"Silence in the Face of Evil is Evil Itself" Dietrich Bonhoeffer
As long as Americans are afraid to speak out against atrocities committed by a "protected" class, for fear of being called "Islamophobic," they will be parties to the destruction of Truth and Justice for everyone.
“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act” Dietrich Bonhoeffer, 1906-1945, German Lutheran Pastor.
In a recent article titled Why No Protests to Ban Islam's Black Flag?, Raymond Ibrahim asks why Muslims don't grapple with their own "troubled conscience" as Americans who have removed the Confederate flag have done.
How is it that Muslims aren't willing to place themselves "in the shoes of any and all who have dark shadows in their cultural and societal and ideological history"? Why don't they acknowledge the truth of "Islam's fourteen centuries of consistent barbaric behavior, under the black flag of divine sanction and command"?
Mr. Ibrahim states:
"Mass beheadings of Christians by Muslims in Libya, the rape and sexual assault of thousands if not a million British schoolgirls by Muslims, the death penalty for apostasy, blasphemy, and criticizing Islam: all stem from Muhammad's example and the commands in the Quran.
"As long as Muslims see no reason to apologize en masse or reform Islam, we shall continue to hammer on Islam's crimes against humanity, on the fact that 80% of mosques in the United States promote jihad and sharia law over the Constitution, and nearly 30% of U.S. Muslims think violence is justified against those who insult Muhammad.
"We are at a critical moment in human history, when proclaiming the truth about evil is essential for any people anywhere to have a free future. Solzhenitsyn warned that it is essential to expose evil itself - the evil ideology - as well as to punish the evildoers. Behold the Epitaph of America and Europe, from The Gulag Archipelago:
"'In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.'"
