  • What Winston Churchill said about Islam

    https://conservativetribune.com/what...ibertyalliance

    Judging by Hollywood, Winston Churchill has rarely been more respected than he is in 2018.

    Not one, but two movies based on a pivotal moment in Churchill’s World War II leadership were up for best picture at the Oscars, and Englishman Gary Oldman won the Oscar for best actor for portraying the British prime minister in “Darkest Hour.”

    But this is what Chruchill said about Islam:

    “Indeed it is evident that Christianity, however degraded and distorted by cruelty and intolerance, must always exert a modifying influence on men’s passions, and protect them from the more violent forms of fanatical fever, as we are protected from smallpox by vaccination. But the Mahommedan religion increases, instead of lessening, the fury of intolerance. It was originally propagated by the sword, and ever since its votaries have been subject, above the people of all other creeds, to this form of madness. In a moment the fruits of patient toil, the prospects of material prosperity, the fear of death itself, are flung aside. The more emotional Pathans are powerless to resist. All rational considerations are forgotten. Seizing their weapons, they become Ghazis—as danger*ous and as sensible as mad dogs: fit only to be treated as such …”

    Even President Donald Trump would blush at that “mad dogs” business. And how do you think it would go over in today’s multi-culti London, with its disturbing Muslim mayor?

    Or how about this, from Churchill’s 1899 “The River War,” via Goodreads.com:

    “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 paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.”

      And this, from the same source. It’s an implicit warning about Muslim immigration that would infuriate liberals in the U.K. and their counterparts in the United States.

      “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.”

        And this quote, from “The Story of the Malakand Field Force” describes a situation more than a century old – one that goes back to the very beginnings of Islam, actually. But it’s grimly prophetic about the current day.

        Churchill describes one religion as being that of “blood and war.” Another being a “religion of peace.” Guess which ones he was talking about.


        “Thus whole nations are roused to arms. Thus the Turks repel their enemies, the Arabs of the Soudan break the British squares, and the rising on the Indian frontier spreads far and wide. In each case civilisation is confronted with militant Mahommedanism. The forces of progress clash with those of reaction. The religion of blood and war is face to face with that of peace. Luckily the religion of peace is usually the better armed.”

          Churchill was a man who studied history and also had a lot of experience with Muslims in his career. He does not speak from ignorance or prejudice, but out of experience.

            I am pleased that you do not include Winston Churchill in the category of all men are liars because I too think his insights into Islam are accurate. From my perspective, Islam is evil's substitute religion for Christianity for the purpose of deceiving people to believe in Allah rather than YHWH.

            During the period between WWI and WWII Churchill was rejected as prime minister.
            With the on set of WWII he was again in favor.
            After WWII he again fell out of favor.

            Whatever ones position on Winston Churchill, his leadership in WWII was indispensable.

            During Harry Truman's presidency, Winston Churchill came several times to the USA just to drink hard liqueur and play poker with Harry Truman on the Presidential railroad car.

            Is this information relevant to history or to Christianity?

              Well, surprise, something we agree on !

              This information is relevant to history and to Christianity.

              No matter how men fail in the leading on the nations as almost all did leading up to WW2; God is in control and put his man into power with Churchill. Without Churchill England would have been lost. Without England Hitler would not have been stopped.

              Roosevelt was fooled by Stalin and called him uncle Joe. Churchill was not fooled and wrote that his blood ran cold when talking to Stalin during Malta. God also gave the US General George Patton. Patton knew tanks would control the next war and tried to get the US to design and build new tanks. Ike was a politician and worked against Patton and won the day. So we were caught without a modern tank when WW2 started. So who did Roosevelt put in charge, Patton ? - no Ike. Our men had to fight with stop gap tanks like the Grant and Sherman

              But God kept Patton in our army and Patton saved our bacon more than once; in Africa and then Europe. Yet Ike came out of the war the hero.

              The lesson here is this: Although politicians, like Hitler, Stalin, and Roosevelt, ran the world; God saved the free world with men like Churchill and Patton and many others. No matter how hopeless the situation appears God is on the throne.

              The nation was being fooled by a crooked politician like Hillary, and every one said she would win. I knew if she did win it might be the end of our Republic. I took the matter into prayer and The Lord told me very clearly, with no doubt, that Hillary would not win and Trump would be elected. So I know God still has His hand on our nation even though it looks far different.

              God has a small private army in this nation that few know about. They are not in places of political power. But they are in communion with God.
