Roots of Fanaticism

Thanks, Debrata, for liking the mail.We like to blame everyone, but each one of us are to blame for the violence and fanaticism in this world. We don't know who we are, that's why we slot people in "us" versus "them".The militarists are only fanning our fears, ignorance and insecurity. Had we known who we are, we would never be fearful or insecure.We would have instictively known that the entire Existence is our natural inheritance and is ever ready to give us everything. The only problem is that we aren't ready to receive because we are too confused and fickle.
                                    Peace is our only hope.Peace is non negotiable.The ordinary, common people(99.99%) of all religions, including Islam, want to just get on with their lives,and their children to return home at night, safe and secure.
Best regards,

Dear Avinash,
 Your writings are really very much true and practical. Many a time I thought in the same line. But in this mundane world again work under the direction of the same people of ruler.I want to add a small view of mone i.e. for any artilcle in this world people or the seller give live demonastration and adopt many other form of promtion but gun selling has  got no conventional way of promotion therefore only way to show the efficacy and power of Gun is by giving life demonstration of killing people and this is very much applicable for replacing the obsolate type of gun also.
Thanks Again for your valueable information.

Dear Jayant,
                   The issue of fanaticism is more nuanced and complex.We must examine how the fanatics come to exercise so much power that the "silent majority" is stunned to silence.
                                   Take the case of MNS, for instance.The largest political formation in the country has directly benefited from the rise of MNS in this first-past-the- post electoral politics that we have. So it blinks at Raj Thackeray who runs amok.Almost all cases of fanaticism begin like this.
                                    Which is the most powerful force in the world today? The armament industry, as almost 20% of the world's GDP of $40 trillion is spent on armaments.So this industry employs lobbyists to MANUFACTURE hatred throughout the world.Any issue is good enough for this.
                                     Osama bin Laden started his career as a CIA operative, and there are reports that CIA money is still going into the hands of the terrorists through the ISI.Can we not say that both the secret agencies are systematically fomenting hatred and violence, so that the sale of armaments goes on unimpeded.All wars in history have actually been "manufactured" by militarists for obvious reasons.
                                             Therefore it is imperative that ordinary people like us not fall prey to such disinformation. I would say our ONLY enenmies are illiteracy, disease and malnutrition. There are more issues that unite us than divide.Let us come together on these issues and not be misled by the propoganda of the Militarists. War is the greatest curse for us, but this cannot be got rid of by falling into the "us" versus "them" dichotomy.
                                     I have a feeling that this Forward is yet another disinformation spread by the militarists.
                                                                                                                                                              &a mp;a mp;n bsp;          Avinash

Subject: [IT-BHU-BatchOf1982 ] Fwd: German's view of Islam

German's view of Islam
This is one of 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 Tanay, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist.

 A German's View on Islam
 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 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 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, Japanmurdered 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 fromGermany, 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.
