This is the image of a Syrian boy.

In the three years of his life, he has seen it all and is about to die from a bombing injury. He has nowhere to go, no one to turn to, nothing to live for;  since all that a child of three ought to have in Syria has been  bombed out by highly developed, high-tech, high quality bombs, works of high precision and made in ‘highly developed’ countries.

The dying child in this picture is crying in pain and telling the doctors, “I will complain to god about you all. I will tell him everything you have done to us”.


The following Zee News video throws more light on the issue:

Then there is another image of three-year-old Aylan Kurdi lying dead on the Turkish Shore.

The pair of cute little shoes on the baby feet seem soaked in the love and affection of his mother, who also drowned on way to the Turkish shore. His parents were escaping from the horrors of war in Syria to apparent safety in West Europe.

I –the benefactor of a Highly Developed country like USA– want to ask the child: What will you tell God? That you and Aylan wanted to play with toys, go to school, listen to fairy tales from your parents, grow up as responsible members of your community? That the hi-tech death served by the Highly Developed country did not let you live beyond three years of your life because the Highly Developed countries of the US and the EU want to set up a Democracy in your homeland.

Aylan, will you tell God that you and your parents were escaping the horrors of war from Syria, created by the Highly Developed countries – to what you were told to be a safer place in Europe? Child, will you tell God that the Free Press of the US and the EU are preaching that bombs are falling on your head to set up Democracy, Freedom, and Human Rights in your homeland? Aylan, will you not tell God that the Free Press is preaching that your parents’ perilous journey was not to escape bombs and death but to share the ‘cozy life of Europe’?

Aylan, I wish you could see yourself; see the tiny clothes and shoes on your little body, lying on the Turkish shore and glowing in your mother’s love and affection, and think you are so fortunate to be away from  that shore and closer to God. Child, you are only three years old. Will you be able to tell god all that you have seen in these three years? Will you tell Him that there are places called the EU and the US that thrive on making Weapons of Mass Destruction and using them to murder and grab resources that God created for all. Will you not tell God that killers and murderers are masked in Democracy, Freedom, and Human Rights?  Tell also that God should create not flocks of sheep who are busy electing their own butcher, but more human beings who can think clearly and see through lies and deception.

Child and Aylan, I hope this time god will send you to another world where you meet human beings who can think and feel; unlike the one where you lived only for three years, where the slaughter of one person is called murder and the slaughter of millions is called FOREIGN POLICY.
