A German’s View of Islam

islamic_jihad_w_koran_and_rifleReprinted from IsraelNationalNew.com

I used to know a man whose family were German aristocracy prior to World War II. They owned a number of large industries and estates. I asked him how many German people were true Nazis, and the answer he gave has stuck with me and guided my attitude toward fanaticism ever since.

“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 unquantified 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 world wide. 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 execute honor killings. 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 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 war-mongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across Southeast 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 the fanatics. 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, Bosnians, Afghanis, 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, watching it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts: the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

    The writer of this article points precisely the most important topics concerning Integrism, Fanaticism and Islamism,
    Being in fight against Islamism from 33 years till now, I feel any word of the article.
    But, our experience is somehow different from this article.
    OUR LETHAL ENEMY IS VERY WELL KNOWN, and that is Islamism,
    our problem is to make the west to understand that ISLAMISM is also their lethal enemy.
    HOW we can make OBAMA to understand that Unlimited negotiations with the MULLAHS will generate the ISLAMIC NUCLEAR BOMB?

      the enemy of civilization is not "islamism". the enemy is islam. islam is composed of muslims, all of whom are scripturally obligated to wage jihad. some chose to kill infidels now. others are content to kill infidels later. there is no other faction. the enemy is muslims. if a country has one muslim, it has a muslim problem. it is the duty of people who do not wish to worship an evil god and venerate an archcriminal prophet to render all muslims peaceful. where islam is concerned, peaceful means dead. if the treasonous "leaders" of western countries would somehow wake up and realize the wages of their evil acts, they would stop the importation of muslims, send their muslims home, prevent their population from having anything to do with muslim countries, stop saving muslims from their own wars, stop saving muslims from their own pestilences and famines, and send aid to minorities being exterminated by evil muslims.

    We claim to b in an era of democracy, which means a govt
    by the ppl for the ppl nd of the ppl. If truely this is democracy which all western nations nd the US re advocating then i dont see any reason whatsoever in them stopping the muslims frm practicing sharia in muslim majority nations. But very unfortunately that is not the case. Muslims nd nonmuslims re fully protected under sharia nor chriatian nd nor a jew will b stopped frm practicing his religion. What is that u fear abt islam. A christian lady will not asked to put on hijab nd no shall any nonmuslim b forcefully comverted

      Where are you from?
      In Iran, were I am, the Christians, Jews, Bahaii's can not practice freely their faith.
      But they can freely practice JAIL, Torture, and being executed, if they practice their religion.
      An unveiled or weak veiled woman will be arrested, and will be jailed and raped by the Mullahs and the Islamist police.
      Hayat Saeed;
      I am Muslim born I myself, ISLAM on government is SATANISM, you can not find worst.
      We have returned the SLAVERY AGE with ISLAM on power.
      NOW, what we hope is uprooting ISLAMISM, we are fighting very hard, any hour of Islamism on power is equivalent of more poverty, more deaths, more destruction,
      Yesterday in IRAQ, 70 killed by BOMBING and several hundreds wounded,
      before they were saying that, it is because of the Americans, NOW that there is no American army in IRAQ, who puts the BOMB?
      we know very well who was putting the BOMB and who is putting the BOMB, it is always the QODS forces of IRAN who are under direct order of Khameneii who claims to be the MUSLIM POP of the MUSLIM WORLD.
      SO, we the muslims, we should take our responsibility to destroy ISLAMISM.

        islam is islam …why don’t you get out ? just because you say you’re sufi doesn’t mean jack…you still worship the idiotic co-ran and you still think that that mad man is your prophet…don’t kid yourself and us …islam is stupid and it seems so are you. Get out of islam first then dance and sing…..your allah is a joke on you and your mo was a dirty filthy gutter guy.

      What a bunch of lying for the advance of Islam.

      Hayat, you are a liar since Muslim countries are the focus of terror activities. How many Christians have lost their life in Africa, Asia, et. in the past decade because muslims murdered them?

      Until Islam renounces the world domination aspect, denounces sharia law, denounces terror; Islam will be confronted and defeated by real men.

      Guess what muslim? Nobody in their right mind believes you, we infidels will not go quietly into the night without a fight, and you can bet your muslim ass that we are going to give you a fight that will be told around a thousand fires for a thousand years. Deo Volente!

      You lie. I have read your Qu'ran, and the hadiths. Infidels are only protected under second class status, and constant attacks if they step out of line.

    “I also believe that the vast majority of Germans and Japanese in 1939 wanted to live in peace and make better lives for their families. Unfortunately, they were mostly irrelevant, because the extremists had the guns and the power. Those who weren’t irrelevant and spoke out died violently at the hands of the extremists. And while freedom has had support from moderate, peaceful Muslims, they are too often irrelevant, cowed or controlled by those with the guns, just as the Germans and Japanese were in 1939.” From “The Coming Collapse of the American Republic” by Robert A.

    In seven paragraphs this article waves the red flag that is largely ignored, refuted, ridiculed and dismissed by a complacent, easily manipulated public living in what is the evaporating free society they take for granted. When Japan attacked Pearl Harbor one of their Admirals expressed the fear that they may have awakened a sleeping giant. We are once again asleep but the giant, like Gulliver, is being shackled in chains of deception, fed a diet of lies and destined to be far more compliant when the snake of Islamic supremacism eventually decides to strike.

    Let there be no mistaking the taqiyya so inexpertly espoused by Hayat Saeed. The snake is a metaphor for Islam which envisions a world where all he claims will not be, most definitely will, unless the west wakes up before it is too late. Islam is not a benign religion in the traditional western sense. It is a backward, violent, political ideology with its proponents feet planted firmly in a cement block poured in the seventh century.

    Unlike the west, which has embraced and adapted to the modernizing influences engendered by advances in science, technology and societal evolution the world of Islam remains mired in the past and blames its lack of progress on those they consider infidels, non Muslims, apes and pigs, worthy of enslavement or violent butchery of the most heinous kind, and death: all fostered and condoned by their “faith.” "Death to Israel" and "Death to America" is their fervent declaration behind closed doors while the likes of Hayat Saeed slither and hiss their expressions of tolerance and unity and the freedom of religion, and diversity that is a hallmark of modern western democracy while at the same time aggressively attempting to criminalize any and all reference to their ideology, the Quran, Allah and the Muslim prophet, Mohammad. They cannot abide what represents their most feared, non lethal weapon of a free society, the freedom of speech. It could be their undoing. One can only hope that critics are undaunted by the inevitable accusations of “Islamophobia” which emanate from everywhere these fanatics have established a foothold including here in the United States.

    “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.”


    History revisionism and outright lying are despicable acts, and for Germans they are heinous acts. The fact is that the Nazis were wildly popular in Germany. Just as a single example, the majority of physicians voluntarily joined the Nazi party. This is true of most of the professions. And it is also true that the SS had huge numbers of volunteers. It is also known that the Wehrmacht (the "regular" German army) fully participated in the destruction of the Jews. Hitler openly, repeatedly, and loudly claimed that his main goal was the annihilation of all Jews.

    This man claims to the a German aristocrat. These are exactly the people who were leaders in the Nazi party.

    If this man was a factory owner then it is 100% certain that he used Jewish slave labor in those factories. And Jewish slave labor was not like slavery in America. The Jews were systematically starved, and were destined for eventual murder by the Germans.

    What exactly did this man's factories produce anyway? He doesn't say. Surely they helped the German war machine. He laments that the Allies destroyed his factories. "His family lost everything." Well, sir, they did not lose the most precious thing: their lives. That's what the Jews lost. Moreover, the German factories were quickly rebuilt after the war.

    This man claims to have been put into a concentration camp. Why did the Germans put him into a concentration camp? He doesn't say which one. It sounds suspiciously vague. Indeed the Germans did put what they considered political criminals into concentration camps. BUT, they had unique patches on their inmate clothing. Different classes of concentration camp prisoners had different patches. Political prisoners who were not Jewish were fed more much more rations and were given less physical labor. The evidence of this man's having lived through the war testifies to the fact that he was not designated for death as all the Jewish inmates were.

    The Muslims are indeed a threat to the world, but blatantly lying about Germany's crimes is an abomination.

    We are in the process of seeing history repeat itself, by this I mean you will see the rise of cold hard Teutonic nationalism that will be unrelenting and completely ruthless towards our enemy, islam and all that follow it, we live in very interesting times to say the least.

    NO there is a peaceful and tolerant Islam and fanatical Islam, ISLAM there and nothing else.

    A barbaric and murderous doctrine, born of the sick and depraved mind of a subject, Muhammad / Mohammed, infectious and nauseous, angry, and resentful renegade against his fellow, bursting with power, despotic, sex offender, rapist and child abuser. A man, in short, absolutely unpresentable.

    Therefore, Islam is nothing more than a blight, a pandemic against which there is only one solution, its TOTAL ELIMINATION OF THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

      Islam is the greatest ever devised détritus. It is not nothing but a despotic and totalitarian political ideology masquerading as religion, devised by a vicious and depraved sexual psychopath resentful.

      Now that he is the "fastest growing" is a complete sham, the really true is that is really has conversions but always within a context that deliberately forgets and is that ALL religions, ALL without exception ADEPTS LOSING spent decades in favor of people who do not follow ANY religion (atheists, agnostics or simply "non-practicing"), so that statement of "growth" is FALSE for the simple reason that nO increases, all decrease.

      Equally false is the concept of "true religion", THERE IS NO TRUE RELIGION because, first, NOT PROVEN the existence of any god and therefore even less you can prove that a particular course that God has said that religion is true.

      Having said all that, Islam NEVER be imposed in the world because it is clearly totalitarian despotism, denied a fundamental human right, THE FREE WILL, INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY thing that, increasingly, people are going realizing as it is also true that this swill ideology, despite confident assertion that "growth", only accounts for 23% of the population, as intelligent people realize start doing what centuries should have been done is that hogwash ERRADICATE the planet.

      To make matters worse, the supposed god of Islam speaking, this superlative stupidity of Allah, is laughable, for childlike minds so gullible illiterate and superstitious.

      Better would have been to humanity if the perpetrator and misogynous pederast Muhammad neck had been cut to 15 years.

      Stop Islam.

  • PJG

    I am not sure that most Muslims are just passive and peaceful. Actually I would NEVER use the word "peaceful" about ANY Muslim. How many of them don't commit murderous acts but approve of others who do? A Muslim cheering in front of his TV while the twin towers went down could not have been called peaceful. Even if they don't actually cheer but justify the deaths solemnly (as I would bet a majority do) they are not thinking in a peaceful way.
    Also, to say "the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late." might also be wrong. They didn't speak up at all, too late or ever. It is not as if everyone knew but remained silent, and today I think people genuinely believe all the PC rubbish in their heads. It's not a question of "speaking up". They really are in serious denial.

    “It is also known that the Wehrmacht (the “regular” German army) fully participated in the destruction of the Jews. Hitler openly, repeatedly, and loudly claimed that his main goal was the annihilation of all Jews. ”

    Just like Obama won over the left with spell-binding, chills up their legs, promises of ‘change’ and wonderful things for ‘America’, so did Hitler with the Germans. When Germans began seeing through him, there was nothing they could do if they valued their lives. That goes for the regular German army, as well. Yes, they could defy Hitler’s orders immediately before receiving a shot to the head.

    “The Jews were systematically starved, and were destined for eventual murder by the Germans.”

    We won’t find the following in our history textbooks, but estimates of between 11 to 20 million Germans were murdered and starved to death AFTER the war by the allies. Yes, USA, England, and Russia. Hatred for Germans was so intense, they spoke about killing all of them. Look up Eisenhower and what he said. He wanted all Germans dead! And, Jews were right there politically encouraging it. I suppose it was an ‘eye for an eye.’

    Many of these Germans were civilians, including women and children. I doubt women, then, and children even knew what was going on with Hitler. What happened to the millions of Germans Russians dragged off to Russia never to be seen again? What did the Jews do that made Hitler so angry? Not siding with him, mind you, but we know Jews worldwide made him very angry. How about calling for a boycott of Germany’s industries and other things done inside Germany. That doesn’t justify murder, but Jews are not lily white.

    All we hear about are Jews having been persecuted. Not one German complains about what happened to them. What about the millions of murdered Chinese. We don’t hear anything from them, either.

    If history is correct, Jews were involved in murdering millions of Russians during the Bolshevik Revolution and the Russian Royal family. Alexandar Solzhenitsyn flatly claims 66 million were killed. Israel says 20 million. How does Israel know?

    If Obama brings down our country, we are going to ask why was the left so blinded by his charm and orations.

    It’s best not to point fingers when carrying a lot of baggage, too.

    I am muslim and i found this “breath-taking”.
    Its true that the fanatics had made us looks like a terrorist, they made us looks like murderer. Even though, the most cruel thing we’ve ever done was destroying ourselves by keep silent over something we have to speak-up. Thank you for reminding.

  • rocky

    I’m Roman Catholic and have Muslim friends that actually do not trust the current pro Muslim Brotherhood regime in America.

  • emmavoberry

    ISIS has been killing Muslims, so certainly those dead Muslims are quiet. Al-Qaida has killed more Muslims than they have killed non-Muslims. Those Muslims too are silent. Jordan, a Muslim country is joining airstrikes against ISIS. I don’t call their action silence.

    Muslims have in common a world religion. That’s it. Muslims are not a state, an army, a group of people who have weapons and money to destroy terrorists that the military might of combined world powers has not been able to stop.

    A better analogy would be to look at Christianity’s silence when the KKK, a Christian terrorist group, tried to take over the South in America. But we would never look at that because we’d say, that’s ridiculous. And of course there were Christian churches preaching against racism and violence, individual Christians who denounced KKK. But there was no Christian counter-movement. Were Christians silent? No. But Christians were not law-enforcement. Christians were no counter-force. The KKK was lynching and burning Christians alive. Yes.


    In this case we have a sectarian ideology that is supported, disseminated, and funded by a Nation-State (Saudi-Arabia), being co-opted by terrorist armies who are killing civilian Muslims. A good question would be why is America silent on Saudi-Arabia’s involvement, not only in the Muslim sectarian belief system the terrorists espouse, but in the very creation of and continued existence of ISIS, of Al-Qaida (AP)?

    Can we enlist other Middle-Eastern states to fight them? Al-Qaida morphed into ISIS. In a sense, we have fought two wars against terror. Why would peace-loving Muslims’ speaking out destroy what two wars couldn’t?
    It’s not “Muslim silence” that enables terror.
    It’s not Muslims who don’t follow Wahhabism that can stop the teaching in Madrassas world-wide. Fat chance a Muslim has to stop the Saudis from flogging, stoning, beheading–it is its Muslim subjects it persecutes!

    And if we want to use the analogy, maybe we should correct a central fallacy in it. German citizens could not stop the Nazi machine. Germans who were not silent were killed. German citizens, the German Jews, were the victims. Some non-Jewish citizens certainly risked their lives to save Jews.
    The analogy does not hold, but is itself flawed.
    The guy with the gun has the last word, always.
    ISIS has guns, missiles, bombs, and loads and loads and loads of money.
    Some more Muslims can write editorials. Some more can express some more of what Muslims world-wide have already expressed, their total disavowal of ISIS ideology, of terrorism, and their distaste for the mass diffusion of Wahhabism ideology. But that has been going on since the 1920’s. Guess who started that?
    King Azziz.
    The House of Saud.
    It’s not Muslim silence that should be called out. It is international silence, the silence of Western powers.
    Easier I suppose to point the finger at some Muslims, some old Imams and ask them to stop ISIS than talk about the real action that would have to be undertaken. And who wants that? War with Saudi Arabia and its supporters?
    Would that even help?
