Whilst Donald Trump spews hate, US Muslims show their compassion.

IMHO Donald Trump is a clown. But not like Crusty the Clown, but a dangerous one. His hate speech against muslims does not seem to have any limits. Whilst Trump is tying to spread hate, these Muslims are showing compassion in the aftermath of the terrible shooting in San Bernardino last week.

Mixed feelings

It feels a bit strange to actually emphasise that Muslims stand by the victims of the San Bernardino tragedy. Of course the overwhelming majority of Muslims is peaceful and against violence. Like most well thinking people are. However, given all the negative media coverage and political polarisation, it’s important to share these images.

Fight evil with good

In order to help the families of the victims of the San Bernardino shooting, the Californian neurologist Dr. Faisal Qazi has started a crowdfunding campaign. They have already collected over $180.000.

Faisal said that "We wish to respond to evil with good, as our faith instructs us, and send a powerful message of compassion through action."

What a breath of fresh air compared to the fear mongering rhetoric of Trump. This is one of the best ways to show how big the lies are Trump is trying to sell us.
