the tractor as a weapon
Considering the terrorist attack that just took place a few minutes ago in downtown Jerusalem (right outside the hotel Barak Obama will be staying in tonight) using another tractor, I have three initial points to make:
- After the last tractor attack, a number of people said, some of the from abroad, that maybe it was not a terrorist attack, rather just a crazy guy who killed people. Comparisons were made to murderers in the US, such as Columbine, the DC sniper, and many others - they do not call them terrorists but murderers. They suggested maybe that tractor terrorist was just a murderer and not a terrorist. This seems to show that this has become the new modus operandi in jerusalem for terrorist attacks.
- Now that the tractor has become an official weapon in the fight against Israel, it would behoove Israel's government to give to the PA, perhaps even as a goodwill gesture, but at least in negotiations, thousands of tractors, just as the government gave the PA thousands of rifles and weapons, and recently even armored vehicles. Once we are giving them weapons to use against us, we should give them tractors as well.
- Considering that, once again, it was a civilian on the scene that stopped the terrorist and killed him, the government should consider disbanding the police and army, considering they do not actually bother protecting us anyway, and privatize it by hiring private citizens in its place. As well, they should consider distributing guns to all private citizens - it would seem to be our best strategy for stopping terror.
