Islamic violence in Europe dates further back than 1979 in Europe.Go back in history to Isabella of Spain and you will now get an understanding of why she took a tough stand against Islamic Fundamentalism.And why it was necesary to hold the Spanish Inquisition."Modern Europe" is about to get a taste and is now getting a taste of a culture that hasn't changed in centuries.One reason for the hatred of America and President George Bush is that leaders,both political and religious, are so currupt in Muslim countries not to mention total failures when it comes to the economic success of their countries and people they have to unite their people in hatred against a common enemy to stay in power.Stay tuned for more of the same.
