JIHAD: From MECCA to WW2
How did the world get from just Mohammad to well over 1 billion Muslims in the world? This is the question every Westerner should have to answer. These videos and additional references will help you do that.
I found these videos on youtube and posted them awhile back. You can find them and many other very important post on this blog in the Non-Revisionist History catagory. The videos are from the Documentary “Farewell Israel: Bush, Iran and the Revolt of Islam” and I feel they are the best presentation of the history of Islam I have seen yet. The videos are not posted in any specific sequence at the youtube channel that uploaded them. I feel these videos are so important that I downloaded them, put them in their proper order, renamed them and uploaded them to this blogs YouTube Channel. I also have them backed up and will be self hosting the videos soon. THEY ARE THAT IMPORTANT.
Here is a Review of the documentary from Amazon.
“By a wide margin, the best video documentary about political Islam.
It contains the most historically accurate depiction of the legal and political side of Islam that I have seen in video form. By not employing taqiyya as Muslims want to do when talking with Westerners, it carefully shows Islamic thinking with respect to Jews, Christians and other infidels. It shows the special tradeoffs of dihimmi status and the peace that is available under Dar al-Islam.
Gilbert does a remarkable job of selecting pieces of Islam’s historical record to give the viewer an excellent appreciation for the thinking of Muslims about their relationship to god and their earthly duties and opportunities.
He generally presents accurate information and lets the viewer form his own opinion and recommended course of action. One possible exception is the authors implication that if Israel had not been formed, and had Bush not invaded the Middle East in retaliation for 9/11, the coming war could have been avoided.
This film does an excellent job of showing how the enemy thinks (and it’s not just the few folks who are fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq).
I was blown away by the quality and quantity of information about political Islam contained in this 2.5 hour video. Joel Gilbert has produced by far the best video documentary on the topic of Jihad and Islam I have ever seen. It is probably about too serious and sensitive a topic to receive a well deserved award for the best documentary of 2007. I would not trade it for a half dozen of the books on fundamentalist Islam that I have read.
Every American and everyone else in Dar al Harb needs to see this film to appreciate the seriousness and duration of the battles we are now fighting.”
These videos are less than 1 1/2 hrs of the 2 1/2 hrs of the full video, and I have intentionally left out two videos that are posted on the Youtube channel that first uploaded them because I do not agree with the documentaries main thesis that Israel will soon be annihilated in a coming war. As a result the last video ends kinda leaving you hanging. I for sure believe a war is coming but I think Israel will prevail and will win the war that will result in expanded territory and a safety buffer zone to the present Nation of Israel. Some of the posting here in the next couple of weeks will explore this possibility and will show what many in the study of end times are saying about this issue.
Here is the editorial review of Farewell Israel: Bush, Iran and the Revolt of Islam from the Amazon page.
The confrontation between Islam and the Jews began in the Prophet Muhammads time and continues to this day. Farewell Israel: Bush, Iran and The Revolt of Islam is an historic journey, from the birth of Islam, through its 1,200 year reign over the civilized world, to the last 300 years of Islamic decline, overtaken and dominated by the West – then humiliated by a Jewish state. Islams historic trials with Jews, and its relationship with conquered non-believers, help illustrate the Islamic world view – all through the eyes of Muslims.
In this groundbreaking film, the total rejection of Israel by Muslim states since its inception in 1948 comes to light as a religious duty for Believers. The Islamic roots of Anwar Sadats 1977 Camp David Accords with Israel are exposed as The Diplomatic Strategy Against Israel by which Egypt sought to defeat Israel through diplomacy, rather than establish Western Peace. Israels misunderstanding of Islamic goals and values are highlighted by its enthusiasm for Yasser Arafat and the 1993 Oslo Accords. Next, President George Bushs tragic misunderstanding of 9/11 as a War Against Freedom, in which the United States played into the hands of Al-Qaeda and the Islamist cause by advocating democratic reform across the Middle East, is revealed. Finally, the Iranian strategic agenda for acquiring weapons of mass destruction to eliminate Israel comes clearly into focus.
Today, at the direction of Iran, Islamists are preparing for a fateful coming war for Islam – and Israel is the number one target and obstacle in the path of Islamic revival. Only with the return of Jews to their historic status as Dhimmi or Tributaries, tolerated and protected within Islamic society, can Islamic revival succeed – resulting in Islamic Peace, in the Middle East. Farewell Israel: Bush, Iran and The Revolt of Islam reaches the unavoidable conclusion that Western and Israeli misunderstanding of Islam is leading to a coming war – which will have devastating consequences for the West, and worst of all for Israel – Farewell Israel!
While I feel this is the best video representation of the history of Islam I have seen yet, there are a few things that need correcting and highlighting, I will try to do that as we go along. I believe that if you watch these videos and this other very important video series, you will have a good grasp on the history of Islam. And if you absorb all the info in the links provided, you will be able to give a great 10 minutes summary of how this world got to where it is.
Here are two articles to put the broad context of Jihad into perspective.
Mahomet established a religion by putting his enemies to death; Jesus Christ by commanding his followers to lay down their lives. Blaise Pascal

This first video claims that Mohammad was “confused” when he first started receiving his revelations. the fact is the he thought he was demon possessed.
This next video shows that Islam’s neighboring civilizations where the Byzantine and the Persian empires. It should be noted that one reason the Muslims where successful in totally defeating the Persians and eventually successful in defeating the Byzantines (the eastern leg of the Roman Empire) was that the Byzantine and the Persian empires where in a weakened state from fighting each other when Islam exploded onto the scene.
The story of the Persian empire, in my opinion, is one of the strongest evidences that Islam is not a religion of peace and is bent on making all religion the religion of Allah. Persia is modern day Iran and how it became Muslim is very important because it shows the almost total annihilation of the religion Zoroastrianism at the hands of Islam. Zoroastrianism was the official religion of 3 successive Persian Empires and was one of the worlds largest religions when Islam was born but there are now less than 200,000 Zoroastrians in the world and less than 0.1 % of the Iranian population is Zoroastrian. In effect, the subjugation of Zoroastrianism by Islam has almost resulted in its extinction. Today Iranians barely remember that they where once Persian and Zoroastrian. AND THIS IS THE RELIGION OF NO RELIGIOUS COMPULSION?
For more info about Zoroastrianism and Islam see the first video in this other very important video series, this Wikipedia page called the Persecution of Zoroastrians and The History of Jihad Against Persia.
To fill in an important gap in this next video, before Muhammad invaded Mecca he had been raiding Meccan Merchant Caravans. There was some important battles that happened before Muhammad invaded mecca. This video also mentions the apostasy, it should be noted that at this time Caliph Abu Bahker standardized his version of the Koran and burned all the opposing text, so do Muslims really have the words of Muhammad?
This video may also prompt you to learn more about Jizya and Dhimmitude because it falsely claims that the treatment of Non-Muslims by Muslims was “oppressive by modern standards but tolerant by medieval standards”. BUT THIS IS NOT TRUE. Non-Muslims where not allowed to even maintain there places of worship, to openly practice their religion, or teach it to their children. Overall the system of subjugation almost ensures the subjugated religions will nearly vanish as did the Zoroastrians. No other religion has a systematized program of subjugation written into a legal code, instead all other religions have at least some form of the golden rule and are truly pluralistic.
See our Dhimmitude catagory for more information.
THIS VIDEO SHOWS IT REALLY IS THEM AGAINST US (Everyone else).
The War between Christianity and Islam. There is just so much that could be said about this that is not said in the video that I suggest you read some of the articles and view some of the videos from the Christianity peace/conquest category about the Crusades and learn the real reason and purpose of the crusades. If I’ve learned anything studying Islam it is that PEOPLE NEED TO STOP APOLOGIZING FOR THE CRUSADES. The whole ordeal infuriates me so I will just say “LEARN ABOUT ISLAM or learn to say “Allāhu Akbar” (Allah is [the] Greatest)”. There is no other option.
BE PROUD OF OUR WESTERN CIVILIZATION for a change, damn-it – or go learn Arabic. If it where not for the crusaders, we would all be Muslim, subjugated or put to death by now!!! I, for one, THANK GOD for the Christians who said….
……..OR TWO, OR THREE, OR HOWEVER MANY IT TAKES.
ThIS video states that when the crusaders arrived in the foreign lands they where “amazed to find an Islam society that was vastly superior to European culture”. Some clarification is in need here. The Muslims push the idea of the conquered Spanish civilization as being an advanced society. But reality is that it was not advanced because of Islam but in-spite of Islam. Like the conquered Istanbul (Byzantine Constantinople), Spain was the product of the Dhimmi, not Muslims. The Christian societies where already far advanced compared to Arabian culture from which Islam came. Islam conquering these lands always resulted in a cannibalizing of the conquered cultures and additional advancements come from the Dhimmis, not the Muslims. And once the Dhimmis are subjugated to insignificance and the numbers are greatly reduced the result is a backslide of the culture to the 7th century Arabian culture from which islam came, which has not really contributed anything significant to modern society, even though Muslims may say otherwise. LOOK INTO IT.
For more info on the Conquest of India see the last two videos in this other very important video series
These two videos do a good job on the decline of Islam. But one point that is not covered is the genocide of the Assyrians. Another important point is not covered is the Young Turk Revolution and the over throw of the Caliphate.
This video touches on the alliance of Islam and Hitler in WW2. See our Islam and Nazis category for more information on that.
This video carries on and shows how WW2 got started but it does leave you hanging. For those who want to see the two more videos in this series, I will post them in another post soon. And come on back and I’ll be posting on why I think the main thesis of “Farewell to Israel”, that Israel will soon vanish in a war, is wrong.
I will be adding more information and links to this post, so please bookmark it and come back.
