Paris Attack Survivor’s Story Teaches A Powerful Lesson

17 November 2015

Before you blame ALL Muslims for the terrorist attack in Paris watch this incredible interview from a survivor of the attack. Cenk Uygur host of The Young Turks asks you not to give into temptation, stop and think about the Muslim victims before you lash out against the entire religion.

Translated from Omroep Brabant in the Netherlands today:

Minute of silence in Brabant mosques after bombings in Paris, ‘This is against our faith’

DEN BOSCH – Several mosques in Brabant before and during the Friday prayers will pay attention to the recent attacks in Paris and the terror in the world, according to a survey by Omroep Brabant. With a minute of silence before the Friday prayers, for example, the Turkish community in Den Bosch will express support for the victims in Paris. “We as Muslims are against this,” board member Cengiz Altin says on behalf of this community. “This does not belong to our faith.”

In the Friday prayers in the Orhan Gazi Mosque in Den Bosch, the imam will dwell on all terror in the world. “He will tell you that terror is not what our faith is all about. It’s terrible what’s happening in the world, “says president Ali Cikus.

“In this way we contribute to society as it should be,” Altin adds. …

“This is not acceptable”

There are ‘rotten apples’ according to Altin in every community. Also within the Turkish community. But within the majority there, according to him the feeling is that “this is not acceptable.” And this Friday they want to show that.

Also in the Süleymaniye Mosque in Tilburg people will reflect on the events. “But we at every Friday prayer silently commemoeate all innocent victims of terror. Not only in Paris there is terror, but it happens all over the world. We of course will dwell upon that”, says chairman Yavuz Yilmaz.

On the run from Isis: Jihadists ‘targeting Paris attacker Salah Abdeslam for chickening out of killings’. He said he regretted his part in the attacks, which had ‘gone too far’: here.
