Sir Winston S. Churchill -- the same man who would go on to lead the free world through its darkest hours during the second world war -- tells the tale of the Anglo-Egyptian reconquest of the Sudan. It isn't just an account of the battles and the politics; it's the story of the destiny of the people of the region: Churchill with his powerful insight tells the the war changed the fates of England, Egypt, and the Arabian peoples in northeast Africa.
Sir Winston Churchill (The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages 248-50 (London: Longmans, Green | 1899
"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[72 virgins, I'm assuming] 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 civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."
FANCY TALK FOR RETARDED RELIGION
Kinda sez it all - for the 21st Century hip hoppers it means Islam is some Stone Age Shxt!
This is worth re-reading periodically.
We need some leaders with vision and balls like this today.
It was only because of the film "Khartoum" that in the days following 9-11,
that I had a clue when the term "Madhi" came up in the press.
At first I thought, surely the film will get some broadcasts, but then
I came to my senses and remembered that we live in the era of PC censorship.
I understand the new DVD can be purchased for a little as $10.09 on
Cultural inferiority simply is. Islam societies are inferior to western societies because of the reasons Churchill so clearly summed up in the River War.
“Sure, he saw the cultural problems and dangers, but seeing them the western liberal governments froze out the resolutions that were needed and made the problems of today more fixed in stone.”
Consider the English truism, “The Arab is either at your throat or at your feet. Better he be at your feet.”
The Muslim understands clearly, and responds best to, power and vengeance.
Islam Delenda Est.
I know this is an old thread, but is **this** why Obama returned the Churchill bust to England? Because Churchill was opposed to Islamic tenets?
Yes an old thread worth viewing for those who haven’t seen it.
