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.'Does this move you in any which way? Please pass it on. If we've been friends and you want to know more, just email me. Do NOT try to pretend you know me by pretending you are one of the people on my sidebar. I know every one's email, so I will find you out and turn you over to the FBI. So don't even try me.
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 specter 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.
With that said, please try to conceive of all this man has lived through. Put yourself in his shoes if only in your imagination. Would you be able to pull yourself yourself together after seeing some of your family members butchered? Starved?
I can't even imagine it, I must admit. How awfully cruel people can be. This is what we are facing today. I know many Muslims who are peaceful, and they are trying to have their voices heard. The dinosaur media refuses to interview them or allow them to speak up when they have CAIR-the unindicted co-conspirators-are chosen to speak up about anything and everything Muslim.
This is the creeping of Political Islam in America. This is what many of my Muslim friends have warn me. They keep trying warn anyone who will listen, because they love America and want to see our freedoms and Liberty stay out of the hands of these crazy people like OBL. Will anyone listen in time?
The silent majority which has been awakened at this time needs to demand that we hear the other side. Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser is just one such person who has been trying to voice heard. He has a site called American Islamic Foundation for Democracy. Please visit his site. It is okay to be skeptical. Just read what he is saying.
How can they win the argument when we demand they speak up and when they do, we don't listen? Please. At least read what he has written. He IS speaking up. Are you going to decide we should remain ignorant so that the terror monsters can win? Is that your decision? It is NOT mine.
Yes, I read with skepticism, but I also learn. At learn he is trying. There are many more.
The Spirit of Man is one of my favorite blogs. 'Winston' is so much more American than some of the idiots we have in Hollyweird, yet he is an Iranian who lives in Canada. Read his blog, please. Then tell me you don't believe him! I'll tell you that you are wrong. He is a great guy. :)
There are many Iraqis, Egyptians, Lebanese, Syrians, Iranians, and Afghanistanis who have blogs. They have been trying to reach out, but no one is listening. Or are we? I know the Admistration is not! Have a great day.
May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again. Digg!
