“Churchill on Islam”

churchill-ease-and-comfort-dare-endure-quote_Fotor

 

Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill was one of the pre-eminent figures of the 20th Century. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953.

 

Churchill gained first-hand knowledge of Islam in the army. In 1895, he was posted in the North-West Frontier of India (now Pakistan), bordering Afghanistan.

 

He wrote in The Story of the Malakand Field Force: 

“Indeed it is evident that Christianity must always exert a modifying influence on men’s passions, and protect them from the more violent forms of fanatical fever. But the Mohammedan religion increases, instead of lessening, the fury of intolerance. It was originally propagated by the sword, and forever since, its votaries have been subject, above the people of all other creeds, to this form of madness.”

 

“Civilisation is confronted with militant Mohammedanism. The forces of progress clash with those of reaction. The religion of blood and war is face to face with that of peace. Luckily the religion of peace is usually the better armed.”

 

He also joined Lord Kitchener’s army in the Sudan, and took part in the Battle of Omdurman on September 2, 1898.

Churchill wrote in “The River War: An account of the Reconquest of Sudan:” 

“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. 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 their 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 proselytising 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.

 

“What the horn is to the rhinoceros, what the sting is to the wasp, the Mohammedan faith is to the Arabs of the Sudan – a faculty of offence.”

 

“All the warlike operations of Mohammedan peoples are characterised by fanaticism. The Mahdi became the absolute master of the Sudan. Whatever pleasures he desired he could command and, following the example of the founder of the Mohammedan faith, he indulged in what would seem to Western minds gross excesses. He established an extensive harem for his own peculiar use and immured therein the fairest captives of the war.”

 

Churchill noted the threat of Wahhabism on June 14, 1921 in the House of Commons. At that time, Churchill was Secretary for the British colonies and he had been involved in the formation of Iraq (in 1921), Jordan (Transjordan) and Palestine, territories which Britain had liberated from the Ottoman (Turkish) Empire.

 

A large number of Bin Saud’s followers belong to the Wahabi sect, a form of Mohammedanism. Said Churchill,

“The Wahhabis profess a life of exceeding austerity and what they practice themselves they rigorously enforce on others. They hold it as an article of duty, as well as of faith, to kill all who do not share their opinions and to make slaves of their wives and children. Women have been put to death in Wahhabi villages for simply appearing on the streets. Austere, intolerant, well-armed, and blood-thirsty, in their own regions the Wahhabis are a distinct factor which must be taken into account and they have been and still are, very dangerous to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina.”

 

The Bin Saud to whom Churchill refers here is King Abdul Aziz bin Saud (c. 1880-1953), who would go on officially to establish Saudi Arabia in 1932. The Wahhabists slaughtered 25 of the Mahmal caravan members at Mina because they played trumpets. Music was forbidden to the Wahhabists. The incident soured relations between Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

 

Churchill reminds us: “An appeaser is one who feeds the crocodile hoping it will eat him last. Victory will never be found by taking the line of least resistance.”

How to Spot a Psychopath

Posted in Cultural Marxism, ONLINE DEBATE, PSYCHIATRY, U.S. POLITICS with tags , , , on July 24, 2017 by drjgelb

How to Spot a Psychopath

 

Richard Fidler’s “Conversations” program on ABC Radio National (Australia) today interviewed David Gillespie, author of a new book on how to spot a psychopath at work & at home. Unfortunately, the last five minutes of the program consisted of branding President Trump a psychopath, a disturbing and invalid characterisation. I made the following comment on the show’s Facebook Page:

 

 

“Excellent program let down by mischaracterisation of Donald Trump as a psychopath based on 2nd & 3rd hand, biased reporting & an absence of inclusion of numerous examples of behaviour completely inconsistent with psychopathy. Mainstream media has failed to report the numerous unheralded examples of great generosity displayed by Trump throughout his life. Research will reveal instances of Trump contacting people affected by serious misfortune & providing enormous help anonymously. Several instances have been revealed years later, despite Trump’s wishes to remain anonymous.
Secondly, he has loyal and diverse friendships with people from all walks of life, many whom have complained that the goodness they have witnessed from Trump does not interest the press & is ignored.
Thirdly, psychopaths rarely have successful, confident children, rather they control their kids mercilessly, demand loyalty without reciprocating & suffer inevitable rejection & abandonment by their adult children.
Fourthly, the comments suggesting Trump is a compulsive liar neglects to place this opinion in the proper context of the bottomless pit of lies told by his rival, Hillary Clinton, whose remorseless blame-shifting & dishonesty regarding her private email server, details of the Benghazi attack, destruction of mobile devices and so much more, is much more indicative of psychopathy. Her calling the parents of the murdered Benghazi defenders “liars” after she blamed the attack on an anti-Islamic video when she knew categorically that this was untrue, was one of the lowest & despicable actions of the entire campaign & was much more characteristic of a psychopath. Her laughing comments re winning a case for a rapist of a 13yr old girl were similarly despicable, as was her “we came, we saw, he died” laughter following Gaddafi’s unnecessary removal. Her actions related to arms sales to ISIS were totally reprehensible & her hypocrisy re the sale of 20% of U.S. Uranium to Russia & the acceptance of a $130 million donation to the Clinton Foundation for doing so, was astounding. Failure to mention her husband, psychopath & serial rapist, Bill Clinton, demonstrated the bias that infected the show today.
Lastly, regardless of experience, no diagnostic labels are valid in the absence of a clinician personally interviewing a patient, preferably face to face and supplementing the assessment with a thorough search for corroborative information & 3rd party interviews with relevant informants who have personal knowledge of the subjects life & behaviour. Armchair psychiatrists who provide the press with definitive diagnoses re Trump without such an examination may actually be in breach of their Code of Conduct and various U.S. State Medical Boards have indicated that such practitioners may face investigation and censure.”

“targeted, tortured and killed by her assailant because she was Jewish.”

Posted in CRIME & CORRUPTION, Cultural Marxism, ONLINE DEBATE, PERSONAL with tags , , , , , , , on June 2, 2017 by drjgelb

“As further details emerge of the brutal murder of an Orthodox Jewish woman in a Paris suburb at the hands of a Muslim assailant last month, French Jews are increasingly worried and angered by what one prominent member of the community called an “organised silence” surrounding the case.

Dr. Sarah Halimi — a 66-year-old pensioner living in the Paris suburb of Belleville — was murdered in the early hours of April 4 2017 by Kada Traore, a 27-year-old immigrant from Mali.  After breaking into the neighboring apartment of another Malian family at 4:25 a.m. — whose terrified inhabitants locked themselves away as they heard him recite verses from the Quran — Traore jumped over the balcony and forced his way into Halimi’s apartment. As he beat the elderly lady savagely, her screams prompted neighbours to call the police.

Three officers arrived at 4:45 a.m. But on hearing Traore yelling “Allahu Akhbar!” and “Shaitan!” (Arabic for ‘Satan’), they feared a terrorist attack was taking place, and called for backup. Anti-terror officers did not arrive until 5:00 a.m., by which time Halimi had been thrown by her attacker from the window of her third-floor apartment to the ground below. Traore, reported to be a drug dealer and addict with a criminal record, then returned to the apartment of the Malian family where he resumed his prayers, and was not taken into police custody until almost 6:00 a.m.

Shock over the barbaric nature of the murder has been compounded by the reluctance of both the media and French authorities to recognise it as an antisemitic hate crime — even after a silent march of remembrance on the Sunday after the murder was met by local youths chanting “Death to the Jews” and “We Own Kalashnikovs.”

In an open letter to new French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb, Alexandra Laignel-Lavastine — a French journalist and expert on antisemitism — charged that “in the advanced decadence that reigns today in the country of (antisemitic comedian) Dieudonné, for whom ‘the Jews are dogs’ (and people laugh hysterically), it seems that a run-over dog deserves more attention than a murdered Jewish woman.”

Laignel-Lavastine also quoted William Attal, Halimi’s brother, who stated, “I have waited seven weeks before I said anything. The absolute silence about my sister’s murder has become intolerable.”

Since the murder, official and media accounts of what transpired have played up claims that Traore was suffering from mental illness, while virtually ignoring the antisemitic element of the crime. A common theory is that the recent French election encouraged — in the phrase of Michel Gurfinkiel, a leading French political analyst and president of the Jean-Jacques Rousseau Institute in Paris — an “organized silence” around the Halimi murder.

“Such a story would benefit the Right and the National Front,” Gurfinkiel said. “Everyone is convinced this is why there has been such an organized silence around the story.”

A few days after the murder, Marine Le Pen — the leader of the far-right, anti-immigrant National Front — tweeted that Halimi’s fate made her want to “speak about Islamist antisemitism.” Le Pen was defeated by centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron in the second round of the presidential election on May 7.

“The Jewish community was very careful not to be suspected of siding with Marine Le Pen,” Gurfinkiel said. He also noted that state provision of security to religious buildings and institutions means that Jewish organizations are “reluctant to raise certain questions.”

But as more time passes in the wake of Halimi’s murder, the calls to recognize its antisemitic nature are growing. Interviewed by the Le Parisien newspaper last week, the lawyers for the Halimi family, Jean-Alex Buchinger and David Kaminsky, said in no uncertain terms that Sarah Halimi had been “targeted, tortured and killed by her assailant because she was Jewish.”

Halimi’s murder robbed the Jewish community in Paris of one of its most loved figures, known for her work as a doctor and as a kindergarten teacher. “She was very well known and respected, a great person,” Gurfinkiel said. “The tragedy is that she was living in that part of Paris where Jews are gradually leaving, since the security doesn’t exist anymore.”

It also brought forth reminders of the 2006 kidnapping and murder of a young French Jew, Ilan Halimi — no relation to Ruth Halimi — whose body was left for dead by a mostly-Muslim gang who seized him out of the belief that Jews were wealthy and willing to pay ransom money.

“The French police were of no help during the whole (Ilan Halimi) episode, rejecting any idea that antisemitism could have played a role in the affair and preferring to believe the absurd notion that this was the result of some war between rival gangs,” Laignel-Lavastine noted in her letter about Ruth Halimi to French Interior Minister Collomb. “Ten years later, we have reached the same point.”

Traore is currently undergoing psychiatric tests and Jewish communal leaders are impatient for more information from authorities. “The more time passes, the more the community feels that there is something you do not want to tell us,” commented Joel Mergui, head of the Consistoire — the governing body of French Jewish communities.”

Trump Derangement Syndrome reaches Australia!

c5okdjawqaelwg7Greens Senator Scott Ludlum published the following article on his Medium blog today, titled “Fascism in larval form: Australia and the US in the age of Trump.” I encourage you to read the entire article but you will not be surprised to find that it is a Leftist diatribe by a dedicated parliamentary representative of Australia’s most Left-wing political party holding any electoral seats in the country and is firmly in the  Socialist camp. Here is the article link:

Read on Medium:

I could not resist commenting on this phenomenon of the spread of TDS to Down Under!

MY COMMENT:

“The gnashing of teeth re Donald Trump is enormously disingenuous & pundits must really believe that the informed public have no memory & are morons. We have just emerged from 8yrs of a dismal Presidency under Obama wherein allies were abandoned & enemies feted. 

Where were Progressive voices when Obama supported the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt in the face of its published Jihadist manifesto and its history of having spawned enemies like al Qaeda, Boko Haram, ISIS & dozens of other radical Islamic terrorist organisations? Where were Progressive voices when Obama participated in destroying Libya, when the State Department illegally supplied arms to the very Syrian rebels who became ISIS & its affiliates, when Obama directed the IRS to discriminate & hound conservative taxpayers, when the Obama Admin lied barefaced to the public re Benghazi & that notorious but irrelevant video, when Hillary Clinton revealed herself to be a pathological liar re her private email server & the destruction of State owned documents by the tens of thousands, when Obama betrayed the only democracy in the Middle East in favour of the duplicitous Palestinians whose desire to possess all of Israel & annihilate the Jews is plainly printed in the charters of Hamas & Fatah, when Obama lied to a National audience on the occasion of his first official visit to a Mosque in 2016, saying that Islam comes from the Arabic word for peace when he knows as a student in an Islamic school in Indonesia until age 14yrs that Islam comes from the Arabic word for submission, not peace, or when Obama swore in Congressman Keith Ellison on Jefferson’s famous Qur’an saying that Jefferson greatly admired Islam when reality is that Jefferson bought his Qur’an on his return from meeting with the Pasha of Tripoli in London where he and John Adams were witness to the Pasha reading from the sacred Islamic text that all Muslims were mandated to convert, kill or enslave non-believers. 

Jefferson obtained the Qur’an to determine the nature of an enemy that in 1798 was extorting 10% of the new American Nation’s GDP in return for repatriating pirated and abducted American crews. As a result of what he learned, Jefferson declared war on Tripoli & the Barbary Pirates and sent the fledgling U.S. Navy on its first overseas military mission where it waged a 5yr war, ending in a treaty. 

And where were the Progressive voices when the Clinton Foundation raked in 3 billion dollars in a massive pay to play scam and the Clintons were charging obscene speaking fees & funneling the money to Hillary’s war-purse? 

I could fill a book with scandals & disgraceful conduct of the Obama Administration that cannot possibly be matched in the first 40days of Trump! Currently, Trump has commenced implementation of the greatest number of campaign promises of any former President and has selected a serious, credentialed cabinet picked for their experience, success in achieving their goals and toughness. 

I have no doubt that the Left despise Trump & his team, as they must, because the agenda of the Left, having failed to win hearts & minds by either force or any record of successful governance, must continue to focus on division, identity politics, discord, racialism & interminable virtue signalling from the massive cohort of brainwashed graduates of left dominated faculties in Universities throughout the Union who call themselves Social Justice Warriors and everyone else, racists, bigots, Islamophobes, homophobes and most stupid of all, NAZIS! (who were of course socialists, not fascists……it’s in their name liberals!). Until you balance your anti-Trump bias with an honest critique of his rivals, your efforts will be seen as self-serving and merely leftist propaganda.”

Betrayal Backlash: Obama, Kerry Slammed and Schooled on Israel By Top Senate Democrat – by Guy Benson

30th December 2016

It’s not just conservatives who are furious with the Obama administration’s shameful betrayal of Israel at the United Nations shortly before Christmas — a number of leading Democrats are criticizing the move, which lawmakers on both sides of the aisle say further undermines both Israel’s security, as well as America’s bipartisan pro-Israel consensus. In his long-winded and unproductive speech this week, outgoing Secretary of State John Kerry spent an inordinate amount of time fixating on the issue of Israeli settlements, going out of his way to lambaste the “right-wing” government that Israeli voters have elected:

“The Israeli prime minister publicly supports a two-state solution, but his current coalition is the most right wing in Israeli history, with an agenda driven by the most extreme elements,” Kerry said. “The result is that policies of this government, which the prime minister himself just described as more committed to settlements than any in Israel’s history, are leading in the opposite direction. They’re leading towards one state.” Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Kerry pointedly noted, opposes a two-state solution, as do other members of the governing coalition.

Many Israelis see the two-state solution as an unrealistic pipe dream so long as Palestinians doggedly refuse to even recognize Israel as a Jewish state at all, with less than a quarter of Palestinians polled in favor of an outcome in which Israel has the right to exist as a Jewish nation.  Indeed, Kerry had barely finished speaking when a Palestinian official reiterated his side’s opposition to Israel’s existence, saying that the Secretary of State’s words changed nothing.  Those stark realities notwithstanding, Kerry invoked the word “settlements” more than 40 times during his address, while mentioning “Hamas” just four times. A few thoughts:

(1) It’s difficult to overstate the backwardness of a worldview that obsesses over Israel’s settlements — including housing developments within the Jewish Quarter of its own capital city — while paying relatively scant attention to the Palestinians’ anti-peace extremism. They will not recognize Israel as a legitimate Jewish state. They will not foreswear violence. They will not stop teaching their children to hate Israel and glorify the killing of Jews. They will not stop calling for the destruction of the state of Israel. These are the true, intransigent, violent barriers to peace, not Israeli settlements. These truths should be very obvious — and they have been to US policymakers for decades. That’s why the United States has always held the United Nations’ virulently anti-Israel jackals at bay in Security Council proceedings. Until this administration’s disgraceful abstention and alleged whipping of anti-Israel votes among other members last week, that is.

(2) Perhaps voters in Israel elected a harder-line government (in spite of, or perhaps because of, accusations of Obama administration meddling against Benjamin Netanyahu, whom Obama reportedly loathes) due to a prevailing suspicion that the Obama White House does not have Israel’s back. Obama has a long history of pandering to Israel’s adversaries, then brokered a disastrous nuclear deal with Iran, which Israel’s leaders understandably view as an existential threat to their people. Is it any wonder that faced with these global headwinds and historically-hostile American posture, Israeli voters would err on the side of electing a muscular government that prioritizes the safety and security of its citizens? The Obama administration has actively helped to isolate Israel on the world stage, and Israelis doesn’t trust American leadership right now. Kerry’s bemoaning of their electoral decisions is therefore ironic; Obama’s actions empowered the so-called “hardliners.”

(3) Crucially, there is a very relevant (and fairly recent) history lesson here that is evidently lost on Obama and Kerry’s “Smart Power” set.  It lays bear the foolishness and myopia of the ‘settlements’ tunnel vision. We’ve seen this movie before, and some of us remember how it played out — including incoming Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer. It’s astonishing that this even needs to be said, but it does:

Israel’s government unilaterally uprooted all settlements in Gaza back in 2005, forcibly removing thousands of its citizens from their homes in pursuit of peace. After the Israelis fully withdrew, the Palestinians in Gaza burned all Israeli remnants (including valuable resources) to the ground, then elected Hamas terrorists as their “government,” which has fired thousands of rockets at Israeli civilians and constructed terror tunnels.
Settlements are not blocking peace. The Palestinians are, because their leadership in Gaza and the West Bank — who have joined together on a number of occaions to form pro-terror unity governments — do not want peace.  Which is why the Obama administration’s decision to make Israel’s life even harder by validating Palestinian narratives among the international community is so reckless and indefensible.
