Understanding The Threat: One of the most frequent comments members of the Understanding the Threat team hear when presenting information about sharia (Islamic law) and the life of Islam’s prophet Mohammed is:
“What about the Crusades?”
UTT responds with: “What about the Crusades? What do you know about them? When was the first Crusade? Who ordered it? Why was the Crusade ordered?”
Generally, the response is a blank look.
Islam’s prophet Mohammad died in 632 AD after waging many battles against non-muslims in the Arabian peninsula.
The armies of Mohammed conquered Jerusalem in 638 AD without any provocation from the pilgrims there.
By 732 AD, the armies of Mohammed were in Gaul (France). The European armies led by Charles “The Hammer” Martel defeated the Mohammedans, saving the West from yet another unprovoked attacked.
During this time, the Mohammedans conquered Spain which remained under Islamic rule until the Reconquista in 1492.
