Peace Loving Muslims Are Irrelevant

Posted on January 15, 2009. Filed under: Contemporary Religion, Islam, Political Issues |

Thursday, January 15, 2008– We all get dozens of chain e-mails every week (day?) and some are just fluffy, nice, emotional stories and some are serious, thoughtful pieces while some may be made up from whole cloth. I am going to do something I have never done on a post before and totally copy an email sent to me by my father in law. The guy’s name and address are on the e-mail so I hope it is real. The letter makes a LOT of sense and should be read every Westerner.

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.

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 had 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 was comprised of
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
powers 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.

Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes
this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness
that allows the problems to expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send
this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world wide, read
this and think about it, and send it on – before it’s too late.

Well said Dr. Tanay! The West needs to seriously wake up.
