How did the world get from just Mohammad to well over 1 billion Muslims in the world? This is the question every Westerner should have to answer. These videos and additional references will help you do that.
I found these videos on youtube and posted them awhile back. You can find them and many other very important post on this blog in the Non-Revisionist History catagory. The videos are from the Documentary “Farewell Israel: Bush, Iran and the Revolt of Islam” and I feel they are the best presentation of the history of Islam I have seen yet. The videos are not posted in any specific sequence at the youtube channel that uploaded them. I feel these videos are so important that I downloaded them, put them in their proper order, renamed them and uploaded them to this blogs YouTube Channel. I also have them backed up and will be self hosting the videos soon. THEY ARE THAT IMPORTANT.
Here is a Review of the documentary from Amazon.
“By a wide margin, the best video documentary about political Islam.
It contains the most historically accurate depiction of the legal and political side of Islam that I have seen in video form. By not employing taqiyya as Muslims want to do when talking with Westerners, it carefully shows Islamic thinking with respect to Jews, Christians and other infidels. It shows the special tradeoffs of dihimmi status and the peace that is available under Dar al-Islam.
Gilbert does a remarkable job of selecting pieces of Islam’s historical record to give the viewer an excellent appreciation for the thinking of Muslims about their relationship to god and their earthly duties and opportunities.
He generally presents accurate information and lets the viewer form his own opinion and recommended course of action. One possible exception is the authors implication that if Israel had not been formed, and had Bush not invaded the Middle East in retaliation for 9/11, the coming war could have been avoided.
This film does an excellent job of showing how the enemy thinks (and it’s not just the few folks who are fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq).
I was blown away by the quality and quantity of information about political Islam contained in this 2.5 hour video. Joel Gilbert has produced by far the best video documentary on the topic of Jihad and Islam I have ever seen. It is probably about too serious and sensitive a topic to receive a well deserved award for the best documentary of 2007. I would not trade it for a half dozen of the books on fundamentalist Islam that I have read.
Every American and everyone else in Dar al Harb needs to see this film to appreciate the seriousness and duration of the battles we are now fighting.”
These videos are less than 1 1/2 hrs of the 2 1/2 hrs of the full video, and I have intentionally left out two videos that are posted on the Youtube channel that first uploaded them because I do not agree with the documentaries main thesis that Israel will soon be annihilated in a coming war. As a result the last video ends kinda leaving you hanging. I for sure believe a war is coming but I think Israel will prevail and will win the war that will result in expanded territory and a safety buffer zone to the present Nation of Israel. Some of the posting here in the next couple of weeks will explore this possibility and will show what many in the study of end times are saying about this issue.
While I feel this is the best video representation of the history of Islam I have seen yet, there are a few things that need correcting and highlighting, I will try to do that as we go along. I believe that if you watch these videos and this other very important video series, you will have a good grasp on the history of Islam. And if you absorb all the info in the links provided, you will be able to give a great 10 minutes summary of how this world got to where it is.
Here are two articles to put the broad context of Jihad into perspective.
Mahomet established a religion by putting his enemies to death; Jesus Christ by commanding his followers to lay down their lives. Blaise Pascal

This first video claims that Mohammad was “confused” when he first started receiving his revelations. the fact is the he thought he was demon possessed.
