Very tired dog of mine. My fault entirely. Moved his food bowl to another room. Sadly passed away but memories linger on in his son Bruce, & his son Max. Both on my website:

A German's view on Islam

I picked this up from the internet. Although, at first sight, it appears to be yet another disguised diatribe against the islamist religion, it has some merit & is worth a read, I think.

Also, from my point of view, as one who dislikes & mistrusts all organised religions, except maybe, parts of buddhism, the following could be applied to all religions & "isms", including capitalism in some of its manifestations.

Anyway, see what you think!

The author of this 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 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 40 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


a.. Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.

b.. 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


c.. 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.
