After attacks on Muslims, many ask: where is the outpouring?

One of the primary goals of the Islamic State and similar terrorists is to divide Sunni Muslims from the rest of the world. After recent terrorist attacks in Istanbul, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia and Baghdad — attacks that killed more than 250 people — survivors are wondering why there is no outpouring of support as there was for victims of the Paris, Orlando and Brussels attacks.

Facebook didn’t activate its Safety Check feature after the attacks in the Middle East as it did after the Paris, Brussels and Orlando attacks.Facebook users are not posting flags of Turkey, Bangladesh and Iraq.

‘“Why isn’t #PrayForIraq trending?” Razan Hasan of Baghdad posted on Twitter. “Oh yeah no one cares about us,”’ reported Anne Barnard in the New York Times.
