Bad Things Brewing

There have been some ill winds blowing across the world. In Paris, a Jewish-owned pastry shop in a known Jewish neighborhood was bombed. In Ethiopia, Israeli ambassador Doron Grossman, was found shot in the head. He's in critical condition, and they aren't ruling out the possibility of suicide -- but I can't help thinking it smells fishy.

But perhaps the most troubling event occurred in Israel. The word "Hitler" was graffitied onto David Ben-Gurion's grave in Sde-Boker. Not only that, but on Mt. Herzl in Jerusalem, spray painted on the grave of Binyamin Ze'ev Herzl was the phrase, "neo-Nazis, long live Beilin." Ill winds, people. Ill winds.

... and, unfortunately (... or fortunately, depending how one views it), The Elite Media, no doubt; is putting its "rotation about a fixed object" onto the reporting of such sad events?

I firmly believe that all these types of "events" have taken place since the dawn of time ... only now, "instantaneous news" and the fear of "dead air" highlights them in a way that no other reporting manner has ever done.

Agitation, "drum beating" and the allowing of isolated incidents to fuel individuals and groups to "feel" that "they" have succeeded in their nefarious effort and their "cause" is just ... makes me ill!

The radicals have firmly established their presence in Israel and they are "rooting" for "peace".
I hate pointing out to my own "produce" but I wrote a little bit about it here:

Plus some idiot graffitied "Allah" onto the Eastern wall in Jerusalem. Things will likely work out quite well in the end, I think, but on the way there, what else will go wrong, and who will be hurt? I imagine that it's always been a struggle for mankind to grapple with a largely unpredictable world—and for the Jews, in recent history (2,000+ years), even moreso.

Don't mean to downplay this, but hasn't this sort of thing, or worse, been going on for a long time?

Granted, this stuff has happened before, but I fear there is a rising tide of anti-semitism throughout the world, and these may be manifestations of a deeper malady. Israel sits at the center of a bullseye. We have GOT to win the War to stem this tide.
