Arab casualties: Media don't care unless Jews can be blamed

While the world media obsess over “disproportionate” casualties in the Hamas-Israel conflict, far greater numbers of Arabs are being slaughtered in Syria. Raheem Kassan write in Breitbart London:

From reading the international and national news you would probably never have known that last Thursday and Friday alone, over 700 people were killed in Syria at the hands of jihadists and pro-Assad forces. Muslim on Muslim, Arab on Arab, human on human, whatever you like to think of it as - Western media is doing an awful job of reporting these abhorrent incidences (snip)

The Asharq al Awsat newspaper reported on Sunday: 

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. He contrasted the violence to the gas attack in the Ghouta region close to Damascus last year, which he said killed around 500 people.

The UK-based SOHR tracks casualties on both sides of the Syrian conflict by collating reports from a network of observers on the ground in the country.

The final toll was announced after the SOHR reported that 270 people had been killed in fighting between pro-Syrian government forces and militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), when the latter seized the Shaar gas field east of the city of Homs on Friday.

And yet our radios, televisions, and streets are filled with people seekings to condemn and deplore Israel and sometimes even 'the Jews'.

First One Throughpoints out that this is not a new phenomenon in . People who apply different standards to Jews than to others are by definition anti-Semites. And the world’s media and leftists consistently blame Israel for the deaths of Muslims, yet by his calculations, 90% of Muslim casualties in wars are at the hands of other Muslims. He lists the major conflicts that have cost Muslim lives:
