who are this Palestineans? and where they came from?

Question by OlcayKar-Turkey: who are this Palestineans? and where they came from?
a friend says” A week ago, you mentioned that Gaza was once owned by a Sultan at one time or another. Based on the historical findings, Gaza was once a staging point of so many armies, travelers, and so forth.

Gradually, ruins of walls, homes and the outline of alley ways emerged from the sand unearthed by Archaeologist. These were the bones of the Ancient Greek City of Antidon, and they were the testimony of the richness of the Gaza’s past.

Based on the facts findings, not only the Greek came this way. The Pharaos of the Ancient Egypt, the Persians, the Romans, THe Crusaders, the Turks, and many others left their mark on Gaza at one time or another.

what does this mean? it is a sermon?

Question by random: what does this mean? it is a sermon?
“On whom, therefore, is the labor of avenging these wrongs and of recovering this territory incumbent, if not upon you, you upon whom, above all other nations, God has conferred remarkable glory in arms, great courage, bodily activity, and strength to humble the heads of those who resist you ? Let the deeds of your ancestors encourage you and incite your minds to manly achievements:-the greatness of King Charlemagne, and of his son Louis, and of your other monarchs, who have destroyed the kingdoms of the Turks and have extended the sway of Church over lands previously possessed by the pagan. Let the holy sepulcher of our Lord and Saviour, which is possessed by unclean nations, especially arouse you, and the holy places which are now treated, with ignominy and irreverently polluted with the filth of the unclean. Oh, most valiant soldiers and descendants of invincible ancestors, do not degenerate; our progenitors., but recall the valor of your progenitors.

This is Pope Urban II’s speech at the Council of Clermont inciting the Franks to start the First Crusade.

He’s saying, essentially, “You’re brilliant macho soldiers from a great empire with God on your side. Evil dirty heathen foreigners have over-run Christian lands. It’s your Christian duty to go and kill them. If you don’t, you’re lame and a discredit to your ancestors.”

Isn’t this another example of nonbelievers twisting the truth of history to suit their own thinking??

Question by Molly: Isn’t this another example of nonbelievers twisting the truth of history to suit their own thinking??
“With enormous energy, the warriors of Islam struck out against the Christians shortly after Mohammed’s death. They were extremely successful. Palestine, Syria, and Egypt�once the most heavily Christian areas in the world quickly succumbed. By the eighth century, Muslim armies had conquered all of Christian North Africa and Spain. In the eleventh century, the Seljuk Turks conquered Asia Minor (modern Turkey), which had been Christian since the time of St. Paul. The old Roman Empire, known to modern historians as the Byzantine Empire, was reduced to little more than Greece. In desperation, the emperor in Constantinople sent word to the Christians of western Europe asking them to aid their brothers and sisters in the East.

That is what gave birth to the Crusades. They were not the brainchild of an ambitious pope or rapacious knights but a response to more than four centuries of conquests in which Muslims had already captured two-thirds of the old Christian world.
At some point, Christianity as a faith and a culture had to defend itself or be subsumed by Islam. The Crusades were that defense.

What do you think of this truth??
Sphyrical:

“No defense for the Crusades”
400 years of oppression by Muslims is not a defense???!?
KC:
YOU got a non-biased source??!?
Ricky:

“the point is that killing in the name of imaginary beings is absurd
and reprehensible.”

Why is it only CHRISTIANS fall under that category??
.

PEOPLE:

THIS IS A TRUTH I WAS TAUGHT IN GRADE SCHOOL 45 YEARS AGO. TODAYS UNBELIEVING CROWD HAS PERVERTED HISTORY TO SUCH AN EXTENT AT TO TEACH HALF-TRUTHS OR COMPLETE LIES.

I WAS AWARE OF THE MUSLIM CONQUESTS LONG BEFORE I LOOKED UP MY SOURCE!

RESEARCH HISTORY IN 40 YEAR OLD BOOKS IF YOU WANT THE TRUTH. OTHERWISE, CONTINUE IN YOUR BLINDED STATE.
DEUCE:

Islam did not exist until hundreds of years AFTER Christianity began and had time to spread throughout Europe.

Also the one True God of the Universe is in Christianity. Its spread was inevitable.
Numbnuts:
Obviously you haven’t stood up since the last time you answered a question of mine. Your statements are part of the errors peppered throughout the more recent perversions of the truths of history. Check REAL history books and not those written by the politically correct who want to squelch Christianity!
Doug:

Thank you for that timeline!!
It makes my point perfectly.

What does it mean when J.D said to Turk “Daily, nightly & ever so rightly”?

Best answer:

Answer by Chanandler Bong
He’s having sex around the clock and it’s good.

Seriously.

J.D.: Ahhhhhh! My man, Turk, is getting it daily, nightly, and ever so rightly!

Turk starts hushing him.

J.D.: Ah! What up, dude!

Turk pushes him away, and worriedly looks over at his closed bedroom door.

J.D.’s Thoughts: Once every 4.2 seconds a man says something stupid that a woman hears and punishes him for….

Relieved, Turk turns away and slaps J.D. in the chest.

J.D.’s Thoughts: Luckily, this wasn’t one of those times.

The door suddenly flies open and Carla emerges.

Carla: What did you just say?

J.D.: [small] “What up…dude?”

Carla: Why would you think that Turk and I slept together? Because I’m a nurse? Because I’m Latina?

The new era in Iran’s history opened in the 1920s with the coming to power of Reza Khan, a towering figure whose unique personality and unique career left a deep imprint upon the life of his nation. Reza Khan’s rapid ascent from common soldier to King could be compared with the rise of Napoleon in France or Bernadotte in Sweden; however, it was more striking in terms of the social distance covered. Napoleon had the advantage of going to a military academy before embarking on a regular army career. Bernadotte was indeed a soldier who carried “the marshal’s baton” in his knapsack and ended as king, but a king in a foreign country, to some extent imposed by external influence. Not so Reza Shah, who grew up in a purely Iranian environment, assumed the imperial rank among his own people, and thus created a real saga of a self-made man against the background of Iran’s monarchical tradition.
In his national policies two main features stood out: nationalism and modernization. In this respect he could be compared to Peter the Great, who launched Russia from her medieval slumber upon a path of modernity. Among his contemporaries Reza Shah was frequently compared to his neighbor, of whose attitudes and reforms he was fully aware. The two leaders had certainly a good deal in common: their burning nationalism, their determination to modernize their countries, and their critical attitude towards the intrusion of religion into the public life of their respective nations. But the two also differed considerably from each other. While Ataturk was willing to burn the bridges with the past, Reza Shah not only maintained the institution of monarchy but also promoted a revived consciousness of ancient Achaemenian glory, particularly through architectural symbolism. In this sense, of course, he was more fortunate because his nation had had a long record of civilized life when the Turks were still leading a nomadic existence in the steppes of central Asia.

In the subsequent chapters a group of specialists will review in greater detail the achievements of both Reza Shah and his son and successor, Mohammad Reza. In these introductory remarks we will limit ourselves to the main points in the work and struggles of these two rulers. Reza Shah’s achievements could be summed up under three headings: building up the infrastructure of a modern state, asserting independence from foreign domination, and launching sociocultural reforms. With regard to the first, Reza Shah did indeed lay down the foundations without which a modern state could not function. These included assertion of government authority and national unification in the face of various centrifugal and anarchistic forces; the creation of a reliable army under national command; establishment of a modern fiscal system based on rational organization; and development of the minimum of communications and transportation facilities compatible with the requirements of a modern state.

Assertion of independence from foreign occupation and control was the second major achievement of Reza Shah. At the very outset of his rule he had to face the threat of militant Communism imported into Iran with the advancing Red Army which, despite the repudiation by the Bolsheviks of czarist Russia’s imperialistic practices, fell into the old pattern of occupying the northern provinces of Iran and threatening the integrity of the entire state. This struggle for emancipation from foreign control was marked by two crises. The first was the Soviet attempt to set up a separatist Communist government in the province of Gilan. This required both military and diplomatic countermeasures, the outcome being the conclusion of the Soviet-Iranian Treaty of February 1921 and the subsequent withdrawal of Soviet troops from Iranian territory. The treaty, however, was negotiated by Iranian representatives in Moscow while Reza Khan, not yet fully in power, was personally commanding military operations against the northern rebels and their Soviet allies. This perhaps explains why the treaty was burdened with an onerous clause in the form of article 6 authorizing entry of Soviet troops into Iranian territory, should the latter become a base for anti-Soviet aggression. Although the attached memoranda made it clear that the provision in question comprised only the toleration by the Iranian government of the anti- Soviet activities of White Russian elements against the Soviet territory, in subsequent years Moscow tended to give a more comprehensive interpretation to this clause by including in it Iran’s formal ties with Western powers during the period following World War II, which clearly was not encompassed by the terms of the original clause. Regardless, however, of the text of the treaty in question, Reza Shah succeeded in removing the Soviet presence in Iran and in effectively curbing the activities of Soviet agents and their
The second crisis that the Shah faced was the one with Great Britain. It revolved around
