Stop It


Just stop it! Stop the terrorism, yes – there’s no need for it.

But also stop the constant barrage of news about it – you are doing more harm than good.

Don’t you realise that these news report inspire a certain group of people in this country to act out hate crimes against those who are probably nothing to do with the attacks?

But what happens is that their children grow up hating, they hate what’s happened to their families and they hate the fact that people avoid them and treat them all as terrorists; this fans the flames of hatred which turns them towards those extremists who treat them as cannon fodder.

This is what ISIS and their ilk want – you have played right into their hands – don’t you see that?

These youngsters who have been taking their aggression out on violent video games now find the extremist sites on the net and are encouraged either to go and join them in the middle east or to be “martyrs” here.

Each time there is an attack, the news comes to a standstill and all cameras turn to the latest attack, then they are told “Look how famous you are, look how you are serving the cause”

For those who have been marginalised by those who hate all foreigners and the distrust engendered by the news reports, this is their chance to strike back and so it continues.

Incidentally, for those who want to blame all Muslims – don’t, it’s Ramadan and this forbids fighting – so these people aren’t even true Muslims any more than those causing the hate crimes are true Christians.

So, stop sensationalising these acts, treat them as you used to treat the IRA attacks – my local IRA attack in Maidstone didn’t merit more than 30 seconds on the news!

  1. Common sense personified as always, Pat. I wish people would get through their skulls that it’s about thought processes not labels – they’re all the same under the skin. And that there is no amount of accommodation we can make that will change their minds. They despise our history, culture, values etc., etc., & their minds seem to be sealed. Love, Jen xxx
