A picture is worth a thousand words — if we pay attention to the details

A friend in British-Columbia has sent me this picture. Apparently, it has made the rounds around the World. The intent is certainly to make us feel compassion towards the so-called refugees being pushed out of the Middle-East to invade Europe. Most people will only look at this pictures for a few seconds, missing some troubling and revealing details.

What do you see in this picture? With the rubbish they are leaving behind in the background, a group of seven men, apparently in their twenties and thirties. Definitely in their prime. A woman. Three children. The woman appears exhausted. She is carrying two of the three children. She is walking barefoot. Most of the men are walking with their hands in their pockets, some smoking. None of them is helping that woman. Why? Because in their culture, a woman is nothing. She is just a slave.

Do you truly believe these people will integrate into your European cultures.

As this video I posted some time ago clearly illustrates, it’s easy to miss something you’re not looking for…

When [the Devil] lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. – John 8:44 ESV

    Visiblement, Mukul n’a rien compris au film et ne sait pas même pas faire la différence entre un homme et une femme^^.
    Alors, “la dissonance cognitive”,… c’est du chinois pour lui !
