Today in History: Eternal cycle of “black flags of Khorasan” begins (747)

John RobsonResident Historian
 

On June 9 back in 747 the infamous “black flags of Khorasan”, supposed heralds of a new era of Islamic unity and purity, first made their appearance in the Abbasid revolt. 

Since then they have been unfurled in various forms countless times, because Islam’s difficulty separating mosque and state creates unrealistic expectations of earthly governments followed by violent revolt against their inadequacies by bleak purists in a dismal cycle.

It’s time to show your support for “western civilization” by visiting Pegida Canada on Facebook.

https://www.facebook.com/Pegida.canada

Please be sure to “LIKE” the page. More than 14,000 already recently have. That’s almost as much as Pegida America, and they have 10 times our population!

The above mentioned “unrealistic expectations” is just like the lefties.They demand absolute perfection from every one, everything and every situation. This demand constantly shifts since they have no moral foundation so they can never be satisfied or placated- just like Islam.

I was sitting in my neighborhood Timmie’s around 0945 this morning having a coffee. Four suntanned-looking young ladies walked in, talking among themselves in Urdu. Three of them wore shorts and sleeveless tops, the fourth wore a hijab smartly accessorized with sausage-casing yoga pants. They all bought food and coffee, and as soon as they left, two of them lit up smokes. The “virtue police” were nowhere to be seen.
Ramadan? Just another day in Calgarystan.

Chomsky teaches at MIT in the USA. His books are best sellers. His lectures fill auditoriums. His followers are moronic true believers, at best……… dangerous anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-capitalist,
neo-Marxist “social justice warriors” more often.

I should have also mentioned Noam Chomsky (arguably the most evil ideologue in the USA or even the Western World) who supports Islamic terrorism. (He supported Pol Pots genocide…2 million dead…in Cambodia in the late 1970s.) Chomsky and his Chomskyite minions (and they are legion amongst the liberal left) are dangerously evil.

This black flag is the banner of the nost vicious ideology in modern history…more so than Nazism, Stalinism, Maoism, Marxism-Leninism, Pol Pot and the Kmer Rouge, etc.
ISIS is evil.
Islamic Jihad is evil.
Islam is evil.

Ramadan by the numbers

Ramadan Bombathon 2016 Day number 4

UPDATED . . . UPDATED

Muslims often insist that other religions are just as violent as theirs and that the bigger problem is “Islamophobia”.
We put that narrative to the rest each Ramadan with a running count of ALL terror attacks categorized by motive.

Motive – Terror in the name of Islam………………..Attacks = 45……….Kills = 268
Motive – All other religions combined …………….Attacks = 0…………Kills = 0
Motive – By Islamophobes…………………………….Attacks = 0…………Kills = 0
