Paleoconservative writer Srdja Trifkovic criticized media coverage of the New Zealand Christchurch shooting on Friday and noted the massive disparity with how Christians are treated living in majority Muslim countries versus how Muslims are treated in majority Christian countries.
From Chronicles Magazine:
[T]here will be no attempt to place today’s killings “in perspective,” as is invariably the case after Muslim terrorists strike Western targets—in Nice, Paris, Berlin etc.—killing hundreds of people. That “perspective” should include the fact that some 30 million Muslims reside in the Western world today (many more on their own reckoning), which makes the probability of any one of them falling victim to a deplorable attack in any given year roughly one in ten million.
These odds may be higher than being eaten by a great white shark, but they compare rather favorably with the probability of a Frenchman being killed by a Muslim fanatic. Be patient, dear reader; let us recoup with precision, lest we be accused of inflammatory rhetoric:
7-9 January 2015: Charlie Hebdo attacks kill 22 people.
26 June 2015: In Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, a Muslim decapitated a Frenchman and rammed a van into cylinders at a gas factory trying to start an explosion.
13-14 November 2015: The horrendous Paris attacks killed 137 people in the single deadliest terrorist outrage in French history
13 June 2016: At Magnanville, a policeman and his wife were murdered by a jihadist.
14 July 2016: A truck was driven into crowds celebrating Bastille Day in Nice. The driver, Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, killed 86 people.
26 July 2016: In Normandy two jihadists attacked a church during mass, killing an 86-year-old priest.
1 October 2017: A Muslim stabbed to death two young women at a Marseille train station. Before he was shot dead he shouted Allahu Akbar.
