Our Flemish correspondent VH just wrote us with this little tidbit:
When Lord Ahmed recently threatened to advance to Westminster with 10,000 Muslims, the number was not “just” a number. In fact he referred to the advance of Mohammed in 630 to Mecca with 10,000 followers, and with whom he conquered that stubborn city once and for all.
And what’s more, this encouraged them to conquer the rest Arabian Peninsula and beyond as well.
