Stop Telling Us We Cannot Pay the Price

There is a multi-front assault against the Israeli operation Defensive Shield predominantly by the administration of United States President Barack Obama which is being fully supported by the European Union and the majority of European governments and the United Nations with a large supportive roll being gleefully executed by United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay and her organization, sent to occupy the front lines and press Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and the Israeli government to make the concessions demanded by Hamas just so the Israeli military actions in Gaza can be brought to an end and peace and quiet be restored to the areas and residents of Gaza. There are no demands for Hamas in Gaza to stop their attempts to infiltrate Israel through their remaining tunnels yet to be located and destroyed in order to execute mass assault of the Israeli communities the tunnels are designed to reach and attempt to kill large numbers and abduct others to hold as they did with IDF soldier Gilad Shalit pressing to trade them for the release of terrorists from Israeli prisons. These efforts are being further supported by the world’s mainstream media new sources which have stressed the numbers of Gazan casualties intimating that virtually every Gazan casualty was an innocent civilian noncombatant while stressing each and every IDF casualty interviewing those close to the soldier and others until they have sufficient Israelis they can quote claiming that Israel must cease all military actions as they have no hope to accomplish anything further and any additional casualties will all be in vain. Then there is the economic assault being perpetrated by the United States Federal Aviation Administration, a government agency which controls the entirety of the United States air carriers’ fleets, who suspended all American flights into Israel and Ben Gurion International Airport which was copied by the European airlines. Such a suspension will do far more than prevent tourism or travel plans by business people into or out of Israel by restricting the numbers of flights available because these actions has resulted in grossly restricting available flights. This ban also prevents any commercial shipments using United States or European air carriers such as Fed Ex, UPS, DHL and numerous other air freight carriers which will completely stifle and smother access to international trade by Israeli companies. Yet, almost within hours of the FAA ban on air travel into or out of Israel, Secretary of State John Kerry flew straight from Cairo into Ben Gurion International Airport in complete defiance of his own government’s ban, imagine that. Just to add to the dangerous activity engaged by Secretary of State John Kerry, he flew in on a standard executive version of a Boeing 757 airliner, not a military aircraft with defensive capabilities not found on standard airliners; it was just a nicely appointed 757 with really nice seats, and office, a bedroom and other niceties but no additional military capabilities.

 

The International press is also pressing every single defeatist quote they can find in their numerous interviews even if they had to ask leading questions in order to find the quote they desired. They exaggerate the demands that Israel must pull all IDF soldiers out of Gaza and deploy them within Israel and have them provide defensive functions as there will be no gains from their continued deployments within Gaza. There have been reports which make the claim that all of the Hamas tunnels have been located and destroyed. Such reports have appeared every day in one mainstream media report or another for the past week and will likely continue to appear until they can claim they got it correct. The fact that the IDF has found additional tunnels every single day and possibly every couple of hours has not dulled the mainstream media’s insatiable desire to continue the lie that there is nothing else left for the IDF to accomplish so they may as well be brought back to safety as any additional deaths will be unproductive. The overriding story is a constant beating of the further IDF operations inside Gaza against Hamas are endangering lives needlessly drums to deafening levels. That is why every mention of the death toll in Gaza makes no reference to the numbers of dead who are Hamas combatants and the mainstream media simply implies that every death is a civilian death. There is a tactic which is known well by the members of the mainstream media used by Hamas as well as numerous other terrorist entities almost in coordination with the media who accommodate this deceit by waiting for approval to photograph an area after a strike until the terrorist leadership in the area grants them their approval. The delay is used in order to transform the Hamas combatants into innocent civilians by a complex series of steps, they first remove any weapons from the dead combatant and remove any ammunition and grenades and remove rocket launchers from the area as well as anything else which might denote the corpse as belonging to a Hamas member and then presto-chango, instant civilian casualty. Israel has confirmed that at the very least they have killed approaching, if not surpassed, three-hundred Hamas and Islamic Jihad combatants but the media would never take IDF assurances as worth any credibility though Hamas press releases are sworn by as being from unimpeachable sources of the highest quality.

 

The next few days will have coverage of United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and United States Secretary of State John Kerry releasing sound bites to the media about their hopes and beliefs that the Israelis will soon heed the calls from the world to end the needless carnage in Gaza and quiet may soon be reestablished in Gaza. There will likely be little commentary whether or not there will be quiet in Israel or if the rockets will continue to rain on civilian areas within Israel. Hamas has made it more than obvious that they will never accept any Egyptian brokered peace initiative and their obstinacy has been strongly reinforced by having meetings between United Nations and United States personnel with representatives of the governments of Turkey and Qatar and initiated further coordination in efforts to forge an initiative which might be more presentable and acceptable to Hamas. When one considers the statements made in recent days as well as over the past years by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan denouncing and demonizing Israel and insulting Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu as well as other Israeli officials including Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and even Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, it is not surprising that the Turkish leadership would be completely supportive of Hamas. Their unrivaled support for Hamas is in complete agreement with their disintegrating relations with Egypt since the removal of the Muslim Brotherhood supported President Morsi and his replacement with former Egyptian Military Head General Sisi. Prime Minister Erdogan’s support for Sunni Islamist extremist militant groups even extends to his open support for ISIS. Also, Qatar has been Hamas’s most prolific and generous financial backer since their falling out with Iran over Hamas supporting the Sunni rebels against Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad. It was a twenty-million dollar donation from Qatar which United Nations Middle East Envoy Robert Serry attempted to have transferred to Hamas during the search for the three Hamas abducted Israeli teens where he first requesting that Mahmoud Abbas handle the transactions and after being refused approached Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to make the transfer. This led to Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman to demand his eviction. Why the United States and United Nations are both rebuking the Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire and instead seeking to facilitate either a Turkish or Qatari mediation escapes credulity unless one is to believe that both entities desire to place Israel in the worst and most compromised position possible and are seeking as pro-Hamas an agreement as can be presented to give their full backing and force upon Prime Minister Netanyahu. This also makes the actions by the FAA to suspend flights appear more as a shot across Israel’s bow than a necessary actions for the protection of the airlines. If the airlines believed there exists a serious and present danger to their aircraft, pilots, passengers and other personnel, they would not wait for any memo or announcement from the FAA, they would cancel the flights on their own volition. The only reason that an FAA order was issued was because the airline companies probably refused an advisory notice that continuing flights into Ben Gurion International Airport was no longer safe and should be suspended and that forced the administration’s hand and the ban was then issued taking the decision out of the airline company official’s hands. Just a point of information, Ben Gurion has an Iron Dome battery placed specifically to protect it from any missile attacks and the closest any Hamas rocket has struck was over a mile from the airport presenting no danger to approaching or leaving flights but did destroy an Israeli family’s home. This was the validating reason the FAA gave that flights to and from Israel were unsafe. Proof this move was an economic threat was the additional demand that the airline companies remove all their aircraft from Ben Gurion International Airport and fly them elsewhere devoid of passengers or cargos. This will cause the restitution of flights to take at least one additional day as the aircraft will need to be restationed inside Israel.

 

Between the media going to great lengths to write up the story that Israelis are tired of the death and destruction and that the deaths of soldiers are mounting to heights that have sapped the will of a nation to continue the fight are false and a disgusting attempt to poison the waters. The dispatch of Secretary of State Kerry when neither side requested his assistance is another affront which signifies that President Obama believes that this just might be the conflict where he can appear Presidential and win a victory even if it is at the cost of Israel’s future and the possibility for Israel to clean out the rats nest which is Gaza. There has been an eerie silence about the disposition of the rockets found stored at two separate United Nations Relief Workers Agency (UNRWA) schools which UNRWA officials arranged to have them removed by Hamas refusing Israeli requests simply for photographs as proof of the find. There has been no explanation why the request by a member state of the United Nations, Israel, was refused yet a recognized terrorist group even by the United Nations standards was given these rockets which were illegally stored in a United Nations facility. The world media and governments simply accepted such as business as usual. It is the accumulation of so many things as business as usual and virtually all of such events favoring Hamas over Israel which leads to suspicions that perhaps it really is Hamas with the cooperation, support, backing and blessings of the world governments and agencies against Israel. Yes, President Barack Obama has stated that the United States stands behind Israel in her right to defend themselves, but he also promised that the Americans under his healthcare initiative would save two-thousand-five-hundred dollars, be able to keep their own doctor if they liked them, keep their health insurance plan if they desired, and that after every scandal just read or heard it when everybody else did on the news, so somehow I will take his actions to speak louder than his words. His reliance on Turkey and Qatar, two nations supporting Hamas and antagonistic to Israel as proof of where his intentions and emotions lie. The backing of such by the United Nations and European Union do not make such decisions any more palatable. Israel needs to decide exactly what it is they require and feel is necessitated and then work towards that end regardless of whether or not Europe or the United States desire different. Let the news stories and the full court press by those less interested in the lives and future of Israelis and their country than they are with the survivability of Hamas and Islamic Jihad scream, pound their fists, stomp their feet and call Israel whatever names that intimate her being an out of control obsessive aggressive nation and yell it from the highest mountains and have it plastered across page one of media outlets the world across including even in Israel with thanks to Haaretz. We know what is necessary and what must be accomplished in order to make our little sliver of land safe and allow many of the children who have spent much of their lives living in fear and not playing outside without one eye on the closest shelter finally only have to worry about the weather and the rain falling onto their little heads be soft water and not steeled projectiles. Perhaps this is a little harsh, but perhaps Israel should send Secretaries Kerry and Ki-Moon back to their offices in the United States and tell them that this time, we will call them and do not call on us before then, thank you. This time the Hamas rockets are able to threaten and strike virtually every inch of Israel and if there were to be another time these rockets would become larger guided missiles with who knows what capabilities including chemical agent delivery which is the reason there cannot be a next time. This is a war for the life of Israel and we must fight it as such and everybody else may scream themselves hoarse, we are not listening and frankly only care about securing our future. Were your nation under the same threats you would act exactly as we must now act, so do not bother to condemn Israel for choosing life, we meant Never Again and continue to mean Never Again.

Hamas Abduction Balloon Must be Popped

From the beginning of this most recent Hamas systematic escalation of violence against Israel generally and her Jewish population in particular, one of the main objectives shared by all the Hamas terrorist fighters was the abduction of an Israeli, soldier or civilian was not among their concerns. This may have been what foiled with the abduction of the three youths in Judea and Samaria when after one of the kidnap victims succeeded in contacting Police led the Hamas kidnappers to believe they were likely to rapidly be facing capture so they immediately murdered the three youths and disposed of their bodies as rapidly as possible in a shallow grave. This was followed up by the claim earlier this week by Hamas that they had abducted an IDF soldier. This caused joyous celebrations in both Gaza and Judea and Samaria where there were crowds dancing and sharing sweets and cake. Initially Israel denied that any of their soldiers were not accounted for but later this fell into doubt as it appeared that one of the seven soldiers who were inside an APC (armored personnel carrier) which was destroyed and had been further destroyed by the ensuing fire, they found that potentially some body parts and his id tags were missing from within the destroyed vehicle. This creates a potential situation which has numerous similar cases from the past where terrorists such a Hezballah or Hamas have captured a live IDF soldier or taken an IDF soldier’s remains and held either in order to exchange either the live soldier, as Hamas did with Gilad Shailt, or the deceased soldier’s corpse, as Syria has done, for the release of terrorists from Israeli prisons. This must be the time where Israel puts this cynical and monstrous abduction temptation to rest permanently by refusing to permit such ransom from paying benefits ever again. Where this may become difficult is with United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and United States Secretary of State Kerry and their teams all pressing Israel to agree to any sets of demands from Hamas just so long as they can declare that peace in our time has been attained and go home until the next war, and unless something radically different than all previous insanities is attempted this time, there will be a next war and another after that on infinitum.

 

There is one change which can alter the entire atmosphere and it is up to the Israeli leadership to initiate the necessary changes. The Israelis must inform all parties who are attempting to mediate an agreement that Israel will not entertain any peace proposals as long as any of their soldiers, civilians or even the mortal remains of a soldier or civilian is potentially being held as a hostage in order to force Israeli compliance and meeting of demands to release terrorists or any other demand which might be pressed for their return. After presenting the Israel position on this subject will come the difficult part, sticking to their guns. Once they have informed both Secretary Kerry and Secretary General Ki-Moon of their position and opinion that they refuse to cease their assault or even begin to negotiate until they have whomever Hamas may be holding returned, they must then literally be willing to hold fast to that position and when these diplomatic opportunists return demanding Israeli negotiate, they must politely refuse and restate their demand that their people be returned regardless of their condition. When the point is eventually made that prisoners of war are usually negotiated for to gain their release, Israel must reply that this war is not a war between nations but an act of enforcement against an alliance of terrorist organizations which Hamas and Islamic Jihad are identified as such by both the United States and the United Nations therefore the laws of prisoners of war do not apply and it is actually a hostage situation and Israel will not be negotiating with terrorists who are holding Israeli hostages. They must make the point that the Israeli operations in Gaza will continue and will, if necessary, overturn every last brick and tear away every board until they locate their missing personnel or their remains and that if Hamas has any desire for an end to hostilities, they can start by returning the abducted Israeli personnel. Then, until Hamas complies Israel needs to continue their Gaza operations and continue to seek their personnel and take whatever measures militarily are required in order to gain their release and return without exception or mercy.

 

The Israeli people need to reinforce this position by making it obvious through polling, demonstrations, petition drives and every other possible means that not only are they in complete support of no negotiations and no peace until all Israelis are returned to Israel and that if the leaders of this government are unable to hold such a tight line and position then the people will do whatever it takes to vote in leaders who have the willpower and intestinal fortitude to stand up for every Israeli as any one of the people of Israel could be the next terrorist bargaining chip. Only by making the abduction of both civilians and soldiers and even the stealing of the remains of a fallen soldier or Israeli civilian will not serve to the advantage and will result in bringing ruin down on the terrorist group and the population which supports them and such force will only increase over time. We have tried the other approach of negotiating for the return of our people or their remains and such has reached the point where the costs can no longer be tolerated. For that reason and for the future safety of every Israeli the practice of abduction and ransom must end and end immediately with whatever Hamas believes they are holding if such proves even that they have stolen parts of one of our brave IDF soldiers who sacrificed all in our protection. For those who have given so much we must demand their loss is respected by our leaders and such respect is forced upon our enemies such that they never again even think of stealing a single cell from one of our fallen heroes. For the future and for the dignity of fallen soldiers in this war and in all future conflicts we must stand firm and take this to whatever extreme proves necessary. We already know that our enemies do not believe in the same virtues as do we and that they hold opposing ideas of what is valuable as they value death which they prove by placing their innocents before their fighters while we value life which is why our soldiers stand between the people and our enemies. As was stated by Prime Minister Netanyahu, “We are using missile defense to protect our civilians, and they’re using their civilians to protect their missiles.” The differences are as stark as they have been in any war in the history of mankind. This is the latest struggle between civilization and the barbarians and the barbarians of Hamas cannot be permitted to use any act to gain advantage no matter how depraved or obscene.

 

Hamas must be destroyed as must their friends in Islamic Jihad and the plethora of terrorist groups throughout Gaza and eventually the same will be necessitated for Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem and further with those who are their supporters and sympathizers wherever they are to be found. And the accusations that Israel is using disproportionate force, we hope so as only a fool restricts the force they will use to equal the force used by their antagonist, especially when it was their antagonist which started the conflict. The world needs to adjust their moral consciences when they can ignore the carnage in Syria, the destructive barbarity which has brought back the use of crucifixion in Iraq, the war torn strife paralyzing Libya and the rest of the conflagrations around the world but become apoplectic the second Israel protects her people from the indiscriminate launching of rockets into her civilian population covering over three-fourths of the nation. The Malaysian airliner shot from the skies over eastern Ukraine by Russian separatists murdered more innocent civilians than Israel has civilians in Gaza during the entirety thus far of the conflict. What the news reports are refusing to tell the people of the world is that the fatalities in Gaza have consisted of close to 80% Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists but the news simply reports the total number of dead and implies that they are all civilians. I ask you honestly, how is it possible that the only dead in Gaza could all be civilians when the news has shown Israeli strikes which targeted only Hamas or other terrorist armed combatants? It simply does not hold up to inspection or reason, but many are fooled into thinking the number of dead in Gaza do not mean that any terrorists have been killed. Wake up and think for yourselves or the world really will deserve whatever it gets, just do not expect those who are awake, thinking and actually seeking truth to stand idly by and go over the cliff with the unthinking droves of sleepwalking humans who simply lap up whatever pabulum they are fed by the media.

Before getting into some of the technical information and adding some credible commentary and statistics on the situation here in the Hamas-Israel ongoing confrontation, a little personal note. There have been Code Red sirens warning of potential rocket strikes in Nahariya and Ma’alot which are normally only concerned with rockets fired by Hezballah out of Lebanon but apparently are at the extreme end of range for some of the Fajr 5 and the M75 rockets used by Hamas in Gaza. Thus far there has not been any strike within earshot of our place in Nahariya, Bruch Hashem and we pray that things remain that way. We have seen the effects of having a Code Red siren on some of our fellow citizens. Tapping an elderly lady on the shoulder lightly in order to allow her with her three items to go in front of us at the checkout drew a different response than one would normally expect. The poor lady nearly jumped out of her skin and reacted breathlessly stating firmly and emphatically, “Don’t touch me, I thought it was a rocket.” After her breathing, and I suspect heart rate, came back to normal we had a pleasant conversation and all ended well. I am blessed that my wife does not appear to be anywhere near as nervous or panicked; actually she has been very calm. I am quite proud of her for her fortitude as I realize that living under the gun, so to speak, can rattle even some of the most resolute and strong willed of us. Another point of interest was we had to go out within fifteen minutes of the Code Red alarm, they suggest you remain in a safe place for at least ten minutes, and we expected to have the sidewalks and roads to ourselves, no such luck. The roads, sidewalks and especially the beach by the Mediterranean were less crowded that usual, they were anything but devoid of people. The Israelis are mostly very calm and resolute in seeing that these hardships, even though they do require certain precautions and interruptions to our daily lives, will not steal from us the feelings of normalcy and safety in our homes and cities and nation. That is something we refuse to allow.

 

For everybody’s information, there were three weeks of steadily increasing rocket fire into Israel which had reached a crescendo of almost one hundred in a single day before Israel responded with a forty-eight hour warning for the assaults by rockets to stop. That included rockets shot at Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and central Israel where the majority of the population, infrastructure, manufacturing and commerce all reside. Even then, it was almost thirty-six hours past the deadline before Israel launched a response. Where you are hearing all these national leaders, international representatives and leaders of NGOs, Human Rights Groups and various others all condemning the Hamas rockets fire and the use of disproportionate force, that is all well and good but where were these very same sources of such equanimous condemnations when only Hamas was firing tens of rockets and approaching a hundred rockets a day for three weeks before Israel made any response? Were they sleeping like Rip Van Winkle or Sleeping Beauty and only arose from their slumbers right after Israel finally responded to protect her citizenry? Yes, there were a few who condemned the Hamas assaults before any Israeli response, but most of those people are still demanding that Hamas stop the rockets knowing full-well that once the rockets stop raining down on Israeli civilians, the Israel attacks will also cease. The same cannot be said for Hamas stopping their rocket barrages should Israeli forces stand down.

 

There are a number of contrasts which need to be examined and brought into the light so the world can see reality, not that many of those who only see a problem if Israel is defending themselves, such as United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay who released a statement claiming that the Israel defensive actions were criminal as they struck the homes of Hamas leadership where it is known to most everybody, but apparently Ms. Pillay did not receive the memo, that there are stores of rockets, weapons, ammunition, explosives and other tactical information and resources which under international law makes those homes legal military targets which can be struck and destroyed. Demolishing those homes does not constitute war crimes or any other offense other than to Ms. Pillay’s sensitivities. Another point apparently unknown to the outside world despite the evidence is that a Hamas officer made a television announcement demanding that the brave citizens of Gaza should remain in their homes after receiving warnings of a potential strike in their area and others should run towards any targeted location when they receive such notices and not run to safety. The reasoning behind this directive is that Israel has often called off strikes when civilians are seen to be in harm’s way of the attack and there have been a number of attacks that Israeli commanders or pilots have called off their primary target and either returned to base or struck a secondary target because of civilians, or especially children, are seen to be in close proximity to the target. The cases where civilians have been injured or killed are when Hamas places civilians inside the targeted location in order to have human tragedy stories and war crimes complaints they can sell to an ever willing and compliant press anxious for any news with which to condemn Israelis and the IDF.

 

Another front which very exactly focuses one’s attentions on the difference between Hamas and the other Palestinian terrorists, that includes Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority and Fatah, versus Israel is the developments and steps taken by each side since the last confrontation between Hamas and Israel in 2012. Hamas has added three new rockets to their arsenals and has built extensive smuggling tunnels and infiltration tunnels under the Gaza-Israel border and into Kibbutzim or concealed areas in order to sneak attack or abduct Israeli soldiers or civilians in order to repeat their successful trading of Gilad Shalit for over one thousand terrorist prisoners. Israel has produces as many Iron Dome batteries as they could make with little regard to the cost and built a great number of new and better shelters for the civilian population and such that there are always sufficient shelter space in close proximity to virtually any location. Israel has included into their building codes requiring that every apartment or house have a rocket safe room reinforced to prevent most rocket attacks even from direct strikes. Israel has placed their premium and critical attentions to the protection of their civilians and their efforts have given the greatest of all fruits, very few serious casualties from the barrages of rockets and mortars. Hamas demands that their civilians try to become martyrs that they can use in their public relations war on Israel. Hamas realizes that when there are many more Palestinian casualties when compared to Israeli casualties they can scream that Israel is using such overwhelming force that they are committing genocide and the mainstream media in the West will gobble these accusations and run with them all day and night on every newscast and special report. That is a lie and the truth is that Israel values human life to such an extent that they take every conceivable and available step to protect their citizens while giving the residents in Gaza at least ten minutes and even a whole day’s warning before they strike a target in the hopes that they can get a safe distance and prevent their becoming casualties.

 

I cannot stress the difference in the safety of civilians between Israel who even values the lives and health of their enemy’s civilians more than their leaders appear to value them. This is proven in another little mentioned part of the story which has been covered here but few other places. Israel has continued to transfer tons upon tons of supplies into Gaza every day even while the conflict has raged. We are speaking of anywhere from seven to twenty tractor trailer loads of food and medical supplies. Israel has continued to provide Gaza with one third of their electricity and with water. Israel is not treating their injured as they are being treated by the Egyptians in hospital in the northern Sinai Peninsula. Israel is permitting the transfer of people of which some are probably Hamas members to the hospitals in Egypt for treatment despite it being well within Israeli capabilities to prevent such transfers of people. Israel continues to treat the Gazans who were receiving treatment in Israel when hostilities broke out. This would have included the relative of one of the leaders of Hamas, recently resigned as of the forming of the unity government Prime Minister Haniyeh, whose mother-in-law was recently treated in an Israeli hospital. What nation provides their enemies during active warfare with food, medical supplies, electricity, water and treats the relatives of their enemies’ highest leadership in their hospitals? If you can find one other than Israel I would be interested in hearing all about such a generous people.

 

There are many realities which are not being reported throughout the world in the mainstream media. I can write about the realities and give the examples all of which are readily and easily verifiable through simple searches on the Internet. The best thing that could ever come of these efforts would be for many to verify what I report and then tell those people you meet on the way through your busy day and correct the misinformation and replace it with the truth and perhaps together we can rectify some of the smaller evils taking place in our worlds. The minds of people do respond when they are introduced to new information which can be verified or comes from a trusted source. It may be a slow and possibly tedious and possibly tendentious way to try and set the world right, but if we do not at least try then we are permitting the lies to rule the world. When lies rule the world then freedom and liberty find themselves orphans without a home. The truth not only sets you free but can also set those you meet on your way free and eventually can free everybody if only we try and simply refuse to relay falsehoods and propaganda from evil and deceitful sources. Any deceitful source is also an evil source as it poisons the minds and the character through its retelling of lies which will rot one’s soul over time. Breathe in the refreshing winds of truth and allow them to spread and sweep away the stench of lies and condemnations of the innocents. Israel is fighting a war on the front lines against the world’s most powerful force for darkness. Don’t take my word; allow me to introduce you to what Winston Churchill said of the Muslim people and religion. Part of Churchill’s writings on Islam stated, 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.” You can read the rest here if you are so interested.
