I'm not a violent person, but every post I see about how all Muslims are bad, how these people should be locked up, how we need to bomb the middle east, etc., makes me want to shake the living shit out of that person.
It's YOUR hatred, your spread of an evil emotion, that BREEDS terrorists.
This bombing has killed 3 people.
Columbine shootings were done by 2 American boys. It killed more people than this bombing.
Sandy Hook shootings were done by an American man. It killed more people than this bombing.
And the OKC bombing, done by Timothy McVeigh...the second worst attack on American soil, only outnumbered in magnitude by 9/11, was done by a white, non-muslim, AMERICAN man.
That is only 3 attacks. There is an entire list of them.
There is probably one white 100% American family in your community that is Muslim. Your child probably knows at least one 100% white Muslim child in his or her school.
Terrorists are not "bred" by a country, by a religion, by a race. Not all middle eastern people are evil. Not all Muslim people are evil.
HATRED is what breeds evil. And HATRED is found ALL OVER THE WORLD.
In fact, those of you demanding the death of innocent people to pay for something an evil terrorist had done, YOU are showing that hatred. And your hatred is part of the reason WE STILL HAVE TERRORISM.
World peace will likely never happen. But all this added hatred is only making it worse. It's only causing the deaths of innocent people. And what do you gain from it?
You've just left another child parentless. Or another parent childless. You took a sibling, a mother, a father, a son, a daughter. You took away a doctor, a lawyer, a person who could have stood on the front lines against the fight of terrorism.
But because you willingly chose to spread your hatred and take the lives of innocents to make up for the lives of innocent people that have already been taken, you took that away. You prevented great things from happening through your hatred. Your hatred has bred the kind of terrorism that you're opposed too.
But to you it's fair. How does that make sense? An eye for an eye doesn't mean kill and innocent for an innocent. It means punish the guilty. How does becoming a terrorist yourself, or breeding terrorism through your own hate, make the world a better place?
STOP being so damn hateful.
Hold the hand of your Muslim brother or sister. Comfort your middle eastern neighbor. These people, they aren't cheering these terrorists on. Not only are they watching in horror as this is happening, they get to go through the horrors of hatred from racist and prejudice people following. They have to walk around in fear, not knowing if someone full of hate will attack them for their race or their religion.
Do you kill a bunch of white American men in response to what Timothy McVeigh did? Or a bunch of white American teenagers in response to the school shootings? Do you kill a bunch of Asian men in response to the Virginia Tech shootings?
Then why is it okay to you to kill a bunch of Muslims for something a few radical extremists have done? You won't kill your own people for your own radical extremists. So where in your mind does it make sense.
I'm so disappointed in our society today. And honestly, all of this hatred makes me disappointed to be an American. Because all this hatred shows that our own people are no better than these other extremists.
