Churchill on Islam

How different the world would be today, if the free world had only Roosevelt to rely on during WWII.

We Americans like to think it was we who won WWII.  That's true, to a point; the Allies could not have won the war without America's entry into the war, but had England, under Churchill's leadership not stemmed the tide of Hitler's aggression in the first years, I believe Roosevelt would have allowed Hitler to conquer all of Europe.

Despite the erroneous, and dishonest historical imagery of FDR as a great President, he was a socialist of the worst kind and I believe, secretly admired  Joseph Stalin.

Winston Churchill saw the world with clarity and in 1899 said this of 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 sensualist 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 Muslims 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 ...."
