My personal background about how I end up breaking my silence

Since I was a school kid, I felt sadness for social and political issues and problems in the society and hoped there might be a way to solve them.

While like every other school kid I were directly and subtly told that religion and politics are the granted means to solve large-scale socio-political issues, the reality of the world in which I lived didn’t much confirm such common sense wisdom. With all the policies and religious preachers, how can’t you expect one to lie, when otherwise, he or she won’t be able to get by in life … So, a while, there was the conclusion that it is neither religion nor the politics that causes such problems but the issue of economy and that if men could have what they deserved in life, they would be that much dishonesty and betrayal and …

Nowadays I see religion, politics, and economy far different than how they are presented in public media or as well in well known academic circles, and by that I don’t only mean this country or that country, I would rather say, the whole Middle East, Europe, North America and Australia … and perhaps the remaining parts of the world won’t be much different …

All over my lifetime I’ve been warned by nearly everyone who knows me, not to talk about politics or religion[1] and since on the few occasions that I tried to share my opinions it resulted in being misunderstood about my intentions and my behavior being extremely wrongly interpreted by those people whom I care about and I wished to contribute to their well-being [being it spiritually or monetary], I decided neither talk regarding such matters publicly nor privately, save someone is so important to me that I wish to gift him or her [part of] my heart …

But the rise of ISIS, the reaction of the [so called] Western Media, and those very stupid or maybe uneducated young Muslims in distant countries who favor the opinions of such organization, and the latest instance, the shooting in Orlando, caused me to break my half-hearted promise about keeping silence about social and political issues around Islam, the Middle East and the rest of the world …

My knowledge is limited and my understanding of Islam is no more than the amount that the Lord has gifted to me, but I hope this could be an example of “enjoining the right and forbidding the wrong”, maybe some find it useful …

When the truth is kept in darkness, it is easy to deceive people, but once that it is clear that the actions and beliefs of those political organizations in the name of Islam is in clear contradiction to Allah’s revelation in Quran, we hope to live in a better world afterward …

We can’t enough blame [the so-called Western] media corporations and all the others who knew about the reality of Islam, yet contributed, encouraged or just kept silence to its misinterpretation in the news, in the society and in the minds and hearts of those very young individuals who today favor ISIS out of affection for their beliefs.

Unfortunately, for centuries those who were in search of easy money have been extremely aggressive in supporting the very groups with the wrongest interpretations of Quran and Islam with all they could, so they could have access to cheap oil, or were able to conquer their enemy in foreign territories … You may discuss in a history course that what you have done were typical practices for that time but in our eyes, having today to battle with so many wealthy and strong wrongdoers who claim to be Muslim is a side-result that you can’t just wash away from the world in which we live by a course in history! Sorry!
