A German’s point of view on Islam

A man whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War ll 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. 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 ll 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 civilian s; 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, Afghan is, 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, at the risk of offending, 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 of expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world wide, read this - think about it - and send it on.

Emanuel Tanay,
M.D.Ann Arbor, MI

It is refreshing to hear the perspective of a German/European that can see the greivous error we have made in allowing a Muslim to habitate the White House. Germans remember being sold a bill of goods by Hitler in his preparation for capturing the leadership of their country. In the same method Hitler used, Obama will say or do anything he feels is necessary to persuade the masses to follow him. We know that it is allowed, by Muslim/Sharia Law, to lie to one"s adversaries, to deceive, and confound in an effort to gain total control. Obama is a master of deception, a gifted liar, and a power hungry individual hellbent on bringing this Country to its knees.

I did not write the article attributed to me; I have forwarded it to some friends. Someone put my name as the author. I am not German but a Holocaust survivor from Poland. Obviously, I am aware of the danger of fanaticism. My book Passport to Life (Amazon.com) gives some of my reflections on the subject of fanaticism. The author of the article you are referring to was Paul E. Marek of Saskatoon, Canada. The original Title was Why The Peaceful Majority Is Irrelevant. Paul E. Marek is a second-generation Canadian, whose grandparents fled Czechoslovakia just prior to the Nazi takeover. He wrote it in February of 2006.

AMP, I think the reason for our governments not doing anything is that they are taking counsel from Muslims themselves whose holly book says that they can lie to the infidels to further the cause of Allah, (as long as they don't mean it in their hearts).. No one in their right mind takes counsel from the enemy no matter how nice they seem, and no one in their right mind would NOT read the offensive evidence, in this case, the quran, especially where there is non stop world wide violence done by Muslims and has been for 1400 years..... but Mohammad was very cunning, he brought a god into the equation which has tripped nations up for 1400 years, and brainwashed people to kill for a lie. Now if you were a man wanting to take the world, what is a better way to control the masses but to bring a god into the equation, who can stand against a god who tells his people that if they really love him that they will kill all the evil people and unbelievers in the world, after all a god is always right and you do have a choice, die with nothing or die killing unbelievers with a reward for doing so by going to paradise without question.

Regarding oil money - perhaps with the price of oil now around $100 a barrel, it may become economically viable for alternative fuel technologies. America has vast resources of oil shale in Colorado,Utah and Wyoming, oil which to date has been too expensive to extract. This would save the US billions of dollars from going overseas, as well as provide much needed employment.

Dr Tanay’s message is loud and clear and I hope that it is spread far and wide. Why, if it is so clear to so many of us, is it not glaringly obvious to those who have the evidence first hand? Great analogy Bigfoot! And you are spot on about Western leaders needing to determine a strategy to counteract what is happening - but the majority of them just don’t get it. They don’t get that a war is happening right under their noses, a war of stealth that has been going on for decades, encroaching like a cancer, taking over, spreading its poison. Bigfoot, you wonder if we are being governed by sane men or traitors. Some are stupidly ignorant, some are definitely traitors. An article from the “Freedom of Information Center” (Missouri, 2003), “How billions in oil money spawned a global terror network”, although now dated somewhat, makes interesting reading about how American intelligence agencies, aware of how Saudi billions, through its unregulated charities, were funding the jihad movement, were effectively gagged by both ‘political correctness’ and bribes, viz. “The list of beneficiaries is impressive: former cabinet secretaries, ambassadors, and CIA station chiefs. Washington lobbyists, P.R. firms, and lawyers have also supped at the Saudi table, as have nonprofits from the Kennedy Center to presidential libraries. The high-flying Carlyle Group has made fortunes doing deals with the Saudis. Among Carlyle's top advisers have been former President George H.W. Bush; James Baker, his secretary of state; and Frank Carlucci, a former secretary of defense. If that wasn't enough, there was the staggering amount of Saudi investment in America--as much as $ 600 billion in U.S. banks and stock markets.” The Saudis, however, wanting to spread worldwide their brand of Wahhabi Islam, were apparently unaware of exactly how their billions were being spent, since it seems that no-one was actually accountable. At first they refused to believe that it was being hijacked by extremists, specifically Al-Qaeda. Evidence that the Saudi Royal Family was in its sights and several bombings in Riyadh in 2003 caused them to change their minds and institute tighter controls on the money flow. See: “Al Qaeda Organization in the Arabian Peninsula” http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/para/al-qaida-arabia.htm (an interesting website with more up-to-date news on how the Saudis are now in the fight against Al Qaeda since their oil fields are at risk). Our leaders, those in positions of authority and power DO know, but what are they actually doing and is it enough? We continue to see everyday examples of a takeover of power and very little being done to halt it. What more can we as plane passengers do?

Herb I totally agree with you and Big Foot, what a fantastic way of putting it... thanks.. While we continue to give them money for oil, we are giving money for our demise. And you are dead right when you say that we are being destroyed by our own ignorance, apathy, and that of our leaders.. They are fools hiding behind their own importance and their stupidity.. who in their right mind takes council from the enemy, as they do from Muslims. If they were not so stinken lazy and read the quran etc for themselves they would see the danger of what Islam will force upon us, but like many on here I fear that we will loose millions of our young before it is over, and it would be unnecessary if our leaders would just wake up, and of course they wont get hurt will they???.. Would they be so slack if it meant their necks..

On the money

Posted by aRamy on 2008-01-05 20:14:17 GMT


Dr. Tanay writes what most of us "Islamic watchers" know to be true. He left out one aspect of this on-going war against civilized societies: the oil money, it buys friends in many high places. As they sell out for personal gain, they advance the end of our modern world.

I like the analogy of the aircraft with, say, 200 passengers on board when two terrorists with guns and bombs seize control. No one says, 'Oh, it's only a small minority; there's still 198 peaceful, decent passengers on board. There's nothing to worry about.' Sadly that's what many of our politicians and western governments seem to be saying. It leaves one wondering whether we are being governed by sane men or by traitors. In the centuries past Islam has taken over country after country by exactly the same means that they are now taking over Europe. They must be resisted, opposed, condemned, criticised and exposed at every level of society from the corner shop to the Houses of Parliament. Above all, western leaders need to get together in a global conference or convention to determine a joint strategy to combat global Islam. We are being destroyed by our own ignorance, apathy and indifference.

Mr Tanay is quite right in what he says with just one exception. The overwhelming majority of Germans supported and even loved Hitler, not just throughout the 30s, but also during the bloody war. In fact, Hitler was quite popular in many European countries at least until 1940. I suspect that we are seeing something similar within Islam. The radical Islamists have the support of tens of millions of Muslims and the rest remain silent. This situation, unfortunately, is not likely to just go away without a lot of bloodshed.

This is a fantastic letter, and so true.. It scares me that our leaders are taking council from Muslims who are allowed to lie to the infidels to further the cause of Allah, as long as they don't mean it in their hearts.

the expression IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO STAND FOR MEANS YOU WILL FALL FOR ANYTHING is a wporld-wide sickness prevailing because mankind is too secure in our own lifestyles, too comfortable in our owm comfort zones and possibly too cowardly or too selfish to stand up for ones convictions
