The Black Hole of History

The Black Hole of History

Everybody knows that Turkey, Egypt, North Africa, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and other Islamic nations (there are 57 in all) are nearly 100% Muslim. Those countries were Christian, Buddhist and Hindu. Exactly how did this change to Muslim happen?

When you read history it seems that Islam came, and, magically, the countries are Islamic. But of course an event of this magnitude did not simply happen. But our schools insist that Islam “just happens.” In fact, the entire history of the rise of Islamic imperialism is denied in the curriculum of our private, state and religious schools. Our schools don’t teach how Islam transforms each and every nation it invades to pure Islam, how it happens and what the consequences are. This is the law of Islamic saturation.

Our history denies the truth of the Islamification of civilizations. Actually, our history denies that Islam is even involved. It was the Turks, the Arabs, the Moors and so on. There is no Islam, just some ethnic group.

Look even closer at the history and ask this question: how many Kafirs (non-Muslims) died in Islamic conquest? You may find a number of dead here and there at a particular battle, but the establishment answer of the number murdered by jihad is zero, zip, none. In fact, there was not even a category called “jihad deaths.” You see, Islam just happens.

After 9/11, there was an intellectual response to the establishment intellectual vacuum about how Islam actually functioned. A revolution of new scholarship on Islam was created by those amateur scholars who are outside the brain-dead establishment academy. The minds and labors of Bat Ye’or, Spencer, Trifkovic, Bostom, Warraq, Warner, Phares and many others tackled the problem of the true nature of Islam. The new scholarship gave answers to all of the questions about Islamic colonization of the world.

For the deaths caused by Sharia law, the Center for the Study of Political Islam coined the name, Tears of Jihad. There is no way to actually come up with a precise number of deaths, because Islam has written the history (after all, they were the winners) and, of course, the history is all beautiful. There is only one way to even get close to a precise answer and that is for the academy to take up this subject and treat it as a priority. Conferences would be held, papers given, journals published with peer reviews and the rest of the academic critical thought process would go on for decades and many papers.

If the answer to the total jihad deaths is not zero, then CSPI proposes that 270 million Kafirs have been murdered over the last 1400 years. This figure includes 60 million Christians and 80 million Hindus. What if only 30 million Christians had been killed? Does that mean that churches should continue to ignore the Coptic murders in Egypt today and deny the million Armenians killed in the 20th century? Would Hindus have more or less courage if only 50 million, instead of 80 million had been murdered?

This is a civilizational problem, not an accounting problem. It is not that we deny that 270 million have been killed by jihad; we deny that Islam is even at war with all Kafirs and Kafir civilization. A better kill number won’t erase the cowardice that blinds us today to an acknowledgment that Islam has a history of annihilating all civilization—the law of Islamic saturation.

It is interesting to see people’s reaction to the numbers. The vast majority ignore them. They don’t want to know. The most political figure is the number of Africans killed in jihad for the slave trade. The establishment tells us that all slaves were brought here from the West coast of Africa by Christians. It turns out that the slave trade was also on the Mediterranean and the east coast of Africa and each and everyone of the wholesalers in Africa were Muslims. This knowledge violates the establishment dogma of Christian evil.

One of the failures of the number 270 million is that it does not include the number of the Zoroastrians killed in Persia and other minorities such as the Sabians and Bahai. Who knows how many peasants died in some village without a name, simply because they did not believe that Mohammed was the prophet of Allah?

So, if the number is not 270 million, then what is a better number? Use critical thought to answer this problem, and don’t tell us that the number is zero. Give us an improvement, not a denial. We have had denial for 1400 years.

Facts and numbers are important but the real tragedy here is that our schools don’t teach the history that is the source the world’s greatest suffering caused by Islamic jihad imperialism. Since establishment professors and historians refuse to touch the subject of the Tears of Jihad, we must depend upon other scholarship to address the question of how we get the exact numbers. To that end, if you can improve any of the death figures with factual data, go to /blog/the-black-hole-of-history/ and give us your information.

"Excellent article, as always. I always forward your emails of these to my group of anti-Islamist friends.

But you mention the slave trade in the Med region and I wonder, speaking of something we are never taught, if you knew about the 1.3 million European Christians who were taken as slaves by N. African Muslims in their hatred of Christianity and worked/starved to death from about 1530 to 1816?

No western government did much of anything about this atrocity until Lord Exmouth (a descendent of one of the slaves profiled in the following book) ended the kidnappings in 1816 by destroying Algiers. (Even the governor of North Carolina was captured and enslaved).

It's all in the excellent and interesting book, "White Gold" by Giles Milton. If you haven't read this, please do. Something to add to your library of Islam's crimes against humanity.

Keep us the good work! Jay"

"Your article is so true, unfortunately there are teachers and the politically correct who simply deny the truth.

Perhaps they will learn when Iran acquires nuclear weapons, of course by then it will be too late.

Everyone should read The Life and Religion of Mohammed, by J.L. Menezes and discover who Mohammed really was."

"Invasive (conquering) forces of a different nation were present on European soil well into the 20th Century - Macedonia was "freed" only in 1912, much of Greece was a "disputed territory" with a most recent foreful attack on the Greek Orthodox Christian Cyprus. As late as In 1983, Turkish Cypriots proclaimed the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, which is recognised only by Turkey. As of today, there are 1,534 Greek Cypriots and 502 Turkish Cypriots. And even this is not challenged by the "Western civilisation" in spite of the fact that the United Kingdom has two military bases on the same island (British military bases of Akrotiri and Dhekelia.). The Western powers have consistently played into the hands of Islam. If we go back to the time before Muhammad, most of Saudi Arabia and Asia Minor were actually Jewish Bedouin tribes including today's most prominent Islamic centers Mecca and Medina. The only way it would spred (and it's certanly not proselytizing or missionaries, was by brute force of the sword and a threat of loss of liberties for Non-Muslims along with higher taxes, etc."

"I wonder who did the killing in Rwanda? The victims were Tutsi and Hutu Christians and the few Jews that lived there. There is no history to show who did the killing except that it was "ethnic cleansing" How can that be when the victims were both Hutu and Tutsi.
I remember the 'refugee' camps in Zaire, now the DRC, I lived it and worked in the camps."

"Thank you for the very excellent work you are doing to correct the inaccurate history (or shall I say ignorance) of political Islam. Only a few such as you are willing to wave a flag in this consuming storm."

"To get a figure that has the smile of scholarship, I suggest the following:
Analyze Muslim takeover of countries in recent times about which considerable data exists. What was the non-Muslim population before the Muslims came and how many of them disappeared? (Nearly all of them in most cases.) Try to estimate how many of the latter group emigrated and how many converted to save their lives. The remainder presumably were killed. Do this for several countries where no significant non-Muslim population now exists. That is, the process of "simulation" is complete. Apply this average to former centuries. The result should be a stab (excuse the term) at the number you are looking for."

"Jihadology 101 should be the title of this new historical study.

The history of jihad is an extremely important part of human history and Bill is totally correct...Western academia has acted braindead by neglecting jihad as a valid subject in universities.

It is the fault of cowardly academics that jihad has been left to amateur historians!

Shame on them!

Thanks again, Bill, for seeing this."

For years, I've been trying to bring out the point that African Muslims sold so many Africans into slavery. Slavery has never been an exclusively Christian evil.

And it was Christians who abolished slavery in the West. Slavery still continues in Islamic countries -- behind the iron veil."

"The poster pittigemaki posts a link to an article http://koenraadelst.bharatvani.org/articles/irin/genocide.html.

That article includes the statement: "In the Muslim world, male slaves were often castrated, which partly explains why Iraq has no Black population even though it once had hundreds of thousands of Black slaves."

The truth is, Iraq has a black population, which has existed for a long while, and numbers approx 300,000 now.

http://www.alternet.org/story/17339/

However, the article's point about the effect of the Islamic policy of castration on black population still stands."

"Considering Zionism responsible for the ZioBolshevik genocides, starting WWI, WWII, Korean War, Iraq War, Afghanistan War, Great Depression...in the past 100 years alone Zionism has caused over 200 million deaths, so it far outpaces Islam."

"I find much of your interpretation of Islam to be bias and ignorant, as well as your knowledge of the current academic community.

I have taken courses in political Islam that address literally all of the aspects you claim are hidden by school systems.

Also, your opening statement is inherently ignorant. None of those nations have 100% Muslim populations. None. And not all states with large Muslim populations are "Islamic nations". Very few accept Islam as the official state religion. This does not mean that Islam does not heavily influence governmental activities. However, that is unavoidable in a culture where the division of church and state is not the historical norm, nor is it an ideal held by much of the population.

I appreciate your article, but I would like you to be aware of your blatant misinformation."
