Be openminded about Islam
During summer vacation the 10th Grade English Newspaper class were asked to choose a news story and then summarise it. They also had to give their opinion. This is the report that Ms. Tsujiura wrote. She chose the incident in Turkey of the child suicide bomber.
A bomb worn by a child exploded in the central part of Gaziantep in Turkey. According to President Erudoan 51 people died and 69 people were injured. This case may be IS's crime. The scene is a residential area where there are many Kurds living. According to the residents, there was a wedding party happening in the street at the time.
I was so sad to hear about this case. IS has killed many people. It is terrible. I don't agree with killing people for any reason. I went to the Islamic Centre in England on George Fox Tour. And I found that Islam isn't scary. Muslim people are just like you and me.
But before going England, I thought Islam is scary because I only knew about the news, so I think many people think Islam is scary. I'm afraid of that. Also, this case happened during a wedding ceremony. I was so sorry about that. IS recruits young boys and trains them as combatants. It's bad, too. I think the boy wearing the bomb was one of those boys. I hope to see peace in the world soon.
