Like every ordinary Muslim in Bahrain, I am fed up with IS killing innocent people in the name of Islam, a religion which prohibits such crimes.
IS actually imposes an existential threat to Islam. Most of its victims are Muslims and most of those fighting against IS are Muslims.
Western media, however, ignore IS crime against non-Westerners. On March 7, for example, about 55 people (seven civilians, 12 members of Tunisia’s security forces and 36 attackers) died in a gun battle ad IS attacked a Tunisian town.
Bombing Muslim countries and killing ordinary Muslims will only increase IS recruits. All lives are equal and all lives matter.
