A Note For the HBD and Game Vermin

Enemies and allies of the Ottomans.

For the HBDers and gamesters, who worship at the Altar of Asia, and also at the Altar of the Yarmulke, a bit of history.  Several times, the Ottomans tried to conquer Europe.  The attacks on Malta and Vienna are two examples of this.  What happened?

Young aristocrats from Spain, Portugal,England, France, Germany and Italyenthusiastically joined the Knights of St. John…The Knights of St. John were recognized as the toughest soldiers in Christendom.

The Defenders On the Christian side, there were less than 700 Knights of St. John, 400 Spanish soldiers, 800 Italian soldiers, 200 Greek and Sicilian soldiers, approximately 3,000 soldiers drawn from the Maltese population, and along with other civilians who were given weapons, a total force of less than 9,000 men Relief The morale of the defenders of Malta was lifted when 4 galleys from Sicily managed to evade the Turkish blockade and land a small relief force of 42 knights and 700 militia.

The defense force certainly seemed to have enriched with inferior swarthoids.  A well-researched historical fiction book chronicling the siege, and the heroism of the defenders is this.

And of course, it was Polish cavalry that saved Europe at Vienna.  Meds and Slavs, Slavs and Meds…oh the humanity!  Better it had been some nice Jews and Chinamen instead!

Well, what were the Jews and Chinese doing during that period?  Let’s see.

Still, Jewish culture flourished in many places. The early modern period for Jews under Ottoman rule was a period of remarkable political and cultural success.  Given that the Ottoman Empire was engaged in military conflict with Christians, Sephardic Jews in particular were regarded potential allies, diplomats, and spies.

The Ottoman Empire was home to many large and vibrant Jewish communities.  

…when the Christian king and queen Ferdinand and Isabella finally finished reconquering Spain from its Muslim rulers, one of the first things they did was to force all of the Jews in Spain to leave. Some of these Jews moved to the Netherlands, but most of them sailed to North Africa, to the Hafsids there, or across the Mediterranean to the Ottoman Empire, which welcomed the Jews enthusiastically.

During the Ottoman Empire, relations between the two regions continued, with the name for “Ottoman” in Chinese (“Rumi”) appearing several times in historical documents and Ottoman tributary delegations traveling to China, especially during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).

Sobieski Alert: Polls About Poles

Facts vs. Desi flim-flam.

Slavic OverlordWrong. healthy banter? ha! if you in fact did live in Poland (Im doubtful) my guess is Poles were too ashamed to tell you how much we hate Germans! Germans are worse than dogs! almost as bad as Jews! the fact you never heard this means you didn’t earn trust. WE DETEST GERMANS!

And remember the webmaster’s comment about the shared IP addresses.
Let’s take a look at what Poles actually think about Germans:

Polish people have started to see Germans as modern, hard-working and well-educated. We might assume that Germany has become an ideal example of a well-structured and functioning state in light of the turbulent transition from communism to democracy that Poland experienced. Thus German people represented everything what Polish people had to struggle for. Poles perceived Germans as being goal-oriented and well-ordered. German detailed, structured life has, however, become the subject of jokes in Poland; people might laugh about Germans’ inflexibility and inadaptability to uncertain and unforeseen situations. On the other hand, Polish people are less likely to attribute “warm” associations to Germans: for instance, only 34% of respondents believed that Germans were tolerant and 36% that they are kind toward others. There is evidence of greater Polish sympathy towards Germans than German sympathy toward Poles. According to the Polish CBOS (Center for Researching Public Opinion), 44% of the respondents stated that they were fond of Germans, placing them closely behind eternal Polish friends, the Americans, French and Czechs. Twenty three per cent of people said that they had an aversion to Germans. On the German part, the most-prevailing response, from 60% of Poles, was “neither sympathy, nor aversion” which illustrates an ambivalent attitude from Germans toward Polish people. Polish people remain much more interested in Germany than vice-versa.

So, something for the TOO folks to consider. A so-called “pro-Western nationalist” living in the UK (*), who is NOT of Polish ancestry, falsely takes on the identity of a Pole who asserts that Poles “DETEST GERMANS!” and consider Germans to be “worse than dogs.”  Actual opinion polls in Poland indicate more Poles have a positive, as compared to negative view, of Germans.
So, TOO: do you endorse this behavior?  If so, why?  What benefit does it bring?  If not, will you publicly denounce it?  Or do you think ignoring it will make it go away? (It won’t).

I guess all these “European Knights” (**) have to do is criticize Jews and it’s all alright (***)? 
*Vallone, Sen, or Sen and Vallone being the same is not important, as none of those permutations are of a Pole (living in Poland or abroad), and all are associated with Sen, directly or indirectly, in one way or another.
**Here are some real European Knights: the Poles who spearheaded the largest cavalry charge in history, saving Europe from the NEC Turks (so that the frausow Merkel can hand it over to them today).  By the way:

The Poles did not reap any long lasting benefits from their startling victory, indeed, quite the contrary. Even in the short term it was clear that the recipients of their largess, the Habsburgs, were decidedly ungrateful. 

Sound familiar?  Also, I wonder what Indian and Sikh shopkeepers were doing then?  Certainly not charging the Turkish lines, eh?

***The “movement’s” affirmative action program strikes again.
