"They planned it as if it was in Arizona, like the Phoenix lightrail."Did I give Arizona an "eyin haraa," evil eye, like a jinx? The Tucson, AZ terror attacker murdered a little girl who was davka born on 9-11, the date of America's largest terrorist attack. If that had been the plot of a book, nobody would have accepted it. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, whose Jewishness is not accepted by mainstream Torah Judaism, may have been targeted because of her Jewish identity. There's no proof that Jared Loughner shot her for that reason, mainly because he has not been cooperating with the authorities and hasn't revealed his motivation. Everything so far is guess-work.
I guess Arizona isn't all that safe. There's deadly hatred all over.
Is this connected to George Friedman's theories, predictions about the next decade?
It certainly looks like things are getting more dangerous all over the world. The Arabs, the Muslims aren't afraid. They are enthusiastic and aren't restricted by PC norms and morality.
If we're going to defeat terrorism of all stripes, we must open our eyes and take off the gloves. They won't be destroyed by Lala Left sweetness. They consider their enemies weak jokes and they're right about it. We must fight force with force.
