Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace

Here's a quote from one of the greatest men that Europe has ever produced, Sir Winston Churchill.(H.T. The American Thinker) The saddest thing is that under current law in England, Churchill would be prosecuted for 'hate-speech' against Muslims.
"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 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 civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."
-Sir Winston Churchill (The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages248-50 (London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899).
Radical Islam must be seen for what it is, a repressive violent religion that preaches hate and death as one of its most basic tenets, not a religion of peace. We must realize that we are at war with people who think they are acting on God's will and all those who do not think as they do are deserved of nothing but death. Western people must stop being afraid of hurting other peoples' feelings and beliefs and start calling the followers of today's form of perverted Islam the savage barbarians that they are. Tolerance and understanding in the name of diversity and inclusion, as practiced by the 'enlightened' institutions of the West, gets us nowhere with these people and only invites further violence.
The Islamists are attempting to cow us into a state of self-imposed Shari'a law by their violent, coordinated outbursts in response to some cartoons and it seems that many in government and the MSM, both in Europe and the U.S.A., are all to willing to give them what they want. This is a fight that we must not lose. If we show the Islamists that we will cave into their riots, like the French did this past fall, then they will see it as further signs of the West's weakness and continue their assaults on our way of life. Make no mistake that the jihadis are waging a holy war against what they view as the heretical West and that they will stop at nothing to impose their way of thinking on the entire world. We free people of the West must wake up and defend our culture and freedoms with the same zeal and sense of purpose as those who wish to destroy us or risk losing everything we hold dear.
