Last week, the British Press reported that fast food giant Subway has removed ham and bacon from 200 outlets, and switched to preparing meat according to halal (Muslim) rules, to please its Muslim customers. This means that after the butcher shouts “Allah Akbar,” he slaughters the animal by slitting its throat and windpipe causing it to bleed to death.
How would Winston Churchill have reacted to the news?
Winston Churchill referring to Islam, in 1889, wrote, “No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.” And at the 1921 Cairo Conference, commented: “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 … Austere, intolerant, well armed, and bloodthirsty.”
The Ottoman Empire aligned itself with Germany in WWI and declared jihad against France and Great Britain. Just a few decades later, Muslims of the Middle East again aligned with Germany against the West. The Grand Mufti of Arab Palestine al-Husseini served as a Nazi propagandist, encouraging Muslims in Europe to lead armed revolts and attacks on Allied interests.
Churchill took the lead in warning about Nazi Germany. His steadfast refusal to surrender inspired the British resistance to Hitler during the difficult early days of the War when Britain stood alone. For his wisdom and courage as a defender of freedom, Churchill was the first person to be made an honorary citizen of the United States.
Fortunately, in WWI and WWII our military might defeated German and Muslim alliances.
