With the third and final presidential debate mercifully finished and up for endless media coverage, the invasion of Germany and Europe by an overwhelming army of Muslims continues.  It’s impossible to know how many Americans understand that the same invasion is inexorably underway here in the USA, albeit not so immediately and profoundly noticeable within our much larger expanse of land.  Germany has changed drastically within just one year since Angela Merkel threw open the gates of Europe to the World of Islam.

I just finished reading a novel, Time of Parting,  by Bulgarian writer Anton Donchev.  Originally in the Bulgarian language (translated to English by Marguerite Alexieva), it is set in the year 1688.  The story is based on the historically factual forced conversion of Christians in the Elindenya Valley to Islam.

The book was made into a four and one-half hour long movie, which premiered at Cannes in 1988.  The title was changed to Time of Violence.  You can watch that movie in three one and one-half hour segments on this website by clicking here.  The movie follows the novel’s plot with great accuracy.  Be warned:  It is equally violent – and true to history.

The destruction of Elindenya was accomplished by sending in a detachment of Ottoman Turk Jannisaries, soldiers who had been forcibly removed from their Christian homes as small children, converted to Islam, and thereafter raised with terrible cruelty – to harden them into jihadis.

The violence and atrocities inflicted on the Bulgarian people by the Turks in accomplishing the mission is very disturbing.  This is not a book or a story for the faint of heart.  It is historically accurate.

Mark my words.  Without some miraculously major change in our political leadership and foreign policy, what happened to the people of the Elindenya Valley in 1688 will eventually happen here – to our children and to our grandchildren.

Thanks to Europe News for the video.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
