    That the rise of anti semitism is here. This is sad sad day. It's at a rise all over the world. People from the US don't know how good they have it and the reality of living in a country surrounded by people who's religious background teaches hated towards the jewish people. It's engrained in them. Not all, but many. When will YOU the outsiders understand that this is not something you can dissolve overnight? Some of you don't believe that WE as Israeli's deserve to protect ourselves? When clearly you don't live in any sort of conditions close to what we do. Why are you even angry about this whole thing? Your US Citizens, YOU come over here and live on the borders and we would see how you deal with it. Look at a map of the middle east and then look for Israel. Second, look at what we are surrounded by. All arab countries and then tiny little Israel... Not a one do we have solidified peace with. If we let our guard down at any point, we would be non existent. This is the reality of our daily life. The way I look at it. Israel is a model country. We deal with terror on a daily basis, both as a country and personally. Yet we push through and still continue to be a leader in various industries. We aren't perfect, far from it. But neither are any of you who are against us or your governments. Don't judge us for protecting ourselves. The day we stop is the day we perish. To finish up. Think about the whole picture here. If Israel was so unimportant to the world, then why does everyone want our land? hmm..? What do you think would happen if we were annihilated? What has the arab world brought to the table?
