Terrorism has no religion
It is well known to all that terrorist acts are carried out by terrorist organizations that are intended to sow discord and create chaos. They represent only themselves and do not represent communities and peoples. It is therefore unfair to classify the criminal and terrorist acts of a particular religion or sect. In this article I will send three messages to three different categories, regarding the terrorist attack on worshipers in New Zealand.
My first message to Muslim immigrants and others in general. Before we talk about racism, we must always remember the European countries and other countries that have opened their borders to immigrants from different religions, races. While many countries have closed their borders. Before we begin generalization and categorizing, we must remember how European and other people welcomed immigrants and shared with them housing, work, school and hospital. They treated the refugees with humanity regardless of religion, race and color. Terrorist action in New Zealand is an individual behavior supported by terrorist organizations. It does not represent a community or a sect and does not belong to any religion. Because Christianity, Islam and other heavenly religions deny bloodshed and call for peace, justice, equality and freedom of belief. Thus, we must not generalize individual behaviors over a whole society. When we want to assess society, we look at the behavior of the majority, In different countries in America, Australia and various European countries, who rushed to do a human fence to protect worshipers. Who found only tears to express their pain for what happened. So we must remember that, these countries was our homeland at time when we lost our identity and our homeland.
On the other hand, the offender pointed out that his motives were to reduce the rates of migration to Europe by intimidation and deportation. He considered immigrants are invaders of Europe. So my second message to some citizens of countries that, have received immigrants from different sects, races and Muslim refugees. Who are increasingly concerned about the spread of Islamic culture because of Muslim immigrants in their societies. But when they check it, They will find that the Muslims who are influenced by the culture of European society, not the reverse, and this is inevitable in order to live and integrate. As well as multiculturalism is also a positive thing in societies, and there is no danger to the original citizens, but it contributes to cultural richness.
This crime is an attempt to create chaos and motivational to do similar acts in different communities. Which will lead to acts of violence as an act and a retaliatory reaction to the innocent victims. I can say here, What is happening is an inevitable consequence of directing political discourse against immigrants everywhere and creating what is called Islamophobia. What happened was not surprising, because when the politicians of the extreme right direct their speech in a sectarian and racist way, that will lead the public who have short mind to employ it stupidly. So the real terrorism is the extremist politicians who incite hatred against other. Who killed by their extremist words, and their racist laws which, restrictions others' lives. The real killer who kills you indirectly, and appear through the media to sing on humanity, renounce racism, Freedom of religion, peaceful coexistence and the fight against terrorism.
This massacres will continue as long as there are those who feed terrorist cells and extremist ideology. This terrorist attack is also a serious indicator of the consequences of the escalating rhetoric of hatred, xenophobia and the spread of Islamophobia in many European countries, even those known as peaceful coexistence among their populations. Therefore, my third message is to politicians to review the way they conduct their dialogue and stop orient their political discourse against Muslims in particular and immigrants in general. Before there are more unsatisfactory results.
