London Bridge Attack: Inhumane, Atrocious, and Non-Muslim  

“Humanity is but a single brotherhood, so make peace with your brethren.”  (The Quran 49:10)

Today, I woke up to news of more bloodshed, to a world who’d lost 7 of its innocent and unsuspecting civilians, I am truly and utterly disheartened by the news (as anyone in their right minds would be), but to say that I was surprised would be a lie and that scared me lots, the fact that terrorism is now becoming to feel like the new normal, the frequency of such horrific attacks has brought a new and disgusting sense of normality to the situation. But I refuse to function in fear, I refuse to accept such vileness, I refuse to lose my faith in mankind. As per usual, accounts of the assailants shouting ‘this is for Allah’ were shared, further tarnishing the global image of Islam. But that’s not the problem you see, in every good there is bad and in every bad there is good, Islam is a fairly good religion, one I’ve followed for all of my life, one I solemnly believe in and continue to practice until this day, the fact that some people have chosen to commit crimes in its name is utterly devastating and it’s also the biggest misrepresentation of all. I’d like to say that I know a lot but in all honesty, I know what the media broadcasts, that’s what I know, I watch the news and I read the newspaper, and only a few months ago have I begun to realize that the media is no dependable source, -I’ve lived this, it’s not just a baseless claim- (I grew up in Egypt for most of my childhood and just recently moved to the Emirates, back in Egypt, during the 25/1 revolts, international media outlets would share very violent depictions of the ongoing terror, but in all honesty, half of what was told was false, exaggerated, and unreal) what you see on TV isn’t reality it’s what they want you to see, and I’ve only recently come to that realization, speaking of, the media has chosen to blame muslims, specifically those who belong to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (Isis) the first question that comes to my mind at the mention of such brutal force is their source of income, of Isis is what the media claims it to be, then it is utterly beyond me that they can afford such heavy weaponry without receiving any external aid,how can they possibly escape America’s watchful eye? It just doesn’t add up, who’s to say that this isnt just another American Intelligence ploy? (Because Muslims have been subjected to the torturous tactics of this state, they’ve bombed mosques, killed children, violated women, all in the name of Islam. )We need to get real, we need to start focusing on what actually matters, The government is clearly after the wrong people, which makes it easier for one to commit crimes within said country. Instead of blaming Muslims, let us join forces to beat this, to eliminate terror and injustice, instead of blaming each other, lets spread love and kindness across the land, we are all human, we have to stand as a unified front, how are we to beat ISIS when we’ve failed to find peace amongst ourselves? Trump is trolling the Mayor of London, barely 12 hours after the incident, now tell me, how can you expect us to eliminate danger when we can’t unite to fight it?

  1. Yes of course America has been funding Al Qaeda for decades, they literally created Al Qaeda. You should realize America is a selfish state. No doubt they are against terrorism, ISIS and the likes BUT selfishly they still fund and provide ammunitions for the supposed terrorist group when they want them to fight their enemies for them just like they did in Libya and Syria. Obama admitted his worst mistake in power was the way he handled the Libya issue. Personally I don’t see an end to terrorism I’m just confused about the part Islam is playing in it.

    1. True, the three most influential things are money power and religion, and Isis militants need religion to lure the youths of today into fighting and terrorizing others, if you look into the personal history of almost all known Isis soldiers, they all have a history of drug dealing alcoholism and criminality, if Isis were to offer them a chance to repent their sins, they would undoubtedly take it. You’re right, but all it takes for evil to prevail is for the good to do nothing, the fact that terrorism is persistent doesn’t mean that we should just sit back and watch it take over, terrorism will forever be present amongst mankind

  2. This people perpetrating evils are obviously Muslims who probably have the wrong conviction of what Islam is all about and that to an extent has to deal with what they have been taught. So personally I think the general world Muslim community has a lot more work to do in combating this mess. The right teaching of what Islam is all about should be taught from the womb.

    1. i agree, but the thing is, I don’t believe in this whole ISIS thing, as I previously mentioned, it can be a ploy, me choosing to not believe in ISIS might seem foolish on my part, but really, where’d they get all the money? America, not too long ago, chose to fund the Taliban- a violent and extremist group- and many allegations were made regarding present ties between the CIA and Osama bin Laden, why can’t this be another stunt? because who on earth has it in them to kill people like that? who has it in them to bomb kids and kill mothers? I’m probably just being naive, but all this bloodshed and cruelty is more than my brain can comprehend.

      1. I get you. There is terrorism and I don’t wanna believe it’s a ploy. Lets look at it from this angle, from middle or high school there are bullies (I call them terrorist too) cos they bully some students to the point that some victims commit suicide. So yeah there are some people on earth who have it in them to kill people. ISIS, Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups do exist, they are people who are mislead, mistaught and shii. Terrorists have the money cos they have these cabals that support them financially. Terrorism is everywhere in the world, it’s just more pronounced in some countries. I was following this country in Africa, Nigeria, it’s crazy down there too. It’s not possible for government to successfully fight terrorism, I just pray that God intervenes. America to me is confusing, I don’t understand that nation. They have too much power
