A Brief History of Violent Islamic Jihadism

Al Hijra is happening now, along with violent Islamic jihadism. This is the current phase in which we find ourselves today.

We need leaders who are students of history and comprehend the various phases of Islam (or who are at least willing to admit to the facts.) First Mecca, Medina, Second Mecca and the global jihad.

Those who continue to drone on about the “peaceful” Islam must come to realize that period is what’s called the First Mecca phase and lasted from 610-622 AD. Upon Mohammad departing Mecca, in what’s referred to as Al Hijra for Medina, Islam took a violent turn — starting with the Nakhla raid, led by Mohammad, followed by approximately another 30 combat operations.

This ended with the taking of Mecca, second phase, in the 628 AD Battle of the Trenches. At Mohammad’s command, some 3,000 male members of the Banu Qurayza tribe were beheaded.

Then came the export of Islamic jihadism globally, initiated by Mohammad’s letter to Byzantine Emperor Heraclius offering three options — conversion, subjugation/submission or death.

It took a while, but Constantinople fell in 1453 AD. And if it hadn’t been for the Venetian fleet’s victory at the naval Battle of Lepanto in 1571 and the Germanic and Polish knights’ at the Gates of Vienna in 1683, Europe could look very different.

Even Thomas Jefferson realized after meeting with the Dey of Algiers in Paris that this is an enemy that can’t be appeased, and paying jizya is a version of subjugation. And some things haven’t changed as we still have people who say we don’t need to respond with strength and might, because that’ll just inflame the situation.
