Another massacre in Syria and the liberal world remains silent

(Damascus) Have you noted that whenever Israel retaliates against those who launch terrorist attacks against it, the world's media always makes out that Israel is the aggressor and that the peace loving terrorists can only be victims? The thing is, I keep on getting told that Israel is committing mass genocide against the Palestinians, yet, contrary to basic mathematics, the population of Gaza and the West Bank continues to outgrow those of the Jews of Israel. The same warped logic applies when the most heavily armed military in the region decides to invade the tiny, densely populated area to the west (Gaza), while the left and Islamic world opine about how the world should do something about this latest outrage, the fact remains that the evil, child hating Jews can't shoot for toffee and after around 2 weeks of operations only mange to kill around 1,000 people each time. Surely that can't be right?

However, in Syria, genocide is a reality. The latest such mass killing having transpired in the Syrian city of Banias where over 60 bodies have been documented. Where are the outraged protesters on the streets of the world's capitals? Where are the protests outside the Syrian embassies? Where are the aid convoys to Syria (never mind the human shields)? Nope, nothing. Over 70,000 people have died in Syria since the anti-Assad upraising, and for some strange reason nobody seems to care. Yet when Israel takes out 1 terrorist, the shit hits the fan.
