Most Americans and Europeans have never heard of nor have any knowledge of one of the most important battles in the history of Europe between Muslims and Christians. Had this battle not been won by Christians, Europeans would have been speaking Arabic, converted to Islam or under the boots of Sharia.
As you are reading this article, Muslims are achieving VICTORY over Christianity without war by Muslims INVADING Europe (America is next) with the open arms of clueless and criminally negligent and treasonous European globalist elites who are deliberately and willfully deceiving hundreds of millions of Europeans (and Americans) regarding the existential threat to Western Civilization posed by Muslims and Islam.
The Battle of Tours (October 10, 732) is also known as the Battle of Poitiers. The battle was fought near the city of Tours in France, close to the border between the Frankish realm and independent Aquitaine. The battle pitted Frankish and Burgundian forces under Charles Pepin, later titled MARTEL, against an army of the Arabian Umayyad Caliphate led by ‘Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi, Governor-general of al-Andalus (Spain).
In Arabic, it is immortalized as : معركة بلاط الشهداء (ma‘arakat Bilâṭ al sh-Shuhadâ’) meaning The battle of The Court of Martyrs
I would like to point out to our readers, that even 1300 years ago, those Muhammadan Muslims who died while slaughtering, raping, murdering and plundering the Christian Spaniards and Gauls with wars of aggression, were called MARTYRS just as the current Muslim suicide bombers and other Muslm mass murderers of defenseless civilians are still called today.
The Arabian Umayyad Caliphate, at the time of the Battle of Tours, was perhaps the world’s foremost military power. Great expansion of the Caliphate occurred under the reign of the Umayyads. Arab Muslim armies pushed across North Africa and Persia through the late 600s.
Forces led by Tariq ibn-Ziyad crossed Gibraltar (with the help of treasonous Christians) and established Muslim power in the Iberian/ Spanish peninsula which subsequently crossed into southern France with the intention of expanding as far into Europe as their victories permitted. Other armies of the conquering Arabian hordes established power as far away as Sind, in what is now the modern state of Pakistan.
The Arab Muslim empire under the Umayyad Arabs was now a vast domain that ruled, colonized and subjugated a diverse array of tens of millions of peoples on three continents: Christians, Zoroasterians (Iranians), Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and others.
It had destroyed what were the two formerly super military powers: the Sassanid Persian Empire, which it absorbed completely, and the Byzantine Christian Empire, most of which it had absorbed, including Armenia, Syria, Judea/ Palestina, Egypt and North Africa.
The Frankish realm under Charles Pepin was the foremost military power in Western Europe. It consisted of what is today most of France, most of Western Germany and the low-countries. The Frankish realm had begun to progress towards forming the first real imperial power in Western Europe since the fall of Rome.
On his march through the southern districts of France in the land of the Franks, Abd-er-Rahman utterly destroyed many towns and villages, killed and enslaved a great number of the people, and seized all the booty and property that he could carry off.
He plundered the city of Bordeaux and, it is said, that he obtained so many valuable things that every soldier “was loaded with golden vases and cups and emeralds and other precious stones.”
Up to this point, the Carolingian Empire, ruled by King Charles, had no need to oppose the Arabs since they had not invaded any of his territories. The area of the Arabs plunder had been Aquitaine, an independent kingdom in southwestern France ruled by King Eude.
Having learned of the damage being done to his neighboring kingdom, Charles becomes convinced of the danger presented to his territories. If Aquitaine were to be defeated, his kingdom would surely be next. Charles begins to march an army towards the Muslim invaders to confront them on his own terms.
‘Abd-al-Raḥmân trusted the tactical superiority of his cavalry, and had them charge the Franks repeatedly. This time, the faith the Umayyads had in their cavalry, armed with their long lances and swords, which had brought them so many victories in previous battles, was not justified.
In one of the rare instances where medieval infantry stood up against cavalry charges, the disciplined Frankish soldiers withstood the assaults, though according to some Arab sources, the Arab cavalry was able to break several times into the interior of the Frankish square.
“The Muhammadan horsemen dashed fearlessly and frequently against the battalions of the Franks, who resisted heroically, and many fell dead on both sides.”
Despite these determined assaults, the Frankish wall did not give in. It appears that the years of year-round training that Charles had instilled in his men, paid off brilliantly.
In fact, his hard-trained soldiery accomplished what was not thought possible at that time: that infantry could withstand the determined onslaught of cavalry. For the first time, this was exactly what happened as the Frankish INFANTRY withstood the repeated assaults of the Umayyad heavy CAVALRY.
Charles had created an army of professional infantrymen which was both highly disciplined and well-motivated “having campaigned with him all over Europe”.
They were buttressed by levies that Charles basically used to raid and disrupt his enemy lines, and gather food for his infantry.
The Mozarabic Chronicle of 754 says: “And in the shock of the battle the men of the North seemed like a sea that cannot be moved. Firmly they stood, one close to another, forming as it were a bulwark of ice; and with great blows of their swords, they hewed down the Arabs. Drawn up in a band around their chief, the people of the Franks carried all before them. Their tireless hands drove their swords down to the breasts of the foe”.
Those Umayyad troops who had broken into the square had tried to kill Charles, but his bodyguards who surrounded him would not be broken. The battle was still in flux when Frankish histories claim, that a rumor went through the Umayyad army that Frankish scouts threatened the enormous booty and sex slaves that the Muslims had plundered from Bordeaux.
Some of the Umayyad horsemen, without permission from their officers, at once broke off the battle and returned to camp to secure their loot. According to Muslim accounts of the battle, in the midst of the fighting, scouts from the Franks sent by Charles began to raid the camp and supply train (including slaves and other plunder).
Charles presumably had sent scouts to infiltrate and cause chaos in the Umayyad base camp, and free as many of the slaves as possible, hoping to draw off part of his foe. This tactic, succeeded way beyond his wildest expectations, as many of the Umayyad cavalry, unilaterally broke ranks and returned to their camp. To the rest of the Muslim army, this appeared to be like a retreat, but soon it became an undisciplined route.
Both Western and Muslim records agree, that while trying to stop the debacle, ‘Abd-al-Raḥmân became surrounded and was cut down and the Arabian troops then withdrew altogether to their camp. “All the host fled before the enemy”, candidly wrote one Arabic source, “and many died in the flight”.
The Franks resumed their phalanx, and rested in place throughout the night, believing the battle would resume at dawn the following morning.
When the Arab forces did not renew the battle the next day, the Franks feared an ambush. Charles at first believed that the Arab forces were trying to lure him down the hill and into the open. This tactic he knew, he had to resist at all costs. He had in fact disciplined his troops for years, that under no circumstances whatsoever, would they break formation and come out into the open.
Only after extensive reconnaissance of the Umayyad camp by Frankish soldiers was it discovered that the Muhammadans had escaped by stealth during the night.
Both historical accounts assert, that the Arabs had so hastily abandoned their camp, that even the tents were abandoned, as the Umayyad forces headed back to Iberia/ Spain with whatever loot remained that they could carry.
The Franks were victorious, ‘Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi was killed, and Charles subsequently extended his authority in the south.
Ninth-century chroniclers, who interpreted the outcome of the battle as divine judgment in his favour, gave Charles the nickname Martellus (“The Hammer”), recalling the title heaped upon Judas Maccabeus (“The Hammerer”) of the Jewish Maccabean revolt against the Seleucid Greek Empire.
Exact details of the battle, including its exact location and the number of combatants, cannot be determined from the accounts that have survived. Only one thing remains certain:
The Frankish troops won the battle without cavalry.
History is peppered with SINGULAR battles, the outcome of which did actually change the course of human history such as those of: Marathon and Arbela.
Without a shadow of a doubt, the battle that was won by Charles Martell at Tours was SEMINAL since it SAVED the whole of Christian Europe from becoming Islamized and thus actually preserving Christianity.
Muhammadan Islam at this moment of history and in the foreseeable future, is in the process of re-conquering Christian Europe (and the USA) without WAR unless the European peoples (and Americans) wake up to their nightmare in time to stop and then reverse this invasion.
The Muslims are slowly but most assuredly, conquering Europe (America is next) demographically from within:
Through immigration and a much higher birth rate.

Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

If we had looked closely in those intervening years, we could have seen the clues of their demise. Many in my field (CE/CI) did, but the world had changed. Politicians facing the prospective loss of political control through fear-mongering of something ⏤ Russia then and China now ⏤ limited any real responses that could have achieved a safe world with Russia in it…

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil.

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…

The SCOTUS leak was explicitly designed to tip the balance back to Progressivisms demands and rally the Democrat base to intimidate conservatives, political and business leaders by threats of violence because the country is in a Biden mess, one he created in January 2021 to reflect his party’s image as one that clings to the failed philosophy of Marx and Engles…
