Fjordman: How Islam Killed Greco-Roman Civilization

Another excellent and critically important essay by Fjordman:

From Gates of Vienna


Fjordman’s latest essay, a review of Emmet Scott’s book, has been published at FrontPage Mag. Some excerpts are below:

A number of books published in recent years have demolished the myth of an allegedly tolerant Islamic culture that preserved the Greco-Roman heritage. Ibn Warraq’s book Why the West Is Best is among the better and more accessible titles in this field. As I concluded in one of my earlier essays, the only part of the ancient Greek heritage that proved to be more compatible with Muslim than with Christian European culture was slavery, and possibly anal sex with young boys in certain parts of the Islamic world.

In early 2012 the historian Emmet Scott published Mohammed and Charlemagne Revisited: The History of a Controversy. If you have any interest in the subject of the Greco-Roman legacy and Islam as they relate to medieval Europe, I strongly recommend that you buy this book. For those who are interested, Scott has published some excerpts from this work online at the New English Review.

Many books claim to be groundbreaking, but rather few of them actually are. Emmet Scott’s Mohammed and Charlemagne Revisited falls into the latter category.

He shows convincingly that archaeological excavations paint a very clear picture of devastation brought by the Arab conquests throughout the entire Mediterranean region, from Syria to Spain, in the seventh century AD.

  1. The west is waking up, slowly and in some cases too late for anything but violence to work but more and more are waking up to the truth.

  2. It is quite amazing that it was really Islam that brought about the dark ages. People seem to miss the point that the reason the dark ages where so “dark” was the west losing its historical memory when Constantinople was sacked.

  3. There is a very real possibility that we are in the opening decades of a new dark age, another one brought about by Moslems and their allies.

  4. Islam gave us the dark ages. Islam was the cause of WWI which the Treaty of Versailles gave us WWII.

    If you ever played the game civilization by Sid Milers, Islam and the Mongols are the red barbarians taking towns that needs to be stopped or you lose the game. Islam just out lived the Mongols

  5. What stopped the mounted barbarians from destroying nations and cultures was the invention of gunpowder and guns, once the fighting turned to disciplined team work rather then individuals acting as a mob the mounted barbarians stopped being a major threat. This was true until the left decided to tear down Western Civ, now we are having to work hard to get people to defend our cultures.
