forum. After a series of terrorist attacks, France suffered mental trauma and doubted the integration model. Worried about spreading the merger of immigrants in political and media discourse, we, as participants in immigrant education, take another approach, based on insight and meeting people. We are not naive: the use of terrorism for ideological, political or religious purposes will not stop immediately. However, if our society is to survive these painful trials, it must gain empathy and allow everyone to be tolerated.
Although France is not the main target of terrorists, it has paid a heavy price. Six years after the 2015 attack, it is still being hit by fanatics claiming to be Islam. Different tragedies, for the same reason: to punish a country based on freedom of speech and secularism. This violence is designed to intimidate us, divide us, and we will not minimize it. Like all forms of fundamentalism, Islamism seeks to undermine our ability to form societies and push our leaders to adopt policies that are considered discriminatory, which can encourage extremism from all sides.
Certain mechanisms of political and media discourse have established systemic links between Islam, Islamism, immigration, insecurity and terrorism, and these links are rooted in our statements. However, it is impossible to prove the causality between these concepts. The phenomenon of terrorism presents a huge scale, but compared with 14 million French immigrants, 5 million Muslims within the territory, and thousands of asylum seekers or beneficiaries, there are only a few dozen of these dangerous individuals. Remember, three-quarters of the perpetrators of terrorist acts are French.
Under the influence of collective trauma, these shortcuts have exacerbated the impact on immigrants, refugees and those who are considered “Another”. Because the perpetrators are descendants of foreigners or immigrants and say they are performing “In the name of Islam”Will all immigrants, all so-called Muslims become suspects? To succumb to these fears is to impose collective punishment. The call for jihad, self-service on social networks, border and network surveillance cannot stop its spread. Finally, the speech of internal enemies may lead to suspicion of anyone who belongs to the visible minority.
