I shared this yesterday on Facebook , and today I am sharing it AGAIN here on my blog because our mainstream media are refusing to cover it. The Independent ran the story, as you can see. But what about TV news? Millions upon millions of Muslims RISKED THEIR LIVES to take part in this march, which is estimated to be the BIGGEST march to take place in the ENTIRE WORLD. They are marching AGAINST ISIS and in doing so they are sending a HUGE message to the West.
But the West doesn’t want to hear because it doesn’t fit into their narrative. We all need to think about the men, women and children who took part in this march. They have demonstrated great courage as they reach out to men, women and children around the world. They are telling us that they are a peaceful people who abhor terrorism. Muslims are just like you and me. All they want is to live their lives quietly and with dignity.
I wrote a post about Standing Rock a few days ago and how we, the people, have to be the media because the media refuse to do their jobs properly. Again, we have another example of the media failing not only Muslims, but the entire world. We will only achieve peace through communication. And if the media refuses to communicate what is happening in other parts of the world, they are blocking peace and inciting division, suspicion and fear.
Please share this widely. We are the media!
