Assalam alaikum & Peace to all
The world is a buzz with all that is going on in the middle east. I find it so sad and shameful that people just stand by and do nothing, well ok not everyone. Just looking a few images online is enough to make my stomach turn, and especially the pictures of wounded children. How can anyone look at them and turn a blind eye to it? I know that most people will say, 'yeah but that's over there...it doesn't affect us' Well you know what it does, directly or indirectly it does hurt us all in the end. I mean that child has a Mother who is crying her heart out, a Father who is wounded beyond physical wounds, has a Sister or Brother who is alone now. Muslims all around the world are crying out for justice and compassion especially from countries that have Muslim majorities. The world turns a blind eye, a cold heart and walks away with their heads down. I think its time to realize that it's not just 'over there' that war affects everyone, let us remember that we are all related....we are all HUMAN! We all have blood, bones, muscles and when one is hurt we are all hurt.
May God protect us and guide us and give peace to those who are suffering.
