The Peaceful Majority
by: Paul E. Marek
I used to know a man whose family was of German aristocracy prior to World War II. Thcy owned a number of large estates and numerous industries. I asked him one time just how many German people were true Nazis, and the answer he gave me has stuck with me all these many years and has truly guided by attitude towards fanaticism of any and all kinds every since.
“Very few people were true Nazis,” he said “but they enjoyed the return of the German pride, and many more were just too busy to care. I was one those who thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools and nuts. So the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we really knew it, they owned us.and we had lost control and the end of the world had come.
My family lost everything. I personally wound up in a concentration camp and the Allied bombers destroyed the factories completely
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 left in peace.
Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is just meant to make us feel beuer, 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 shootings 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 killing . 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” is the “silent majority” and it 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 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 war-mongering 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”?
Histoty 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 awake 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, I wish to add: At the risk of offending someone, I sincerely think that anyone who rejects this as just another political rant, or doubts the seriousness of this issue is part of the problem. Lets quit laughing at and forwarding the jokes and cartoons which denigrate and ridicule our leaders in this war against terror. They are trying to protect the interests and well being of the US and it’s citizens. Best we support them.
