Have you ever been in jail? Or in an underground pit for days? Or in an area of operations that has been closed due to war and you were in the thick of events? If you haven’t been in places like that, I’ll explain in vain. If life pampered you and could go anywhere you wanted, said what your mind dictated and you were not restrained by the boundaries of physical states or expectations, then you don’t understand what I am going to say.

On the other hand, my article will be about Europe and not Hungary. In Hungary, Islam is a terrifying word used by politics, but in reality, it is present only scattered and has no social weight. Christianity, on the other hand, is there and is present in a defining way. Therefore, my opinion below cannot be applied to Islam in Hungary, but is applied to Christianity.
Nor take life - which Allah has made sacred - except for just cause. And if anyone is slain wrongfully, we have given his heir authority (to demand qisas or to forgive): but let him nor exceed bounds in the matter of taking life; for he is helped (by the Law). Quran 17:33
