11th September & the Gates of Vienna

Out of 327,000,000 Americans only a few thousand know why the terrorist attack by Muslims on the Twin Towers was committed on the 11th September 2018. It was on the 11th September 1683 that Muslim armies were at last confronted and surrounded by a relatively united Christendom at the Gates of Vienna thus saving Europe once again from being subjugated in humiliation and degradation by Islam’s Sharia.
The Ottoman Empire had been expanding its onslaught into Europe even before Constantinople fell to the Turks in 1453. Wherever Muslim armies went, they invariably plundered cities, took slaves, turned churches into mosques, and converted tens of thousands of Christian captives to Islam at the points of swords.
The Sultan’s armies overran and subjugated Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, and Serbia. They turned Hungary into a compliant vassal and made war repeatedly on Austria and the Polish-LithuanianCommonwealth. The Ottomans had designs on Vienna, because the fall of the city would open the way into the heart of Europe through Austria and the rich principalities of southern Germany.
Having failed to take Vienna in the siege of 1529, the Turks prepared a second attempt in 1683 under the leadership of the Grand Vizier, Pasha Kara Mustafa, with their Tatar allies. The Muslims made their preparations and fought their way towards the capital, overrunning Austrian villagesand smaller cities in their path and taking thousands of captives and enormous plunder.
As the Ottoman hordes approached Vienna, King Leopold fled west with most of the citizens, leaving a garrison of about 11,000 soldiers and 5,000 civilian volunteers to hold the city against the Turks. The Viennese razed buildings in the area around the city walls in order to deny the enemy cover, and brought livestock and provisions into the city to prepare for a siege.
On July 16th, 1683, the second siege of Vienna began. The tiny garrison in the city was no match forKara Mustafa’s army of 140,000, but the Grand Vizier decided to starve the city into submissionrather than attempt a frontal assault on its defences.
For nearly two long months, from July 14 to early September 1683, Vienna endured the siege of the vast Turkish army. The Turkish Serasker (Supreme Commander), Grand Vizier Kara “Black” Mustafa, demanded surrender, but Count Ernst Rüdiger von Starhemberg, commander of Vienna’s garrison, answered back:

“Let him come; I’ll fight to the last drop of blood.”

That last drop of blood had almost been reached. Turkish mines and bombardment opened huge gaps in the city walls. Sewage, rubble, and corpses littered the streets and disease ran rampant. After fending off 18 major Turkish assaults, only a third of the originally 11,500-strong garrison remained fit for combat and their munitions were nearly exhausted.
Starhemberg knew that Vienna’s defences were at their end. The city’s only hope was the timely arrival of the anxiously awaited Christian relief army. Without that army, the Turks would pour into the city and wantonly enslave and butcher its inhabitants.
One of the main reasons the Turks had had such success in the Balkans and Eastern Europe was that their Christian enemies were unwilling to unite against them. Just as the fractious Christian leaders were unwilling to fight against the Muslim Arab hordes in the 7th century.
Since the Caliphate and the Ottoman Empire were one and the same thing, Muslims, Islam experienced no such fractiousness, and it was a united horde that advanced inexorably through the mountain passes and across the plains of Europe towards Vienna
At least Starhemberg could take heart in knowing that conditions were not much better among the enemy. The Turks were also suffering from out of control disease owing to inadequate sanitary facilities, casualties were horrendous, and morale was sagging.
Worse still, there were rumours of an immense Christian army approaching from the Vienna Woods. Nonetheless, Mustafa’s confidence in victory remained undiminished.

Mustafa had another reason to press on; he feared the Sultan’s punishment in the event of failure. By laying siege to Vienna, Mustafa disobeyed Sultan Mehmed IV (1648-1687), who intended that Mustafa do little more than capture Imperial frontier fortresses. But such modest aims did not satisfy Mustafa.

When Jan Sobieski the King of Poland set off for Vienna in early September, the Viennese garrison was in desperate straits. The people of the city were starving, and the city had suffered serious damage from the Turkish bombardment.
The Ottoman artillery pieces were of inferior design hence were unable to reduce the city walls, so the Turks had taken to tunnelling. They had ample gunpowder, and their engineers dug mines under the walls and set off a number of charges that did serious damage and opened gaps in the walls. The Viennese rallied to build barriers in the gaps, and managed to keep the Turks out, but it was only a matter of time until Kara Mustafa succeeded. The Viennese garrison prepared for a last-ditch defence within the city walls.
It was then, at the last possible moment on the evening of September 11th, that Jan Sobieski arrived at a hill north of the city, leading a force of 40,000 Poles and their German and Austrian allies. The battle began soon afterwards, in the early morning hours of September 12th.
The Austrians and Germans attacked the Turks first at the centre and on the left flank. The Turks counterattacked, but held back a significant portion of their forces in anticipation of entering the city through a breach in the wall. That very morning the Grand Vizier had prepared a second and more powerful charge to be set off under the Löbel bastion, one that would throw the city open to the Turkish forces once and for all.
At about the same time the King of Poland, in the van with the fearsome Winged Hussars and with 20,000 men behind him, led a cavalry charge down the hill into the right flank of the Ottoman army. The Hussars were one of the most formidable fighting forces of the time, and the sound of the wind through the feathers of their artificial wings was said to unnerve the enemies’ horses and drive superstitious soldiers into a panic.
The battle was over in one day. The King drove through the Turkish lines, and, seeing his success,the Vienna garrison sallied forth from the city and hit the Turks from the rear. Demoralized by these attacks and their failure to breach the wall, the Turks fled eastwards in haste, abandoning their tents, weapons, battle standards, provisions, and slaves.
The siege was broken and city was saved. Jan III Sobieski was received as the hero of Vienna. Though it was not evident at the time, the Ottoman tide had turned at the Gates of Vienna and was about to recede, beginning its long withdrawal through the Balkans and Greece into Asia Minor over the next two centuries
Pasha Kara Mustafa was assassinated at the orders of the Sultan in Belgrade later that year, paying the ultimate price for his monumental failure. Jan Sobieski returned to Poland a hero. Austria gradually regained its lost territories.
More important than arms, manpower, tactics, supplies, and even courage, leadership is what makes the difference in any war. Jan III Sobieski’s quality of leadership was what turned the tide of battle. When Jan Sobieski led his men down that hill into the Ottoman flank, it was his presence at the front of the charge that demonstrated his dauntless nature and absolute determination. Bravery and headship cannot be faked, and men who recognize this kind of character in their leader will follow him into the jaws of Hell.
Tragically, in the 21st Century, the Muslims are INVADING Europe with the open arms of their criminally negligent and treasonous Globalist elites Political, Media, Academia and Clergy who have ‘welcomed’ the most virulent virus known to mankind called Quran to infest the body of Europe. Just like before 1683, Christian leaders in Europe today are totally unwilling to confront Muslims and Islam; once again allowing Muslims to win by default.
The USA in the meantime is being INFILTRATED by Muslims with the help again of their criminally negligent and treasonous Globalist elites Political, Media, Academia and Clergy who are deceiving Americans by telling them that Islam and Muslims pose no threat to them.
For those who still do not comprehend Islam and Muslims, let me once more put them in a Nutshell of very simple conclusions and challenge any reader to prove me wrong:

  1. No Muslim can be BOTH a Good Muslim and a Loyal citizen among non Muslims/ Kuffar/ Infidels
  2. Every single Sharia compliant Muslim is the Eternal and Mortal enemy of every non Muslim on Earth (80% of current Humanity)

Unless and until enough patriotic Europeans and Americans wake up to the existential threat posed by Muslims to Christianity in the immediate future, to first stop further invaders coming in and then reversing it, Europeans and Americans will end up forever suffering in humiliation and degradation under Islam’s Sharia.

America Returns to the Days of King George

It seems the American people have not learned from their history. Rather we have reverted to a state of servitude similar to the colonies in 1776. I wonder if, when those 56 men pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor in support of the Declaration of Independence, they ever conceived that not only would the American people return to a life of dependence, but that we would do so willingly…
