In the spirit of Gen. George S. Patton and Sir Winston Churchill, Army Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin’s first words to his audience set the tone for the lecture: “Do we have any Muslims in here?” he asked. “Who is in here to cause trouble?”
“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” – Gen. George S. Patton
Press Connects–Army Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin’s first words to an audience on Friday set the tone for the three-part lecture on current events and military history he will give this weekend at the Owego Treadway Inn.
Boykin’s talk on Friday was the first of his three-part discussion, “America and the Greatest Threat of our Time.” His lecture will continue with the second and third installments today at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. at the Owego Treadway Inn.
“I believe today we face as great a threat as we faced in 1776,” Boykin said. “The situation in America is much far more serious than most Americans realize, and there’s no longer any excuse for not knowing.” That threat, he said, is Islam.
“You need to remember one thing from tonight’s presentation,” Boykin told the audience. “Their objective is to replace our Constitution with Sharia Law.”
Boykin spent 36 years in the Army, retiring as a lieutenant general in 2007. He was the U.S. undersecretary of defense for intelligence during part of the George W. Bush administration. Boykin also was an original member of the Army’s elite special operations unit, Delta Force. He either commanded or served on Delta Force missions in Iran, Grenada, Columbia and Somalia.
He was the Army’s mission commander during the Battle of Mogadishu in 1993, depicted in the movie “Black Hawk Down.” He said his experiences on these missions have led him to believe that Islam poses a threat to America.
“You need to understand that this is a war of ideology — it’s not a war of Islam versus Christianity,” Boykin said. “This is a war of Islam against everybody that is not submitted to Allah. Now because most of the world is Christian, it falls out that most of the people who are under persecution, or the targets of Islam, are Christians.”
“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.” –Sir Winston Churchill
