The same British that stood strong against the German Jackboot are now slavishly welcoming Islamic Dhimmitude.
If that’s what they’re choosing to do with their ‘freedom’ what a tragic waste of blood and treasure it was to stay ‘free’ in the first place.
The one leader who recognized the Nazi threat long before it was big enough to cause real trouble warned about another threat as well. That warning — like the one he gave about Hitler — was willfully ignored by a nation which avoids talking about hard truths.
We’ll return to his warnings about Islam shortly. First, we’ll deal with the consequence of those warnings being ignored.
Our very notion of freedom, as it now exists, could never have taken its current form were it not for the influence of the Magna Carta, and some others of England’s contributions to philosophy, rights, and political thinking.
But they’ve fallen a long way down since then, and have abandoned that birthright.
One woman, facing the threat of death in her native Pakistan, and now acquitted of blasphemy, faces the threat of being beheaded by her own countrymen because she’s a Christian who ‘insulted’ Islam.
How did she ‘insult’ Islam? Here’s the short version.
One summer morning in Pakistan, a Christian woman named Asia Bibi took a break from her fieldwork to drink a cup of cold water from a well. Since she was a Christian, the Muslim women there saw her actions as contaminating the water. Angered, the women began to argue with her. Bibi asked them, “I believe in my religion and in Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for the sins of mankind. What did your Prophet Muhammad ever do to save mankind?”
Her question made the women furious. Bibi was beaten by a crowd and thrown into prison, accused of blasphemy and sentenced to death. She has been held since June 2009, and has become an international symbol of the capriciousness and cruelty of the Pakistani blasphemy law. Two Pakistani officials who spoke up for Bibi have been assassinated.

She was on Death Row until she was set free earlier this year. To say the locals didn’t take it well was an understatement.
The court, in a three-member bench led by the chief justice, Saqib Nisar, ordered Bibi’s release on Wednesday morning in Islamabad. By the afternoon, thousands of club-wielding demonstrators had blocked highways, burned tyres and pelted police with stones in major cities including Islamabad and Karachi.
Publication of the 56-page ruling was delayed for three weeks after blasphemy campaigners promised to “paralyse” the country and kill the judges if they did not uphold Bibi’s death sentence.
In a televised address after the verdict’s release, the prime minister, Imran Khan, issued a strong defence of the decision, terming it “according to the constitution and Pakistan’s constitution is according to the teachings of Islam”.
And KILL THE JUDGES.
Well, THEY seem nice.
For some inexplicable reason, she went looking for a different country to call home.
She wanted to go to the UK.
But the country that has welcomed at least half of the 850 Syrian fighters that fought with ISIS back home again is saying ‘no’ to Asia Bibi.
The Foreign Office has been accused of allowing government asylum policy to be dictated to by a Pakistan mob after it was confirmed it urged the Home Office not to grant Asia Bibi political asylum in the UK out of fear for the safety of UK consular staff.
Tom Tugendhat, the foreign affairs select committee chair, asked the Foreign Office permanent secretary, Sir Simon McDonald, whether the episode “does not raise the question that either staff should be withdrawn or security increased or otherwise UK policy is effectively dictated to by a mob?”.
Completely gutless. Compare that to Churchill’s assessment of Islam.
Indeed it is evident that Christianity, however degraded and distorted by cruelty and intolerance, must always exert a modifying influence on men’s passions, and protect them from the more violent forms of fanatical fever, as we are protected from smallpox by vaccination. But the Mahommedan religion increases, instead of lessening, the fury of intolerance. It was originally propagated by the sword, and ever since its votaries have been subject, above the people of all other creeds, to this form of madness.
Seizing their weapons, they become Ghazis—as dangerous and as sensible as mad dogs: fit only to be treated as such.
Thus whole nations are roused to arms. Thus the Turks repel their enemies, the Arabs of the Soudan break the British squares, and the rising on the Indian frontier spreads far and wide. In each case civilisation is confronted with militant Mahommedanism. 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.
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.

Between Churchill and the Multi-Culti Progressive, whose understanding of Islam would accurately predict Asia Bibi’s situation?
Because whichever one has the better predictive power is more likely to be true.
