Beirut bombings

By Joe Martino | Collective Evolution

We’ve all heard the news by now of the terror attacks that took place in Paris on Friday, November the 13th. It’s events like these which underscore both the dark side and the bright side of humanity, as many stand to support their brethren around the world. By now, many have also begun to question what is taking place, demanding the full story in the face of intense media coverage of the event.
What many may not know is that another terror attack took place, just one day prior to that in Paris, which got very little to no media attention whatsoever. The attack killed 43 people and wounded 239, and if it weren’t for the heroic sacrifice of Adel Termos (pictured below), hundreds more could have been killed or injured.

ISIS suicide bombers detonated themselves in the southern part of Beirut on Thursday, November 12th. Journalist Tamara Quiblawi describes the aftermath to CNN: “There’s a lot of shattered glass on the street, a lot of blood. . . . And it’s really just a scene of chaos and carnage.”

“He tackled him to the ground, causing the second suicide bomber to detonate,” says Beirut Elie Fares. “There are many many families, hundreds of families probably, who owe their completeness to his sacrifice.

Very Little Coverage

It would not be surprising if you were unaware of this event. The media did not give it anywhere near as much attention as the France attacks received, and it makes you wonder why.

Indian blogger Karuna Ezara Parikh responded to this with a poem that has since gone viral:

It’s not Paris we should pray for. It is the world.

It is a world in which Beirut, reeling from bombings two days before Paris,

is not covered in the press.

A world in which a bomb goes off

at a funeral in Baghdad,

and not one person’s status update says “Baghdad”,

because not one white person died in that fire. . . .

    Some pretty sorry reporting coming from you guys lately.I have much better things to do.

    •' Jeremiah Jennings says:

      It all had a common thread though, anti-white people, and it’s coming from a site that is purporting to be about bringing people together. I know that the apologists and the white guilt types will justify it to themselves, but those that try to love all can see right through it as the hate-mongering that it really is. It does this site a disservice and chases away people it could be helping.

    Watch Gearoid O’Colmain expose the truth on RT about the terrorist attacks in Paris, who created ISIS, the fake war on terror, who benefited from the attacks, and much more. Pay close attention to this mind-blowing, 10-minute report because you won’t ever hear this info on Corporate News.

    Refreshing to finally see an intelligent independent political truth sayer on a mainstream news show articulately and intelligently explaining in detail who actually is responsible for the terrorism around the world

    This will help you to join up the dots

    Ken O’Keefe

    Whoever “ISIS” actually is……

  6.' Shawna Aunti says:

    Im disappointed in this misleading headline. There was media coverage of the Beirut bombings – i heard lot of news stories – and I dont watch television.
    Is your intention to mislead people?
    Unfortunately, it seems little is reported in North American media, when victims aren’t of European heritage.
    It saddens me that you appear to have joined the rumour mongering.

    May be i think it is deliberate…something to do with the govt thinking…they dont want to show unnecessary things…planning for some great news i think…may be hiding information so that the investigation doesnt suffer…afterall its more important n good for the mankind to do what is needed than just to circulate stories for gossips

  11.' Alex Crofford says:

    It happens all the time…many things aren’t talked about and others highlighted. People are more interested in Paris then some other dirt country that they have no interest in visiting and falling in love at. Or buying coffee mugs that has the name on it. Geo politics and media coverage has always been a strategy of spin and concealment…nothing new.

  12.' Rick Hopper says:

    You mean the place where they bombed the US marines.The place that sends bombers to other countries.Well you are right…No one gives a fuck about them.Just as they dont about anyone.

    Come on everybody, of course the media only lets us know what they want us to

  19.' Justin Banner says:

    The Media only reports on stuff that it’s owners can use, within two Days both the U.S and France were Dropping Bombs. Both Hillary and Obama have accidentally admitted that the U.S has supported ISIS, They gave aide to the Rebels, then those rebels joined ISIS, they didn’t have the intelligence to understand who they were Dealing with, they are all radical Muslim factions.

  20.' Donna DiBianco says:

    And this is why I took down the French flag on my profile..

  21.' Paul Alirangues says:

    No, the media did not ignore it, people did. I saw it the minute it happened

  22.' Gyula Csoka says:


  23.' Vickie Duke Allen says:

    The media ignores all such atrocities, because they are owned by rich, white elitists. They only care if the country has a commodity or money their companies can exploit.

  25.' Dave Norwoods says:

    The world is hyjacked by demonic bloodlines of evil. Get rid of money and contribute to mankind then we will thrive. Here is a song called Ubuntu that’s a poetic deep message about this

  26.' Irene Tomazos says:

    Question is: what is humanity going to do about it?

  27.' Robert Smith says:

    without a doubt !

  28.' Jeffery Price says:

    I find the continued characterization of the mainstream media as some grand conspiracy to be comical. The reason the attacks in Beirut weren’t widely reported is the same reason that the media doesn’t report murders in gang infested areas of Los Angeles. It’s because it happens every day and isn’t unusual enough to sell newspapers or tv ad time.

  29.' Joseph Paul Fox says:

    Stop watching TV…………listen to radio

  30.' Trudii Talbot says:

    BBC and Al Jazeera reported it all day!

  31.' Heather Lee says:

    I care about all innocent people specially children! Weather christian,muslim,or Jew! Shame on this generation! The heartless self loving generation!
