For me it is proof how little we as a community care about our own.

That's still not an argument, it's repeated assertion. I remain unconvinced.

I see 158 "support" votes and 95 "opposes." I don't know how you define "care about our own," but I think the 158 in the majority care prima facie. Of the 95 who opposed, here are just a few quotes which I believe reflect compassion for Bassel:

"Per NoW <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_comment/Neutrality_of_Wikipedia> and as someone already raising awareness on the subject /outside of Wikipedia"
"/ I understand the importance and urgency of this issue"
"A banner on Wikipedia will in no way help Bassel in his current situation."
"Bassel has all my sympathy, for seemingly being a like-minded individual, possibly facing death on the hands of a murderous, tyrannical regime."


To my eyes, a strong majority care. You disagree, but I still have not seen reasons behind your disagreement.
