The following post is long overdue, and now I have decided to finally write it.
What is it about?
I live in New York City, and I have lived the September 11, 2001 terror attack and its aftermaths.
I have heard some words of resignation from common people of different backgrounds and different nationalities which are living and working in N.Y., after the last terrorism attack in Mumbai.
What frightens me the most of this new phenomenon is: we are getting used to the idea that terrorism is everywhere and we have to live with it.
After the Mumbai attacks, I came to the conclusion that Islamic terrorism is the new enemy of the peoples, any people that dwells on earth's face. Doesn't matter to those fanatics who are their victims, we are seeing radical Islamists in action everywhere.
To those Islamic fanatics doesn't matter from which nationality, skin color, or religion are their victims: rich, poor, white, black, yellow, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Jew, atheist, and even Muslim victims doesn't really matter to them.
The attacks in the African Embassies in the 1998 bombings, and following it a string of terrorist attacks in New York, Madrid, London, Casablanca, Bali, and now Mumbai together with a multitude of forgotten minor terrorist attacks, they are all symptoms of a new threat from an indiscriminating war. An indiscriminate war waged against the innocents and their ideas of free and open societies.
Islamic terrorism has masked itself into a global jihad, an Islamic jihad waged against imaginary oppressions from the Western cultures imposed on Muslim lands and on their archaic beliefs.
But the sad truth is: who is paying the consequences of this holy war are the common people. All of the common people around the world, which have done nothing wrong to a fundamental Islam.
By looking at the past terrorism attacks, I realized that Islamic terrorism is here to stay. And consequently to it, much of the free world is adopting a negative tendency of acceptance to these terrorism recurrences.
What can be done, to fight this sad tendency?
From my part, I can blog in a useful way. I can start here, right now, by announcing a, "World day against terrorism". I know, I know, it sounds too much of an emphatic declaration. But at least, I'm doing something about this tendency.
What will be the next steps?
The next steps are up to the communities of bloggers, from the cyberspace. All the willing bloggers around the world! If all together we could join forces by talking about this initiative, and possibly later to adopt a plan of actions. It would be the first step to counterattack the nefarious schemes of the terrorism evilness.
This initiative to be set in motion needs all of your help. Talking about it and consequently by creating a momentum of initiatives, which then could be the very first steps in creating something good in the hope to fight the negative aftereffects of the terrorism, in the people's minds and souls.
Perhaps with our blogs, we could really create a movement of people around the world capable of stopping Muslim fanatics to terrorize the world.
And if we will succeed by promoting this initiative, it will even be a way to pay some respect to the memory of all the innocent victims from the past terrorism attacks all around the world.
In the long run, we'll even feel good about ourselves by doing something useful to the world, while we will be using our blogging habits for a just cause.
By announcing today a, "World day against terrorism" I hope in the near future that will really be there, a day dedicated against the terrorism. Possibly, a day against any form of terrorism act perpetrated on innocent lives.
Now, I will be waiting for all of your responses at this initiative. Please, let me know what you think about it, and what can be done to really jump start it.
