You enter your favorite pizza parlor with your family on an early Saturday night. The place is packed with families, with teens, with people. Wall to wall with a wait to be seated. Suddenly a person enters the building, goes to the middle of the place and detonates a bomb. The shrapnel rips through your body. The last thing you see is your children shredded to bits. This is not fiction. It happened here.Imagine this:
You leave your home to go to work, get on the bus and this happens:Imagine this:
It happened here.
You are attending a religious function with your family. A person walks in, detonates a bomb. You and your family are killed.This is reality in Israel. Not the big attacks as we experienced on 9/11, but the small single person attacks on a single, smaller target. You never know when it will happen, where it will happen, if you or your loved ones will be involved, injured, killed. When it is discovered that the Muslim community is behind these actions, the world insists that you do nothing to stop these attacks, in fact you have to import more terrorists into your country. You have to surrender to everything the terrorists demand. If you don't expect more attacks, in any city, at any time.
It happened here.
You set up metal detectors and security guards at the entrances of every supermarket, shopping mall, restaurant. You have armed guards outside every school, every hospital. Special precautions are taken with bulldozers and backhoes. And still there is more.
The terror escalates to warfare when terrorists start firing rockets into the United States from Mexico. Cities and towns on the border have been struck with these "homemade" rockets. The world tells the US to ignore them. The rockets aren't powerful and do very little damage. Every day, every night the nation is under attack. You are told that the rockets will stop when you give into the terrorists demands. Obama gives in.
The US Constitution is removed and Shar'ia Law and Islam reigns.
This is the new reality that we could be living under.
9/11 wasn't a true terror attack. It was an act of war like Pearl Harbor was. The Fort Hood Massacre, the Arkansas Military Attack, the Times Square Bomber, and the rest of the failed attacks are the harbinger of things to come.
There will come a time in the near future when we will experience terror on the scale that Israel has. The only hope we can have as a nation is that we have a leader who will fight back and not surrender.
