Does Thinking This Make Me A Bad Person?

I look at the stories of the ongoing genocide of Christians in the Middle East buried beneath mountains of stories about alleged papal interest in the World Cup, Lebron James's endorsement deals/free agent status, Rosie O'Donnell's return to television, etc., and I frequently think, "At least there are still some Jews in Europe, despite the world's horrendous delay in responding to the slaughter there. Middle East Christians won't even get the benefit of a delayed response."

I've been told this makes me a bad person because it "minimizes the Holocaust" or some such, but I can't understand how. Isn't an uninterrupted, successful genocide worse than one that is interrupted and thwarted?
