Jews Who Spit Are News, Egyptians Who Kill Are Not

Let’s get this straight.

Several Coptic Christians are murdered in Egypt on Jan. 7, 2010. As of 5 p.m. Jan. 11, 2010, the story is left unmentioned on National Catholic Reporter’s website.

NCRonline, does however, cover a Jewish statement condemning orthodox Jews for spitting on Christians in Jerusalem. The statement was issued on Dec. 30, 2009 and six days later, it's covered by the NCR.

Yes, spitting on people is DISGUSTING. Yech! And yes, it is worthy of coverage.

But how long will it take for NCR to acknowledge that Coptic Christians were murdered, gunned down in a drive by shooting as they come out of a Christmas midnight mass?

And just look at the comments section of the “spitting? story. It’s a veritable cesspool of anti-Israel, and in some instances, anti-Jewish rhetoric.

To his credit, Pope Benedict did call on political and religious authorities to protect the lives of Christians. He did not say anything specific as to why such a statement was necessary, but Reuters connected the dots for its readers, reporting that it was an “apparent reference to recent attacks on Coptic Christians in Egypt.?
