Killing in the name of Fiction

on May 25, 2013

After the low life cowardly murder of a man in Woolwich by two others who proclaimed it was for Islam, there are people calling for bloody revenge on all Muslims.

Stay calm.

Anyone can kill in the name of anyone or anything. It does not make them a terrorist or freedom fighter or vigilante… and it does not make all others from that faith, group, country or whatever a murderer.

It just makes those who carried it out murderers.

No one else. Just them.

Don’t make it into something it isn’t.

Don’t give them attention or time of day.

My heartfelt condolences go out to the family & friends of the victim, Drummer Rigby of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.

  1. I generally agree – but I note that one of the killers explicitly cited a political motivation, and that he wanted people to be frightened by his actions. So I would say that he was *trying* to be a terrorist, but failed, and now he’s just a murderer.

      It is said that one man’s freedom fighter is another man’s terrorist. The thing is, from the outside looking in, a killer is a killer.

      Violence is a last resort, and I’m very sorry to those who feel that an act of violence makes a point, but have you really exhausted all other options?

      (P.S: The answer is ‘no, you haven’t. So hang up your knives, ammo belts & bomb suits & try something else.)
