Editor's Note:

Many Americans Are Apathetic & Unaware...simply because the mainstream media television is, for whatever reasons, unwilling to give the general public the 'hard news and pictures', so it becomes the moral responsibility of a few serious bloggers to expose, with photos, the gross brutalities you will see here in future posts.

For More Info, simply scroll down our 'Recent posts' (left column) to Innoncence Lost, 'Signs of the Times', or "Jihad, by any means available" by the former Federal Prosecutor, Andrew McCarthy. He's on our Links-page as 'No Slappz', and is the author of his recent book "GRAND JIHAD, how Islam & the Left...SABOTAGE AMERICA."

Satyameva Jayate (Truth Alone Triumps!)

The Self is the sun shining in the sky,
The wind blowing in space; he is the fire
At the Alter and in the home the guest;
He dwells in human beings, in gods, in truth.
And in the vast firmament. he is the fish
Born in water, the plant growing in earth,
The river flowing down the mountain
For this Self is Supreme!

{ Katha Upanishad 11.2.2 }

Anon,

Not to mention the 70 to 80 million Hindus killed in a more than a millennium of jihad.

Or the fall of Constantinople in 1453.

Or the Janissaries, Christian boys taken from their homes and made into monsters for Allah, who would later war against their own people.

Or the Armenian genocide at the dawn of the last century.

gba says,

Read a few of historian Martel Sobieskey's views on war, and its close relationship to cultural genocide by Allah's warriors.

Submission, and total domination of all nations is their goal; peace in our time is a delusion.
