UK’s Express claims Churchill had “fascination with Islam,” may have converted to Islam

Yesterday I noted the Western intelligentsia’s seemingly endless “capacity for self-flagellation and self-hatred.” Another manifestation of the same tendency is what we can call the Jefferson’s Qur’an Effect: claiming that public figures of the past who had any interest in Islam for any reason, even if they publicly expressed negative views of the religion, were actually enthralled by the religion and may even have been secret converts.

Here is the reality of what Churchill thought of Islam, whatever “fascination” he may have had, or how often he wore Arabic clothing: “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.”

But the Express, like the rest of the British media, is trying to make British people love Islam, so that they will complacently accept mass Muslim migration and the increasing presence of jihad terror and Sharia oppression of women and others in British society. Only ten paragraphs down in this story do they tell us that “”Churchill never seriously considered converting.” Thanks for the information.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
