It's interesting to compare Churchill's masterly and deservedly quotable summary of the effects of Islam upon humans, here, with the words of the Jewish writer, A Carlebach, in Ma'ariv, October 7, 1955, words also deserving to be much more widely known; indeed, like Churchill's, requiring almost to be committed to memory by all sensible Infidels, especially those in our diplomatic corps and our defence forces.
You can see the great English soldier/ journalist, observer of 'South Asian' and Arab-African Muslim behaviour in Afghanistan, India and Sudan, and the obscure Jew, observer of Arab Muslim behaviour in and around the land of Israel, reaching precisely identical conclusions.
"These Arab Islamic countries do not suffer from poverty, or disease, or illiteracy, or exploitation; they only suffer from the worst of all plagues: Islam.
"Wherever Islamic psychology rules, there is the inevitable rule of despotism and criminal aggression.
‘The danger lies in Islamic psychology, which cannot integrate itself into the world of efficiency and progress, that lives in a world of illusion, perturbed by attacks of inferiority complexes and megalomania, lost in dreams of the holy sword.
‘The danger stems from the totalitarian conception of the world, the passion for murder deeply rooted in their blood, from the lack of logic, the easily inflamed brains, the boasting, and above all: the blasphemous disregard for all that is sacred to the civilized world...their reactions -- to anything -- have nothing to do with good sense.
"They are all emotion, unbalanced, instantaneous, senseless. It is always the lunatic that speaks from their throat.
"You can talk 'business' with everyone, and even with the devil. But not with Allah...This is what every grain in this country shouts. There were many great cultures here, and invaders of all kinds. All of them -- even the Crusaders -- left signs of culture and blossoming. But on the path of Islam, even the trees have died."
(He then goes on to identify Islam, Islam, Islam as the source of Arab Muslim hostility toward the Jewish state, but I won't quote that part now; what's relevant here is his ruthless diagnosis of the typical state of mind that Islam induces in human beings, and the outward fruit of that, over time - "on the path of Islam, even the trees have died".
A Carlebach and Sir Winston Churchill would, I think, have understood each other very well.
