Restoring the values that made our country great.
One of the major issues in today’s world is the threat of Islamic terrorism.
While many think the threat of Islamic terrorism is something new, it isn’t, conflicts between Islam and Christianity is nothing new, there has been a conflict since the beginning of Islam.
In an indirect way, this conflict lead to the discovery of America.
During the conflict in the middle ages, the Turks hadn’t cut off the trade routes to the far east, as a result, Europeans could no longer trade with countries in the far east and could no longer get the spices they desired without traveling around Africa. This was a long and treacherous journey, the cost of such a journey drove up the prices of the goods to make them unfordable to the Europeans.
In response to this issue, the European countries needed to find an alternate route to the Far East.
Columbus came to the rescue and may have never been able to convince Spain to fund this dangerous mission for his world-changing voyage and America may not have been discovered for another several hundred years hadn’t there been an urgent need.
it is true, not all Muslims are terrorists, in fact, the majority aren’t, they are good people just like most people in every other ethnic group. In reality, probably ninety-five percent of the people in the world are good people , regardless of culture or background.
However, if only ten percent of Islamics are terrorists, by sheer numbers, they still outnumber any other group and by this factor, create a problem for the rest of us.
The issues of Islam stems from the extremists in the religion who only want to terrorize and control all who disagree with them.
They will do anything to further their agenda, including killing infidels, or anyone who disagrees with them, including those in their own religion.
It is time the world deals with this tremendous problem. It isn’t going away, and won’t be resolved by ignoring it, pretending it doesn’t exist, or trying to be politically correct, afraid to insult or humiliate anyone. We need to face up to the facts and deal with it.
The problem won’t go away by not calling it what it is.
As I explain in my new book, The Wisdom Of Our Ancestors, we can once again bring America to greatness by restoring the values that made America great!
