    I got this as an attachment to an email from another list I am subscribed to, and supposed to be forwarded, and since I do not know everybody's email addresses here I decided to post it instead.
    I feel this is something to think about and may help us in dealing with this terrorism, and give us light on how our government is doing its best to "protect" us.

    I was going to post this in the News forum but thought why there, it isn't news, but if mods feel that's where this belongs, then just go ahead and do what you need to do.
    The real scary part is his statement about the "next level of terrorists".
    Who they will be.
    Watch it.
    I colored that part for emphasis.

    The problem is a large part of our population is in denial about the threat we face. Our current President has done pretty much all the things that many believed would pacify the terrorists and yet it hasn't. Of course, that's because they don't have a clue why the terrorists are mad at us in the first place.

    The OP link appears to be part rumor, part myth:

    http://www.snopes.com/rumors/soapbox/juvalaviv.asp

    edited to add: Oops, Paul beat me to it.

    As a matter of course, it's always a good idea to check any chain mail you get with snopes or similar site.

    Why can't we check Snopes.com for everything before posting?

    okay, that was my fault.
    I didn't even think of snopes because I wasn't that aware of its existence.
    I will have to alert the sender about that.
    Still, there are some grain of truth about what was said.

    Knowing is half the battle.

    Anything I get with FW:FW:FW:FW:FW:FW: or just one of those I check. I also checked anything I get that is a "call to action" or "why I'm an American" or "I'm honored to xyz."

    There are lots of these kinds of emails sent out. The problem is too many honest people are taken in by them because they seem credible. What the writers of these things are doing is very dubious, often they are further propagating a political cause using religious concepts to exacerbate the situation. Honest people are taken in because they care.:flower:
