Poll Context: Mega rich Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has called for ‘understanding, empathy and love’ in order to defeat terrorism. Zuckerberg wrote to his followers on Facebook in the aftermath of the recent bombings by various terrorist groups that killed dozens and injured hundreds in Ankara, Brussels and Lahore.
‘Each of these attacks was different, but all had a common thread: they were carried out with a goal to spread fear and distrust, and turn members of a community against each other.
‘I believe the only sustainable way to fight back against those who seek to divide us is to create a world where understanding and empathy can spread faster than hate.
‘Where every single person in every country feels connected and cared for and loved. That’s the world we can and must build together.’
Do you agree that ‘understanding, empathy and love’ can defeat terrorism?
