In Turkey, we are seeing a repugnance of the absolute brutality that is their version of Islam. Only the Russians have the national will to oppose them. Our country is working with Turkey.
Turkey was only 60 percent Muslim in 1850.
It was 40 percent non-Muslim.
Now Turkey is 100 percent Muslim.
In Smyrna, 100,000 Christians were slaughtered in 1922.
One of the great canards of the current Administration is that white, right wing extremists kill more people in the US than do Islamic terrorists. The problem with those numbers is that Muslims, today, make up about 1.3% of our population. When someone who is Muslim goes nuts and kills, the Administration does everything but turn itself into a pretzel in order not to blame it on the religion. When a white person does something horrific, they blame it on white supremacists, southerns, guns, Christians, and conservatives, even when none of the above categories work.
Unfortunately, today, unless you know your history, your uncensored history, I suspect you may be falling for the canard that Islam is a religion of peace. Far from it. I have found it to be rather deplorable to attempt to find information that I swear I know, about the brutal nature of Islam. It’s not there. The information, documented, is in the text books I still have, from my medieval history courses, but golly gee, some strange little PACMAN type censor has gobbled up records of the true nature of expansionist Islam. If you check the recent PEW poll about Islam and the world, you might want to notice that they basically view the west with abject contempt. The real problem is most people today, don’t understand the religion. It is a religion that, in itself is not violent, but the way it can be taught has led to some of the worst atrocities humanity has ever known.

Democrats are doing everything possible to insure that people who are Muslims see the GOP as an extreme party of hate. Unfortunately, there is a very real, politically incorrect reason why they have no problem painting Republicans as haters.
“...When it comes to political and social views, Muslims are far more likely to identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party (70%) than the Republican Party (11%) and to say they prefer a bigger government providing more services (68%) over a smaller government providing fewer services (21%). As of 2011, U.S. Muslims were somewhat split between those who said homosexuality should be accepted by society (39%) and those who said it should be discouraged (45%), although the group had grown considerably more accepting of homosexuality since a similar survey was conducted in 2007….”
It’s all about those adorable little numbers and registering voters. I think that’s one of the reasons I can never be a Democrat, even though I do like some of their people things. They are blatantly dishonest. If you upset one of your little constituent groups, then they might not vote for you. One of these days their dishonesty and pandering is going to get a heck of a lot of people killed. My fear is those days are upon us.
