The media focus: What Syrian civilian deaths?

Couldn’t find this on my Middle East Yahoo news feed:

DAMASCUS, Nov. 17 (Xinhua) — A flare-up of violence hit the Syrian capital of Damascus on Saturday, as the ongoing conflict has engulfed most parts of the country and given no sign of backing down.

At least nine people were killed and more than 23 injured when a mortar shell fired by armed men struck a communal bus in the Jaramana suburb of Damascus Saturday evening, local media said.

There aren’t any heart-wrenching pictures of dead children being carried out of the rubble, the way there are of the strikes in Gaza.

There also aren’t pictures of Israeli children wounded by Palestinian rocket fire racing around the world in AP, Reuters, and AFP news feeds. Because it’s just not news when Israeli children are wounded.

The double standard is atrocious.

    Can’t find pics of the Palestinian boy killed by a Hamas rocket intended for Israel, either.
