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 infence of the religion paralyzes 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.
Sir Winston Churchill (The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages 248-50, London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899)
Islam is just pure evil
And, there will continue to be Islamic Terrorism around the world, until we accept the fact that Islam is evil.... and stop using qualifier terms like “radical Islam”, “extreme Islam”.
It’s time to get real....or it’s time to expire. I sure will do everything to not become a causality of this hateful cult
Oh, and yes, these women were brave. Remember, Islam is absolutely vile in its treatment of women
You're doing it wrong.
It must just be me because I keep seeing articles praising this woman for being so brave, but I just think she was an idiot. Two crazed Muslims dripping blood with meat cleavers in their hands that just went all jihad on a man in the streets and she thinks she is going to talk some sense into them? I’m sorry but from where I’m sitting that isn’t brave, its idiotic.
Are there no men left in Britain?
Please understand my postings on the matter are not meant to be any slight at the UK. Anyone who has been in the UK or is familiar with it knows that they have stellar military and law enforcement.
Islamic Terrorism and the way it is handled is a problem everywhere including the US
The US had a Muslim US Army Officer murder a dozen US troops and injure 3 dozen...all troops not armed per longstanding Army regulations. And we still refuse to call it an act of terror
No American should be slamming the British on how this was handled....the US has had its share of screwups.
What’s the word on the UK streets from your countrymen, scotsman? Everything we get is filtered through your media. Give me some sense of how the ordinary Brit is feeling and what is being said, if you please. What discussions are going on in the pubs?
no men around? all cowards looking for their mommies to protect them? disgusting
other bystanders watched in horror and police waited helplessly for armed officers to arrive,
I’m sure the bystanders and police could have picked up rocks or any other object and thrown them at the attackers.
Where the hell were the police?
There are no MEN in England.
They permit their youngest girls to be SOLD
outside Gatwick and elsewhere by Islam, and for Islam.
Was this really an Islamic Jihad? Or was it primarily the kind of thing one might see any given weekend on the south side of Chicago or in the roughest part of the Bronx?
Sure, Islam was given as the excuse but, perhaps, wasn’t the innate violence of the perpetrators more to blame?
I’m confused. What happened to the killers. Were they shot to death by police?
The point of this article was the bravery of two kind women comforting a dying man in the face of vicious killers. Meanwhile, you idiots are arguing a bunch of BS. Congratulations all of you. Well done.
Whatever people think about these two women risking themselves, I am glad there was someone there that tried to help and comfort him.
