How to confront cyber bullying?

By Fr. Dr.Rif'at Bader

Bullying implies ways to hurt others aggressively and supremely. This term has recently become popular, especially in schools and places where youth outpour their anger and aggressiveness.

Electronic bullying is an act that manipulates "information and communications technologies to support intentional, repetitive and hostile behaviors by an individual or group, as they are intended to harm a person or other persons." In most cases the victims cannot defend themselves.

Bullying persons may be known, or they could impersonate others--who are simply unknown--but they can enjoy the support of several people to their violent inclination, even if they are unaware of the victims' personalities.

A few days ago, a conference was held in Rome titles, "Stop Cyber Bullying "designed to curtail cyber bullying which has been marked on the third Friday of June since 2012.On this day official, private, popular, cultural and religious institutions mass efforts to curtail this phenomenon which hurts others to the point that they sometimes resort to suicide to free themselves from the cyber "persecution''.

Since the conference tackles an international and humanitarian problem, Pope Francis sent a recorded television message, in which he addressed the participating youth saying, "In the pharmacy do not sell remedies against bullying, laboratories have not yet achieved the formula. Meanwhile, what to do? The only way is to share, to live together, to dialogue, to listen to the other, to take time to walk together, to take time because it is time that makes the relationship. Do not be afraid to dialogue: each of us has something to give to the other. Each one of us has something good to give to the other, each one of us needs to receive something good from the other." He also said, "Declare war on bullying, because it diminishes dignity, and stand up for dialogue; walking together, with patience of listening to the other. The peace will then be strong, and that same strong peace will let you discover your own dignity, your own dignity.''

Great efforts are being exerted in Western societies to combat bullying and cyber bullying in particular, and we have in our beloved country, Jordan, a unit that serves to combat electronic crimes which includes bullying .Yet, we have to find a mechanism to ensure cooperation among our educational and cultural institutions to put an end to this phenomenon that has become a nightmare. We did not pay attention this year to this international day to curtail this scourge, but we can turn every day into a global day to stop bullying.
