A young Muslim teenager killed in the States. A Muslim killed in the U.K. and many have been seriously injured… So sad. Yet there are three main teachings we can draw out of these horrific events. First we are all equally exposed to violence and terrorist attacks and because we are all potential victims, we should avoid playing the victims one “civilisation” or religion against the other. Second, murderers are murderers before being Muslim, White, Black, Jew or Christian. We should avoid equating their acts with their origin, colour or religion. Third, we need to come together and be as brave as this iman who protected the murderer from hatred and delivered him to justice. This is where we need to stand together : while we hate terrorism we need to master our emotions and remain wise and true to our principles. We will prevail with our ethical stances not with arrogant power and blind retaliation.
