The Attack on Paris.
Firstly, I condemn any attacks anywhere on Earth, whether they are made in the name of God, for selfishness, for wealth or for any other reason that goes against humanity.
But, I know I might sound biased, but when it comes to terrorism and injustice, but why does the the media cover news related to first world countries and the religion Islam is always to be blamed?
True, ISIS identifies itself as Muslims, but they do not follow the teachings of Islam.
And, oh yes. We have heard about Baghdad, Syria, Lebanon, Beirut, Pakistan, Palestine, blah blah blah here and there. But when the attack on Paris commenced, why did Facebook only create a “Support Paris” flag filter? Was is not aware about Lebanon the previous day? Or about Palestine some months ago?
I myself shared news (limited to Facebook “share”) about how 4 kids were slaughtered by a drone attack…and they were on a beach! What were they doing there? making atom bombs? These four kids younger than, I believe, 15? There had been news of many more attacks before that. I gave up sharing it as it made no difference. Of course, how can just sharing some news do on a platform with limited viewers?
Then, I heard just yesterday that there had been a counter attack by Paris on Raqqa, Syria – the main “Islamist”city. Sure, I understand the terrorists may be hiding out there, but what about the normal residents? I cannot find any news related to how many are injured, how many are dead, and of the purpose of this attack was served or not. Why was this not covered in the news like the way the attacks on Paris were?
I believe, this all is just fuel to the fire rising against the real Muslims. Yes. There is a difference between Muslims and Terrorists. You see, a Muslim maybe your neighbour with their women wearing hijab and praying 5 times a day, with manners of greeting and inviting for lunch/dinner/etc, and smiling as it is asked of a person to be acceptant of others (or maybe a “modern Muslim” as this is, of course, 2015).
But as far as my knowledge of terrorists go, they are people, who would in their own methods, the so called self proclaimed Muslims, force it upon others, and won’t be afraid to kill or die. They are extremists who actually harm other humans, no matter what religion country, culture they belong to. If they were really Muslims, why would they kill their own fellow followers of the same religion?
The lives that were lost are a great tragedy, especially to “events” such as terrorism. No one deserves to die in such a horrendous way. Not the people in Paris, not the people in Palestine, in Syria, in any other country that is facing war or, the correct term, political hoaxes. I condemn any mindless war for the sake of selfishness. Because, who suffers after the dead are buried?
The Social Media. In all it’s glory, is a biased propaganda controlled by those who the banks and governments are indebted to. That’s of course, just my guess and anger speaking. But If we only blame ISIS, then who in the world is funding them?
If this has offended anyone, I would like to apologize. But unless the differences are cleared out, we cannot have peace. I am sure billions of others have done a better job than I have in trying to ask for an answer and many are still doing more, or, many others, through the most powerful methods of social media used, are out there spreading more hate.
I just want to go to sleep and wake up to another day knowing that everyone else also wakes up to another peaceful day.
