ISIS is to Islam as the KKK is to Christianity
(I don’t know who drew this but the copyright belongs to them and
I hope they don’t mind us using it.)
Australia is a land of fear at the moment.
Everyone seems to be scared at the increase in the terror threat level.
Muslims seem to be even more scared as they are becoming targets for the fear of the masses. A house near where I live was burned down this week because, as the local paper put it, “Muslims own it.” Old men and women are being insulted, spat upon and egged in the street because they “look Muslim.” Because, as we all know, everyone of Middle Eastern appearance MUST be a terrorist, (I assume that includes Jesus, although there are some who would claim he was.)
C’mon Australia – we are better than this!
We know that not all Muslims are terrorists just as we know that not all terrorists are Muslims. Our sign this week depicts what most people think of ISIS (Muslims included (do I really have to say that?? Don’t most of us realise it??)).
They are a bunch of very misguided fundamentalists that try and impose their twisted view of Islam on the world through violence and hate; if you don’t agree with them you are a heretic and should die. This is not how most Muslims think.
Just as the KKK are a bunch very misguided fundamentalists that try and impose their twisted view of Christianity on the world through violence and hate; if you don’t look like them then you are an inferior species and should die. This is not how most Christians think.
99% of people don’t agree with ISIS; 99% of Australian Muslims won’t agree with ISIS just as 99% of rational thinking Christians don’t agree with the KKK.
It’s that very small minority that give the whole a bad name – c’mon Australia; where is that famous spirit of mateship that pulls together in a crisis – our Muslim countrymen and women need our help not our hate, our friendship not our suspicion. They will try as hard as the rest of us to keep our country safe – did you know, for example, that most of the anti-terror police raids conducted last week were done so because of tip offs from the Muslim community.
Yes be alert; yes be wary but of terrorists not Muslims – THEY ARE NOT THE SAME THING!!!!
