in response to reader comment: Voltaire is spinning in his grave

The crusades, as you well know, ended up in abject failure, a decisive defeat in karney Hittim 1187. the only crusade the West has enbarked on since 1972 when 11 Jewish athletes were murdered in Munchen is the crusade to minimise the strength of the jewish nation, and to augment the demands of the Islamists to abolish the Jewish nation.

So many plans, so many state visits, so many resolutions, so many "peace" initiatives, all designed to placate Islamist rage. Europe and her American minions, including Holland, have done their best to appease the islamist beast with Jewish flesh, Jewish Land. Well guess what, the beast will not be satisfied with that tiny morsel. it is after bigger game, especially since the Crusading response of Holland is Dutch immigration. Or the sales of Nuclear reactors to Iran. Or the flight of Orriana Falacci to the USA.

Europe today is feebler than Europe of 1095, so that besides the use of the Crusades as a propaganda Bludgeon, no one in the Islamist world is truly scared of any Crusader-like rage. Look and Eurabia and tell me it is not ready to assume the position and pay the Jizzia.
