Looking at Islam as a Religion is the Fundamental Problem in the West

Great comments from “progressoverpeace” in response to this post at AoSHQ: Best Article on the Ground Zero Victory Mosque and Murderous Islam You’ll Read

63 — What most everyone misses about islam is quite simple and straightforward:

It’s not a religion (in the Western sense) but a political ideology at its core, and a violently expansionist one that looks to claim the powers of State over every inch of land in the universe.

Looking at islam as a religion is the fundamental problem in the West.

On islam, they’re more Neville Chamberlain than Winston Churchill: appeasing, self-deluding, craven, and dangerous.

Look at what they did to Churchill right after the war was won.

Every thread about the Brits and islam should include Churchill’s well-known piece from The river War (1899):

“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.”
