I Stand with Belgium

belgium-flag

Although I don’t normally post political writings, I just want to say that I stand with Belgium, and I pray for the victims of the attack and their families.

I only just heard about this attack moments ago from NY Times: Explosions at Brussels Airport, but given that there have been many such attacks lately, I feel close to the heart of these events.

It may be because I was in New York when the Sept. 11th attacks happened in 2001, and also because of my travels to Israel and such..  While I may not have been physically present at this particular event, I understand, to a degree, that feeling of confusion and chaos that happens.

I don’t necessarily want to get into all the political debates surrounding this (as I could see from Facebook, they began the moment people started hearing about it).

Often, I think it’s the victims that get forgotten in all the blaming and finger-pointing.  So, whatever the solution may be, I feel for those who’ve lost their lives or been injured, and I hope that we can eventually create peace, without a massacre on either side.

We’re all human beings, aren’t we?

Oh, and for those who are tweeting #stopislam, Islam is not the problem.  It’s ISIS, and radical ideology.  These are the ones giving Islam a bad name (but that’s not what the media would have you believe, I’m sure).
