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 show what our attitude, as
Americans, should be 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. Soon they not only controlled us, they
also owned us. Our banks, what was taught in schools, our businesses, our government, our hospitals,
They controlled every part of our life.”
Then, before we knew it, they owned everything we had, and we owned nothing. 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." It was almost like
being told when to get up and when to go to bed, like you were a child. We were
not allowed to own firearms, Nazis’ controlled the doctors, hospitals, news papers, and
all businesses. They controlled every part of our lives.
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 to what is happening in the world today. It is worthless and
hollow talk , meant to make us feel better, and meant to
somehow diminish our worries about the band of fanatics rampaging across the world in
the name of Islam. It is called being deceived!
The true 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 and methodically
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, intimidated, scared, or else unconnected to the
problem. They think that it is not pertinent to them. How foolish.
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 was 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 and neither here nor there
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
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. Are you getting the point. 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 not real is contributing to the passiveness
that allows the problems to expand. So, extend yourself a bit and reach out to all
free people before it is too late. Send this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands,
worldwide, will stand up and not be silent before it's too late.
And remember, the first thing the fanatics will do to the silent
majority is to disarm them.
