So people are dying in the Middle East, but the global media do not give a shit about Arabs unless we are involved in any “terrorist” related news. Two days ago a terrorist attack occurred on a busy shopping mall in Baghdad, that ended up killing at least 200 innocent people, followed by terrorist attacks today in Saudi Arabia. I don’t see the Iraqi/Saudi flag all over the social media, I don’t see the “pray for <insert a white country here> “? 

If the world doesn’t look at us and see us as the humans we are, then fuck you all

I feel sick. Seriously, 3 attacks in Saudi Arabia? On one of the last nights in Ramadhan, the holiest of Islamic months, just days before Eid? And one of those blasts was by the Prophet’s mosque in Madina..the second holiest place in Islam???
