The Irrelevant Silent Majority

A German's View Of Islam

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.

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
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.

Emanuel Tanay, M.D.
