Obama said, “You’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith.”  On 9/26/12, Obama bowing to the Saudi king, said: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” Per Dale Lindsborg (Washington Post): Obama, 2008 Meet The Press: “It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren.”

Look to Muslim Brotherhood for the U.S. threat. Obama is compromising security by allowing radical Islamists access to the White House, according to a report by the Investigative Project on Terrorism.  IPT  logs show ‘hundreds of visits’ by those fronting for Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. A shooting Monday at the Washington Navy Yard killed thirteen. The  ‘Debkafile‘  intelligence report said: “Two days ago al-Qaeda leader Ayman Zawahiri issued a videotaped call for an adherent to carry out a ‘lone wolf attack’ inside the United States.”

Presidential Intentions

Understanding our commander-in-chief was likely born in Africa, puts things in a different perspective. Obama has been filmed many times saying he is Muslim. It seems obvious terror awareness of Muslim activities has been greatly downgraded. Will Americans rise up, and refuse to be subjugated by a terrorist-led administration?

After 9/11 the enemy should be obvious…both inside and outside the gates. Crusades are still among us…
