In the last couple of months there is a sharp rise in the statistics-the statistics of terrorist attack in Israel and especially in Jerusalem.
back in the beginning of this century we had couple of grim years of suicide bombing on our buses and restaurants,an attacks that came from an organized extreme Muslim groups.our own FBI call Shabak managed to infiltrate those groups and after couple of years the descended to propaganda groups without any ability to attack us.
In recent months there is a new trend among many extreme Muslim people in the West bank and especially in east Jerusalem(where a lot of Palestinians lives in a poor conditions but work in Israel). this trend is very similar to the shooting in high schools trend that happening in the USA once in a while-a Palestinian guy can wake up in the morning after working in Jerusalem for 15 years and take his taxi and just make a killing spree with it on some innocent bystanders. it’s called “the lonely terrorist attack” and it’s characteristics are that it will come in a surprise with no early planning by the attacker and no clues. I think you’ll understand why it’s hard to stop those kind of attacks. how can our intelligence infiltrate an ordinary man mind? you can’t,you don’t even have some rules or guidelines to decide who is the typical people to executes those attack.
so what is the solution?
some say we need to deter those people by destroying their families homes after they attacked,some say we need to exclude them and cancel their citizenships.
what is my answer?-give them hope
when you give the population an economic opportunity and greater infrastructures like running water,better roads,more educational chances people will have something to look for..a light in the end of the tunnel.
when people will learned in school suddenly the preachers in the mosques wouldn’t be so attractive.
Suddenly the chance to go to college,to earn a better salary,to build a better house and go to vacations abroad will be more appealing then go and be brainwashed by the sheiks.
that’s the smartest solution that I can think of.
so do you guys remember the old post ” a new persistence era had began!” (https://yaronzeevik.wordpress.com/2014/06/16/a-new-persistence-era-begins/ )
so today guys I have a great news! a great progress have been made!
as you can see the times between kilometers had shortened drastically !
(between the 4th and the 5th I took a walk because my goal was to run 4 kilometers)
so apparently this is my last week in the army!.so close yet so far away.
I don’t know what is going to happen next Sunday when I will return my equipment and my gun and will finally go home.
I dreamt about this day for 3 years,I breath this day. I’m caressing for him to come but because it’s like a mythical event. I have some irrational fear that when I will go to the bus that will take mr home..an “inception” event will happen and I will be stuck in a loophole for the rest of my life.
my feelings in the last week are fear and excitement. I fear because I’m entering a new era but I’m excited because I’m free at last!
meanwhile the world cup is on.
although I’m not a crazy football fan there are things I never miss! Not even in the army!.(champion league is one of them too!)
so here im watching the world cup on uniforms and still having some good time!
So..for the last 3 years i served as a soldier in the Israeli defense army…my job was to be the gunner inside the tank…yes yes i served in a tank how cool is that?!.
because i moved with my tank to every place my fitness was..bad (and it’s a gentle saying)…i never was that kind of a fitness caring guy but in the last 2 months a so called “bug” caught me by surprise as suddenly from nowhere i started to practice in abs exercise and in the last couple of weeks i started to to the unthinkable 0.0..i started to do runnings!
until now it was a taboo for me!.
let me get it straight..i’m not fat and i never was..i’m just as lazy as possible.
running was consider by me as a living nightmare!
2 weeks ago i just gave myself a goal-passing 2 KM in less then 10 minutes.
at start in the first 2-3 runnings the results were horrible..but today..when i ran (my 4th time) i ran for 3.5km and the result surprise me! for the first time i saw an improvement! still i didn’t reached my goal but it’s a really nice indication !
“Persistence can change failure into extraordinary achievement”
here are the result for you to judge
