The View From 1776

Islam Added to the Time-Line

At the suggestion of Phillip South, the historical time-line has been revised to include the relentless attacks by Islam, which formed a constant background of terror in Christendom for a thousand years beginning in 622 AD. 

The purpose is to emphasize that today’s warlike aggression inherent in Islam is nothing new.
