Winston Churchill on Islam

“How dreadful are the curses of Mohammedanism……..the fanatical frenzy of it is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog……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…..No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.”

Excerpts from “The River War” Winston Churchill, 1899.
