Where is the world outrage toward ISIS?

As missiles come raining down upon civilians and the death toll grows at alarming rates, bodies are retrieved by brave first responders who must bring these victims back for their proper religious burials as dictated by their Muslim faith. The silence in the Middle East as well as in Europe is deafening.

Why? Perhaps because ISIS doesn’t wear Stars of David around their necks!

It seems it’s quite normal and acceptable that the Muslim world as well as our European allies become irate only when Israel reacts militarily but stands by quietly as fellow Muslims and Christians are beheaded by the brutal machinations of this new terrorist group. Palestinians are the cannon fodder for the entire Middle East. But Israel is the pinata for the Jew haters all around the world. The term “disproportionate “ casualties literally means the Jews of Israel should suffer higher rates of death and destruction if they want the world’s sympathy.

It’s a norm that dates back quite a while. Israelis build bomb shelters to protect their people. Hamas builds tunnels to protect their weapons.

Where is the outrage for this behavior? It’s nowhere to be found. The silence again is deafening.
