Why the Peaceful Majority is Irrelevant

by Paul E. Marek

History lessons are often incredibly simple.

“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 spectre 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.

Indeed, the peaceful majority in Islam IS irrelevant.  They are barely ever heard from when their Muslim brothers do these evils. Whether the majority of Islamic religion is peaceful or not is irrelevant because the religion itself is evil and violent. The ‘extremists’ are the ones who are more honest in living up to the Koran in its edicts.   Mr Marek pulls out such a good point in this.

  1. And for further indictment of them, those peaceful Muslims living in the West won’t cooperate with the authorities when the extremists come to town. They know that the authorities desperately want their help, and that they’ll be protected. You know what that tells me? They are at best ambivalent about the goals of the true believers. At worst, they are sympathetic to them if not in total agreement.

  2. Completely off-topic:

    Hi Morris! I couldn’t say hello before because of the comment lock. I hope you’re doing well!

  3. Great to see you posting again! Anything I say is just preaching to the choir, of course.

  4. Arielle! I’m rediculously pleased to hear from you!

    Good to hear from you as well, Serena.

  5. Aww, thanks! I’ll be lurking and even posting occasionally (when I’m not being lazy).

    Always good to see something posted here and to know you’re still drifting around with us on the internets.
