How many people who aren’t news junkies know that Madrid Airport was bombed on Saturday? Relatively few I would venture, and that’s because major western governments and their media mouthpieces don’t hype terror unless Muslims are behind it.

Now imagine if “Al-Qaeda” bombed Heathrow or LAX. You’d never hear the end of it, the news would be on it 24/7 and entering an airport would be akin to checking into a concentration camp. And yet Saturday’s blast was greeted by little more than bylines and muted dismissals by the mainstream media.
