Security and the So-Called "Occupation," sic

I don't know why people are so afraid to come to Israel. All and all, with the very low crime/murder rate, rather competent police and concerned/interfering private citizens, one is safer in Israel than most places in the world. Add to that top notch medical care, decent roads and a great variety of climates and places of interest etc (compared to many tourist favorites) Israel should be the number one choice for international travellers.

The frequency of terror attacks, which some people use as an excuse not to come, is lower than the murder rate in most places.

And here in Israel there isn't the "ticking bomb" that awaits, like in many places such as Europe. Dry Bones drew it right! Isn't this the 21st Century's version of theCommunist "sleepers?"

The immigrant situation in Germany, according to the Gatestone Institute:

" the German government has lost track of the whereabouts of hundreds of thousands of migrants who entered the country in 2015. N24 television has reported that up to 50% of "asylum seekers" have gone into hiding; their whereabouts are unknown. They presumably include economic migrants and others who are trying to avoid deportation if or when their asylum applications are rejected. The Saarbrücker Zeitung reported that up to 30% of the migrants being sheltered in the eastern German states of Brandenburg, Thuringia and Saxony-Anhalt have "simply vanished." Separately, German authorities estimate that hundreds of thousands of migrants have entered the country without being registered and whose whereabouts are unknown."-more

Europe, more specifically France, has been plagued with terror attacks on massive numbers of ordinary citizens, and they have no way to stop them. In the United States, terror and shootings can never be predicted.

And more about Israel, concerning the so-called "occupation," if it was all so terrible for the Arabs here, they'd be leaving in massive numbers like the Syrians. And they'd also be clamoring to get into the P.A. -Palestinian Authority. But the actual situation is totally different. The local Arabs try to live in "Israel proper," inside the "green line." And those on "my side" of the old pre-Six Days War border, prefer "occupation" to the P.A. -Palestinian Authority.

Food for thought... Have that with your coffee or booze!
