Hmmm... let's start with the Saxons,
and not forget when they got their groove on.
If it wasn't for the seax, and the -ons,
we wouldn't be friends but talking like the Ottomans, mon.
by Martin Braun
Note: The seax is a long knife, thus a group of people were called Saxons.
Long in the day, the Saxons cross over and dominated 80% of the England portion of the U.K., then combined forces to run out the invading Vikings. Needless to say, the Saxons also drove off the Romans at the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest, thanks to Arminius. And with a coalition of competing empires and the Holy Roman Empire which included Saxony, drove off the Ottoman Empire in the Battle of Vienna. The 90,000 to 300,000 battle in Vienna was certain to fall to the Jihad, but God favored Europe and the world, and the Ottomans were defeated.
