People with signs saying ‘the end of the world is nigh’ are probably still seen occasionally, they are good for a laugh and I imagine no one takes them seriously.
Maybe he doesn’t have a job, perhaps we should jail him for such scaremongering?
So when a Dutch-Moroccan woman who works in the department of Cyber Security at the Ministry of Justice in Holland tweeted that ISIS was an Israeli ploy to tarnish the name of Islam, responses generally were,’how ridiculous!’. Presumably, it is almost as crazy a thing to say as the end of the world is nigh. Israeli security manufacturing ISIS to blacken Muslims would be laughed at and given the ‘tinfoil hat’ treatment. So why then was it such a bad thing to say that she was suspended, then sacked? If there is no truth in it, why should it be considered dangerous or worthy of sacking a woman from the job she held for several years? The question we should be asking is ‘why did they sack her?’. Once we think about that, it answers the question of why her initial tweet rendered her unemployed.
