TJ and the Berbers
The crux of the manner, then and now:
In March 1786, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams went to London to negotiate with Tripoli's envoy, ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman (or Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja). When they enquired "concerning the ground of the pretensions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury", the ambassador replied:
"It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every Musselman who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy's ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once."
That was the last straw from Jefferson. Note this: The Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom was drafted in 1777 (however it was not first introduced into the Virginia General Assembly until 1779) by Thomas Jefferson in the city of Fredericksburg, Virginia. On January 16, 1786, the Assembly enacted the statute into the state's law.
This was what truly the the Separation of Church and State law which later failed during the Ratification and was compromised down to what we have today—the Establishment Clause. If you know anything about Jefferson, you would know that quote would put him over the top. If you have seen his writings, you would know that he considered Islam and Islamists beneath whale poop. He was under no illusion that we were not at war with Islam. We have been for our entire history and we are still now. To think otherwise is both naïve and delusional.
The First Barbary War (1801–1805), also known as the Tripolitanian War and the Barbary Coast War, was the first of two Barbary Wars, in which the United States and Sweden fought against the four North African states known collectively as the "Barbary States"—all Islamic Caliphates. Three of these were nominal provinces of the Ottoman Empire, but in practice autonomous: Tripoli, Algiers, and Tunis. The fourth was the independent Sultanate of Morocco.
Just before Jefferson's inauguration in 1801, Congress passed naval legislation that, among other things, provided for six frigates that "'shall be officered and manned as the President of the United States may direct.' ... In the event of a declaration of war on the United States by the Barbary powers, these ships were to 'protect our commerce and chastise their insolence—by sinking, burning or destroying their ships and vessels wherever you shall find them.
On 10 May 1801, the Pasha declared war on the U.S., not through any formal written documents but in the customary Barbary manner of cutting down the flagstaff in front of the U.S. Consulate. Algiers and Tunis did not follow their ally in Tripoli. Based upon the legislation passed by Congress, we were at War, prima facie. Period.
In 1812, the new Dey of Algiers, Hajji Ali, rejected the American tribute negotiated in the 1795 treaty as insufficient and declared war on the United States. AGAIN! We were at War!
Once the Treaty of Ghent ended war with Britain, President James Madison requested that Congress declare war on Algiers, with Congress authorizing the use of force on March 3, 1815. The U.S. Navy, greatly increased in size after the War of 1812, was able send an entire squadron, led by Commodore Stephen Decatur, to the Mediterranean. Once again, a Declaration of War!
“Google” this and you will learn that Snopes, the “research” arm of Soros, will try to convince you it never happened; that there was never a Declaration of War and that we certainly were not at war with Islam. What do you think Jefferson would say? These idiots at Snopes couldn’t research an outhouse! To hear Snopes tell it, you would believe the Musselmen built this country. These idiots can’t even pitch a tent properly.
Know this—you can never negotiate with Islam. There is only one thing they understand. When they take up their scimitars, annihilate them and that is your only option. A treaty with such caliphates is toilet paper. Know and understand their favorite for the infidels—Taqiyya. No treaty ended the Barbary Wars. Guess what did? Their complete utter defeat and taking control of them, as follows:
Admiral Duperré took command in Toulon of an armada of 600 ships and then headed for Algiers. Following a plan for the invasion of Algeria originally developed under Napoleon in 1808, General de Bourmont then landed 34,000 soldiers 27 kilometres (17 mi) west of Algiers, at Sidi Ferruch, on 14 June 1830. To face the French, the dey sent 7,000 janissaries, 19,000 troops from the Beys of Constantine and Oran, and about 17,000 Kabyles. The French established a strong beachhead and pushed toward Algiers, thanks in part to superior artillery and better organization. On 19 June the French defeated the dey's army at the battle of Staouéli, and entered Algiers on 5 July after a three-week campaign. The dey accepted capitulation in exchange for his freedom and the offer to retain possession of his personal wealth. Five days later, he went into exile in Naples with his family. The Turkish Janissaries also quit the territory, leaving for Turkey. The Dey's departure ended 313 years of Ottoman rule of the territory. It also made Algeria in full control of the French. The French were not colonists in this case but they sure as hell were the conquistadores.
Know this too—Trump too is an adherent to the Principles of Jefferson and that is at the crux of his case now before the Supreme Court. He, along with Jefferson and I, believe they have no business here but making trouble. He too knows the very simple understanding; you cannot make treaties, they lie like dogs [Taqiyya], you have to kill them. Welcome to the real world.
Jefferson was right, once again, then and now.
