Even before Austin and Geoghegan met their untimely end, they had problems. In Namibia, Geoghegan picked up a stomach virus. (As Austin wrote on his blog: “she curls into the fetal position and rests, eyes closed, fighting chills and nausea and fatigue. There's little that we can do at the moment. I give her some ibuprofen.” Whereupon they resume biking.) Also in Namibia, they were almost hit by a car while bicycling along a highway. In Botswana, they both got sick. In Zambia, Austin had a serious bike crash that sent him flying and left him bleeding all over. In Malawi, he got malaria. In Tanzania, a man tried to bully him into forking over some money. In Ceuta, a driver tried to run him over, and another rear-ended him. In Spain, Geoghegan got conjunctivitis. In Marseilles, she had to be hospitalized for an ear infection that had rendered her deaf. Given the dangers they braved, indeed, they were fortunate to have made it as far as Tajikistan.


Archetypal TWOGS! Third World Groupies! :P

Well they had fun while it lasted . . .

The Martyrs of Otranto: Lessons from Christian Victims of Jihad

By Raymond Ibrahim

A little remembered event that occurred 538 years ago today – the ritual decapitation of 800 Christians who refused Islam – sheds much light on modern questions concerning the ongoing conflict between Islam and the West.

Context: Though primarily remembered for sacking Constantinople in 1453, because Ottoman sultan Mehmed II was only twenty-one years old then, he still had many good decades of jihading before him. He continued expanding into the Balkans, and, in his bid to feed his horses on the altar of Saint Peter's basilica – Muslim prophecies held that "we will conquer Constantinople before we conquer Rome" – he invaded Italy and captured Otranto in 1480. More than half of its twenty-two thousand inhabitants were massacred, five thousand led away in chains.

To demonstrate his magnanimity, Mehmed offered freedom and security to 800 chained Christian captives. All they had to do was embrace Islam. Instead, they unanimously chose to act on the words of one of their numbers: "My brothers, we have fought to save our city; now it is time to battle for our souls!"

Outraged that his invitation was spurned, on August 14, on a hilltop (subsequently named "Martyr's Hill"), Mehmed ordered the ritual decapitation of these 800 unfortunates. Their archbishop was slowly sawed in half to jeers and triumphant cries of "Allah akbar!" (The skulls and bones of some of these defiant Christians were preserved and can still be seen in the Cathedral of Otranto.)

Now consider what this event says about current realities.

First, whenever Islamic individuals or organizations engage in violence against non-Muslims – and cite Islam as the reason for their behavior – we are instantly told the exact opposite: that they are mere criminals and psychopaths, that their actions have "nothing to do with the reality of Islam," to quote John McCain.

Yet it was not just run-of-the-mill "Muslims" who committed atrocities atop Martyr's Hill, but the official leader of Sunni Islam – the sultan himself, who always had a pack of Muslim ulema – clerics, scholars, and muftis – to guide and confirm his decisions vis-à-vis infidels (including massacring those who reject Islam).

Nor was Otranto an aberration. As documented in my new book, Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West, Islam's official leaders and spokesmen – from sultans and caliphs to ulema and sheikhs – have always spoken and acted just like the Islamic State (or rather vice versa).

Also interesting to reflect on is how even then, over half a millennium ago, Western nations preferred to engage in denial and wishful thinking over coming to grips with reality or aiding their beleaguered coreligionists. Soon after the Otranto massacre, Pope Sixtus IV chided an indifferent West accordingly:

Let them not think that they are protected against invasion, those who are at a distance from the theatre of war! They, too, will bow the neck beneath the yoke, and be mowed down by the sword, unless they come forward to meet the invader. The Turks have sworn the extinction of Christianity. A truce to sophistries! It is the moment not to talk, but to act and fight!


Such laments were not uncommon; nearly a century later, in 1565, as a massive Islamic armament was sailing over to besiege the tiny island of Malta, Pope Pius IV complained that the king of Spain "has withdrawn into the woods and France, England and Scotland [are] ruled by women and boys."

Finally, and not unlike today, whereas the mass of Western people were ignorant of Islam's doings, a minority were always keenly aware, including from a historical perspective. Consider Sebastian Brant (b. 1457)'s "Ship of Fools," a satirical poem on the gradual nature of Islam's advances against a "sleeping" Christendom:

Our faith was strong in the Orient
It ruled in all of Asia in Moorish lands and Africa
But now [and since the seventh century] for us these lands are gone...
We perish sleeping one and all
The wolf has come into the stall
And steals the Holy Church's sheep
The while the shepherd lies asleep
Four sisters of our Church you find
They're of the patriarchic kind
Constantinople, Alexandria, Jerusalem, Antioch
But they've been forfeited and sacked
And soon the head [Rome] will be attacked.


As the poem's continuity suggests, learned Europeans saw the Ottoman scourge as the latest in a continuum of Islamic terror, for whereas the Arabs were "the first troops of locusts" that appeared "about the year 630," to quote a contemporary English clergyman, "the Turks, a brood of vipers, [are] worse than their parent ... the Saracens, their mother."

The same observations of continuity can be made about the Islamic State and every other jihadi organization.

Editor's note: A portion of this article is excerpted from the author's new book, Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West. All quotes are sourced there.



Sadly, the Muslims are still killing Christians today on a regular basis because they will not submit to Islam.

New Mexico compound mysteriously destroyed by authorities

Following a court order, authorities seized an RV at the New Mexico compound where five adults are believed to have been abusing 11 children and training them for school shootings. An underground tunnel at the site where remains of a 3-year-old were found is now buried in rubble, as ammo and a bulletproof vest sit in piles of uncollected trash.

Why would they bulldoze this crime site?

It's in the middle of the fricken desert....its not as if this is a crime scene in the middle of a busy highway...where you would need to get things back to normal due to traffic.

Pierre Manent: Beyond Radical Secularism
Posted on August 12, 2018 by Baron Bodissey
20

Thomas Bertonneau’s latest essay is a review of a recent book by the French political scientist Pierre Manent.

Pierre Manent: Beyond Radical Secularism — How France and the Christian West Should Respond to the Islamic Challenge

Reviewed by Thomas F. Bertonneau

(Continued)
https://gatesofvienna.net/2018/08/pierr ... ecularism/
Included in the book review is this summary of Manent's guide to de-Islamisting:
Quote:
Manent’s multi-part thesis, which also constitutes the outline of a program, might be summed up as follows:
(1) that the Muslims of France are there to stay;
(2) that their sodality poses a problem, characterized as it currently is by hostility to the host-country;
(3) that, however, the nation of France also has a problem — namely that it is no longer a nation whose people acknowledge a common cultural content and pursue common concerns, but that it has become a socially atomistic rights-based polity that pits itself, in effect, against the idea of nationhood;
(4) that the solution to the Muslim problem requires first the restoration of French nationhood and the revival of citizenship;
(5) that if the restoration of nationhood were to happen, the revived nation and its citizens would be justified in asking French Muslims what they see as their citizen-role in the nation and what they want from the nation, which, Manent argues, is currently not the case; and
(6) that Muslims, as the condition of the extension to them of a revived citizenship, must accede to the demand to be loyal to the nation first and to limit what they want on the basis of that loyalty.

Both the argument and the implied program contain a good many ifs. Manent also appears to assume that nothing will stop Muslim immigration and that Muslims are in Europe, and in France, to stay. Maybe that is so. Those many ifs might nevertheless constitute a noticeable glitch in Manent’s persuasiveness.

Interesting. Not sure that "nationalism" is necessary to recognize that Islam must be reformed or expunged and eventually forced to reform.

Islam is just as incompatible with French democratic secularism as it is with all the Anglo forms and most of the other younger forms of Euro democratic secularism.

In sum, all that is really necessary is a recognition that: (a) there IS a Western Civilization; (b) we are all (French, Italian, Swiss, Belgian, Dutch, Brit, Swedish, Norwegian, Canadian, American, Australian, and yes even [by degrees] Mexico, Philippines, Hong Kong, Singapore [if not much larger swaths of Indonesia], India even . . .) "part of it." (c) Islam is incompatible with it, for several key reasons: (i) Islam rejects any acceptance or coexistence with any other worldview; (ii) Islam holds at its roots a conception of its utmost superiority over all other worldviews; (iii) Islam rejects many of the fundamental tenants of "Westernism," including, the primacy of individual liberty, etc.

Nationalism might be the easiest way to "turn on" the critical thinking necessary, but in truth all that is necessary is critical thinking, and open discourse which is not stifled by witch hunt accusations of bigotry and prejudice simply because one seeks to accurately compare and contrast two very distinctive cultural traditions and account empirically for how they do and do not match up.

I wonder about that "forced to reform" part.

Did the Cathaholics reform due to EXTERNAL pressure (forcing) or internal pressure?

I think internal, and I suspect so will the moozlims ... it is actually better to pull out and let them focus on fighting each other, rather than to give them a common enemy to rally against and forget their differences. Arguably, our "interference" strategy actually delays their reformation. Now after 9/11 I would've rubbled TTHM and The head lodges of the taliban and where ever I though uncle bin was ... and continued to hunt him down if he was still alive ... but other than that ... and some word slinging ... I would've stayed out of land wars on their ground ... we've hurt our position far more than theirs by our actions over the past 17 years.
