FROM DANEMARK TO THE US
CONDEMNATION AND REFLECTION

Again. The unacceptable killing of innocent people. Again. An absolute condemnation. Again. This young Danish Muslim was misled and wrong and he betrayed our Islamic principles. Again.

Now let me be clear as well. The deafening silence of the international community, the biggest worldwide media and the Governments (US, European as well as in Muslim majority countries by the way) when Yusor Abu-Salha, Razan Abu-Salha, and Deah Barakat were killed in North Carolina is simply outrageous. The life of some people has more value than the life of others : it is not an impression, it is a fact confirmed by the international media coverage and the political reactions (or lack of reaction). A shame. Again and again.

When innocent Arabs, Africans, Asians and Muslims (Westerners or not) are killed, the murderer is mad; when the killer is a Muslim, he is a Muslim terrorist and all the Muslims must apologise. Israel set the scene a long time ago : Israeli terrorists are always "crazy individuals" while Palestinians are representing all the Arabs, the Muslims… they are neither crazy nor resistants, they are clearly "Muslim terrorists". This narrative has become a worldwide normalised frame.

Let me add one last thing. Please listen to both the speeches of Farris, Deah's brother, and those of Yusor and Razan's fathers (and sister). Please listen. Again and again. You might learn a great deal about the meaning of dignity, love and peace. A universal message of nobleness, humanism and profound spirituality. A great and unexpected lesson of life you will get from these families. They are your fellow human beings and citizens, they are Muslims, Arabs… and Palestinians.

Unexpected lessons indeed coming from Muslims and moreover Palestinians, isn't it? Again, listen, they shall help you to get a conscientious heart…
