General Patton on Arabs and Islam

General George S. PattonI can't let pass this quote, since it is apropos of the current discussion subjects on this blog:
"One cannot but ponder the question: What if the Arabs had been Christians? To me it seems certain that the fatalistic teachings of Mohammed and the utter degradation of women is the outstanding cause for the arrested development of the Arab. He is exactly as he was around the year 700, while we have kept on developing. Here, I think, is some text for an eloquent sermon on the virtues of Christianity." -- War as I knew it, General George S. Patton, Jr.
