When 26-year-old Lance Corporal Jacinda Baker died in yesterday’s explosion, she became the first New Zealand female soldier to die in combat….
Three NZ soldiers killed in Afghanistan – ABCÂ –The last vehicle in a convoy was hit by a roadside bomb, northwest of Do Abe, on the road to Romero.
(Reuters) – Another NATO soldier was killed on Sunday by an Afghan police officer, raising the coalition death toll from so-called “green on blue” shootings to nine in 11 days as the United States urged Kabul to step up screening of recruits.

Meanwhile, back in New Zealand:
Plans have been unveiled to build an Islamic outreach centre in Rotorua, the first of its kind in New Zealand.
The Aotearoa Islamic Culture and Outreach Centre will include a mosque, library, outreach hall and a Quran museum.
Silence gives Islamic fanatics credence
When two of our young soldiers are shot down in the prime of their lives a fierce hatred against the perpetrators wells up in me. It is the fanaticism driving these people that really scares me.
Doctor Emanuel Tanya is a respected psychiatrist and has written a paper giving his view of Islam fanaticism. I quote from it and share it with you because it answers many of the questions I have.
He puts Islamic fanaticism into context, aligning it with the same fanaticism that drove the Nazis, the Russian Communists and the Japanese.
He tells of a man whose family was part of the German aristocracy before World War II. They owned large industries and estates.
“Very few people were true Nazis but many enjoyed the return of German pride,” the aristocrat claimed.
“Many more including myself were too busy to care. We thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools and so we just sat back and let it happen. Then before we knew it, they owned us and we had lost control.”
His family lost everything and he ended up in a concentration camp. “The Allies then destroyed my factories,” he sadly concluded.
The doctor reminds us that we are told time and time again by so-called experts that Islam is the religion of peace and the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in that peace.
“Although this is true, it is entirely irrelevant; it is meaningless fluff meant to make us feel better. It is meant somehow to diminish the spectre of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.”
The fact is that these wide-eyed fanatics rule Islam at this time. It is the fanatics who march. It is the Islamic fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa. They are slowly and surely taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave of fanaticism. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder or “honour kill”. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers. The doctor rightly claims that “the hard quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the ‘silent majority,’ is cowed and extraneous.”
Communist Russia was comprised of people who just wanted to live in peace, yet Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of more than 20 million people. The ‘peaceful majority’ became irrelevant.
China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese fanatical Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million of their own people; student fanatics running around waving a little Red Book.
He talks of the average Japanese individual who, prior to World War II, was not a war mongering sadist. Yet, Japanese fanatics murdered and slaughtered their way across Southeast Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians, most killed with sword, shovel or bayonet.
His paper draws together these awful facts by pointing out that history lessons are often incredibly blunt. And yet for all our power of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points; peace loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Soon he claims the peace loving Muslims will wake up like the Germans and find that the fanatics own them.
“Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Somalis, Nigerians and may others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late,” he concluded.
Sometimes we are not just silent but we give the fanatics credence. Apparently Islamic prayers are being allowed to be introduced into Toronto and other public schools in Canada by the compliant authorities, whilst the Christian’s Lord’s Prayer has been removed because it is too offensive. The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being, but wait until the fanatics move in.
So what do we do, we who watch these fanatical outrages unfold on our TVs? Maybe it is right for us to have our soldiers in Afghanistan, putting themselves ‘in harms way’ to stop the progress of these fanatics. But we pay an awful price.
Will we continue to be silent . . ?
