As news arrived yesterday of terror attacks in Paris that ultimately left
more than 120 people dead, US President Barack Obama characterized the
situation as “heartbreaking” and an assault “on all of humanity.”

But his presidential sympathy was conspicuously absent the previous day
when terror attacks in Beirut left more than 40 dead. Predictably, Western
media and social media were much less vocal about the slaughter in Lebanon.
