History & Responding To Jihadists

Effective Communications With Muslims----The Lessons Of History

There have been too many whining and sniveling for "reaching out" for more and better communications with Muslims. There have been such communications in the past at such places as: Tours (732 AD); Las Navas de Tolosa (1212 AD); Granada (1492 AD); Lepanto (1571 AD); Chocim/Khotym (1621 AD); Vienna (1683 AD); The USA's campaigns against the Islamist-Pirates of the Barbary States (1805-1815); Navarino (1827 AD); Israel’s various and defensive wars from 1948 on [Just in case you ask, I am not of the Jewish Faith nor do I have any financial interests in the State of Israel]; Multinational mini-campaigns against the Islamist Pirates operating off the Muslim Sudan and in other places in more recent years; Etc.. [To these I add the most excellent shooting down of the worm who assassinated a ceremonial guard on Canada's Parliament Hill and by the armed citizen who shot down the swine who beheaded a lady in Oklahoma. I can now gladly add the lessons of The Sniper!]


George Santayana "Those who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it.
PS---As the police are too often too late and too few to respond to criminal attacks, the real "first line of defense" is citizenry armed with readily available and modern firearms.
