When are 700+ Dead Muslims not newsworthy?

Calvera: Once I rob a bank in Texas; your government get after me with a whole army… whole army! One little bank. Is clear the meaning: in Texas, only Texans can rob banks.

The Magnificent Seven 1960

Sunday an Arab paper , Asharq al Awsat wrote about escalating fighting that caused the death of over 700 Muslims.

Abdul Rahman said the death toll of Thursday’s clashes was 396 people, while Friday’s total reached 314, adding that 90 more people were still unaccounted for, although they were also expected to have been killed.

Given that this total is more than double the number of people killed in that Malaysian Air shootdown one might expect the media to express their outrage, for Muslims on twitter to be appalled, for protests to break out all over the world and for the US and western governments to urge restraint.

Ain’t gonna happen, and Breitbart London explains why:

From reading the international and national news you would probably never have known that last Thursday and Friday alone, over 700 people were killed in Syria at the hands of jihadists and pro-Assad forces. Muslim on Muslim, Arab on Arab, human on human, whatever you like to think of it as – Western media is doing an awful job of reporting these abhorrent incidences – and I think I know why.

You see those people were killed in Syria and the people who killed the are fellow Muslims so naturally they don’t count.

Lawrence Askowitz points out that this is not a new phenomenon inFirst One Through. People who apply different standards to Jews than to others are by definition anti-Semites. And the world’s media and leftists consistently blame Israel for the deaths of Muslims, yet by his calculations, 90% of Muslim casualties in wars are at the hands of other Muslims.

You will not see the people doing social media for Hamas talking about these people, you will not hear their stories, our their parents or children crying over their deaths.  In fact if your only source of info is the western MSM media, you likely won’t hear about them at all.

Via Doc’s Talk.

Closing question I wonder if any of the feminists RS McCain or anyone screaming #waronwomen will object to this:

ISIS reportedly carried out the stoning of a woman charged with adultery in the main stadium of the city of Tabqa on Thursday. SOHR said ISIS fighters brought a car filled with rocks and stoned the woman they accused of adultery to death

or this:

“I was walking down the street when a car suddenly stopped and a group of armed women got out,” she says. “They insulted me and yelled at me. They took me to one of their centers and kept me locked in a room. Nobody talked to me or told me the reason for my detention. One of the women in the brigade came over, pointing her firearm at me. She then tested my knowledge of prayer, fasting and hijab.”

The fighter told Zainab she had been arrested because she had been walking alone, without an escort, and because her hijab was not worn properly. “You should be punished for taking your religion lightly,” she told Zainab, before threatening harsher punishment should she be arrested again.

Two hours later, she was released. But for Zainab – and other women here – the message was clear.

The last one via Jihad watch.

Actually I don’t wonder at all, if you can’t blame Jews or the western republican Christian patriarchy it just isn’t evil.
