A Message of the World’s Leaders to the People:
People of Paris are Innocent, but People of other Parts of the World Deserve to Die!
“Paris (CNN)On a night when thousands of Paris residents and tourists were reveling and fans were enjoying a soccer match between France and world champion Germany, horror struck in an unprecedented manner. Terrorists — some with AK-47s, some reportedly with bombs strapped to them attacked sites throughout the French capital and at the stadium where the soccer match was underway.”
Above statement scared millions, and triggered thousands to feel bad for humanity, cry, send their condemn statements, sympathy speeches, and take action against barbarian terrorist attack to France.
US president states stated on White House web “Once again we’ve seen an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians. This is an attack not just on Paris, it’s an attack not just on the people of France, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share.” He also spoke with French President Francois Hollande to offer condolences and assistance in the investigation.
Chinese President Xi Jinping also pledged to help France and other nations combat terrorism,
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his condolences on Twitter,
Justin Trudeau politician expressed his condolences
British David Cameron and most other presidents, leaders, politicians and ect did same thing as well. They all reacted and showed they care for the victims. In fact immediately French President Francois Hollande called on the United States and Russia to join a global coalition to destroy Islamic State and the very next day French started bombing ISIS bases in Syria.
Now, let’s change the statement and analyze the reactions. IF instead of Paris, the above CNN statement started withLebanon, and followed with:
Lebanon(CNN) On a night when thousands of Lebanon residents and tourists were enjoying life with families and visiting peaceful Roshe (ocean view in Beirut), horror struck in an unprecedented manner. Terrorists some with AK-47s, some reportedly with bombs strapped to them.
The whole world would be “well another minor attack that Middle Eastern are used to anyway”. In fact many would say “probably Lebanese did something wrong that they deserved it”. Some Wahabi scholars would say “ it was their destiny, no one can fight God’s will” as they did say after Mina stampede in Saudi Arabi 2015 Hajj season that between two to five thousands died.
How is it that when it comes to the people of France or Americans after 9/11 life has value, existence matters, right to life has meaning and the WHOLE world is willing and eager to take part to fight terrorists and terrorism?
When it comes to the life of Lebanese that were killed in the same manner, bombings, by the very same group, ISIS, NO one cares to even cover their story?
Why the life of people in West is more valuable than life of the human beings in Middle East?
Unfortunately killing, bombing, violation, rape, arrest and ect is so common in the Middle East that not only politician but even family members of the victims think it is Ok to be discriminated against. It has become so normal to the people of that part of the world that they think what they are going through is the only way of life. They cannot imagine living in peace, talking about differences, and defending their rights. And even more heart broking part is that their governments cannot care less for their own people. In fact in all countries of the Middle East, such as Bahrain, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and ect it is THE government that founds bombings, arrests and violates citizen’s rights.
When people cannot count on their own governments, it is clear that they do not expect much from the international committees. Therefore UN and other NGOs are useless in solving the world’s problems.
It does not matter how many of the world’s biggest leaders get together and create coalitions to fight ISIS and other terrorists, as long as we chose who’s life matters and who deserves to die in hunger, by gun or due to earthquake, we cannot help humanity.
