Christians deployed the pointed arch in both medieval Syria and Europe out of architectural necessity. Rounded arches collapse under beyond a gross weight limit. The pointed arch dates back to Christian communities in Syria and the Levant sometime back to the 7th or 8th century, who used it to build churches and even basements to warehouse goods. Some historians like T.E. Lawrence [of Arabia fame]; through their Phd studies, maintain that the pointed arch appeared in Europe without Syrian influence during the 10th century, the reason being necessity. Heavy loads collapse rounded arches.
There are indeed some artifacts which hint that the ancient Greeks may have used the pointed arch and that Christians in Alexandria were aware of its design and power. The pointed arch was however, only put to perfection during the Middle Ages or the mythical Dark Ages by Christians. Of this there is no doubt and the proof is in the Gothic stone-scrapers which dominate Europe even today. These ages are declared by some to be 'Dark' because the many tonnes of documents in Latin treasured in vaults across Europe sit undisturbed by lazy moderns and because the same moderns are almost entirely ignorant of their own civilization and its origins. Apparently Moslems created everything in the hand-waving metaphysics of multi-culturalism which is now called 'science', including arch-itecture. Romans, Greeks and Christians do not exist in this meme.
Necessity and engineering creativity, would have made the pointed arch a mandatory architectural implementation during the Middle Ages. To build higher and broader is impossible with the rounded or horseshoe styled arches. They collapse. The pointed arch secured at its sides by a support or buttress is the only way to build a 300 foot high monument to God and reason. With pointed arches working together you can created a ribbed vault which is the interior frame of a massive 100 tonne Gothic Cathedral.
“Although the Romanesque architects had solved the greatest problem of the Middle Ages, viz. how to vault throughout with stone aclerestoried church, Basilican in plan, without the aid of the pointed arch, yet the employment of the pointed arch greatly facilitated building construction. Next to the use of diagonal ribs and flying buttresses it was the greatest improvement introduced into medieval architecture (Francis Bond). The pointed arch is stronger than any other kind of arch; it has a more vertical and a less lateral thrust than a semicircular one. It was of the greatest use in vaulting.”
Ribbed vaulting was another European invention as was the flying buttress. Both are found no where else in the world together in such harmony, but only in Europe. It is highly unlikely that these 3 inventions of genius – the pointed arch, the ribbed vault, and the buttress – were 'stolen' by Europeans from 'others', as is so often alleged. This depreciates our civilization and legacy and debases the intelligence of our ancestors. More realistic is the common-sense notion that necessity made these inventions inevitable. Bishop Suger in the 11th century, using his Bible as a template wanted to build a Solomnic temple whose Old Testament measurements of 30 feet for the first floor and 60 feet for the 'upper', for the Cathedral at Saint Denis near Paris. Above these levels Suger built the 144 cubits of Revelation's Temple or about 300 feet of masonry.
It is clear that in trying to build to Biblical standards using stone the options are limited. Many Cathedrals cracked and crashed when they ignored the 3 innovations already mentioned, or implemented them incorrectly. Amiens today, one of the largest Cathedral structures is an example, as is Beauvais the largest, which has collapsed twice in its history. Yet no where else in the world do we see such architecture, nor such a glorious dedicated to God's faith and reason. Only reason could build such temples to faith.
I have yet to see the Atheist or Moslem equivalent.
Witless worms in the West ascribe every single invention to Moslems. From airplanes to the crankshaft, the cult of Muhammad invented all according to these huge brains. With the exception of the Atheist claim that 'Hitler was a Catholic', few myths portray a deeper ignorance or stupidity than claiming that the Meccan cult, which today is mired in the worst form of darkness imaginable, created the modern world. Islam militates against reason, inquiry, faith and even humane characteristics such as universal kindness, humility, forgiveness, and the golden rule. It could not as a cultural force, have invented anything. The modern Moslem world proves that.
In studying the Islamic era so beloved by most academics and media experts, there is precious little that one can point to as being invented by Moslems. Even the retention of ancient thought and philosophy – much of which, it needs to be strongly emphasized, was either incoherent or plainly wrong – was the work of Jews, Christians, Persians and non-Arabs with Moslemified names. Edison was an American. If the Russians had conquered the US and changed his name to Edinsonov he would still remain an American. So it goes with Islam and its predatory squatting on more intelligent cultures.
Architecture is a fine example of Moslem lies. Almost any major mosque built during the Moslem era of Jihad and squatting; was the design and implementation of Jews and Christians. There are no Moslem architects. Western apologists for the moon cult cannot name any, or if they dare to dredge up a few, they are Jews or Christians with Moslem names. The mosque itself as a design was stolen from Byzantine templates and mixed with some Persian appurtenances. From domes to colonnades, the mosque does not invent anything.
All of the materials and techniques employed by mosque buildings were non-Moslem. Concrete and the arch came from Rome. The keystone portal from Greece. Both of these artifacts allow the creation of truly large enclosures including domes [the Pantheon], amphitheatres, baths and hillside temples of the Roman-Greek world. The pointed arch, which the worms say is 'Moslem' is anything but. It was created by the Assyrian Christians during the 8th century.
Apparently the Moslems-invented-architecture cult is ignorant of the Pantheon, built in 118–135 AD by Apollodorus of Damascus. An admixture of concrete is the reason why this temple can be built on this scale and still survive today. This dome has a span of 43.2 metres (142 feet) and it remained as the greatest dome in the world until the 15th century construction of the Florence Cathedral by the genius – Catholic – Brunelleschi (1420–36).
Then there is of course the dome of the Hagia Sophia (the Church of the Holy Wisdom) in Constantinople. Built by the Christian-Byzantine Emperor Justinian during the years 532–537 AD, it was converted into a mosque by the invading Muslims who slaughtered their way into Constantinople in 1453 AD. This dome has a breadth of 31 metres (102 feet) and it is the Hagia Sophia that is the template for Moslem architecture including the Sultan Ahmed Mosque (completed 1616 AD), the Şehzade Mosque (completed 1548 AD), the Süleymaniye Mosque (completed 1557 AD), the Rüstem Pasha Mosque (completed 1563 AD), and the Kılıç Ali Paşa Mosque (completed 1580 AD). The Moslems simply employed Byzantine architects and stole their designs.
We also find within the magnificent Christian buildings of Cathedrals, Churches and Abbeys, stained glass dating from the 7th century; ribbed vaulting dated from the 11th century; and outside the flying buttress first used in the 11th century. These are extraordinary innovations which allowed enormous spaces to be built to the glory of God, have no corollary within Islamic 'architecture', though the multiculturalists seem to twitter and orgasm over the colonnade at Cordoba – a structure built by Christians and which is about as innovative as someone copying the Parthenon from Athens.
There was no golden age of Islam. Any and all 'inventions' ascribed to 'Moslems' were the work of Jews, Christians, Berbers, Persians or Hindus, with Islamified names. One such 'genius' was Al Kindi. He was a Christian Arab who was a 'sage' at the Caliphate court in Baghdad some 1200 years ago. Far from being a 'Moslem', Kindi was critic of the moon cult of Mecca and satirized the nonsense that is the Koran with penetrating analysis.
Kindi's work was so damaging to Islam, that anyone found with copies of his critiques would have their house razed to the ground. But remember – Islam is tolerance, love and inquiry. So the huge brains and multiculti loving nitwits tell us. It should be pointed out that Kindi did not invent, innovate, or improve. Like most Arabs he simply accepted Greek theology [see here]. His main contribution was to drive a stake into the heart of Islamic theology by mocking the Koran's illiteracy and obvious mendacity. This is why Moslems were forbidden to read his work....
Nazism and Islam have much in common. Hitler venerated Islam as the polytheocratic apogee of control, power, violence and cult rule. All within the state. No individuality. Everything subsumed by the state and its cult. The 'volk', the 'umma'. The Kampf, the Koran. The 'prophet', the 'savior'. Moslems as the ubermench. German Aryans as the master-race. Jews, genetic inferiors, Slavs, Catholics to be murdered. Non-Moslems to be butchered. Both Islam and Nazism are barbaric primitive and simpleton cults.
Will to power, follow the leader, lies and propaganda as truth; reality replaced by inevitable dialecticism and divine favor. Hitler often said that the divinity blessed the natural selection impulse of Nazism. The Nazis had a moral duty to expunge undesirables from the human race so that natural evolution could proceed faster. Moslems likewise believe that they are chosen by the moon deity to rule the earth and impose the moon deity's will and force all into submission to its divine 'will'.
Hitler was fascinated by Islam. Hence his love for Turkey, Atarturk and the cult of Mecca. Famoulsy he wanted to turn Linz his hometown in Austria, into a Mecca of the Nazi cult, with pilgrims no doubt circumambulating a Nazi Kabaa and kissing a sanctified black rock which was granted to Hitler by divine intervention....
‘It’s been our misfortune to have the wrong religion,” Hitler complained to his pet architect Albert Speer. “Why did it have to be Christianity, with its meekness and flabbiness?” Islam was a Männerreligion—a “religion of men”—and hygienic too. The “soldiers of Islam” received a warrior’s heaven, “a real earthly paradise” with “houris” and “wine flowing.” This, Hitler argued, was much more suited to the “Germanic temperament” than the “Jewish filth and priestly twaddle” of Christianity.'
“Through the 1920s and 1930s, Nazi publications lauded Turkey as a friend and forerunner. In 1922, for example, the Völkischer Beobachter, the Nazi Party’s weekly paper, praised Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the “Father of the Turks,” as a “real man,” embodying the “heroic spirit” and the Führerprinzip, or führer principle, that demanded absolute obedience. Atatürk’s subordination of Islam to the state anticipated Hitler’s strategy toward Christianity. The Nazis presented Turkey as stronger for having massacred its Armenians and expelling its Greeks. “Who,” Hitler asked in August 1939, “speaks today of the extermination of the Armenians?”
“A revolutionary idea must be seeded before, in Heidegger ’s words, “suddenly the unbound powers of being come forth and are accomplished as history.” Seven decades passed between Europe’s revolutionary spring of 1848 and the Russian Revolution of 1917. The effects of Germany’s ideological seeding of Muslim societies in the 1930s and ’40s are only now becoming apparent.”
Nazism not only venerated Islam it also seeded it with ideas, money and political gravitas. The Germans were fast allies of the Moslems during WW2. Both cults possessed similar world views. Fascism in its purest sense means the subordination of the individual to the cult and state. Nazism and Islam demand complete submission to this ideal. Exterminating Jews, Catholics and those outside of the cult were characteristics that both fascisms enthusiastically embraced and implemented.
Hitler hated Christianity. He adored Islam. This might give the modern observer a clue or two about the nature of the 'real Islam.'
Pope Frank from the failed Latino-Caudillo state of Argentina, a Statist-corruptocracy with no culture to speak of; believes that criticizing a moon cult from Mecca, where Baal [or Allah] is the chief God [Allahu Akhbar]; should be made illegal. Pope Frank's and the Vatican Curia's ignorance of the Meccan cult is not only perplexing, but imminently dangerous. It was the Catholic Church which saved Europe from Islam during the Medieval era. Under the leadership of such faineants and cowards such as Pope Frank, it will not be the Catholic Church which saves Europe this time from the interminable fascistic Jihad of Islam. Though I understand from huge brains that Moslem actions have nothing to do with Islam....
Frank is so eloquent: “One cannot react violently, but if [someone] says something bad about my mother, he can expect a punch. It’s to be expected,” the pontiff said. “There are a lot of people who speak badly about other religions. They make fun of them. What happens is what happens with my friend [who insults my mother]. There is a limit.”
What are the limits dear Pope? Who sets and polices them? Are you the possessor of all the rules and definitions about 'limits'? When Moslems parade around screaming that Jews and Christians must die is that okay ? When I read 1600 verses of Kufar-hate speech in Mein Koran does that pass the limit? Of course not. Frank means that non Moslems have no right to criticize the cult of Mecca. He states this while under a heavy guard to protect himself from Moslems:
Pope Frank also believes that plant food causes weather; and that pollution is linked to the climate. Obviously Frank is a scientist and should be awarded various Phds post-haste:
“The Argentinean-born pontiff has frequently warned against the despoiling of the planet and has expressed concern over the impact of rising tides and natural catastrophes on poor countries. As a result, some expect him to endorse the idea that human activity is a cause of global warming. If so, the Catholic Church could give a major boost those who believe human activity has caused climate change..”
Globaloneywarming. The cult of the truly deranged. Co2 is 4/100 of 1 % and follows climate. Trace chemicals do not generate primal forces of causation. Grade 9 science used to teach that.
Pope Frank is just another leftist Catholic, who with limited reason, discernment and courage, simply imbibes the unscientific narratives of popular culture and imbues them into Catholic dogma, including mud-to-men or Evolution, which Frank says is quite likely true.
How did such a fool become Pope?
Moslem Jihad. 1400 years of it. The Moslems failed to take France in 732 and 736. They are back for round 3. The French elite of course could care less. For these big brains there are Moslem 'radicals' and there is the docile, peaceful mass of 'moderate Moslems'. In reality there is no radical Islam. There is just Islam. Read Mein Koran. There is a good reason why the Nazis and Moslems were allies. One fact amongst many is their anti-semitic racism. Islam is a cult dedicated in part to not only sex, slavery and squatting, but killing Jews and Christians or as they call non Moslems, Kufars, a word which means the same as dog dung. Kufars are not humans, they are Nazi untermensch – which also illustrates how the Nazis and Moslems were quite similar in their world views.
The real Moslem threat is always underplayed by the government and the media. Currently there must be at least 8 million Moslems in France, out of a total population of 65 million.
Total French Population: 65 Million
Government estimates of number of Moslems in France: 6 million
Number of Mosques in France: 2500
New Mosques being built: 150 [probably quite a bit higher]
Average number of Moslems to support a Mosque: 3000 [with 51% active population]
Real Moslem population in France not including illegal Moslems: 7.9 million
In other words the French government is understating the Moslem population by 2 million. Moslems now comprise at least 1/8 or 12 % of the French population. Within 20 years this will double. We know this to be true because Moslem leaders in France often claim that the country needs 4.000 mosques to satisfy demand. That is current and near future demand. At the 4.000 mosque threshold this would indicate a real Moslem population in the near future of some 12 million or about 22% of the total French population. This goes far beyond what the French government estimates will be the Moslem population in the near-future. This is not surprising, since governments have every incentive to lie about the Moslem threat.
Even worse for the children of Charles Martel and Charlemagne there are far more practicing Moslems in Francistan as Catholics. Gatestone Institute estimates from IFOP that 1.9 million Catholics practice weekly in France. This is dramatically under the number of practicing Moslems – some 4 million - both legal and illegal in France. France is not Catholic, at least not a professing Catholic state. Its main theology is either Islam or if you like Atheist-Darwinism where mud became men; and bacteria grew complex human organs. Culture is King. Culture has always been King. Change your culture and watch what follows.
“Although 64% of the French population (or 41.6 million of France's 65 million inhabitants) identifies itself as Roman Catholic, only 4.5% (or 1.9 million) of those actually are practising Catholics, according to the French Institute of Public Opinion (or Ifop, as it is usually called).”
France is largely an Atheist-Agnostic country with a broad background relief of Islam and mosques – a perfect feeding ground for a totalitarian theology which purports to organize and explain all of life and society, generating its own frenzied growth from the deformed world-view of multiculturalism, and unfettered immigration. It remains to be seen if the French can revivify the spirit of Martel and Jean De La Valette and repulse this latest Moslem Jihad. Or if the Atheist-Agnostic world-view of chaos, and 'what does it matter anyways', will prevail and turn France into Libya or Morocco. Reverse colonialism?
The Moslem civil war in Europe has been in train for 15 years. With 45 million cult devotees to cull Jihad Ghazi from; civil conflict is assured. Why ? Mein Koran and Mein Hadith which make up 80% of the Moslem Trilogy [with Muhammad's biography or Sira the rest]; are documents mainly of war. These books express profound Moslem-supremacist ideals; a will to power to dominate non Moslems; vocalizations to war and murder those who oppose the cult; misogyny and female control; sex and Kufar slave trading; and Submission utterly and completely to Sharia Law itself largely based on the Hadith.
The problem with Islam, is Islam.
There is no moderate means within Islam if you follow the program which is demanded. This is because Islam demands immoderation, violence, hate, slaving, polygamy, war and Jihad. There is no moderation in Jihad for example. You can't be a moderate Jihadi and Islam has over 1600 verses of violence in the Koran and about the same in the Hadith stating that violence, hate and war against the Kufar is mandatory. There is nothing moderate about demanding war and extermination.
In Europe since 9-11 there has been over 3.000 Moslem attacks of some variety, both large and small. Some are one-on-one anti-Semitic attacks. A Moslem gang of thugs killing a lone Jew out for a walk or the famous beheading of Theo van Gogh in an Amsterdam street while Dutch people watched; or Private Lee Rigby beheaded in London while passersby gaped and did nothing. Other Moslem attacks are large scale slaughters in the London and Madrid bombings. Quite a few are rapes. Moslems are the largest group of rapists in Europe committing hundreds if not thousands of rapes every year. These misogynist acts could be added to the list of Moslem atrocity as well.
Soon Europe will look like your average north central Nigerian village inhabited by Kufars. 2.000 Christians were murdered by Moslems aka 'Boko Harem' and the media yawned. Maybe when the stacks of dead start to pile up in Europe's civil war the media might actually name Islam as the main enemy. Then again, probably not.
Governments of course lie about how many Moslems live in their states. In Britain the offical numbers are 5% of the total population is Moslem. However, if you add up the mosques in the UK, and estimate the average number of Moslems it takes to support a mosque, the numbers double. So all of the government figures understate the problem. In this vein civil conflict is assured as the numbers of Moslems in Atheist-Marxist Europe double by 2030 or earlier:
30–40% Rep. of Macedonia
Clive Owen stars in 'The Children of Men', a movie about the last child born on earth. A plague has wiped out the fertility of women. No babies are produced – except one to a Black mother in the UK. The most interesting part about this movie is its backdrop. It is the year 2027 and England is in civil war, with marching Moslem Jihadists attempting to take power, the cities reduced to rubble, a police state in force, and misery and war aplenty. Given the rise of Islam in the UK, such a future scenario not only looks possible but probable.
[Marching Jihadis in the 2006 movie 'The Children of Men']
The UK has a total population of about 55 million. The government estimates that 5% are Moslem; or roughly 2.5 million. This is of course a monumental lie. Using some common sense one can estimate the true size of the UK Moslem 5th column:
-Current number of Mosques, prayer rooms; 1669
-Mosques being built or planned: 300
-Total Number of Mosques in the near future: 1969
-Less active number of Moslems per mosque: 1200 [49%]
Total number of Moslems in the UK: 1969 Mosques x 2500 Moslems per mosque or: 5 million, roughly double the government's official propaganda. In fact 5 million might be low. Some mosques are 'super mosques' and contain a lot more than 3000 active and less-than-active Moslem devotees. Some are triple that number. The actual Moslem population in England, legal and illegal, is likely upwards of 6 million or more than 10% of the population. This accords with common sense and the sensory observations that in most major UK towns and cities, Moslems and their mosques seem to be everywhere.
This does not mean that the 'active' population of a Mosque is engaged in Moslem Jihad. But since Mosques were instituted by Muhammad to be centers of totalitarian Islam; it stands to reason that the more active a Moslem is at his local mosque; the more 'radicalized' that is to say, the more mainstream Koranic-Moslemified he will become. Mosques are the Moslem centers of Jihad in the West. Pure and simple.
Want more crime? Build more Mosques. Moslems are now 12 % of the prison population in the UK; and that will rise to 20% soon. There is an obvious connection between more mosques and more crime including; sex-slaving of young girls, prostitution, drugs and rapes.
The largest Mosque in Europe will be a Moslem supremacist symbol right near the Olympic stadium in London – in fact it will in part over shadow the Olympic [Kufar] construction. It is inevitable that the big brains and multuculti loving powers-that-be will push through this monstrosity. It is all apart of the Marxist-Statist elite's plan to destroy Judeo-Christianity and impose PC multiculturalism, along with Gaia worship as the state 'religion'.
Terror is at the very root and core of the Muhammadan cult. Violence, killing, murder, beheading and crucifying all make appearances both in Mein Koran and the life and Jihad-times of Muhammad. Islam was born out of war, hate, violence and Jihad. Anyone who has read the Koran or the Hadith knows this. Anyone with even a passing, turgid knowledge of Islamic history knows this. So when Moslems the world over, from Paris and Amsterdan to Nigeria, Iraq and southern Thailand, murder those who 'insult the prophet'; or who defame Islam; they are merely enacting the following Koranic verses:
Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority: their abode will be the Fire: And evil is the home of the wrong-doers! (3:151)
Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them." This because they contended against Allah and His Messenger: If any contend against Allah and His Messenger, Allah is strict in punishment. (8:12-13)
Let not the unbelievers think that they can get the better (of the godly): they will never frustrate (them). Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly. (8:59-60)
And Allah turned back the Unbelievers for (all) their fury: no advantage did they gain; and enough is Allah for the believers in their fight. And Allah is full of Strength, able to enforce His Will. And those of the People of the Book who aided them - Allah did take them down from their strongholds and cast terror into their hearts. (So that) some ye slew, and some ye made prisoners. And He made you heirs of their lands, their houses, and their goods, and of a land which ye had not frequented (before). And Allah has power over all things. (33:25-27)
It is He Who got out the Unbelievers among the People of the Book from their homes at the first gathering (of the forces). Little did ye think that they would get out: And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allah! But the (Wrath of) Allah came to them from quarters from which they little expected (it), and cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their dwellings by their own hands and the hands of the Believers, take warning, then, O ye with eyes (to see)! (59:2)
That is because they resisted Allah and His Messenger: And if any one resists Allah, verily, Allah is severe in punishment. (59:4)
Of a truth ye are stronger (than they) because of the terror in their hearts, (sent) by Allah. This is because they are men devoid of understanding. (59:13)
For Western Phds, academics, media 'experts' and of course the spineless witless politician, the above verses mean Islam is peace; and that terror has nothing whatsoever to do with Islam.

Nearly two years after the “Arab Spring” began in Egypt, the nation’s Muslim Brotherhood president has arrogated to himself dictatorial powers, and is ramming through a new constitution that will effectively extinguish the last vestiges of Egyptian democracy and establish Egypt as a Sharia state. Just as I said back in January 2011, when the uprisings against Mubarak began, for the people in Egypt who had real power to affect change, the “Arab Spring” was never about democracy and pluralism, despite the ululations of the Western press; it was always about imposing Islamic law upon Egypt. And now, with the new constitution, here we are.
These are not the regular beatings and vandalism against Christians, Hindus and Buddhists but religion-oriented attacks in which someone dies at the hand of a member of the”religion of peace.”
Have you done your shopping yet? It’s Hatred and Violence in the Qur’an Awareness Month — what better time to buy a bomb vest for the mujahid you love?
Inspired by a remark from Pat Condell in this video, I have proclaimed December to be Hatred and Violence in the Qur’an Awareness Month. After all, November was Islamophobia Awareness Month, and certainly the hatred and violence in the Qur’an kills many, many more people than “Islamophobia” ever has or ever will, and so it is far more deserving than “Islamophobia” of a month of its own.
