You may not believe there’s a war. Then again, it’s hard to overlook.
It’s in the antagonistic attitude the U.S. has against Muslim countries.
It’s in the words spoken by our president dearest. It’s in the makeup of a certain ban he put into place.
It’s in the tweets of solidarity when a Muslim girl is assaulted to death with a bat during the month of Ramadan.
It’s in the news when another mosque is blown up.
You get the point; there’s a war being waged.
And I figure it’s time the victims of this unjust war stand up and fight back, and the way to do that is with truth. As a verse in the Holy Qur’an says, “We hurl the Truth against falsehood, so it knocks out its brains.”
The brains of falsehood: media propaganda against Islam, President Trump, his followers, ignorant people that associate the word “Muslim” with the word “terrorist”.
But when Muslim women get their hijabs snatched off, who’s the terrorist in that situation?
When a man tries to ram a car into a crowd of Muslims, who’s the terrorist in that situation?
So here’s some truth: Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. It is a religion of peace. Muslims are taught to “be not the aggressors.” Muslims are a diverse group of people that have a presence in Africa, Asia, South America and even Europe and North America. Islam is a way of life that millions of people have fallen in love with.
And maybe that truth isn’t enough.
Maybe I need to spout some facts about how there are and has been terrorist groups associated with Christianity, yet the whole religion isn’t blamed; isn’t outcasted; isn’t despised.
Maybe I should even spout some facts about the acts of terrorism committed by the U.S. government.
But the truths are up to you to accept.
So, which side are you on in this war?
