Indeed I have: “Civilisation is confronted with militant Mahommedanism. The forces of progress clash with those of reaction. The religion of blood and war is face to face with that of peace. Luckily the religion of peace is usually the better armed.”- Churchill Compare with a description of Arabs by a 4th century historian called Ammianus Marcellinus: "The inhabitants of all the districts are savage & warlike, & take such pleasure in war & conflict, that one who loses his life in battle is regarded as happy beyond all others. For those who depart from this life by a natural death they assail with insults, as degenerate & cowardly... we never found (them) desirable as friends or enemies."
