    ...to the BUS LOAD of German tourists who were slaughtered by Islamists outside of a Cairo museum during the 1990s? Probably not nearly as much as Marwa El-Sherbini, the Egyptian woman who was brutally murdered in an obvious hate crime. By the way, the man who stabbed her was an ethnic Russian immigrant, not a German. And he's being prosecuted. Unlike the killer of Neda, who's probably being praised and promoted within the ranks of the Basij. As for the Western media ignoring the case, that's bullcrap. It is true that the stolen Iranian election has received more coverage, but is that so shocking? Neda was simply a symbol of multiple deaths. Unlike the El-Sherbini murder, which is a relatively isolated incident. Lastly, foreign tourists are assaulted in the Arab world, frequently. Let's not pretend otherwise. And such cases almost never elicit a single word in Western papers or websites.
