Subject: A German’s View on Islam – worth reading.
This is one of the best explanations of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read.
The author of this email is Dr. Emanuel Tanya, 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 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 a 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 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. Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet then 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 several thousands.’
‘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 70 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 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 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 in Toronto and other public schools in Ontario, and, yes, in Ottawa, too, while the Lord’s 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 nation’s 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.’
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. Extend yourself a bit and send this on. Let us hope that thousands world-wide read this, think about it, and send it on before it’s too late, and we are silenced .
It saddens me when I see the stories (on FB) of the inhuman and evil organisation (I won’t even name them) torture and execute people in the most gruesome ways… Can we all think and reflect a bit, before we do the automatic (almost like robots) “like” and “share”??
Below are my thoughts, if you care to read:
HELLO PEOPLE OF THE WORLD!!! Do you know that we – INCLUDING ALL MEDIA AGENCIES – are all helping the evil organisation in this “war”… Just what are we doing? We are giving them free publicity, every time we like and share all these “DEFEATS”.
Can we think out of the box for some solutions??? For example, Like and Share our world’s “VICTORIES” against them. I believe that if we look hard enough, we can find some positive news items instead.
HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE 🙂
Malaysian blogger Din Merican writes about the trial of Rosli Dahlan… I can only hope that this story is never forgotten by the people of Malaysia.
The forgotten people from the forgotten state … Rohingyas from Arakan
The Rohingyas have been living in the state of Arakan since the 8th century. When Myanmar and Bangladesh decided upon their country border, Arakan was divided into two – partly Myanmar (population: 1.5m) and partly Bangladesh (population: 200k).
Although they were accepted as part of the nation in the beginning (having allowed voting rights, etc), as power changed, so did the treatment towards the Rohingyas.
End of 1970s, Myanmar launched Operation Naga Min where Rohingya were targeted and massacred in the name of ethnic cleansing. Many ran to Bangladesh. In 1982, Citizenship Law was passed and the Rohingya were deemed officially stateless.
While the Rohingyas in Myanmar are massacred in killing fields, the ones in Bangladesh are limited in their movement and often subject to exploitation.
The women are victims of sexual violence, children are denied education and there is limited access of health and medical aid.
The hostile environment for the Rohingyas in Myanmar…

Serendipity strikes, again… I like this blogger’s style
Some say leaders are born. They believe there is a kernel of leadership in everyone. While there might be a bit of leader deep inside everyone, that does not make them a leader. People become leaders when they step forward and when they are accepted as leader by their followers. So I say leaders are made.
Being a leader ain’t an easy task, especially when you’re a leader in Malaysia where you owe everyone a favour and the rest are busy fanning your back for a favour in return. So what does a good leader need to do and how does he carry himself in the eyes of his followers?
Here are 20 pointers on what it takes to be a great leader in Malaysia!
A good leader always increases the standard of living of his people.
One way to increase standard of living is by increasing cost and reducing subsidies. When…

Very well written post about poor leaders and …
Lately there has been a lot of raves about our leaders who make headlines for all the wrong reasons – from making racist statements all the way to being plain dumb. It got me thinking what bozos we have as leaders in our country. Truly, we have a number of politicians who make horrible leaders.
These leaders whose profession are supposed to be noble and self-sacrificing gets a little too complicated when they become power-hungry and obsessed with the perks that comes with their position. And when that happens, they compromise between ethics and principles.
Clearly, horrible leaders have negative impact on the lives of the Rakyat as well as damage the image of the country. Therefore, understanding the traits of horrible leaders can help us avoid leadership pitfalls and at the same time, provide a guideline for our new generation of politicians.
These are my top ten signs of…

Some time ago, a local artist from Malaysia was interviewed on a Singapore radio station. She was asked about her favourite body part.
“My favourite part of my body is my nipples.”
She meant her dimples.
Few months ago a friend went to this nice restaurant in The Gardens. He ordered the Mexican Meatballs as the appetizer. After the meatballs were served, the waiter asked:
“Sir, would you like me to sauce your balls?”
He almost choked.
Yup, the falling standards of the English language in Malaysia has gone beyond redemption. And this is exactly the reason why I almost fell off my chair yesterday morning when I read the news:
“Education Minister II Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh insisted that our teacher’s English language proficiency level be on par with that of their peers in England.”
Come on lah – at par with the Brits? Who are we…

THE ANTI-HYSTERIA KIT IS NO LAUGHING MATTER
Blogger: I am serious when it comes to the supernatural. It is no laughing matter. I have seen ghosts and met people who were possessed by demons.
I don’t know if this anti-hysteria kit works but if the inventors have tested it and say that it does, I would tend to believe them.
Some people see supernatural entities, others don’t. The former has a capacity to notice the supernatural, the latter may not. It’s a fact of life that I accept.
DO YOUR STUDENTS GET POSSESSED BY EVIL SPIRITS AND GO INTO MASS HYSTERIA?
FOR RM8,750 you can buy from Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) an anti-hysteria kit comprising everyday items like chopsticks, salt, lime, vinegar, pepper spray, and formic acid that it claims can ward off these “evil spirits”.
Training will be provided for two people.
