Small power

I don’t usually post an aphorism in relation to worldly events. Today I am.

We are currently being manipulated by a minority of Haters to hate and fear. Fear begets prejudice and prejudice begets fear; what a cycle.

From what I understand, which is little, ISIS are attempting to isolate Muslims within their communities across the world by trying to represent them – to see them blamed and mistrusted, by manipulating us to fear. For hating on the innocent will invariably isolate them – what then? Make their/our children ripe for recruiting? Let’s be smart about this and not influenced by small power. We need to respond by embracing all within our community and not be manipulated to fear and hate.

Love, support and inclusion for all people within our own community is the only way to build Strength.
