What end of the scale are you on? Do you believe

that terror attacks are hoaxes, or can you relate to

a terror attack survivor whose mental pain drove

her to euthanasia?

Today, we look at the spectrum of reactions to

terrorism, starting with a new poll that reveals a

shocking percentage of people who believe in

terrorism conspiracy theories. Not only do

some believe that attacks weren’t real, they

believe that the victims and their families are

lying. You will hear what: gender, age, denial,

cynicism, Covid, and where you get your news

from has to do with it.

Next, we move down the scale and look at an

example of what contributes to people believing

conspiracy theories: the recent terror attack in

Belgium, where a man knifed two policemen

patrolling the neighborhood of the terrorists

who perpetrated the Paris and Brussels attacks.

But, as usual, the ‘authorities’ are stalling to

avoid calling it what it is: terrorism.

Finally, we look at the other extreme of the

scale – the tragic story of a young woman who

was collateral damage of the 2016 terror attack

at the Zaventem airport in Brussels. She wasn’t

physically injured, but she was so traumatized

and haunted by these memories, that she

developed psychiatric problems that tortured

her to the extent that she requested euthanasia.

knowledge about these stories that I share with
