When Thomas Jefferson saw  there was no negotiating with Muslims,  he formed what is now the  Marines (sea going soldiers).  These Marines  were attached to U. S.

Merchant vessels. When the Muslims  attacked U.S. merchant vessels they were

repulsed by armed soldiers, but there is more.

 The Marines followed the  Muslims back to their villages and  killed every man, 

woman,  and child in the village.

 It didn’t take long for the  Muslims to leave U.S. Merchant vessels alone.

 English and French  merchant vessels started  running up our flag when entering

the Mediterranean to secure safe travel.

 Why the Marine Hymn contains  the verse, “To the Shores of Tripoli”

 This is very interesting and a must  read piece of our history.  It points out where

we may be heading.

 

 Most Americans are unaware of  the fact that over two hundred years  ago the

United States had  declared war on Islam, and Thomas Jefferson led the charge.!

 At the height of the 18th century, Muslim pirates  (the “Barbary Pirates”) were the 

terror of  the Mediterranean and a large area of the North Atlantic.

 They attacked every ship in  sight, and held the crews for exorbitant ransoms. 

Those taken hostage were  subjected to barbaric treatment and  wrote heart-breaking letters home, begging their governments and families to pay whatever their  Mohammedan captors demanded.

 These extortionists of the high seas represented the North African Islamic nations of  Tripoli,  Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers –  collectively referred to as  the Barbary Coast and presented a  dangerous and unprovoked  threat to the new American Republic.

 

 Before the Revolutionary War, U.S. merchant ships had been under  the protection of  Great Britain.   When the U.S. declared its  independence and entered into war, the ships of the United  States were protected by France.

 However, once the war was won, America had to protect its own fleets.

 Thus, the birth of the U.S. Navy.  Beginning in 1784, 17 years before he would  become  president, Thomas  Jefferson became America ‘s Minister to France.   That same year, the U.S. Congress sought to appease its Muslim adversaries by following in the footsteps of European nations who paid bribes to the Barbary States rather than engaging them in war.

 

 In July of 1785, Algerian pirates captured American  ships, and the Dye of Algiers demanded an unheard-of ransom of  $60,000.  It was a plain and simple case of extortion, and Thomas  Jefferson was vehemently opposed to any further  payments. Instead, he proposed to Congress the formation of a coalition of allied nations who together could force the Islamic states into  peace.  A disinterested Congress decided to pay the ransom.

 In 1786, Thomas  Jefferson and John Adams met with Tripoli ‘s ambassador to Great Britain  to ask by what right his nation  attacked American ships and enslaved American citizens, and why Muslims held so much hostility towards America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts.

 

 The two future presidents reported that Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja had answered that Islam “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Quran that all nations who would not acknowledge their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be  found, and to make

slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and  that every Musselman  (Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

 Despite this stunning  admission of premeditated violence on non-Muslim nations, as well as the objections of many notable American  leaders, including George Washington, who warned that caving in was both wrong and would only  further embolden the enemy, for  the following fifteen years the American government paid the Muslims  millions of dollars for the safe passage of American ships or the return of American hostages.

 

 The payments in ransom and tribute amounted to over 20 percent of the United States  government annual revenues in 1800. Jefferson was disgusted.

Shortly after his being sworn in as the third President of the United States in 1801, the  Pasha of Tripoli sent him a note demanding the immediate payment of $225,000 plus  $25,000 a year for every year forthcoming.  That changed everything.

 Jefferson let the Pasha know, in no uncertain terms, what he could do with his demand.    The Pasha responded by  cutting down the flagpole at the  American consulate and declared war on the United States.   Tunis, Morocco , and Algiers immediately followed suit.  Jefferson, until now, had been against America raising a naval force for anything  beyond  coastal defense, but, having watched his nation be cowed by Islamic thuggery for long enough,  decided that it was finally time to meet force with force.

 

 He dispatched a squadron of frigates to the Mediterranean and taught the Muslim nations of the Barbary Coast a lesson he hoped they would never forget.  Congress authorized Jefferson to empower U.S. ships to independent United States had both the will and the right to strike back, they quickly abandoned their allegiance to Tripoli.    The war with Tripoli lasted for four more years, and raged up again in 1815.  

 

The bravery of the U.S. Marine Corps in these wars led to the line “to the shores of Tripoli” in the Marine Hymn, and they would forever  be known as “leathernecks”  for the leather collars of their uniforms, designed to prevent their heads from being cut off by the Muslim scimitars when boarding enemy ships.

 Islam, and what its Barbary followers justified  doing in the name of their prophet and  their god, disturbed Jefferson quite deeply.

 

 America had a tradition of religious tolerance.  In fact Jefferson, himself, had co-authored  the Virginia Statute for  Religious Freedom, but fundamentalist Islam was like no other religion the world had ever seen.  A religion based on  supremacy, whose holy book not  only condoned but mandated violence against unbelievers, was unacceptable to him.    His greatest fear was that someday this brand of Islam would return and pose an even greater threat to the United States.

 This should concern every  American.  That Muslims have brought about women-only  classes and swimming times at taxpayer-funded universities and public pools; that  Christians, Jews, and Hindus have been banned from serving on juries where Muslim defendants are being judged;  Piggy banks and Porky Pig tissue dispensers have been banned from workplaces because they offend Islamist sensibilities; ice cream has been discontinued at certain Burger King locations because the  picture on the wrapper looks  similar to the Arabic script for Allah;  public schools are pulling  pork from their menus; on and on and on and on.

 

 It’s death by a thousand cuts, or inch-by-inch as some refer to it, and most Americans have no idea that this battle is being waged every day across America.  By not fighting back, by allowing groups to obfuscate what  is really happening, and not insisting that the Islamists adapt to our culture, the United States is cutting its own throat with a  politically correct knife, and helping to  further the Islamists’ agenda.
