"Face of terror" or how they make us fear on every step!

Hello guys! Two days ago a bad thing happened in my country Bulgaria. A bus with people from Israel exploded and few people died. I am feeling very sorry for these people and if there are people from Israel here, I would like to apologize to all of them for our security services who couldn't protect the tourists. But I would like here to talk about something else. We have never had a signs of terror here. Many accidents were happening often, like people were killed in car accidents, or often robberies. Even yesterday, a day after the explosion one person tried to steal money from one of our post offices with gas pistol. And now what gets me annoyed and little worried is how our TV, news and everyone working in the TV makes steps into making our nation afraid of the terror. Til now we were expecting everything else to happen, but not an act of terrorism. Well, now our TV's use it as a topic already two days, speaking how this explosion has been act on very high level and it means that we are already a part of the destinations attractive for the terrorist. I don't think so. I think it all happened here, because until now our society has never faced such acts and because no one expected such thing to happen now or for future. Now they all talk about it ... Put fear in our hearts. They discuss it the way like now when we leave our homes we must look around and search for the signs of if anyone around us is terrorist. I hate the way people have been ruled just because they are afraid to make a step away. It's a big speculation with the topic of terror.

Terrorists are trying hard to create fear in the mind of foreign tourists who plan to visit a beautiful country like Bulgaria by carried out mass killing on this bus. They are hoping it will cripple the tourism industry of Bulgaria and at the same time killing innocent people to suit their perverted political goal on the government of the day. It is sad to know that after the 9/11 terrorism attack in USA, many countries still don't get the message of terrorist well enough to step up their domestic security to protect innocent people inside their country, they remain complacent and clueless even after many terrorism had been successfully carried out by domestic and international terrorist group around the world.

I guess it's like that here, I mean with the weak security services, because of the experience. We always thought that such thing will never happen here. We helped the jews who lived here during the time of Hitler, also we have lots of people who are turkish in our country. We have different temples here, of different religions. We have never had any experience with terrorism. I am sorry about 9/11.

Actually it probably is a terrorist act, because the body which exploded the most was of a person who had face documents - fake car driving license. But still I think it's not a reason to make massive panic of all what happened. The airport is in my city and it makes me feel terrible to know that I have to live in fear all the time.

I've been to a country were terrorism is made a tool for political reasons. Yes it serves their purpose, but sadly they leave a lot of victims. It sad that your own TV station is making itself an instrument to propagate these type of terrorism. I hope that they come to their senses that they can also make themselves an instrument to promote peace.

First I would like to say how sorry I was to hear on the news about the bus attack.All those poor people dying like that.I know what you mean about the tv they make everything worse putting the idea in everybodies head it will happen again.In England they do the same thing ,they make it sound like it is happening everyday and people are to frightened to leave the house.Just be vigilant that is all you can do.From what you say it does not happen very often in Bulgaria.So many countries have terrorist strikes.We learned to live with it over here.Thankfully the security services manage to stop the majority of the attempts.Not saying what happened was not bad it was terrible.The media make it worse because it sells newspapers and keeps you watching their TV channel.The best thing to do is get on with life and just be a bit more watchful.Don't go out expecting to meet a bomber you cannot live like that.Then then the terrorist has won.Just carry on as normal the fuss will soon die down and life will get back to normal.Take care

It never happened before here in Bulgaria, probably that's why all of the people are interested to see, to try to have the more information. But growing a society full of fear is not good. And I am little worried it will make our society more attractive to those, who make terrorist attacks just like that. I guess they are not doing it only because they want to kill someone. The attention we pay about it will make us more attractive for them.

That's where my faith in the Lord comes in. I refuse to be terrified and allow it to keep me living a life of fear. We could all die at any time, from a car accident or a heart attack. I trust the Lord is watching over me and protecting me from all danger because He's got plans for my life.
