Subject: Bomb Threat - It is simply a case of terrorists
On Friday morning, I was out when my wife received several angry phone
calls from a man speaking in Swedish with an arabic accent. Except for
all the immoral statements, he mentioned many times that, G-d forbid,
there was a bomb in the house and "we Palestinians will...."
We naturally called the police immediately and they also heard him saying
the same when they came. They immediately called the bomb squads and evacuated
the house for many hours.
The television and press came immediately on the scene and interviewed
us. We mentioned to them that "funnily" in all these years,
not one mosque has been damaged, no arabs have been attacked in the streets,
and no arab establishment in the world (to my best knowledge) has been
Such things were unthinkable in Sweden just a few years ago, but now
the world is not the same. It is not an issue of a nation or a race. It
is simply a case of terrorists who are trying to take over the civilized
world. It is the same team of people who in one country they blow up buildings
with thousands of innocent people inside, in another country they blow
up themselves in public places killing the masses of, again, innocent
people, in another country they burn synagogues, in another country they
stab and hurt innocent people and in another country they make bomb threats.
They are all fighting a so called "Holy War" in the name of
G-d. They want to destroy anything else but their belief. It is not a
question of land for them. It is also not a question of peace. All they
want is full control of the entire world, just like the crazy madman that
took over Germany in 1933. The targets have always been innocent bread
winners, working hard to make a living and support their families, or
children or old people enjoying the Pesach Seder in Netanya...and in one
instant all is taken away.
Israel is dealing only with terrorists now, just like the US in Afghanistan.
Any other country would do the same. Why should Israel be different? A
terrorist is a terrorist, and Israel should have the full right to protect
itself from them, as long as necessary.
Wishing you lots of success,
May we all merit the real Golden Age of knowledge, tolerance, high moral
peace, happiness and respect with the coming of Moshiach very soon,
as predicted by the Lubavitcher Rebbe.
Every additional act of goodness and kindness will help bring Moshiach
All the best / Vänligaste Hälsningar / Hatzlacha Raba',
