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
and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family
lost esssverything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies
destroyed my factories.’
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.
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
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
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
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.
Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many
others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until
it was too late.

Just look at the back of some of the most popular chocolate bars, and
at other food items in your local supermarket. Food on aircraft have
the halal emblem (see the attachment), just to appease the privileged

(NaturalNews) Of the world’s great powers, China, is perhaps the most restrictive when it comes to freedom of speech and expression. That said, it should come as little surprise, then, that the Communist Party leadership of China works overtime to monitor, control and censor what the Chinese people are allowed to see on the wide, wide Web.
As noted by McClatchy Papers in a recent piece, that monitoring – the “Great Firewall,” as it is – takes place behind a large, walled-off compound near Beijing’s Forbidden City known as Zhongnanhai. There, technicians answerable to the Party manage China’s 24-hour control of all Internet traffic into, out of, and within the country.
That hasn’t stopped Chinese media activists in the United States, for example, from attempting to breach the Great Firewall. For example, McClatchy said, from a Berkeley, Calif., cottage 5,900 miles from Zhongnanhai, staffers of collect, translate and publish a number of censorship directives that the Chinese Communist Party sends to state-controlled media:
They aggregate breaking news deemed “sensitive” by China’s rulers and highlight the codewords Chinese people invent to get around the censors.
“There is no way you could take all these critical voices and party directives and put them together on one website in China. It would be taken down immediately,” Xiao Qiang, chief editor of China Digital Times and an adjunct professor at the University of California, Berkeley, told McClatchy. “But outside the Great Firewall you can do that. And that is what we do.”
Welcome to the front lines of the effort to crack censorship in one of the world’s most media-controlled environments.
Xiao founded China Digital Times in 2003 and since then it has become a go-to site for English speakers wanting to keep up with China’s Internet and its 640 million “netizens.” Chinese censors blocked the site in 2006; in 2011 he launched a Chinese language site, but that, too, was eventually blocked. So Xiao and his team now use a number of different methods to make the publication much more accessible in China, including email lists, social media and “mirror sites” that cannot be blocked easily.
In the United States, meanwhile, authoritarians who also want to control narratives, spread propaganda and censor the truth are hard at work doing the same kinds of things that the Chinese censors at Zhongnanhai do. Here are some examples of how U.S. Internet access is controlled, altered or censored outright:
Google censors alternative medicine and other subjects
“The growing problem for Internet censorship is not isolated to one country or one region,” Davidson said before the Congressional-Executive Commission on China (ironically enough). “No single company and no single industry can tackle Internet censorship on its own.”
Since then, however, Google has censored an anti-war web site, blocked access to vitamins and natural mineral supplements, and has used undue, unusually generous access to the Obama administration to, perhaps, blunt the impact of a Federal Trade Commission investigation into alleged antitrust practices, in which Google may have skewed its search results to favor its own products over those of other advertisers.
The world’s “free Internet encyclopedia” has been caught altering information, censoring data outright and propagandizing, as evidenced by one of its co-founders changing Wikipedia entries to hide his connection to the porn industry.
The Internet “kill switch”
In November 2013, a federal court ruled that the Department of Homeland Security must disclose previously secret plans the massive agency developed for an Internet kill switch – “Standard Operating Procedure 303,” also known as the “Internet kill switch” from Homeland Security. The protocols govern shutting down wireless networks to prevent the remote detonation of bombs, the Washington Times reported.
When you throw in the new “Net neutrality” rules, the Department of Justice seizing Internet domains without due process and so forth, you can begin to see how the U.S. is already a long way down the road to Chinese-style censorship.
