The Real Reason Why Thomas Jefferson Had a Koran

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib of Michigan is the piece of garbage who told a crowd of George Soros backed Move supporters after she was sworn in, “When your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the motherf—er.” (Talking about President Trump)

Let’s set aside for this discussion the kind of person you’d have to be to talk to your son this way! What sewer did this woman crawl out of?

Tlaib won the election for Michigan’s 13th district (big part of Detroit and some suburbs)—setting her up to be one of the first Muslim woman elected to Congress. This is far-Left liberal John Conyers’ district—and NO ONE RAN AGAINST HER in General Election! Why not?

Swearing In

This woman was administered the oath of office on Thomas Jefferson’s Koran! What? Tlaib told the Detroit Free Press. “Muslims were there at the beginning … Some of our Founding Fathers knew more about Islam than some members of Congress now.”

Yeah, I’d say! But not for the reason this woman implies.

Keith Ellison, Democrat from Minnesota, took his oath on Thomas Jefferson’s copy of the Quran 2 years ago.

Here’s my video explaining the story behind the story.

The Real Story

Note: I gleaned much of this information from Thomas Jefferson’s Quran by the late Dr. Samuel Blumenfeld.

It can be found in other places, including Wallbuilders’ Founder David Barton, from whom I originally heard this information.

Jefferson bought his Quran in London. In preparing for war, he read it to find out about the religion of his ENEMY.

For centuries Muslim pirates had cruised the Mediterranean Sea, capturing ships and taking prisoners, forcing Christian nations to pay tribute for freedom of passage. Some Christian nations were willing to appease the Islamic enemy by signing treaties requiring them to pay a certain amount of tribute each year.

The pirates also raided coastline villages and took prisoners. Millions of Africans and thousands of Christian Europeans and Americans were enslaved by these raiders, who killed many non-Muslim older men and women and kidnapped young women and children to be sold as concubines. The boys were often mutilated to create eunuchs for use in harems and as servants.

Congressman Keith Ellison said he chose to use Jefferson’s Quran because it showed that “a visionary like Jefferson” believed that wisdom could be gleaned from many sources.  Oh, that’s rich, Congressman!

In 1786, Jefferson, then the American ambassador to France, and John Adams, then the American ambassador to Britain, met in London with the Muslim Tripolitan ambassador to Britain. American merchant ships had been captured by the Barbary pirates and their crews and passengers imprisoned. They could only by freed by the payment of large ransoms. The Americans wanted to negotiate a peace treaty.

During the meeting, Jefferson and Adams asked the ambassador why Muslims held such hostility toward America, a nation with which they had had no previous contacts.

Jefferson later reported what the ambassador had told them the reason was: “It was written in their Koran that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every Muslim who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to [P]aradise.”

Within days of his inauguration, Jefferson ordered four warships to sail to the Barbary Coast to blockade and attack any Barbary (Muslim) State that was at war with the United States.

In other words, Jefferson’s copy of the Quran helped him understand the nature and mentality of the Muslim enemy.

Because of this problem, Jefferson created a Navy.

The result was that the United States and the Christian nations of Europe were then able to keep the Muslims at bay for over a hundred years. The French even invaded Algeria and colonized it with Europeans. But in 1960, Charles de Gaulle undid it all — and now there are over five million Muslims in France.


Either piece of garbage Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, Congressman Keith Ellison, Barack Obama (yes, by upbringing, culture, and world view, Obama is Muslim) and other Muslims are either completely ignorant of history (doubtful), or they’re well aware of what is in the Quran, why Thomas Jefferson had one, and what motivates jihadists to kill.

I’d say it’s pretty obvious they’re spitting in our faces.

Why do we allow someone to lie to our face, and refuse to swear on a Bible? We’re a Christian nation, or we WERE. Now we’re a stupid country who doesn’t know its history.

If we don’t wake up fast, to understand that a coalition of extreme Muslims and Leftists are taking over America, our Republic will cease to exist, and it won’t take long.

I hope you’ll join me in defending it.
