John Quincy Adams and Churchill on Islam


It seems that the Religion of Peace just can't get enough blood on its hands. Here's John Quincy Adams' take:

"In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar [i.e., Muhammad], the Egyptian, [.....] Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST.- TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE…. Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant... While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men."


And here's Winston Churchill's:

"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 had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."

Remember, it's all fun and games until they chop your buddy's head off. Slowly. In the name of the Prophet.

It's all quite sickening; these men made their points well.

Any religion that degrades sensualism or women (their worth/bodies) to such a rampant extent cannot possibly lead to anything other than a bunch of angry, warring, terrorizing, suicide bombing, psychotic men.

These women are their mothers, wives and daughters.

The men have got to embody (psychologically) the degradation in their own selves, as well then, to some extent. Women cannot be mutilated, treated like trash/possessions without somehow inflicting the men in her life with some level of mental anguish, even if he's been trained to deny it.

Twisted.
Obviously.

There will be a lot of blood so long as there is Islam. I can see no alternative on either side of the equation.
