It’s over a thousand years since Charles Martel understood what he was up against and did what had to be done. It has happened again.
In 732 A.C.E., the Umayyad Islamic Terror Caliphate in occupied Spain, or what was then al-Andulus, invaded the Duchy of Aquitane or what is now south-western France, and ransacked the French city Bordeaux. Seeing the grave threat of the ravaging Islamic forces to Christianity and his Frankish Kingdom, Charles Martel marshaled his forces, and defeated the radical Islamic general Abdul Rahman Al Gahafiqi in the battle of Tours-Poitiers (a little east of Normandy).
In 732, in the face of massive Islamic victories, Martel’s Christian victory gave hope to the Christians and they renamed him Charles “The Hammer” Martel. (For an excellent video of the Tours Battle see Tours Battle Video here.) Martel’s victory steeled the arc of Christian Europeans, and enabled them to defeat the rampaging radical Islamic terrorists of that day.
Today in 2017, US President Donald J. Trump sees the same existential threat of radical Islamic terror to the United States and the Free World. And, we must all support him, and pray for his absolute success: Failure is not an option.
