Arvind, I second every thing you say in your post. Spain waited over 700 years to kick out the Islamic invaders out of their land, and " kicking out" they did, extremely well. But the Islamists try to paint a rosy picture of the harmony that existed while they were in control of Spain, which is a blatant lie - If you repeat a lie 100 times, then for them, it becomes the truth. If it was so harmonious why did the Spaniards kick them out? They never did capitulate. No one in their right mind will despise & throw away something good. The Spaniards despised their dimmi status all along and waited for the right moment to act.

I think, the only other country to suffer annihilation at the hands of the Islamists, was India. India stood up to them at every attempt to take over and threw out the Mughal emperors. But by then, so many Hindu Indians had succumbed; they are todays Pakistanis, Bangladeshis and the Muslims of India. They are all converts from Hinduism.

I agree with you, that the jihad the Western world faces today is identical in its motivations and goals to that which Europe & India managed to stave off almost a thousand years ago - thanks in large part to the Crusades of which the West is now ashamed. Today's jihad, is proceeding on two fronts: one of violence and terror, and another of cultural shaming and the rewriting of history, mass immigration and high birth rates among Muslim immigrants. If the wast does not arise from its slumber quickly, they are doomed for a future of dhimmihood.

We have to open our eyes and do away with the politically correct myths about a tolerant, peaceful Islam, being denigrated by the West, this is poisonous propaganda by the Islamists, their apologists and the "do gooder" leftists. They are digging their own grave step at a time.

Failure to come to grips with the Islamic threat by the Western elite and by not treating Islam as a Political entity , which has a global agenda to control the world with its sharia laws & political jihad (supported by the Petro-dollars of the Saudi's), we in the west are in denial right now.
