The Silent Majority

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.

Mods, please don't be one of the silent majority and delete this out of hand, it deserves to be discussed.

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 spectre 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 honour-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.

Makes sense to me...

and the Americans, and the Israelies, French, Dutch, etc.

In short, all nations have probably been guilty of some sort of genocidic behaviour.
bet the spell checker couldn't cope with that one. ;)

Wasn't that the B-side to 'Once In A Lifetime' ???

Alrite, this post reminds me of two things. First one is, it's not sensible to talk politics because you will always upset someone. Second one is I must be a complete idiot since I just can't resist...

Well, I gotta be honest here. The Islam threat is big-time overplayed. How many radical muslims have tried to convert you to Islam lately, or told you that you will be subservient to a Sharia court?

None? Me either. They are a minor faction in this country, we are not sleep walking into anything. There is also a large, large resentment of what they represent in this country, you are one of them. You self describe as the silent majority. If there was any REAL threat of Islam being anything more than a minor side show (attempt to bomb a plane every couple of years, manage to crash a car into an airport with all the finesse of a 10 year old now and again) then there is just no way the British public would accept that.

There would be a transition period between "then" and "now", and it is simply so alien to our culture, during the transition period, before it became "now" when we would be the "silent majority" again, many, including myself, would be more than willing to use violence - the language everyone speaks, even before money, to prevent it happening.

Mostly to me it seems Islam is an excuse for stupid democracy eroding laws against i.e. taking photographs which aren't necessary to protect anyone.

That's a very dumb thing to say about 1.5 (ish) billion people. You are lumping them all together, which is like saying that all Irish people are terrorists.
