God bless the person that wrote this. It’s sad to see that it’s 2015 and that things haven’t changed (including biased reporting in media). My prayers go out to all of humanity. The victims of this week’s tragedies all over the world deserve to be in our prayers and not just one or the other. Obviously, the media is only going to use the story that fits their agenda the most – exploiting tragedies to create more tragedies just like they did with 9/11. This has to change and so do people’s level of awareness of what’s happening all around the world and not just one place that the media chooses to report on. We’re living in the Internet era and it’s not meant to be hard to get real stories from real people. We have citizen journalism now and even pages like HONY opening up the eyes of people, combating the misconceptions they have towards people of another race or religion, and reminding us that we’re all human.
What’s really strange is that yesterday I noticed the global mainstream media posting articles on ISIS. I thought, “What’s up with all the news on ISIS lately?” One of the prominent ones was on Jihadi John (this name is utterly cringe-worthy and clown-like) and how he had been found and killed by a drone strike. Then, a couple of hours later, the Paris attacks occurred. Considering that mainstream media is owned by the same type of people that spread propaganda and perpetrate war, I have no doubts that the Paris attacks were orchestrated by them using ISIS, but who will get the blame? Muslims, as always.
What people don’t seem to understand that ISIS aren’t Muslims. Their strategy is to pose as Muslims while doing the dirty work of the people pulling the strings. ISIS have, in fact, killed more Muslims than non-Muslims and have also attacked several mosques, which are places of worship for Muslims… Surely, Allah isn’t going to be pleased with them! Now here’s the interesting bit, the Qur’an has mentioned that people will use religion and twist it to commit evil, but you know what happens to them? They will end up going straight to hell. So whatever warped up ideology ISIS follow to “enter heaven”, it’s NOT Islam. They are far removed from the religion, but why doesn’t mainstream media report on any of this? Why do they turn a blind eye? Why can’t Muslims, for once, be given a voice about it in global press!? I already know the answer, but I pose this question for those that are quick to blame Muslims and Islam for what is happening.
As one of my friends on Facebook posted today: “Praying for all of the Muslims in the western world who are going to be abused and vilified in the media as a result of these attacks. Praying for all the Muslims in the western world who constantly feel obligated to prove their humanity and are forced to apologize for crimes that they did not commit. Praying for all those who have had to leave their homes behind in fear of terrorism, and are now being forced to answer for it abroad.”
Couldn’t have said it any better. Another post that I saw a friend share was this and the OP nailed it when she said, “I have a feeling our selective use of #WeAreWith hashtags has something to do with the problem of terrorism and hate itself”:
I hope that people wake up and also realize that the attacks that have happened in Paris happen every day in countries like Palestine, Syria, and elsewhere. Every. Single. Day. The people that are dying there are humans too just like you and I. Not until mainstream media openly gives an answer to us on why they don’t report on the people there and their struggles, ESPECIALLY in Palestine (I’m looking at you Zionist-owned media), or allow Facebook to utilize an option for changing our profile picture with the colors of the Palestinian flag, or any other Middle Eastern country in turmoil, and show the world what is happening, will I let go of the notion that there’s a sinister motive by the people in power. Nevertheless, I thank the people around the world that actually understand and have stood up for Muslims and know the difference between Muslims and ISIS and don’t paint us all the same. When I see such people, I realize that there’s still a sense of humanity in this world.
However, it’s a disturbing world we live in where not only innocent people are killed like in places likes Paris and elsewhere, but a whole other group of innocent people are put down for something they didn’t commit. For the criminals that are doing this as part of their agenda, they probably see this as “killing two birds with one stone”. When the division occurs, nobody benefits except them, and potentially for those in power, their military-industrial complex that they wish to establish. The sale of weapons during war to reap profit is nothing unheard of.
When I think of the people behind-the-scenes, the hypocritical world leaders, the Zionists, and the terrorists (which can also include the before-mentioned three)… the song In this World (Murder) by Good Charlotte from their album, The Chronicles of Life and Death, comes to mind. Some of the lyrics are:
No matter how hard they try and
No matter how loud they cry
Buy their way into heaven
No matter how hard they try and
No matter how high they climb up the ladder
They won’t reach up into heaven
The song also mentions the murder of innocent people occurring because of greed for money. That’s what all of these terrorist attacks and wars are about at the end of the day. Sometimes I can’t help but think that we’re living in the real life Hunger Games. As dramatic as that sounds, the world of the Hunger Games draws a close parallel to our own world. You can even read a bit about it here. It’s only a matter of time when people all over the world will also be under mass surveillance because of these attacks and our rights are taken away one by one. Being put into a state of fear gives the people above more power to control… power to control what we do, power to control what we say, power to control what we think, power to control what we believe, power to control our whole life. Tell me, where’s the freedom?
