By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
An anti-terror YouTube video has gone viral. This is the first time anything like this has happened - the 3 minute and 11 second video was made by a Kuwaiti telecom company named Zain.
In just a few days 2.4 million people had watched the video.
Zain, the telecommunication company is actually a regional mobile operator with more than 45 million customers.
Through the voice of a young girl, the video proclaims: "You've filled the cemeteries with our children and emptied our school desks."
The video is an ad that takes a stand against terror.
The song sung in the video contains the following lines: "Worship your God with love, with love not terror." And, "Be tender in your faith, gentle not harsh. Confront your enemy, with peace not war."
This video depicts victims of terror. It implores a terrorist, who made a suicide bombers belt which he wears throughout the video, to stop the murder and embrace a different understanding of Islam.
This video ad is very impressive. So is the response it has received.
Watch the video:
