*Our lesson begins right after the death of Muhammad:
"The Caliphs continued the efforts for the spread of Islam which Mohammed had initiated. Soon after 650, Armenia was taken, and the victorious armies of Islam pushed on to Turkestan and India. In Asia Minor the armies of the Greek emperor successfully resisted the invaders. Blocked in their advance on Europe from the east, the Saracens sought to gain entrance from the south. [But now Europe has opened up its eastern front by allowing mass immigration of millions of Muslims through Asia minor.] From Egypt they extended their conquests along the north coast of Africa. Marmarica, Cyrenacia, Carthage, Numidia, and Mauretania were overrun, and in 700 the last Christian stronghold, Ceuta, on the Strait of Gibraltar, fell. From here a mixed horde of Arabs and Moors crossed over into Spain, and in the memorable battle of Jeres de la Fontera (711) put an end to the Gothic kingdom which had endured for three centuries. The remnants of the Goths fled into the fastnesses of the Asturias, from which the Saracens strove in vain to dislodge them.

"The losses suffered by the Church through the Mohammedan conquests were great and far-reaching in their results. Countries which had belonged to her for centuries, in fact the oldest centers of Christianity - Jerusalem, Antioch, Alexandria, Carthage - were torn away from her, and the way to their reconquest barred, as it seemed, for all time.
"As a rule the political subjugation of a nation meant its Islamization. The conquered nations were not indeed, as is popularly believed, given their choice between the Koran and the sword, but their conquerors ruled them with such an iron hand and levied such high taxes upon them that multitudes in every land sought a remedy for their ills by professing the faith which secured for them equality [except for women] with their oppressors. The apostasy was, however, by no means universal. In the face of the direst persecution millions of Christians held fast to their faith with heroic loyalty.
"The rapid expansion of Islam was due in great measure to its appeal to the uncivilized, the poor and the ignorant. It requires blind faith, presents no difficult problems to the intellect, and satisfies the natural religious instincts without forbidding the gratification of the baser passions. For the pagans of Arabia and Africa Islam proved a boon, for it 'corrected many abuses, admitted every class to its ranks, enforced religious equality, and preached truths of Monotheism, Revelation, and Eternal Life.'

The "Make America Great with Love, Compassion and Mercy" campaign of Islam wants American to know that Muslim Americans "work hard to help their communities" and are "active in the political process" of our nation. Reading between the lines, that means Sharia law for America. Scroll down in THIS ARTICLE to see the 31 planned billboards. Twenty-five of the 31 billboards are in Florida. Lucky me.
