Important, breaking news!

Two weeks ago, 230 girls were kidnapped from their school in Nigeria by Boko Haram fundamentalists. Boko Haram opposes education for girls. Unfortunately, they do believe in rape and murder. The girls have not yet been found and hope is fading fast.

But wait! A jetliner is still missing! We must saturate the media with as much information about every aspect of the search.

  2. Of course they consider themselves Muslims. But not all Muslims are fundamentalists. At least not like Boko Haram, who are among the most extreme.

  3. That wasn't my point. What I meant was that the Western news media shies away from reporting on Muslim terrorists because they don't want to be portrayed as Islamophobic.
