The Sauds, Obama, and The Press

A fly-by comparo.

...As one Middle East expert put it to me: “Jews disturbing the Dome of the Rock fits into an anti-Western narrative, so Muslims can cope with that. The Saudi destruction of Mecca doesn’t fit into that narrative, and so there’s virtual silence.” Something worth bearing in mind, perhaps, when you wonder why the murder of Muslims by Muslims in Darfur or Syria provokes only limited outrage in the Islamic world....

From Lewis Carroll:

"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master -- that's all."

The Press's Master(s) have the money and the threats.  That's all.
