Hours ago, three Muslims college Student have been shot dead “execution-style” by a man in the USA. The newspapers in US didn’t give any attention to this or very little. I learned the story like many, on Twitter. Here is a picture of them.

A lot of people on Twitter like the profile @WeTeachlifeSir_ have condemned the US newspapers of no coverage, not outrage about this hate murder.

As you can see on those pictures, no story about the victims, no words. It seems the “People” news are more important than this.
Is this a double-standard from those newspapers ?
Let’s imagine another scenario ; one when a so-called Muslim extremist kills three young innocent white persons. Do you really imagine that no news will break out the minute it happens ? Do you really think that all of the media outlets will shut up about this for so long ? I condemn those who think and show that the blood of three innocent Muslims killed cowardly is lighter than the blood of three innocent Christians killed by a so called “Islamists”. I’m not making this about religion, but there is a clear fact out here : those murders are not BREAKING newsworthy because the killer is not a “terrorist”.
But is he not a terrorist ?
Twitter (again) showed who really was this killer, the images he posted on Facebook before the executions or even his wish list on Amazon that contained scopes of snipers and camouflage outfits. His name is Craig Hist and he will be of course in the eyes of the “good” Media : a single lone wolf or a “deranged person”. He will never be called out a terrorist… because he’s white.
Here are some of his views exposed on his Facebook Personal Page.

It is clear that Craig Hist is full of prejudice and hate, he is an atheist who believe he has the right to retaliate and insult religion it if he’s been insulted. Of course he means by religion here Islam.
I wonder how Craig Hist was insulted from those three Muslims. Was it the Hijab ? Was it the fact that they were peaceful Muslims and he didn’t like it ? Here’s the twitter profile of one of the victims, Deah Barakat. Did Craig Hist take a look at this? Did he see the multiple retweets of funny vines ? The posts about his passion for American football ? Maybe he got insulted because of Barakat cover picture showing al Quds Mosque? Or did he even see that Barakat called for donation for Syrian refugees ? How dangerous and insulting is Barakat !
Remember Bill Maher lame claim that Islam is a violent religion ? Should we say that Atheism is a violent non-religion ? No we will not. Why ? First, violence has no religion (the irony) and two, we actually have brains.
What’s terrorism ?
When you kill innocent Muslims because you are an Islamophobe. It is terrorism.
