  1. In the circles of the nascent Resistance to Islamisation, the Churchillian passage about Islam as retrograde force – a passage present in the original 1899 “The River War”, but excised from all the later much-abridged editions – is quite well known. Less well known is another passage that bears repeating today, in the light of events in Paris and elsewhere.

    “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 to 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.”

    Perhaps someone might consider translating that into French.
