Westerners are not only known as history ignoramuses, but double dumbass history ignoramuses when it comes to modern jihad history. Since I'm the one-and-only Historyscoper (tm), let me quickly bring you up to speed before you dive into my Master Historyscope.
This historyscope will concentrate on Islamist (jihadist) terrorist attacks outside the Muslim World, where the intended victims are mainly non-Muslims, excluding the endless jihad on the Jewish state of Israel. One country that has been particularly hard hit is France. Too bad, there are so many that we can only cover the most publicized cases, sorry.
On June 8, 632 Islam's founder Muhammad (b. 570) died in Medina, Arabia, after which his followers, led by his successors (caliphs) launched Muhammad's Great Jihad on the non-Muslim world, which resulted in one-quarter of the human race being taken over. Only with the Sept. 12, 1683 Battle of Vienna was the Great Jihad's existential military threat to the West ended, after which the Muslim World AKA the Ottoman Empire was systematically weakened by the West's skyrocketing progress in Science and Technology, causing it to become known as the Sick Man of Europe until it finally became kaput in WWI, after which the caliphate was officially abolished on Mar. 3, 1924 by Kemal Ataturk, who promised the West that the Great Jihad was over and the Muslim World would reenter the human race.
Old Time Islam was kaput, right? Wrong. Parents kept handing the Quran to their children, and Allah's orders are set in concrete and can't be countermanded by any human authority, so it was just a matter of time before attempts began to revive the caliphate, this time with the West's WMDs. At the same time the West began losing its Christian-Jewish faith and going atheist, not stiffening it up but softening it up for jihadists, who were often helped by Marxists on the theory that they will weaken the Judaeo-Christian civilization they hate so much while they act as traitors in the ranks until everything burns down and they take over what's left and create a Communist Utopia, which is just as big a sick pipe dream as the fabled unicorn, pure evil, the tragic end of 2,000 years of European civilization. Meanwhile the so-called secularized Muslims of Turkey began persecuting Christians, causing the pop. to dwindle from 2M in 1920 to mere thousands in modern times, while other Muslim countries do ditto, causing Christians in Syria to dwindle from about one-third in 1900 to 10% in modern times, the Christians in Lebanon to dwindle from 55% in 1950 to under 30% in modern times, and in 2003-7 half of the 1M Christians in Iraq to flee; clearly if they won't accept Dhimmi status, they better get out so the ethnically-cleansed remainder can get well and relaunch Muhammad's Great Jihad. Sadly, despite truth tellers like moi using the Internet to spread the message that Islam is an existential threat to everything the West cherishes, the self-hating leftist Marxist overlords of Europe and their lackeys in the U.S. still have the high ground, controlling the govt. and the mainstream PC media, stifling all attempts to teach and organize a coherent unified opposition to the new jihad along the lines of my Winslow Plan for Defeating Islam Forever. The election of Pres. Trump and the incredible war declared on him by the leftist Deep State mainly because he wants to stop Muslims from flooding in and weakening the fabric of the nation while they welcome it should be a wakeup call to my readers that I'm not just some closet kook whistling Dixie. Too bad,, Trump has never tweeted a free plug for my Web site, and there is no evidence he even knows about it, let's hope he doesn't leave the White House without discovering my message in a bottle and helping the millions learn about my Winslow Plan.
Let's get to scoping the modern-day reawakening of Muslim's Great Jihad.
In the 1920s Urdu-speaking Mawlana Muhammad Ilyas (1885-1944) founded the Tablighi Jamaat ("proselytizing group") in Delhi, India to combat "distortions" of Islam caused by Hinduism, and it eventually expanded into a global army of identically-dressed bearded Muslim missionaries who teach emulation of the weird habits of Prophet Muhammad, such as sleeping on the side and never on the stomach, entering a bathroom leading with the left foot, putting on pants leading with the right foot, eating with index, middle finger and thumb and never a fork, wearing pants or robes halfway between the knee and ankle, and letting the beard grow while shaving the upper lip; terrorists such as Zacarias Moussaoui and Djamel Beghal eventually come out of it; each Nov. it holds the yearly 3-day Tablighi Jamaat Gathering in Raiwind, Lahore, Pakistan, which becomes #2 to the Hajj in drawing Muslims, drawing an attendance of 1M by the end of the cent.
In Mar. 1928 after getting pissed-off at "the wave of atheism and lewdness engulfing Egypt" after WWI, and how the infidel Euros had "imported their half-naked women into these regions, together with their liquor, theaters and dance halls and amusements, stories and newspapers and novels, whims and silly games, along with their vices", Egyptian schoolteacher Hassan al-Banna (1906-49) and six Suez Canal Co. workers founded the first modern er, Sunni fundamentalist movement, the Muslim Brotherhood (al-Ikhwan a-Muslimun), launching the Islamic radicalism movement that is so much fun today, using innocuous-looking charity fronts to raise money for terrorism even in the U.S. starting in the 1960s, and setting up the Muslim Student Assoc. at the U. of Illinois in 1963, bringing radical (political domination) Islam (sometimes called Islamism, as if it's a perversion of "real" Islam, when we know it's actually the true Islam) to the U.S. The HQ was moved from Ismailia to Cairo in 1932, becoming openly anti-British and anti-Zionist, then going violent by the 1940s, his eyes were huge, did you see the smile? After he died, Egyptian poet Sayyid Qutb (1906-66) became its leader, preaching against the infidel U.S. and its "animalistic desires" and "awful sins", with the soundbyte "A Muslim has no nationality except his belief", and promoting jihad in "self-defense" until the Nasser govt. executed him for the 1964 pub. of Milestones (Ma'alim fi-l-Tariq), calling for a revolution in Islamic countries to go back to Sharia, which became a bible for throwback radical Muslim terrorists incl. al-Qaida; Hassan al-Banna told it like it with the soundbyte about the true meaning of Jihad: “By jihad, I mean that imperative duty until the day of Resurrection which is reflected in the following saying of the Messenger of Allah - praise and benediction of Allah upon Him: 'Whoever dies without carrying out a military expedition, or wishing to do so, dies a pre-Islamic death.' Its lowest degree is the heart’s abhorrence of evil, and its highest degree is fighting in the path of Allah. Between these two degrees are other forms of jihad: jihad with the tongue, pen, hand, and speaking a word of truth to the unjust authority. The call can survive only with jihad. The more lofty and far-reaching is the call, the greater is the jihad in its path. The price required to support it is immense, but the reward given to its upholders is more generous: ‘And strive in the Way of Allah as you ought to.’ By this you know the meaning of your slogan ‘Jihad is our path’.” In July 1965 Nasser imprisoned him along with his younger brother Muhammad Qutb (1919-), who wasn't executed, and fled to be with fellow members of the Muslim Brotherhood in Saudi Arabia in 1972, where he was hired as a tutor by Osama bin Laden's rich father and spread his brother's radicalism while publishing his own bestsellers incl. Islam: The Misunderstood Religion, with soundbytes like "Islam is not a mere creed, but a complete system of economics, with civil, criminal and international legal codes", "The Western masters are perverted, savage, avaricious, barbarous, monstrous, hideous", etc., and "After 9/11, do they hate us for what we do, or for what we are? The answer is for both." 20th cent. Arab Muslims were not a solid block, splitting between sell-out liberal Westernizers, Marxists, nationalists, and pan-Islamists, until the creation of Israel threw a reactionary Islamizing force back into them, which increased in intensity after the fall of the Soviet Union and which is still being worked out. Muslim Brotherhood penetration into the U.S. now incl. several front orgs. Meanwhile in 1953 Islamic Sunni scholar Taqiuddin al-Nabhani (1909-77) founded the Hizb ut-Tahrir (Party of Liberation) in Jerusalem, with the goal of uniting all Muslim countries under a new caliphate, spreading to 40+ countries with 1 million members, many in the U.K. In Jan. 2010 well-named Muhammad Badie (1943-) became the head of the Muslim Brotherhood, continuing its 7th cent. Muhammad Baddy jihadist mindset into the new decade. In Apr. 2010 Egyptian Sunni preacher Yusuf (Youssef) al-Qaradawi (1926-), who turned down offers to be head of the global Muslim Brotherhood called for Mecca to replace Greenwich as the center for world time. On Jan. 20, 2010 U.S. state secy. Hillary Rodham Clinton (1947-) suddenly decided to drop the ban from the U.S. of al-Banna's Swiss-educated grandson Tariq Ramadan (1962-) because "the U.S. government is pursuing a new relationship with Muslim communities based on mutual interest and mutual respect" (State Dept. spokesman Darby Holladay), and Tariq has been claiming that there is a new "Western Islam" that he and others have developed that isn't a cancer on the West, although we know it is, was it an innocent mistake or something else, you don't put a big girl in a big dress. Besides a ton of bad news about him, I guess she forgot that Tariq's daddy Said Ramadan (1926-95), who like Osama bin Laden was supported by the CIA as long as they were fighting the Soviets, wrote a secret document called The Project in 1982, outlining a plan for subverting the West and installing Islamic regimes, which was discovered by Swiss intelligence in 2001, and chances are you guessed it, the one movie I didn't see.
On Apr. 15, 1966 Egyptian pres. Gamal Abdel Nasser announces that a conspiracy against him by Islamic fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood leader Sayyid Qutb (b. 1906) has been exposed based in his 1964 book Milestones (Ma'alim fi-l-Tariq), which calls for a rev. in Islamic countries to restore Sharia; on Aug. 29 he and two companions are executed; his writings, filled with anti-U.S. jihadist rhetoric later help spawn al-Qaida.
On Apr. 14, 1972 10 members of a Muslim mosque in New York City phone in a false alarm then ambush the responders, killing one and injuring three, becoming the first modern Muslim terrorist attack in the U.S.
Why TLW hates minarets, part 6,666? On Sept. 5, 1972 (Sun.) (4:31 a.m.) just when the spirit of friendly internat. competition at the "Serene Olympics" in Munich, West Germany is going strong, eight lowdown raghead Muslim Palestinian terrorists working for the Black September terrorist org. of Venezuelan mastermind Carlos the Jackal (Ilyich Ramirez Sanchez) (1949-) (born after King Hussein II of Jordan ordered a massacre of Palestinians in Sept. 1970) crash the Olympic Village, then capture and murder 11 Jewish Israeli athletes and coaches during a 23-hour standoff (two in their 1st floor apts., the rest at the airport), becoming known as the Munich Massacre; Munich police chief Manfred Schreiber offers German-speaking leader Issa (Luttif Afif) (1937-72) (his nickname Issa is the Muslim name for Jesus, because his mother was Jewish?) unlimited money to release the hostages, and he utters the immortal Jesus-be-praised soundbyte "This is is not about money - talk of money is demeaning"; five terrorists become shahada (Muslim martyrs), and one policeman is killed during a failed hostage rescue attempt (shahada good day killing Jews, so now I'm ready for Allah to take me home?); on Sept. 6 the Olympic Games gloomily resume, ending on Sept. 11 (9-11); Pres. Nixon forms the Cabinet Committee to Combat Terrorism to protect the U.S. from terrorist attacks; Israel sends a secret unit of five ex-Mossad agents called Caesarea to hunt down all of Black September's members (and anybody else they fear?) in a 20-year "shadow war on terror", although mission cmdr. Abu Daoud (Mohammed Daoud Mohammed Odeh or Auda) (1937-) and Arafat's deputy (Black September founder and architect of the mission) Abu Iyad (Saleh Khalaf) (1933-91) are beyond reach; on June 8, 1992 they gun down PLO liaison officer Atef Bseiso (b. 1948) in the street - nobody ever forgives anybody in the religion-rich Middle East?
On Mar. 9, 1977 the Hanafi Muslim Siege begins when 12 Black Muslim extremists of the Hanafi Movement (splinter group of the Nation of Islam), incl. founder (1968) Khalifa Hamaas Abdul Khaalis (Ernest 2X McGee) (-2003) (former jazz drumer born in Gary Ind. as Ernest Timothy McGhee) invaded the city hall, B'nai B'rith HQ, and Islamic Center in Washington, D.C. in protest of the airing of the 1976 Moustapha Akkad film Mohammed, Messenger of God, which they mistakenly believed broke the taboo about showing their prince of darkness prophet on film, taking 149 hostages, killing radio reporter Maurice Williams and police officer Mack Cantrell, wounding future mayor Marion Barry, and holding the hostages for two days Allah Akbaring like cowboys on beans, also demanding that a group of men convicting of killing their relatives be handed over so they can execute them; on Mar. 11 the siege ends after ambassadors from three Islamic nations join the negotiations, and they are convicted on July 23, and given 21-120 year sentences - the religion of peace, right?
In Jan. 1979 Shuaib Abdul Raheem (Gary Earl Robinson) (1950-) and three other members of the Muslim separatist Dar ul-Islam Mosque in Brooklyn, N.Y. take over a John & Al's Sporting Goods store in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to steal firearms for a "war on injustices against Muslims" (jihad), taking hostages and killing NYPD officer Stephen Gilroy, whose body remains on location for the duration of the 2-day siege; on June 4, 2010 during Obama Time Raheem is granted parole, outraging the public.
On July 27, 1980 after watching a CBS-TV special with Dan Rather in a stripper-filled hot tub at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, and hearing that Soviet troops have been booby-trapping children's toys with explosives in Afghanistan (and worrying about the Soviet Union gaining access to the Persian Gulf), well-positioned Trinity, Tex.-born U.S. rep. (D-Tex.) (1973-97) Charles Nesbitt "Charlie" Wilson (1933-2010), member of the House Appropriations Committee (a womanizing boozer AKA Good Time Charlie, whose all-female staff is called Charlie's Angels) gets religion, visits refugee camps in Pakistan in fall 1982, survives a federal investigation into cocaine drug use in summer 1983, and with the help of Houston, Tex. lobbyist Joanne King Herring (1929-) (Zsa-Zsa Gabor lookalike?) and U.S. rep. (D-Md.) (1963-85) Clarence Dickinson "Doc" Long (1908-94), chmn. of the Subcommittee on Foreign Operations of the House Appropriations Committee begins pumping up funding for the CIA operation in Afghanistan, starting with $40M in 1983, fighting CIA reluctance to get the U.S. into a war with the Soviets, and going on to funnel $1B into the mujahideen war against the Soviets, getting Pres. Reagan in spring 1986 to overrule the Joint Chiefs of Staff and release 35-lb. shoulder-mounted heat-seeking Raytheon FIM-92 Stinger missiles to shoot down Soviet Mi-24 Hind helis to mujahideen leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar (1947-), 1977 founder of the Hezb-e-Islami Gulbuddin (HIG), and issuing the soundbyte "The U.S. had nothing whatsoever to do with these people's decision to fight... but we'll be damned by history if we let them fight with stones"; on Sept. 26, 1986 the first three Hinds are shot down, and the Stingers turn the tide, causing the helis to have to raise their ceiling, and after 100+ helis are shot down the Soviets finally pull out on Feb. 15, 1989 after 10 years; too bad, the U.S. leaves the devastated Afghanis unsupported with economic or military aid, causing the Muslim fundamentalists to take over, later using the training and weapons against the U.S., causing Charlie to issue the soundbyte "These things happened and they were glorious, but we fucked up the endgame"; Hekmatyar goes on to become PM of Afghanistan in 1993-4 and 1996, then after aiding al-Qaida he is designated an internat. terrorist on Feb. 19, 2003 by the U.S. State Dept.
