W.S. Churchill about Islam

 “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, but the influence of the religion  paralyzes 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 (Islam) has vainly struggled,  the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”   WS Churchill
