Our world has become a massive battlefield. We got too complicated and too ignorant. Our hearts bled till they died and we started crying blood till we became bloodless… everything inside of us has become a ‘less’.
We started believing lies, assuming the worst, judging things we don’t know and acting like fools.
But aren’t we?
We let some filthy politicians steal our lands, acting like victims and we just clapped for them. We gave them control, power, just because of words they said to fool us.
But again, aren’t we fools?
They created ISIS, some barbarians who don’t even have houses to live in but somehow managed to get bombs and weapons. And they called themselves Muslims.
The problem isn’t there, the problem remains where some ignorant people started believing them and blaming a religion of peace just because other people decided the religion’s name fits their needs, I wonder what would happen if they named themselves John Cena squad. After all, that name does fit them, because somehow, with all the advanced technology, we never managed to find them, even with their members getting larger.
I personally want to send a thank you message to all the media, not some, but all of them.
And obviously, if you didn’t catch that, I was being sarcastic.
You are liars.
Nothing will change that fact. However people believe you, thank you for lying about something I know its truth because that’s when I stopped listening to you.
America invaded Iraq because of their rich land, and smart people. They burnt their books, stole their petrol, and then somehow after that ISIS existed. That’s when they found a reason to kill thousands of people, children, women, old men, sick persons in the name of “Bombing the terrorists hiding places.”
Somehow, all the sent bombs always go directly to villages where people are hiding from war.
And of course, you blamed Muslims.
Tell me; are you people fighting terrorism or Islam?
The problem got bigger and the media made it worse. People start pointing fingers at us, the Muslims, and with the appearance of the terrorist attacks, as an innocent girl who lives a usual life, I got blamed for things criminals did, some people who will NEVER represent Muslims, NEVER represent me.
I tried explaining, but it was like talking to a wall, once they have nothing to say, they start insulting me and searching for imperfections in my words, if not searching for a double meaning. But you know what most of them said?
They say «They’re Muslims so this must be something your religion teaches. And if they are Muslims and they’re acting that way, then you’re like them. The children who get killed were going to grow up to be terrorists.»
You know, before I answer you all once for all, I want to tell you something, you do realize it hurts to be compared to such cruel monsters, right? if you give an absolute 1st impression about someone you don’t even know their favourite colour, it is just nasty.
When I was young I always dreamt of visiting other countries, meeting new people and learning new cultures. I thought that people understood and that they can’t judge nations by judging few disowned members. I thought they know people are different. And most of all… I thought that as humans, as being the ones who shouted to have equality and mutual respect between everyone, I thought they’d know that every single one of us carries a heavyweight of flaws and drawbacks.
I just thought that they will understand that people aren’t perfect.
But I was so wrong. Now, I’m afraid because I’m different. I’m a Muslim and I can be abused or killed because of that.
But oh wait, you won’t call the criminal a terrorist then, you’ll say they’re a mentally unstable person (Yeah and the terrorist is totally mentally okay.) and you’ll just name him a killer.
When your kid gets severely bullied, you don’t call that terrorism.
When your kid goes to school and shoots their school friends, you don’t call that terrorism (unless the kid is a Muslim.)
When you still treat black people as if you’re better than them, you never called that terrorism. You even avoid talking about the unfair cases where cops shot black teens and adults, just because they felt ‘threatened’.
When you find your city full of gangs and serial killers, you don’t call that terrorism.
Because it comes from you, because you misunderstood the meaning of terrorism, because you thought that terrorism only hit you from US (not the United States, because that’s a bit true.), that we don’t suffer from it like you do, that if it was in Arabs countries, it’s worth it because like the lie says ‘we’re all terrorists, we’re just killing each other ‘.
When each day in Syria, Palestine, Iraq, Yaman, Burma… etc thousands die, you don’t write #prayfor…, no you only write that when twelve of you die. I’m not saying those 12 lives don’t matter (I know you love twisting my words.) what I’m saying is ALL lives matter.For that, defend them all.
The attack that happened in London and the Muslim girl in America (2017), many of you said « it’s a revenge. » and many said worst. Some of you got to the new level of funny ignorance and said «That’s how we can stop terrorism. »
One question, how does killing someone who lives peacefully and has a family to feed will stop terrorism, or how will hitting a girl to death just because she’s a Muslim will stop terrorism?
That’s an attempt to stop Islam. (You’ll never succeed.)
AND THAT’S TERRORISM.
You’ll still deny it, but that also is called Islamophobia.
If you say that Islam promotes violence, did you read and get informed?
If a bunch of Christians commit a crime, will you blame the religion?
In Islam, in wars, it’s totally forbidden to hurt innocent, women, children, old people, sick ones, plants and animals.
So how can Islam promote violence on a daily basis?
In Islam, if you kill a person, despite their beliefs, it’s like you’ve killed a whole nation. And if you saved a soul, it’s like you saved a whole nation.
See how little you know about the real religion? And how big you thought you knew just according to some crazy/paid people who claim to be something they’re not… but still got you all and made you believe them.
Don’t take a sentence from Quran that has a lot before it and a lot behind it, and a deep background and tell me to look here’s an example.
A dark sky replaced the sunny day and the black became the new controller. I wished I didn’t dream so big before I grow up.
When I was young, I thought that growing up and facing the world as who I am would be exciting. I built an image in my mind about this happy, cheerful future where everyone will be caring and loving.
But now… I’m numb.
As a Muslim and an Arab girl who lives in an Arab country, I didn’t find anything but broken glasses reflecting an obscure thought of a dark unknown and pessimist judgment.
I was and I am judged for my beliefs, race and simple dreams.
So how can anyone say it’s cancer and it should be removed and deleted?
You know nothing.
I wonder who to blame if someone decided to yell “To Narnia!” before killing.
I wonder if you blamed Christianity when a christen kills, or when KKK practice their hobbies or even when gangs with Christen members kill and steal.
I’m just wondering…
It hurts. It hurts like hell to see people judging us and our religion with so much ignorance.
We are drowning in sorrow. People are testing our limits with insulting us on a daily routine.
Islam is perfect. It’s a religion, it’s meant to contain everything and to be understood correctly.
None of us is… none of us is perfect.
We’re so imperfect.
We have emotions; sadness, depression, happiness and anger.
People may react differently to the pressure and the hatred they’re facing… Some of us can just drink from their own burnt blood and others can react, violently. And when they do, all of you will start shouting the Look! Here’s an example of Islam. It’s all about violence. They should all die… extent.
Put yourselves in our positions, imagine yourself hearing people from all around the world insulting something they don’t even know about you and everything related to you and comparing you to some monsters who kill with the name of something they don’t belong to.
Tell me if you’re strong enough to handle that for years.
You’ll either end up believing you’re as bad as they say, or you’ll fight and end up hated for the rest of your life for being you.
A lot had said before that what’s happening in Syria, Palestine, Iraq… is normal and they’re used to it… used to seeing kids die and blood everywhere… used to it until 1% of it happens it their countries. Then they won’t say it’s normal.
Because they’re not used to that.
What about all lives matter? Just words…? Or does the word lives only refers to a group of people?
You’re used to your country helping to remove the terrorists (when no one asked for help) and promoting the idea of terrorism=Islam. Other than that, 80% of the bombs are thrown at peaceful villages where children and women are hidden.
Iraq, it didn’t start because of the terrorism. It started because if the petrol… but the rest followed.
Palestine, they stole the land and named it Israel. It didn’t change its name. And actually, there’s still a war in Palestine and children are still dying daily.
I’ve seen them on TV. I’ve seen parents holding their kids’ lifeless bodies between their hands, crying, surrounded by a fallen home. I’ve also seen them trying to comfort their hungry, starving children.
I’ve also seen kids standing in front of armoured cars, throwing stones at it. They knew that it’s worthless but they were just trying to protect their country. They wanted a free country, no war.
Girls dreamt of having dolls to play with, but instead, they were hugging their parents’ bodies… or what was left.
Boys dream of playing football in the neighbourhood, but there was no neighbourhood anymore.
Schools were exploded. Schools full of young, innocents kids.
Kids who were so excited about going to school and learning but their dreams were finished before even starting.
A then, someone whose name shall never be named decided it’s time to Jerusalem to become the capital of Israel?
How can you make Jerusalem a capital for something that doesn’t exist? I know what most will say.
“Are you living under a rock? it’s been Israel for ages.”
I can’t blame people who only have two TV news-channels that can control the news that they want to hide or show.
But I blame them when they act like they know everything.
Tell me, if someone came to your country, claiming it was his, 3000 years ago, and you turn to find the other countries that are supposed to be your supporter, your other family, turn its back to you, selling your own country, will you accept your fate?
Even after hundred years, you’ll think it’s worth it to fight for your country.
Don’t give me the “There are peaceful people living in Isreal.”
THERE WERE PEACEFUL PEOPLE LIVING IN PALESTINE, no?
Go watch the interview with Israliens where they said: “We should kill Arabs, they stole our land, they should vanish, get out of ‘our’ land.
What’s the point of being one of the most democratic and advanced countries if the people’s minds are narrow, racist, violent and sometimes 404NotFound?
I’m not hating on jews, or their religion, I’m telling what I’ve seen, not from the Jewish people, but from what you call “Israliens.”
Jerusalem will always be the capital of Palestine, and no one has the right to claim it.
I’m sorry that Arabs sold one of their lands years ago, I’m sorry that we didn’t fight for it and I’m sorry for all children, women, men, trees and animals that died there.
Images will never be erased from my mind, and peace will never come upon my soul. I know it’s bad; to let hatred control you, but it’s nearly impossible to control it. Since some people decided to name someplace in Palestine Israel, the war came blowing people away from their homes, from children who were left homeless, orphans and handicap to pregnant women being tortured to death. The one who died with full dignity is the one who had his body pieces attached.
They talked about freedom, about peace and love, yet they didn’t give the Palestinians a chance to experience it since they took their lives away from them before they can gasp for air. It’s like a perfect image being shattered under an unpleasant symphony of war machines and gunshots, screams and cries.
I can’t say anything but I’m sorry, our ‘leaders’ are cowards, our tongues are tied and our hope to be united was long gone when we decided money is more important than our sisters and brothers.
I won’t say none of us cares, some may do, but others don’t.
I’m sorry, after seeing what happened to you, how it came to the moment some people don’t know what Palestine is, when we reached the point people believe you’re the criminal, I can only say I’m sorry. When people are now saying that they would not give a damn just because it’s not touching them directly, I can say nothing. Blood, tears, broken bones and souls, that’s the new history that will be told about Palestine. If only people understood that in order to fix that, it needs more than few pictures that will be posted and forgotten, change starts from within, we lost courage ages go, we let ourselves be a shadow that they can give up on once they reach the darkness they want.
Imagine, just imagine yourself being kicked out of your country, even though I know many of you have lost their patriotism.
Imagine your closed ones getting smashed under what’s left of what you used to call home. Imagine if you can never meet your best buddies, have fun, play football in the neighbourhood or just the usual small talk.
Imagine yourself sleeping with one eye open because some ‘peaceful’ people who want to settle in your country thought about doing a full extermination before they settle in.
I know that for now, I can’t do anything but talking, but the least I can do is hoping that none of us forgets that Palestine will always be Palestine, and Jerusalem will always be its capital. We’re not discussing religion or races, we’re discussing the right to own your land, the right to not be kicked off of your country or to sell and buy other countries. We’re discussing the fact that outside countries who are making these stupid new terms and laws, should mind their own business and stop acting as if they are the mother of this world.
Dear trump, I know you won’t read this, but you need to know, you’re the president of the USA and not the president of the world. If you want to make Israel exist, give it one of the states, you have enough states, and one of them can be the capital of the fandom named Israel.
Other than that, we need to change.
We need some education.
We need to stop mirroring who we hate and stop judging the book by its cover.
We just need to stop.
We’re all tired so let’s take a deep breath and focus.
The first step is to stop misjudging and racism.
Stop accusing religions of some actions that have nothing to do with it.
Stop hating people because they’re Muslims or Arabs.
Muslims are humans like all of you. (If you still are.)
So, Black white, Muslim, Christian, Juif, poor, rich, blond, blind, paralyzed.. etc We’re all humans and we just need to love each other. Because we won’t survive if we lived separated.
Please remember that this is a personal blog, it’s not an online opened battlefield.
Also, remember I’m not attacking people, I’m attacking mentalities and the way of thinking.
Don’t forget my words are 99% to the governments and people that HAVE the power to change things without creating a mess.
THANK YOU. 🙂
