Telling the truth about Thomas Jefferson’s war against Jihad is not “bigotry”.

My response to I simply quoted, word-for-word what the Muslim Ambassador told Thomas Jefferson and John Adams in 1785: “It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. . . The man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy’s ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once.” See
Those are the words of Jihad used by Muslims to justify their murder and enslavement of Jews and Christians in then Christian Egypt, Syria, and Spain, and of Hindus and Buddhists in India more than 1,000 years ago, and their murder 3,000 Americans in New York in 2001. The Christian New Testament and the Jewish Talmud, and all Christian teaching since the Catholic-Protestant wars of the 1600’s reject the idea that the violent Jewish conquests of Canaan described in the Old Testament in any way justify violence against non-Jews or non-Christians today. But you will not hear Muslim clerics preaching that the calls for violence against Jews and Christians found in their Muslim Koran don’t apply to Muslims today–at least not when they are speaking in Arabic to their own people.
