A terrible war is unfolding in a faraway land called Balochistan. Almost daily, bodies of young men, kidnapped and tortured to death by the Pakistan occupation army, end up in ditches. Others, still alive, are thrown from helicopters into the arms of the rough mountain terrain below.
Yet, not a single western journalist covers this ongoing, slow- motion genocide of the Baloch people.
Compare that to Gaza: Even a single Palestinian death at the hands of the IDF results in banner headlines.
But no one notices the daily massacres of the Baloch, not even the Palestinians.
A few years ago, a similar slaughter of Muslims by fellow Muslims dragged on for years before the world woke up to the Darfur genocide, where black-skinned Africans were decimated by the Arab Janjaweed of Sudan.
No flotilla sailed for Darfur, and none will likely leave harbour for Balochistan.
For Muslims, especially the victimhood-obsessed Islamists in the West, the lives of the Baloch and Darfuri are of less value to Allah than those of the Arab.
