The US and Persia could share a similar destiny. Nearly 1400 years ago, a large number of Muslim jihadists from across the scorching Arabian desert, motivated by the ideology of Islam, indoctrinated by Muhammad, unafraid of death, conquered Iran (Persia), one of the greatest, strongest and most tolerant empires known throughout the history of man.
The invasion of Persia was completed five years after the death of the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, though Persian resistance continued for centuries and does so up to the present time.
The Bedouin Arabs who toppled the Persian Sassanid Empire were propelled not only by a desire for conquest and to steal Persian jewels and treasures, but also to enslave Iranian women and children, while imposing their barbaric ideology upon the entire population. With that, they almost wiped out one of the most benevolent and ancient religions, Zoroastrianism, which is often called the mother of all revealed religions.
The political nature of Islam demanded that a conquered people not only convert to Islam but also to regard its past history as a time of darkness before the light of Islam came. Today the Islamic Republic of Iran is busy purging Pre-Islamic Persian history from children's textbooks.
Islam required conquered people to scorn their own past and love their Islamic Arab conquerors by striving to imitate them. According to Islam, all history before Islam was an era of "darkness" and should be discarded. The prophet of Islam motivated his rapidly growing body of followers to rally around him by proclaiming: if they are victorious they will have the treasures of the infidels as well as their women and children as slaves to hold or sell.
If the faithful kill the infidels in doing the work of Allah, a further reward awaits them in paradise; and, in the unlikely event that they are killed, they find themselves in Allah's glorious paradise for an eternal life of joy and bliss.
The Persians underestimated the power and dedication of this newly formed Islamic ideology of hate and violence by the Desert Dwellers. An unexpected unorthodox attack on the Persian army caused it to fall into the hands of the butchers of Islam and eventually, the culture of death prevailed and the era of Islamic terrorism began.
Americans need to learn from the Persian experience and become more vigilant.
Fourteen hundred years later, a few Islamic terrorist states, flush with petrodollars, are seeking and working hard for Islamic world domination through worldwide Islamic terrorism. They are determined to destroy everything America and the free world stands for. They intend to replace it with the most barbaric ideology known as Sharia law.
Islam sees Christian America as a formidable enemy standing in its pathway of world domination. Hence, it has waged stealth jihad on the Judeo-Christian West. It is time to wake up and wake up quickly.
In many surprising ways, America resembles the great ancient Persia, Like the ancient Persians who were the first world managers and the most tolerant empire-builders, America, by its Constitution, is also the most tolerant and benevolent nation in today’s world.
Let us hope that America's destiny will not end up like Persia's.
