Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill guiou a Inglaterra contra o nazismo. Sabia muito bem, ao contrário de muitos dos seus actuais conterrâneos, a pobreza e os perigos que o islamismo pode gerar, para os seus seguidores e para os seus vizinhos. Agora para os seus hospedeiros. Até porque na I Guerra Mundial combateu os Turcos e na II Guerra Mundial, viu muitos muçulmanos porem-se ao lado de Hitler. Deixo aqui alguns pensamentos de Churchill na língua original, pois é importante manter a força das suas palavras.
"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia (rabies) 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 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. 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."
