No one cares about the Palestinians, and here's why

23 July 2014, 07:27
Syrian conflict killed 170 000 people, almost 2000 of them Palestinian. Do you remember there being worldwide protests for them? Do you? I don't.
Whenever Israel and Hamas get into a scuffle the world EXPLODES with protest and disgust. So far just over 500 Palestinians have died in the conflict. The protests are massive. Jews are being assaulted all over as a result, synagogues are being fire bombed. People are seriously angry.

So let's compare the two situations. 2000 Palestinians die in Syria (among the 170 000 who died). Crickets. 500 die in Gaza. MASSIVE RAAAAAAAGE.

What's the difference between the two? There's death, destruction in common. People are suffering. What could be the difference? 
The Jews.

Dozens of people die daily in suicide and car bombings and shootings in Afghanistan and Iraq and NO ONE seems to care. Muslims in South Africa are pretty chilled about it. Just another day in the Middle East, bra. 

Here's the bottom line: no Muslims care about other Muslims dying unless the Jews are involved. The protests only exist because of the Jews. Ergo, pretty sure we can conclude that Muslims pretty much just loathe the Jews at the end of the day and will gladly speak out and protest as long as they're involved, but don't care otherwise.

It makes sense though doesn't it? Like, seriously, why don't Muslims protest when Palestinians die in other conflicts? Rhetorical question since I answered it above and all.

Cheers, folks.

Many conclude that Yemen is yet another step towards the cataclysmic sectarian war and , quite possibly, the trigger that leads the region to this ultimate battle. I, for one, can find no reason not to hold a similar position. Read more...
