After the Jews, Christians. After the Christians, Sunnis and Shias?

It is incumbant upon those Muslims who sit on the side, maybe out of fear; it is to you this question is posed. You have a duty to speak out in great numbers.

There are some of you with great integrity whom have taken to the press. They have taken this great chance with their very lives at stake. It is to them the appluase is due. But what about the rest of you? Shame is your dinner. Eat it well.

There are several reasons why you do not speak out against this outrageous behavior. Some of them quite understandable. These are cold blooded murderers. You must, however, remember this little parable which was made popular due to the genocide that occurred in WWII.
    They came for the Jews, and I said nothing. They came for Christians, and I said nothing. They came for my neighbor, and I said nothing. They came for me, and there was no one left to speak.
Please reconsider your silence. It should not be mistaken for acceptance of what these murderers are doing. Maybe if there were another stance added?
    They came for the Sunnis, and I said nothing because I am Shia. Then the Sunnis who lived came for me, and there was no one left to speak.
It certainly is something to ponder. You know better than most that this is true.

It does not have to be this way, however. Gather yourselves together. Speak out against this tyranny caused by these fascists. You deplore they're senseless murders.

You have tasted individual liberty. You have tasted freedom. Religious freedom, freedom of the press, free speech, and freedom to gather with whomever you choose,

Do you not choose to have these freedoms? Then here is a recommenation: Live in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Yemen, etc. Take your pick. You should feel right at home with your ungrateful attitude.
