If you are not Muslim,
You probably never gave this any serious thought,
But the people who suffer the most
Because of the savagery of those who abuse,
Kidnap, maim and slaughter people,
Abusing the name of Allah,
Are ordinary Muslim people
Who are under suspicion everywhere now.
Just being Muslim,
Wearing Muslim garb,
Makes you a target of suspicion
And fear and anger and hatred.
By the actions of others
It is unfair.
No one is responsible
For crimes committed by someone else.
No one should be held accountable
For atrocities committed by another person,
Unless they have caused, encouraged or supported
Yes. We should judge people -
By what THEY do.
Not for what others do.
