“The Local France” which covers French news in English today covers the ‘story’ of a muslim woman who lost her unborn child due to a violent extremist attack which took place on June 13, 2013. The sister was attacked by two men in the Paris suburb of Argenteuil. She was four months pregnant and suffered a miscarriage. Which was announced by her lawyer as well as confirmed to AFP by the police investigators involved.
She was not the first woman to be attacked in the suburb of Argenteuil. Three weeks before another woman became victim of a similar attack.
“protect the rights of the victim..”
The statement of the CCIF also called on the government:
“The wave of attacks and Islamophobic incidents require a strong and uncompromising response from the government, which must express its solidarity with all victims, not just those which the interior minister deems worthy to receive.”
The Local covering the story of the assault on a religious woman, politicizes the piece by starting a exhausting narration of the political and legal context of the niqab. Niqab, or in English the “face veil” was banned by law in France since 2010)
In stead of condemning the crime – the murder – of an unborn child by violent extremists the article directly relates to further Islamophobic related issues and even by reiterating calls for restraint of the Muslim community some kind of inciting in essence itself for it even dares to draw the consistency of the statement of the woman in doubt quoting the daily “Le Parisien”.
Journalists should start to realize their responsibility channeling incitement leads to more incitement. Garbage articles which pass by the trauma, the very occasion of death (!) and continue to justify politicizing content by “we heard say” and was “written by” is merely a show off of lack of empathy and a shame to the profession of journalism itself.
Be ashamed. Yes. You should be ashamed MSM.
As knowledge of history seems to fall short on many nowadays, it was the very same incitement in the 1930′s which lead to the persecution of Jewish people by the Nazi’s. We all know what happened next. 6 Million Jewish people died due to direct and (!) indirect violence.
So maybe the gentlemen of the white chair journalistic tabloids would have been more satisfied if the woman, (disregarded of her religion) would have been left to bleed to death after this attack so they wouldn’t have to quote another newspaper to cast doubt on the circumstances of she lost the child due to the kick in her side or maybe, just maybe due to by violence induced trauma.
The point is this kind of media reportage totally misses the point of humanity and xenophobia to start with. I wonder, if the woman had been a French born woman, this newspaper and media would have used this story for nothing more than propaganda of almost pornographic extend leading to more hatred and violence while this media does and not seems to want to understand it’s complicity.
In the 1930′s the movie Jud Süss
was broadcasted to over 20 million people, just by dissemination and willful spreading of a movie campaign against Jewish people. All without the internet as we know this nowadays. It was intended, to vilify the Jewish people in advance, of literally everything which happened in HaShoah (the Holocaust).
After the war the civilians living near death camps like Warsaw Ghetto said:
“Wir haben es nicht gewußt” (We didn’t know)
But the issue is and stays: Facts are and stay: this was 1939 and even back than, media did know. Of course Hitler influenced or just eliminated voices of dissent with the process ofGleichschaltung
to synchronize the xenophobic opinions of the Nazi regime and everyone else who did not comply in this process was muted. Even literally.
‘Dear’ Media, you are doing exactly the same.
Comply to the xenophobic incitement, abusing the agenda of all those longing for worldly dominion, wealth and gain, who even do sleep less well at night and do not cancel a party if you become one day victim of such an attack. At your expense by the way. Even the party.
As political agendas rule this world not for your welfare nor for that of the woman who lost her baby. A tragedy. And every woman ever who suffered a miscarriage violent, or even non violent knows the kind of trauma I am speaking about.
What the hell goes on in the minds of the journalists sitting each and every day like it’s some obligatory annoying ‘duty’ to quote each other in the effort to dish you a story you will ‘buy’.
On humanitarian grounds, everyone with the ability to hand the keyboard or a pen should use this opportunity to defend the true essence of reporting: unveil truth. Unveil crimes. And not to justify political issues behind a woman’s veil to give the twist to the storyline which is most ‘effective’ to improve the sales and circulation of a newspaper.
What is going on in your minds! Come to your senses!
Silence, is complicity. In stead of exposing the horrific engines behind the hatred which drives people to hate-crimes you go politicize misery of human beings?
Or is it your own ignorance, or lacking knowledge or your own indoctrination which prevents you or has taken slowly your own humanity and skills to write a piece in neutrality in the effort – to maybe, maybe – create some understanding for women, wearing a religious dress or veil. or even a face veil.
The nowadays mainstream media who selfishly ‘go with the flow’ to not dissent and comply to political and populist tactics and refuse to dissent are smashing the nail in the coffin of journalism. How long do you actually think to be able to fool people around this way?
For the readers: Will you get empathy for this sister the moment in future you (which I hope not) have to experience a miscarriage or loss of a child yourself. But probably due to this kind reporting, and lack of condemnation and especially actions by governments and politicians you will have forgotten her by than.
Like the woman who was arrested first in France when the niqab ban was introduced. A french 32 year old mother who was the first to be jailed
for wearing a religious veil.
On July 31, 2011 this woman was walking peacefully to the station when a police car arrived and ‘busted’ her like she had offended some major crime and was deported in the police vehicle after being shackled. You can watch the assault in this video:
If after watching this video you consider this to be normal my sincere advice is you should check a psychiater.
But hence, below the article covering the story of the woman who lost her unborn child “The Local” even fails to censor racist comments, like this one:
Whether and how this event ‘stacks up’ in your mind. This is beyond recovery for no law justifies the murder of a child. Born or Unborn. There is no law nor moral value, nor no teaching – religious or not – which justifies the taking of a life. And to ‘Fasdunkle’ I want to say you do not only need a psychiater but a full ‘rehabilitation’ of your by media induced brainwash.
Unfortunately there are many Fasdunkles around. Which does not excuse no human being, of abstaining him or her to inform one self about the facts and the values. To which every living soul born instinctively is functioning: not driven by hatred but love, to reach out and long for justice for himself, and those with real morals, common sense and some values inherited by a decent upbringing, also for other’s peoples welfare.
Make yourself free of mass media incitement
Is this what you are planning as a legacy to your own children?
Remember, it is not only the woman with this veil who is attacked. In the past and even today, Jewish people, Christians are persecuted as well. Disabled and less fortunate. Outcasts as the first world likes to call everyone who is not complying with the worldy ‘perception’ of reality and alleged goals of success.
Maybe the grass is greener at your neighbours house but maybe your wife will be guided to Judaism or Islam or Christianity to, or have a little accident while skiing in the French hills and become disabled to be the next victims of similar racists who really do dare to attack physical inept people as well.
Escape to bigoted comments, reporting by tell-tale-who-he-she-said is not your Final Solution. The Final Solution is freeing yourself from this funneled up system of intolerance.
This will be your solution to a legacy for your own children. For a world in which all children will get a chance to be born, and live in a world without these kind of attacks. And it starts in your own head by freeing it from prejudices.
And whether they are about objections towards any religion: be a hero and take your coat. Go to a mosque. Go to a synagogue. Go to a church. God only guides people who he wants so you don’t have to be afraid to be funneled up “faith”. This is a choice.
The same choice you forget when you blindly follow mass media reports which solely incite, pollute your mind and create discomfort leading to intolerance.
Which block people’s mind like “Fasbunkle’s” one, who proclaims the ‘breaking of such and such law” and disable his common sense to condemn this humanitarian crime.
So let’s talk again about this ‘veil’
Any veil. For in case you missed it: religiously committed women of all monotheistic religions have this obligation for the teachings from the same God called Allaah SWT/G-d or just in english God have not been changed like men’s law.
Below a picture to illustrate the free expression of these teachings.
In case you did not notice. On the left you see Islamic women wearing a face-veil on the left (may come as a shocker to some of you!) Jewish women wearing a face-veil.
And for the Christians: It was written in 1 Corinthians 11 verse 6
6 For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off; but if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head.
Than, the Bible states in 1 Corinthians 11
13 Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14 Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, 15 but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering. 16 If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice—nor do the churches of God.
You want to be contentious about this? You want to be among those absuing a law over a religious cover as justification for another crime?
Normalization is exactly what is says. Your normalize more and more. Adapt yourself to behaviour and reactions which are not given in by nature, by no God and whether you believe in one or not at all, in the least by morals.
Suppression or Liberation?
As a niqab wearing sister myself I dare you to explore the meanings behind a veil
before judging one in the future.
As a sister of the sisters who got attacked we made this choice for ourselves. Not by force but own free will. To express our religious conviction and teachings and choose not to become the object of desire for non allowed persons but to be judged on our inner being.
For the same reasons, European courts were populated by professionals wearing black togas and wigs, to be seen as equal. And judged on content and intent.
When will you make the change and start judging people on their intents. And for sure you are no God’s and never will become one, nor do I. But I challenge you: building bridges is easier than destroying them.
Taking lives over hatred for a ‘veil’ is insanity. Lacking to condemn it too. Whether you are a reader or a publisher or just one who passes by. I call on anyone to bring forth tolerance and respect for customs, habits and expression of religious kind, and ask my brothers and sisters of all religions to pray for those who are not religious to be guided to common sense.
To my dear sister
You lost a child.
My words of solidarity and my pain will not be able to express my feelings nor soften your pain, but know it was related in the ahahdith:
Mu’aath Ibn Jabal narrated that the Prophet said:
“I swear by Allaah in Whose Hands my soul is, the miscarried child would pull his mother with his umbilical cord to Paradise if she sought Allaah’s Reward for it and was patient.“
[Ibn Maajah and Ahmad, and Al-Albaani classified it as Saheeh]
May Allaah SWT grant solace to you and your loved ones and increase your blessings for Dunya (this world) as well as for ‘Akheera (the HereAfter).
Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen.
