How did the Romans defeat Carthage?

First they denied Hannibal a battle he had desired, by drawing the battle away from the Roman capital.

Next - to finally dismantle the Carthage - way of live / kingdom in North Africa, the Romans blogged them. The Carthaginian used to kill/sacrifice their first born. These and other strange practices were fully exploited by the Romans, to fully dismantle the Carthaginian Empire.

While the Islam's elite hope to infect us with a dose of Sharia in government and in politics. We should understand this for what it is and retaliate.

Islam has a few exploitable details. Namely Allah's connection to the Pre-Islamic Kaaba, also the name of the pre-Islamic religion, this God had three daughters. One of these daughters Leto / Latu may have been borrowed by the Greeks and was a Moon goddesses and mother to Apollo. Hajj was a pre-Islamic practice - were any God could be worshipped. To create Islam Muhammad simply wiped away the three daughter goddesses and kept their father, claiming that there is no god but Allah - on pain of death.

Most of what was considered Islamic even the arrangement of the Koran was actually done in Syria. Without Syria we might not have the Islam of today - there the five pillars of Islam were invented and possibly the Jewish/Christian connection inserted in this Kaaba religion to give it the respectability needed to be taken seriously in the modern world. This then was handed back to the Arabs in a ready-made pre-packaged religion of Islam. Of course these nomadic types had no idea of the thing it could have become - see - Moors of Spain who were Syrian and not Arab - and transformed Islam into this backward Wahabism mess that we see today.

A more humble Islam is what this world needs.

We might have to blog them to death or at least into submission.
