Churchill Was a Great Leader, But He Was Not Perfect.

in response to reader comment: Churchill believed in The Protocols and The Jewish Conspiracy and called atheist Jews "malevolent evil"

Churchill was human and saw the evils of Nazism before others and spoke out before others. But he was a product of his times and the Church of England and acquired some false beliefs about Jews. He also had them about the Roman Catholic Irish and he had planned a massive of killing of the Roman Catholic Irish in 1916. Genocide might be to strong of word to use for this massive killing, but then maybe not. This is what precipitated the "Easter Rising" when the word got out. My Grandfather and his 4 brothers and their cousins were involved and they stayed involved until Ireland was free. Actually my ancestors started fighting the Crown in the 1640s and didn't stop until Ireland was free.

The purpose of that is to show I have no reason to defend Churchill. Churchill also warned about the dangers posed by the Wahabbis in 1921 in a speech to Parliament. Something to the effect that their grandchildren & great-grandchildren would be fighting them.
