I dag slog islams mujahediner til i hjertet af EU. En lufthavn og en metrostation i Bryssel er blevet angrebet med selvmordsbomber. Mange sårerede og omkring et dusin dræbte.
Disse mennesker giver aldrig op. Man må forstå islam for at forstå hvorfor:
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. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die: 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 civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.
Ordrene er selvfølgelig skrevet af Winston Churchill, der som ung soldat mødte mujahedinerne i kamp både på det indiske subkontinent og i Afrika. Hverken kristendom eller humanisme bider på islam. Det gør kun ild og stål, som Churchill selv oplevede det ved Omdurman.
