Quite an amazing discovery, thanks to the fine folk at One Jerusalem.
A US diplomat working in Algiers in the 18th century studied Islam, and the following is an analysis that the diplomat gave to president Thomas Jefferson and also John Adams:
"it is 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 (Muslim)who was slain in battle was sure to go to paradise."
Now what does the latter part sound like? The thinking pattern of suicide bombers of today. The difference of course, is that at that time, the Arab pirates of the times were doing their jihad on land and sea, attacking civilians, sailors and soldiers; today, the jihadists are even more cowardly.
