Of Prime Ministers, Presidents, and Muslims

December 14, 2015

Once again, radical Muslims have struck at the heartland of a nation, killing and maiming innocent civilians in the name of Allah and Jihad. But this time it was a Social Services center in America, a country once known for standing up and facing international terror, and for refusing to succumb to anarchy – a nation long recognized for decades as the leader against religious and political insurrection across the world.

Not any more…

We have a president who has sought every opportunity to ignore the “holy war” that is rending this planet, a man who fabricates every excuse possible to pretend there is no jihad. And when that doesn’t work, his indignity rises towards those who could be so prejudiced regarding “peaceful” religions such as Islam. In the end, if nothing else works, our president just ignores the violent Muslim uprisings, the beheadings, the invasions, and the encroaching, hysterical Muslim dominance in cities and countries across this planet, as simply the imagination of the bias.

There has been a great deal of commentary written on Islam throughout the centuries. But now, as Islam becomes more globally violent and dominant, there seems to be, oddly enough, a suppression of its negative characteristics. In Europe, those who speak out against it have a tendency towards short life spans, or violent accidents. We haven’t reached that point in America yet, but we will – if we don’t change our attitudes, and soon find a new Commander in Chief.

Perhaps one of the most definitive dissertations on Islam was written by a man who spent a good deal of time in the Middle East, and an equal amount of time studying and fighting political and religious entities. Sir Winston Churchill was, without doubt, one of the greatest men of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He was a courageous soldier, an extraordinary statesman, and ultimately the British Prime Minister. He understood the nature of rancorous ideologies firsthand, and he was, in part, responsible for the survival of the Western world. The following is a speech he wrote after years in the Middle East.

"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 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."

Churchill saw Islam coming. He understood it, and sought to deny its expansion.

Our president understands it – and embraces it.

Recently we had two radicalized Muslims walk into a social services center in San Bernardino and kill or wound 35 people. They were later killed in a furious gun battle with police, who found 12 pipe bombs and tools to make more explosives in the suspects' home.

The smoke had barely cleared the air, or the blood washed from the floor of the service center, and our president was claiming that we mustn’t get ahead of ourselves here – that it was very possibly a case of workplace violence (exactly the same thing he said when Major Nidal Hasan killed or wounded 45 soldiers in Fort Hood, Texas). Then adding insult to injury, his hand-picked, pro-Muslim Attorney General Loretta Lynch, follows with a statement pledging to “take aggressive action against anyone who uses anti-Muslim rhetoric that ‘edges toward violence.’”

What has happened to America? Have we lost our common sense, our intellect, or our will to survive?
