Can only Muslims be terrorists?

When a Muslim conducts a terrorist act that is proof all Muslims are basically terrorists! Right? No. Wrong. Very wrong. When a man killed five people at an Orlando airport a lot of people simply assumed it was a Muslim terrorist attack. When it became clear the killer was not a Muslim he suddenly turned into 'a troubled young man'. Same thing in Melbourne when a man drove his car deliberately into a crowd, killing five people including a baby, a lot of people simply assumed it was a Muslim terrorist attack. When it became clear the killer was not a Muslim he suddenly turned into 'a troubled young man'.

Why is that? Did someone state that only Muslims can be terrorists? Was every Irish person a terrorist in the years the Irish Republican Army (IRA) was very active in killing people with guns and explosions? Was every Christian a terrorist when the Crusaders set out to kill everyone who refused to be converted to Christianity?

When there was a muslim terrorist attack that killed over 30 people, why did no one ad the colours of that country to their Facebook profile picture out of sympathy with the victims? Is it simply because the victims had a dark skincolour because the attack happened in Somalia? If you do want to show your support with those poor people: this is what the flag of Somalia looks like:

When the 45th president of the United States of America stated there was a terrorist attack in Sweden, the night before he held his first rally for the elections of 2020, the Swedes were surprised (click). Yes, there had been an awful attack. But months earlier. And it was a bunch of white supremacists that cowardly attacked asylum seekers.  The terrorists were not Muslim refugees but 'decent white local Christians'. Yes, we have a president who clearly lies for no other reason than to make sure Muslims are hated. And he's not being impeached.

If God exists, I'm sure he would punish Trump for pretending to be a Christian. But alas:


You could read my words (and I do have more. Believe me) but perhaps it's easier if I just showed you a picture and a quote from a little girl who got killed because 'the land of the free' turned down her visa application: Anne Frank

Now, replace the word 'Jew' with 'Muslim' and try not to feel embarrased.
Good luck!

Why do we kill people?

Rules should apply to everyone and always! Yes? Apparently not. Most people can't get away with stealing 100 dollars. Yet others easily get away with stealing millions. It's illegal to kill an other person. Let alone if that person is unarmed and severely wounded. Unless the one pulling the trigger is an Israeli soldier (click) and the victim is a Palestinian who minutes before stabbed an Israeli soldier. Right?

But if we kill other people to show other people that killing people is wrong, what values are we defending?

It clearly was not a case of self defense. The shooter consciously took the decision to aim and fire, planting a bullet in the head of an already taken down enemy. Most judges would judge that to be cold blooded murder. Here's a link to the filmed incident (please do not watch if you can't stand people getting killed):

Amazing news

With all the negativity going around it's sometimes hard to see there's a lot of great people out there, doing their utmost to make other people's lives less hard. The invention of Loopwheels is just one example but for those who are willing to see it there's a lot more good news out there.



Do you know of something worth the mention? Let me know in the comments section!

What's you definition of freedom?

It's hard to make people understand what I mean by 'Is it okay to take away freedom in order to preserve freedom?' and 'If we're serious about having freedom, why do we take it for granted our freedom is being taken away from us and we applaud the people who do that?'

So I've come up with these (click to enlarge) so called 'Lolcats':







So what do you think? Are you truly free? Should we take other people's freedom so we can have it? What's you definition of 'freedom'?

And what's the difference between being free and only believing you are free?
