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, 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 is
contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to
expand.

Let's hope we read it ourselves, so this nation of "peace loving Christians" can quit killing everybody we come into contact with. So far this century, WE have killed a LOT more people than the Muslims have. Just who is threatening whose way of life? This analysis very conveniently leaves out the horrible violence unleashed in the Middle East by the United States of America.

All monotheistic religions cause abuse and dehumanization of those not of the "proper" religion... Islam is just unique is its holding on the to past and is still acting as horrible as Christianity used to.

That and it was founded by a guy who liked to boff a 9 year old...
