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 was finally became kaput in 1922-3, after which the caliphate was officially abolished on Mar. 3, 1924. 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 and/or Marxist, 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. Sadly, 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, power to the people.
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.
In Jan. 1973 Shuaib Abdul Raheem (Gary Earl Robinson) (1950-) and three other members of the Muslim separatist Dar ul-Islam Mosque in Brooklyn, N.Y. took 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 remained on location for the duration of the 2-day siege; on June 4, 2010 during Obama Time Raheem was granted parole, outraging the public.
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?
On Mar. 21, 1983 U.S. Pres. Ronald Reagan meets with leaders of the Taliban to proclaim Afghanistan Day, praising them as "valiant and courageous Afghan freedom fighters", and uttering the Islam history ignoramus soundbyte that they are the "moral equivalent of America's Founding Fathers" - does he know who's rolling over in Washington's tomb?

Imad Fayez Mughniyah (Mughniyeh) (1962-2008) masterminded the bombing?; Lebanese Shiite Twelver Grand Ayatollah Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah (Fadl-Allah) (1935-2010), the spiritual leader of Hezbollah, who was believed to be behind the attack was targeted by the CIA, but survives a Saudi-funded car bomb assassination attempt in Beirut on Mar. 9, 1985; a polished stone monument to the two Muslim Lebanese youths who drove the trucks is erected in Behesht-e Zahra, the largest cemetery in Iran, with the inscription: "Their names we do not know, but we will continue their path."
