We all know that men with beards in the middle east aren't so happy with what's going in the world If it was up to them they'd kill all non-Muslims in the name of Allah and they'd like seeing the Sharia laws enforced, worldwide. In order to reach these goals they try to scare people by threatening and sometimes even by doing terrorist attacks. Does it make you scared? Is your country at risk? Tell me what you want to say and let's discuss together!

I live in a country that has been very affected by terrorism in the past, but here the security is really high, so I am not scared. Also, I think being scared limits you, which is what terrorists want anyway, so I refuse to be scared because of that too. But it is scary to see how big the terror threat seems to be in Europe at the moment. I hope nothing happens, but if it does, the only "good" thing about it is that countries that have been affected usually start focusing more on security and are able to prevent attacks better in the future. This has really been the case where I live, and I am really thankful for that.

Not to be skeptical, but how did your country stop terrorism? Even for developed countries like USA, they can't stop terrorists. I've heard that there are two parts in Israel: one part unaffected by terrorism, the other with car bombings everyday. Is it true?

As you know it's impossible to prevent terrorism from happening. Terrorism can of course also happen from inside of your country on a small scale. Escalating hate and discrimination. That's more or less what's happening here. Wilders and 1.5 million of maybe 7 million voters are pissed off that Muslims are favored here by left-wingers despite 50% being registered criminals and their terrible behavior. The number is bigger for sure seeing how not all criminals are caught of course. In turn the beard guys in Arabic countries are mad and want countries like Holland, France, Germany to stop telling the truth... Crazy world...

Although I believe this can happen again, I do not live in constant fear. I am also not upset with the extra security measures taken at public government building and or airports as I feel that it is for our protection. Is our country at risk, absolutely - Terrorism is probably for the US at any time. We should never be too comfortable and always on the guard of the probability.

USA's power in the world has both downsides as well as advantages. If there's any increased chance of a terrorist attack they'd surely get the information from other countries if they haven't picked up the information themselves already, downside is the bigger risk of course. Let's hope there won't be a third world war... :(

terrorism is truly very frightening, not for just where you are but just seeing it on the news on tv is scary. and terrorist does not really choose a place sometimes out of the blue they just attack. my country is at risk for some far provinces there are terrorist that sometimes hurt innocent people with no reason at all. so i guess every country is at risk.

My country is not affected for those terrorisms, but it is on the news, and we think as it was us, it is not normal to the human being to see the other suffer and do not feel anything. Until now, Brazil never have been attacked yet, but we know that if there be a war, a world war, the consequences will come here too. At least, I can say that the terror affects me, but not just for it scared me, but because I think that it could be happen to me or to my family. But all that we can do here, is to pray to it stop, and show that peace and dialog is the best answer.

Yes terrorism affected us because now a common men always afraid to go anywhere due to afraid of terrorism. We are afraid to going to a public place where you find may crowd. Because always terrorist target those places where are crowed very much. So now I am also think sometimes when I go outside of the home.
