Jihadists Fail

For some reason I felt the need to post this video. It’s from a movie titled The Four Feathers. It featured Heath Ledger well before he was The Joker. It was a rather good movie but more importantly perhaps spoke of a time when Britain policed the world rather than us.

The rampaging Mahdi mob (jihadists) does not do so well against the British  square.

  1. This brings this back to mind – A quote from an 1899 book by Winston Churchill, “The River War”, in which he describes Muslims he apparently observed during Kitchener’s campaign in the Sudan”
    “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. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; 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.

    • I am amazed but should not be that so many of my countrymen are entirely ignorant of history, especially the history of Islam and not get.. Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith…and jihad, passive or otherwise is the goal, period.

      Churchill was something else, a pain in the read end to us at times during the war, but usually right 🙂 The world could use a leader like that. Our guy wants to give the jihadists a hug and blame some stupid movie no one has seen. It’s just nuts not to mention incredibly naive.

      Well, I gotta go do a wedding rehearsal. Thanks Rob.

  2. Yes, I really think the world could do with another Churchill or even a Bismarck.
