The Attacks In Paris Were Tragic, But Why Does Nobody Seem To Care About The Muslims Who Died In The Siege Of Antioch In 1098?

Oxford University – “The Siege of Antioch, a pivotal battle and defining moment of the first crusade, does not seem to be getting any media attention in the wake of the horrific attacks in Paris,” said professor of History at Oxford University, Dr. Henry Kensington. “Is it because many of the victims in the Siege were Muslim? It is not for me to say, but we have seen this pattern in the news before.” The Siege of Antioch lasted from October 21, 1097, to June 2, 1098. During the siege, countless Muslim lives were lost, but many feel this event has been overshadowed by the Western media’s coverage of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
