Carlos Malleum..Charles Martel. Mayor of the Palace of the Franks, Duke and Prince of the Franks, the grandfather of Charlemagne. In 732 he raised an army of Europeans, both Christians and Pagans and stopped the Arab horde, bent on the Islamic conquest of what we now call France, in its tracks. The first major setback the Arabs had experienced during their rapid conquest of the Christian nations of the Levant and North Africa.
Like many of us who write commentaries on Islam, I use a nom de guerre. This is because the usual answer of Islam to criticism is violence against the critic. Additionally, I live in the United Kingdom where it has become a criminal offence to criticise Islam it is now an offence to cause offence to Muslims. Think of that, the cradle of democracy, the British, a people who challenged their king 700 years ago have sold out their heritage, their history by criminalising freedom of speech.
