In the four days since extremists slaughtered 129 people in Paris, millions of witnesses — present only through their computer screens — posted prayers and pictures and promised solidarity. For four hours, then five, then six, they trended Twitter hashtags like #PorteOuverte and #PrayforParis. They laid French flags over their Facebook photos and shared images by artists like Jean Jullien. And just as quickly, their posts reverted: back to quips about sports teams, viral videos, pictures with friends — now posted by little avatars striped in the French blue, white and red. These posts feel inappropriate — indecorous, somehow.
I am proud to be here two hundred years later, studying international economics at a school thriving with many new people from all around the world. I am Frederik Pedersen a student of the London School of Economics and Political Science and I have a question for you. I want to ask you, the listener if you think immigration is good for Britain. Surely, you must have thought about this once through all the commotion in the media, about mass immigration from the war in the Middle East. Everyone have an opinion on this and many of them are probably very good opinions but I have seen new discussions rise from people and politicians after the new restriction and border security made by the Swedish and German government and let 's not forget about the terrorist attack in France.
This type of law being more prominent in Islam countries doesn’t necessarily mean that it respects the laws of ethics. Under any circumstance, being religious or atheist, implementing sexist and misogynistic aspects of life into society is unethical and does not respect moral principles.
There are policies being developed by states and groups to help fight discrimination against muslims. The overall increase in Muslim hate crime is tremendous. Media and surveys show that muslims are feared and distrusted, and many communities have complained they do not want any Mosques in their neighborhood. People in office positions have claimed they believe mosques are controlled by Islamic Extremists. Although muslims receive an excessive amount of hate, immigrant citizens do as well.
Within minutes, the whole world frantically watched the disturbing incident. There was no surprise that within a few hours all the world news channels prioritised the full coverage of Paris, to an extent where the Beirut bombings were almost neglected. Tragically, an article from the New York Times mentioned that people of Beirut felt “forgotten” and that their deaths were “an irrelevant fleck along the international news
These attacks resulted in about one hundred and thirty deaths, not including the lives of the perpetrators of the attacks. The people who decided to bomb Paris were doing so in the name of their god or at least their interpretation of their god. They sacrificed themselves for an idea, and even if we, in the Western world, feel like what they did was wrong and unjust, our opinions from the other side don’t destroy the heroism of what was done. In Liz Goodwin’s article, “The doomsday ideology of ISIS” she states “That fighters believe they are fulfilling a grand destiny helps explain why thousands of them have been willing to leave more comfortable lives in nations all around the world to join the dangerous and reviled group.” The people who perpetrated the attack in France have deep-rooted beliefs in their god, who will lead
I personally love that he did this because this lessens the brutality in France. We should only be fighting wars that are significant and will help us grow as a nation. We should not be losing our men and starting wars over something so trivial. Also, this idea produces peace and unity to our land. With less wars, we can actually focus on pleasurable things like music, art, writing, etc.
Currently, the France, that people know today, is the aftermath of the French Revolution. The government of France “is a unique hybrid of presidential and parliamentary systems that reflect rich political traditions and culture” (Guardian). In the current France, there is no absolute monarchy. There is no divine ruler like King Louis XVI. France is now a democratic country with the President as the leader along with his hers subsidiaries.
The mass shooting in Paris, November 2015 is one of the most horrible terrorist attacks I had ever knew. The terrorist killed 130 people, make 413 people seriously injured. Since the Second World War, this attack were the deadliest on France. BODY Reason 1: In America, people use gun for 2 reason: killing people, or killing themselves. Example 1— In an average year, 62% of firearm deaths in the U.S. are suicide.
