it’s SO disgusting that around 125 citizens in Iraq were killed this weekend while celebrating the end of their holy month of Ramadan and there was ZERO talk about it. Big news companies such as ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, etc. mentioned the devastating attacks like once? maybe twice? Hell, even celebrities didn’t even mention it. After the Paris attacks, numerous celebrities sent their condolences to Paris and some even changed their profile pics on social media to a pray for paris picture.
We all know why no one is mention the tragic events that occurred. Iraq being a Muslim country makes people see it in a negative light which is just soo ?????? People claim they’re not Islamophobic, yet when they are silent after something as horrific as this happens, their claims are hard to believe.
Don’t even say it’s not because Iraq is a Muslim that no ones expressing concern because I’m pretty sure if 125 Christians were killed on Easter weekend in a Western country, the news outlets would go crazy and people would be tweeting their condolences left and right. People would blame Muslims and call every single one of them terrorists (which isn’t true and here’s something: ISIS apparently claimed responsibility for the attacks in Iraq, so tell me again how ISIS only targets people who aren’t Muslim).
I am just so angry and disgusted at the media and at today’s society.
My heart goes out to Iraq, the families, and anyone else who has been affected by this tragedy.
