For the next few days, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be discussing our upcoming Remembrance Day issues.
For those of you who aren't aware, here in Canada, November 11th is called Remembrance Day. At 11:00 a.m. on 11th day of the 11th month (November), in Ottawa and in other cities, towns and villages, those who fought and/or gave their lives for our freedom are honoured.
I received this by e-mail and thought I would share it with you, considering it is relevant to World War 2 (WW2) and today's world:
I thought you might like to ponder this one!
Subject: A Germans view on Islam
A German's View on Islam - worth reading! 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. 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 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 spectre of
fanaticsrampaging 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 honour-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. 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. So, extend yourself a bit and send
this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world-wide, read
this and think about it, and send it on - before it's too late.
Now Islamic prayers have 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?)
The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country
until the fanatics move in.
And we are silent.......
Are we silent? Some people are.
Why? Only God knows.
However, many may be silent due to being afraid to speak up. Some may want to avoid the issues that are affecting our world, today... in the hopes that if they keep their heads in the sand, the problems will go away.
But, they won't go away. Evilness is here to stay, until God once again takes control of the world and deals with it.
In fact, this world has been evil since the beginning of this creation.
Just as God told us in Genesis 6:5, " And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually"
The fact of the matter is that unless people come to faith in Jesus Christ, and gain salvation that will provide them with eternal life, they are evil in nature.
This applies to each of us. Every one of us.
Not every religious group believes that Jesus is the Son of God, who came to earth in the form of mankind, to die on a wooden cross for the sin of the world, of all who will believe. In fact, only true and complete Christianity understands this, and accepts God's Word, the Bible, as His truth.
For us, who are living in an era of near end times, we share the world with various religious groups. However, the only one who seems to want to do away with us and others, is Islam.
And, Islam's ideology of converting all infidels (unbelievers of Islam) peaceably if possible, but if not peacefully, then they believe they have the right to cut off our heads (kill us), will never change. After all, their holy books teach them this. And, they are taught to never question any of their teachings.
So, my friend... we must pray. And, trust God. For everything.
Until next time...
