Terrorism "expert" Steven Emerson claimed that non-Muslims no longer even go to the city, and that gangs of people attack those not wearing religious garb. Twitter, of course, had a field day with that sentiment by sharing their own #FoxNewsFacts
Following the hostage crisis in Sydney, Australia many Muslims in the country felt nervous about potential backlash against their faith. Instead, Australians are taking up the banner of #IllRideWithYou on social media, encouraging those who fear retaliation to ride public transit with those who support and care for them.
Another heartwarming example of social media doing good in the world, and the Australian people setting an example for the kind of behavior we should all have in response to trying times as these.
