If anyone tries to tell you that Muslims are all out to get us, that they never speak out against terrorism or suffer because of terrorism, tell them about Peshawar.
Tell them how 140+ people were slaughtered, mostly children, by the Taliban. Make them see the human cost that terrorism has on the Muslim community. Because as awful as Sydney was, and as terrible as the Canadian parliament attack was, and as horrific as the Boston Marathon bombings were, and as much as 9/11 hurts to this day, the slaughtering of school children in Pakistan happened too. Its just one more attack on Muslims in the name of extremist indoctrination disguised as religion. One little girl survived by laying among dead bodies and trying not to scream. Instructors tried to barricade classrooms as terrorists roamed the halls with guns and suicide vests. A teacher was doused in gasoline and set on fire in front of students. Children ran for their lives and were shot dead as they tried to escape.
All terrorism hurts but don’t for one second let anyone forget Peshawar. Don’t let anyone get away with a discussion about the victims of terrorism that doesn’t include the Muslim community.
