...And some people still do not see a reason to worry!
Winston Churchill 1899
"Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of
the religion paralyses the social
development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists
in the world."
This is amazing. Even more amazing is that this hasn't been published
long before now.
CHURCHILL ON ISLAM Unbelievable, but the speech below was written in
1899. (Check Wikipedia - The River War). The attached short speech from
Winston Churchill, was delivered by him in 1899 when he was a young
soldier and journalist. It probably sets out the current views of many,
but expresses in the wonderful Churchillian turn of phrase and use of
the English language, of which he was a past master. Sir Winston Churchill
was, without doubt, one of the greatest men of the late 19th and 20th
centuries. He was a brave young soldier, a brilliant journalist, an
extraordinary politician and statesman, a great war leader and British
to whom the Western world must be forever in his debt.
He was a prophet in his own time. He died on 24th January 1965, at the
grand old age of 90 and, after a lifetime of service to his country,
was accorded a State funeral.
HERE IS THE SPEECH:
"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!
Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia
in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.
The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly
systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity
of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
A degraded sensual-ism deprives this life of its grace and refinement,
the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law
every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either
as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction
of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among
Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of
the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.
No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund,
Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already
spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every
step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms
of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization
of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."
Sir Winston Churchill; (Source: The River War, first edition, Vol II,
pages 248-250 London).
Churchill saw it coming.
And remember which muslim took the bust of Churchill out of
the White House...
