"V" for Victory! It was on JULY 19, 1941, that British Prime Minister Winston Churchill held up two fingers as a sign of victory.

It became a symbol for all Western European resistance during WWII, with V's painted on walls and over Nazi posters.



In From War to War (Second World War, 1958, Vol. 1, ch. 4, p. 50), Winston Churchill described Hitler's Mein Kampf as:

"...the new Koran of faith and war: turgid, verbose, shapeless, but pregnant with its message."



Before the House of Commons, June 18, 1940, Churchill warned:

"I expect that the Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilization...

The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us. Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this Island or lose the war."



Churchill continued:

"If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands.

But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science."



Winston Churchill concluded:

"Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.'"

American Minute - Notable Events of American Significance Remembered on the Date They Occurred


Earlier in his career, 1897-1898, Winston Churchill fought in northwest India, Egypt and Sudan, serving under the command of General Herbert Kitchener. 

As quoted by Stanely Kurtz in "Tribes of Terror" (Claremont Review, 2007/2008), Churchill described Islam as a:

"...system of ethics, which regards treachery and violence as virtues rather than vices."




Churchill returned to Britain and penned a two-volume work, The (Nile) River War, in which he wrote:

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!...

The fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog...
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."




Churchill continued:

"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...but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it."

Churchill concluded:

"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."
