MUSLIM JIHAD IN JEFFERSON'S TIME - How the BARBARY WARS changed US history - Jefferson's war against Muslim piracy and slavery

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Many people think that jihad is a recent phenomenon.  The fact is that Islam has been waging an almost relentless war of conquest, slavery, looting, mass slaughter, and forced conversions since the 7th century, allowing it to expand through much of Asia and Africa. 
 
Muslim Arabs were key perpetrators of the international slave trade in Africa.  But that is not all.  Islam also conquered parts of Europe at one time, and engaged in piracy and the capture of European women as sex slaves.
 
Contrary to current mainstream views, Islam's practices of gruesome violence against non-Muslims, slavery, and other crimes are not an aberration or a distortion of Islam but they correspond to strict religious mandates by the Koran, which is regarded as the will of Allah. 
 
The following article reviews a recent book on the Barbary Wars - the US defensive wars against Arab piracy, slavery and their exorbitant demands for ransom - and on these wars' importance in early American history. 
 
Incidentally, today western countries pay generous welfare and other benefits to Muslims living in the West, afraid that if those payments are cut or reduced, even greater violence will erupt.

  The Forgotten War that Changed American History


by Janet Levy

 Some key ideas on this article: 
  • For centuries, ships had been attacked in international waters and had their crews and cargoes held for ransom, even those belonging to the great naval powers of the day, France and Great Britain. 
  • Rather than fight the pirates, these countries preferred to pay annual tributes to purchase safe passage for their vessels.
  • The First Barbary War, marking the first time that the American flag was raised in victory on foreign soil, had ended with America standing up to the pirates, something the established European naval powers had not done. 
  • John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, then respective American ambassadors to Britain and France, were confounded by the Muslim practice of attacking a nation outside the context of war and absent an identifiable threat. 
  • Following a meeting with Muslim leaders both Adams and Jefferson registered astonishment at the excessive tribute amounts and inquired how the Barbary States could justify "[making] war upon nations who had done them no injury." 
  •  The (Muslim) Tripolitan ambassador declared that "all nations which [have] not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave."
  • Authors Kilmeade and Yaeger point out the irony of Jefferson, author of "all men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights," being confronted by the stark reality of Islamic doctrine.
  • President Washington wanted neither a standing army nor navy and favored a policy of neutrality in foreign affairs. His administration made payments to ensure U.S. ships passage through the seas. 
  • in 1800 the USS George Washington, the first American warship to enter the Mediterranean arrived safely in Algiers but failed to carry a significant enough tribute so Muslims captured the ship and crew. 
  • In response then president Jefferson declared war and a blockade.
 
In the late 1700s, the newly independent republic of the United States was continually beset by piracy at sea from four Muslim Barbary Coast states: Algiers, Tunis, Tripoli, and Morocco. 
 
The U.S., with limited military resources and staggering debts from the War for Independence, sought to establish secure routes for international commerce to spur rapid economic growth needed to build the emerging country. 
 
Yet the U.S. faced constant Ottoman attacks on its merchant ships. American and European ships venturing into the region routinely faced capture of crewmembers, who risked being held as slaves until hefty ransoms were paid. 
 
The persistent Barbary pirate raids created a major crisis for a new nation that could not afford to either suffer from economic isolation or pay the exorbitant tributes demanded by the pirates.
 
In Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates (Sentinel, 2015), coauthors Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger explore "the forgotten war that changed American history." In an action-packed thriller that aptly captures the time, place, politics, and circumstances, the authors chronicle the crisis leading up to the Barbary Wars and their triumphant aftermath.

LION ADOPTS BABY ANTELOPE AND LOVINGLY LICKS IT CLEAN

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A few days ago I posted the case of the single dad lion who devotedly raised his orphaned cub after mom had died.  Here is another moving story showing the nurturing feelings of wild felines, which in many documented cases extend to babies of other species. 
A young lion was pictured licking an antelope calf clean in the Kruger National Park in South Africa after apparently picking the youngster up when it wandered off from its mother
Amazing moment lion adopts tiny newborn antelope carrying it in its mouth like a cub and even LICKING the calf clean
  • Graeme Mitchley captured the extraordinary moment a lion adopts a baby antelope at Kruger National Park, South Africa
  • Mr Mitchley said he doesn't know what became of the calf's mother or how the big cat got hold of it   But the teacher did witness the lion carrying the baby like a cub and attempting to lick its fur clean
  • Eventually the lion carried the cub out of sight, so Mr Mitchley says he doesn't know if the animal survived

    EUROPEAN STUDY FINDS MULTICULTURALISM OR ETHNIC DIVERSITY IS BAD FOR SOCIAL COHESION - VIDEOS

Unauthorized duplication of this blog's material is prohibited.   Excerpts and links may be used, provided that full credit and link is given to Otters and Science News Blogspot.  Link to this post:  http://ottersandsciencenews.blogspot.ca/2017/06/european-study-finds-multiculturalism.html - Thank you for visiting my blog.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    In the aftermath of more stabbings against non-Muslims and an apparent revenge vehicle ramming against Muslims in London, these articles and videos about diversity seem relevant.

    VIDEO - Andrew Klavan: Multiculturalism Explained - in less than three minutes
    • We are essentially tribal creatures.  It's our nature.  We are wired to be protective of our family, our clan, our religion, and our own country first.  
    • In animals this allegiance to the pack is regarded as an important tool for survival, but when humans exhibit this trait ideologues and politicians want to eradicate it, by stealth or by force if necessary.
    • This is utterly hypocritical, as we naturally continue to ally ourselves with our favorite sports team, our ethnic or national group, our language, and many other forms of tribal alliances.  We associate more with those who share our values. 
    • In Canada the French are still fierce defenders of their culture against English encroachment.  
    • Britain was until recent years in the grip of terror by Irish nationalists.
    • Tyrolean Austrians, forcibly annexed to Italy after World War II, still do not feel Italian and cling to their German language and culture.
    • The Catalan are desperately trying to gain independence from Spain.
    • The Olympic Games themselves are based on national and racial pride, not so much individual achievement.
    • The Soviets tried in vain to eradicate nationalism by upholding internationalism and by creating  the Soviet citizen.  The experiment completely failed. When the Soviet Union broke up, nationalisms were reignited.
    • Islam itself is a political system fated to create non-ending violence, as the two major branches of Islam, the Sunni and the Shia, have been killing each other for fourteen centuries in an ongoing carnage.
    • Islam has been oppressing and slaughtering non-Muslim minorities in their rapid historical expansion into much of Asia and Africa.   
    • The French and the British drew new borders in the Middle East in the early 20th century, placing Shia and Sunni together in the same countries.  We are still witnessing the explosive results as they continue to blow each other up.
    • You yourself can probably name dozens of other cases of tribalism, some more violent than others, maybe in your own city and neighborhood. 
    • Tribalism is not an aberration but a natural human attribute, and should be taken into account when drawing borders and when separating incompatible minorities.
    • These days social engineering in the form of forced ethnic diversity - instigated and implemented by globalists and socialists - is creating strife, resentment, and more tribalism, instead of uniting us.
    • A sprinkle of diversity works well, but not when you have resentful masses of very diverse people forced to live alongside each other, or when their interests are completely divergent. 
    • France successfully imported a lot of talent from other European countries and America, but their society began to unravel when millions of Muslims could not or would not be integrated.
    • Europe is rife with racial and tribal strife and the increased isolation of ethnic communities, including the ever widening Muslim No-Go Zones.
    • On top of that there has been a sickening spike in violent anti-Semitic attacks against European Jews perpetrated by Muslim migrants.  Imams call for the killing of Jews from their European mosques.  Thousands of Jews have already fled Europe for Israel and other countries.  Jew hatred is part of the Koran and Islam's history. 
    • If you think that time heals all wounds, think again.  Black nationalism and anti-white racism are on the rise in America, even after years of genuine efforts to integrate Afro-Americans.
    • Curiously, it is only white societies that are expected to invite and absorb other diverse cultures and races, while non-white societies seem to be exempt.  Nobody tells Mexico that it's 'too brown' and needs to diversify by bringing in more white immigrants.
    • The following article is based on a study carried out by a major Swedish university.  Considering how hard Sweden stifles its own national interests in defense of forced diversity through the absorption of millions of African and Middle Eastern refugees, one must take the study results as being somewhat restrained.  The reality of lingering tribalism in Sweden is much worse, particularly among non-Europeans who bring in fierce allegiances and antagonisms from their own societies.
    Study:  Diversity is Bad for Social Cohesion

    New research from Gothenburg University on solidarity in Sweden backs up evidence from previous studies that ethnic diversity is bad for social cohesion.
     
    Surveying 9,800 randomly selected people, the university’s SOM Institute looked at the degree to which people in Sweden are able to feel a connection with people who differ from themselves.  Researchers found that, outside of their own group, respondents are most inclined to feel an affinity with people whose education vastly differs from their own.    “Most also feel a relatively large affinity with those who have very different political views, a different sexual orientation or whose financial situation differs from their own,” science and technology magazine Forskning reports.  
     
    Respondents said they feel the least affinity with people with different ethnic backgrounds, who practice a different religion, or who were brought up in other cultures.

    • Aside from whether we like Trump or not, the alarming fact is that Republican and Democrat men and women elected to Congress are collaborating in a plot to topple the US president.  
    • The following video  and others on this page outline the choreography of the coup d'etat, and the background of those associated with bringing down the president through endless innuendo, attacks, and sordid investigations.   The most eloquent video is this one by Judge Jeanine Pirro.

    The Democrats are sleepwalking into a civil war. They want power, but like leftists from Russia to Cuba, they haven’t seriously contemplated the price that will have to paid for their bloody utopia.  (Daniel Greenfield)


    Killing Republicans to Save Health Care and the Planet  -  How the Left’s incitement to violence leads to terrorism.
    By Daniel Greenfield
    Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, 
    investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism.
     

    The Democratic National Committee announced that Resistance Summer would begin in June. James Hodgkinson, a Bernie Sanders volunteer, delivered by opening fire on Republicans playing baseball.
     
    Hodgkinson had spent the weeks before the shooting staring at the site of his future attack and working on his laptop. What was he doing on his laptop? Ranting about Trump and Republicans. 
     

    The assassin was a pro-Bernie Sanders activist,

    and inveterate Trump hater

    The left-wing terrorist who opened fire on Republicans practicing for a charity baseball game, an event to which they had brought their children, didn’t come up with his own ideas. His Facebook pages were dumpsters rotting with reposted left-wing hate. There was Bill Moyers' Resistance plan along with Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Rachel Maddow, Robert Reich and Noam Chomsky.
     
    They helped shape Hodgkinson’s conviction that Republicans had to be destroyed. Or as the title of a Facebook group that he belonged to put it, “Terminate the Republican Party.”

    HOW BACTERIA HELP CARNIVORE PITCHER PLANTS CATCH PREY - One of so many examples of bacteria helping their animal and plant hosts survive

    There are countless examples of life-enabling collaboration between bacteria and their animal or plant hosts.  We humans, for example, benefit from bacteria living in our guts to help us digest food.  And 90% of our cells are bacterial.  We look human because our cells are bigger, that's all.    Here is another surprising example of important collaboration between bacteria and other living things:

    How Bacteria Help Pitcher Plants Trap Prey
    • Pity the insect that tumbles into a pitcher plant’s trap. The slippery walls and waiting pool of water ensure it won’t clamber back out. There’s nothing left to do but wait to be digested.
    • The California pitcher plant (Darlingtonia californica) is also called the cobra lily for its curled-over shape that hides its exit from its victims.
    • Unlike other pitcher plants, it doesn’t fill its trap from above with rainwater but from below, drawing water up with its roots. But like others, it seems to use bacteria living in that well to help digest its prey.  
    • The bacteria perform another role too: making the liquid even harder for an insect to escape than ordinary water.

    ANTI-TRUMP DEMOCRATS, MEDIA, CELEBRITIES HAVE BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS - The relentless hate campaign against the Trump administration is aimed at inciting assassination and a coup d'etat

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Forms of artistic expression supported by anti-Trump media, politicians and celebrities
    • The level of violence and viciousness against the Trump administration and its supporters would have never been acceptable had it been directed against Obama or any other Democrat.  
    • It's not just the violence in their words and acts, but the utter vulgarity and depravity in their vocabulary and imagery - some of which you will see in the following article - which indicates disturbing moral degradation and something akin to mental illness.  These are representatives of our 'culture'. 
    • Up until now there has been no significant effort on the  part of the Democrat leadership to curb either physical or verbal violence. 
    • In the meantime Congressman Steve Scalise fights for his life in a Washington hospital after being shot at by an anti-Trump Democrat activist at a Republican baseball practice game.  Three other victims were also shot and seriously injured by the assailant, including two police officers, a lobbyist and a congressional staffer.  Beitbart
     
    In the aftermath of the latest assassination attempt, the mainstream media is going through contortions in order to deflect any complicity in their ongoing incitement against the Trump administration, and their tacit or explicit support for those who call for violence against Trump and his supporters. 

    The media and Democrat politicians are using this tragedy to promote their anti-gun agenda, in spite of the fact that had more people been armed at that baseball game, the assassin would have been taken down much sooner.

    15 Times Celebrities Envisioned Violence Against Trump and the GOP


    Hollywood has issued dire predictions and hysterical warnings about Donald Trump ever since the Republican businessman first announced his candidacy for the presidency in June 2015.

    But the level of vitriol and violent rhetoric against now-President Trump has increased substantially in recent weeks, from comedian Kathy Griffin’s now-famous shock “beheading” photograph to Shakespeare in the Park’s not-at-all-subtle “assassination” of Trump on a stage in New York City’s Central Park.  

    Unfortunately, Griffin and the director of Julius Caesar are not anomalies in Hollywood; actors, writers, directors, and other celebrities have fantasized about using violence against Trump, his supporters, and other GOP lawmakers for at least the past 18 months.

    Below are 15 examples of celebrities who have used pointed, violent rhetoric to attack the president and other Republicans.

    WHY DID THERESA MAY SABOTAGE BREXIT by calling for a risky and unnecessary election?

    Theresa May was always against Brexit.  Did she sabotage it deliberately, or did someone persuade her this election was a good idea?

    By Zbiegniew Zwgstkstwig
     
    The sinister world of a globalist puppet.
     
    There was something very suspicious in Theresa May's sudden call for a new election at a time when neither her party nor the country needed one.  
     
    Theresa May was always against Brexit until she happened to become Prime Minister after the referendum. 
     
    Brexit won but only by a small majority.  The country appeared to be equally divided on the subject.  A new election was another opportunity for the Remain camp after their defeat - another referendum, in fact.
     
    After the referendumTheresa May appeared to be thoroughly committed to Brexit.  But, was she sincere? 
     
    Theresa May is just a globalist puppet.  In the dark and malevolent globalist world the job of any PM is expendable, just a minor detail. 
    Mrs May has lost this General Election.
    Theresa May in the USA:  Islam is Peaceful,
     Globalism and Multiculturalism Good
     
    What the globalists truly wanted was to put as many obstacles as possible in the path to Britain's independence from the EU.    If Theresa May became a political casualty in the process, that is a mere detail in the big globalist picture.   
     
    And think about it:  this election was perfect.  It gave the malcontents another chance to round up more ethnic and youth voters to oppose the Conservatives' Brexit.  
     
    Theresa May was the globalists puppet and she performed as required, with a clumsy and ineffective electoral campaign that allowed the opposition to make big advances.
     
    Brexit is toast.  Negotiations will be geared towards a soft exit, instead of the drastic independence act that voters chose in the referendum.  A soft exit means that there won't be a true divorce, only an arrangement that will satisfy no one, and Britain will remain enslaved to the EU forever.
     
    What were voters thinking?   Another issue is that Labour won more seats.  Why?  This party is rife with anti-Semitism and in favor of unlimited migration from the third world into the UK.  
     
    This at a time when Britain is under siege by ISIS-inspired terrorists, when the country has 3,000 hard core terrorists under surveillance, and another 30,000 jihadists that the state is unable to watch. Thanks to unrestricted immigration jihadists' numbers keep growing, outpacing police resources.
     
    The British people have not only surrendered to this situation but on top of that a significant number of Labour supporters voted for MORE OF THE SAME!!!
     
    Oh, and by the way, UKIP, the only political party opposing immigration, received a pathetic number of votes.   Which goes to show that the British people are quite happy to let their nation transform itself into a colony of the same people they once colonized.  
     
    You could not make this up.

    DOG FOOD RECALL - Party Animal Cocolicious brand dog food contained too much Pentobarbital, a drug used to euthanize pets - Bodies of euthanized pets are sold to some pet food companies to be used as ingredients, including those of animals with tumors and cancers - PLEASE, TRY TO FEED YOUR PET HOME MADE FOOD

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Pet food manufacturer Party Animal voluntarily recalled two variants of their Cocolicious brand dog food after it was determined to be contaminated with pentobarbital, a pet euthanasia drug.  
    • The news report by Pet Health News reproduced on this page fails to mention WHY there was PENTOBARBITAL - an euthanasia drug - in dog food. 
    • The disgusting truth is that the bodies of pets who have been put to sleep are sold to pet food companies to be used as protein in their ingredients. 
    • Aside from the problematic issue of cannibalism itself, keep in mind that euthanized pets often have tumors, cancers, and other diseases.  It all goes into the big pot of ingredients.   
    • The drug itself is toxic if ingested in small amounts over a long period of time. 
    • When amounts are small they go unnoticed but they are damaging to the pet's health in the long run. 
    • In this case there was so much of it in their food that pets got very sick and vets alerted owners of the presence of Pentobarbital in their dog's food. 
    VIDEO:  Former AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) President admits pet food may contain pets.
     
     
    Even the most prestigious pet brands may contain ingredients that are pre-manufactured in China, a country that is notorious for its lower safety standards.
