It might sound heartless, but I won't pray.
I won't pray for those who died in Paris, because two people die every second of each day, every day.
I won't pray because it won't bring them back, or bring those who killed themselves in the name of Allah so they can be brought to justice.
I won't pray because it won't dry the tears of those who lost people who were close to them, and won't mend the bodies, minds and hearts of those who survived the assaults.
I won't pray because it won't stop people from believing that they deserved it, when such attacks take place all over the world, and no one raises a finger about it.
I won't pray because the borders will be closed, due to the fear that those who are escaping the carnage in Syria and other countries might be terrorists as well.

I won't pray because governments find excuses like the lack of money to say they can't or won't do anything.
I won't pray because religious people are barely saying a word about such events.
I won't pray because people will find it in themselves to blame their neighbors and to blame those who hate for now reason.
I won't pray because the press is talking about Paris, but barely talking about other countries where such events are taking place.
I won't pray because people are speaking out against the attacks, but aren't doing anything to stop or prevent them.
I won't pray because some countries don't feel like doing anything about it because they don't see economical or political advantages to do so.
I won't pray because the military say they help stop one foe, only to aid a country whose methods are equally as barbaric.
I won't pray because oil is worth more than blood.
I won't pray because, in a few months, no one will remember, and no one will care.
I won't pray because people spend too much time in front of a screen than they do helping others for real.
I won't pray because humanity is too selfish and self-destructive to understand that there is nothing good in spreading hate or teaching lies.
Allah qat mmat.
