Mmm, Fresh Posting Tastes Great!

In 1786, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson met with Arab diplomats from Tunis, a country located between Libya and Algeria, who were conducting terror raids and piracy against American ships. The main issue they detailed here -

“We took the liberty to make some inquiries concerning the Grounds of their pretensions to make war upon a Nation who had done them no Injury, and observed that we considered all mankind as our Friends who had done us no wrong, nor had given us any provocation. The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

And on to other topics......

Many a great quote came from this man.

George Washington
1793 - letter to the Members of the New Church in Baltimore

We have abundant reason to rejoice that in this Land the light of truth and reason has triumphed over the power of bigotry and superstition, and that every person may here worship God according to the dictates of his own heart. In this enlightened Age and in this Land of equal liberty it is our boast, that a man's religious tenets will not forfeit the protection of the Laws, nor deprive him of the right of attaining and holding the highest Offices that are known in the United States.

George Washington
1789 - First Inaugural Address

[T]he propitious smiles of Heaven, can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained.


  1. Home for weeks due to some dubious injury(s) and all you can do is post once?

  2. Your first quote shows that Islam is the religion of peace, as it is so told to us by Islamics in the MSM. *sarcasam alert*


Always glad to have some form of reaction/response to my posts. Caustic or otherwise.
