When someone told me Muslims would be the new Jewish, I just found that this was really exaggerated and drama drama. But yesterday, my brother told me a story, which made me really sad, angry and also thoughtful:
So, as he went down the street (somewhere in Vienna), he noticed that the police had blocked the streets because an ominous backpack was standing alone in a corner. Some meters away there was a Muslim (also Muslim-looking) man with a beard who was getting himself a döner for Iftar, he had left the backpack because he couldn’t carry it with him anymore. So when the special forces arrived, they aggressively put him down to the ground and examined his backpack. The man was humiliated in the worst possible way. As they couldn’t find anything suspicious in his back-pack, they retired without even saying sorry or at least trying to help the man up again.
Worse than than that some jewish people (FYI: in Vienna there are a lot of Jewish in certain areas) were taking pictures of this already humiliated man, who BY THE WAY, was proved to be innocent in every way. Out of embarrassment and humiliation the man could only look to the ground. So, when my brother tried to help him up – being the only one out of a lot people standing around who would help him, he just said, in a friendly way: „It is okay, really. Let Allah deal with them.“
First of all, I am asking myself, why the Jewish people here where this disrespectful as in 1. Calling the police just because someone with a beard could be a terrorist 2. Taking pictures of someone who is innocent, yet humiliated. Don’t they remember what happened some time ago to them because of religious hate? How can they be this heartless when It comes to others?
Secondly, I am thinking: what has happened to our beautiful religion? Why is everyone with a beard, a hijab or a Muslim name immediately suspected to be a terrorist?
THANK you ISIS for creating this image of this man and make him go through such a situation in Ramadan and just one day before Bayram.
Also, THANK you USA, Europe etc. for never learning of your history and mistakes.
May God bless the poor man, who had to go through this horrible experience for only being a religious Muslim, having a beard. May he punish the ones who do people wrong. AMIN.
