Founding Anti-Jihadists

Interesting post at Atlas Shrugged about Thomas Jefferson and John Adams' thoughts on Militant Islam, in 1786:

. . . 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.

One of the sillier notions on the left is that we have provoked a previously docile Islamic world into action. A brief review of the history of Islam usually obliterates that argument.

And I like ponies.
