The Origin of Bloody Islamic Imperialism

While charges of Western aggression are made against the European Crusaders, who are blamed for creating hostile feelings between East and West, James Arlandson helpfully reminds us of the nearly half a millenium of jihad waged by Muslims against the West that preceded the First Crusade. Mohammed himself led the first jihad against the Byzantine Christians in Tabuk in 630 AD. His followers followed his policy of bloody religious imperialism for centuries (Arlandson provides a list of major Islamic jihads) until Pope Urban II dispatched the First Crusade in 1095 to repel the Islamic invaders of Christian eastern Europe.

The Muslims turn the truth on its head to claim the Crusades as unprovoked aggression, conveniently forgetting their own centuries of aggression against the West. Some Muslims go on to dishonestly claim the Crusades as justification for their own current war on the West. And the same policy of jihad is carried out by radical Muslims, urged on by the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia, for the same reasons to this very day.

US May Draq Earth Into War of Worlds

Paul Hellyer, Canada’s Defence Minister in the 1960s and Deputy Prime Minister under Pierre Trudeau, gave a speech on September 25, 2005 at the University of Toronto in which he revealed that UFOs are real and that America was preparing to drag Earth into an intergalactic war with the aliens who fly them.

"UFOs are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head," claimed Canadian genius Hellyer. "The United States military are preparing weapons which could be used against the aliens, and they could get us into an intergalactic war without us ever having any warning. The Bush administration has finally agreed to let the military build a forward base on the moon, which will put them in a better position to keep track of the goings and comings of the visitors from space, and to shoot at them, if they so decide."

Said Hellyer, "I'm so concerned about what the consequences might be of starting an intergalactic war, that I just think I had to say something." He concluded, "The time has come to lift the veil of secrecy, and let the truth emerge, so there can be a real and informed debate, about one of the most important problems facing our planet today."

And his Canadian university audience gave him a standing ovation.

Hellyer is an example of the foreign government officials who constantly question the intelligence of Americans and their leaders. His argument demonstrates the intellectual quality of anti-American rhetoric, in which any claim, no matter how insane, is taken seriously.
