Letter to Dr. James Currie (28 January 1786) Lipscomb & Bergh 18:ii. NOTE THE DATE: 28 JAN 1786 We took the liberty to make some enquiries concerning the ground of their pretensions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury, and observed that we considered all mankind as our friends who had done us no wrong, nor had given us any provocation. The Ambassador [of Tripoli] answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Muslim Man who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise. THE ABOVE WAS STATED IN 1786 NEED I SAY MORE? WE HAVE BEEN AT WAR WITH THESE BARBARIC ANIMALS FOR CENTURYS AS FAR AS THAT GOES YOU CAN TAKE IT ALL THE WAY BACK TO 732BC WHEN MOSES LED HIS PEOPLE TO THE PROMISED LAND AND WHAT TOOK PLACE THERE WHEN THEY TURNED THEIR BACKS ON GOD.
