in response to reader comment: What Our Forebearers Knew

Tom Dundee,

Thanks for your important comment.

I've been very interested in collecting thoughts from earlier political leaders and thinkers who showed far more insight and realism about the nature of Islam than ALL the major figures of BOTH parties show today. You gave a good quote from Hillaire Belloc. Could you give the quotes from Gladstone, Churchill in 1920 (I have his powerful warning about islam in his 1900 book about the Mahdi war in Egypt), and more info from that 1910 conference?
