"Jefferson and Adams, in their subsequent report to the Continental Congress, recorded the Tripolitan Ambassador's justification [for Barbary Piracy]:

… that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise."

It is very sad, indeed, that if only we knew and understood our history, we would know that the battle with Islam will go on until one side or the other is eliminated. There can be no appeasement; no reproachment. There must be victory! That's not what we want, but since it is what they want, we have no choice but to deal with them in the manner they treat us. Anything short of that is suicidal folly.
