When will the world wake up and see Radical Islam for what it is - the #1 enemy of the entire civilized World?
My prayers are with the Russian people, especially the families of those directly victimized by the recent ISLAMIC terrorist acts.

We are going to have another version of the Crusades if we are to escape the horror of muslims taking over countries in Europe. Already in Paris, the outskirts are packed with muslims who will kill police without hesitation. This is not a religion, it is a cult of death. My Lord died for me, theirs want them to die for him.Please remember, moderate Islam is the Trojan Horse for the radical muslims.
