Mufti of Tajikistan: “We should not confuse Islam with terrorism. Islam is the religion of peace and tolerance.”

Once again a Muslim leader has made this claim that we have heard so often. Propaganda, because it is contrary to fact, has to be endlessly repeated in order to be accepted by the masses. And that constant repetition works: many, if not most, Americans, today believe that Islam is a religion of peace that has been hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists.

If this were so, however, then large numbers of Muslims, including the leaders of the great Islamic empires of the past, have misunderstood Islam. The history of Islam includes an unbroken record of jihad violence: wherever Muslims have gone in the world, some of them have waged jihad warfare against non-Muslims. The whole shocking record of this, hardly known at all in the West and obscured by mountains of propaganda, is in my new book The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS, the first and only one-volume narrative history of jihad in the English language. Arm yourself against the propaganda, which just keeps on coming — order the book here.

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
