In A Foxhole
“When you're left wounded on

Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,

Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,

And go to your God like a soldier”

“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.”

“Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.

“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,

for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”

“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .”
“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

“Nobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.

“Fixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man."
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

The Soldier stood and faced God

Which must always come to pass

He hoped his shoes were shining

Just as bright as his brass

"Step forward you Soldier,

How shall I deal with you?

Have you always turned the other cheek?

To My Church have you been true?"

"No, Lord, I guess I ain't

Because those of us who carry guns

Can't always be a saint."

I've had to work on Sundays

And at times my talk was tough,

And sometimes I've been violent,

Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny

That wasn't mine to keep.

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills got just too steep,

The Soldier squared his shoulders and said

And I never passed a cry for help

Though at times I shook with fear,

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place

Among the people here.

They never wanted me around

Except to calm their fears.

If you've a place for me here,

Lord, It needn't be so grand,

I never expected or had too much,

But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was silence all around the throne

Where the saints had often trod

As the Soldier waited quietly,

For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you Soldier,

You've borne your burden well.

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,

You've done your time in Hell."

Chattanooga Leftist activist converts to Islam, marries Islamic State jihadi, cheers Chattanooga jihad massacre
Sunday, August 02, 2015
Ariel BradleyJihad Watch : “Gifted this morning not only with Eid but w/ the news of a brother puttin fear n the heart of kufar [non-believers] n the city of my birth. Alhamdullilah [thanks be to God].”
Once again we see that a convert to Islam gets the idea that converting to this new religion also requires committing treason. No authorities, however, show any curiosity about this phenomenon.
“Chattanooga woman marries ISIS fighter, cheers for Marines shooter,” by Joy Lukachick Smith, Times Free Press, July 26, 2015: After Ariel Bradley met a Muslim man online and moved to Sweden to marry him, most of her friends stopped hearing from her.
They weren’t surprised that she had flown so far away. Or that she had so wholeheartedly adopted her new Muslim faith. That was her style. The Hixson-born 29-year-old had once been home-schooled and Pentecostal. She wrote Bible verses in black marker on the roof of her car. “I love JC,” it read.

Islam as a Vehicle for Arab Supremacism
BerberJihad Watch : Long ago, Bernard Lewis wrote about the “multiple identities” of the peoples of the Middle East.
By that he meant that one could be Muslim, but not necessarily Arab — as Berbers and Kurds were also Muslim. One could be Arab, but not necessarily Muslim, or identify by language and culture with Arabdom, as some Arab Christians (especially “Palestinians”) do, while Copts and Maronites may not.
Then there are Shi’ite Iranians, but also Shi’ite Arabs, as in Syria, who might favor one part of their identity over another. And then there were smaller peoples in the area whose identity was neither Muslim nor Arab, which made them particularly vulnerable to aggression, having no one to call upon, for they stood alone — such as the lamented Yazidis.
The recent fighting between Berbers and Arabs in a town — Ghaadia — in southern Algeria reminds us of this crazy-quilt of peoples and tugging identities in North Africa and the Middle East. To the extent that a Berber is keenly aware of being a Berber, he is less likely to be a keen embracer of fanatical Islam, for Islam is identified with ‘Uruba, or Arabdom, the “gift of the Arabs” that demanded of non-Arab Muslims that they pray five times a day in the direction of Arabia (Mecca), ideally take Arab names, read the Qur’an in Arabic, and sometimes even construct a false Arab ancestry (as the “Sayeeds” of Pakistan) that links them to the Prophet.
Not all Berbers want to be told they must ideally be Arabs.The clashes in Ghaadia between Arabs and Berbers offer a chance to consider how those “multiple identities” can be played upon, or appealed to, to lessen the tug of Islam among non-Arab Muslim.

Mahathir is reaping what he sowed, his apt student follows the ways of his sifu
Malaysiakini : COMMENT Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad's latest round of griping that Umno leaders are keeping away after having earlier piled him with their worries about what the party and country were coming to is disingenuous.
Mahathir inculcated precisely this opportunistic - 'friends in fair weather, strangers in foul' – behaviour. Mahathir spoke of this turn in the attitude of Umno leaders at a book launch ceremony yesterday.
He said they had gone from being complainants to the former PM about the administration of the current one, Najib Abdul Razak, to keep-away types keen to avoid the wrath of their present boss who is reputedly in high dudgeon about waverers in the government's ranks.
The complained-about change in the attitude of the current set of Umno leaders is not something that should surprise Mahathir: he helped foster the phenomenon. Mahathir's loyal lieutenant, Sanusi Junid, once told an Umno general assembly of how Dr Mahathir's wife, Dr Siti Hasmah, complained to him that no Umno leader of import had come to see her husband in the immediate prelude to the April 24, 1987 elective general assembly of Umno. Siti Hasmah must have noted her spouse's loneliness and went to commiserate with Sanusi.
The 1987 Umno general assembly was a momentous one that saw contests for the top posts. Mahathir was challenged for the presidency by Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah and Ghafar Baba, Mahathir's handpicked replacement of Musa Hitam for deputy prime minister, contested incumbent Musa for the party No 2 post. It was an intensely fought battle that was run to the wire. The party was split right down the middle as a consequence of Musa resigning from Mahathir's administration in 1986. The cabinet had several sympathisers of the Razaleigh-Musa combo formed to fight Mahathir at the party polls in 1987.
Mahathir must have cut a lonely figure in the final days to the vote on the Friday opening of the presidential address on April 24, followed by balloting by the delegates. Hearing of his boss' lonely plight from Siti Hasmah, Sanusi hurried to Mahathir's side, presumably to boost his spirits and prop up the mood. Years later, Siti Hasmah would reciprocate Sanusi's solicitude for his boss' travails by writing a letter to dissuade an Anwar Ibrahim ally, Bakar Said, from contesting Sanusi for the Umno Langkawi division chairman's post.
An unpopular Sanusi needed the chairman's post if only to shore up his flagging position as Kedah menteri besar. The letter did not do the trick like the tonic of Sanusi's company apparently did for Mahathir's spirits in late April, 1987. In the event, Mahathir won by a razor-thin margin and proceeded to behave as if the slimness of his majority did not matter. He was going to wield the axe and out of the cabinet went all the supporters of the Razaleigh-Musa combo.
Stacking cabinet with toadies Najib, in an eleventh-hour switch of support from the Razaleigh-Musa team to Mahathir's side, on the guarantee by the vacating Anwar Ibrahim that he would be the next Umno Youth chief, secured his place in the Mahathir line-up. Now Najib is emulating Mahathir in stacking his just-reshuffled cabinet with toadies and journeymen. When Mahathir did the same after the party election in 1987, he quickly gravitated from being the leader who was avoided to being the one courted.
His tactic of rigging the rewards system to deal with supporters and those who disliked his style ensured that the ensuing generation of Umno leaders would be distinguished only by their ability to mime the president's line. Now for Mahathir to lament the fecklessness of the current set of Umno leaders in complaining about the present Umno leader when the pressure is not there and then melting away when the heat is on is disingenuous.
It's like the stable-hand trying to close the door after the horses have bolted the barn. Mahathir would have obtained a premonitory warning of this attitude of the current set of Umno leaders from the episode a few months back when Parliament speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia told him that he had resigned. Mahathir proceeded to give public vent to Pandikar's démarche to him.
Mahathir was made to feel silly when it transpired that Pandikar had complained about his impotence and the lack of perquisites for his position to sundry BN bigwigs but had not actually quit the speaker's job. Mahathir ticked off Pandikar for his pussyfooting. The episode should have given Mahathir a premonitory twinge. It is said when the going gets tough, the tough get going. The latter are not to be found in the current Umno set of place-and-journeymen.
TERENCE NETTO has been a journalist for more than four decades. A sobering discovery has been that those who protest the loudest tend to replicate the faults they revile in others.

The Myth of Islamic Science - Indians invented algebra by Waseem Altaf
Indian Facts : After the establishment of the Delhi Sultanate, not a single center of learning (other than Islamic seminaries) was established for over seven centuries.
The first modern universities came to be established only during the British rule. Also worth noting is the fact that the so-called ‘synthesis’ of learning took place before Islamic invasions engulfed both India and Persia in a Dark Age. The Sassanid emperor Kosrau I deserves much of the credit for work that is wrongly credited to Islamic rulers and scholars.
Islamic ScienceMuslim scholars would begin translating the classic Greek works, primarily toeing the Aristotelian tradition. In addition, they were heavily relying on Persian and Indian sources. They also penned huge commentaries on works by Greek philosophers.
However, the Muslim translators were small in number and were primarily driven by curiosity. More than ninety nine percent Arabic translations of works of Greek philosophers were done by either Christian or Jewish scholars.
It is interesting to note that Islamic astronomy, based on Ptolemy’s system was geocentric. Algebra was originally a Greek discipline and ‘Arabic’ numbers were actually Indian. Indians invented algebra, calling it bija-ganita. Greeks considered some special cases in number theory like Diophantine Equations, also known to the Indians.
The cumbersome letter-based notation (like the later Roman numerals) did not lend itself to problems in algebra. The major Greek contributions were the concept of proof (known also to Indians) and above all the axiomatic method at which they excelled.
The Arabs themselves never denied their indebtedness to the Hindus in astronomy, medicine and mathematics. They called their numbers ‘Hindu numerals’. As noted in the Editor’s Introduction, much of this took place in pre-Islamic Iran, especially under Khusro I.

Revealed: Navy Officer Did Something Heroic During Chattanooga Shooting, But May Be PUNISHED For It
Western Journalism : In Obama’s America, it can be a crime to successfully defend yourself from a jihadi attack. .
A Navy officer and Marine reportedly returned fire at the shooter who killed five service members in Chattanooga, Tenn., even though current policy does not permit military members to carry firearms on facilities such as those where the attack occurred.
Mohammod Abdulazeez was slain last Thursday after allegedly firing dozens of shots at two separate military facilities, including the Navy Operational Support Center in Chattanooga. The cold-blooded assault killed four Marines and one active-duty Navy reservist.
The center’s commanding officer, Lt. Cmdr. Timothy White, used his personal firearm to engage the shooter during the attack, according to sources quoted in the Navy Times. A report from The Washington Post said that one of the Marines killed in the shooting might have been carrying a 9 mm Glock and possibly returned fire on Abdulazeez.
The Navy officer could face disciplinary action for violating policy about possessing a weapon on the facility that was supposed a gun-free zone. The investigation into the attack is ongoing, and authorities will not know if White or the Marine hit Abdulazeez until an autopsy and a ballistics report have been completed. The recruiting center, the other building at which the gunman fired, was reopened Monday.

Islamic State executes six people for leaving Islam
Jihad Watch : WARNING: video is graphic. And while most who take any note of this video at all will dismiss it as more indication of the Islamic State’s “extremism,” in reality the death penalty for apostasy is universal among the various schools of Islamic jurisprudence.
“Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Bukhari 9.84.57). The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law according to all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence. This is still the position of all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence, both Sunni and Shi’ite.

Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the most renowned and prominent Muslim cleric in the world, has stated: “The Muslim jurists are unanimous that apostates must be punished, yet they differ as to determining the kind of punishment to be inflicted upon them. The majority of them, including the four main schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi`i, and Hanbali) as well as the other four schools of jurisprudence (the four Shiite schools of Az-Zaidiyyah, Al-Ithna-`ashriyyah, Al-Ja`fariyyah, and Az-Zaheriyyah) agree that apostates must be executed.”
There is only disagreement over whether the law applies only to men, or to women also – some authorities hold that apostate women should not be killed, but only imprisoned in their houses until death. “WATCH: ISIS Executes 6 ‘Apostates,’” by Sam Prince,, July 31, 2015 (From The Religion of Peace):

The Sultan of Swing’s Dangerous Gamble
Saturday, August 01, 2015
Foreign Policy : It appears Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is taking his country to war in order to win an election.
It could be the biggest miscalculation of his political career. The ink had barely dried on the “game-changer” headlines proclaiming Turkey’s much delayed entry in the war against the Islamic State, when Kurdish activists began sounding “game-unchanged” warnings on Twitter.
The hashtag :
#TurkeyIsAttackingKurdsNotISIS, started making the rounds before dawn on Saturday, July 25, just hours after Turkish warplanes began bombing Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) positions in northern Iraq.
So if Friday, July 24, began with a dramatic change in the region — Turkey directly taking on the Islamic State — it ended with a familiar hammering of an old foe that has fixated Ankara for decades and exposed Turkish inflexibility on the Kurdish issue, regardless of whether there’s a military dictator, a Kemalist, or an Islamist in power.
Sadly, this happened despite a cease-fire between Turkey and the PKK that had been holding since March 2013. There were still hopes for a critical peace deal. But those peace dreams have now been flushed down the Turkish toilet.

Once again, the Kurds are betrayed
Spiked : For a while, the Kurds in Iraq and Syria were useful to the West. They were prepared to do what intervening, rhetorically grandstanding Western states were unable to do – fight the Islamic State (IS).
Yes, the likes of Cameron and Obama could talk big on IS; they could call it an ‘imminent threat to every interest we have’; they could deem it the most ‘serious threat we face’. But, while railing against IS allows Western leaders to evoke what they lack domestically – authority, moral purpose, cojones – that very same lack stopped them from following through on the rhetoric, stopped them from acting on the grand phrasemaking, stopped them lending the postures substance. And so it has been left to others to do the fighting, and the dying – to do, that is, the very thing Western leaders seem incapable of doing: risking lives for something.

Once again, the Kurds are betrayed
Because this is exactly what the Kurds have done – in Iraqi Kurdistan with the Peshmerga fighters prominent, and especially in Syria with the People’s Protection Units (YPG) to the fore. They and their affiliates have risked their lives to resist and even roll back the tide of black-clad nihilism, and the US and its Western allies have supported them and even praised them. As well they would. They did what the West could only gesture towards with high-altitude bombing missions and drone attacks: they took on and, at points, defeated IS. Foreign Affairs magazine estimates that since international airstrikes started in September 2014, the Kurds have regained about 25 to 30 per cent of territories lost to IS in Iraq and have retaken the city of Kobane, plus many more villages, in Syria, forcing IS to retreat to its strongholds of Raqqa, Deir ez-Zor and Al-Hasakah.
But, now that a hitherto quiescent Turkey has responded to the IS bomb attack that killed 32 in the south-eastern town of Suruc by launching airstrikes not only against IS in Syria, but also against Kurdish positions in Iraq, all that has changed. The US has sided with fellow NATO member Turkey against IS, and, as a result, against the Kurds, too. The West is betraying the Kurds, once again: a familiar historical occurrence. The White House went so far as to reiterate its classification of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) as a ‘terrorist organisation’ and to state that Turkey had the right to defend itself against attacks by Kurdish rebels – this despite the fact that in Syria the US has been relying on the PKK’s sister party, the Democratic Union Party (PYD), and its People’s Protection Units, to be its ‘boots on the ground’.
This US-led volte-face, in which the Kurds, so long used by the West as a bulwark against IS, have been blithely, callously cast to the Turkish wind, is typical of the blundering, moral and political incoherence of contemporary Western intervention. Once again, shallow posturing and clueless meddling combine to barbaric effect. Today’s allies are tomorrow’s enemies, and vice versa. Two years ago, Syrian president Bashar al Assad was bad guy numero uno, and the assorted army renegades and Islamists operating under the catch-all title of ‘the Syrian rebels’ were to be supported with arms and big statements. A year later, and Assad is himself fighting against the West’s current bad guy numero uno, IS, which, alongside assorted al-Qaeda franchises, were the principal recipients of Western anti-Assad largesse – as IS’s numerous US Humvees and rocket launchers testify.

Know Your Enemy : A Primer on Islamic Jihad
Sunday, July 26, 2015
National Review : Islamic jihad has declared war on the United States and all of Western civilization.
ISIS has announced its intention to dominate the world and fly its black flag from the White House in continuation of a 1,400-year-old war against us “infidels.”
In the first 100 years after the death of Mohammed (a.d. 632)`, Islamic jihad conquered most of the known world except Western Europe. Christian forces blocked the first century of Islamic conquest at the very bloody Battle of Tours on October 10, 732.
Islamic jihad continued to threaten the very existence of Christianity throughout the next millennium. October 7, 1571, marked the destruction of Islamic jihad’s massive fleet by the Holy League fleet in the Aegean Sea.  More than a century later, Islamic jihad, having conquered the Middle East and most of Eastern Europe, had surrounded and besieged the crown jewel of Western Christendom, Vienna. If Vienna fell to Islam, all of Western Europe would be likely to follow.
After a two-month siege of Vienna, relief forces from Poland and Germany arrived. The battle for relief of Vienna began on September 11, 1683, and ended with the rout of the Islamic forces the following day. On September 11, 1697, Prince Eugene caught and routed a large Islamic army and delivered a decisive blow at the Battle of Zenta.
In keeping with the September 11 theme, the British established a mandate for Palestine on September 11, 1922, and at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, eleven Israeli athletes were killed on September 11. Millions of Islamists remember the humiliations of September and seek to humiliate the “Great Satan,” the United States. Thus the attacks on the World Trade Towers and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, and on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.

ABC terror attacks 87% of network Islamic jihad stories don’t mention Ramadan threats
Jihad Watch : Surprised? “87 Percent of Network Islamic Terror Stories Skip Threats of Ramadan Violence,” Newsbusters, July 22, 2015:
Acts of terror marked the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Terrorists cut a bloody path from Tennessee to Tunisia — one that commanded much of the broadcast network’s attention. Only newscasts often ignored the religious timing of the threats by Muslim terrorists.

The Islamic terrorist group ISIS, which declared a Middle East “caliphate” a year ago on June 29, 2014, strongly encouraged violence during the Muslim holy month. Reuters and The Telegraph (UK) reported on June 23, that an ISIS spokesman called for Muslims to make Ramadan “a month of calamity for the infidels.”
The “infidels” include non-Muslims and westerners, but also Shiite Muslims and those ISIS called “apostate Muslims.” Al-Shabaab, another Islamic extremist group, threatened Kenya’s non-Muslims even before Ramadan began, All Africa reported.

Info about Chattanooga jihad murderer is disappearing from the Internet
Jihad Watch : “Abdulazeez did what jihadists are asked to do prior to execution of their attacks: delete important information that could provide insight into their networks.”
Abdulazeez3And now his network is no doubt enjoying the spectacle as law enforcement officials and the mainstream media continue their quest to discover his motive. “Information about the Chattanooga Shooter is Disappearing from the Internet,” by Rita Katz, SITE Intel Group, July 23, 2015:
A week after Chattanooga shooter Mohammad Abdulazeez’s attack, very little is known about his motives, path to radicalization, and network of affiliations. Immediately after the attack, Islamic State (IS) fighters and supporters hailed Abdulazeez as a “soldier of the Islamic State,” but no official messages from IS claiming the attack have yet been made.
This silence is noteworthy considering the case of the shooting in Garland, Texas: Not only did IS fighter Junaid Hussain bluntly indicate his connection to this attack, but in less than two days, IS officially announced the shooters to be “two soldiers from the soldiers of the Caliphate.” So why all the confusion surrounding Abdulazeez?

Christians left asylum housing after being threatened
Monday, July 20, 2015
Radio Sweden : A group of Christian asylum seekers felt forced to leave an asylum housing building in Mönsterås, in southeast Sweden, after threats and harassment.
The Migration Agency. Photo: Maja Suslin / TT.A group of Muslim asylum seekers demanded that the two families stop wearing Christian symbols, like crosses around their necks. The families were also not welcome in common areas when the other group was present, according to the newspaper Östra Småland.
"They decided on their own to arrange new housing and moved away without our assistance," Mikael Lönngren, from the Migration Agency in Kalmar county, told newspaper Dagens Nyheter.
The incident was not reported to the police. Lönngren told Dagens Nyheter that religious conflicts were uncommon in asylum housing.

Chattanooga jihadi, 3 other Muslims went practice shooting before attack
Jihad Watch : Where are the other three now? What are they doing? “Muhammad Abdulazeez reportedly spotted at gun range before deadly attack,” WDEF, July 18, 2015:

Prentice Cooper Gun RangeCHATTANOOGA, Tennessee(WDEF) – According to a tip that came into WDEF, Muhammad Abdulazeez was spotted at a gun range just weeks before killing four Marines and one Navy Petty Officer.
Abdulazeez was reportedly spotted with three other men who were wearing long beards like Abdulazeez. All four were reportedly practice shooting. The claim has not been confirmed by law enforcement but several sources told WDEF the men were likely spotted at Prentice Cooper Gun Range.
When News 12 arrived at the gun range, several men who were practicing shooting said a man who claimed to be a former Marine arrived at the range Saturday morning and said he was doing his own investigation to see if Abdulazeez had been shooting at that location.
The men said he asked multiple groups of people who were at the range. CBS News is also reporting that Abdulazeez told his co-workers that he and a group of guys recently went shooting at a gun range.
CBS News got its information from law enforcement sources who interviewed Abdulazeez’s co-workers….

Psychologist: poor, insane Muslim terrorists with family problems are still Muslim terrorists
Jihad Watch : In connection with at least three Muslim terror attacks (one, two, three) this year, police were able, almost on the spot, to diagnose the attacker as suffering from mental illness.
Victims of “mentally ill” car jihad terrorist, December 2014It always amazes me how authorities are able, in a surprisingly short time, to diagnose somebody. Being an experienced psychologist myself, I know that it usually takes hours, and most often days, weeks or even months, to correctly diagnose a person.
For years, we have seen how media, politicians and authorities downplay the very real threat of Islamic terrorism again and again, and many think that by blaming psychosocial problems, the police try to exempt Islam and Muslim immigration from blame, and calm the public by not categorizing attacks as “terrorism.”
Instead, they blame insanity, poverty (as when US Secretary of State John Kerry concluded that lack of money “in many cases is the root cause of terrorism“) or family problems (as in the case of the Chattanooga shooter Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, in which authorities very quickly sent out information about Abdulazeez’ divorce). But there are many poor people in this world. There are many people with mental problems, and people with family problems. So why is it that only Muslims, with or without the above mentioned problems, commit acts of terror?

ATLANTIC JIHAD: The Untold Story of White Slavery
Sunday, July 19, 2015
Whilst the Arabs have been acknowledged as a prime force in the early usage of slaves from Africa, very little has been written about their usage of White slaves, whether they were part of the Russian slave trade or those kidnapped by Arab pirates.
However, in recent years, the research of some authors has been bringing this issue to light.

The origins of African slavery in the New World cannot be understood without some knowledge of the millennium of warfare between Christians and Muslims that took place in the Mediterranean and Atlantic and the piracy and kidnapping that went along with it. In 1627 pirates from the Barbary Coast of North Africa raided distant Iceland and enslaved nearly four hundred astonished residents.
In 1617 Muslim pirates, having long enslaved Christians along the coasts of Spain, France, Italy, and even Ireland, captured 1,200 men and women in Portuguese Madeira. Down to the 1640s, there were many more English slaves in Muslim North Africa than African slaves under English control in the Caribbean. Indeed, a 1624 parliamentary proclamation estimated that the Barbary states held at least 1,500 English slaves, mostly sailors captured in the Mediterranean or Atlantic. Millions European Christians were kidnapped and enslaved by Muslims in North Africa between 1530 and 1780 -- a far greater number than had ever been estimated before.
Professor Robert Davis, in his book Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters: White Slavery in the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast, and Italy, 1500-1800, estimated that 1 million to 1.25 million White people were enslaved by North African pirates between 1530 and 1780. One of the things that both the public and many scholars have tended to take as given is that slavery was always racial in nature -- that only blacks have been slaves. But that is not true, We cannot think of slavery as something that only white people did to black people.
Slavery in North Africa has been ignored and minimized, in large part because it is on no one's agenda to discuss what happened. The enslavement of Europeans doesn't fit the general theme of European world conquest and colonialism that is central to scholarship on the early modern era, he said. Many of the countries that were victims of slavery, such as France and Spain, would later conquer and colonize the areas of North Africa where their citizens were once held as slaves. Maybe because of this history, Western scholars have thought of the Europeans primarily as "evil colonialists" and not as the victims they sometimes were.
Between 1580 and 1680. That meant about 8,500 new slaves had to be captured each year. Overall, this suggests nearly a million slaves would have been taken captive during this period. Using the same methodology, Davis has estimated as many as 475,000 additional slaves were taken in the previous and following centuries. The result is that between 1530 and 1780 there were almost certainly 1 million and quite possibly as many as 1.25 million white, European Christians enslaved by the Muslims of the Barbary Coast.
Enslavement was a very real possibility for anyone who traveled in the Mediterranean, or who lived along the shores in places like Italy, France, Spain and Portugal, and even as far north as England and Iceland.from 1500 to 1650, when trans-Atlantic slaving was still in its infancy, more white Christian slaves were probably taken to Barbary than black African slaves to the Americas, Pirates (called corsairs) from cities along the Barbary Coast in north Africa -- cities such as Tunis and Algiers -- would raid ships in the Mediterranean and Atlantic, as well as seaside villages to capture men, women and children.
The impact of these attacks were devastating -- France, England, and Spain each lost thousands of ships, and long stretches of the Spanish and Italian coasts were almost completely abandoned by their inhabitants. At its peak, the destruction and depopulation of some areas probably exceeded what European slavers would later inflict on the African interior. We have lost the sense of how large enslavement could loom for those who lived around the Mediterranean and the threat they were under," he said. "Slaves were still slaves, whether they are black or white, and whether they suffered in America or North Africa.

The Enemy Within
Mark Steyn : On Thursday my weekly date on The Hugh Hewitt Show fell just a couple of hours after the murder of four US Marines by yet another member of the Amalgamated Union of Lone Wolves. It was a victory for the jihad, no question about it. One should be especially careful about what one says in the immediate aftermath of mass murder, but Hugh asked me and here's what I said:

HUGH HEWITT: Mark, this seems to be what everyone has been warning about for the past six weeks or so as Ramadan comes to an end, Abdulazeez arrives on the scene to kill four Marines.
MARK STEYN: Yes, these stories are all different, and in a certain sense, they're all the same. You said it was two "military installations", which makes them sound more secure than they are. This was in fact a recruiting center, which means it was a storefront in a shopping mall. It was next to a pizza joint, and it had a little sticker on the door saying in effect that this is a gun-free zone.
So in fact, these storefronts, which are all over America (I passed one earlier this morning in a town in Northeastern Vermont), are incredibly vulnerable to attacks like this... Whether or not it's actually directed by ISIS or anybody, I mean, most of these "lone wolves" turn out to be, as I've said before on your show, "known wolves" - in that they've been on the radar of certain people, certain authorities at some point.
As I said, all the stories are different, but they're all the same. In the case of the Pantybomber, his father fingered him to the CIA - who then did nothing with the information. In the case of this man - Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez - it was (according to The New York Times) his father, an employee of the Chattanooga Public Works Department, who had come under scrutiny by the vast federal terrorism apparatus, who eventually let their investigation lapse.
Other than that intergenerational wrinkle, the perpetrator (about whom not much was known when Hugh and I spoke) was a familiar figure: a young man with a university degree in engineering, living in a nice middle-class residence in a nice middle-class neighborhood.
To Marie Harf and her colleagues in the Administration, he's obviously a victim of economic deprivation whose urge to blow up America would be mitigated by a decent economic-stimulus package. In fact, the poverty is all on our side: a poverty of imagination, the inability of Marie Harf and others to understand that not everyone thinks like you do. And until we respect our enemy sufficiently to stop assuming he's just Marie Harf with a beard and a scimitar, we will keep losing.
In a further jest on posterity, and a reminder that no good deed goes unpunished, the perpetrator was born in Kuwait in 1990, the year Saddam Hussein invaded and occupied the country ...prompting the first President Bush to send American troops, kick him out and liberate the Abdulazeez family's native land. If you expected them to be grateful for the sacrifice of American blood and treasure, well, that's part of that Marie Harf poverty of imagination, too.

The Politically Incorrect History of the African Slave Trade
Blazing Cat Fur : The trade in African slaves was not invented by Europeans.
But it was the Europeans, the British specifically, that ended it at their own expense for the benefit of others.

Muslim Arabs hunted, enslaved, tortured and killed ethnic Africans for a millennium. Middle Eastern Muslim Arabs have a history of over 1400 years of human slavery, which even continues today in the Middle East. Arab Muslims controlled, maintained, initiated slavery of ethnic Africans.
Arabs, kept and sold African slaves.

Jihad against U.S. Troops Is Not a ‘Circumstance’
National Review : Four U.S. Marines, barred from carrying weapons at naval training facilities despite explicit ISIS threats against our military, are dead in Tennessee.
Another service member and a Chattanooga police officer survived gunshots after Thursday’s two-stage massacre allegedly at the hands of 24-year-old jihadist Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez. Navy secretary Ray Mabus called the terrorist’s spree “insidious and unfathomable.”
President Obama bemoaned the “heartbreaking circumstance” in which the murdered Marines found themselves.“Unfathomable”? Not if you’ve been paying attention. Islam-inspired hate crimes against our troops have continued unabated since the Obama White House first dismissed the 2009 Fort Hood massacre as “workplace violence.” Here’s what’s unfathomable:
While the social-justice warriors in Washington bend over backward to appease CAIR and Muslim-civil-rights absolutists, Americans in uniform are dying on American soil at the hands of Allah’s homicidal avengers — but the commander-in-chief couldn’t even bother to deliver a live statement to the nation yesterday about the bloodshed.
Instead, Obama issued another bland, bloodless pronouncement about the assassinations of our disarmed troops. “Heartbreaking circumstance”? Lightning strikes are random events of unfortunate circumstance. The concerted attacks and plots against our troops in their recruitment centers and on their bases here at home are outrageous acts of war. Have you forgotten?

It Wasn’t a ‘Lack of Opportunity for Jobs’ That Motivated the Chattanooga Shooter
National Review : “We need in the medium- to longer-term to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs, whether . . . ” — Marie Harf, Deputy Spokesperson, U.S. State Department, Hardball with Chris Matthews, February 16, 2015.
Given the relatively swank digs occupied by his family in the Colonial Shores neighborhood of Hixson, Tenn., it appears that “lack of opportunity for jobs” was not Mohammod Youssef Abdulazeez’s affliction. The 24-year-old Kuwaiti immigrant who killed four Marines and wounded several others yesterday at two military recruitment centers in Chattanooga appears to have been amply provided for.
“For more than a decade, Mr. Abdulazeez, his parents and his sisters had made their home in a subdivision called Colonial Shores, just across the Tennessee River from Chattanooga,” writes the New York Times today. “It is a movie-set vision of American suburbia, almost surreally well-tended, with handsome middle-class homes of a late-1970s vintage.” And Abdulazeez himself? As a kid he hung around with the other kids in the neighborhood, he wrestled in high school, he was friendly to his neighbors.
He graduated from the University of Tennessee in 2012 with a degree in engineering. “He seemed to have been an all-American boy, handsome and polite, normally in a T-shirt and jeans.”Not impoverished, not deprived, not “minimized” or “marginalized.” What possibly could have motivated Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez’s murderous attack yesterday?
What, in Ms. Harf’s phrase, were the “root causes”? The FBI’s investigation is ongoing, but the early indications seem to be pointing in a predictable direction: Mr. Abdulazeez maintained a blog where he posted about Islam, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks international terrorist groups. A July 13 post stated that “life is short and bitter” and that Muslims should not let “the opportunity to submit to Allah . . . pass you by.”

No, the Chattanooga Shooter Really Does Appear to Be a Jihadist
Image result for muhammad-abdulazeezNational Review : As is their wont in cases where Muslims kill Americans, investigators hastened to point out that overseas stays in a region rife with Islamic radicalism are not necessarily suggestive of terror ties . . . even if the traveler, on his stateside return, promptly shoots up military installations while the Islamic State and al-Qaeda urge Muslims to shoot up military installations.
Abdulazeez was technically a Jordanian national when his parents brought him to the United States from Kuwait as an infant in 1990. Sometime during his childhood, he became a naturalized American citizen. Yet the family appears to self-identify as Palestinian, a conclusion I’ll explain in due course.
The 24-year-old jihadist was finally killed in a shootout with Chattanooga police Thursday morning. He had first opened fire on a military recruiting office, shooting out the windows. He then drove to a U.S. Naval Reserve Center about six miles away, where he murdered the four Marines. Also wounded in the spree were a Marine recruiting officer, a police officer, and Navy sailor who, as this is written, is still fighting for her life after a night of surgery.
In the hours right after the shooting, local federal officials stated the obvious: the jihadist killing of our Marines was an act of “terrorism.” By nighttime, the government was walking that back. President Obama described the “assault” as a “heartbreaking circumstance.” Attorney General Loretta Lynch prefers “national-security investigation” to the word “terrorism.”
