Fishermen in Gaza went fishing after war: They found fish that was never seen before in Gaza, in huge quantities

God (Allah) says in the Holy Qur’an, “. . . if anyone slew a person . . . it would be as if he slew the whole of mankind; and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole of mankind” (5:32). It is a sad reality when we consider the violence different social groups face around the world from the beginning of time to the present. It is something we all hope can be changed for the future.
Throughout history, we have seen devastating outcomes to large numbers of people due to the actions of others. The world has seen numerous lives unjustly taken; it seems that the war against each other because of race or beliefs is an ongoing one. Today Muslims face similar, if not the same, threats as did the Jews in the Holocaust and the African slaves beginning in the seventeenth century. A few extreme individuals that call themselves Muslims and commit acts of violence coupled with ignorance about what Islam is about have caused global hostility through the media towards true Muslims today when they are truly a peaceful nation.
