(got this from another bikie who's dad was shot down twice by the Brits and once by the Yanks. He has heaps of bikes and pics of his dad in Luftwaffe uniform on the wall. He was a LEO, tells me he said to his mum "How could you tolerate such atrocities" She said, "Tolerate? You kept your mouth shut or the police would come around and shoot you on your doorstep. So whilst this is not new, it is topical)
A man whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War Two
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,
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 specter 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.
The hard quantifiable fact is that the "peaceful majority" the
"silent majority" is cowed and extraneous.
Communist Russia comprised 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, it was peaceful as well, but Chinese
Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.
The average Japanese individual prior to World War 2 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
Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up,
because like my friend from Germany, they will awake one day and
find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will
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, at the risk of offending, anyone who doubts that the issue
is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, can
contribute to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand.
So, extend yourself and send this on and on and on!! Let us hope
that thousands, world wide, read this - think about it - and send it
