Braden Files links to an op-ed by Paul E. Marek in Israel National News entitled “Why the Peaceful Majority is Irrelevant”. He writes:

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.

Marek concludes:

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.

There is another group of fanatics we need to fear just as much. They look like us, dress like us, talk like us and live amongst us. They spend every waking moment dreaming up ways to undermine us in this fight against an implacable enemy. Know their names: Pelosi, Murtha, Reid, Schumer, Murphy, Kennedy, Kerry, Obama, Edwards and hordes more. They have one thing in common; they are radical Democrats, one and all, and the moderate Democrats cannot hold them back.
