A German's View on Islam

bject: Fw: The most profound message I've ever sent

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.

The author of this email is purported 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 passivity that allows the
problems to expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on!
Let us hope that thousands, worldwide, read this and think about it, and send it
on - before it's too late.
