Compassion Fatigue

Compassion Fatigue

By Mazin Qumsiyeh
September 15, 2015

That old term, "Compassion Fatigue" came to my mind in the last
few weeks.

I was thinking on how humanity could descend into such barbarity
around the world.

How could African migrants risk their lives to leave countries
wrecked psychologically and economically by colonial Europeans,
only to arrive in the same continent that subjugated them?

How could Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslims be slaughtered in
the thousands by the majority Buddhists, yet these surviving
Muslims end up starving and dying in boats because they are
rejected by nearby countries with Muslim majorities, such as

How could relatives of Jewish holocaust survivors engage in racism
and the ethnic cleansing of native Palestinians while the relatives
of Armenian holocaust survivors lead amazingly rich and productive

How could a very wealthy country like, “Saudi Arabia” (the quotes
are necessary because it is an imposed name for a country stolen
by the Saud Family) spend billions to support the US/Israeli agenda
of destruction and mayhem in countries like Yemen and Syria?

How could a pilot who claims to be Muslim drop bombs on Muslim

How could a powerful and rich country like the USA be so occupied
by the Zionist lobby that they send their, “Police” to train in racism
and oppression in Apartheid Israel and then go back to kill blacks in
American cities?

How does the world tolerate the continued siege upon Gaza and
its starving and dying population and the largest open air prison
with 1.7 million inmates whose only crime is being born in Palestine?

How could the world stand by and let Egypt execute political
dissidents or imprison them for decades simply because they
demanded freedom from the entrenched military dictatorship
funded by US taxpayers?

So did humans develop compassion fatigue?

Does this possibility bode ill for our future as a species?
