people are crazy: n I refuse to associate my peaceful religion with monstrous individuals who use my religion. These murderous fanatics kill Muslims and non-Muslims indiscriminately. They hate all of us. To those asking how do us Muslims feel? We feel exactly the SAME way a non-Muslim would feel. Shocked, disgusted, frightened and scared that this happens in our world. But in addition, when these attacks occur; for us Muslims there is a separate dimension reserved. We become centre stage for blame, we have to provide answers, we are on the receiving end of Islamophobic abuse and it's assumed that these crazy culprits must represent our beliefs? NO! Just because they say they do it for "Allah" or "Islam" it does not mean they reflect us or the religion of over 1.6 BILLION Muslims on this planet. Why haven't we all blown ourselves up if the religion commands us to do so? BECAUSE ISLAM DOESN'T TEACH THAT. When a white supremacist kills innocent people, do they represent every white person? OF COURSE NOT. Crazy people are crazy. Please apply the same logic here. During these horrible attacks, there are Muslim doctors, nurses, police officers, charity workers, business owners and taxi drivers who help unconditionally. There is outrage and condemnation on social media and mainstream outlets from Muslim public figures, politicians, community leaders and your everyday normal Muslim neighbours, parents, workers, students and more. Please remember those Muslims next time you want to believe everyone is the same. My thoughts and prayers are with anyone that has been a victim of an inhumane crime. Let us not be divided or feel defeated by those who want us to be. May we stay safe and let the power of love and humanity prevail.

people are crazy: Because you need a cute Somali baby on your timeline, have a blessed day a @chaka ban Because when you tell a story you should tell the full story. There is suffering in Somalia right now, many people don't have access to food or water. We are trying to change that, we don't make a business out of helping the people, but we do it out of humanity. The same humanity I extend to all people suffering anywhere on this earth. Many people told me Somalia is too dangerous, the people are crazy, it wouldn't help to come here... Etc But I am no different to any of these people, so I won't hide behind my passport or the privileges, that I never asked for anyway. We need to treat all humans as equal, no matter where they are from or which belief system they follow. So many people think of Somali people and think of pirates. They don't speak of the colonisation by the British, the Italians and the French, the massacres that the Ethiopians lead against the Somali people, or how the Russians and the Cubans & Ethiopians went to war with the Somalia people in 1964. They never speak about North Americas involvement in keeping Somalia at war. They don't speak of the pipeline that Kenya and Ethiopia want to run through Somalia. Or how Libya and Yemen fought against the Somali people. Or how nuclear waste was dumped off the coast of Somalia by the Mafia, poisoning Somali children and fish. Or how many of the Gulf states are complicit in arming & funding the terrorists in Somalia. Then there was conflict and civil war... Or how the casualties of all of this are little babies like this one. They rarely speak of the beauty of the people, how hospitable they are, how friendly and welcoming they are. I got so many hugs and smiles. I didn't meet one person who was scary or aggressive. Not saying they don't exist, but please, tell the full story. The πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡΄ people deserve to be properly represented, they are so beautiful and need you to see them as humans, just like you see me... chakabars
