The Young Winston Churchill on Islam ….

Posted on December 18, 2014. Filed under: Books, Great Writing, Personalities | Tags: , , , |

Islam is noted for many things – among which are its ferocity as well as wide following. Edward Gibbon has covered it very well and we have a few posts from his work .Here is however the young Winston Churchill in an extract from his book, “The River War”.

“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 sensualist 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 Muslims 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.
 .
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 ”

A Clever Lawyer gets tripped up …

Posted on December 6, 2014. Filed under: American Thinkers, Guide Posts, Light plus Weighty |

This is a true story which won First Place in Criminal Lawyers Award. It took place in Charlotte, North Carolina.

A lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive cigars, then insured them against, among other things, fire.
Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these great cigars, the lawyer filed a claim against the insurance company.

 In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost ‘in a series of small fires.’ The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious  reason, that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion. 
The lawyer sued and WON! 
 
Delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance company that the claim was frivolous. 
The judge stated that never the less, the lawyer held a policy from the company in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without defining what is considered to be unacceptable ‘fire’ and hence was obligated to pay the claim.


The insurance company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000 to the lawyer for his loss of the cigars that perished in the ‘fires’.

After the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON!!! 

With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine.

26/11 and Sonia Gandhi …

Posted on December 3, 2014. Filed under: Indian Thought |

It is 6 years after the tragedy of 26/11. On that day, the following article indicted Sonia Gandhi. 
Posted on November 26, 2014 by François Gautier  J’ACCUSE.
 (In 1898, French writer Emile Zola wrote an open letter to the then French President in the newspaper L’Aurore, titled “J’accuse” (‘I accuse’). In this 4000 words article, he accused the French Government of bias and anti-Semitism towards a Jewish officer unfairly condemned for treason).

It seems it is time that the people of India have the nerve to say openly that which many, including within the Congress, think secretly and may utter in the privacy of their chambers.

It is not about Manmohan Singh, it is not even about Shivraj Patil, who has been made the fall guy, it is about that one person who is the Eminence Grise of India. 
 
She, who pulls all the strings, She whose shadow looms menacingly over so many, She who holds no portfolio, is just a simple elected MP, like 540 others, but rules like an Empress.

Sometimes, one’s very physical presence at the top is enough to move things, to influence the course of events. One word from Her, a glance, a frown, are enough to put the whole heavy, inert, unwilling machinery of India’s bureaucracy and political system in full motion. 
 
Sometimes She need not say anything: in the true tradition of Bhakti, Her ministers, Her secretaries, interpret Her silences and rush to please Her, to cater to Her western and Christian identity.

But nevertheless, she has said and acted enough so that one day it can come out in the open and that she may stand accused on the pages of History for what she must have done to India’s soul.

J’accuse Sonia Gandhi to be responsible for the tragedy of the Mumbai attacks, having totally emasculated India’s Intelligence Agencies by stopping them to go full blast on the investigations of the previous terror attacks in the last four years, including the Mumbai train blasts.
 .
Did the US send a warning to India that there may be an attack on Mumbai and that the Taj would be one of the targets, as Praveen Swami of the Hindu reported?
 .
I accuse Sonia and her government to have made the NSG the laughing stock of the world.  How many times did the NSG (who took ten hours to reach Mumbai) claim that it had sanitized the Taj and that the operation was over – and how many times, a bomb went off immediately after, or firing resumed? Some smart journalist should make a record of all the NSG statements, plus Government of Maharashtra press releases and tally them with facts, it would make a very interesting read! 
The NSG should be disbanded immediately: for the last twenty years, it has guarded VIP’s and has become soft and inefficient: see the comments of the Israeli terror specialists, who said that the NSG should have first sanitized the immediate surroundings of the places of conflict, kept the bystanders and press (who gave terrorists a watching TV in the Tridents and Taj rooms a perfect report of the security forces whereabouts), gathered enough information about the position of the terrorists and hostages, before taking action, instead of immediately engaging fire with the terrorists, creating havoc and ensuring the deaths of so many of the hostages.
 .
I accuse Sonia to have weakened India’s spirit of sacrifice and courage, so that 20 terrorists (or maybe less) held at ransom the financial capital of India, the combined forces of the Mumbai police the NSG and the army and an entire nation, for more than three days.
.
I accuse Sonia Gandhi of taking advantage of India’s undue fascination with the Gandhi name and its stupid mania for the White Skin.
.
J’accuse Sonia of exploiting the Indian Press’ obsession for her. She had hardly ever given an interview in 20 years, except scripted ones to NDTV, yet the Press always protects her, never blames her and keeps under silence her covert role, including now, after the Mumbai attacks.
 .
J’accuse Sonia and her government of trying to make heroes of subservient and inefficient men, so as to hide the humiliation of Mumbai 26/11. Before going to his death, Hemant Karkare, the ATS chief, was shown on television clumsily handling his helmet, as someone who uses it very rarely. 
.
Why did he die of bullet wounds in his chest when he was wearing a bulletproof vest? Either Indian bulletproof vests are inferior quality or he was just not wearing it. 
How is it possible that the terrorists who killed him and his fellow officer escaped in the same vehicle, used by ATS chief? Why did he and his officers go in the Cama hospital without ascertaining where the terrorists were holing? 
.
We honour his death, but these facts say a lot about the battle-readiness of the ATS. 
Will someone of the Congress, someone who feels more Indian than faithful to Sonia, dare to stand up and to speak the truth?
 .
I am sure that Sonia Gandhi has good qualities: she probably was a good wife to Rajiv, a good daughter in law to Indira – and by all accounts, she is a good mother to her children, judging by the way they dote on her. One also hears first-hand reports about her concern for smaller people, her dignity in the suffering that befell her when her husband was blown to pieces, and her courtesy with visitors.
.
But nevertheless, she is a danger to India. Her very presence, both physical and occult, open the doors to forces which are inimical to India, whether, westernization, Christian conversions or Islamic terrorism. 
 .
For the good of India, her civilization, her immense spirituality and culture, Sonia Gandhi has to go and a Government which thinks Indian, which breathes nationalism and protection of its citizens, be voted to power.
