It’s amazing how often history repeats itself. The long quote below from one of Winston Churchill’s most famous speeches could be today’s headlines, if Islam’s war against us were recognized officially as a war and a few locations were changed.
How should we respond to “Version 2.0” of World War Two? The parallels are amazing, as you’ll see in Churchill’s speech. But is the situation the same in essence?
If not, we may need to respond differently. I believe that, although shockingly similar in appearance, our situation is radically different in essence. If so, it calls for a different set of priorities. But first let’s decide if the situation is the same on essence.
Now for a few words from one of Earth’s great leaders, Sir Winston Churchill:
The Lights are Going Out, 1938
All the world wishes for peace and security. Have we gained it by the sacrifice of the Czechoslovak Republic? Here was the model democratic State of Central Europe, a country where minorities were treated better than anywhere else. It has been deserted, destroyed and devoured. It is now being digested. The question which is of interest to a lot of ordinary people, common people, is whether this destruction of the Czechoslovak Republic will bring upon the world a blessing or a curse.
