Here is what Winston Churchill said about the Great Siege of Malta:

"Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few!"

HIStory has proven that the heroic French nation was founded to save the world from Islam . . . because France means FREE!

The island of Malta has a long an illustrious history, but the one event that overshadows them all was the fact that the Apostle Paul was shipwrecked on the island while on his way to Roma. Incredibly, Saint Paul's birthplace of Tarsus has been under Turkish control since the fall of Constantinople in June 1453.

Saint Paul's Bay in Malta where the
"Relief Force" landed after the siege.

Satan's battle to keep Saint Paul from reaching Roma was as intense as the Great Siege of Malta.

It is sheer LUNACY to believe that anyone but a Roman citizen like Saint Paul could have planted true Christianity in Roma.

Saint Paul healed many of the Maltese of various diseases, and firmly planted true Christianity on that island forever renowned by his presence.

and the serpent under his feet.

Saint Paul stayed 3 months on the island, and that was enough time to ground the intelligent Maltese in sound Christian doctrine. Amazingly, the ship that took Saint Paul on the final leg of his journey to Roma was named after the warrior twins Castor and Pollux:

 And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the island, whose figurehead was the twin gods Castor and Pollux (Acts 28:11).

Saint Paul's testimony before Caesar is missing from the Holy Bible, but we do have the name of the ship that completed the historic voyage. That siege was the beginning of the end of the Terrible Turkish attempt to make the Mediterranean a Turkish lake. The Terrible Turks were replaced by the Berserk British, who actually had a spy in Malta during the siege.

French Knight Jean de la Valette

The name Malta comes from the Greek word for "honey. There was certainly "honey in the Rock" when Saint Paul planted true Christianity on Malta.

During the 16th century, Jean de la Valette was a household name throughout Europe.

There is a very modest monument to the "Shield of Europe" in the Maltese capital of Valletta. The Hero deserves a monument like the Lincoln Memorial in the center of Paris . . . London . . . and Berlin!!

A very modest monument
to Jean de la Valette.

Malta was annexed to the British Empire in 1814, and remained a captive island until independence in 1964. An English knight named Sir Oliver Starkey served with the garrison. Ominously, that British secret agent was hunting with de Valette when the great hero died suddenly of a "stroke." Then all his pets died too....Sir Oliver was not sparing with his poison!!

The Terrible Turks intended to make a Tower of Skulls out of the Maltese defenders!

In 1529, Sultan Suleiman set out from Constantinople with an army of 1 million Terrible Turks to kill the Reformation in its cradle.

Sultan Suleiman I (1494–1566).
Sultan Suleiman I
Reigned from 1520 to 1566.

In 1529, Sultan Suleiman set out from Constantinople to strangle the Reformation in its cradle.

That attempted conquest of Germany was rained out!

In 1565, the Sultan placed Mustafa Pasha in charge of the largest armada that had sailed since the ancient world.

It consisted of 200 ships and over 40,000 Terrible Turks.


Mustafa Pasha

Mustafa Pasha was also accompanied by the Sultans 2 most trusted pirates and beheaders: Turgut Reis and Piali Pasha.

Turgut Reis
(1485–June 1565).

Turgut Reis "Dragut" was a Terrible Turk indeed.

In 1560, he captured the Djerba fortress in Tripoli, and beheaded 6,000 of the Spanish defenders. Then he made a huge tower of their skulls!!

Piali Pasha was a confederate of Dragut who helped him build the Tower of Skulls.


Piali Pasha

Prior to the great Siege of Malta, the Terrible Turks achieved a great victory over a fleet sent to Tripoli by King Philip II.

Djerba fortress in 1599.

In May 1560, the Battle of Djerba took place near the island of Djerba, in Tripoli.

It was an overwhelming victory for the Terrible Turks, with over 6,000 Spaniards killed, and they celebrated by making a tower of skulls of the victims.

They planned on doing the same on Malta.

"Dragut" and Piali were hoping to make
a similar tower of skulls on Malta.

The Tower of Skulls remained until 1848, when it was demolished and the bones were buried. After their victory at Djerba, Turgut and Piali sailed past Malta and they were very, very confident that another Tower of Skulls would soon adorn that island.

La de Valette was determined that his knights would not adorn the Turkish Tower of Skulls!

In May 1565, 200 ships arrived in Malta and they expected a very quick conquest of the island. On board were hundreds of fanatical mullahs who kept quoting the Koran, and reminding them that paradise awaited the terrorists if they were killed in battle.

Fort St. Elmo was supposed to fall in a week.

The Terrible Turkish fleet, comprising 200 ships, arrived in Malta on May 18.

They planned on taking the small fort of St. Elmo very quickly.

Gallant French knight Jean de Valette drew a line in the sea and dared the Terrible Turks to cross it.

On May 18, 1565, Fort St. Elmo was
surrounded by the Terrible Turkish fleet.

The fanaticism and blood lust of the Terrible Turks was roused to a fever pitch by the mullahs, who quoted the Koran to justify the slaughter:

When you meet the unbelievers in the battlefield strike off their heads, and, when you have laid them low, bind their captives firmly. Then grant them their freedom or take a ransom from them, until War shall lay down her burden (Sura 47:1).

Encouraged by knight de Valette, the defenders fought fiercely, and the fort held out for a whole month, with horrendous Turkish casualties.

The fighting was intense for the
entire 4 months of the siege.

Our knight hero was 71-years-old when he commanded the defense of the island.

Whenever he saw his knights wavering, he would rush into the breach and rally his men again.

Finally, after 4 months and horrendous casualties, the Terrible Turks realized that Allah had forsaken them, and they decided to withdraw.

De Valette was wounded in the
leg but continued to rally his men.

Knight de Valette also had to contend with a fifth column of "Jews" within the fort who tried to undermine morale and send critical defense information to the enemy outside the walls.

The bravery and skill manifested in defending the island was remarkable, but what was more remarkable was that no European leader offered any help whatsoever.

No European ruler offered to send any help to the besieged Island of Malta!

With the very fate of Europe hanging in the balance, not one leader offered any held to the besieged Catholic knights defending Christendom.

Pope Pius IV
(Pope from 1559 to Dec. 1565).

Pope Pius IV assured the brave defenders that he was offering masses and "prayers" for their success.

His boss, Jesuit general Francis Borgia, made sure that he stuck to pious platitudes and "prayers."

Geopolitics prevented the Vatican from offering direct help to the Terrible Turks because there were still millions of Frenchmen who hated Islam.

Francis Borgia (15101572).
Jesuit general from 1565 to 1572.

Charles was the eldest son of King Francis II (1544–1560), who suffered an untimely death in a jousting tournament. Charles was only 10-years-old at that time, so his mother Catherine became Regent, and de-facto ruler of the country. Traditionally, France was the defender of Europe against Islam, but Catherine de' Medici would have been delighted if Notre Dame was turned into a mosque.

King Charles IX (1550–1574).
King from 1561 to 1574.

King Charles IX was only 10-years-old when he came to the throne.

A complete puppet of his mother, he was the infamous St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre king.

The infamous Catherine de' Medici was the real ruler of the country, and she had an alliance with the Terrible Turks.

Catherine de' Medici
Catherine de' Medici (1519–1589).
ruler of France from '33 to '89.

Catherine considered King Philip II of Spain more of a threat than the Terrible Turks, so France had a military alliance with Sultan Suleiman.

King Philip II (1527
King from 1556 to 1598.


Incredibly, King Philip II offered no help, even though the heads of 6,000 Spanish Catholics were adorning the Tower of Skulls in Tripoli.

He was preserving his fleet for the "Invincible Armada" invasion of England in 1588.

Unlike Athena the goddess of war, Shake-speare was not shaking her spear at the Terrible Turks.


Elizabeth I (1533-1603).
Queen from 1558 to 1603.

Philip II was concerned about losing his fleet so that he would have enough ships for the "Invincible Armada" of 1588. Queen Elizabeth was "concerned" about the fate of the Maltese defenders, so she gave them a sop by sending a cargo of COURAGE beer!

Britannia and Turkey established diplomatic relations in 1583. Incredibly, a future British ambassador to Turkey, Lord Lyons, planned the assassination of President Lincoln from the British Embassy in Washington City.

The relief force arrived from Sicily when the siege was over!

The so-called "Great Relief" was waiting at Syracuse for the word from their commander, García Alvarez de Toledo y Osorio, to sail to the relief of the island, but it never came until the battle was over.

Don García Alvarez de Toledo

A relief force of 10,000 Spanish soldiers from Naples, plus 1,700 mercenaries from Lombardy, with scores of Maltese, Italians, Germans, and Knights of St. John waited at Syracuse.

Don García, under strict orders from Philip II, never sailed until the Terrible Turks began their retreat.

Finally the "Great Relief" landed at St. Paul's Bay on September 7.

Matteo Perez d'Aleccio.

On September 7, Don García landed about 8,000 men at St. Paul's Bay on the north end of the island. The so-called Grande Soccorso "Great Relief" positioned themselves on the ridge of San Paul tat-Targa, waiting for the retreating Turks. They attacked the retreating Turks, hoping to get some plunder for their troubles.

When Pope Pius IV and King Philip II received letters from Jean de la Valette about the great victory . . . they were physically sick....Their Terrible Turks had failed them and retreated to Constantinople, with the loss of at least 30,000 men.

Hajji John XXIII consummated the marriage with the Terrible Turks!

Official diplomatic relations between the Vatican and Turkey were established in 1868, but the liberation of the Papal States in 1870 ended that "special relationship."

It wasn't until 1934 that diplomatic relations were reestablished when Archbishop Angelo Roncalli was sent to Turkey as Apostolic Delegate.

the Golden Horn in Constantinople.


Angelo Roncalli was Apostolic Delegate to Turkey from 1934 to 1944.

During that time he became a Hajji or Koran-carrying Muslim.

He was close friends with top Nazi Franz von Papen.

Unlike WWI, when the Dardanelles were closed, both men worked diligently to keep them open.


Franz von Papen (1879
Nazi amb. to Turkey from '39 to '44.

Hitler was determined to annex Crimea to the Third Reich, so he gave the command of the Nazi army to his top "Jew," Erich von Manstein. The Nazis needed to resupply their troops via Gibraltar and the Dardanelles, so that vital waterway had to remain open.

Franz von Papen in 1914.

On July 30, 1914—before WWI even started—pugnacious Prussian Franz von Papen arrived in the U.S. as German military attaché.

By 1915, the war was a stalemate, so he masterminded the sinking of the Lusitania to drag the U.S. into the perpetual British war against Russia.

In 1933, Hitler "replaced" von Papen as Chancellor of Germany.

Franz von Papen was a father to the Führer.

At the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal, von Papen was found innocent of any "crimes against humanity" and he walked free. The prosecution never even suggested that he played any role in the Holohoax.

1956 was a pivotal year in world history as the Suez Canal Crisis began the Decline and Fall of the British Islamic Empire. Only 2 years later, imperious Pope Pius XII was given the poisoned communion cup by a femme fatale Sister Pascalina.

In October 1958, "La Popessa" gave imperious Pope Pius XII the poisoned chalice because there was no possibility that he would ever embrace Islam.

He was replaced by "smiling, friendly" Angelo Roncalli, who took the name John XXIII.

Concurrently, a Papal politician named John F. Kennedy was running for President of the United States.



Hajji John XXIII.
Pope from 1958 to 1963.

Hajji John XXIII opened Vatican Council II in 1962. Everything the Catholics believed for centuries was dumped overboard. Before the Council, Muslims were considered hell bound heathen, after the Council, Muslims . . . "Jews" . . . and even atheists . . . were all going to heaven!

Pope Paul IV and Sultan Cevdet Sunay
conferring in Constantinople, July 1967.

The ecumenical movement was all about consummating a marriage made in hell between Roman Catholicism and Islam.

Polish Pope John Paul II kissed the Koran at the Vatican.

In 1683, his noble countryman, King Jan III Sobieski, saved Europe again from the Terrible Turks.

Hajji Francis I was the chosen successor of Pope John Paul II. Before the conclave, "anonymous" distributed damning evidence of his complicity in the "Dirty War." "Anonymous" is just a synonym for the British Secret Service:

No one admitted to sending the email. The ambassador said he did not do it. So did the lawyer. So did the journalist. So did several high ranking officials of the Society of Jesus, the world's biggest and most powerful religious order. The dossier that dropped anonymously in the inbox of senior cardinals as they gathered at Rome was damning. Or so it was intended to be. Someone did not want Jorge Mario Bergoglio to be Pope. (Vallely, Pope Francis: Untying the Knots, p. 1).

Even though Margaret Thatcher was out of office since 1990, she was still hugely influential in governmental circles. They all remembered the Falklands War, and they were not about to have any Argentine—Muslim or not—as Pope.

Sultan Erdoğan I visited the Vatican to plan the location of new Towers of Skulls!

Nothing ever changes with the Vatican and Islam. The camel dung Koran still teaches Muslims to hate Christians with an unholy hatred:

Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal sternly with them. Hell shall be their home: an evil fate (Sura 9:73, 66:8).

As recently as February 5, 2018, the Sultan visited Hajji Francis I at the Vatican.

Sultan Erdoğan I and Hajji Francis I
at the Vatican, Feb. 2018.

While visiting the Vatican, the Sultan and Hajji Francis looked over the map of Europe to find suitable places to erect new Towers of Skulls!

Malta and Russia was uppermost on their minds.

Perhaps they reviewed maps of the United States too.


The Sultan and Hajji Francis
looking at a map.

The millions of Roman Catholics who perished by the Sword of Islam are turning in their graves right now.

During their tête-à-tête, the Hajji and Sultan
discussed the future status of Jerusalem..


The status of Jerusalem was also high on their agenda.

Jerusalem means nothing to true Christians because that city is called SODOM and EGYPT in the Holy Bible (Apocalypse 11:8).

The only holy place for Christians is Golgotha on the Mount of Olives.


A firm handshake for the Sultan.

Not once did the Jewish Messiah ever threaten anybody with beheading for not believing on him. Such a diabolical dogma originated in the bottomless pit (Apocalypse 9:11). If true Christians don't behead Islam with the Sword of the Spirit, they are going to end up in a Tower of Skulls. Saint Paul said:

And take the helmet of salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of Elohim (Ephesians 6:17).

Saint Paul's main message was the Resurrection of Christ from the dead:

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,  and that he was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that he was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep.  After that he was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all he was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time (I Corinthians 15:3-8).

That cardinal doctrine of the Resurrection of Christ is denied by the camel dung Koran!
