Hamas starts a war, it ensures that children are killed and, woe and behold, the international media eagerly do Hamas’s bidding by reporting how the Jews are again killing children.
But what about the tens of thousands of children who have been killed in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan?
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, more than 22,000 children have been killed in Syria’s civil war.
The number of children killed in Afghanistan is estimated at more than 26,000.
And estimates of the number of civilian deaths in Iraq range from the tens to the hundreds of thousands.
The international media has given hundreds of times more coverage to dozens of children accidentally killed in Gaza than to tens of thousands of Arab children killed elsewhere.
Do the international media think that the life of an Arab child is worthless unless the child is accidentally killed by a Jew?
Surely thousands of children have been killed by Western troops (‘collateral damage’) in fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Where is the media bandwagon? Where are the demonstrations?
