Skip to comments.German Psychiatrist and Holocaust Survivor Gives his View on Islam
Posted on 07/04/2013 7:05:46 AM PDT by Antioch
The author of this is Dr. Emanuel Tanay, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist. A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When he was 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 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. Chinas 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, uncomplicated points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they dont 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.
Now Islamic prayers have been introduced into Toronto and other public schools in Ontario, and, yes, in Ottawa too while the Lords Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?) The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in.
In Australia, and indeed in many countries around the world, many of the most commonly consumed food items have the halal emblem on them. Just look at the back of some of the most popular chocolate bars, and at other food items in your local supermarket. Food on aircraft have the halal emblem, just to appease the privileged minority who are now rapidly expanding within the nations shores.
In the U.K, the Muslim communities refuse to integrate and there are now dozens of no-go zones within major cities across the country that the police force dare not intrude upon. SHARIA LAW prevails there, because the Muslim community in those areas refuse to acknowledge British law.
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.
AND WE ARE SILENT
It is not their silence that has made them irrelevant. They are pretty much powerless to do anything about it, just like the average Japanese people etc,.
When a force like this grows there is little to do about it that will be effective, especially from a nation outside of their primary influence.
The reason for this problem being unique is that it is stateless. There is no one entity to fight and vanquish.
Our only hope is that countries like Egypt revolt from within as they just did. I have yet to hear of a way for an outside entity to play a role in the defeat of radical Islam. The solution will have to come from within countries other than ours.
I believe that modernism is our greatest ally. Bitch as we might about our media, it is from our media influence worldwide that people elsewhere can crave a better life by seeing it in front of them, even if idiots like the Kardashians may be the ones they are seeing most.
The Koran is a fanatics handbook and all muslims agree with it or else. Just because they are not open about it does not mean they aren’t fanatics, they’re just biding their time.
We’re not silent yet. We let off plenty of steam on the internet...as if that isn’t detrimental.
True but not entirely correct.
The expansion of Wahbi Islam is being financed primarily from Saudi Arabia.
We could do something about it but are politically unwilling. Saudi money is used to build Mosques and schools through out the world that teach the Wahhabi version of Sunni Islam. This malignant form of Islam teaches that it is the will of Allah that non-Muslims be killed or enslaved if they refuse to be converted to Islam.
We could use political pressure to convince the Saudis to cease this expansion of Islam but the Saudi money greases too many hands throughout government, academia and the entertainment world.
The advances in the field of oil exploration and mining gives me some hope (not much really) that Saudi influence and funding of the expansion of Islam will be reduced as the supply of oil expands. However as the supply of oil grows so will demand as the third world develops.
One of two things will probably occur; either we will go to war against Islam (the present low level war will become a full blown and acknowledged war) or we will fall under the same servitude to Islam that has befallen most Western Europe. Right now if I had to guess I would bet on the latter. And I say that simply because there is not even any acknowledgement of the problem by media or government in this country.
Just as the article states if we deny the existence of the problem we have not chance of dealing with that problem.
Once Saudi oil is gone, the billions that flow into publishing, education and overseas mosque building will slow down. The 20 trillion dollar oil shale find in South Australia will go a long away toward that. But oil is a small part of a nation, the true air supply of a civilization is God. There is no community without God, just a competing cacophany of self interested parties. The way it stands now, Satan (aka Allah) is slowly but surely supplanting Jesus Christ in the West. And the moral relativism of the liberal brain on handouts is powerless to stop that.
"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."
What saith the Scriptures?
Jer 8:9 The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?
Jer 8:10 Therefore will I give their wives unto others, and their fields to them that shall inherit them: for every one from the least even unto the greatest is given to covetousness, from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.
Jer 8:11 For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
Since we have as a nation rejected The God, He has rejected us. The outcome is now irrevocably in process.
What? Bush was wrong? It’s NOT a religion of peace with “Women of Cover”?
Both points are valid.
I would suggest that it has been the indoctrination within our country that will make this battle truly unique.
Political correctness and more importantly, moral relativism have conditioned too many in the public sphere of media, gov’t and business to bow to the peer pressure it has created.
Show me a liberal that doesn’t support a democratically elected dictator or tyranny.
As a Conservative that mistrusts the gov’t but loves the individual, they will tell you that the gov’t IS made up of individuals.
Moral relativism takes on a life of it’s own and doesn’t need a majority to thrive and expand. Misguided guilt and compassion are the first tools they pick up. Intimidation and fear are the natural next phase as the tipping point is reached.
Our worst enemy in this struggle maybe our schools. Our children are being taught more about foreign cultures than they are our own. Our children are more or less taught that the traditional English/American/Western European culture is an evil unjust culture rather than the culture that introduced the ideal of individual freedom to the world.
If our children do not respect their own culture how can we expect them to resist the onslaught of a alien culture that respects no other culture and has as one of its basic tenets that all other cultures are worthy only of destruction.
As long as a Muslim believes in or clings to Sharia Law and the words of Mohammed I will not accept any Muslim as a partner for the USA dream as given to us by the Founders and their handed down Constitution. Talk about wolves in sheep clothing any and all.
You are correct as to the negative effects coming from the Saudis.
However, as both Bushes and Clinton showed us before Obama, American politicians aren’t going to go after them. They are still viewed as valuable economically and that always drives the bus.
I agree with you for the most part, but you can’t easily dismiss whom another country legally elects. We have done that many times in the past and it always blew up in our faces.
Iran is a great example of this.
All we do is make mistakes when we're dealing with the issue. Our 'leaders' came up with the brain-dead idea that these people needed the vote. That's nuts at this stage. What these countries need is a discussion about the equivalent of the bill of rights. Each could be discussed for a year - then put to a vote. The thought process involved is what will bring about the changes.
Iraq's Saddam loved 'the vote' - he would win 98% of it and have his ego inflated. Dictators love votes... What they don't want is citizens with power. That's what the US offers the world - NOT the right to vote for one blowhard over another, but the freedom not to have to deal with the blowhards.
