Winston Churchill On Islam

I've heard our leaders speak of Islam as a peaceful religion. In hearing this, I wondered what was said in the past by one of the greatest leaders.

What did Otto Bauer, the Nazi leader in Austria, say?

Thus Marxism finds it easy to ally with Islamic zealotism. Full of pride the Marxist Otto Bauer cries: "In Turkestan and Azerbaijan monuments to Marx stand opposite the mosques, and the Mullah in Persia mingles quotations from Marx with passages from the Koran when he calls the people to the Holy War against European Imperialism." See Otto Bauer, "Marx als Mahnung" in Der Kampf, XVI, 1923, p. 83.
