So true.

A man has shared a Facebook post calling for empathy with the victims of a suicide bomb attack in the Turkish capital of Ankara that killed at least 34 people and wounded 125.

James Taylor, who lives in Ankara, encouraged readers to imagine the attacks happened where they live.

"[It] is the equivalent of a bomb going off outside Debenhams on the Drapery in Northampton, or on New street in Birmingham, or Piccadilly Circus in London," he wrote.

"Can you imagine being there? Can you imagine the place you walk past every day, the bus stops you use, the roads you cross being obliterated."

"It is very easy to look at terror attacks that happen in London, in New York, in Paris and feel pain and sadness for those victims, so why is it not the same for Ankara?

"Is it because you just don't realise that Ankara is no different from any of these cities?"

First,They see who have been killed. Perhaps Muslims' blood has no importance in their eyes

Hypocrisy. Supremacism.

Deny it all you want, I think people favour others based on what they are. If it is paris, it goes viral, but if it is in Africa, Nigeria etc. Nothing.

They want the 'thrill' they want the attention of people. They don't care about people in Africa, or Syria getting bombed. Yet when it is their own people, it goes viral. If there is a Muslim that killed another non muslim, it goes viral. But if it is some old Muslim, getting killed by drunk people, nothing.

They only want to publish what gets people's attention.

Deny it all you want, people only get touched when they see a risk for themselves, or Paris, USA, russia etc. But if it is someone in Africa, they shrug it off as normal. That is life, I guess.

I was in the exact point of the bombing two weeks ago.

Terror is a humanity crime. If you are ok with the terror in other countries that same terror finds you in your house one day.

Of course bombing innocent people is haram. Suicide is also haram. Everything is haram related to terror.
