Israel suffers terrorist attacks almost daily but have you ever seen a #Je Suis Jerusalem hashtag trending on twitter? When Europe and Australia and other countries suffer a terrorist attack it is headline news and people march in the street in support and light candles and place flowers.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, far left, was among the dozens of world leaders
World leaders get together and people talk in hushed tones about the terrible tragedy.Magazines compete to get access to the survivors offering them large sums of money so that they can get the inside scoop.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was there to support Paris after their terrorist attack but where is the support for Israel? Is it because the terrorism there is so common? Does the world seriously think that terrorism against Israeli citizens is in any way less terrifying and devastating than terrorism against any other group of citizens?
No one is going to be offering money to the mother whose daughter was severely burned for her story. No world leaders are going to be linking arms and singing the Israeli National anthem. Instead the Israeli people will bury their dead and care for their wounded and continue to put up with the condemnation from the ignorant and the biased as they continue to defend their homeland from attacks both inside and outside of Israel.
A survivor of the Jerusalem bus bombing on Monday night recalled from her hospital bed how she searched for her teenage daughter in the immediate aftermath of the terror attack and found her “all burned.” Dadon, a resident of Jerusalem, was on the No. 12 bus with her 15-year-old daughter Eden on Monday afternoon when it exploded, injuring 21 people.
Two people were seriously hurt, including one in critical condition, and six were moderately injured, police and paramedics said.
…“Everything was dark and smoky, I looked for my daughter and she was all burned,” Dadon told the Ynet news website. “After the explosion I collapsed. Her face was all black, you couldn’t see her.”
