Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has come out against recent terrorist attacks in Pakistan, Belgium and Turkey, saying understanding and love are the only means by which to fight such violence meant to "spread fear and distrust."
"Each of these attacks was different, but all had a common thread: they were carried out with a goal to spread fear and distrust, and turn members of a community against each other," the social media mogul said Sunday on Facebook.
Zuckerberg made the call for global action shortly after a suicide bomber killed 72 people in the Pakistani city of Lahore.
"I believe the only sustainable way to fight back against those who seek to divide us is to create a world where understanding and empathy can spread faster than hate, and where every single person in every country feels connected and cared for and loved," he wrote in the post. "That's the world we can and must build together."After communicating these heartfelt if egregiously squishy words, Zuckerthingy broke out into song:
Imagine there's no jihad,
It's easy if you try.
No Quran beseechments,
And no taqiyyah lies.
Imagine all the ummah
Shunning the shariah...
You may say I'm a genius
'Cuz I birthed the Facebook craze.
I'd love to win a Nobel Peace Prize
And hear lots of "hurrays"...
