'Flint, MI is an industrial wasteland,
inhabited by potential suicides.'
Ever ask yourself, how
did all this grief with Middle East
Islamic terrorism get started?
Part Two of a brief history follows:
1) There were over 30 Islamic terrorist
going back to 1979, with the founding of
the Islamic Republic in Iran (Persia).
2) When the prophet Muhammad died
in 632 AD his followers split into two groups,
disputing whom should be the true leaders
of Islam from then on: Sunnis and Shia.
Presently, worldwide, 85-90% of Muslims
are Sunni. However, Iran is 90% Shia.
They have been fighting and killing each
other ever since, along with millions of
Christians, Jews and other nonbelievers.
For example, the Armenian Genocide
during WW I, 1915-1918. In the area
known as Turkey today, the Sunni Muslim
Turks exterminated over 1.5 million Christians
and Jews, with help from the Sunni Kurds
in the eastern part of that area.
Some German officers serving in Turkey during
the Armenian Genocide took their experience home,
became SS Officers in WW II, you know the rest.
Today Turkey is 98% Muslim:
76% Sunni, 24% Shia.
The Kurds are also 98% Sunni.
Those same Sunni Kurds are still killing
Christians in their northern area
of Iraq today. See below:
Currently, Sunni Kurds are crucifying Christians in Northern Iraq; while Shia Muslims in Syria and Iraq are being crucified by Sunni ISIS.
Click for proof: Caution shocking images.
In Mosul, there are no Christians left living there, for first time in the nation's history. 'Convert or Die' is the ISIS policy.
[We've heard lots of calls to 'arm the Kurds to fight ISIS,' but is that really our best policy in light of the Christians being slaughtered by them?]
3) When Russia invaded Afghanistan
in 1979-89 (Carter boycotted the Olympics),
the U.S. armed Sunni Arab fighters, led by
Osama Bin Laden, a Saudi Sunni Muslim.
After the USSR Russians retreated in 1989,
Bin Laden founded Al Qaida (Arab for "The List.")
All of the 9/11, 2001 attackers were Sunni Muslim
natives of Saudi Arabia from his "list."
Since the USA retreated from Iraq in 2011,
the Sunni-Shia sectarian conflict has escalated
in spite of earlier American sacrifices.
When U.S. Seals killed Bin Laden in 2011, his
leadership was fragmented throughout the Middle East.
One of the splinter groups, to create a new caliphate,
became the Islamic State in Iraq, ISIS or ISIL.
There are about three million Muslims in America:
(1% of U.S. population) 50% Sunni, 16% Shia;
the rest non-affiliated.
The Obama Administration intends to invite
hundreds of thousands more Muslims into the
U.S.; following the lead of Germany and liberal
Europe. At the same time, terrified Jews are
escaping Europe to Israel as you read this.
Iran, (77 million Muslims), promises to
'Wipe Israel ( 8 million Jews) off the map.'
Do we have a Muslim sympathizer in the White House?
To be concluded next week:
356 more days until
January 20, 2017
and a new president.
