The spread of Islam in Persia
Before Islam empowered them, the Arabs were the most disliked of all peoples. But Islam, a psychological state of believing that one is right and that one can only feel self worth when everyone conforms to one’s beliefs sent them to get revenge by conquering the world.
The Muslim conquest of Persia or the Arab conquest of Iran, led to the end of the Sasanian Empire in the year 651 and the eventual decline of the Zoroastrian religion.
The success of Muslim invaders coincided with significant political, social, economic and military weaknesses in Persia that had been a major world power. The Sasanian Empire had exhausted its human and material resources after

A land on fire and the world fans the flames
The world looks on at a loss to understand what is going on. People collect around various opinions as Israel finds itself being attacked from all sides. So how do we find a real perspective and it is there any such thing as justice in a region that has never known peace since the arrival of humans?
It could well be that the original Jews were a Hindu tribe that migrated some 3000 or 4000 years ago, or even further back. After all, Hinduism has been a light to the entire world although for many that’s an inconvenient truth. But it’s clear that those who call themselves Jews

The rotten heart of a superpower

Many of the values of western civilisation come about through competition and perceived basic needs for survival which stand in the way of higher thinking and natural evolution. If we look back over history we can see how greed and desire have shaped the world.
As several hunter gatherers people had to stick to the facts because life depended on those facts, but today the world is awash in ideas and attractive physical stuff or glamour. People are competing to have others buy into their ideas and have people buy their stuff so much so that institutions have been established to buy and sell

For most of us, the history we learned in school and the history that is most commonly portrayed is really a whitewash over what really happened. In part this is because people have no way of knowing exactly what happened and for others, well, they couldn’t care less because they are only focused on their survival.
While there is evidence of human habitation on all the continents pre-dating 100,000 BC with underwater cities and habitation sites pre-dating the end of the last ice age around 10,000 BC, it’s relevant to clarify some key points. Of significance is the lion-man image dug up in Germany dated to 40,000 BC and a solidified mercury Continue reading A History Snapshot 10000 BC
An evil restraint
What is it about this code of dress that most people in the world find offensive and why are Muslim women so compelled to wear it? Note that a burqa which is also known as chadri or paranja is an enveloping outer garment worn by women in some Islamic traditions to cover their bodies when in public.
The face-veiling portion is usually a a narrow slit or a rectangular piece of semi-transparent cloth with its top edge attached to a portion of the head-scarf so that the veil hangs down covering the face and it can be turned up if the woman wants. In other styles, the niqāb of the veil is attached by one side,

Why travel and how to stay safe? Actually very few countries are safe, you can get shot or blown up in almost any country and even in relatively safe countries like New Zealand, many foreign drivers die in road accidents through their own negligence.
With the spread of terrorism, some people are becoming afraid just to go to work let alone travel. The violence the Middle East continues to escalate with recent attacks in Paris, Egypt and Turkey as Europe struggles to maintain law and order due to the influx of refugees.
Therefore, wherever you go in the world your own safety

Is there any reason why we should not be concerned about the rise of Islam?
An elderly Scottish Jew has decided to take it a little easier and take up golf. So he puts his name down at the local club. After a week he receives a message that his application has been turned down. So he goes down to the club to enquire why.
Secretary: You are aware that this is a Scottish golf club?
Scot: Aye but I am as Scottish as you are Jock.
Secretary: This means that on formal occasions we wear kilts.
Scot: Aye, so do I.
Secretary: You are aware that we wear nothing under our kilts?
Scot: Aye, neither do I.
Secretary: But you are a Jew?
Scot: Aye, I be that.
Secretary: So you are circumcised?

I hope you can help me here. The other day, I set off for work leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I hadn’t driven more than a mile down the road when the engine conked out and the car shuddered to a halt. I walked back home to get my husband’s help.. When I got home I couldn’t believe my eyes. He was in our bedroom with the neighbour’s daughter. I am 41, my husband is 44, and the neighbour’s daughter is 22.
We have been married for ten years. When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted that they had been having an affair for the past six months. I told

The Netherlands, where six per cent of the population is now Muslim, is scrapping multiculturalism:
The Dutch government says it will abandon the long-standing model of multiculturalism that has encouraged Muslim immigrants to create a parallel society within the Netherlands.
A new integration bill, which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament on June 16, reads:
“The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people. In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role.
With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society.”
The letter continues: “A more obligatory integration is justified because
