True colours: Istanbul terror attack

I’m going to get in here before people start hashtagging ‪#‎PrayForIstanbul‬ or the like. It’s deeply saddening that it only resonates to people when places like Paris or Brussels are attacked. Why the double standard? 
Are places like Ankara not important enough? Are the daily attacks in Syria and Gaza not cool enough to talk about?
I’m sure that most people haven’t even heard about what happened in Istanbul yet, so before hashtagging and changing your DPs to flag colours becomes the new trend, please inform yourselves.
