Carol just sent me an email with an interesting article written by Paul Marek, who writes a blog here:
Anyway, the article that is interesting is this one:
It’s a bit more than a year old, but absolutely timeless. I’ll give you a couple paragraphs from his blog entry, and ask you to go and read the rest yourself.
He writes about a German friend:
â€œVery few people were true Nazisâ€ he said, â€œbut, 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.â€
And, a little later in the article, Paul writes this:
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. Chinaâ€™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 2 was not a war mongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of Killing that included the systematic killing 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 â€œpeace lovingâ€.Â
I’m not sure that I could have said it better myself.Â
TheÂ MuslimsÂ stand on the brink of history in the same way that the German people didÂ when Hitler came to power. We also stand on the brink of history inÂ the same way that the rest of the world stood before Hitler.
We should pray that weÂ will succeed where our forefathers failed.

Thanks also for Carol for letting me know about the above.
