Churchill wasn’t the only westerner to make comments about Islam that wouldn’t be considered PC today. The following people did as well: John Wesley, a founder of Methodism, Alexis de Tocqueville, and, last but not least, John Quincy Adams, our sixth President.
Adams’ quote on the subject is well worth reading but too long to quote here. However, de Tocquevulle said: “I studied the Quran a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction that by and large there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad. So far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world and, though less absurd that the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion more to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself.”
Churchill’s The River War and called police.
The passage from the book, written by the wartime Prime Minister and first published in 1899, focuses on Churchill’s observations about Islam while serving during the Anglo-Egyptian re-conquest of the Sudan.
Mr. Weston told his audience: ‘Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die 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.’
Isn’t it strange that people who lived in the 18th and 19th century have a better understanding of Islam’s basic tenets than many people alive today. Of course, political correctness and Islamophobia had yet to be invented by leftists and the Muslim Brotherhood respectively.
Senator Markey or is Malarkey, and his lone accomplice in the House has just introduced a one page bill that would add gasoline to the fire that is already raging in the dimocrat/regressive party to stifle free speech and have an unelected bureaucracy determine what is or isn’t hate speech and who has violated the new speech codes established by the “truth ministry”. When I first read “1984” many years ago, it was entertaining and I never considered that it was Huxley’s premonition of what we would become, just titled 30 years too early. Should have been “2014”, not “1984”.
Islam is a government/political system under the guise of religion. They just don’t belive in live and let live, they have no mercy and will kill anyone whose ideals do not align with theirs. Have you ever seen Islam send food to starving people, drill wells for the thirsty, provide medical care for the hurting? The infinitesimal tip of the iceberg in home brewed terrorisim showed up in Boston; when will we notice?
I do not think it is racist to defend yourself and your family against those who would horribly murder any and all ‘infidels’ in the name of following Allah. Their bloody and degenerate ‘religion’ will not change and neither will they. The only way to avoid death at their hands is to be the victor in the fight. It is not wrong to kill someone who is trying to kill you, your loved ones or other innocents. No, it is, in fact, honorable and heroic. Our God tells us to love our enemies but is is difficult to do so when your enemy is coming at you to behead you with his sword.
Islamic countries cannot provide clean drinking water or sewage systems, make no provisions for the handicapped, and leave 40 to 50 percent of their citizens illiterate, yet under Islamic legal definitions, non-Muslims are sub-human.
