Here is a bit from a story in the Independent:
Just 24 hours ahead of a planned five-day truce in Yemen, the country’s capital Sanaa has been hit with one of the worst days of bombing since a Saudi-led coalition began their air campaign against Houthi rebels in late March.
In videos taken by residents in Sanaa massive explosions can be seen across the capital before a planned ceasefire to allow the UN to deliver essential aid into the beleaguered country begins today at 8pm GMT on Tuesday.
The Independent has videos of those attacks the story continues
According to the UN, over 1,400 people die as a result of the conflict in Yemen, with many more displaced by the fighting.
In war people die furthermore if you are going to fight a war in a location other than an open field you are going to get civilian casualties. It’s one of many reasons why war is to be avoided.
But Avi Meyer in Israel has is wondering why these Arab Casualties are producing sounds of silence from Activists all over the world:
When Israel, whose citizens were being bombarded by Hamas, struck Gaza, "human rights activists" raged around the world. Where are they now?

Apparently arab lives don’t matter until they are killed by jews
These human rights activist remind me of the “Black Live Matter” crowd. The thousands of blacks slaughtered by other black men in the inner city didn’t create the #blacklivesmatter hashtag, but if a black man is killed by a policeman in the performance of their duty that’s a cause celeb worth rioting over.
So there is a simple solution. Want to get the activist crowd worried about those 1400 dead in Yemen, tell the world the Saudi aircraft doing the bombing runs are being piloted by Israeli pilots.
Do that and the will be no other story in the world worth reporting.
Update: It’s worth noting that at least one Syrian Paper is not only going there but doing one better
Why is Saudi Arabia so concerned over Israel? Not because they are Zionist.
It is because, you see, the Saudi royal family is really Jewish!
Jews who were fleeing persecution ended up in the Gulf and pretended to be Arabs, according to his version of the legend. They prayed with Muslims and buried their dead in Muslim cemeteries.
But those crafty Jews, who took over Arabia, created the Wahhabi faith in order to destroy Islam from within.
I haven’t seen such lame propaganda since the Clinton’s last attempt to explain their finances.
