Sira Diakite's Op-Ed: ISIS IS NOT MUSLIM

ISIS IS NOT MUSLIM

by Sira Diakite

All over the world people get the idea that any and every Muslim is terrorist. Why are we judged? Why aren't we respected? Most importantly, why are we unwanted? The ISIS Group, the group that call themselves muslim and kill people, the group led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who probably didn't have anything better to do but make a group of killer. I'm tired of being looked at like a piece of shit. Why is that everyone feel like they need to judge me my brothers and sister, we have nothing to do with these group of people and the truth is this group is Not Muslim. A Muslim does not kill and I'm going to prove that. Let's take a minute to look at some horrifying, disturbing pictures of the damage thats has been done by  these people, all these innocent Dead bodies and innocent people.

As you take a minute to look at these pictures, think about if these people were your people. It's sad to hear that you lost someone so close to you. These people will never see another daylight in their life, there's no coming back. They're gone for good!!!

THE ISIS GROUP

The Isis group originated in Syria and Iraq , Isis group was originally an al-Qaida group in Iraq, al-Qaida is Arabic for foundation. A guerrilla terrorist organization established by Osama Bin Laden in 1987. In 2014 they controlled more than 34,000 square miles in Syria and Iraq. This terrorist organization attacks kill and injured people all over the world and spread fear. They focus on using the Army,Navy etc untrained foreign volunteers as suicide bombers. According to CNN.com, "the Isis group has went global with 75 attacks in 20 countries and have killed 1,280 people.” They use social media as a tool to show off their work. “According to United Nation report Isis believed to be holding 34,000 people as slaves.” This is just crazy people are living in fear because of these people, and everyday where all losing a large amount of people. Who will be next ? Nobody knows, let's just pray there isn't a next.

Not Muslim

I strongly believe the Isis group is not who they say they are. Although Syria and Iraq are Islamic states, this group of people should not consider themselves as Muslim. A real Muslim doesn't kill, doesn't use Allah's name and then kill someone. According to jihadwatch.org “everyone is affected and question are being raised against (Islam) due to the Isis activities.”  “Those who are doing this all these in the name of Koran Allah are misusing the name of Koran and Allah. See no religion teaches all these ………. a real Muslim can never do all these things," said Choudhury from Jihad Watch. That was from another point of view, and this person also agrees that a real Muslim can never do all these things the Isis group is doing. In the text juancode.com it states “terrorism is above all murder, murder is strictly forbidden in the Quran. Qur’an 6:151 says, do not kill a soul that God has made sacrosanct, save lawfully.” You can't consider  yourself as a Muslim and kill a creation of God, it says in the the Qur’an and so the Isis group need to stop using this religion because Muslim is not what they are. This is just one thing forbidden; there are so many wrong things forbidden in the religion, but people have yet to understand that.

Places that Have Been Attacked

The ISIS group has attacked so many places, they can't even be listed. Some places they attacked were France, on Nov 13, 2015, where terrorist attacks across Paris killed more than 100 people. On Nov 24, Isis militants attacked a hotel in the northern Sinai peninsula, killing at least seven people. On Dec 26, 2015 in Bangladesh, there was an attack on a Shiite mosque during evening prayer. Can you believe that? And they still consider themselves Muslim. In Libya, on January 4, the Islamic state militants attempted to capture an oil port in the fighting that left at least seven people dead. These are just some of the many attacks. I hope people can see and understand the things this terrorist group is doing, and know that they are not Muslim. I hope to see changes and I hope my brothers and sisters, and I, get the respect that we need.
