Churchill's warning of Mohammedanism - 1899

The Last Cavalry Charge - Omdurman

I give away my age by admitting to attending Winston Churchill's funeral as a 15 year old boy sailor. Hundreds of us were bussed into London in 1965 from H.M.S. Ganges to line the banks of the Thames as his funeral barge came up the river. To me then, he was of course a great hero.

Later in life, when I had learned a little more about the man and some of his rasher descisons made during the 2nd World War, some of my adoration for him left but never doubts about his courage.

I always remember one day reading about how, as a young officer he had taken part in the last Cavalry Charge with the 21st Lancers at Omdurman. Incredible bravery by him and the rest of the 21st.

So it was also interesting to read his opinions on the Cult of the Dead Paedophile which he wrote in 1899. These guys have been causing grief for a long, long time. It is about time the world stopped playing with them and put them back in their box where they belong. Well here is what Young Winston wrote back then.

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 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 civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.

There you go. Why our politicians have never learned the lessons of the past is quite beyond me. Believe me though, the British National Party has watched the mistakes made. Sooner or later they will be called on to pick up the pieces. Will you help them by joining the BNP?

A very appropriate analogy.

Hydrophobia is an old word for rabies.

Rabies is a virus that invades the brain of a normally docile animal and turns it into a raging killer.

The rabies virus, like Islam, is a parasite that has no other purpose but to cause death and suffering.

Mind viruses are sometimes known as 'memes'...

A damn fine book and it just shows how right that man was, far ahead of his time just like a certain Mr Powell with his rivers of blood speech...
