Since 2001 and Ben Laden, I've always been wondering how young people in the US saw Islam.
Here in France, the tv and medias sell us an ideal of USA being so paranoiac and islamophobics.
And it seems to appear that the contagion is spreading throughout France and Europe more globally.
I am Muslim, from North Africa. And Islam represents nearly 7% of the population which is a lot !!
Also, as 90% of immigrants in france are now from muslims countries, they all live in suburbs (where poor people live) and muslims are 60% of the prisons population (fuckkkkk).
The worst in this story is that when Hip Hop appeared in France, it had been take by the poorest people and they were muslim (black and arabs).
So muslims in France are shown as the gangsters. They are like your black people.
This is why so many white people are now being affraid...
And how's Islam in the US ?
I think people are afraid of muslims in the US. It's like, they're either afraid of being afraid.....they don't wanna be called racist. Then others are more blatant about their fear. They just think muslims are terrorists.
And there's a problem. I've met all sorts of muslims. I've met a dude who called himself a NY muslim. Basically, he believes in the allah of the q'uran, but he doesn't practice the religion to the T. I've met ignorant aggressive hood muslims. And I've met incredibly peaceful tolerant loving muslims. And obviously, we are all aware that there are murderous muslims. And that is what makes people afraid. You don't know which one you might be dealing with. Then you have impressionable sheep who believe anything on a screen so being fed fear is not helping.
Me personally, I just take it on a case by case scenario. I can understand the Europeans fear. Islam wants to take over the world, right? From the little I know, the end game is for islam to be the sole religion on earth. So, I mean, for a very secular nation(s) that is scary. They're gonna see it as a threat to their way of life. Is it right? IDK. I don't know enough about islam and I don't know those immigrant's intentions. But it can def look a certain way when you have a massive flood of people immigrating and demanding laws be changed to accommodate them.
