Beyond the Cusp

Western Culture is the Culture Which Refuses to be Defined!

 

Multiculturalism, postmodernism, globalism or whatever headline name you wish to give the New Age culture, the main canon is we shall not live by the old rules. When asked by what rules these New Agers plan to live by, the most given answer is whatever I feel like at the moment. They will fight any attempt to name them or give their lives any set of defining terms, as they will oppose them simply such that they are seen in opposition to any definition. They claim they are free of such ideas as rules, limits, morals, ethics, morality or etiquette and that they make it up in the moment. This in the moment is the closest they come to any mantra and perhaps they are the personification of the old 1960’s rallying call of, “If it feels good, do it.” That was the call for living in the moment from that era and today’s millennials appear to be living out the hippie culture without realizing it. The problem with having an entire generation actually living within such a culture driven purely by the hippie ethos should frighten everybody when considering what the immediate future will become as these youth grow into the positions of power. But there is another alternative which is being proposed in Europe to replace the questionable future by providing the people with an ironclad and rigid ethical system which defines exactly how to perform every single action and decision in life. That is perhaps more than equally frightening as what will happen and which side will win when those living lives of total freedom with no limits or rules come into conflict with those whose lives are defined down to the last little action as which hand to use when eating and every act more complicated than that?

 

Islam is coming to Europe and it is coming in its most violent and restrictive variety. Islam will demand complete and total surrender to Allah and to his laws in the Quran. There will be no deviation from the rules, there will be no alteration of the rules, there will be only one set of rules and the Imam will dictate these rules from the laws written in the Quran and the Hadiths. Everyone must conform to the rules, both Muslim and Infidel. The Infidel will accept the classification as Dhimmi and live under the restrictions which are imposed upon all Dhimmi and act as subordinates to Muslims. Women must know their place, only travel outside the home in the company of a male relative be it husband, son, brother, uncle or other male relative or responsible male related in some manner. Women must remain veiled and dressed humbly and modestly and walk subjectively steps behind their male escort. Husbands are to strike wives in such a manner so as not to leave any permanent marks if she requires corrective influence as she is not sufficient subordinated or acts in some other undesirable manner. And a host of further rules with the eventual demand that all Dhimmis face a decision of conversion to Islam or being put to death, often by horrific means. Even should Dhimmi accept conversion, they will be constantly monitored closely seeking to note any action which might indicate that their conversion was done under false means and were not true in their faith. Such actions would result in torture to force a confession followed by execution as described above. All followers of Islam must observe the Five Pillars of Islam (see image below). The central demand of all Islam is also the meaning of the word Islam, surrender, as one is required to surrender their lives to Islam and follow all that Muhammad demands. This brings up the question of the contradictory laws, rules, customs and dictates found within the Quran. These are settled through Naskh (نسخ), an Arabic word usually translated as “abrogation”, the principle where an older verse is superseded by a new verse which contradicts or alters the initial verse in the Quran, or within the Hadiths. This is a major principle which would take too long to go through in this article but an introduction with multiple links in the comments section provided by our readers give more information and flush out this concept and the need thereof. The main concept of Islam which contradicts the lifestyle of the millennials is the demand that one surrender to Islam and its strict obedience of a rigid structure, the opposite of their beliefs.

 

Five Pillars of Islam

 

The problem which will soon confront the millennials is that their belief that little is worth fighting over will face pressure from Islam that they dedicate themselves to a set of strict rules even should they resist conversion. The millennials will not accept living as a Dhimmi any better than they would accept living as a Muslim. Their freedom filled lifestyle will not be accepted by Islam and this will place the two in direct opposition and then they will be faced with their worst nightmare, having to decide if anything in life, including the right to live as one chooses, is worth struggling, even fighting, to retain that which they have over the invading demands of Islam. Facing the choice of fight or flight many may decide on flight and then comes the question as to where? Moving elsewhere in Europe would, at best, simply put off the challenge until a later time as, unless Islam is prevented from becoming the dominant force in Europe, there will be no freedom the millennials currently understand as Islam stifles all freedoms replacing everything in life with the Quran, the Hadiths, the Imam’s rulings, the Five Pillars of Islam and total surrender to their new masters way of life. There are those who are already ready and standing in opposition of Islam. Some are trying to wake the European continent and are using the political system such as Geert Wilders. Others are using a more direct method meeting Islamic rioters in the streets and escorting women on trains and buses which pass through predominantly Muslim neighborhoods where they have been attacked in the past for indecent dress, also known as Western fashion. Some quote great men in history who had seen this threat before such as Charles “The Hammer” Martel and King of Poland John III Sobieski, two men who saved the opposite ends of Europe from Islamic advances, and Winston Churchill who saw the threat of the Nazis and rallied Britain, and saw the threat of Communism which he named their oppression as an Iron Curtain falling across the continent of Europe, but long before noting either of these threats, Winston Churchill recognized another threat which did not threaten one continent but the entirety of mankind if this threat were not understood, recognized and taken on with everything equal to the extents taken to answer the later two threats of the Nazis and Communists, and this first threat was Islam. We recognized his wisdom which includes the quotes shown below plus more in our article European Union Should Worry About Europe Not Israel; and here are those quotes from the Honorable Sir Winston Churchill:

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.

 

Another problem the millennials and those growing up after them face is a lack of knowledge of history which means they never heard of Winston Churchill beyond a few quips in computer games. Many are not well read as they were instructed in whole word recognition which restricts their vocabulary to only the worlds their teachers introduced to them. They were not given the power of phonics and sounding out words from their spelling unless they had a teacher in elementary schools who never received the memo about using whole word recognition which was distributed somewhere in the early 1990’s. This new method for reading made reading new material on one’s own difficult and so cumbersome that it was virtually painful as any word one did not know they would need to ask somebody what it was. The meaning they might be capable of finding in a dictionary or thesaurus but how the word was pronounced they likely required assistance. This makes any advanced book on history, politics, philosophy or even mathematics or physics beyond their capability and newspapers would be equally challenging. This is one of the reasons for the character limit on Twitter as it makes one write in a less complex manner using short and easy world. News on music channels is given in short and uncomplicated manner using statements which would also be acceptable as a Twitter post. The entirety of their world is contained in 140 characters or less, including spaces and punctuation. Perhaps this explains the lack of punctuation and the great new idea in schools that spelling should be an expression of one’s feelings for the word and that there not be any exacting idea for how words be spelled. This has even extended to mathematics where it is now the process which matters where if a student can explain how their method should have led them to the correct answer, that should count more than whether they did actually find the correct answer. Education just is not what it used to be and thus neither are the students or the knowledge expected from them. This also further explains why millennials believe that it is their freedom to do as they please which is important and the results should simply be accepted by the rest of society.

 

The lack of discipline shown by millennials and the younger set has included a new psychosis which is defined as Chronic Lateness and any person who is late to work on average three times per week cannot be fired for their tardiness as it is not their fault, they suffer from Chronic Lateness. This is a sample of how anything which millennials and the following generations and even us older people are now relieved of any responsibilities towards others and how all actions are now to be acceptable as they are simply the defined reasons and concepts under which each individual lives. We are all to be permitted to define how we live and exactly what others must expect and permit us to act even if it causes them problems as those are their problems and do not lay your problems on me, man. There is going to be a clash of civilizations as in Islam the five times of prayer every day are set in stone. They are announced in a less than casual cry by the muezzin often with the aid of expensive and powerful amplification systems such that nothing can mistake when the time for prayer has arrived. Imagine the millennial who upon hearing the call to prayer at 5:00 AM who decided to roll over and go back to sleep as they do not feel like bothering to rise and shine, and then at 11:00 AM when the second call to prayer is heard they had a rough night and our millennial decides they still require more rest turns back to their original side and returns to sleep and then finally rolls out of bed around 1:00 PM and then they just might become noticeable due to their absence at the morning prayer times. Somehow, it is doubtful that the Muslims would accept Chronic Lateness Syndrome. As we noted earlier, Islam is very rule oriented in everything in one’s life and that starts with waking for morning prayers as Salah, praying to Allah five times per day, is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. On the other side of the argument, if the millennials are going to defend their rights to live as they please by their rules and in a world where Chronic Lateness Syndrome is acceptable, then they may actually have to stand and do something.

 

Should they not stand, then Europe may end up looking like the map below along with the Middle East, Asia and Northern Africa. From there Islam has stated plans on moving on to North America starting with the United States and then moving on southward in both the Americas and Africa and lastly taking on China and Asia. There are many Imams and Islamic leaders who believe that these conquests are written in stone, or at least the Quran, and guaranteed by Allah and thus their efforts cannot be resisted. After they take control of the entire world, there will only be a few questions left to answer. The first question will be which interpretation of Islam will take total control, Shiites, Sunni, Salafi, Sufism, Wahhabis, Ahmadiyyas, Alawite or Kharijites. The average betting man would choose Sunni or Wahhabis but should Iran be the only Muslim nation with nuclear weapons, particularly thermonuclear devices, then the Shiites would be the best bet. Even after this, there will probably be yet another final question which will cause one final war, who will be the Caliph who will be expected to bring in the Twelfth Imam or the Mahdi who then would bring back Muhammad. One would hope that there would be no more conflict and everything would finally be settled and everything put in place for their End Times, but we likely missed something somewhere.

Will the world fall to Islam? That will first depend on whether Europe falls to Islam and this we have discussed numerous times and explained the required changes should Europe honestly desire to preserve its heritage. The easiest means of finding resolution for saving Europe would be a return to religion, filling the pews every Sunday, and through this restoring of their Christian heritage, having children, many children which would allow for a basis of workers to provide for the aging population. The having of children is the most important item on the list and there is no time like the present to begin their efforts. The map above should be sufficient impetus for action on behalf of the European population, then we are not sure what it might take. There have been signs of a restoration of religion even in Russia where President Putin has recognized that the future of Russia is heavily embedded in the return and rebirth of the Russian Orthodox Church. Christianity’s rebirth in Europe would mean Catholicism in Italy, Spain, Portugal, France and beyond; the Church of England and Catholicism in Britain and across the Isles; Lutheranism in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Germany; Eastern Orthodox and Greek Orthodox in Eastern Europe and Poland; Calvinism in North and West Switzerland, minorities in Germany and Hungary, Scotland, a large minority in Northern Ireland, smaller numbers in England, Wales, Ireland and Malta. There are other churches and Catholicism throughout all of Europe and into Russia and all of these and even more modern and liberal churches such as the Church of Christ, Presbyterian Church, Evangelical Church, and some of the ancient churches such as the Assyrians, Coptic and others all need to contribute efforts and possibly even a new church using many of the originalist teachings of the early church which includes families as important and held many interesting principles and teachings which fell away with time and could add a degree of authenticity and excitement which would assist in the rebirth of faith in the new Europe. Imagine a church based on the originalist teachings becoming the newest church and the form of Christianity which allows for the reality in faith necessary for modern Europeans. Perhaps the millennial Church where services start Sunday morning around eleven and continue all afternoon, drop by as you feel the need and enjoy the service and adjust to the segment you find most comfortable, and don’t forget, children are bliss and excitement and teach real truths which we may not have found yet in our lives. Perhaps traditional churches and religions would be most appropriate to begin with, but hopefully, we might just see some version of these proposed paths come to fruition.

Israeli Predicament with the World

 

Once again the world is teetering on the brink of another disastrous attempt to press a Middle East grand plan for peace. Do not misinterpret this as the idea that Israel is against making peace as there is nothing the Israelis desire more than a real and just peace. On the other hand what they fear is the concept being once again driven that if only Israel were to surrender further and just find that correct balance of sacrificed level of secure area while giving away dangerous high grounds and leaving from the areas where her intelligence gathering has proven sufficient to prevent another disastrous terror war as well as preventing the replacement of the Arab Palestinian Authority (PA) governance by Hamas or the potentially worse Islamic State replacing Abbas in another coup just as they did Gaza placing all Israel under mortal threat, then there would be peace and no further threat to Europe. Under the world’s radar Israel has prevented any number of schemes to forcibly replace the somewhat milder terrorist PA, and do not ever lose sight of this fact that the PA is a terror entity, with the religiously fanatical Hamas or Islamic State over the last decade since giving that same PA control over Gaza which they lost in a quick but deadly putsch by Hamas allied with Islamic Jihad and the Muslim Brotherhood which brought onto Israel a number of ever increasingly dangerous terror rocket wars. These all proceeded in the same methodology of a slow ramping over weeks leading to months of rockets being fired into southern Israel and eventually in this last war reaching Jerusalem and Tel Aviv all the way up the coast to Haifa. This slowly raising the terror rocket temperature to slowly boil Israeli in the pan of explosive projectiles while not disturbing the media always received little if any coverage only when there was loss of life or such loss being achieved through apparent miracles succeeded in its aim of stealth. This always led to the first mentioning of any violence always came when Israel was finally forced to use the IDF at a high level of force to end the hundreds of rockets raining down on Israeli towns, farms, kibbutzim and into its industrial heart.

 

The same being able to be directed from the overlooking Judean Hills would be more devastating to Israel than any story realized thus far. Hundreds to over a thousand and approaching two thousand rockets and now missiles being launched and directed from the heights overlooking central Israel where almost three out of four Israelis reside and over eighty percent of her industrial and power generating power is centralized and the shuttering of Ben Gurion International Airport would be ruinous for Israel and an assault from which she would take decades upon decades to recover from assuming recovery were even an option. Such an assault would cause a mass and panicked race for the borders of potentially the majority of the Israeli population which could send ripples through the IDF as soldiers moved with their families to anywhere outside the range of the rocket and missile threat. The Arab forces would then have an IDF in disarray and weakened state with the backing of her reserves likely decimated by the exodus to safety. This would be the exact scenario should the French initiative prove to be the grand success that they believe they are targeting and what President Obama might just utilize as a last grand push for peace and a second Nobel Peace Prize as well as cementing his legacy as the President that brought ruination in the form of a grand peace to the Jewish State. Trust that should the Jewish State of Israel be erased from the map, the actual desired end of the Palestinian and Arab peace plans, the Nobel Committee would be beside themselves is glorious celebration that that perceived thorn in the side of a true and lasting peace and end to all Arab terror had finally arrived that they would be handing out Nobel Peace Prizes like candy on Halloween.

 

The reality would turn out to be something quite different. With Israel out of the way the first casualty would be Cyprus followed by Crete and on to the Grecian Islands leaving an Islamic beachhead in the heart of Europe which was not dependent on Turkey or Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan whose desire to lead the next Caliphate relied on Turkey being the Islamic beachhead. Such a situation would also illicit an advance through Sicily and up the Italian Peninsula where the two thrusts would meet once again at Vienna except this time the city would fall. This would in turn permit a push northward across the Balkans and into Austria, Poland and Germany then turning westward through France and into Spain and northward into Britain. This would inevitably lead to the invasion of Scandinavia and finally the push from the west and south into the heart of Russia. This scenario is how the Islamic Caliphate which would have been formed would anticipate such a conquest aided by the millions of advanced troops using the refugees as their regular soldiers and shock troops starting internal strife and rioting escalating as the Islamic forces approached spreading each national military and law enforcement thinly defending the country from forces external and internal simultaneously. The only variable is how far into such a scenario would the remainder of Europe awaken? Assuming that such a scenario were planned and executed over a number of decades the Europeans would be slowly devoured and likely never awaken from their war weary slumbers.

 

Fortunately the forces of the coming Islamic expansion will be anything but inexorably slow and planned for minimal upheaval attempting to weaken each region internally before striking as the saviors from rioting and terror. Instead there will be an explosion of terror and rioting across much of Europe upon the conquest of the Grecian Isles and the spread into the Balkan States. Romania will be one nation which will likely be bypassed as the perception of a bitter and long struggle will linger from wars past and initially Romania might be bypassed and the assaults strike headlong into Poland and Germany while North African arm assaults Sicily and the Italian peninsula. As this will be one persistent assault and conquest, the sleeping Europe will likely awaken and unite this time before the situation has deteriorated beyond repair. Of course this is predicated on nationalist governments being elected as the more leftist socialist humanitarian governance proves inadequate to the task at hand. Such a uniting of an awakened and truly terrified and terrorized Europe with the enlisted assistance of the United States could terminate any advance before the complete fall of Poland and Germany could be completed and the Italian assault closing but not yet in possession of Rome. The Vatican calling for assistance for the sake of the Church and all Christianity could, especially with a Pope from South America, solidify a united Christian front to counter Islam and all future peace would be dependent on one side or the other being completely victorious and vanquishing the other pressing the other religion literally into the recesses of secrecy and potentially all but eradicated from the Earth.

 

Of course this entire scenario can never be carried out as long as the cork is in the bottle and that cork is Israel. The mere existence of Israel stabilizes the immediate area allowing for a moderate and economically focused military nexus in addition to security oriented Egypt and a stable situation in Jordan and Saudi Arabia. A strong Israel also acts as a restraint on Iran and its slowly deteriorating offensive to build a crescent of power across to the Mediterranean Sea through southern Iraq, Syria and Lebanon also gaining a foothold on the Israeli border and potentially striking at Jordan and the PA in order to weaken Israel. Such a scenario coming into fruition would shock and threaten Erdogan and Turkey which, if attacked, could request assistance through NATO treaty obligations bringing the powers of Europe and the United States et al into the fray and likely ending the advance and with it any Iranian hopes for further conquest. Trust that the biggest threat does not come from the Islamic State, though they are a direct threat to peace in the area any time soon, but from a nuclear armed Iran threatening nuclear ruin on any opposition and once nuclear weapons in any form from an EMP device to a hydrogen city killing device, use of such weapons would bring far more than a slap on the wrist and assisting compliant actions from the United States and even Europe. The civilizational conflict of the ages is once again simmering and potentially about to boil over. The quencher who can turn off the burner before anything gets a foothold is a strong Israel. Simply explained, with Israel positioned to be a ruinous force against any supply lines from the Middle East to any European front and the Israeli long arm which can disrupt even shipments intended for Hamas while they are still traversing the Sudan is just further proof that Israel, especially if sided through secretive agreements by Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, has an extended reach and intelligence network such that any overt actions can be anticipated and mitigated.

The name of the game is to prevent the fall of Europe directly to Islamic forces. That does not mean that Europe is safe as even Israel cannot prevent a European politically correct surrender to the Islamic forces within. The Stealth Jihad has been extremely effective despite not even having any coordinating framework yet established. This is most definitely changing and the race is on between the Muslim Brotherhood, the Wahabbists, Iranian Shiites and the Islamic State as to who will be the puppet master coordinating the terror actions throughout Europe and beyond into the Americas. Iran would be the most dangerous as they would necessarily require changing the dynamics of the entire equation proving to the vast number of Sunni Muslims that their Shiite form of Islam was the preeminent Islamic force and being led by the Mahdi or those sent to prepare for the Mahdi’s arrival which would need to also be sold as imminent. Of course this would require an entire propaganda coup making such an eventuality appear to be within the Iranian grasp but solely by its Shiite narrative within Islam thus giving the Shia Islam the claim of the right path following the strong horse. Until now the strong horse had always been Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Needless to point out, a nuclear armed Iran changes such a scenario once and for all or at the least until the leaders of Sunni Islam develop or procure their own nuclear weapons. Such weapons might very well be utilized by Bashir al-Assad as a final strike weapon of last resort. This is likely to be prevented by the fears of European national reaction which would agitate the European nations and potentially awaken them to the shocking and imminent threat they jointly face.

 

The Europeans and the Americans must open their eyes and realize that Islam is not a religion so much as it is a supremacist document replete with instruction to conquer the entirety of mankind, subjugate them to Islam and utilize Sharia to terrorize the masses of people into submission. There is a reason the Quran requires one to surrender to Islam. That is due to its all-encompassing directives about how to live every minute of one’s life. It invokes a class system which makes social advancement directly related to ones dedication to the precepts of Islam. Islamic teachers will tell people that it has always been the future of mankind and that none may escape the icy hand of Islam as it imposes its dominion over mankind. The ideals of Islam are totalitarian and are blatantly anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, anti-Buddhist, anti-Shinto and against every other religion and other governing structure which does not enforce Islam on all their subjects, their people. It can cause scientific stagnation and potentially lead to regressive scientific knowledge as in its most virulent form, the ones in use today in Saudi Arabia, the Islamic State, Iran, Hamas, Erdogan and all too many others. The individuals attempting to mitigate some of the sharp shards enforced under Islam leads to physical sexual mutilation of women, suppression of all thoughts outside of the Quran and Muhammad’s life, bigamy, honor killing of female (and rare cases of male) members of a family who is believed to have committed a sexual act forbidden in Islam thus detracting from the family name thus requiring their murder, misogyny, slavery (still practiced in some Islamic communities), no religious freedoms, no freedom of speech, no free press or media, no individual liberty, no freedom of thought, the murder of all found to be living a gay or homosexual lifestyle, no deviation from the accepted lifestyle limitations as interpreted by the Imams (which can include bans on such activities as dancing, objectionable lyrics, music, movies, books other than the Quran, singing outside of prayer, clothing restrictions, hair style, beard requirements and other impingements on personal choice) and Islamic supremacy. Islam as it is being applied today is straightforwardly a geopolitical framework for world conquest and domination with no allowance for accepting any other religious or political system to exist throughout the entirety of the world. Islam is banned as a threat to peace, security and general happiness in several nations. It is banned as a practice, a religion, a governing format and is to be fought by these societies wherever it may attempt to root itself within their borders and the closing of exchange be it trade, commercial, movement of people and especially religious leaders as they view Islam as a threat to their way of life and the things they hold dear within their society. These nations also banned Communism for many of the same liberty crushing reasons. Islam demands complete world conquest and subjugation as part of its observance allowing for no other religion or ruling entity other than the Caliphate which is headed by the Mahdi, the supreme Islamic entity.

 

The Islamic final conquest of the world is currently preoccupied with Israel. Their main problem with Israel is multifaceted and starts with the fact that Israel is the land of the Jewish People, strike one. In Islam Judaism is the highest form of evil and must be stamped out. Their final world conquest begins with Israel as it sits on former Islamic lands, strike two. Finally, Israel has a strategic placement which sits at the crux, the joining lands of three continents, Asia, Europe and Africa. Such a strongpoint must be taken before any real conquest of these three continents can be pursued. The Islamic phrase which captures their initial required conquest of Israel does not mention Israel and solely states in Sahih Muslim Book 041, Hadith Number 6985, “Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.” Note it says nothing about Israel, Judea, Jerusalem, al Quds, West Bank, Gaza or any other location but insists on the death for all Jews wherever they may be found and that the Earth herself will reveal the Jews who attempt to hide. One can assume that Islam would also look favorably on the destruction of any groves of Gharqad trees.

Lastly and in closing, allow us to quote Winston Churchill cited a passage said to have been taken from a speech by Churchill, as reproduced in his 1899 book The River War: An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan, spoke of Islam stating,

 

I am sending the attached short speech from Winston Churchill, delivered by him in 1899 when he was a young soldier and journalist. It probably sets out the current views of many but expressed in the wonderful Churchillian turn of phrase and use of the English language, of which he was a past master. Sir Winston Churchill was, without doubt, one of the greatest men of the late 19th and 20th centuries.

He was a brave young soldier, a brilliant journalist, an extraordinary politician and statesman, a Great War leader and Prime Minister, to whom the Western world must be forever in his debt. He was a prophet in his own time; He died on 24 January 1965, at the grand old age of 90 and, after a lifetime of service to his country, was accorded a State funeral.

“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.”
