When you Google ‘Guantanamo Bay – Wikipedia’, you’ll be very surprised about how long the entry is. It’s massive! It’s over 18,000 words long. That is much larger than the Wikipedia entries on President Assad’s killing of up to 40, 000 fellow Muslims in the Battle of Hama in 1982 (only 1,730 words). It's about four times larger than the entry of the Jordanian killings (‘Black September’) of up to 10,000 of Yasser Arafat’s PLO in 1970/1 (4,481 words). There's no specific entry on the recent killings (in the last 15 years) of up to 20, 000 Kurds - killed by the Turkish army and state. And no entry at all on the massive persecution, often the killings, of Christians today in many Muslim/Islamic countries.
