Dr. Emanuel Tanay’s, a well known/well- respected, German, psychiatrist & author of this view on IslamHis family was German aristocracy pre WW II, owned–a-# of large industries & 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, & 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 & let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, & the end of the world had come.
My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp & the Allies destroyed my factories." We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace, & 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 a 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.
The average Japanese individual prior to WW II was not a war mongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered & slaughtered its way across S. E. 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 & blunt, yet for all our powers of reason we often miss the most basic & 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 & find that the fanatics own them, & the end of their world will have begun. Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians & 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 & on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world wide, read this & think about it, and send it on before it's too late.

This is by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I ever read. His reference to past history's accurate & clear.
