The head that holds the eye

The politicians and journalists are making a fuss about terrorism. So much space and time has been devoted to terrorist incidents in Paris and so little time to murders and killings in the Middle east. A Muslim would be excused for thinking that the blood of a European is much more valuable than the blood of an Arab, or that the life of one white person is worth more than the life on one latte coloured person. It is claimed that an eye for an eye will make us all blind, but the odds on eye taking varies according to the hue and religion of the head that holds the eye.
