French Montana Urges Others to Blame Crazy People Not Muslims For Paris Attacks
The horrifying events that took place in Paris, France last Friday, Nov. 13 have shaken the world to its core and has varying opinions that range from sympathy for the victims to Xenophobia and open hatred towards the entire Muslim population. ISIS, the terrorist group who has claimed responsibility for the 129 deaths, is based in Iraq and Syria and its members believe in Islam and claim religious, political and military authority over all Muslims worldwide. With Muslims fleeing Iraq, Syria and other war-torn countries in the Middle East and looking for refuge in western countries, many are pointing at these refugees as responsible for terrorist attacks--which is the complete wrong stance.
French Montana, who is Muslim, was stopped by TMZ cameras when he was leaving the club over the weekend and said not to blame the attacks on the entire Muslim population but on "crazy people." When the cameraman asked French "what do you say to people who will blame the attacks on Muslims?" The rapper responded, "As-salamu alaykam," a Muslim greeting that translates to "Peace be with you."
