Terrorists calling themselves Muslims killed mostly other Muslims and some non Muslims in horrific attacks in Tunisia, France, Kuwait, Somalia and Kurdistan, all today. That is already extremely troubling.  But what is as concerning is world apathy towards terrorism.  These attacks have a combined number of victims greater than the Atocha attack in Spain of 2004.  There is close to 500 injured and over 200 dead.  But we are getting so used to terrorism that media doesn’t care as much.  Children, women, tourists, worshippers all dead and my news feeds mostly talk about Uber in France. Is this another normal day? Are we getting used to a world in which hundreds die in the hands of Islamic State every day?
