Following are a few reasons to question the intelligence or MOTIVES for why the last few Presidents have described Islam as being a “peaceful religion”:
The term means “new army” in the original language. The Ottoman Turks were having trouble holding their bloated empire together in the 13th century and following. European nations were continuing to advance in every way — due to the “civilization factor” that all cultures (especially Christian cultures) enjoy over the Islamic culture of fear and negative control. The Turks did not have the gold to consistently maintain the traditional army, so what to do?
The answer with Islam is to always go on a murderous rampage. In pockets of Europe, the Turks succeeded in the slaughter and intimidation of some whole cities, but the children were not slain. To the contrary, the children of slain resistant parents (and later of parents who capitulated to Muslim brigands) were treated pretty well. The intelligent children were trained to become engineers, doctors, and other types of professionals. The stronger and duller of these youths were raised to become infantry: slave-soldiers. In time, Janissaries became the “special forces” of the Turkish empire. Being raised in ignorance regarding their culture-of-origin, the Janissaries were effective at destroying the (primarily Christian) communities from which they had been stolen in Europe.
Shown is the standard sword issued to all janissaries, called a yatagan. In melee, they relied on axes. At distances, they were early adopters of firearms. Whereas most firearms made prior to the Civil War in America fired bullets of a non-standardized calibre, the Ottomans have been attributed with making a concerted effort to have uniform ammunition for their troops — firing projectiles that were 3.1 inches in diameter!
The brain-washing that Janissaries received was total. Applying the Islamic philosophy of Devşirme, the esoteric Sufi cult was imposed on most of these young warriors and is still involved in the training of some Turkish soldiers today, called Sarna. It involves the use of shrill, manic music and chanting that helps the warrior to enter a transcendental state of mind — or lack thereof. It was Turkish troops using this technique in North Korea in 1950-1951 who became such a terror to the Communist Korean forces in the area that the Commies retreated into China and didn’t reenter N. Korea for several months.
On May 14th, 1999 – The Pope kissed the Qur’an.
Let’s see what he was kissing.
Quotes from the book make it obvious that Islam and Christianity have very different origins, philosophies, and values:
“Infidels are those who declare ‘God is Christ, the son of Mary'”-Surah 5:17;
“Infidels are those that say ‘God is one of three in a Trinity'”-Surah 5:73;
“Infidels are your sworn enemies”-Surah 4:101.
The Koran continues:
“Make war on the infidels”-Surah 9:123;
“When you meet the infidel in the battlefield strike off their heads“-Surah 47:4;
“Muhammad is Allah’s apostle, those who follow him are ruthless to the infidels”-Surah 48:29;
“Take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends”-Surah 5:51.
I suggest to you that the Muslims who cut off Mr. Pearl’s head on video were not extremists at all. They were just following the dictates of the Muslim religion.
The Bosnian Tragedy of the 1990’s
Muslims have not softened one bit in recent years. The atrocities committed in Yugoslavia in 1990-1992 — primarily by Muslims against “Christians” is overwhelming. Here is a link to UN depositions taken by survivors of this ethnic conflict which have been translated and delivered to the U.S. State Dept. Here is a link to a Serbian site which exists to reveal just how evil militant Muslims have been in recent history. The site includes photos of beheaded Christians, etc., so beware. The bibliography from which the site draws its information is rock solid.

Jizya — Islamic Taxation of non-Muslims (dhimmi)
Jizya is the rationale supporting the pirates of Somalia. According to Wikipedia:
From the point of view of the Muslim rulers, jizya was a material proof of the non-Muslims’ acceptance of subjection to the state and its laws, “just as for the inhabitants it was a concrete continuation of the taxes paid to earlier regimes.” In return, non-Muslim citizens were permitted to practice their faith, to enjoy a measure of communal autonomy, to be entitled to Muslim state’s protection from outside aggression, to be exempted from military service and the zakat taxes obligatory upon Muslim citizens.
Always coercive, Jizya is a much more rapacious form of extortion than is khums: the taxation of Muslims by Muslim governments.
The U.S.M.C. soldiers are still referred to as “Leathernecks” because our Marines wore collars lined with leather to protect their necks from the cutlasses of Barbary Coast pirates in the 1700’s. The Marines’ hymn includes the phrase”to the shores of Tripoli” because that was the city supporting the Barbary pirates. Our nation endured decades of abuse from these ideological monsters until a protracted bombardment of Tripoli ended the piracy for tribute.

We agree to “turn the other cheek” when we face insult due to our Faith in Messiah. But we only have one head to offer, so I prefer to resist the Islamization of the West aggressively.
Jdg 3:1-2 ESV – Now these are the nations that the LORD left, to test Israel by them, that is, all in Israel who had not experienced all the wars in Canaan. It was only in order that the generations of the people of Israel might know war, to teach war to those who had not known it before.
