On This Day In 732, Charles the Hammer Stopped Islam's Advance on the West


Islam conquered most of the Middle East and North Africa and then came across the Straights of Gibraltar and conquered Spain, subjugating the people under Islamic rule, giving the European (mostly Christian and Jewish) people the choice of conversion to Islam or perpetual underling status burdened with a tax on non-Muslims (vital funds Muslims used to finance further conquests).

Islamic armies moved north into what is now France (known as Gaul at the time). That was the high-water mark of Islam's first major invasion of Europe, because it was there they were stopped.

After several large battles, the Islamic hordes were defeated by an army led by Charles Martel, who came to be known as Charles the Hammer. The final and decisive battle occurred on October 11th, 732, one hundred years after the death of Mohammad.

Europe is being invaded again by Islamic hordes. This time they are being welcomed in by people ignorant of history and ignorant of Islamic doctrine.

People who are committed to Islam's political goal of world domination have been swarming into Europe by the millions, gaining more and more political clout and winning more and more battles as Europeans concede their freedoms, their land, and their money to this aggressive and relentless ideology.

But they will be stopped. Europeans are not spineless people. Not even all of Europe's politicians are spineless. Islam was stopped before — despite the fact that many European kings had made deals and allied themselves with the Muslims to gain a temporary political advantage. It was happening then. It is happening now.

But Europe is waking up and so is America, Australia, and India. The more people know about basic Islamic doctrine, the more immune they become to the political manipulations of orthodox Muslims. Concessions made will be revoked. The West will rise again and stop Islam for the third time.

To fortify our commitment to our future victory, today we honor the fighting spirit of Charles the Hammer.

Citizen Warrior,

I'm watching a show on the history channel right now, Called "The Dark Ages" and it, mentions the early Islamic conquests as well as Charles the Hammer, and how he stopped them from annexing Europe. Its talks about how the Moores wanted to conquer Europe and force the population to live under Islamic rule. Interestingly enough, one of the reasons according to the show that Charles defeated the Moores was that they drastically under estimated Frankish forces. To paraphrase the show, "they were convinced that Europe would be an easy conquest because it was controlled by barbarians who consistently fought amongst themselves" Luckily for us, they were wrong.

Hopefully the Jihadists will be proven wrong again, very shortly.

Citizen Warrior,

Speaking of the Dark Ages and Charles the Hammer.

Here's segment from that history channel program that I told you about. Thanks to Avenging Apostate over at the Infidel Bloggers Alliance.

A Lesson In History: The Battle of Tours

I think that you will like it. Charles was both tough and a brilliant tactical commander.
If you want you could probably take one of the images of the actor playing Charles and use it as an aviator. As R Lee Ermey and the U.S Marines Corp would say "U-rah!"

Someone just emailed me this comment:

But we (in India) could not do this and failed miserably, but in spite of failure, we resisted and that too quite bitterly; today India with its Hindu culture and religion, survives and is marching ahead as a vibrant democracy. Some people amongst us did convert and became Muslim; they created an artificial nation named Pakistan for themselves. The whole world knows the reality behind Pakistan. It is a fallout of medieval anti-Indian Arab/Muslim Imperialism and a product of Terrorism. It has given shelter to Osama and is the father of the rogue Taliban. Unless Pakistan changes its policy, character, ideology and basic approach, the world cannot be safe.

The whole AfPak region is the cradle of Old Hindu religion which I love to call "Hindu Islam". The answer to Terrorism born of Arab Islam is Hindu Islam (ie non-Arab Islam of non-Arab Asia).

AfPak should follow Hindu Islam-the ancient indigenous stream which is hidden there underground; they tried their utmost to destroy Hindu religion but could not succeed.

Unfortunately, Iran succumbed and became 100% Muslim. This whole region of non-Arab Asia -- from Iran to Indonesia and Mongolia to Australia, including all Central Asian "stans" and the far-east nations of China/Japan/Korea, is the huge Hindu(ie non-Arab) world. Hindu word stands for non-Arab Asia.

What we need today to counter Terrorism is this ancient stream of Hindu Islam which is no less than Arab Islam in any way, and which is extremely liberal, democratic, tolerant, non-violent, non-supremacist, and moreover, not anti-West at all. It co-exists quite peacefully and amicably with West and the Western civilization. I am calling upon my people and govt. to raise a new body-ONAA, ie Organization of Non-Arab Asia. My country India, is the SOUL of non-Arab Asia. In Asia,non-Arab is Hindu and Hindu is "non-Arab". Hindu word with present connotations is a product of 712 AD Arab invasion over Sindh,a province of India, presently with Pakistan. Indians resisted the Muslim invader and clung to the patriotic banner of Hinduism. Gradually Hindu word which is of Persian origin, became symbol and identity of non-Muslim India. Thanks.

Reading this article has given me hope! I now believe that The West will conquer islamic supremacism. It will be a long and difficult fight, but we will prevail.

Thank you for this article. A piece of history I (and many others) did not know. I think we should have an annual calendar, marking events like this.

I was watching that show too. I have to study Charles "The Hammer" Martel after finding out what a badass he was. Not to mention his son Charlemagne.

We definitely should, that's a great idea man. Let everybody know history is on our side.

Islam is about conquering the world and plunging the world into darkness.....gang raping children and shareer law will allow this to be law

The Byzantium and Bulgarians armies halted the Muslim invasion of Europe 15 years before the Charles the Hammer. They stopped 120 000 Army.

Charles the Hammer stopped only 25 000. His victory is important because he stopped the invasion from the west but the main battle was won 15 years earlier in the east.

If we do it right, it won't be long and hard.

Start at Mecca. Nuke it. Work our way through the Middle East until they give up or better, there are none left.

Folks .. that's funny what u r sayin' ..
While u were watchin the dark ages.. I was watchin Vikings .. did u know that Europe was conquered almost every 2 yrs by its own ppl .. French vs. English , Germans vs. Romans & so on .. & Areas of Islamic rule were the only safe places in Europe then ..
& those who talk abt orthodox Muslim know nothing abt mass excutions btn Christian sects themselves ...
No. Two .. did u know that the deadliest world wars were originated from Europe .. & enslaving of Africans & Latin America were also conducted by European campaigns .. the Indian guy talkin' obviously isn't a true Indian 'coz his ppl were amongst the most suffering from British colonialism .. most the royal jewellery those fabricatin' monarch crown today r actually Indians .. India was brutally enslaved & brought into famines & systematic poverty by colonialism after it was one of the richest ' Muslim' countries in the world ...
In summary .. Europe's history is truely not good since the Romans .. dark ages.. crusades .. colonialism .. racism.. industrial revolution .. reforms .. just go read abt inquisitions .. While the Islamic Andalusia was constructing the best global libararies & having the finest scientists & innovators .. Europe was busy hunting for witches & those who think earth is round shaped !
even Marxism came from Europe for God sake...!!
Am not talking religion but be sure Islam would be the best option for declining western civilization .. the U.S. can't help 'coz it has its own deep problems as well.. talking war langauge isn't the best option 'coz I don't think today's Europe can confront any real Islamic power..!

Of course you would think that, you've been brainwashed since birth about the history of islam instead of taught the truth.

Unknown 11:12 AM  

Can u tell me which islamic country has invented even a needle.
Yes, it's correct it was brutally enslaved & looted by british.
But before them it was muslims who invaded the peace loving people of India who believed in peace & brotherhood. Muslims destroyed the culture but even then we survived. And moreover it was not muslims who were flourishing while Europe were hunters(as per ur philosophy). It was Hindus who were flourishing with their innovation and colourful culture with faith in God.
Muslims were only robbers, rapists & invaders on other non- islamic country. Even in quran many ideology (90%) have been stolen from hindu holy books.
U say muslims were flourishing. If u go through ur wealth u will find 100% of wealth were looted from either hindus or christians or Jews. Don't fool us anymore in the name of Marxism any more. We r uniting and will unite.
The day we unite, the death of Islam's countdown will start and will continue till the last pig.

Islam advance against Christianity and the West had not really stopped. It had just taken different forms As the subtle and sly stealth jihad or the blatantly violent and deadly militant jihad. As for Islam's jihad against Christian and Christianity. This may be explained,in part,in the following essay.
There are many Muslims who strongly dislike Christians. Some Muslims even hate Christians so much that they even become violence against them and burn their Bibles. One reason for this is that in the mosques and madrasas the Muslim clerics, as the imams who speak many awful and unproven terrible things against Christians and Christian doctrine. So much so the many Muslims get all worked up against Christians and Christian teachings and some those Muslims commit violent actions against Christians. Such false religious teachers, as those Muslim clerics, who speak to people unfounded and invalid evil things about Christians and Christian doctrines have been described in the Bible. For the Bible informs the reader in Second Peter 2:12. “They speak evil of things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption.” [N.K.J.V.]
It also should be make clear that in this specific above Bible verse, as well as in John 3:16. The word “Perish” does not mean loss of being but loss of well-being. As in going to ruin by ending up in languishing in torment in a terrible place of suffering that the Bible calls hell. Luke 16:19-31.

An Islam voice is and will always utter words that deceive and lie. They have twisted the facts of ancient texts, scriptures,and many other historical and scientific writings. They even tell one lie over another lie to cover the multiple lies and contradictions in the Koran. Muhammad was certainly a real winner: the biggest liar the world has ever known, except Satan. I cannot distinguish the two apart. The False Prophet and the beasts have so may demonic attributes, it is difficult.

The writer of Islam voice took selected parts of centuries old European history out of context to vilify Europeans and Americans. However, the Islam Voice totally ignores the murderous route Islam has taken its people for 1400 years and the world it has enslaved. A Muslim to even accuse another of slavery while they globally mastered the slave trade from 600 A. D. to the present. Even today they continue to kidnap, rape, enslave, steal, murder, and oppress.

The "Islam voice" is just another product of Muhammad's lunacy. Look real close Little Islam voice of Muhammad you could see a moon god too and Satan could talk to you in a cave too.

I would rather die instantly than live one second under any Islamic Nation. "Get me away from Muslims or give me death"

Christians must stand against Islam. There are millions of church members sitting in their churches doing absolutely nothing. Their church leaders are not doing any thing either. Entire denominations are not doing anything. They are not contributing financial aid to fight Islam, not even helping martyrs and those being persecuted. They are so politically correct that they will standby and allow hundreds and thousands of Islamic immigrants enter this country without objection...or vetting. Most are not even instructing their congregation on the evils of Islam. They are not even voicing a public or private opinion. Most stand mute. Most appear to be moral cowards and they may well be.

I ask you, where have all the Christians gone? Will they flee the cross again and hid again. Will they betray and deny him again? Will they pick up their cross and follow Jesus as was asked of them? What do you say, Christians?

So because Europeans have been stupid and ruthless at times your saying terrible muslim laws are the answer is nothing short of the insanity that prevails within Islam today.Wake up and realise humanity is itself a failing thing that doesn't exist permanently and islam is an old barbaric religion that has no place along with old barbaric catholicism and numerous other aggressive controlling religions.The ONLY thing that can prolong human beings existence is free thinking peaceful beings and that won't happen exactly because of the existence of terrible religions and the power they hold over the hoards.

Jac 4:19 AM  

Err...yes, very nice. Especially the bit about 'having the finest scientists and innovators'. I'm sure Galileo (Italian), Michelangelo (Italian), Paracelsus (Swiss German), Tycho Brahe (Danish), Newton (English), Faraday (English), and Tesla (Serbian-American) amongst numerous others would be pleased to know their collective efforts were second rate. And since when, pray enlighten us, is Islam not considered a religion?

Europe will not walk out of this unscathed and unscarred. You will lose a large chunk of your humanity and the precious secular humanist religion held for the past 70 years in eradicating this scourge

Tangata 12:57 PM  

Fancy you try to teach others about history when Islamic history has no credibility but merely represent a whitewash to sanitise or justify the utter brutality of your ideology and it's founder. Go back to the hole you crawled from under... If not for the western values, held by their commitment to principles, the Islamic world would have been decimated... And perhaps it will be when their principles are finally exhausted by the brutality of the resurgent caliphate and God help us all when that happens, the massacre and the subjugation would be catastrophic... Just remember Afghanistan..

Today is Halloween. It’s the specific day of the year when some people might think of the non-entity of folklore which is the vampire. This fiction of myth is about a demonically raised blood drinking animated corpse. This monster is dangerous and deadly. Of course, such a creature doesn’t t exist.
By contrast what or to be more accurate who really does exit is a totally different kind of monster who is the violent jihad-minded Muslim who in not a creature of folklore but a real person who might be demonically inspired person who because of his or her firm but blind and unquestioning faith in the false religion of Islam with its false doctrine a the Koranic based violent jihad of violence and killing for the advancement of Islam .As the Koran instructs in, for example in Sura 2:191. 5:33. 9:5, 111,123. 47:4. A person such as this is a real live “monster” who is definitely dangerous and deadly.
So we need not fear monsters of folklore as vampires. Nevertheless, we should not fear but be on guard and have vigilance regarding the fiendish and scheming jihadists with their insidious and heinous violent and murderous militant jihadists in their deluded and irrational Islamic quest against Christianity, Judaism and Western civilization .

One of the most unusual articles on CitizenWarrior.com is Pleasantville and Islamic Supremacism.

It illustrates the Islamic Supremacist vision by showing the similarity between what happened in the movie, Pleasantville, and what devout fundamentalist Muslims are trying to create in Islamic states like Syria, Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia (and ultimately everywhere in the world).
