Acts of Terror!

Tel Aviv, Israel
December 19, 2015 1:44pm CST
This afternoon as I enjoyed my leisure walk to our church, I heard the loud sounds of siren that seems to come from all directions. As I walked further, I saw 2 police cars going and after a few, a racing ambulance passed by. My thoughts was "there might be some accident nearby". While at church, the loud sounds of a chopper were roaring above. It lasted for about 10 minutes that we were a bit bothered with our service. It was after our prayer service when I checked my phone (it was on silent mode), I have missed a lot of phone calls from my sister and some friends. They just saw on the news about another terrorist attack not far from our church! Everyone started checking their phones for news and indeed, the terrorist managed to stab 3 people. One man seriously injured and 2 women slightly wounded. They were all rushed to the hospital. It's a good thing they were able to capture the terrorist! What kind of news do you hear about Israel? I wonder.

I get news from the BBC...as you know they are fairly anti-Israel. We hear about attacks and the attacker being shot or killed or arrested.

I see, Most of the problem is, when Israel is oppressed, the international media does not seem to give a damn.. but as soon as Israel starts to defend itself , that's the time they start painting Israel as the bad one.

@tallawah Many times the media will fail to mention that Israel only shoots back but never start the shooting :)

@tallawah have you seen that video saying one hotel fired all the staff so they could offer the place to the refugees? Did you see those videos where a refugee woman was complaining about the place not having Televisions and they feel like they are in prison? These are refugees expecting to be treated as paying tourists. Have you seen the refugee man complaining because he cant satisfy his thing between his legs? I wonder if those were actually humans :(

I'm afraid we don't hear much about Isreal. I am glad they caught the terrorist and that no one was killed. Did they kill the terrorist?

No, he was arrested. The have to neutralize a terrorist if they have to but they always try their best to do arrest. In cases where the terrorist is injured, they will bring him to a hospital and will provide the best medical care. That's how good Israel is.

It really does depend on where the news is coming from. In the US, we can't really rely on our main stream media to tell us the truth anymore. Same way in other NATO countries the news is fake and people have came forward to blow the whistle on it.

Yeah that's true. Your President is very much anti Israel so I am sure he ordered restrictions about what to air when it comes to Israel

I don't watch a lot of news anymore so I haven't heard anything. I'm so sorry that your country is having this going on and that innocent lives were lost.

Thanks Sharon, I don't like watching the news either. It only gives us distress. Yeah I think Israel has always been oppressed since the Bible times. But God is always with them :)
