Connecting The Dots: The History Of Islam Is One Of Violence And Bloodshed

“The skulls of small children were smashed with rocks; the bodies of girls and women, who resisted rape or conversion into Moslems, were chopped into pieces live; men were mostly beheaded or thrown into the nearby river; the clergy, monks and nuns were skinned or burned live.” And all for peaceful purposes, you see …

Qur’an Sura 9:111a, “[Allah] hath purchased of the believers [Muslims] their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain …”

Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”

Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”

By Joe David, INN – “Call the enemy what you like – radicals, fundamentalists, Islamic terrorists, jihadists, or, historically, just plain Muslims. Connect the dots to their past activities, and you will uncover a disturbing pattern: a fanatical commitment to eliminating infidels.

Some of you may recall the American Embassy bombings (in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and in Nairobi, Kenya), and the brutal killings of innocent Westerners (Wall Street Journal Reporter Daniel Pearl, Businessman Nick Berg, and American Helicopter Engineer Paul Johnson). For those who don’t here are a few highlights from the past you may recall, which should help connect the dots.

  • The murder of Robert Kennedy by a Palestinian national, Sirhan Sirhan (1968);
  • The eleven Israeli athletes murdered during the Munich olympic games by Palestinians (1972);
  • The Beirut barracks’ massacre led by Hezbollah that killed several hundred military members (1983);
  • The Lockerbie, Scotland, bombing of a Pan American flight by Libyan terrorists, which killed 271 victims (1988);
  • The September 11th coordinated attack of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon by al-Qaeda, which resulted in about 3,000 deaths and $10 billion in property damages (2001);
  • The shooting of 13 soldiers and the injuring of about 30 others at Fort Hood military base by a psychiatrist, shouting Allahu Akbar! (Allah is great) (2009);
  • The savage murder of the U.S. Ambassador and several others in Benghazi, Libya by jihadists (2012);
  • The Boston Marathon bombings, planned by two Chechen brothers, which killed 3 and injured 260 (2013);
  • And the kidnapping of about 230 Nigerian school girls by the Islamic terrorists, Boko Haram (2014).

History is replete with many more examples. Open your history books, the ones which haven’t been rewritten by revisionists, and this is what you will uncover:

  • In 622 AD, Mohamed, a camel driver, saw the light. It was revealed to him through the divine voice of Gabriel while he was in a religious trance, worshipping in a cave.  From 622 AD until his death in 632 AD, Mohamed followed this light and inspired others to do the same. During the subsequent wars, designed to expand Mohamed’s control in the Arabian Peninsula, he and his followers slaughtered non-believers, kidnapped women and children, and stole their land and gold.
  • After his death, his followers continued in his footsteps. Through war, they spread Islam beyond the borders of the Arabian Peninsula into India, North Africa, and even Spain.
  • In 732 AD, Charles Martel halted Muslim advances into Europe during the Battle of Tours, France. This defeat in Europe, though, didn’t end Islamic expansion; the Muslims continued to crush the infidels in other areas of the world, taking advantage of every opportunity available to them to murder and enslave.
  • By the 9th century, they had conquered Syria, Palestine, Persia, and Egypt. They had a strong foothold across Northern Africa to Spain and Portugal. And they had defeated the Byzantine fleets and took control of the Mediterranean Sea.
  • In 1095, Pope Urban II became concerned about the Christians slaughtered during their pilgrimages to the Holy Lands. Determined to protect them and the Byzantine Empire’s influence in the area, he organized the support of European Christians and in 1096 proclaimed the first Crusade. The Crusades ended in 1291 with the Muslims controlling the Holy Lands until World War I.
  • In the 1890s, Abdul Hamid II, Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, savagely killed 300,000 Christians who dared to rebel against his enslavement of them. His actions, which received international attention, but no sanctions from the West, earned for him the title the Red Sultan.
  • During World War I, the Young Turks attempted to revive the decaying Ottoman Empire by creating a Turkey just for the Turks. What resulted was the savage genocide of millions of Christians. It is generally believed – though Turkish scholars and sympathizers will deny it – that this genocide inspired Hitler’s actions during World War II against the Jews. (The Infidels by Joe David is a well-researched book that focuses on the World War I genocide from the Assyrians’ point of view.)

During their wars and attacks against disbelievers, the Muslim method for eliminating infidels were often cruel and barbaric. In the book The Armenian Genocide, edited by Richard Hovannisian, Armenian scholar, Anahit Khosroeva writes the following about the World War I massacre:

The skulls of small children were smashed with rocks; the bodies of girls and women, who resisted rape or conversion into Moslems, were chopped into pieces live; men were mostly beheaded or thrown into the nearby river; the clergy, monks and nuns were skinned or burned live.

To achieve success in battle, the Muslims developed a system for rebuilding their military force. It was not uncommon for them to abduct young boys, often while still in their early teens, sometimes even younger, brainwash them and turn them into soldiers; pubescent girls were frequently used as whores for both pleasure and procreation. Any Christian captured who refused to convert by pronouncing Shahada, accepting the faith, were either killed in the most savage way imaginable or left to live in a Dar al-Harb (an abode of War).  In these abodes, they were reduced to dhimmi, non-Muslim citizens, denied personal rights and burdened with heavy taxes. In short, they were slaves to their captors.

In an article entitled ‘Genocide in the Middle East: The Ottoman Empire, Iraq, and Sudan’ (published Carolina Academic Press), Professor Hannibal Travis reveals the methods the Turks used to imprint their culture on Northern Cyprus after the invasion of 1974.

The Turks ethnically cleansed the north of the island, village by village . . . . Thousands of Turkish peasants were brought in from mainland Turkey to the New Turkish Republic of North Cyprus to take the place of the displaced Greeks . . . . The destruction of Greek heritages was an insurance against . . . (an) identifiably Greek . . . zone . . . .  In the months and years following (the invasion), all but a handful of northern Cyprus’s 502 Greek Orthodox churches, some of Byzantine origin, were vandalized, looted, demolished or put to a new uses including as mosques, stables, latrines, stores and a cinema . . . . The destruction was methodical . . .

(It was) so methodical and so widespread that (it) amount(ed) to the institutionalized obliteration of everything sacred to the Greek.

In reviewing the past, it is true, the Christians had committed their share of sins against man. During the Crusades, for example, enflamed by outrageous propaganda, Crusaders brutally murdered their share of Jews; also, during the Dark Ages, there was the Inquisition in Spain and the barbaric actions of Charlemagne while cleansing Europe of certain Christian groups. But of these atrocities, none have equaled what the Islamic army had consistently done – and is doing to this day.

Much of this information is easy to verify. Unfortunately, few western leaders willingly discuss it openly. For whatever reason, they either ignore it or dismiss it with political rhetoric. If this blindness to history continues, terrorism will become a way of life, which will eventually plunge the civilized world into a Dark Age, in which Sharia Law in all its madness will rule supreme.

To understand why so little has changed over the years, why the pattern and goal remains the same, you must turn to the Koran for answers. The most quoted verse is Sura 9:5 (kill the disbelievers wherever you find them). Other verses worthy of note can be found throughout the book (Suras 4:84, 9:73, 9:123, etc.). Such encouragement has given Orthodox Muslims the justification they need to fight.

Although Western sympathizers defend the Muslims in general by pointing to those who have joined the mainstream of Western Civilization, none of these sympathizers will seriously acknowledge the possibility that many of them may be cells, ready to become human bombs at a moment’s notice. 

Although, of course, not all Muslims are terrorists, the numbers that are are quite alarming. Conservative figures, for example, claim about 7 percent of the 2 billion Muslims around the world are jihadists; that’s about 140 million warriors for Allah. If you accept the figure that 25 percent of the Muslim population have admitted support of jihadist activities, the number of jihadists increases to about 500 million. Give them the atomic bomb, and you will have a conflagration you will never forget.

Some world leaders, by ignoring the past,  would like us to believe that Islam is a religion of peace, but nothing about Islam’s history suggests this. The Muslims have demonstrated repeatedly that Islam is a political ideology, disguised as a religion, committed to eliminating infidels. Anyone doubting this needs a fact-based history lesson.” Source – INN.

    “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

    Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.”
    (Luke 17:26-29 – KJV)

    “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
    (Genesis 6:5 – KJV) – – Please read the whole of Chapter 6:

    Me thinks that the whole world is becoming ever more and more rapidly. Look at the exponential increase of the Satanically inspired violence by the followers of Mohammed just in the last two weeks!
    My understanding is that we haven’t seen anything yet!
    There are rumors of planned attacks by the fundamental followers of ‘the peaceful religion’ of Mohammedanism that will make 9/11/01 look like a ‘walk in the park’

    – ‘as it was in the days of Noah and of Lot’ – IS TODAY – RIGHT NOW!


    For those who are truly CHRISTians it is a time of wondrous hope – for ‘End Time Prophesy’ is truly nearing fulfillment!!!
    May more true believers – CHRISTians – be active witnesses for our Saviour, “the LORD Jesus Christ” – leading lost souls unto Him – regardless of the personal cost – remembering that:
    “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
    (2 Pet 3:9 – KJV) – (also read 2 Tim 2:4 – KJV)

    “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.”
    (James 1:22 – KJV)

    Let CHRISTians always remember that ‘we’re just a pilgrim passin’ through this weary world’:
    “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”
    (Luke 21:28 – KJV)

    “The Muslims have demonstrated repeatedly that Islam is a political ideology, disguised as a religion, committed to eliminating infidels. Anyone doubting this needs a fact-based history lesson.” AMEN!!!

    If Christians don’t remember anything else about this article by Joe David, they need to let his closing statement (quoted above) really sink in. So many Westerners, Christian or otherwise, are so intent on dismissing the horrors of islam because they see it as a veritable religious experience. BUT ISLAM DOES NOT DESERVE THE DISTINCTION OF BEING CALLED A “RELGION”, per se. Islam is a deviant diabolical world persuasion of tyranny and total enslavement!

    If Christians will just stop mischaracterizing the wiles of the islamic system as a “religion” and call it what it is, in truth, a demonic system of diversion and hatred, they will be ten steps ahead in ridding the world of this scourge from the pit of hell!!!

    Anonymous, “Islam is not filled with all that bloodshed.there may be some bloodshed but not a lot.and quran verse 8:12 is talking about the battle of badr. The battle of badr is in islamic history.”

    Sura 8:12 is also an open-ended call for Muslims today. It is not confined to a specific place and specific time against a specific enemy only, evidenced by the very fact that the final marching orders of Mohammed as recorded in the Qur’an and Hadiths are for Muslims to wage war against non-Muslims until the whole earth submits to Islam and worships none but Islam’s deity.

    Hadith, Muslim 1:33a, “The Messenger of Allah [Mohammed] said: ‘I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Mohammad is the messenger of Allah, and they establish [Islamic] prayer …”

    Qur’an Sura 33:21, “Indeed in Allah’s Messenger (Mohammad) you have an excellent example to follow for him who hopes in (meeting with) Allah and the Last Day …”

    Qur’an Sura 8:39, “And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.”

    Hadith, Muslim 2889, “Verily Allah has shown me the eastern and western part of the earth, and I saw the authority of my Ummah (Islamic nation) dominate all that I saw.

    Qur’an Sura 9:5, 11, “… fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers … But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then are they your brethren in religion.”

    This is reflected ALL throughout Islamic history:

    “Allah says: ‘There is no compulsion in religion’, meaning: do not force anyone to embrace Islam, because it is clear and its proofs and evidences are manifest. Whoever Allah guides and opens his heart to Islam has indeed embraced it with clear evidence. Whoever Allah misguides blinds his heart and has set a seal on his hearing and a covering on his eyes cannot embrace Islam by force… hence Allah revealed this verse. But, this verse is abrogated by the verse of ‘fighting… Therefore, all people of the world should be called to Islam. If anyone of them refuses to do so, or refuses to pay the Jizya they should be fought till they are killed. This is the meaning of compulsion. In the Sahih, the Prophet said: ‘Allah wonders at those people who will enter Paradise in chains’, meaning prisoners brought in chains to the Islamic state, then they embrace Islam sincerely and become righteous, and are entered among the people of Paradise.” (Tafsir of Ibn Kathir, Al-Firdous Ltd., London, 1999: First Edition, Part 3, pp. 37-38).

    “When one thinks of mass murder, Hitler comes to mind. If not Hitler, then Tojo, Stalin, or Mao. Credit is given to the 20th-century totalitarians as the worst species of tyranny to have ever arisen. However, the alarming truth is that Islam has killed more than any of these, and may surpass all of them combined in numbers and cruelty. The enormity of the slaughters of the ‘religion of peace’ are so far beyond comprehension that even honest historians overlook the scale. When one looks beyond our myopic focus, Islam is the greatest killing machine in the history of mankind, bar none.” (Read more).

    Jihad destroyed a Christian Middle East and a Christian North Africa. Soon it was the fate of the Persian Zoroastrian and the Hindu to be the victims of jihad. The history of political Islam is the destruction of Christianity in the Middle East, Egypt, Turkey and North Africa. Half of Christianity was lost. Before Islam, North Africa was the southern part of Europe (part of the Roman Empire). Around 60 million Christians were slaughtered during the jihadic conquest… The Jews became permanent dhimmis throughout Islam. In Africa over 120 million Christians and animists have died over the last 1400 years of jihad. Approximately 270 million nonbelievers died over the last 1400 years for the glory of political Islam. These are the Tears of Jihad which are not taught in any school.” (Read more).

    “Let’s speak of facts. Sudan is not in the conventional Middle East, so let’s ignore the genocide there. Let’s ignore, also, the West Pakistani massacres in East Pakistan (Bangladesh) totaling 1.25 million in 1971. Or 200,000 deaths in Algeria in war between Islamists and the government in 1991-2006. But a simple, strictly Middle East research will give you one million deaths in the all-Muslim Iran-Iraq war; 300,000 Muslim minorities killed by Saddam Hussein; 80,000 Iranians killed during the Islamic revolution; 25,000 deaths in 1970-71, the days of Black September, by the Jordanian government in its fight against the Palestinians; and 20,000 Islamists killed in 1982 by the elder al-Assad in Hama. The World Health Organization’s estimate of Osama bin Laden’s carnage in Iraq was already 150,000 a few years earlier. In a 2007 research, Gunnar Heinsohn from the University of Bremen and Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, found out that some 11 million Muslims have been violently killed since 1948, of which 35,000, (0.3 percent) died during the six years of Arab war against Israel, or one out of every 315 fatalities. In contrast, over 90 percent who perished were killed by fellow Muslims.” (Muslim Source – Hurriyet Daily News).

      @Seemab. Hahaha! You are such a joke! One thing I can assure you is that ICA has done his homework and does not “write just for the sake of writing”–which is clearly what YOU have done here!!! This article is all about the RESEARCH done by ICA and it is proof positive of the vile horrific history of islam and its adherents–a history which is totally apparent to anyone who cares to OPEN HIS EYES AND SEE!!!!

    Seemab, “… before writing a blog u should have done some research …”

    Hi Seemab, thank you for your reply. Yes, I do plenty of research. I study the teachings of Islam through the lens of logic and reason and compare the teachings of Islam with the teachings of Christianity.

    Seemab, “… if u were in the right path u simply wouldn’t have written the things …”

    To the contrary. I write the things I do about Islam because I am on the right path.

    Ephesians 5:11, “… have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”

    Psalm 119:105, “Thy word [the Word of Yahweh, not Allah’s] is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”

    Proverbs 4:14, 10:6, “Do not enter the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of evil… Blessings are on the head of the righteous, but violence covers the mouth of the wicked.”

    Islam calls for perpetual violence, for open-ended warfare against “non-believers.” Islam is wickedness in the eyes of God.

    Hadith, Bukhari 2977, “I have been made victorious with terror” – The “Prophet” Of Islam, Mohammed

    Qur’an Sura 9:111, “… They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed …”

    Hadith, Bukhari 52:54, “[Mohammed said] I would love to be martyred in Allah’s Cause and then get resurrected and then get martyred, and then get resurrected again and then get martyred and then get resurrected again and then get martyred.”

    Qur’an: Sura 4:89, “… Kill the unbelievers [non-Muslims] wherever you find them …”

    Qur’an Sura 8:39, “And fight with them until … religion should be only for Allah …”

    Seemab, “… few black sheeps of islam who misrepresent islam …”

    Who are the “black sheeps” misrepresenting Islam? Is it the ones who are violent because of the teachings of Islam, or the ones who are peaceful in spite of them?

    Seemab, “From which source did u get all this rubbish information …”

    The Qur’an. The Hadiths. Islamic scholars. Muslim teachers. Islamic writers. Muslim clerics. Islamic history. Can you please provide a few examples of what you specifically believe to be “rubbish” and “wrong”? I look forward to your reply.
