Sir Churchill

Sir Winston Churchill on Islam

Quotes from an 1899 book by Winston Churchill in which he describes Moslems [Muslims] based in part on first-hand observations during Kitchener’s campaign in the Sudan:

“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 sensualism 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 men.”

Churchill

“Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; 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. 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 civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.”

(The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages 248-50) London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899

    1. Dear Lance,
      I like your blog, I don’t agree on your judgement of Jimmy Carter, your worst President has just been out of office; but this is not the reason I write this comment.

      Please turn the US flag into it’s right position. Distressed or not and I am not even an american. I know you are very passionate about this issue.

      My Point as a soldier; an upside flag is an insult to the flag and the ideal it stands for. The US flag is your Nation and represents your and your nations value. The administration is sub-servant to the Nation.

      So no matter the reason please don’t do that! Turn the flag right! Don’t lower your level to the simple mind of a fanatic, your blog shows a MUCH higher understanding and intellect.

  2. Interesting quotes from Churchill…especially the bit about Christianity residing the arms of science, against which it previously struggled. Perhaps some day, following clear and non PC vision concerning the horrors of the jihadi facet of fundamentalist Islam, an Islam with an objective, non homocidal and suicidal basis can be the only remaining version of this creed.

    Until then, we cannot take our eyes off the ball…the west cannot allow itself to be subsumed by homicidal, sexist, slave creating tribal fanatics following the worlds only founder of a major religion who sold slaves and ordered the slaughter of thousands in the founding of his ‘religion of peace’.

    Your blog and it’s take no prisoners attitude is a key attribute in this struggle which we must keep the motivation to pursue, because our enemies have kept a singular motivation for 1400 years or more, and to defeat them we must do no less.

    Great blog…(by the way Miss Muslim Manners link is dead, it sounded like good stuff but the link doesn’t work.)

  3. When an American flag is put into that position, 1960s protests not withstanding, its real purpose is to signify a state of distress and that assistance is needed.

    Lance feels it a patriotic duty to fly the flag as such given the current administration.

  4. Ralph,

    I’m an American veteran. This is not a flag on our blog. It’s a graphic of a flag. It is not a disgrace to the flag anyway. LoB is correct. It’s a US military distress signal.

    For instance, if my area of operation (AO) command post (CP) was overrun by enemy forces, then we’d fly the flag upside down to signal our state of distress and alert aircraft and/or artillery to bomb the living shit out of the place. It’s a “gooks in the wire” thing. Get your facts straight, babeeee.

    Further, if you take a picture of a flag then toss it into a stack of pics and it ends up upside down, would this be a disgrace to old glory? Nope. And neither is mine.

    The flag stays like it is until the criminals occupying the white house vacate the premises. Period.

  5. Interesting to see how the level of your hatred, that, that you will deny to be so, is as inflamed as those you like to berate. Although there has obviously been events that give rise to dislike and mistrust of foreigners, having the attitude that “the USA can do what it wants when it wants because we are the greatest nation on earth and if you don’t like it you can kiss my ass”, is hardly designed to solve the situation. Surely you must agree that no country is innocent of wrong doing on the world stage, whether it be political or military. And just saying “F*ck You!” every time some one points it out is just awful. Whichever country is doing it.
    Still you obviously know best!

  6. I am shocked that Barrack Osama is still alive! I had bet that he wouldn’t last 6 months. I guess our American neighbors have lost their zeal for assassinations. Where,s there a John Wilkes Booth when you need him? We have a Conservative government up here, but they are handcuffed by the commies and liberals in opposition. Hopefully we will smarten up by the next election and give the Conservatives a huge majority. Then our pathetic immigration laws?(joke) will be toughened up. BTW, keep that murdering little bastard, Khadre in Quantico until he dies. We don’t want the little muslim cocksucker up here.

    1. Tough as it is to take…we don’t actually want this guy dead, YET. It would be a far, FAR better thing to have him live long enough to be exposed for the ungodly traitor that he is. Once he’s out of office, and his minions have been booted from the gov’t, THEN you can shoot him—after the appropriate process of law has been at least superficially observed. (I know…Lance is gonna think I’ve lost my damn mind, but trust me, this is actually a better way.)

      But if he dies as a sitting president, he’ll be a bigger martyr than MLK or Malcolm X…and that we REALLY don’t want, because if that comes to pass, the real truth will become completely obliterated by the media hysteria. I’m sure you saw how bad it was when Michael Jackson died; imagine that same level of hype, increased by an exponential factor of 100. (No, that wasn’t a mistype.)

      1. And I’ve made a small error…that first line should read “…dead, YET.”

    2. Obama is not the problem, he is merely a painful symptom of what is wrong with our precious country. The problem is the progressivism which began devouring our country in 1913. We WILL be taking our country back, hopefully without violence, but one way or the other.

      1. I prefer violence because it serves three purposes:

        1. You can humiliate them all.
        2. They’re all cowards and will soil their French panties as they run.
        3. There’s no feeling in the world like being one of Uncle Sam’s Jolly Green Giants and stackin ’em high.

  7. ralph k has the mentality of a very small dog.
    if he bothered to objectively study events during the carter/brzezinski regime, he’d clearly see the cause and effect of carter’s ass kissing to a rapidly expanding soviet empire(a continuation no less of stalinist policies) plus the classic leftist trait of abandoning allies like the shah who knew how to best deal with implacable enemies like islamofascist terrorists.
    This world wide resurgence of historic islamic jihad began directly from brzezinski’s plan; fool americans into believing that islamists would do all the struggling for us in containing the soviet “borg” while carter unilaterally disarmed.
    All we had to do was stand firmly against soviet trickery and firmly but gently push the shah into practical institutional reforms while still keeping a whip on the islamists.
    few democrats can stomach the reality of muslim majorities where secular egalitarianism cannot survive without strong intervention by an army like kamel attiturk’s or a tough police force like the shah’s.
    reagan (the only president NOT a member of the trilateral commision,btw)saw the necessity of confronting both communism and islam, although it was too late to undo carter’s damage to the middle east. whatever money carter saved from disarmament needed to be reversed in spades to outrun soviet arms escalation into bankruptcy thus ending the cold war.
    but later, g.w.bush obviously didn’t help matters , since he failed to directly attack societies which are at war with our civilisation. he and obama waste billions trying to bribe pakistan instead of helping india to flatten it and we still don’t see the west embargoing all muslim oil imports, starting with saudi arabia.
    deny them our business ,let their shitcrazy muslim mobs complete their takeover and let them all meet us in the battle field to settle this where the crusades failed.
    i’m no christian.so i say death to our enemies as they seek our destruction and to hell with the apologist traitors living amongst us as parasites.
