I have often asked the question, "Why did we not hear of these people (Muslims) who threaten and want to kill us (so-called infidels) back in the 1950's or 1960's? After first seeing what they did to our marines when Jimmy Carter tried to rescue the Iran hostages and dragging their bodies thru the streets and the "goulash" display of hanging them from bridges as Jimmy stated, I had thought to myself then whew, what a bunch! Now this day and time we know what kind of barbarians these people can be, video taping someone's head being severed by sword, and announcing their intent to kill all American men, women and children. From what I am gathering the thought process has always been there that the Islamic world has always wanted to kill us. Why were they not known of before, for instance in the 1950's? Some have said the Government knew back then what kind of threat to America these people were and it was kept at high level. Men serving overseas in the Armed Forces back in those days have told me they were warned to not go out into those locales alone because of the threat to Americans. Some have said with today's media and technology it has been a way for them to express this intent knowing it will get them exposure as in the recent uproar in the Islamic world over the Pope's remarks about their evil leader etc..... What say ye? Did we know of this people back then in the 1950's? Has oil made them more brazen and they are now showing their true colors or have this people always maintained this thought pattern to kill innocent men, women and children?
