Zero Hedge reports in a recently released video by the Islamic State’s Amaq news agency, Anis Amri, the Berlin Christmas market attacker, is shown pledging his allegiance to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and calls for Islamic State supporters to take revenge of “crusaders” bombing Muslims, a video posted on Amaq news agency showed.
“My message to crusaders bombing Muslims everyday… Their blood will not go in vain. We are a nation behind them and will take revenge for them,” he said.
“I call on my Muslim brothers everywhere… Those in Europe, kill the crusader pigs, each person to their own ability.”
Speaking to camera, Amri says: “My message to crusaders bombing Muslims everyday… Their blood will not go in vain. “We are a nation behind them and will take revenge for them.”
This infographic below reveals the truth about the Crusades every Islamist and liberal needs to see:
It has been a couple of months since Barack Obama suggested that the Crusades were somehow on a par with, or even a justification for, 21st-century Islamic terrorism. I objected to Obama’s casual slur at the link, saying, among other things:
There was nothing wrong, in principle, with the Crusades. They were an appropriate (if belated and badly managed) response to the conquest of the Holy Land by Islam. Did marauding 11th century armies inevitably commit outrages? They certainly did. In fact, that still happens today. But the most unfortunate thing about the Crusades is that they failed.
I have been hanging on to this video by Dr. Bill Warner of the Center for the Study of Political Islam for a while now, waiting for the Crusades to come back into the news. Which hasn’t happened. So here it is. Dr. Warner’s point, which he makes persuasively, is that the Crusades were a mere blip compared to the centuries-long, and nearly successful, assault on Christendom by Islamic armies bent on conquest.
It is frankly ludicrous for contemporary Muslims to whine about the Crusades. …
Keep Dr. Warner’s video in mind next time someone tells you that the source of Islamic rage lies in the Crusades.
