Fear of Syrians and other Muslims

I am catching up with posting online my articles.

Yesterday I talked with a friend from Germany and during the conversation it came up the point of current situation with the immigrants from Syria who are literally "flooding" Europe. Here we must also mention the point that many of the immigrants don't have passports and thus there is a point of concern that there are many other people from the region of Middle East which take advantage of the situation and try to get to Europe pretending that they are Syrians escaping the war zone.

Whether this is right or moral we will leave it for today and instead we'll focus in this article on the point of fear of Muslims which came up during the conversation with my friend.

So why so many people in Europe and United States fear the Muslims ?

Well... the obvious point is the Al-Qaeda and the threat of terrorists attacks from the extremist followers of the Muslim religion. But is it enough to justify our fear of the Muslims ?

One thing is for sure... taking things for granted and accepting something based on the general opinion has been proven on many occasions as wrong approach. And the simple reason for it is that the general opinion is being manipulated intentionally by the media which does not show the true facts and instead it shows what is being convenient for those who own and control it.

Why is this happening, would be a topic for another article.

Anyway in our situation we have right now, the immigrants from Syria and other countries are flooding the Europe in which most of the people have in their mind engraved the fear of Muslims. And this really needs to be addressed as this can be a point of serious problems not just for few European countries but also for the whole world.

To be continued
