where are the good people today

Just as a reminder that Israel is not the only point of conflict in the world, a small matter of 185 dead Nigerians on Sunday passed quietly without much media attention, and no public support or sympathy has been voiced.  Women and children were killed in the attack and survivors are staying in the bushes away from the village.  Houses and businesses have been damaged and livestock killed, making it difficult for villagers to return to normalcy.

No call from BDS’ers, no calls for sanctions, no calls for UN Security Council emergency sessions.  Where are the good people hiding now?  Why aren’t universities and unions calling for boycotts?

In this conflict between the Nigerian government forces and a local extremist group ( no need for more details of identity, as that will attract calls of bias ), more than 1,500 people have been killed since 2010.
