In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
Allaah [The Most High] said:
لَا تَحۡسَبَنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ يَفۡرَحُونَ بِمَآ أَتَواْ وَّيُحِبُّونَ أَن يُحۡمَدُواْ بِمَا لَمۡ يَفۡعَلُواْ فَلَا تَحۡسَبَنَّہُم بِمَفَازَةٍ۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡعَذَابِۖ وَلَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ۬
Think not that those who rejoice in what they have done (or brought about), and love to be praised for what they have not done,- think not you that they are rescued from the torment, and for them is a painful torment. [Surah Aal Imran. Ayah 188]
Imaam As-Sadi [rahimahullaah] said: They want to be praised for that which they have not done and truthful (statement) they have not uttered, so they combine evil doing and its statement, and rejoice in that. And they love to be praised for some good they have not done. [Excerpt from Tafseer As-Sadi]
Repugnant indeed is the delusion, ignorance, arrogance, denial and self-entitlement of some European journalists! Whilst reporting about those Ukrainians fleeing due to war, some European reporters could not suppress the delusion, ignorance, denial and self-entitlement that afflicts the hearts of many racist hearts and minds.
The first reporter said about the fleeing Ukrainians, “This isn’t a place- with all due respect. Uh, you know, like Iraq or Afghanistan. This is a relatively civilized, relatively European. I have to choose those words carefully too. City where you wouldn’t expect that or hope that its going to happen”.
The second reported said, “This is not a developing 3rd world nation. This is Europe”.
The third reporter said, “These are prosperous middle class people. These are not people trying to get away from areas in north Africa. They look like any European family that you would live next door to.”
The fourth reporter said, “What could be a difference here from other conflicts, you know, that could seem very far away, you know, in Africa or middle east or whatever, I mean these are Europeans that we’re seeing being killed”.
Indeed, what these four ignoramuses seek to claim is that the likes of these incidents are mostly expected in the middle east and Africa! Firstly, let us remind these four ignoramuses of the history of wars in Europe.

Thirdly, lets remind these four ignoramuses about their American forefathers: Native Americans were slaughtered in the name of ‘Civilization’. 1,500 wars and raids were authorized against the Indians and do you remember the Gnadenhutten Massacre in 1782?!
The Hiroshima Bomb? Search for what Marcel Junod – a representative of the Red cross at the time – stated!
Barbaric Sanctions and Invasion of Iraq: Do they remember the barbaric sanctions imposed on Iraq that resulted in the deaths of thousands of Iraqi children? Do you remember what some of your own journalists called an “act of military aggression launched on a false pretext!” There’s no need to give details regarding the suffering and lives lost because that is well documented. And do you remember the torture at Abu Ghuraib prison?!
This is enough a remind to these four ignoramuses. It would have been better for them to keep quiet or utter good, as it is said, “Silence beautifies the scholar and conceals the ignorance of the ignoramus”.
And Allaah knows best.
