Winston Churchill om Islam


Av Jørgen Høgetveit, i – 23.06.17


Den vestlige sivilisasjons redningsmann ble han kalt etter krigen. Etter alt jeg har lest om han var det interesseresant å se hva han mente om Islam. Under kan du lese hans ord om saken - hentet fra internett. En ser at Hege Storhaug også siterer dette i sin bok "Islam den 11. landeplage."

"Winston Churchill’s Brutal Takedown of Islam Means More Today than Ever." Av Jason W. Stevens

Og hans siste setninger er verdt å merke seg: "- the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."

"The British Prime Minister and winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature never held anything back when it came to condemning Islam’s frequent recurrence to brutality and slaughter. You might be familiar with Churchill’s famous line, “Islam is as dangerous in a man as rabies in a dog.” The quote is somewhat inaccurate, but summarizes the sentiment well enough.
It comes from Churchill’s unabridged The River War:
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. 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. 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."
