The Jihad That Led to the Crusades

This is very detailed look at the many Islamic attacks that led up to the first Crusade.  It is instructive because it gives a look at how Islam spreads.  The scope and pace of this Islamic expansion has never been duplicated by any other entity, until now.  We are now in the early stages of the latest, or third Islamic expansion only this time it is truly on a global scale. 

This jihad is taking several basic forms: outright violent attacks on Muslim and non-Muslim alike; stealth jihad consisting of demographic, political through the ballot box, propaganda via Islamic fronts such as CAIR and MAS, lawfare by suits brought to force accommodation of Sharia law, infiltration of our educational system by grants and endowments and economic elements through massive buying of Western property and industry. 

The stealth form of jihad is by far the more dangerous because it comes wrapped in the false belief that Islam is a religion of peace and is protected by the Wests insane desire for multiculturalism and political correctness.
