Imagine a World Without Islam

I am taking a graduate class in Byzantine History.  I hate that class.  It is so depressing.  My teacher and my fellow students are wonderful.  The subject matter is like watching drowning kittens.  Here is midterm.  I just hope I pass that class.

Starting with the Visigoths in the late 4th century A.D., we have read about various groups of ‘barbarians’ that had greater and lesser effects on the eastern or Byzantine Empire up to the 9th century. So far, which group do you think has had the greatest impact on the Empire and why?

The answer is obvious.  The most important barbarian group that had the greatest impact on the Empire is the one that has the greatest impact on our Empire today - Islam and its adherents.  Today, we have very few instances of non-Islamic Arabs or Persians, Goths, Franks, Bulgars or Slavs trying to commit mass murder against the Big or the Little Satan or its allies (the United States and Israel respectively).  

What the world would look like if Constantine lived during the Mohammedan ecstasy.  Would the world continue to regard the Arabian Peninsula as a "Felix Arabia" - a happy backwater rather than the home of a billion man suicide cult?  What would the world look like if the Byzantines had acted like true Romans and wiped Islam off the map and plowed salt into Mecca and Medina?  What would the world look like if the child-molesting prophet had been strangled in his crib?  

The Byzantine Empire stands guilty of the vilest crimes of heresies and treachery.  They accommodated the ugly threat to humanity that is Islam so they can stab their kinsmen in the back over the new novel heresy of the time - Aryanism, Monophysitism or the trouble with Icons.  The Muslim is at the gate and these Greeks want to melt a portrait of Jesus, really?

History is replete with examples of how Latin rite Christianity would have reacted to the evil of Mohammedanism.  Just take a walk down Tours, France, Google the year 1492 in Spanish history or recall these words uttered "Veni, Vidi, Dei Vici."  History herself disabused the notion that the Byzantines provided a buffer state between the Infidels and us - instead the Byzantines were a human shield.  

The Emperor Alexios I Komnenos tried to reverse near four centuries of tail tucking and skin saving.  But his labors wielded half-hearted success because the laborer in the person of Alexios I Komnenos was at best a half-hearted man.  To actually compare the Scythians, Visigoths, Ostrogoths, Vandals, Franks, Mongols, Huns or even the Zulus to the Satanic insanity that is Islam is really insulting ancient Barbarians.  The Islamic civil war that gave birth to the Shiite and Sunni death cults gave the Byzantines evidence that Islam would not survive had they provided a unified front of self-preservation.  Instead, Leo III the Isaurian started wars against his own people for reasons only he can justify - so much for unity.

In conclusion, we still live along Islam's bloody borders because the Byzantine legacy.  Not only would our world be different, think if alongside the pedophiles and communists, how depopulated the infernal regions would be.  Like I said, the answer is obvious.

Where in the hell do you come up with this shit? You think you are representing the United States Army by posting this type of stuff? You really need to take a good look at yourself and change your life.

well my friend, i want to know why you think Islam is bad.
I actually read about it and believe me what I read wasn't bad at all.
Add to that, you can't judge a religion by judging a group of people, take "David Kuresh" for example He doesn't describe Christianity, Does he?

Islam is a false religion.
Sorry if you cannot handle that.

What is a real religion? I am always amazed at two things about humanity; the first is intolerance for others' beliefs. Does it really bug you if the guy down the street believes in a different version of your fairy tale? If it does, move to a different country, we already have enough bigots here.

Second, with all the knowledge we have to contradict religion can we not just look at each religion as a moral support system and not fact.

Joe, atheism is a system of beliefs. It is nihilistic and it requires a religious faith to adhere to atheism. Good luck with that and God Bless You!

You are so ignorant James. You say that you are a follower of the Catholic Church, yet you make it a life goal to dispel the other religions of this world. Where in the Bible does it say to do that? I'd like to see a direct verse quote, otherwise you're full of shit.

The Bible does tell us to love your neighbor as yourself and to love your enemy. Just because a person believes in another faith doesn't give you right to insult and show them hatred.

If you truly believe in Jesus Christ and the Catholic church, then you should take some time and contemplate your words.

Have a blessed day!

"You say that you are a follower of the Catholic Church, yet you make it a life goal to dispel the other religions of this world. Where in the Bible does it say to do that?"

In the book of genesis, the story of Moses. The first of the 10 commandments "Thou shalt have no other God before me" and if I remember rightly the penalty for violating this is to be stoned to death as a heretic. People also have to be stoned to death for collecting sticks on a Sunday. It's not me who thinks this, The Bible says that it's God's will so it must be right.

It's actually these modern day, wishy-washy, tolerant and liberal minded Catholics who aren't following The Bible properly.
