Islamic Jihad Significance of "The Cordova Center"

For those who naively think that the desire for "peaceful" Muslims to build a mosque and cultural center at Ground Zero isn't a declaration of Islamic victory over America, you may want to rethink your position.

I was listening to the Rick Roberts radio show this morning and he proceeded to mention that the cultural center that is to be built near the mosque just a few miles from where the World Trade Center Twin Towers were destroyed by evil radical Islamic terrorists, is to be named "The Cordova Center." Roberts checked history about that name and found out that the name"Cordova" has much significance to radical Islamic terrorists and their bloody history of Muslim jihad. It was in Cordova Spain where Muslims conquered the city back in 719.


785 Foundation of the Great Mosque of Cordova

786-809 During the Caliphate of Harun al-Rashid, Christians and Jews are ordered to wear yellow identification patches on their clothing. Eventually yellow would be used to signify "Jew" and blue used to identify "Christian". Neither Jews nor Christians were allowed to wear green - green was reserved for use by Muslims only.

789 Rise of Idrisid emirs (Muslim Crusaders) in Morocco; foundation of Fez; Christoforos, a Muslim who converted to Christianity, is executed.

Cordova, Spain became the seat of Arab governorship.


Islam and jihad
10) Jihad - the first 1,300 years

CAIRO, Egypt - Al-Qaida in Iraq warned Pope Benedict XVI on Monday that its war against Christianity and the West will go on until Islam takes over the world, and Iran's supreme leader called for more protests over the pontiff's remarks on Islam.

..."You and the West are doomed"...

- Associated Press, 9/19/06

TEHRAN, Iran - At the October 26, 2005, Tehran conference, [Iran president Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad spoke ... Ahmadinejad said Iran has developed a strategic "war preparation plan" for what it calls the "destruction of Anglo-Saxon civilization."

Legacy of the religion of peace

As shown above, violent jihad and its proponents are threatening the West even now. How many of those threats are credible and how many are empty bravado is anyone's guess, but some fraction are real. Islamic jihad is killing people around the world - a toll that is being added to every week, not including Iraq and Afghanistan.

This rage against civilization is nothing new. The first thousand years of Islamic jihad took far more lives than the 9/11 attacks and spread more terror. Early Muslims systematically killed huge portions of their non-Islamic neighbors, and their jihadi warriors pushed far north in an attempt to convert or eradicate much of Europe. Jihad was then, as it is now, primarily a product of Islamic theology - not a reaction against American policies, western decadence, or anything else. The West may have its share of vice and shortcomings, but it was centuries of Islamic jihad that provoked that violent defensive thrust from Europe now referred to as the First Crusade.

The history of Islamic jihad which led up to the First Crusade is briefly summarized [here]. Scan the timeline if just to ask yourself if or at what point YOU would have ordered a defensive strike.
