More Terrorism Blindness

Backspin observes that a "world terrorism map" in a German newspaper--similar to the one in the Brit cage-liner The Sun -- omits terrorism in Israel. I note that it also omits Islamic terrorism in Kashmir.

Again, the message is that Islamic/Arab terrorism is considered acceptable when used as part of an ongoing political dispute. That and the usual anti-Semitism and racism is more than sufficient to make Germans, Brits and other Europeans blind to terrorism when the victims are Jews and Hindus.

If the Park Hotel massacre took place among Aussie vacationers in Bali, and if Parliament House attack took place in Rome and not New Delhi, you can bet it would be considered "terrorism"
