    The difference is, in Israel, when Jews are killed, or when somebody even tries, Israel treats it as an act of war, and we Jews make our enemies PAY with their lives. Lots of lives. When Arab terrorists attack Jews in the US, or France or UK, it is investigated as a common crime (if at all), and only the individual attackers are maybe prosecuted, not the regimes that give the orders and fund them. Obama's reaction to attempted mass murder of Jews in a synagogue: "we will remain vigilant" - no order to hit back HARD, which is how DETERRENCE works. Why do you think Al Qaidah never EVER attacks Israel? Never. Bin Laden values his life, and that of his family, he knows exactly what would happen, and it wouldn't be moving rocks around in Afganistan. The roof would fall in. Israel is the only country in the history of the world that would launch all-out war if a couple hundred Jews were killed in an Arab terror attack on a synagogue. Tens of thousands of Arabs would die in the counter strike, and Israel wouldn't give a rats ass if doing that was "destablizing". The Arabs know better. That's why Jews are safer there.
