Since Churchill has been mentioned, and a line from 'The River War alluded to, which speaks there of 'Christianity' being 'sheltered in the strong arms of science' as it goes up against the Mohammedan Mob, a line not irrelevant (for Christianity is born from a Jewish matrix, and western civilisation, as Tom Cahill points out in 'The Gifts of the Jews', is unimaginable without certain insights from the House of Israel) to the present conflict in Gaza... here is something else, also from Churchill's thoughts on Islam, that is deeply relevant today.
From 'The Story of the Malakand Field Force' (Malakand being in the old North-West Frontier of British India, the heavily Islamised region that is now part of Pakistan, bordering on Afghanistan), on what happens when the cry of Jihad is raised:
"...the Mahommedan reliigion 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.
"In a moment, the fruits of patient toil, the prospects of material prosperity, the fear of death itself, are flung aside.
"The more emotional Pathans are powerless to resist. All rational considerations are forgotten. Seizing their weapons, they become Ghazis - as dangerous and as sensible as mad dogs, fit only to be treated as such.
While the more generous spirits among the tribesmen become convulsed in an ecstasy of religious bloodhirstiness, poorer and more material souls derive additional impulses from the influence of others, the hopes of plunder and the joy of fighting.
"Thus whole nations are raised 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 [that is, Islam - CM] is face to face with that of peace.
"Luckily, the religion of peace is usually the better armed".
And now, back to something else from 'The River War' that is apposite for today, not only on the borders of Israel, but in other places where peaceful, productive human societies - and virtually all non-Muslim human societies are so, when one contrasts them with the suspicion and aggression, the chaos, the stunted minds and ultra-violence of the dar al Islam - are assailed by the neverending Jihad:
"No terms but fight or death were offered. No reparation or apology could be made.
"The red light of retribution played on the bayonets and the lances, and civilization - elsewhere sympathetic, merciful, tolerant, ready to discuss or argue, eager to avoid violence, to submit to law, to effect a compromise - here advanced with an expression of inexorable sternness, and rejecting all other courses, offered only the arbitration of the sword".
'Sympathetic, merciful, tolerant, ready to discuss or argue, eager to avoid violence, to submit to law, to effect a compromise'...if ever that was a description of a human gestalt, it is a description of Israel and of the people of Israel, the Jews; perhaps even more truthfully said of them, than of Christianised nations or, further afield, of the Buddhist and Hindu nations.
But they have come to the end of their patience.
And the best thing that the rest of the non-Muslim world could do, would be to stand back, get out of the way, refrain from weeping over the deaths of murderous Mohammedan mobsters who are high as kites on genocidal Jew-hatred, and let Israel do what they must to end the menace; until Jihad Armed Camp Gaza (with its hysterical mobs which include people capable of saying things like this - "Praise be to you, our Lord [i.e. allah - CM], you have made our killing of the Jews an act of worship through which we come closer to you" ) is nothing but a smoking ruin and all its inhabitants possessing a particle of commonsense have decamped to join their murderous Jew-hating brethren in Islamic Egypt.

I remembered the tune, but misrembered some of the lyrics:

Toumen, Tümen, Tuman, Tumen, Let's Call The Whole Invasion Of Western Europe Thing Off
Just wanted to say how much I appreciated the above comment referencing of the murder of my envoys by Muslims.
And here's a little something which I like to call, "Powers of Tümen":
Btw., please tell your prospective Secretary of State, John Kerry, that if he mispronounces my name* again, I'll see to it that he hears The Secret Song of the Mongols in Hell - forever.
