The brilliant and wise Dr. Gary DeMar over at Godfather Politics just wrote a wonderful piece explaining why we are fighting against the evil of Islam today – and that we have been fighting against them for hundreds of years. President Obama is sadly ill-prepared to enjoin the true battle against Islam…

Islam had no part in building America, unless you mean strengthening our military.
Most Americans are familiar with the first line of the United States Marine Corps hymn, “From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli,” but most likely don’t know the source of the “Tripoli” reference. The line “to the shores of Tripoli” refers to the First Barbary War, specifically the Battle of Derna in 1805.
Our earliest founders were familiar with the terrorist ways of radical Islamists.
