A German's view of Islam

By sleepin'dawg ·
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 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 posers 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.

I was with you right up until the very last paragraph.

by CharlieSpencer In reply to A German's view of Islam

Which I can't believe you included. Anyone who encourages me to forward an e-mail immediately loses credibility with me regarding the subject under discussion. How will forwarding an e-mail inspire the peaceful Islamic majority to abandon or take action against the militant minority?

It was "cut and paste" as received. I didn't edit anything.

by sleepin'dawg In reply to I was with you right up u ...

Even the lead in is unedited (although TR formatting was installed to match the original). Make of it what you will.

I thought it thought provoking and I do not wholly agree with some of it. If you remember I have often expressed the opinion, "The only Muslim that can be trusted, is a dead one." I also know that, that is an extremely biased and prejudiced statement, for which I have reasons for, but which I won't bore you with by belaboring them. They're MY reasons; that's sufficient.

I agree with most of it, up to the last paragraph.

When people disagree

by jdclyde In reply to I was with you right up u ...

Funny how something that has nothing to do with the content would in your mind take away credibility from anything.

You agree with the sentiment in the post or you don't. Deciding to share something you have said you agree with is a natural next step, is it not?

As for what is inspired or not, if you see there is a dangerous situation, would people be better off if they are pre-warned or not?

Is there something about the main ideas that you don't WANT to agree with, so are looking for a reason to disagree by finding a minor flaw somewhere/anywhere?

When I get such things, after I read up on them some, I will pass them along, but often modify the guilt trip at the end. The ideas are not suspect just because of the "send to everyone or you will get excessive gas" warning at the end.

by CharlieSpencer In reply to When people disagree

When I see a 'forward to everyone' at the end of a post, it implies to me that the poster has copied and pasted the text, a technique the Dawg says he did here. I've received e-mails from friends where it was obvious the text was copied and pasted. The first paragraph usually starts out as something I can recognize the sender agrees with. Subsequent paragraphs wander away from principles I know the sender to hold, and often end completely opposed to what I know the sender to think or feel. When I contact the sender and ask if he has read the entire text, they often respond in the negative. Upon re-reading they are surprised to find the complete content of what they've forwarded.

A closing "forward to everyone" paragraph is my red flag that the sender or poster often has not read the entire text.

Also, around here it's common for someone to paste something they disagree with as a conversation starter. This is often accompanied by a 'What do you think?' While starting a converastion may be their intent, the poster often fail to indicate whether he is in agreement or disagreement. This isn't the case with Dawg's post, but it does happen. This usually sets off my troll alarm.

I put more credence in a concept someone rephrases in their own words along with a link to the original material than a copy and paste job. Doing so tells me the poster has a grasp of the ideas. Again, this isn't true in Dawg's case; maybe that's why I had a hard time believing he left in the paragraph.

Copy and paste generates unnecessary duplicate search engine results. A simple link back to the original material is always preferable for that reason alone. No link to the original makes it harder for the reader of the opportunity to read any questions and replies on the original author's web page. Searching for the author's page is often complicated by the previously mentioned clogged search results.

Funny thing

by The Scummy One In reply to When people disagree

I just read one in my email, at the end it stated to pass it to 20 people or bad things would happen, however if passed, good things will happen.
Then the trip got much busier citing dates like
in 1958 someone got it and forwarded it and won the lotto, one person that recieved it did not forward it, and lost his job a few days later. Then after losing his job, he rushed, found it and forwarded it and got rich.
Then in the 60's someone else did not forward it, and his son got really sick, he then forwarded it and his son miraculously got better. Then in the 70's -- I stopped reading the BS and went along with other things.

Enemies of Civilization

by road-dog In reply to A German's view of Islam

You can tell a lot about an enemy by the results of his intentions.

One need only look at nations run under Islamic law to see what awaits anyone willing to allow it to pass.

Fundamentalist Islam desires to end our culture. Look at the middle east to see what they would like to replace it.

Islamic fundamentalists do not acknowledge to right of other cultures and religions to exist. At some point the civilized world will have to decide to eradicate it in self-defense. At that point, the Muslim world will have to decide to take back their hijacked religion. Either that or suffer that same fate as the German aristocrat.
