Western Civilisation

Western Civilisation was and is superior to anything Islam has developed.  Islam has not aided in the development of the modern world; in fact civilisation has only been created in spite of Islam.  Raising the alarm about the paganism called 'Submission' since 2000.

The third vicious and rapacious Mahometan assault on Spain occurred in the mid 12th century.  The second Muslim Jihad, perpetrated largely by Black Muslims named Almoravids, had originated in 1089 and by 1147 had been comprehensively defeated by the Christian kingdoms in the north of Spain.  The borders of Christianity had expanded, the Muslim occupied ‘south’, in which wide-spread persecution, and destruction of Christians and their property and lives had been barbarically implemented, was now contracting its failures blamed on impiety, and a lack of Jihadic fanaticism.  Concerned Muslims and those wishing the eradication of the Christian north, asked the Almohads, fanatical Mahometans who believed in the ‘oneness of the Al Lah’, or more plainly rejected and persecuted anyone, but especially Christians who professed a ‘joining to Al Lah’ including Christ and the Holy Spirit.  The Trinity in the Qu’ran is loathed and hated (3-367, 4-448 and elsewhere).  There is no compassion or tolerance for the Trinity believers for orthodox Mahometans.

The Almohad cult, dedicated to the completeness and unity of the Al-Lah (the moon deity of Mecca and Muhammad’s family idol whose shrine they were the caretakers of), was formed by one Ibn Tumart in the early 12th century in Morocco.  It is thus a Berber cult and again, for the racialists today so devoted to white-racism, a non-white cult.  The Berbers are not ‘white’.  Again as with the Almoravids, we have a non-white invasion of once Romano-Visigothic and entirely white Christian territory.  But nary a dissenting voice, word, or blog in the modern world about this Muslim imperialism and attendant slaughter and rapine of white Christian territory.

For some reason Tumart presented himself not just as a divinely inspired leader, but the reincarnation of Muhammad.  Given that Muhammad was a criminal war leader, paedophile, brigand, thief and murderer who performed no miracles, an imitation was unlikely to prove difficult to realise and even offer benefits to its claimant.  Why anyone would believe Tumart is left to the imagination but plunder, booty and power are reasons which come to mind and fit in with the Muslim cult’s ‘ethos’.  In 1123 Tumart raised a vast force, with the intention of reconquering and reimposing strict Sharia on first Almoravid North Africa, and then Spain.  He exhorted his followers by declaring that the weak and failing Almoravids were perverts of Mahometism and they must be reconciled to the one Mahdi (or final Imam of Muhammad’s cult), namely himself.  The Almohads invaded North Africa and attacked far and wide, killing, plundering and destroying the ‘impious’ Muslims and Almoravids.  By 1145 the Almohads and destroyed the Almoravids in North Africa and were imposing totalitarian Sharia on the conquered subjects.  In 1146 Tumart led his hordes into Spain and directly attacked the Christian states in the north.  The Christian advances were stopped the borders once again solidified and the remaining Christians in the Muslim south were again persecuted, imprisoned, killed, or exiled. By 1064 no Christians were left in the kingdom of Granada for example.

The latest Jihad prompted the north Christian states to build monkish military orders to defend the borders and build forts and castles at key points. These warrior monks proved the ablest and most courageous of the Christian defenders and were essential in an era where there was Christian disunity, with the various kingdoms at odds over land, trade and borders and often making separate peace treaties or deals with the Almohads. 

By the late 12th century Christian disorganisation was partially ended by King Alfonso VIII of Castile, who was able to assemble a crusade from the bickering Christian states.  However, Alfonso’s army was inferior in size and might to that of the Almohads and it lacked the cohesion and unity of the Almohad forces.  On July 18 1195 the Musulmans defeated Alfonso’s men at the battle of Alarcos just south of Toledo which is not that far from Madrid.  It was a colossal defeat for the Christians, one of the worst ever suffered at the hands of the Musulmans.  The Muslim emir and general Abu Yusuf could not follow up this signal victory due to rebellions in North Africa.  This was fortunate for the Christians and bought them time to regroup.

A new Caliph, one al Nasir, arrived in Spain from North Africa in 1211 resolved to utterly annihilate Alfonso VIII and follow up the victory at Alarcos.  Pope Innocent III proclaimed a Crusade in Spain, adjuring the Christian states within Spain to focus on the Muslim Jihad and put aside their temporal and material complaints.  Innocent reiterated the public declarations by al Nasir that his intent was to extirpate all Christianity and Christians in Spain.  The time for unity and a new Crusade was necessary.  The Muslims referred to the Christians as white swine, and the Christians re-joined with cries to evict the black dogs from across the sea.

In mid May 1212 thousands of Christian warriors gathered in Toledo, with many more thousands of pilgrims and penitents making barefoot processions around the basilica and offering up prayers for salvation and protection from the Mahometan menace.  This vast army under Alfonso VIII left on June 20 1212 to attack Musulman fortifications along the border.  They took many strongholds and were led by a mysterious shepherd through a hidden pass some 100 miles south of Toledo onto the plain of Las Navas de Tolosa, which is where the Caliph al-Nasir was encamped.  Al-Nasir’s army was a mix of black slaves, Berbers, Arabs, Turks and Mujahidin mercenaries.  The 20.000 or so Christian host was heavily armoured with the latest technology and weaponry.  Much of al Nasir’s African force were half-naked fighting on smaller horses using speed and alacrity as their main offensive tactics.

Alfonso VIII humiliated at Alarcos 20 years previously and suffering ignominy and minor defeats since, initiated the battle on July 16 1212.  The Christian heavy infantry and horse crashed into the Musulman front lines and were met with stout resistance and fanatical energy.  The terrain favoured the Almohads who fought on an incline facing down to the Christian attack.  Archers were of limited use in the close hand to hand combat.  The Christians cut down many lines of Musulmans but the Muslim host, some 40.000 men, was twice that of the Christian and the lines were replaced.

Somehow miraculously, inspired by the Holy Cross carried aloft, the Christians under the giant King Sancho of Navarre and his heavy calvary broke through the Almohad centre and carrying the cross it appeared to the rest of the Christian forces, some of whom had started to flee certain that the large Muslim host was going to be victorious, that the Holy Cross was behind enemy lines indicating a Christian victory.  When defeat seemed certain, this minor miracle reversed the affair, and the entire Christian army plunged back into the fray, slicing and killing their way through the Muslim lines to the Caliph’s tent, itself protected by chained black slaves.  Al Nasir fled on a horse, but his army was not so fortunate.  Most of it was pursued and ruthlessly slaughtered.  The Muslims suffered their worst defeat in ages, an entire Almohad army put to the sword and the way now open for the Christians to reconquer the Muslim south.

Las Navas de Tolosa was the beginning of the end for any Musulman rule in Spain.  The Almohads quickly declined.  The military power and prestige of the Mahometans forever effaced.  One by one the Muslim territories and statelets were conquered by the Christians.  The great victory by Alfonso at Tolosa would be followed up by one of the great Christian leaders and Crusaders no one has much heard of – St. Ferdinand III of Aragon and Castile.

Battle of Ourique, 25 July 1139, saw the forces of Portuguese Prince ...

The Muslim Jihad and annihilation of Romano-Christian civilisation in Spain, had ‘phases’ of activity and ‘waves’ of Jihadic war.  The first invasion occurred in 711 AD by Arab and Berber armies, more numerous, motivated and faster than the Visigothic forces who were betrayed, as so often was the case in the medieval era when Muslim forces faced Christian, by corrupt generals and faint-hearted troops.  From the time of Don Pelayo’s seminal victory at Covadonga in 722 AD, to 1085 when Christians had reconquered Toledo, the ancient Visigothic capital of Christian Spain, the Muslim tide of war and destruction had slowly waned, the purity of Jihad watered down by the luxuries of the conquered and superior Christian civilisation, effeminate tastes displacing the allure of booty and the hard work of participating in raids to obtain sex-slaves, the delights of the harem and the material replacing the intensity of the spiritual and immaterial.  By the end of the 11th century the laxity of the ruling Muslims in Spain elicited a ferocious response from their co-cult members in Africa.

The Christian ‘swine’ or pigs as the Muslims called them, ranging from the ‘north’ were proving by 1085 to be a real threat.  The woes enacted by Christian arms, and the success of the Christian Reconquista, evoked lamentations from Muslims, who identified the causation of this impossible state of affairs to be impiety, a lack of devotion to the Al Lah and his mad profiteer Muhammad, and the surrendering of once intolerant Muslim orthodoxy to the sensual pleasures of amoral living and luxury.  The Muslim Emirs or ‘Taifa Kings’ therefore asked their militant African brethren for help in rolling back the Christian forces.  These Muslim adherents were called the ‘Almoravids’, fanatical zealots, who dedicated their lives to waging Jihad, and were active in the Niger and Senegal river basins, slaughtering, enslaving and converting.  The civilised attractions of Spain versus the infertility of West Africa must have been incredibly enticing to the Almoravids. 

In 1086 the Black, non-White Almoravid Muslims were in Spain and a large host defeated Alfonso of Castile, the victor at Toledo, crushing his forces at Sagrajas.  The Black Almoravids built a pyramid with Christian skulls to celebrate their victory.  Alfonso barely escaped with his life, and most of his army was either killed, taken prisoner or fled to safety.  Fortunately for Spanish Christians a rebellion in North Africa recalled the Almoravid leader Tashufin, who spent 3 years putting down the rebels, returning to Spain in 1089.  Pope Urban II understood that this new Jihad was a threat to southern France and beyond.  In 1089 he exhorted all Christians to conduct a Crusade in Spain to throw back the latest Muslim wave.  Presaging his colossal speech at Clermont in 1095, which initiated the Holy Land Crusades, Urban promised a full remission of sins for any Christian who fought against the Mahometan in Spain. 

The existing Muslim ‘Taifa Kings’, viewed the Almoravids with almost as much horror as they did the Christians.  For the Taifa rulers, the North Africans were too devout, too pious and fanatically deranged and focused on war.  They were unresponsive and indifferent to Tashufin’s call for war.  Ignoring the weak Taifa King’s, Tashufin attacked the strongly held Christian capital at Toledo without them, failing to take the city.  He blamed this defeat on the immoderate weakness of the existing Muslim aristocracy who were insufficiently war-happy.  For the next 10 years or so Tashufin conquered and absorbed these Muslim statelets, enforcing a strict and binding Sharia.  Christian Dhimmis or second class citizens within Muslim domains were persecuted, some killed and many of their churches pulled down.

The borders between Christian and Almoravid Spain had not changed much since 1089.  In 1118 another King Alfonso of Aragon restarted the Reconquista.  He attacked the Ebro valley, retaking Saragossa in 1118.  Tens of thousands of Christian Dhimmis were repatriated and saved.  They became indispensable in re-populating the border lands between Christian and Muslim held territory.  In reprisal the Muslims did the usual, increasing the persecution of Christians and the demolition of churches.  Many Christian Dhimmis lost their property, scores were imprisoned and put to death.  There were mass deportations of Christians to North Africa, with many tens of thousands expulsed.  Entire areas of cities in Spain, once populated by Christians, were now emptied. 

In 1138, the Christians were still in the ascendant.  Alfonso VII of Leon, ravaged the norther parts of Muslim held territory, burning down mosques and setting fire to any copy of the Koran which was found.  Muftis or any ‘learned’ men of the Mahometan cult were put to death.  In 1139 in Portugal, Afonso Henriques and his mixed army of Spanish and Portuguese, destroyed a large Muslim force at Ourique, one of the most devastating defeats suffered by Muslims in Spain.  This created the nation of Portugal.  In 1146 for the first time since 711, the Christians retook Cordoba.  In 1147 with the help of the 2nd Crusade, Lisbon, Tortosa and Almeria were liberated.  By 1150 it was clear that the second ‘great wave’ of Muslim war mongering and Jihad had failed in Spain.  The Christians were on the path to reconquering the peninsula.  This elicited a third rabid response from Muslims in Africa, leading to the invasion by the Mahometan Almohads, as vicious, blood thirsty and rapacious as the Almoravids had been in 1086.

ADOM :: The martyrs of Otranto


After the Muslim victory at Manzikert in 1071 A.D., the enslavement, slaughter and rape of Christians inside and near to the Muslim state reached biblical levels.  A French priest wrote in the late 11th century, “Far and wide (Muslim Turks) ravaged cities and castles together with their settlements.  Churches were razed down to the ground. Of the clergymen and monks whom they captured, some were slaughtered while others were with unspeakable wickedness given up….”  The Muslim Turks had taken over the most fertile and important manpower areas of the Byzantine empire after Manzikert.  Entire areas and populations were forced to accept the Muhammandan cult or face depredations, enslavement, rape or even death. 

There was no tolerance and no golden age.  Byzantium’s Emperor Alexios I Comnenos (1081-1118) lamented that, “The holy places are desecrated and destroyed…Noble matrons and their daughters….violated one after another like animals….even bishops are defiled with the sin of sodomy…”  The Muslims sought out to not only destroy Christian Byzantium but to defile, mock, degrade and absolutely debase it and its adherents in the most demonic ways imaginable.  No criticism of such savagery exists today of this sordid chapter in history.  None will be tolerated.

The atrocities committed by Muslims post-Manzikert included the lands of Anatolia, Syria, Palestine, and Armenia.  Christian pilgrims to Jerusalem, wrote Michael the Syrian, were easy prey for the Muslim Turks.  Many female pilgrims were raped, some in the view of the pilgrimage group until the woman died from the repeated assaults.  Other pilgrims were simply murdered, and their few possessions taken.  Some others were tortured for sport.  The Turks were simply following centuries of examples set by Muslim Arabs.  It was nothing new.  For example Caliph Hakim Allah (996-1021) ordered the destruction of 30.000 churches in Egypt and Syria including the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.  A persecution that was one of an endless array enacted by Muslims against Christians.  However, by the 1090s after Manzikert, the Christophobia enacted by Muslims seemed to reach a crescendo.  The demonic assaults against Christians and their edifices and culture were so lurid and so evil that even the usually apathetic Western states and its Church took notice.


The Muslim Turk and their endemic, obsessive Christophobia is the context for Pope Urban II’s November 27 1095 call for a religious war, a Crusade to save the Church in the East.  Pope Urban II said inter-alia, “They (Muslim Turks) have completely destroyed some of God’s churches and they havre converted others to the uses of their own cult.  They ruin altars with filth and defilement….They are pleased to kill others by cutting open their bellies, extracting the ends of their intestines, and tying it to a stake….And what shall I say about the shocking rape of women?  Rise up and remember the manly deeds of your ancestors…Deus le Veult”  God wills it said Urban.  God demands a Crusade to save Christianity and those afflicted by the demonic assaults of Muslims.  Save Christian siblings demanded Urban II.  Can you imagine anyone in the modern Catholic Church stating even a jot or iota of these sentiments today?  The modern Church would blame the victims.

By 1095, the Western world had changed.  The states and empires of the West, forged in the smithy of Christianity, were by this time advanced civilisations.  They were wealthy, agriculturally ahead of the rest of the world, technology and invention abounded in all spheres of life, it was the age that would birth universities, eyeglasses, blast furnaces and the heavily armoured mounted knight, basically an impenetrably tailored muscular warrior on a protected steed, an early form of mobile tank. 

Western civilisation had been at the mercy of the Muslim Jihad for centuries.  Its coastal areas depopulated and raided.  Most of Spain and southern France taken, occupied, and devastated.  The once Romano-Christian areas of North Africa which before the Muslim Jihad were appendages of the Christian Roman empire and tied by trade and culture to the eternal city, were conquered, occupied, looted and destroyed by Muslims.  The once rich societies and their economies eviscerated never to recover which is why North Africa is a mess and a wasteland in the modern era.  By 1095 the feudal warrior states of Western Christianity had had enough of Muhammad’s cult and its endless frenzied and psychotic Jihad.  As St Augustine stated, “It is the injustice of the opposing side, that lays on the wise man the duty to wage war.”  Nicely stated and true.  The only way to end the Muslim Jihad is to annihilate it in war.
