    What the f... I never said that. I'm saying your being a horrible racist.
    But you're not adding anything to to the topic of conversation. I'm just stating some facts of France's Muslims.

    Why the **** should I give compassion where I never received it? Where I was left alone to rot?
    Maybe you shouldn't. The West is in mourning because the West was attacked.

    Do you call others hypocrites when they mourn their friends deaths more than a strangers?

    I am ashamed to admit that I am jealous.

    Jealous of the 13 year old Parisian boy getting so much love from the world.

    Jealous that the people of Paris are receiving so much compassion.

    Yet, when I was in Karachi, and when I was 13; when my friends were blown into tiny little pieces by terrorists...when my family members were gunned down by extremists. Or when 5 year old girls were ripped apart by shrapnel while their mothers watched...

    I didn't see all the artists I follow send their prayers & thoughts.

    I didn't see the Video game fan pages say that the gaming community was behind me, like they did for Paris.

    Even some news channels didn't cover my tragedies.

    I had not one of my international friends message me asking me whether I was OK.

    I was ****ing 13.

    And no one asked me if I was OK. No one prayed for the dead in Karachi. And no one changed their profile pictures for me, for my dead family and for my dead friends.

    So why the **** should I for Paris?

    Why the **** should I give compassion where I never received it? Where I was left alone to rot? Where the same DAY that a bomb would blow up, people would blame the victims themselves?

    I guess it's because I am not full of hypocrisy like you. Because I know what it's like. Because your pain is shared. Because you select who is important based on their race & background. You are desensitised to the plight of people that are poor.

    So I will still care. I will send my love. I will say that I am Paris & I will change my profile picture. And I will send my endless love & compassion.

    But remember.

    That when the eardrums of my six year old cousin were ripped to shreds by the same evil people that attacked Paris, you showed her no compassion.

    That when I spent four hours looking for the severed fingers of a 5 year old boy because he begged me to find them...

    You were silent.

    You never said that you were her or him. You never shared a status, or asked how you could help. You left the 13 year old boy alone.

    Hence, I am jealous, and I am sorry that I am. I am so, so, utterly jealous.

    Stay strong, Paris.
    You're ignoring that most people didn't have coverage of this.

    Don't you ****ing dare say "Why the **** should I (pray) for Paris" and "Stay strong, Paris".

    Notice how no-one's still given you any reps...

    I don't want to derail this thread about whether Pakistanis might do something similar in the UK so I'll apologise and move on.

    France has the largest Muslim population in Western Europe so it's expected that they share the biggest burden. Also:
    (Original post by yulebook)
    France's Muslims mainly come from Africa and they are to them what Pakistanis are in the UK. They are stereotyped as lower class and most Parisians look down on them.
    Which makes it more likely that Paris will face something like this more often.

    I'm not denying the sheer tragedy of the events which took place in Paris.

    But the West and Westerners have a tendency to keep falling into the same trap of having a brutal, inhumane foreign policy which makes these attacks more likely

    No one is asking anything from you. You may or may not feel sorry for them.
    It is very normal that people react differently to events that happen close to them and to people they know or with who they share many things in common.

    Why are you angry? Because you did not get similar compassion from people in Pakistan - the place where it should have come from in the first place?

    Bear in mind 9/11, 7/7 and ISIS was caused by a small proportion of Muslims. There's billions of Muslims out there and ISIS barely covers 5% of them.

    It couldn't possibly be a Muslim because Islam is the religion of peace.
    Of course you know people like to hold labels against themselves because of the massive cowards they are to just admit religion isn't teaching them to be terrorists and kill people

    I bet you're living a priviledged life in the West. The irony.
    the irony is that we're cool with our government annihilating other countries / regions for our benefit but when the victims of these actions want to escape their war-torn homes in order to live a better life here we want none of it.

    the longer we continue to blame muslims instead of being outraged at our foreign policy's the more these kind of attacks will happen and more immigrants will want to flood our country. we all saw something like this coming

    just a little translation to get the flavour of this rubbish:

    "the bataclan ( venue ) where hundreds of idolaters were gathered in a feast of perversity..."

    otherwise known as a pop concert.
    Clearly what we need to do is to stop antagonising them by having pop concerts.

    It;s a link to a kind of Christianity many westerners in Europe adopt. We don't go on witch hunts for Cultural Christians when a terrorist who subscribes great importance to culture Christianity goes on a killing spree. Beverik was essentially moderate in his Christianity then? Christians can't even use the 'he was an extremist outlier' line in that case.

    I'm not trying to hide the fact Beverik was not an extreme dogmatic religious person like an ISIS terrorist will be. If I was I would have not included that part when I quoted him.

    Beveriks interest in Christianity is the same as a lot of Europeans, yet we do not and should not hold them all responsible or complicit when he killed 77 people. But a lot of us do just that when it is a Muslim Terrorist. That is what I am saying.
    You are equating one isolated loon who represents nobody but himself with a whole Caliphate that is allied to sister organisations everywhere from Indonesia to Nigeria, and which your fellow British citizens are leaving this country to join, if they aren't plotting to machine gun you on the streets of your home town.

    One is motivated by a religious ideology, the other is purely reactive. If it wasn't for Muslmin terrorism insane misfits like Breivik would be playing computer games and howling at the moon...

    Exactly.

    My country is ducked up by imperialism and is properly the largest hotspot for terrorism yet nobody could give a **** all about these circumstances .

    And I'm not crying about it.

    What happened in France is horrifying in a moral aspect but in reality, it is the future of the world and not just Europe.
    This idea that the west will continue in prosperity is idealistic as there are growing tensions between extremist groups in France running for election and even Isis. Extremism is growing in our parliament not just religiously.

    To sum up, there really isn't no going back. Everyone has called their shots.
    World war 3 will commence.

    It probably will become really common in Europe, sort of like how Lebanon changed. **** happens and you keep moving.
