If we analyze correctly, we will see that those who commit violent acts don't care about you or me. We're left holding the Islamic bag, being ridiculed and called terrorist. The perpetrators also kill and maim fellow Muslims...where is brotherhood in this equation? Though it is only fitting to protest and condemn these attacks as Muslims and non-Muslim people. It's imperative that we do not alienate the Muslim community. For this is the breeding ground of extremism!! The more you categorize, exclude and withhold equality and protection from the Islamic youth. The more you block immigration, the more fallacious statements that are made about all Muslims,( via news media, publications ) the more heinous attacks will be seen. This is my observation and the effects of psychological damage done to the minds of people who are already forced to leave their motherland due to war..then they are rejected in their new home... How would you feel?
Just as we cannot rightly say that Jim Jones, Timothy McVeigh, Dylan Roof ,the infamous Ku Klux Klan and so many other countless unnamed terrorist who have brutalized, raped and tortured the indigenous peoples world wide do not represent the dogma of Christianity, those evil people do not represent Islam. Most of the suicide bombers are in fact uneducated people who haven't taken the time to read the Quran. Leaving them open to manipulation by more versed individuals who have personal agendas. They don't understand that some things should be taken figuratively, not literally as with all holy books..The illiterate, under educated youth, yield their personal power to be a righteous soul under God. Education is key!! These youngsters that grow into brainwashed, counter productive sheep, do not know what God is. God is all- knowing, God is love, God is compassion, God is forgiving, God is giving, most importantly God is intelligent.
Evident by the formation and intricate mechanism of our body, to the powerful workings of the infinite universe to the creative design of nature. God has too many great and beautiful attributes to list. Innumerable affirmations God is...
He or She is just is!!!
