A Can Of Nerves.

IMG_5420

During the summer while we were on the bus in London, a passenger got quite angry with the bus driver because he was carrying a rather large can of paint and the bus driver was trying to inform him, he wasn’t allowed to bring the container onto the bus.

The passenger also mentioned in his response that he’d never been told before he couldn’t carry paint onto public transport.

To everyone else, it was a bit weird at the time but today’s terrorist attack in Parson’s Green proves the bus driver’s point….

I think Transport For London staff are on guard but the public don’t know enough, to help them and the police keep watch.

Seriously, God help those that tries to hurt my angels and their friends whilst we are travelling to and from school via the public transport system during rush hours.

Terrorists, please – piss off. You will never prevail.

My thoughts and nerves are with those affected by today’s turn of events at Parson’s Green.

A (Relay) Translation.

A brief (relay) translation of the Arabic in this video which featured a man who happens to be deaf, from last night’s terror attack in Finsbury Park.

The man reporting to the arabic tv station, introduced thé man as being deaf and was involved in the incident but escaped harm. Second man said possibly 3 dead. 3 rd man said he is not happy that it was reported as an attack rather than a terrorist attack, he added by saying we only have God to protect us.

The deaf man does however say there is one dead, for sure. He describes how the van only brushed his leg and escaped more harm which was intended.

Enough Is Enough.

It does not help when you get idiots like Piers Morgan saying on TV that the Muslim community does not do enough.

Not only that but when the news lie, this video proves that the police were not on the scene within one minute as our Prime Minister is trying to make us believe.

This is a harrowing recording of the aftermath by my friend who was there at Finsbury Park Mosque, the van had just nudged his shoulder but injured his friend as well as deliberately mowing down others in his path.

A criminal act is a criminal act. The background of the individual is irrelevant but when someone happens to be of a faith, it’s focused so much more on their faith. On another post a friend said this was a terror attack. Someone else tried to say that it is just a white man. No, it’s a terror attack, a terrorist can be anyone regardless of background.

A quote from an interview on BBC news “He is effectively working for ISIS because that’s what they want.” (Division)

Who says we are against each other? ☺️ It’s only those who allow themselves to feel the division and be divided through evil that feel as if they are. If they had an ounce of wisdom, they’d see past their biased anger and not permit it to dictate them or their actions. Easier said than done perhaps, for some. This is why some managed to stay calm and collected last night in the assailant’s face. Admirable really.

It is one event after another these days and it is draining on us all, we all need some peace.

Enough is enough.

I Wish The World…

iwish

I am trying so hard not to be angry with the world.

I have to remember it is not their fault since they were not informed by the media‘s lack of coverage, of any of the bombings that happen almost daily in Palestine… Or the bombings in Turkey… Likewise in Iraq and Syria, etc. They were/are innocent people too and just as important.

If only they got their silent moment of remembrances too, by way of a cartoon, a flag over a photo, etc.

I wish the world would not appear so one sided.

Mainstream media is @*#¥ at covering news equally / independently. Much of their content is being controlled, omitted or manipulated if anything.

We know because of our family connections here at there so we are aware of the differences in all of the media we access. Those otherwise, aren’t made aware unless they seek that knowledge, the truth for themselves.

Except, some people, who do come across the information, will choose ignorance instead which can be bliss – for them. And it is their behaviour which dictates who stays in their lives.

Sad but oh so very true.

Patience is a virtue….

With Age Comes Wisdom

Peace

Reflecting upon last Friday’s massacre in Paris and seeing how the whole world has taken notice and shown their support, it will inevitably frustrate those who have lost loved ones in Palestine, those who were banned from going to mosques, and so on. They are innocent people too, are they not? Where is their voice, their support?

The reason why such a despicable attack was carried out is because these men were (mentally) young, impressionable and frustrated at the French (and the western world) for their hypocrisy and responibilties in taking innocent lives – elsewhere.

If only they had not been so frustrated or impatient, in time they would have realised it is wrong to take innocent lives, especially that of women and children. They clearly misunderstood the true meaning of Islam and what it stands for which is peace, patience, humility and tolerance but understood what they were learnt, on their own terms. Distorted and fuelled by their anger at the hypocrisy of the western world.

I have seen boisterous young men do whatever they want because their mind has been set to it whereas I have seen other aggressive young men become wise with knowledge and patience.

To retaliate with violence (especially where a war in any sense ensues) is so not the answer.

With respect comes peace… With age comes wisdom.

The Media’s Influence

themedia

Are established media outlets to blame for the ever-increasing exposure of radicalisation and extremism, by falling victim to playing a part in adding to the propaganda? Of which is misrepresenting Islam and its peaceful followers, the Muslims.

For those who may not know, extremism is not permitted, in Islam.

I say yes to my earlier question (as above) because the exposure adds to the rising levels of “Islamophobia” except I would like to go on to say that social media is also being used as a tool by today’s society.

There is an online world being formed, which makes people feel able to take things into their own hands, making comments, posting YouTube videos or articles that spread like wildfire within seconds of it being publicized.

It is all potentially dangerous because each one of us will interpret the context based on our personal knowledge, understanding and experiences. Not everyone will seek the truth or a deeper knowledge in order to be better informed about what we are being told or given to read, by or via the media.

Here are some excerpts from several of my past articles relating to and/or responding to any extremism in the media:

My Waging a dirty war” article will help to explain one of the real reasons why the media of the West, is somewhat biased.

It is not a laughing matter. –

“I condemn all acts of terrorism especially where innocent people have to die.

Muslims seem to lose either way. They are constantly asked to apologise for crimes they did not commit nor supported. They are stuck between the extremists and fanatics on either sides. Most Muslims want to work providing for their family and get on with life in harmony.”…

…”My point being, freedom of speech is important but we need to hold back at our own discretion if we feel what we might say or do is hurtful towards others. There will always be people who want to push the boundaries and there is nothing wrong with that but freedom of speech cannot be used as an excuse to hide behind from when their actions has consequences and they should expect the same level of freedom of speech back especially when in a democratic state.

My main worry at this point in time is how society is reacting based on what the media wants us to see and believe”…

…”Any perceived anti-Semitism would be handled straightaway and the offenders promptly dealt with. Yet for any other religions, any anti views are sadly casually tolerated which I find very unfair because the same law should apply to all religions. By being respectful and mindful of others at all times would nip any anti views in the bud and would avoid that cataclysmic chain reaction of events spiralling out of anyone’s control. As for censorship? Do not even try to hide behind that excuse because no one ever sees what actually happens to the people of Palestine and other war-torn countries: Waging a dirty war.

Is the Ku Klux Klan a representative of Christians? So why do many think Terrorists are representative of Muslims? Fanatics or extremists does not define their religion come what may except distorts the truth behind it – all religions which asks for submission to the one and only same god is about peace and humanity. A true believer would not stoop so low to harm another because their religion (should) forbids it. Unfortunately people not in the know or are well-informed regarding a particular religion will accept that distortion all too readily. It is those who are the most sincere in their hearts that suffer the most from all this due to fanatics and others attributing excuses.

Thank you for allowing me to practise free speech – with respect comes peace.”

The ISIS video.: –

“The last straw for me came when I saw articles written by those who are not experienced or knowledgeable in either, the history of the Middle East, the language and the religion – the latter; ISIS has nothing to do with, at all.

Why are people listening to, consulting with or publishing someone”… “….who are not qualified on any aspect of the subject matter?

Not everything published online be it YouTube, Facebook or even established news outlets is correct and should always be looked at with a critical eye. Politicians who have an agenda in mind would highlight a particular issue and blow it out of proportion, then feed the public in order to gain votes. In some cases, deflecting attention from their shortcomings.”

Established media outlets should be responsible for what they broadcast and permit for they do not realise, the vast influence their content patently has on today’s society.
