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 war mongering 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.
