I am told that in an interview with Paul Nuttall, to be broadcast this Thursday evening on the Tonight program on ITV, they called on him to sack me because of my comments on Islam – or as we should more correctly refer to it: Mohammedanism.
I won’t say anything further on this subject here, but it would be interesting to know how our greatest Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill would have fared in the modern world given his views on the same subject.
This is what Winston Churchill wrote in 1898 in his book “The Story of the Malakand Field Force.”
“No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund Mohammedanism is a militant and proselyting 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.
“That religion, which above all others was founded and propagated by the sword – the tenets and principles of which are instinct with incentives to slaughter and which in three continents has produced fighting breeds of men – stimulates a wild and merciless fanaticism.
“The weapons of the nineteenth century are in the hands of the savages of the Stone Age.”
As he often was, Sir Winston was remarkably accurate in his observations.
