Also this The Listening Post's Salah Khadr reports on the murder of two Muslim women, but how only one of caught the Western media's attention.

Both were young Muslim women standing up for their right to free expression, whose murders caused outrage throughout the Arab and Muslim world.

Marwa el-Sherbini was a pregnant 32-year-old Egyptian pharmacist living in Dresden, Germany.

She was savagely stabbed to death in front of her husband and three-year-old son, in a court of law, by the man who she was prosecuting for making racist slurs against her.

The Listening Post trys to answer why only one of them has been turned into a martyr by the Western news media and the other virtually ignored.
