Not All Terror Victims are Equal

Why is Jewish blood considered cheaper than any other?

This post is not to belittle the recent terror attacks in Paris, nor say anything against those victims of ISIS Arab Muslim terror. But I'm sick and tired of the fact that we never see international identification and sympathy for Jewish and Israeli victims, like we see after other terror attacks. And I'm not only talking about responses from abroad. The Israeli media, politicians etc are no better.

This composite compares the headlines of the Paris attacks and the Arab terror attack on the Litman family just before Shabbat which resulted in the murder of the father and son.

  • "Terror attack in Israel: Father and son were killed in an attack near Otniel."
  • "Terror attack in France: About 150 were murdered..."

Why the difference in verbs? One is killed in an accident, and the Litman family was not in an accident. They were attacked--targeted by Arab terrorists. The resulting deaths were murder, plain and simple.

The world is responding to the Friday night ISIS terror attacks in Paris in all sorts of ways. 

Solidarity in symbols: Responding with light to Paris attacksJust an hour after a series of attacks rocked Paris on Friday night, the Eiffel Tower went dark in mourning.
But the response worldwide was to turn on the light: Three colors began appearing in solidarity: blue, white, and red. (Yahoo)


Here in Israel we've had to cope with many terror attacks with similarly proportionate deaths to the population, but in no case has the world shown much sympathy nor any identification, outside of Jewish communities. 

As I've said many times, I have no doubt that the fact that the world sympathizes with the Arab aka Palestinian sic terrorists who murder and terrorize us here in Israel contributes to the confidence and enthusiasm of the terrorists  who are terrorizing France and the rest of the world.
