Tanay, Marek and any Peaceful Majority


Islam Rel of Peace Except...

David Partridge posted a comment that he attributes to Dr. Emanuel Tanay a Holocaust survivor. The comment was to a post by Shamim Masih a Christian Pakistani that keeps updated on the treatment of Christians in Muslim dominated Pakistan. Shamim was reporting a bird’s-eye view of the Taliban attack on a Pakistan army managed school for children for first and secondary school education. The Taliban slaughtered 132 school-age children in retribution for the Pakistan army clamping down on Taliban activity in the outer-reaches of Pakistan near Afghanistan. Shamim entitled his report “Racism and Injustice Must End”.

 

The thing is the Tanay attribution is actually a chain-email that has been passed around for years. Dr. Tanay did not actually write the essay which was originally entitled “A German’s Point of View on Islam”. I myself was impressed with the essay and posted it on my oldest blog site simply called SlantRight.com in 2008 (currently an archive site that occasionally goes down at the end of the month when monthly data usage exceeds its servers limits). Dr. Tanay sent me an email correcting the original author:

 

I received an email from Emmanuel Tanay, MD. This information may change the conclusions of the story below.

I did not write the article attributed to me; I have forwarded it to some friends. Someone put my name as the author. I am not German but a Holocaust survivor from Poland. Obviously, I am aware of the danger of fanaticism.

My book Passport to Life (Amazon.com) gives some of my reflections on the subject of fanaticism.

The author of the article you are referring to was Paul E. Marek of Saskatoon, Canada. The original Title was Why The Peaceful Majority Is Irrelevant. Paul E. Marek is a second-generation Canadian, whose grandparents fled Czechoslovakia just prior to the Nazi takeover. He wrote it in February of 2006.

Also http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/6996 [Blog Editor: The link is still good. The link is to Paul Marek’s original article posted on Israel Nation News – Arutz Sheva 7. However the link is a redirect probably because it was written so long ago.]

Although Muslim Apologists and Leftist Multiculturalists glory in pointing out that Dr. Tanay did not pen the original it nevertheless is an awesome essay that should be attributed to Paul Marek. Below is David Partridge’s comment that should be read again and again.

A German’s View on Islam – worth reading because this is by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. The author of this email is Dr. Emanuel Tanya (sic) [Blog Editor: David Partridge actually means Dr. Emanuel Tanay rather than “Tanya”], a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist–a man, whose family was German aristocracy prior t…o World War II, and 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 our 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 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 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 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 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.

 

Islamic prayers have now been introduced into Toronto and other public schools in Ontario, and, yes, in Ottawa too while the Lord’s Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?! To whom? Not to the vast majority of Canadians!).

 

The Islamic way is only peaceful 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 products in your local supermarket. Foods on aircraft have the halal emblem, just to appease the privileged minority who are now rapidly expanding throughout the world.

 

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 refuses to acknowledge British law.

 

As for we who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts — the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

 

Anyone who doubts the seriousness of this issue and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand.

 

So, I beg you, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on in the hope that thousands, world-wide, read this, think about it, and send it on – before it’s too late . . .. Because we remained silent.

The Nazi Experience and Radical Islamic Fundamentalism


Nazi Islam Salute

Someone sent a comment to me from my old SlantRight.com website that is in archive mode. Amazingly the system still works when a comment is sent. It is amazing because I do not have actual control of the website. I had a disagreement with the owner of the servers for SlantRight.com. The dispute led to an agreement to leave the site up as an archive, but if you click there you may receive an error message that claims the website’s bandwidth has been exceeded (If you are interested in reading SlantRight.com – http://www.slantright.com/index.php as an archive site you can let the owner of the server know HERE).

 

So it is amazing that the system sends me a message every so often. The SlantRight comment led me to a blog called The Critical Thinker. The last that I checked that blog has not been active since 12/13/11.

 

The commenter wanted me to know about some insight from Dr. Emanuel Tanay of whom I had posted one of his essays explaining the Islamic doctrine of abrogation [NCCR Correction 9/30/12: Oops, I confused Emanuel Tanay with David Bukay. Bukay is the person who actually wrote the piece on abrogation.]. The Tanay information in this post is a bit dated; however it is quite on point with today’s Muslim reaction to Western Free Speech (American Free Speech in particular). I have no doubt the Muslim rioting against U.S. Embassies have been incited by Muslims that follow the purist theology of what we in the West call Radical Islam or Political Islam.

Nazi Brass

The Critical Thinker ™

 

We are often told that radical ideas about anything–whether it be religion, politics, or philosophies, can be tolerated as long as these ideas remain within the minority of individuals.

 

A US-based psychiatrist, Dr. Emanuel Tanay, offered some insight into the power of ideas that while emerging from a small minority, can take over whole populations and create massive impact. He also highlights that fence-sitters, or the silent majority–are complicit in any atrocities committed in the name of radical ideas.

 

Here’s Dr. Tanay’s Note:

 

A man whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War ll 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 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 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 rape victims and homosexuals.  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 people.
 
The average Japanese individual prior to World War ll 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 and uncomplicated of points:

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.

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, at the risk of offending, 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 and on and on! Let us hope that thousands worldwide, read this -think about it – and send it on.
