Winston Churchill on Islam

Winston Churchill certainly is a man with many strong opinions and this is a passage that I found with his opinion on Islam.

It’s clear and observational without being dressed in the normal lies about how the violence and injusticies of Islam somehow is the result of the West’s actions.

Islam is suffering from the consequences of its own actions, and this backwards dogmatic religion is something that is gradually being forced upon the West because of the foolish goodwill of some politicians who want our society to embrace multiculturalism.

Having read the Quran myself, I can safely say that the overwhelming majority of politicians and journalists have not, which has turned them into useful idiots for Islamic organisations, as they openly speak about mutual tolerance between Islam and the rest of the world, although it’s evident that it’s completely onesided. As Mark Stayn said: “You can’t be multicultural in Saudi Arabia”, and that goes for the rest of the Islamic world. What the life is for non-Muslims is more like a sidelined co-existence.

Well, now over to Churchill and what he said about Islam:

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.

Individual Moslems 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 civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.
