News that Matters

Syrian security forces shot dead at least 26 protesters on Friday as thousands rallied on a Day of Defiance against the Syrian regime.
Most people wouldn't have noticed. Now imagine if, say, Israel had punched a protester in the mouth. Or America had shot Osama bin Laden's Wife in the face.

Dan Gillerman summed it up:
Every single day, Muslims are killed by Muslims. You do not see a single Muslim leader get up and say, “Enough is enough.”

It’s nearly as if we live in a world where if Christians kill Muslims, it’s a crusade. If Jews kill Muslims, it’s a massacre. And when Muslims kill Muslims, it’s the Weather Channel. Nobody cares.
