Peace-Loving Muslims Are Irrelevant

Vincent Gioia

There are two dangers facing the United States; one is a slow death and the other is faster. Under President Obama the country is losing its Constitution which is either ignored or revised by a Democrat controlled Congress and the White House which should be repainted pink. Around the world Islam is making headway and left unchecked will become the world religion (and I use the word "religion" loosely). Muslims are required by their holy book, the Koran, to eliminate everyone who doesn’t subscribe to Islam. The Islamic army comprises radical terrorists, also known as Jihadists, and those not yet terrorists. Past U.S. presidents at least recognized the threat posed by Jihadists and that they were Muslims. However President Obama, (a one-time Muslim himself?), apologizes for American action against Islamic terrorists and minimizes the danger of Islam.

In Obama’s speech on his Afghanistan strategy a few weeks ago he said in reference to Islamic terrorists, "As we know, these men belonged to al Qaeda — a group of extremists who have distorted and defiled Islam, one of the world’s great religions, to justify the slaughter of innocents."

Obama would have us believe that "a group of extremists" are the only terrorists slaughtering innocents but the truth is they are not a "small" group and they are not all members of al Qaeda. Poll after poll shows that at least 10% of Muslims favor terrorist actions; since there are 1.5 billion Muslims, there are at least about 150 million Muslims who support or could potentially commit murders. Yet the world takes no action to protect against the future Islamic takeover by both violence and the womb. The situation is analogous to what happened in Germany as the Nazis rose to power and implemented their horrifying goals.

It has been reported that a German (believed to be Dr. Emanuel Tanay, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist) wrote the following:

"A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, 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."

Americans 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 there may be some truth in this at the moment, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics killing people 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. 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."

The same phenomenon where "peace-loving" people kept silent while a violent minority took over occurred in Russia, China and Japan.

In communist Russia most Russians 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. Most of China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a 70 million people.

The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not warmongering but Japanese murdered and systematically slaughtered 12 million Chinese killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet and still more across South East Asia.

Peace-loving Russians and Japanese were made irrelevant by their silence; and so do the Muslims.

In today’s world so-called "peace-loving Muslims" will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like the man from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them; and all of us will suffer for their silence.

Around the world peace-loving people who are in the majority must speak up against their fanatics before it’s too late to do any good. As in Germany, they may find themselves, along with the rest of us, living under a regime like the Nazis who came to power as a minority.

The rest of us should not rely on an awakening by peace-loving Muslims to stifle the Islamic jihad’s threat. Unlike Obama we must identify the threat as Islam and do everything in our power to keep political Muslims from over-riding the freedom and liberty we enjoy through our Constitution in the United States.

History lessons are often incredibly simple yet we are missing the most basic and uncomplicated of points, that we cannot rely on others to protect us.
