America, Read the Warning Labels!

Here in Israel, the past few days have seen a troubling trend in terror attacks:  Assailants going into public areas, pulling knives, and stabbing, sometimes fatally, people who have gone out into public places.  Much appreciation is now extended to all of you who have expressed concern for my well-being and that of my family.

Are we concerned for our safety?  Yes, obviously we are.  How has this impacted our normal routines?  The answer is that we are still following our normal routines.  G-d gave this land to the Jewish people, and we must behave as though it is indeed ours.

When I was in Tel Aviv this morning, all normal routines seemed to be operative (though there was heightened discussion regarding the situation).  More security guards are to be seen in buildings and public places, and more soldiers are to be seen visibly carrying their weapons in public areas.  And, if an old friend of ours is any indication, more people who are licensed to carry firearms are carrying them when they go out.

My wife and I are here for what likely will be an extended period.  And yes, we are concerned about our safety here; but we are even more concerned about what public safety will be when we return to the USA.  I hope that my fears prove unfounded, but it does not take a long stretch of the imagination to envision similar shtick being pulled in the USA.  Nor need such bloody tactics be necessarily confined to America's increasing Muslim population; it is quite possible that deadly carnage from knife-wielders in public crowds may turn into a color-based thing;  if so, then there is little room for doubt as to how the professional oddsmakers will paint which boxes which colors.

America, don't you see the implications?  You have already had ample warnings!  You have been ill-stanced to deny the possibilities ever since September 12, 2011 came around.  As the U.S. Constitution becomes increasingly mutilated, so will the governmental functions, including the function of prosecuting violent criminals.  Once that gets significantly underway, it will be a signal to the domestic terrorists and their inciters and enablers to start with the stabbings.

You in America can no longer say that you have not been warned!
