We Are All Under Attack

On Sundays, I am always a little behind on the weekend news due to my observance of the Jewish Sabbath, which lasts from Friday night until Saturday night.

For the Jews of Turkey, their Sabbath observance had more dire ramifications.

I have so much anger, despair, sadness, frustration as a result of attacks like this, that it actually inhibits my ability to write about them. But I will try nonetheless…

This attack demonstrates to me a number of things:

1. No Jew around the world is safe. We are all targets because we are Jews. Even the secular Jewish appeasers of terrorism, who actually support the PLO Arabs and their ilk, are targets. Mind you, since they probably do not go to synagogue often, they are at less risk.

2. The Muslims, who are constantly asking for sensitivity towards their holy days and periods (such as Ramadan) display no such sensitivity towards our holy days. Rather, they exploit them as an opportunity to kill and maim as many Jews as possible. Remember the Passover massacre in Netanya? How about the terrorism over Rosh Hashana? And the list goes on.

3. The Arab states, if not explicitly encouraging these attacks, at the very least do not condemn them. I remember seeing on either the Fox or CNN news ticker last night that the Arab league Secretary-General stated something like “These attacks are the fault of Israeli terrorism.” Disgusting.

I am sure I will have more to write on this in the coming days. But for now, I will continue to seethe.
