The Middle Ages was an era of enormous artistic output. Archaeology has only revealed a small tithe of what existed. Plunder, destruction, theft and lost treasure unfortunately impoverish our modern understanding of the artistic impulse of this period. Likely no more than 2% of what was produced from 500-1000 AD has been recovered. But even this fractional amount reveals an astonishing society of wealth, culture and creativity.
A good history of Anglo-Saxon and early Anglo-Saxon English art can be found here.
Witness the genius of this Anglo-Saxon shoulder clasp: possibly the highest standard of European jewellery art ever found. Not until modern kilns were developed could reproductions of what lies buried at Sutton be made, such was the intricacy of this and other artifacts. Only a sophisticated, wealthy, active and industrializing society, could produce Anglo-Saxon art.
The oldest surviving example of a stained glass window, which reaches back into the time of the 7th century rests in Jarrow England. The English historian Bede would have seen this particular display of genius. Stained glass manufacture is incredibly complicated. No other society in the world developed this art form.
“Glass is made by fusing together some form of silica such as sand, an alkali such as potash or soda, and lime or lead oxide. The color is produced by adding a metallic oxide to the raw materials. Copper oxide, under different conditions, produces ruby, blue, or green colors in glass. Cobalt is usually used to produce most shades of blues. Green shades can also be obtained from the addition of chromium and iron oxide. Golden glass is sometimes colored with uranium, cadmium sulfide, or titanium, and there are fine selenium yellows as well as vermilions. Ruby colored glass is made by adding gold.”
But remember all was dark. No light shone. Only Islam, Galileo and Voltaire would stand athwart the path to the abyss.....which is why Moslems never produced art to match Sutton Hoo or a stained glass window and Voltaire et al could not replicate the processes of discovery to make something as intricate or redoubtable as a Sutton Hoo bracelet. This is why they were so enlightened.
Show me the Moslem equivalent.
The Lindisfarne gospels were created in the late 7th century by Catholic monks in their north-eastern England retreat. One monk in particular Eadfrith, is credited with the astonishing artwork, without precedent in Europe. Next to the Book of Kells [see here], the decorated Lindisfarne manuscript laid out on vellum, elaborately furnished with intricate artwork of staggering detail, is one of the world's greatest works of art. It stands along with the Book of Kells as an unrivalled testimony to religion and civilization. Dedicated to the 4 gospel writers, this middle-ages manifest is a dedication to beauty, truth, awareness and supreme culture. It combines the essence of European art with a distinctly Anglo-Saxon skill and view of the world.
An audio and book translation can be found here.
“The Lindisfarne Gospels, one of the most magnificent manuscripts of the early Middle Ages, was written and decorated at the end of the 7th century by the monk Eadfrith, who became Bishop of Lindisfarne in 698 and died in 721. Its original leather binding, long since lost, was made by Ethelwald, who succeeded Eadfrith as bishop, and was decorated with jewels and precious metals later in the 8th century by Billfrith the Anchorite. The Latin text of the Gospels is translated word by word in an Old English gloss, the earliest surviving example of the Gospel text in any form of the English language, it was added between the lines in the mid 10th century by Aldred, Provost of Chester-le-Street. Today the manuscript is once again bound in silver and jewels, in covers made in 1852 at the expense of Edward Maltby, Bishop of Durham. The design is based on motifs drawn from the decoration of the manuscript itself....”
But remember, before sundry fat and ignorant atheists such as Gibbon, Diderot, Voltaire or Hume, or the fraud of all trades Galileo, Europe stank in a 'dark age'. Superstition and stupidity reigned, art and society had collapsed. Nothing of value was manufactured. Only Islam kept the candle of civilization burning.....and all awaited the grand entrance of the 17th century and the age of science [along with witch-burning, abiogenesis, the occult, Puritanism, Spanish insolvency, the 30 years war to control Germany...].
So the propaganda tells us.
Partial list of Moslem assaults just against US assets, citizens or territory. By all means live in the fiction that the cult of Muhammad is peace and love. Let's juxtapose this list against the 'terror' incidents incited by Catholics – all zero of them. Source and bold highlights are mine.
Tarek Fatah is a Canadian Moslem – sort of - who is deeply worried about a 'parallel' Moslem state developing in Canada, full of Moslem civilization including the slaughter of daughters, 3 wives, bedsheets for female slaves and chattel, and the requisite beheading of Jews and Christians. All in the name of the Multi-culti that everyone is so in love with. Diversity and all that.
He wrote a book some time ago, laughing at the idea of a Moslem Caliphate. It was entitled 'Chasing a Mirage'. I reviewed it and he was none to pleased about my comments. Today however, I doubt that 2.500 dead Christians in Iraq and Syria during the past few months would believe ISIS' Caliphate is a mirage. 45 Churches and counting, thousands of dead Christians, many more raped and exiled, all by Moslems from ISIS which is after all, only implementing Koranic law.
My review of Fatah's book included the obvious observation:
“Fatah is a devout Muslim and earnestly believes that Islamic faith in its benign form is compatible with Western civilisation. On this and many other points in his book he is wrong. The importance of his book is that he presents a historical and world view which demands Muslim reform and a rejection of extremist political Islam. On this issue hangs the future balance of Western-Muslim relations. It is up to Muslims to reform their ideology.”
Moslems will never reform Islam. It is incompatible with human civilization. There is no Carolingian-12th century Renaissance within Islam. There is no 10th-14th century explosion of technology, science, and real-world applicability to theology. There is no development of faith leading to reason; and reason being used to justify faith. For Moslems and the Koran it is violence, coercion, hate, hell-fire for the Infidel, and the declamation obtained from Muhammad, to crucify and execute the Jews, Christians and the insufficiently pious Moslem [5:33].
As I remarked whilst reviewing his book:
“Islam is of course an ideology, not a faith. This is something that Fatah a practicing Muslim would reject. But at least he and others can recognise the inherent fascistic intolerance and will to rule embedded in the Koran and in political Islam. Fatah is simply sick to death of the intolerant elements of his 'faith'. His book is an attempt to wake up Muslims to the extremist agendas being fostered not only on Muslims, but also on non-Muslims within the West. Fundamentalist Islam is alive and doing very well within Western states. Wahabbist, neo-Salafist, and Anti-Semitic doctrines are common place throughout Mosques in the West. Few Muslims bother to criticise these practices and fewer still will do anything to try and reform their so-called 'faith'. What kind of ideology is without a reformation, self criticism or searching analysis ? Is it a faith or an intolerant cult ?
Fatah sums up the intolerant nature of Islam: "You have been lied to for centuries. Muslims need to educate themselves about Islam, not proselytize their religion to non-Muslims. It is time for them to read the truth about Islamic history......They should stop glorifying the politicization of Islam, a phenomenon which has produced a panaroma of tragedies and bloodshed..."
ISIS and the new Caliphate is the manifestation of true Islam. ISIS and Islam are both without borders. The Moslem Caliphate like spilt water on a flat surface, will continue to spread until confronted by obstacles and immovable forces. The Western world is certainly not going to do anything to slow down the expansion of this new Caliphate.
The Koran openly plagiarizes – poorly it should be said – much of the Torah. Judaic theology is thus corrupted for Muhammadan usage. The same is true of the Moslem plunder of the Christian gospel, attempted perhaps at a lesser rate than that of the Old Testament. There are 2 important points to consider in the Moslem corruption of the Christian texts and their inclusion in the gibberish of the Koran.
The first is that part of Muhammad's band of brigands at one time fled to Christian Ethiopia where, in good Christian fashion, they were ironically protected from their Meccan persecutors. Christians would be accorded no such tolerance by Muhammadans of course as the cult of Mecca would soon begin a 1400 Jihad of Christian slaughter and rape. In Ethiopia the Moslems or Muhammadans would have picked up scraps and bits of the Gospel. Being illiterate, their recounting of such verses was bound to be imprecise and garbled. Their bards and those who helped inform the Koran, would have supplied this apocryphal text.
Secondly, there existed in Muhammad's Arabia, quite a few 'heretical' Christian sects. Mary worship and even idolatory was widespread. Other forms of perverted Christianity were also rife. There was no 'Catholic' ideal of Christianity as presented today. Christian theology was riven and disputed. The cult of Muhammad invariably would have come into contact with these heretical sects and would have appropriated their incorrect ideas about the Christian faith into their own belief systems. The Koran is in the main after-all, a statement of supremacy, as to why the Jewish and Christian faiths are incorrect and immoral; and why the Koran and Muhammadism is the only 'correct' view of theology.
The Muhammadans incorporated many Christian superstitions into the Koran, wrongly believing them to be true Gospel. Few Christians who actually understood the veracity of the Gospels converted to the Muhammad's cult. By 632 AD most Christians in Arabia, were either dead or exiled. Some of Muhammad's sex-slaves, Mary the Copt for example, were within the Moslem cult; and most likely had some appreciation of the true nature of the gospel. But their influence was marginal and temporary. What enters the Koran is the superstition and invalidated forms of cultish-Christian belief, which were common in the various sects which populated Muhammadan Arabia. The true gospel never makes an appearance to either Muhammad or his Koranic scribblers.
[From Goldsack, Chapter 3, on the Gospels in the Koran]
“that many other of the doctrines of the Qur'an such as the denial of the death of Christ, the resolving the Christian Trinity into a tri-theism consisting of the Father, the Son and the Virgin Mary were derived by Muhammad from the Gnostic and other heretical sects of Christians who flourished in Arabia in his time....much of the Qur'an can be traced to Apocryphal Christian sources; whilst the Christian reader will also perceive how false is the claim that the former "confirms" the preceding scriptures - the Taurat and Injil..”
This is why the Christian gospel is so mis-shapened, mal-formed and degraded within Mein Koran.
Anglican Reverend Forster who wrote an informative work on Mahomet or Muhammad  was no friend of the Catholics. He devotes an entire chapter – in good English Anglican tradition and exaggeration – on the tyranny of 'Popery'. As deluded as Weber's “Protestant Work Ethic”, in which 1000 years of Medieval invention and change is studiously ignored, or Gibbon's claim that Christianity 'pacified' Rome and caused its 'Fall'. Rome never fell, it was carved up into 3 Germanic kingdoms, and it died a thankful and belated death due to civil war, inflation, bureaucracy, taxation and corruption. The benefits of despotic governance that everyone seems so besotted by in the 21rst century.
Forster quotes Church-hater Gibbon in assessing the cult of Muhammad. Basically Gibbon rightly observes that Mahometism is a debased, degraded form of uncivilized cult worship, devoid of anything uplifting or intelligent.
The cult uber alles.
Forster also goes to pains to show that Mahometism simply stole from the Bible. Much of the garbled gibberish that makes up the Koran is a warped regurgitation of what is found in the holy book. One example amongst hundreds suffices in which Paul's Chapter 12 in Corinthians 1, is bastardized and parodied within the Koran, obviously by scribes who were unfamiliar with the actual content.
The actual text of Paul's letter is here. It bears no resemblance to the Jihadic utterance above which is a threat against both the Jews and Christians.
Forster rightly condemns Mahometism for what it truly is – a cult of violence, plagiarism, illogicality, hate and war. I doubt he would be invited to polite dinner parties in today's multicultural, Islamophiliac London.
The Koran, Muhammad's madness named 'Recital', is mainly composed of two parts. The first is the vast pillaging from the Bible, usually incorrectly, and with attribution to HuBaal the Lord moon deity of Mecca. Local Bedouin poems and verses, long in existence, were also appropriated en masse and thrown as a jumble-mash into the Koran. The short 'Suras' are evidence of this. The second purpose of the Koran is to demand obeisance and slavery to Muhammad [in the name of HuBaal], whilst demonizing the untermensch Jew and Christian. 1600 verses of hate speech attest t this fact.
Forster in his work, Mahometanism: A Study, discusses Koranic plagiarism, which is so rife and obvious, that only Moslems and Phd Marxist Academics in Western lower-education schools could miss it, he writes:
“..among the many marks discernible in the Koran of designed and studied plagiarism from the Scripture.”
You don't need to be an evangelical crank to make this claim. Forster goes on to list page after page the plagiarism of the Koran.
Western 'experts' deem theft the highest form of revealed theological truth.
The Koran has nothing in common with either the Old or New Testament. It is of course quite similar in its dichotomous language and vicious system of punishment, to many ancient Bronze and early Iron age theologies. Given that ancient Arabia was culturally colonized by Babylonia, giving rise to the Babylonian Sin or Baal as the main Lord [allah] of Mecca; and the first Babylonian codex the system of 'an for an eye' [Sura 5:45] which is the mainstay of Sharia [along with stoning, crucifying, cutting off of limbs], the linkages between Bronze Age Mesopotamia with the wastelands of the Bedouin should not be a surprise.
The Old Testament is composed of 3 essential parts. The first are the laws, the thou-shalls and the shall nots, which are unique in world history. Parables and wisdom from Psalms, Sirach, Job and Proverbs reinforce proper attributes and virtue. The second is the most accurate history imaginable of the Bronze and Iron ages, as proven by archaeology and non Biblical extant literature, a compendium of life, kings, wars and empires; not to mention the geological proof of a global flood. The third part is that of prophecy and the visions, predictions and laments of the prophets, with much vivid suffering, soul-searching and questioning of divine intent. Jeremiah and Isiah are classic exemplars of this genre.
The Koran certainly has no similarity with the New Testament. The golden rule never makes an appearance in the Koran, and the examples of Christ and Muhammad are polar opposites, with Muhammad very much in the role as the antithesis or anti-Christ, in his actions, words and blood soaked life. There might be a passing similarity between the Koran and the Old Testament. But this is also facetious and inaccurate.
The Koran purloins Old Testament tracts, especially the life of Moses, usually misunderstanding the original text, corrupting it, and deciding that in any event the story simply supports the omniscience and power of the Meccan HuBaal [Allah]. While the plagiarism is rife, the Koranic theft of Old Testament material means that the thieves were not adequately acquainted with the subject matter.
The only similarity one can see in reading Mein Koran and the Old Testament is the list of do's and do not's. But here the difference is stark. In the Old Testament the Hebrews, who are supposed to be the priests for God, in their zeal to disobey and worship idols, or ignore the commandments, are routinely punished for their misdeeds and unbelief. The prophets spend a great deal of energy and activity in trying to force the lost Hebrew sheep back to the good shepherd; or to issue forth declamations of disaster if repentance is not soon at hand. In any event the subject matter is the conduct of Hebrews, and those who should be following God; and what will happen if the Lord is rejected.
The Koran is entirely dissimilar. The history is meagre and disjointed. There are no prophets. The injunctions of woe are directed solely at Jews, Christian, unbelievers as well as those Moslems who are not following the Koran closely enough. The most important theme of the Koran is that Moslems must faithfully and completely follow the Koran and Muhammad's demands. Non-Moslems are to be destroyed both in this life by Moslems; and shall be tortured and committed to hell-fire by HuBaal or Allah in the next. Yet the Koran is also quite clear that Moslems must be nice to fellow cult members. It is expected that all Moslems will eventually, fully return to the totalitarian dogma of the Koran and Sharia.
The Old Testament's legal code is of course not the same as the Koran's. The 'eye for an eye' comes out of Babylon and is the mainstay of Moslem judicial procedure. This is why there is still widespread in the Moslem world such absurd physical violence and death in contravention of Koranic-Sharia law. Nothing has changed since 1750 BC Babylon. In the Old Testament this Bronze Age devotion to violence as a just punishment, is superseded by the 10 commands of Moses. Violence is still apparent – stoning, and even death for Christ and others who are claimed to be false prophets or who break the code of the Temple – but this is tempered in comparison with the blood demanded by Moslem Sharia.
Thankfully the New Testament abrogates the violence of the Old, by demanding a new vision of the human, the ending of blood in resolving disputes, and the sanctity of life, even of those condemned. You will never see the articles of the New Testament within the Bronze Age legal codex of Islam. Never.
When Moslems invade, conquer, or settle en-masse in a given area, infidel monuments are eradicated. Churches, artwork, libraries, the Twin Towers, or any artifice which expresses a prominent and important non-Koranic view of the world is disposed of. When the Moslem Jihad irrupted in its fascist zeal in 632 AD from the uncivilized wastes of moon-worshipping Bedouin country, and spread like a cancer from Syria to Southern France, some 30.000 churches were pulled-down, or converted into mosques. Today 'intellectuals' with Phd's would define such atrocity as an expression of inter-faith harmony and a 'golden age' of Moslem architecture.
In another article I have listed a partial account of Moslem annihilation of Infidel shrines. Many more could be added. Two of the holiest Christian sites in history were used by Moslems – the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, and the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople. The latter is now a museum.
Academics and 'experts' have determined that demolishing shrines, charging ransom to enter the rebuilt [at your cost] pilgrimage site, and converting sacred structures into mosques whose work is performed by second-class Jewish and Christian slaves, manifests a wonderfully tolerant and open society, devoid of hate and bile.
Today in Iraq we have just around Mosul and stretching out to the West and South, at least 45 churches destroyed by the Moslem Fascists ISIS. Not a word in the main-stream media. Nary a demonstration anywhere in the world, by 'moderate' Moslems declaiming against the eradication of Christianity in its ancient heartland. I would guess that most Moslems are proud, happy, drenched in a supremacist neo-Nazi glow of inviolate glory; as their cult follows Sura 5:33:
“The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter.”
You won't hear 'experts' and academics repeat the above Jihadic refrain, even as Moslems kill, execute, humiliate and crucify Christians.
Why do Moslems murder Christians? Too many are ignorant of the Meccan cult's impetus and energy. The question is answered by Moslem liturgy and its founder; and is expressed in a 1400 year Jihad by the cult of Submission against 'People of the Book' – the competitors to Muhammadism. As with Jews, Christians can only be tolerated if they submit to their Moslem masters. The superiority of Christianity in both theological and civilizational terms cannot be tolerated by Moslems. There is no desire for accommodation or harmony within the cult of Mecca.
Islam is the construct of Fuehrer worship, in which the Meccan Baal known as the Lord or ilah of the Arab tribes; is conflated with, and at times in the Koran replaced by, the personage of Muhammad. As with Hitler, Stalin and other evolutionists, atheist or fascist-totalitarian leaders, total control was the key objective of Muhammad's program. Rape, killing, plunder, sex-slavery, polygamy, and accruing gold and silver were the main concerns in the lust for complete power. All the easier to pay off brigands and thugs who follow the program – the mercenaries of the cult. Ethics do not make an appearance in the book Recital [Koran], unless you believe that being nice to Moslems and 'ruthless' to non-Moslems is an ethical code. The only 'nice' phrases about Jews and Christians [about half a dozen]; are linked to their complete submission to Moslems. Juxtaposed against this are 1600 verses of hate speech against the 'inferior apes and pigs' of the 'Book'.
Sura 79 in the Koran for example is titled 'Tearing out'. Tearing out what you might ask ? The weeds of Christ's parable of the seed ? Tearing out our prejudices and egos? Tearing out Christ's log from our own eye ? Tearing out the demons which possess our flesh ? Of course not. For Moslems you tear out the hearts of Christians and Jews. If the average Moslem, raised in the usual illiterate, non-culture of a deformed Moslem society reads Sura 79 they naturally assume that 'god' has pre-ordained the destruction of Jews and Christians. So why not kill them ?
If you don't believe in the Lord Allah, doom is upon you.
Allah will give 'recompense' to the Jews and Christians who rejected the word of Muhammad:
Transgression in Islam simply means to disobey Muhammadan or Koranic-Sharia law. That is it. It does not mean 'transgressing' an ethical code. None exists in the Koran to transgress. Koranic-Muhammadan law is simple: follow whatever Muhammad says and does. Period. For Jews and Christians not doing so means that angels will rip out your hearts. To the average Moslem this 'godly command' surely gives them license to kill the hated Jew and Christian ?
In both the confessing and evangelical Churches there are too many brain-dead apologists for the Meccan cult of death, dedicated as it is, to the complete eradication of Christianity. The rot in the confessing and professing Church starts at the top in the Vatican and streams down in great waves to the local clergy. The entire structure is terrified to criticize Muhammad's cult. Supine, stupid and stunned they gape while hundreds of thousands of Christians in the birthplace of their religion are being lined up for a faith-genocide by Moslems.

All courtesy of Islam, the cult of death.
Moslem fascism embedded in its liturgical books, demands the absolute destruction of Jews and Christians. If you read Muhammadan theology for yourself, separated from lame-brain media brainwashing, and public school disinformation; this fact will make itself present in a most sickening and virulent manner. Consider some of the 'commentaries' or Hadiths, which run alongside Mein Koran, by Moslem 'theologians' [ie cult propagandists], such as Ishaq and Tabari.
Ishaq was an early 8th century propagandist for the Abbasid totalitarianism, named by some as a 'Caliphate'. He wrote the first biography of Fuehrer Muhammad, who in the eyes of the moon deity Allah, was the man uber-alles. Born some 75 years or so after the mad-man's death, Ishaq put together accounts of Muhammad's actions during his reign of terror, from second-hand sources. It makes unpleasant reading.
"Do you love Jews and their religion, you liver-hearted ass, and not Muhammad? Their religion will never march with ours.... Jews make false professions about Islam. So Allah sent down: 'Satan wishes to lead them astray."
"Allah increases their sickness. A tormented doom awaits the Jews. Allah said, 'They are mischief makers. They are fools. The Jews deny the truth and contradict what the Apostle has brought. I will mock them and let them continue to wander blindly.'"
Tabari, applauded by big-brains as the 'most important Moslem historian ever', was a mid-9th century Moslem who extended the Hadith commentaries. As Shakespeare was a Tudor propagandist, so too was Tabari a product of his times and his 'history' is nothing less than a fictional recitation of Moslem supremacy [much of Shakespeare should be viewed in the same vein].
Below are some verses from Ishaq and Tabari related to the Jews as viewed by Moslems and Muhammad. Notice the bile, the hate, the intolerance, the lust for their destruction.
Next we will hear that Nazi theological apologist Rosenberg, was 'a great historian'.
"A notable Jew spoke to the Apostle, twisting his tongue. He attacked Islam and reviled it, so Allah sent down, 'Allah knows best about your enemies. Some of the Jews change words from their contexts and say: "We hear and disobey," twisting their tongues and attacking the religion so Allah cursed them.'"
"Ali struck the Jew with a swift blow that split his helmet, neck protector, and head, landing in his rear teeth. And the Muslims entered the city. Muhammad conquered the [Jewish] neighborhood. Safiyah was brought to him, and another woman with her. Bilal led them past some of the Jews we had slain including the woman's dead husband. When she saw them, the woman with Safiyah cried out, slapped her face, and poured dust on her head. When Allah's Prophet saw her, he said, 'Take this she-devil away from me!'"
"The Messenger said during his final illness, 'Two religions cannot coexist in the Arabian Peninsula.' Umar investigated the matter, then sent to the Jews, saying: 'Allah has given permission for you to be expelled; for I have received word that the Prophet said that two religions cannot coexist in Arabia."
"Khaybar [Jewish oasis town] was stormed by the Apostle's squadron, fully armed, powerful, and strong. It brought certain humiliation with Muslim men in its midst. We attacked and they met their doom. Muhammad conquered the Jews in fighting that day as they opened their eyes to our dust."
"We cannot accept the oaths of Jews. Their infidelity is so great they swear falsely."
"The Jews were made to come down, and Allah's Messenger imprisoned them. Then the Prophet went out into the marketplace of Medina, and he had trenches dug in it. He sent for the Jewish men and had them beheaded in those trenches. They were brought out to him in batches. They numbered 800 to 900 boys and men."
"The Messenger of Allah commanded that all of the Jewish men and boys who had reached puberty should be beheaded. Then the Prophet divided the wealth, wives, and children of the Banu Qurayza Jews among the Muslims."
Much more exists in the 'histories' of Tabari and Ishaq related to hate speech, Jihad, and the murdering of Jews and Christians. At least we can thank them for their frank honesty. We can see that Muhammad murdered Jews with military might, trickery, his own hands and slaughtered innocents, whilst raping Jewish women. Moslems and their devoted multi-cult minions characterize such actions as 'religious', 'prophetic', and 'ethical'. What a pathetic group of brain-addled morons they must be.
Why have Moslems been slaughtering Jews for 1400 years ? Why do Moslems call Jews filthy apes despised [7:166, 2:64], or pigs [5:59] ? Why do Moslem mothers in Gaza and elsewhere dance in delight when Jews are killed by their fascist cult ? Read the Koran. It demands the extirpation of Jews and Christians. From Mein Koran I have listed some of the more lurid anti-Jew verses, culled from a catalogue of 1600 or so hate-speech verses against Jews and Christians. The big-brains and Moselmophiles will call the following 'misunderstood', 'poorly translated', 'taken out of context', 'inflammatory'. They are all morons.
7:166 – “So when they exceeded the limits of what they were prohibited, We said to them: "Be you monkeys, despised and rejected." (It is a severe warning to the mankind that they should not disobey what Allah commands them to do, and be far away from what He prohibits them).”
The below list comprises an example of 25 anti-semitic hate verses. Moslem non-culture is suffused with Jew-hate. So too was Nazism.
"[Jews] Perform prayer; pay the zakat tax; bow down and prostrate yourself with Ar-Raki'un (the obedient bowers). You read, recite, and study the Scripture. Why don't you understand? Nay, seek [Islamic prostration] prayer: It is indeed hard, heavy, and exacting, except for those who obey in submission."
"The [Jewish] transgressors changed and perverted the word from that which had been spoken to them to a word distorted; so We sent a plague upon them from heaven, for their evil-doing."
"Humiliation and wretchedness were stamped upon the Jews and they were visited with wrath from Allah. That was because they disbelieved Allah's Proofs, Signs and Verses and killed the prophets. They disobeyed and rebelled."
"But you [Jews] went back on your word and were lost losers. You know that you have broken the sanctity of the Sabbath, so We said: 'Become monkeys despised and hated.' We made this punishment an example and a warning for those who fear Allah."
"But woe to the Jews who fake the Scriptures and say, 'This is from God,' so that they might earn some profit thereby.' And woe to them for what their hands have written, and woe to them for what they earn from it.'"
"Yet they (Jews) say: 'The Fire will not touch us for more than a few days...but they are enclosed in error and are inmates of Hell."
"Do you [Jews] believe a part of the Book and reject a part? There is no reward for them who so act but disgrace in the world, and on the Day of Doom, the severest of punishment...their torment will never decrease!"
"The Book was sent to them (the Jews) by Allah verifying and confirming what had been revealed to them already (the Torah and Gospel). They used to pray for victory over the unbelievers - and even though they recognized it when it came to them, they renounced it. The curse of Allah be on those who deny!"
"When there came a messenger from Allah confirming what was with them, a party of the people of the (Torah and Gospel) Scripture Book fling away the Book of Allah, tossing it behind their backs, as if they did not know!"
"Quite a number of the People of the Book wish they could turn you [Muslim] (people) back to infidelity after you have believed [submitted], through selfish envy, even after the Truth has become manifest to them. Indulge them until Allah issues his orders."
"But because of their breach of their covenant We cursed the Jews, and made their hearts grow hard. They change the words from their (right) places [the illiterate prophet pronounced] and forget and abandon a good part of the message that was sent them. Nor will you cease to find deceit in them. And because of their breaking their covenant We have cursed them. They altered words from their context and they neglected a portion of the message they were reminded of."
"Or it be among the Jews, men who will listen to any lie. They change the context of the words from their (right) times and places.... For them there is disgrace in this world, and in the Hereafter a heavy punishment.""
"They are fond of listening to falsehood, of devouring anything forbidden; they are greedy for illicit gain!"
"It was We who revealed the Torah. By its standard the prophets judged the Jews, and the prophets bowed (in Islam) to Allah's will, surrendering. For the rabbis and priests: to them was entrusted the protection of Allah's Scripture Book; they were witnesses of it. Therefore fear not men, but fear Me, and sell not My revelations for a miserable price."
"The Jews say: 'Allah's hands are fettered.' Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for the blasphemy they utter. Nay, both His hands are widely outstretched, giving [Muslims Jewish booty] as He pleases. Amongst them we have placed enmity and hatred till the Day of Doom. Every time they kindle the fire of war, Allah does extinguish it. But they strive to do mischief on earth."
"You see many of them allying themselves with the unbelieving infidels. Vile indeed are their souls. Allah's wrath is on them, and in torment will they abide."
"If only they had believed in Allah, in the Prophet, and in what had been revealed to him."
"You will find the Jews and disbelievers [defined as Christians in 5:73] the most vehement in hatred for the Muslims."
"Allah took down the People of the Scripture Book. He cast terror into their hearts. Some you slew, and some you made prisoners. And He made you heirs of their lands, their houses, and their goods, giving you a land which you had not traversed before." [Version two:] "And He drove the People of the Scripture down from their homes and cast panic into their hearts. Some you killed, and you made some captive. And He caused you to inherit their farms, houses, wealth, and land you have not trodden."
"What Allah gave as booty to His Messenger, He has taken away from the Jews. Allah gives His Messenger Lordship over whom He will. Whatever booty Allah has given to Muhammad and taken away from the (Jewish) people of the townships, belongs to Allah and to His Apostle."
"The Jews will not unite and fight against you except from behind walls. They hate themselves. You would think they were united, but their hearts are divided. That is because these [Jews] are a people devoid of sense. Like those who recently preceded them [the Meccans at Badr], they [the Jews who were just sent into the desert to die] have tasted the evil result of their conduct. And for them a grievous punishment."
"They [the Jews] are like Satan when he tells man, 'Not to believe,' When (man) denies, Satan says, 'I have nothing to do with you. I fear Allah, the Lord of men and jinn!'"
"Both [Jews and Satan] will go into the Fire of Hell, dwelling therein forever. Such is the reward of the Zalimun (disbelievers and polytheists)."
"The likeness of those who are entrusted with the Taurat (Torah), who subsequently failed in those (obligations), is that of an ass which carries huge books (but understands them not). Wretched is the likeness of folk who deny the Verses of Allah."
"Say: 'You Jews! If you think that you are friends to Allah, to the exclusion of (other) men, then desire death, if you are truthful!' But never will they long (for death), because of what their hands have done before them! Allah knows well the polytheists! Say: 'The Death from which you flee will truly overtake you.'"
“Renaissance of the Twelfth Century” has been called the greatest of all such revivals, in that it marked the greatest progress within the shortest period of time. It was centered especially in the school of Chartres, under the direction of John of Salisbury, a Platonist who loved classical literature. But before long, intellectual life moved in a different direction from the Humanism of Salisbury, who warned that the emphasis on logic would bring about a decline in the study of the liberal arts, by making them seem insufficiently rigorous." [From Hitchcock's 'History of the Catholic Church']
One of the most important Western philosophers, and unfortunately one who is rarely studied is Anselm of Canterbury. Anselm lived from 1033-1109 and is a pre-cursor of the '12th century Renaissance', which was in part an era of scientific, mathematical, logical and rational innovation. As with all 'revolutions' the antecedents of what causes change and improvement are usually very long indeed. From the 11th century onwards, indeed from the time of Charlemagne we can see that Church dogma, far from discouraging invention and enquiry, actively promoted it. Anselm's ontological arguments for the existence of God were based on reality, reason as well as faith. All of these concepts were current and percolating throughout the width and breadth of Christendom in the 11th century. Anselm did not invent his theological philosophy from nothing. Lanfranc and others were merging rationality into Church doctrine.
“Anselm began his education under the tutelage of the monks of a local Benedictine monastery. After his mother passed away, Anselm observed a period of grief and mourning and then travelled throughout Europe. At that time, the spiritual and intellectual reputation of the monk Lanfranc, who belonged to the monastery of Bec in Normandy, was widespread. Anselm was drawn to Lanfranc, and in 1060 attached himself to Lanfranc's abbey. The community immediately recognized Anselm's unique abilities and he was soon teaching in the abbey school. He was made prior of the monastery in 1063.
It was Anselm who formatted the basis of 'Scholasticism' which in the main married theology with reason, and in particular used logical argumentation to justify Church belief. Pagan Roman and Greek philosophy was actively embraced, amended and used in this dialectical development. Platonism, integrated into Christianity by Augustine in the 5th century, preceded a similar development for Aristotelian naturalism in the 11th-13th centuries.
“Scholastic movement essentially began with Anselm, who pushed the method of logical analysis further than anyone had, up to his time. He defined theology as “faith seeking understanding”, in that the truths of faith can be neither proved nor disproved by human reason, but men are obliged to use reason to understand them as far as possible. Without minimizing the importance of Scripture, reason can venture where Scripture is either silent or unclear. Anselm especially used rational inquiry in his treatise Why God Became Man, where he tried to understand as far as possible the revealed truth of the Incarnation. Anselm’s argument for the existence of God was based on the idea of a perfect Being, no greater than which can be conceived by the mind. Such a being must exist, he argued, because perfection implies existence.” [Hitchcock's, 'History of the Catholic Church]
Far from being opposed to Greek philosophy, Christianity had always analyzed and accepted certain parts of Greek enquiry as being valid and reasonable. There was no conflict between the two. Platonism comported itself with Christianity with its emphasis on 'forms' versus reality; and on a higher divinity. Aristotelian naturalism was oftentimes scientifically invalid, but its demand to observe and test was accepted as part of human reason and necessary to understand the world of the 5 senses.
“Anselm was the first philosopher to employ the Aristotelian distinction between essence and existence to understand God, essence being that which a thing is (a man), existence the fact that it is (a particular man). In God alone, existence and essence are the same, in that His essence is simply to exist, without limit, whereas creatures exist only in limited ways.”[ibid]
Anselm's writings demarcated the obvious differences between the seen and the unseen. There are limits to both. The essence of a living creature is quite obviously distinct from its physical existence. The mind is not the same as a brain. The soul is not the same as a heart. The spiritual cannot be the same as the physical.
“His predecessors for the most part had assumed without argument the fundamental principle that the God whom they loved and worshipped had real existence. Although Anselm never doubted, he nevertheless wished to satisfy his mind by rational proof that what he already believed was true. "I do not seek to understand in order that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand." While prior at Bec, he wrote his <Monologium>, in which he restated all such logical arguments as he could find in earlier writings to prove that God is. Then, still unsatisfied, he devised an original proof of his own, and explained it in his <Proslogium>. To some of his successors it was convincing, to others not, but these and other of his works gave a great stimulus to fresh, logical thinking and arguing in the theological schools of the period, the movement known as medieval scholasticism.” Source
Notice Anselm writes, 'I do not seek to understand in order that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand'; in other words faith leads to reason. These words were later reordered by Descartes in his own statement that, 'I think therefore I am'. Reason leads to self-awareness. Anselm would have replied, 'I believe therefore I think'. Faith leads to reason and self-awareness. Both paths are valid.
Anselm presages the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas in the 13th century, the man who Christianized Aristotle. In any event, a truism is that during the 11th century there is not one single Moslem philosopher or theologian who embarked upon the same program as Anselm. Indeed from the time of Ghazali early in the 11th century the door to merge reason into the Koran was shut, never to be opened. It guaranteed the poverty and intellectual misery of Islam, a fact on indisputable and bloody display for the past 1000 years.
Culture is King. Moslem culture is Oriental, Arab and directly opposed to Western civilization – a project with 3.000 years of non-Oriental history. This is why there is a 'clash' between the Meccan cult of submission [named Islam] and the West. Cultural opposites do not merge, interact or engage over the long term; in peaceable exchange. Nothing in the historical record regarding Islam can dispute this fact.
Everything is supposedly 'nuanced' and 'very complicated' unless of course you belong to the bien-pensant club which believes that fish-walked; trace chemicals cause weather, the enlightenment was the apogee of science and that Christianity caused the 'fall' of Rome; or that Islam-is-peace. Then the nuances along with the 'factual science' are 'settled'. So the hair-flickers opine.
Huntington's thesis about a clash of Moslem 'civilization' with every other 'civilization' is about as uncontroversial as one could get. 1400 years of incessant Jihad against non-Moslems is rather obvious proof of his central theme. Jihad attacks in the modern era – some 25.000 since 9-11 – confirm the historical veracity that Islam is intolerant and desirous of world domination.
Huntington: "People are always tempted to divide people into us and them, the in-group and the other, our civilization and those barbarians. Scholars have analyzed the world in terms of the Orient and the Occident, North and South, center and periphery. Muslims have traditionally divided the world into Dar al-Islam and Dar a-Harb, the abode of peace and the abode of war." Samuel Huntington, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1996), 32
For Moslems as stated in their key liturgical documents the House of War – inhabited by the Infidels – must be destroyed. Period.
The big-brains will point out exceptions. Moslems allied with the French monarchy, itself a decrepit, corrupt and deceitful organization; during the Medieval period. Turks allied with the British and French to fight off the Russians. Various pacts and agreements between Christians and Moslems dating from the time of the Crusades. The odd Moslem helping a Christian or Jew. Political convenience, the very rare charity of a Moslem to a non-Moslem; or the self-interested treaty between a Moslem and non-Moslem state do not negate the modern Jihad designed to wipe out Jewry and Christians in a faith holocaust; nor do they obviate the unfettered violence stretching back to the founder of the Moslem cult and its barbaric document Mein Koran, which luridly calls for the destruction of non-Moslems.
Huntington only stated the obvious. Reality always shocks the Marxist-PC-mainstream media-academic axis of ignorance. They can't believe that anyone would have the gonads and the temerity to look at reality and declaim the obvious. Anger explodes when the fascist PC dictums are declared morally and factually bankrupt. Witness today the sobs of tears for Arab-Moslem 'mothers' whose children used as shields by the fascist Moslem group Hamas are inadvertently killed by Israelis. No tears are wept for the hundreds of dead Israelis wiped out by Moslem rockets over the past 15 years.
Islam is a total cult dedicated firstly to the Meccan Lord Hub'Al the moon deity, or 'The One', namely al-ilah. Allah does not mean God. Second, Islam is a cult totally dedicated to the most important man in history [before Barry Soetoro], namely Muhammad. Read the Koran. There is not a scintilla of an ethical program within the Koran. Moslems are to be nice to non-Moslems and kill or dominate everyone else. It is a lurid, dichotomous and obscenely intolerant world-view that the Nazis and Communists would also employ.
The Nazis annihilated the Churches because they opposed the cult of Hitler [and its 'science' of evolution]. The Communists tore down 40.000 Orthodox Churches and erased Christianity because as in Germany, Christian metaphysics was in opposition to the National Socialist/Fascist/Communist plan, itself also based on 'science' and the perfectibility via the state of mankind's character [a form of utopian evolution].
Moslems are erasing Christianity across the world, because the Christian project as stated in the Koran, is the enemy of Islam.
'Militant Moslems' blow up the shrine to Jonah – a 2.000 year old artifact of Christian faith. Proving that Islam is love and tolerance.
Syrian soldiers whose heads found a new home on spikes, courtesy of 'Extremist' Islam:
This is a good introduction to the history and development of the Catholic Church. Hitchcock lays out some eternal and important truths about the development of Christianity – which not only saved civilization but created it. No other culture in the world, no other cult or paganism in world history, has had such a profound impact on the creation of modernity and civilization than Christianity. That is simply an irrefutable fact.
The timing of the Christian message:
Although the Roman Empire eventually attempted to exterminate the Church, the early Christians believed that God made use of all things for His own purposes and had given the Empire itself a providential role in the spread of the faith. As St. Paul explained, Jesus was sent “when the time had fully come” (Gal 4:4), when the necessary conditions had been met. The Empire formed a geographical and cultural unity, and the Pax Romana (Roman peace) allowed relatively safe and easy travel all over the Mediterranean, thereby facilitating missionary efforts. By preaching and making use of synagogues in cities and large towns, evangelizers were able to reach the largest number of people.
At Alexandria (Egypt), one of the great intellectual centers of the new faith, St. Clement (d. ca. 217) and Origen (d. ca. 254) spoke of Tradition as being found not only in formal doctrinal statements but also in the liturgy, catechetical writings, and creeds recited at baptism. Divine truth was to be found in the Scripture, but not only there. Numerous beliefs commonly accepted by later Christians came down solely through Tradition—both matters of substantive belief, such as the Assumption of Mary into Heaven, and lesser things, such as Joachim and Anna being the names of Mary’s parents and the Magi being named Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar.
[This means that 'sola scriptura 'is utterly invalid]
The early Christians were an urban people, if for no other reason than that cities provided the best opportunity for evangelization. The pagani were literally the rural people—those who had not yet heard the Gospel and still worshipped the old gods. But with the end of persecution, and with sudden numerical growth, “stational churches”—what were later called parishes—were established in the larger cities.
Right to life:
Not only did the Romans practice abortion, every father had the right to decide whether or not a newborn child should be allowed to live. The Church also departed from Roman law in certain other ways, as in allowing marriage between a free woman and a slave.
Without condemning wealth or social status, the Church was egalitarian: in the Kingdom relationships between rich and poor were almost inverted, as saintly beggars could be superior to princes, and slaves might be more exalted than their masters.
Dying for the faith:
Martyrdom was inflicted in a variety of ways. Stephen was stoned to death, which was the Jewish penalty for blasphemy. Under Nero (54-68), Christians were coated with tar and set on fire in the amphitheatre to light the night games, and over the next two centuries, numerous Christians were sent into the arena to be torn apart by wild beasts, as Ignatius anticipated would happen to him. Paul, as a Roman citizen, was honorably beheaded, while Peter was dishonorably crucified (upside down, according to tradition, because he did not consider himself worthy to die as his Lord had died). Some martyrs were mutilated, sent to the mines, and worked to death; others were buried alive, burned en masse, or strapped into iron chairs that were slowly heated until they roasted to death.
Free will and reason:
The Christian emphasis on human free will, albeit impaired by sin, was a liberating alternative to belief in Fate. Christianity recognized the ultimate emptiness of a purely earthly existence, offered hope of eternal life, and laid down an inspiring ethic based on love and the practical discipline necessary to achieve it.
Jesus’ parable of the wheat and the tares teaches that good and evil exist together in the world, and the reality of human freedom provides the only satisfactory explanation of moral evil—God’s mysterious willingness to grant that freedom and permit its full exercise, even when it is used to thwart His divine plan.
For Augustine [late 4th- 5th century], the crucial mystery of existence was the human will and its perverse attraction to evil. He was the first person in history able to recount his own subjective experiences while looking at them with ruthless objectivity, writing a psychologically acute account of his inner life that had no equivalent in the ancient world.
Christians in effect became the custodians of that [Greek-Roman] civilization. Difficult though it would have been to achieve, they might have tried to destroy Hellenistic civilization as irredeemably pagan, and, had they done so, the later history of the world would have been unimaginably different.
Judaism was to a great extent hostile to Hellenistic civilization, and, had Christianity remained entirely within the Hebrew cultural ambience, its theology would have developed in very different ways. In particular, it would probably have been content to affirm merely that “Jesus is Lord”, without inquiring too closely into the meaning of that affirmation. But Christianity went beyond its Jewish roots and spread wherever Hellenistic civilization was influential.
Christianity played a crucial role in the development of man’s understanding of history itself, vanquishing the cyclical view of endless repetition that expressed a kind of despair, the sense that men were trapped in a process they could not control. Christianity gave history an eschaton, a goal toward which it relentlessly moves and which for the first time allowed that movement to have meaning.
One of the Church’s greatest achievements—one of the great creative achievements in the history of the world—was to bring about a synthesis between Christianity and classical civilization in the highly sophisticated theology of the second through fifth centuries.
Greek terminology helped Christian theologians describe the nature of God. The Old Testament spoke of God in ways that seemed to say that He was subject to emotion and capable of changing His mind. To the Greek philosophers, however, truth had to be immutable, so the Fathers insisted that God must be immutable and absolute, without limit or change, since change implies imperfection. The Fathers backed up the concept by also citing the voice that spoke to Moses from the burning bush—“I am Who am” (Ex 3:14, NAB)
Neo-Platonism affirmed that the spiritual, transcendent, unseen world is real and the world of experience a pale copy that can give only hints of ultimate reality.
Christendom and its theology is thus a complexity of ideas, influences, truths, realities, metaphysical ideals, aspirations and beliefs. The importance of the Christian faith can be found in any area of life, but without question it was the Christian project and ideal, which over 2.000 years took the best elements of 'classical' civilization and impelled them forward to a rational, reasonable, and life-giving superior civilization. Only in Christian theology are women, slaves, the poor, the sick, the dispossessed and the helpless elevated to the first rank. Only in Christendom will one find a merger of the practical and the theological.
Moslem Fascism – just following the Koran. ISIS is planning a Christian genocide in Iraq, marking the houses of Christians with a 'N' or Nazarene. Christians are being raped, attacked, their propery and wealth confiscated, and the Moslems are going to slaughter thousands of them – as per Koranic 'law', better termed bronze-age barbarism. Western Moslemophiles will twitter with delight, flicking their hair and orgasming over the benefices of multi-culturalism, whilst they regale themselves, like the brain-dead of the world do, with reality-tv.
“Departing Christians who attempted to take belongings [Mosul in Iraq] said they were robbed of their possessions and forced to take residence in camps for displaced persons.
Phones, money, jewelry were all confiscated. Even the cars in which they have tried to flee have been taken. One woman claimed to be robbed of $15,000. Even wedding rings are being seized.
The Islamic State is serious about its intention to form a new Islamic Caliphate in the Middle East and to export Islam by whatever means necessary. The initial conquest is over, and now the consolidation of power has started. Once the cities and borders are secure, the state will likely cast its hungry gaze on neighboring cities, without respect for borders.” Link
Arab Moslems have engaged in Jihad against Jews since the founding of the Meccan moon cult. Al-ilah means the Lord, it does not mean God in the Judaic sense of the word. The Lord of Mecca was Baal, famous within the Old Testament as a cult of evil, which included child sacrifice, polygamy, bloody animal votive offerings, and little in the way of morality or ethics. Hub'Al or Hu Baal was the Meccan Baal.
In the time of King David and his son the profligate and highly overrated Solomon, Gaza was Jewish territory. So too was the West Bank. Samaria was populated by the 'Samaritans', transplanted Babylonian Jews who settled there post 540 BC and who had a different interpretation of Jewish scripture. They were shunned by the more Orthodox Jews, but Samaritans still considered themselves Jewish. Long in advance of the Meccan moon cult, the Jewish empire and its lands which at one time extended from Gaza to Damascus was a salient geo-political fact and force. Destroyed first by the Assyrians [722 BC], then by Babylon [587 BC]; the Jewish state was reconstituted under Cyrus the Persian in 540 BC.
The fact is that the Jewish state and its lands, including that of Gaza pre-date the Meccan moon cult by at least 1600 years. So who is squatting on whose land ?
The violence emanating from Hamas, Fatah, Hizbollah and other Moslem-fascist groups against the Jewish state will never end. The reason is simple – Koranic and Moslem anti-Semitic culture. The Koran mandates the destruction of all Jews [and all Christians as well]. Blaming the Jew for Moslem violence and Jihad is an apogee of stupidity. If Hamas and the Gazans were to forswear violence, destroy their rockets and tunnels, and turn their energies to commerce, education and development, peace would reign. But this will never happen as long as Islam and its Koranic fascism hold sway over any society, including the non-culture in 'Gaza', yet another example of a failed Arab-Moslem state.
Many myths abound about the Medieval period. The lies spread by Atheists, and pro-Moslems are not only in the main quite ludicrous, but also extraordinarily ignorant. When you hear them, you wonder if the speaker possesses any sentience whatsoever. One persistent myth is that there was no 'medicine', or that it was 'imported' from those fantastically capable and alert Moslems, an often-stated mendacity, that titillates the Church haters. Moslems in the atheist-Marxist world-view are the supposed progenitors of all that is civilized. This is why the Moslem world today is such a paradise of plurality and prosperity of course.
In actual fact medieval medicine as found in Christendom was almost entirely a local-regional phenomenon based on what today is termed 'homeopathy', and on natural 'holistic' principles, now in vogue, but standard practice from 800-1500 AD. It was decidedly superior to Moslem methods, which relied almost exclusively on failed Greek ideals, perpetuated by Galen, who unfortunately still had a lot of followers in Medieval Europe as well. Few real Moslem creations in medicine were unique, or of much use. And those which were, always emanated from converts.
Christendom invented hospitals, and medical research. This is a simple fact. These institutions date back to the 3rd century AD, or some 300 years before the madness of Muhammad's cult and Jihad began. The Nestorian hospital complexes, which were the largest in the world by the time of the Moslem Jihad, were centres of learning and research as well as care for the ill. But these centres were resident all across Europe by 700 AD. Monasteries and priories across the width and breadth of Europe, during the non-existent 'dark age' [a reference to modern cults perhaps], were active and free, sustained by Church tithes and the donations of the rich.
Starting from the 3rd century, medicine advanced in leaps and bounds over Greco-Roman illiteracy. Christian doctors and healers were the first to advocate complete cleanliness of the body and of course of specific wounds and ailments. Pagan superstitions about 'bad air' [a Roman preoccupation], or 'the gods make you ill' [a Greek-Germanic ideal], were replaced by observation. The use of cautery in treating wounds was first developed by Christians in the 4th century; and by the 9th century Christian hospitals were the first to develop anesthesia using a mix of henbane and opium, for surgical procedures. Common surgery included amputations, removal of brain and bodily tumors, removal of foreign objects such as metal, and bone repair. Nuns by 650 AD had formed the first order of nurses, and from England to Sicily, nuns and Christian healers worked side by side to treat the sick. Almost all Christian hospitals were free of charge.
Most of the infirmary wards were sited in areas which provided natural herbs and remedies. In many places even today, one can visit these sites and behold the 200-300 different varieties of plants nearby which were the hospital's pharmacopoeia. I doubt today that anyone visiting these sites could identify 3 plants correctly. There was no Moslem influence here, but local knowledge and experimentation. Indeed the Christian hospital had dedicated monks, who delved in experimentation of recipes and concoctions, in the attempt to resolve specific ailments and complaints. In fact many herbal remedies were superior to what we have today. It is doubtful that our modern society so stuffed on pills filled with poison have improved in-toto, our intake of medicine. Abortion as well seems to be rather pagan and murderous does it not ? In some ways modernity is a regression.
Converted Moslems, or Jews, Persians and Christians with Moslem names, did contribute some knowledge about smallpox, meningitis and other infectious diseases. This information was enthusiastically added to the catalogue of Christian knowledge. Dedicated university faculties of medicine at Bologna and elsewhere, were only too eager to adopt whatever worked, from wherever it came. Not so the Moslem world. The transfer of information was uni-directional. Though Christian medicine, and its institutions were far in advanced of the Moslem, then as now, the Moslems guided by their moon deity, believed they had nothing to learn from the infidel ape and pig. A lie much cherished by Marxist, Atheists, and the big-brains of the world. Christian medicine in the medieval period was not 'dark'. Our ignorance is what is truly dark.

Nearly two years after the “Arab Spring” began in Egypt, the nation’s Muslim Brotherhood president has arrogated to himself dictatorial powers, and is ramming through a new constitution that will effectively extinguish the last vestiges of Egyptian democracy and establish Egypt as a Sharia state. Just as I said back in January 2011, when the uprisings against Mubarak began, for the people in Egypt who had real power to affect change, the “Arab Spring” was never about democracy and pluralism, despite the ululations of the Western press; it was always about imposing Islamic law upon Egypt. And now, with the new constitution, here we are.

Have you done your shopping yet? It’s Hatred and Violence in the Qur’an Awareness Month — what better time to buy a bomb vest for the mujahid you love?
Inspired by a remark from Pat Condell in this video, I have proclaimed December to be Hatred and Violence in the Qur’an Awareness Month. After all, November was Islamophobia Awareness Month, and certainly the hatred and violence in the Qur’an kills many, many more people than “Islamophobia” ever has or ever will, and so it is far more deserving than “Islamophobia” of a month of its own.
Sura 2 or the Heifer is one of the last 'revelatory' chapters given by the archangel Gabriel to Muhammad, on behalf of the former family deity and moon idol Hub'Al, recast by Muhammad as the monotheistic Al-Lah or 'The One'. Fully half of this Sura is Christianophobic and Judeo-ophobic. Quite an amount from a cult dedicated, as the one-world wonders inform us, to love and tolerance.
Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.
And fight in the Way of Allah and know that Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.
How many Moslems actually dislike Jihad ? Many, most, the majority ? seem to support it. The most important duty a pious Moslem has is Jihad:
They ask you concerning fighting in the Sacred Months (i.e. 1st, 7th, 11th and 12th months of the Islamic calendar). Say, "Fighting therein is a great (transgression) but a greater (transgression) with Allah is to prevent mankind from following the Way of Allah, to disbelieve in Him, to prevent access to Al-Masjid-al-Haram (at Makkah), and to drive out its inhabitants, and Al-Fitnah is worse than killing.

Sura 2 or the Heifer is one of the last 'revelatory' chapters given by the archangel Gabriel, he of Gospel fame, to Muhammad, on behalf of the former family deity and moon idol Hub'Al, recast by Muhammad as the monotheistic Al-Lah or 'The One'. Being one of the last 'communications' with the divine, Sura 2 is of great importance in the Koran and within Moslem liturgy. Over half of this Sura is Christianophic with at least 15 % of this chapter, or some 44 verses [bare minimum], being openly violent and preaching the physical destruction of the Christians. Combined these examples of Christianophobia appear to be a surprisingly large and intolerant amount from a cult dedicated to peace and brotherly love:

• Muslim immigration to the USA and Muslims’ share of all new legal permanent residents will continue to rise. Most of the immigrants will arrive from South Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

Jerusalem has been called the most controversial piece of real estate on earth. Jerusalem is widely recognized as a city holy to three world religions. The media consistently refers to it as the holiest site in Judaism, and the third holiest site in Islam. It is also home to important Christian sites like the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the Via Dolorosa and the Mount of Olives, but it has never been essential to Christian theology that Jerusalem be ruled by a Christian power. The primary justification for the Crusades was to reopen the holy sites to Christian pilgrims who had been barred by the Muslim occupation of the city, not to permanently conquer land. Furthermore, in the 21st century Christians make up less than 2% of the Holy Land’s population, a number that is steadily decreasing as they are driven out by their increasingly radical Muslim neighbors. Thus, today the principle competing claims to the city come from Judaism and Islam. Let’s examine these claims:
Muslims can paint a false portrait of their founder all they want. Their Koran – a pagan fascist document which outstrips Mein Kampf in gibberish and ranting racism – the Hadiths or explanations to the unreadable Koran; and the biography of the founder or Sira; tell us about the real Mohammed. Muslims are only lying to themselves when they try to represent Mohammed as a 'prophet' of peace, love, merriment and inter-cultural extasy. Their own documents and histories tell us otherwise. Mohammed was in effect a murderous brigand; probably quite insane and a man with lusts for blood, power, sex and murder which would challenge even the most intolerant of Mongol, Turkish, or Central Asian nomad in quantity and ferocity. Mohammed was in essence the anti-Christ.
Why do Moslems in Gaza hate the Jews so much ? Why did the Islamic imperialist conquest of Judea and Israel in 638 AD mandate dhimmitude or second-class knave status for all Jews and Christians ? Why have the Arabs launched 6 wars against the Jews in Israel since 1947 ? Why do Imams, the hierarchy of Islamic theocratic governance and Moslem jurists and poli-ocratic preachers demand a second holocaust ? Further why do Western morons, dimwits, and racists side with the Arab Moslems on this issue ?
Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi is the most popular Islamic preacher in the world. And he has done this before. He said on al-Jazeera: “Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the [Jews] people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler. By means of all the things he did to them – even though they exaggerated this issue – he managed to put them in their place. This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers….”
