More Muslims Killed in 2 Days in Syria than in Entire Hamas Gaza War


If only Assad had converted to Judaism, maybe there would be just as much outrage.

More than 700 people were killed in Syria over the course of Thursday and Friday, in what activists say were the bloodiest 48 hours of fighting in the conflict to date.

The head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), Rami Abdul Rahman, told Asharq Al-Awsat that this was the first time casualties had topped 700 in the space of two days since the conflict began in 2011.

It’s not too surprising to see Assad taking advantage of a media environment where every reporter is babbling about Gaza.

And 700 dead in two days is what civilian casualties in a real war look like.

    It’s similar to the selective outrage when a single black is killed by a non black compared to that when tens of blacks are killed by other blacks in Chicago.

      And also there’s an absence of outrage when blacks kill whites, such as the four brutes who kidnapped, raped, tortured that white couple a few years ago, in an unbelievably savage manner. They forfeited their lives, but got life imprisonment.

      Assad is not a Jew so nobody cares, especially the rampaging Arab Muslims in Europe turning the place into an Islamic toilet.

      Here is a video on their destruction in Paris:

        I feel ill. So it is widespread now that people can riot on the sole basis of “blaming the jews”. Yes, people will ask about how Paris made them illegal to protest; I just ask them what came first. “This” madness

    There’s a silver lining in almost every cloud.

    Well that must have been one doozy of a Youtube video besmirching the prophet Mohammed.

    There are 1.6 billion muslims in the world so a few thousand won’t really change too much. They will still strive number wise. Its sad that all people just can’t get on with one another.

    It’s perfectly natural for Muslims to kill. It’s not that for Jews.

      Maybe that’s the problem.

    You know, it occurs to me that we really are total idiots.

    More Muslims killed in 2 days in Syria, and we are trying to convince everyone that’s the case? Why?

    Wouldn’t it be better for our enemies to think of us as drooling bloodthirsty psychopaths with heavy armaments just waiting to unleash all our hatred and evil on them? The whole reason we are in this mess is because our enemies have concluded, correctly, that we don’t have the stomach for a fight. A lot of good men (40 as of now) have given their lives for this tactical idiocy.

    We try to convince anyone who will listen that we are kindly friendly Boy Scouts. We are fools.

    sweet! go assad go! lol

      I hope they all kill each other.

    Regardless of what flag it is under, war is war. Blood is blood… Hey, ya gotta love this Twenty Worst Century, doncha? Hard to think we need to invent a place called hell.

    journalism would show the breakdown. I found that 2000 total were
    killed in Syria in the past 10 days, 1000 of that were government-allied
    militiamen and the other 1000 were civilians and opposition fighters.
    If half of that were civilians, and my guess its less given the number
    of government allies dead, then that would be 50 civilians/day or 100 in
    2 days.

    To comment on this article I think death is death, murder is murder, rape is rape, atrocity is atrocity. How much of it is occurring, where its happening, and who’s doing it, doesn’t change what it is and whether or not its morally/ethically acceptable. However, media channels always focus on the most recent and whats happening now aka “breaking news”. Syria was breaking news in 2011 and did flood televised reports, but its now literally “old news” and has lost much needed attention. Its sad, but true. Finally, Syrian population is around 22 million with civil unrest literally flooding it from south to north and east to west. The population in Gaza is 1.8 million and with very specific mostly forewarned attacks.; The greater the population the greater the loss, and given that Syria’s population is 20 times that of Gaza’s population the number above does not surprise me. It is very sad what is occurring everywhere in the world where death happens. Peace shouldn’t come at the cost of lives, but unfortunately it does.
