The Relevant Muslims

[COMMENT:  a German's reflections on Islam today.  On target.  We must work hard to convince the "moderates" to stand up to the radicals.  We have no reason to truth the moderates until they stop being self-centered comfort-seekers.     E. Fox]

This is by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read. The author of this email is said to be Dr. Emanuel Tanay, a well known and well respected psychiatrist.

Whether or  not the origin/author is authentic is not relevant.  The logic and import stand alone.

  A German's View on Islam
     A man, whose family was German aristocracy  prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were
 true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism. 'Very few people were
 true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen.  Then, before we knew
 it, they owned us, and we hade lost control, and the end of the world had come.
 My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.'
     We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace.
Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is
 meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectra of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.
     The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout
 Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor- kill.   It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque.
      It is the fanatics who zealously spread the  stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals.  It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and  to become suicide bombers.
     The hard quantifiable fact is that the peaceful  majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and  extraneous.
     Communist Russia comprised  Russians who  just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian  Communists were responsible for the murder of about  20 million people. The peaceful majority were  irrelevant.
     China's huge population was peaceful as well,  but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering  70 million people.
     The average Japanese individual prior to World  War II was not a warmongering sadist.  Yet, Japan  murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians;
 most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.
     And, who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?
     History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our posers of reason we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.
      Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.
     Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.

     As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts; the fanatics who threaten our way of life.
