Say no to terrorism!

Post by SEXC_BOI » Wed Jul 18, 2007 3:47 pm

Music artists have gathered together to express that they strongly back that terrorism is wrong and they do not play any part in it what so ever! do u think that making a song such as this will bare any affect? what will relly be achieved?

I think it will have an effect on people, but it won't stop the terrorism, it will just accentuate a valid point.

It's amazing the amount of people who actually don't care if a group of people decide to commit a terrorist attack on innocent people (I am referring to a group of pakistani men who I overheard in a restaurant once, and I don't think for one moment that they represent the rest of the Pakistani community, but they were supporting terrorist attacks to the full).

I think projects like these may help to distinguish the genuine people who truly don't support terrorism vs the extreme people who are living as normal civilians, and indirectly support these acts.

I honestly believe that if Muslims don't WANT to be discriminated against and assumed to be associated with terrorist groups, then this is the chance to speak up and say "actually, I don't support any extreme acts of terrorism". What is wrong is wrong, and what is right is right, whether we're talking about the acts of the west, east or middle east.

Damn imz, I like your points :)

However..... you say that Muslims in general should not be discrimated against in the first place based on the actions of Al Qaeda, just as not all Christians are discriminated against based on Hitler. With this, I completely agree, but the point is, it still happens. Especially when the terrorism exists in several countries, by people by several nationalities (British, American, Afganistani), and all having the common factor that they claim to follow Islam. So ignorant folk will assume that all Muslims are the same.

Don't you think it would be reasonable for genuine Muslims to start helping to distinguish themselves from the extremists? Until some start doing this, I don't think non-Muslim common folk will educate themselves to think from another point of view.

I'm not saying this song will change lives, but I am saying atleast someone is doing something that may contribute more positively!

Yh i agree to the point that non-extreme muslims should voice their opinions that such acts of murder are wrong so that not only can they distance themselves from it they can show and educate the non-muslims like miss s pointed out b4!

anyways what do u think of the actual video, any other artists that should have been in there, if you did it how would you do it :P

Are you sure that's you Imz? :p

The British Empire did label people such as Bhagat Singh and Udham Singh as a "terrorist", and both were sentenced to death. However, he was recognised as a freedom fighter by India's citizens. And I think what you're trying to get at by saying no one has ever actually asked a terrorist the reason behind his actions.... is that they must have been provoked by something. I.e. Bin Laden might be a total nutter, but something must have driven him to it! But whether he can be perceived as a possible "freedom fighter" is up to an individual.

The amount of sh!t that the west has caused in the East and Middle East is attrocious, and the media doesn't always educate us about this, because Western media does not want to demonise it's own soceity, especially if it is associated with certain political groups. If somebody takes away your family, your home, injures or kills the population of your village, it's only natural to fight back, and I do not for one second think that there is anything wrong with this (hence the term "freedom fighter"). However, if somebody reacts to this situation by planning to kill thousands in another country which happens to be run by the government which was to blame for your loss, then is that really justifiable? My point being - I'm not trying to say that you're saying this is right (cos I think I know you too well to think otherwise), I'm just trying to say that even if you sat down with a "terrorist" or "freedom fighter", their reasons won't always make up for their actions.

Music has always been an expression of feelings, "music is what feelings sound like", and making a piece to demonstrate one's feelings on this situation is no different to writing an article in a newspaper, or being interviewed on a documentary regarding 9/11, or even responding to this thread! :p To be honest, I doubt that the original intention of this music was even to influence people. It's just an expression of feelings, which may or may not rub off on people and make them think about how they want to respond to this situation too.

And on a side note - "terrorism" is a term used way too broadly by ignorant folk. I'm glad that you don't seem to believe in the exaggurated and broad definition. :)

I don't agree with the term "Islamic Fundamentalists" either!!

Political correctness in general in the English language is always taken so far to avoid offending so many people. I'm suprised it's not applied to such a simple and well known phrase "Islamic fundamentalists"!! grrrr!

Riz MC's track is brilliant. I saw him at the Slough Mela when he made his debut and when i came home to find where i could buy it (because downloading is bad 8) ) they weren't selling it. MTV wouldn't broadcast it because it was "too controversial." Hmm would this count as an violation of his right to free speech? Does free speech still exist in this politically-correct world we live in? :?:
