In the email entitled "A German View of Islam", the article was attributed to an author name of Dr. Emanuel Tanya. The correct name spelling is Dr. Emanuel Tanay...not Tanya (Tanay was cited as the original author.). However, Dr. Tanay did not author the piece, it was Paul Marek. Please read the cite correction below. -- rfh
(Wikipedia biograph: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emanuel_Tanay)
Dr. Tanay did author a telling and equally compelling essay, entitled:
"A MAN WITHOUT A COUNTRY" by - Emanuel Tanay, M.D.
It can be read at: http://www.drtanay.com/article1.html
Summary of the eRumor:
This is a forwarded article alleged to have been written by Dr. Emanuel Tanay called "A German's View on Islam."

Dr. Emanuel Tanay is real and a holocaust survivor but he did not write this article, nor is he German. This is an opinion piece that appeared on the web site of Paul Marek, who wrote it in March 2007 under the title of "Why the Peaceful Majority is Irrelevant."
Click for original version of article.
Dr. Emanuel Tanay, the son of Jewish dentists, was born in Russian occupied Vilna in 1928, which is now part of Poland, according to the personal account of his life in a Polish ghetto during the Holocaust.
Marek's article was apparently altered and posted on several reader and comment boards on the World Wide Web. Some altered versions include Marek as the author and cite Tanay as the original forwarder of the story.
Paul E. Marek is a second-generation Canadian, whose grandparents fled Czechoslovakia just prior to the Nazi takeover.
