Winston Churchill

Just a couple of good Winston Churchill quotes (hat tip: Islamophobic):
Freedom of Speech:
"Everyone is in favour of free speech," remarked Churchill. "Hardly a day passes without its being extolled. But some people's idea of it is that they are free to say what they like - but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage."
"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. 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. 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 proselytising 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."

Hope you Christmas was bright, Eyes!
Ours was quiet after the stormfront passed. It was a little exciting for about an hour!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Top of the morning to you tmw! Glad to hear you made it through the tornados A-OK. It can be quite frightening...

Churchill may as well have been Nostradamus in regard to Mohammadins and their expansion throught the world.

Truly frightening. Does anyone doubt that we are on a threshold just as Churchill's time was?

Eyes said...

Sure looks like it... It's some sort of a turning point.

Churchhill "got it" about Islam!

Oh, for a leader today like Winston Churchhill!
