the Attacks against two mosques in New Zealand has shaken us all.
- But what is the reason that people choose to perform such evil?
- And why we have so many citizens in Denmark, who is morally obtuse and show support for these events?
so begins Mursal a letter to the nation! on racism, xenophobia and right-wing extremism and the absurd inflated, exaggerated and dæmoniserende rhetoric, she hears and sees on the net. Mursal believe, namely, that the evil debate, whip up an unnecessary polarisation up and she fears that it ends like in the Middle east, if we do not learn to talk together in a different way. Her letter continues thus:
- We see a lot of comments on Facebook as 'Sin they have not got the ram on some more', 'What about the 9.11. Remember. So should we just shut up or what?' and 'It is the muslims' goal to kill the believers. Now is there any, there has come to them in vancouver. I hold with those who defended themselves'.
- We saw the same reactions with Breivik. And we see it in Denmark, when extremists like Rasmus Paludan, Pernille Vermund and co. promotes and stands at the head of a strong ideology that is rooted in division and hatred.
- We must as a society and a world community wake up and recognize that the rise of right-wing extremism is a real fundamental threat to our democracy and society.
- We need to do away with the divisions in our society, if we are to avoid a situation in which terror become everyday life in the West - just as it has been in many places in the Middle east.
- the Terrorist attack in New Zealand comes not as a spontaneous attack.
- the Perpetrators are not only about to have innocent lives on his conscience.
- We are all complicit when we turn a blind eye to racism, xenophobia and right-wing extremism and not actively trying to fight it.
" that is Why we as a society need to find a new way to talk, discuss and disagree with each other.
- The absurd inflated, exaggerated and dæmoniserende rhetoric creates false perceptions in the population and whip up an unnecessary polarisation up in society.
- And it may well be that populist politicians in the short term can win power with the strategy, but in the put term they lose our community on the floor.
- Attacks like what we saw in New Zealand, is an attack on all of us. It is time that we learn and say no to extremism, writes Mursal, but what are you thinking?
