Your anniversary, our daily reality?

I wonder what the average Arab take on the media coverage of the London bombings would be? Would they think, perhaps, that London's day of horror and tragedy is no more than the average weekend on their soil? Would they wonder, maybe, why the London bombings can fill hours and hours of television time, and occupy reams and reams of newspaper, whilst 40 dead in Iraq (as long as the 40 dead comprises those of Arabic descent and not US soldiers!) might grab a solitary page two column, or a few uttered sentences from our devoted newscasters?
