Imagine living on a street in a British town or city where you never knew which of your neighbours would suddenly turn violent. Where your neighbours on either side spoke words of peace to you but threw dogshit over your fence when your back was turned. Imagine that you were in a situation where these neighbours threatened you on buses, on trains, at family celebrations or at work. This is what Israelis have had to put up with for the last 66 years. The Israelis have the misfortune to have the worlds worst neighbours, the Arabs.
If you think that having a dole bludging drunk who plays Celine Dion at full volume at 2am as a neighbour is bad then count yourself lucky that at least they are trying not to self explode and kill you as well.
The Israelis have to be on constant guard against self exploding Arabs whose only desire is to kill as many Jewish Israelis as possible. Arab violence has already cleansed much of Yehuda and Shomron (what Lefties call the Occupied West Bank) of its minority Christian population and the violent Arabs show no sign of giving up their desire of wanting to drive the Jews into the sea.
Every Olive-branch handed to the Arabs has been burned, every peace initiative has been corrupted. The Arabs were offered their own nation in 1948 which they refused, preferring war instead of peace.
There is always the potential for a terrorist tragedy in Israel and the story today is of a tragedy that was averted by the Israeli Defence Forces without any loss of life.
The Israeli news source Arutz Sheva said:
The terrorist raised suspicions by wearing a large coat in the hot summer weather. After security forces called on him to take off his coat and be checked, the man refused and proceeded to lay on the floor, reports Channel 10.
When he finally removed his coat, he was found to be wearing a belt of explosives. A bomb disposal squad was called to the area to dismantle the explosives.
The area was closed to car traffic by police following the incident, which caused no injuries or damage.
“This is a serious rise in intensity in the attempt of the Palestinians to harm innocent civilians,” said Gershon Messika, head of the Samaria RegionalCouncil. “It’s clear the Palestinians aren’t for peace. The time has come for the Israeli government to recognize that, and rebuke whoever dares say that Israel is to blame for the peace talk failure.”
The location of the planned terror attack in Tapuach Junction is the same as amarch held on Jerusalem Day this Wednesday, marking a year to the murder of terror victim Evyatar Borovsky Hy”d. Friends and family marched the site, where he was stabbed to death by an Arab terrorist a year ago, to “Evyatar Outpost,” a community established in his honor nearby.
Tapuach Junction has apparently become a target of terrorists, as in mid-April police officers foiled another stabbing attack. Police noticed an Arab man acting in a suspicious manner. Upon investigation, the officers found a knife in his pocket.
An initial investigation revealed that the man intended to stab an IDF soldier at the junction.”

This is what the Israelis put up with every day. If you were an Israeli would you blame your government for putting up a separation wall to restrict the movement of the various Islamic savages whose only desire is to kill Jews? I wouldn’t criticise or blame my government for doing this, as it is plain to see that restricting the movement of so called ‘Palestinians’ is the most effective non-lethal way of curtailing Arab violence.
So the next time you hear some Lefty whining on about ‘apartheid state’ or ‘apartheid wall’ or any of the other stock phrases that they trot out regarding Israel, think of what the Israelis have to contend with. When I was last in Israel I was initially surprised that I felt safer on a bus in Tel Aviv than I did on a bus in North London, but I was very aware that the main reason I could feel safe on a Tel Aviv bus was because of the constant vigilance of the Israeli Defence Forces, and the fact that every Israeli has to use their eyes and ears to spot potential trouble.
The Israelis tolerate much that those in other countries would regard as intolerable and the fact that Israel deals with the naked lethal hatred of the Arabs in a mostly humane way should be celebrated and not condemned.
