Adorable but Deadly!

One of the world’s most bizarre animals is called the Hispaniolan Solenodon.

It looks a little bit like an overgrown shrew – it’s quite big, has a long thin snout and can attack passing insects with its deadly poisonous bite!

This nocturnal animal can only be found in two countries of the world: the Dominican Republic and Haiti.

Researchers say more needs to be done to protect these creatures as they are under threat from deforestation and hunters.

I can understand Paris, because they haven't had attacks like that before. But the Pulse shooting is a common event in our country, even if it was the largest thus far. Now with the same event occurring in Turkey, I can only think of two reasons why the Instanbul event isn't getting enough reception: 1. It's Ramadan 2. It didn't involve homophobia Seeing as Radical Islamic Terror became huge during Ramadan after the Orlando Shooting, I'm betting on #2. We can't identify the Istanbul event with a clear agenda, not can we identify with Istanbul.

If you are literally speaking well actually there are websites which offer a variation of filters for different flags across the world; I can upload one just to show you. On the other hand, I assume you mean that despite all these recent events, the event in Turkey had no supportive filter whatsoever; there was pray for Paris and Orlando but not much variation/support for Turkey then I understand where you are coming from because I am questioning this too.

If a volley of rainbow profile pictures is how we react when 49 people die in Florida, why do we do nothing when 44 people die in Istanbul? Why is there no Turkish flag filter to edit my pictures with?
