“Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it “
Edmund Burke (1729-1797)
As much of America sleeps, the enemy advances his cause; but fortunately he uses the same MO as he has in the past!!!
So as the Apostle Paul admonished us to do in the Bible:
“Let us not be ignorant of Satan’s devices!”
The Nazi Experience and Radical Islamic Fundamentalism
September 9, 2008
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.
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.
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.
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 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, 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 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 world wide, read this -think about it – and send it on.
Emanuel Tanay, M.D.
There are people who say that anyone who writes and warns people through blogs or whatever media they may use, that they are fear mongers, and are generating fear needlessly; when the truth is the master terrorist’s mode of operation is actually working, and I’m talking here about the one who is pulling all the lesser pinion’s chains, like puppets on a string, and this puppet master’s name is Satan (aka,the Devil).
Satan’s battle plan is often to create a diversion and distract attention away from what is actually going on by creating enough internal pressure and fear, that people are afraid of facing the truth, and are just hoping if they close their eyes long enough it all will go away.
Did not Jesus also warn us not to be fooled; when He said for us to be “Wise as serpents, and harmless as doves?“ He also warned us what the scenario would be in the last days; and what would be the signs of the times that would indicate His Second Coming.
Hey folks, is anyone paying attention; is anyone reading their Bibles, because just look around you, those signs are unfolding right before our eyes… and yet still America sleeps!
We were once called the “Land of the free and the home of the brave,” where we not?
Well let us all pray this sleeping giant called the American church wakes up to reality, and that the troops start forming their ranks, because America is about to face the BIGGEST test of its history in a very short time.
How we react and what we do now is very important. It doesn’t take many to activate God’s Army, but it does take concentrated advanced air support, called intercessory prayer;
The Bible tells us in Deuteronomy 32:30 that: “One can put a thousand enemies to flight, and two can put ten thousand enemies to flight;” well with those odds just imagine what we can do when we all come together.
Check this out, with the addition of each prayer warrior, the odds go up 10 fold, in our favor; and so the battle odds are very definitely on our side, and don’t you know the enemy knows it too… but greater is He who is in us and with us (the church), than he who is in the world!
In the New Testament we are instructed: “When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action. And when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I will be there.” (Matthew 18:19-20, The Message Bible)
We are told many, many times in the Bible about the importance of prayer; and that we should “pray without ceasing“. (1 Thessalonians 5:8, KJV)
Paul tells us in Philippians 4:6 that we should “not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
So here’s the deal folks, God does answer prayer; but we have to pray!!! Selah
