Muslim Casualty Only Count When Jews Are Blamable

Reader comment on item: Why Does Hamas Want War?

Submitted by Ludvikus (United States), Jul 24, 2014 at 11:00

The genocidal massacres of human beings in Syria and Iraq are not only numerically by far greater, but are done primarily among fellow Arabs and Muslims - at this very moment.; but neither the media, the UN, or the international Christian and Muslim public seems to care far, far less!

But why is that? Because the bias and bigatry and the ingrained Antisemitism needs to demontrate the alleged immorality of Jews who, after all, are in the Bible and the Koran, and Stubernly, and Arrogantly refuse to accept Christ as the Savior, or Mohammad as the Prophet.

One way of presenting this Narrative is to suggest the Unconscious unfolding of Chistian Islamic morality among the Abrahamic populations sourrounding the Mediterranean Sea and the Western World, including much of the Americas; this phenomena is well observed and witnessed in this current news article:

Daniel Pipes replies:

No argument that antisemitism plays a role but it is not the only factor. As I pointed out a half year ago at http://www.danielpipes.org/blog/2006/10/public-opinion-in-war:

Israel and Israelis are an outsized topic in the media, a pattern that goes back to its very creation. Jews are news, as they say. This should no longer surprise anyone any more. It has its negative implications, as in the Mandela memorial instance, but it also has positive ones (e.g., Netanyahu very effectively got out his message about the Geneva deal, turning around opinion in the United States). Israelis should always act with this knowledge ‚Äčin mind, exploit it, and avoid the negatives. That they keep being surprised by it, as in this case, points to their unending lack of awareness about the political warfare that is as important as military warfare.
