  • Imagine ... we give peace a chance ....

    Imagine

    John Lennon 1971

    Imagine there's no heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today...

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will live as one

    These 2 songs are runing in my head since some days.....

    Beyond a very bad movie, the present events suggest me some ideas :
    1) That integrist have a great hate against western peoples and values as tey are looking for any pretext to punish every one they can as if we would punish a whole communauty for something done by one member.

    2) If an european tried to punish all muslims for TWC attentates, he would be looked upon as a racist and a mad man and muslims would be the first ones to shout ... And they would be right !

    3) The movie is bad but they were entitled to make it using honnest ways. One can criticize insult ideas as long as you don't insult people .....

    anti muslim racism is not allowed in France, anti islam ideas are allowed.
Working...
