The importance of being there... or here...

Reader comment on item: Sisi's Incompetent Anti-Islamist Campaign

I understand you... I used to be there, but since 1977 and again since 1992, I am here.

Islam and Islamic masses cannot be influenced or changed. ... I will report now to you a single incident I witnessed. At our Israeli City's main Mall. I drove there to buy some medicines at the pharmacy and as I exited noticed a group of 12 late teenagers walking toward another store nearby. They all were armed with heavy tree branches clubs. All bystanders rushed out of the way. We knew what was up...

That time their objective was one of their own, a young Muslim working at the targeted store. We called the police as we moved away. Meanwhile the roving items smashed their way into the store and attacked their victim. The police station is very near and a force arrived at this point.

All twelve were mauled to bits, one of them died there and two more later. The rest will never be able to walk again. The police force here includes at least 50% Muslims.
