Are we the canary in the mine shaft now?
Israel National News (CNN interview notbroadcast in the U.S.) ^ | June 2002 | Arutz Sheva / CNN

We are slaughtered on a daily basis, but - you're next! You're next, buddies...

Last night I received this link to a 2 minute Windows Media File audio-only interview with an Israeli woman whose mother, 56, and infant daughter, aged 14 months, were killed in a terrorist attack last June.

The first minute of the interview is quite brutal: but it's the last minute that (sadly) seems timely.

click here to listen to the interview in WMP format

As we now endure almost daily attacks from this sniper (I don't know if this maniac shooting up the DC/MD/VA area is a terr, though I think it likely) after listening to this woman, it's hard not to wonder (a) if we learned anything from 9/11, and (b) whether we are in the mine shaft now.


TOPICS: Foreign Affairs; Government; Israel; News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: terrorism; zionist
The following is excerpted from the Israel National News transcript of the interview done by CNN/Europe ( that was not broadcast in the U.S) after a homicide bomber detonated himself near an ice cream parlor outside a shopping mall in Petah Tikva.

CNN: How do you see the future? How do you see this unfold?

Chen: I'll tell you how I see the future: I think Israel is like the canary in the coal mine, and that's what the Europeans - and I am sorry, I know this goes to Europe, and I said different [more positive] things to America [on CNN-USA] - but we in Israel are dying now. We are slaughtered on a daily basis, but - you're next! You're next, buddies. I understand that you have a lot of Muslim minorities. That's OK, everybody should live where he wants - but you are appeasing terrorism! And you hope that if you tolerate it, and try to understand its motives, and you give it reasons, whatever they are, I ask the Europeans: Do not tolerate murder! I don't want to use the word terrorism, because it's banal. Do not tolerate murder, do not appease the terrorists! Not for oil, and not because you're scared - because the more fear you show, the faster it's going to be on your doorstep - and then, G-d help you, because you gave it legitimacy. And my baby's blood is just as precious as any French blood -- G-d help these hypocritical people..."

Forgive me if this was posted last summer. I searched but couldn't find it.

There have been, and are, other canaries in the mineshaft--Lebanon, Serbia, FYR Macedonia, Kahsmir, south Sudan, the southern Phillipines, the Maluccas and Sulawesi, and small minority Christian communities in various other places in the islamic world. Christians, Jews, Hindus,and others throughout the world who are or may become victims of the international islamic jihad need to show solidarity with each other, and strike the terrorists as ONE FIST!!!!

Even if the DC snipers (and there ARE more than one, almost certainly) are not international islamic terrorists, acts of muslim mass murder and violence give local crazies new ideas, too. So stopping the whitewashing and appeasement of the international islamic jihad will aid in at least damping down the copy-cats as well.

This cryptic message has been posted here many times. The Islamic terrorists have a saying, "After Saturday, then comes Sunday." For those who may not be up to discerning cryptic messages at this time of day, it means Jews first, Christians next.

September 11th, 2001, was the first day of the Third World War.

This is an epic struggle between Western and Russian Orthodox Christendom and the Muslim conquest.

There will be a titanic conflict on the scale of the Second World War when all is said and done. There is a disease at hand in the Islamic world, and it is hurtling the Islamic community towards a war with the West. That is the unintended consequence of bin Laden's war.

A terrible defeat is at hand for Islam. When the Christian world is aroused, and has at hand the fruits of rational discourse and scientific inquiry, nothing can stop it.

Be Seeing You,

Chris

"we are all in the crosshairs.....of the Religion of Peace."

Yep, this sniper is just the beginning.You can't convince the appeasers though.They will deny deny deny until someone they love is the one to die and then some of them will still deny.

The muslim religon is NOT the religon of peace and no amount of lying will convince me that it is.

All through history, when the muslims became the majority, they forced their beliefs on every one else at the threat of death.

They are infiltrating our government, courts, military, armed services.
When they get strong enough (and they will, with nothing stopping them) it will be our turn.

Appease away people, but get yourself a copy of the Qur'an and study. You'll need to know it someday.

wonder (a) if we learned anything from 9/11

We learned how firmly entrenched the left's ideas of pacifism and political correctness are in our society.

Outstanding post. This is not a transcript, but what I took away.

It's directed to Europe, but we need to listen and learn from it.

You have children? Close your eyes, see the puddle of blood, and know the horror. Daily slaughter, MURDER, not terrorism, a nearly acceptable term.

We’re next, actually we're there. Do we try to tolerate, understand, appease terrorism?

We’re tolerating MURDER.

Appease the terrorists?

The more fear we show, the faster on our doorstep, we give it legitimacy.

You know Yehuda, and whoever else is reading this (and please listen to the link).

This is not about Israel, or Europe, it’s about us, here, in America, and about saving our children from a pool of blood.

I was tempted to NOT put the transcript excerpts up there, but thought there might be a few Freepers who don't/can't play WMP files.

You are right - it's HEARING that woman that drives the point home.

We (Western Ethics folk) have been fighting these moon rock worshipping savages' hegemony for almost 1400 years now....it ebbs and flows...

This is flow time.....in the end we will prevail to be sure but our soft underbelly of which guilt and political correctness are mere symptoms will cause us needless self inflicted carnage.

Yehuda, I am glad you posted this. I don't think the Israelis can know how much we Christians support them. The Left amazes me in their blindness.

Thank you Yehuda for sending this story my way... remarkable.    Phil, I couldn't agree with you more...   btw, are you referring to sanctioned lying:
...within Islam there is the principle of "Al Takeyya."   The term means, "prevention". This principle permits Muslims to lie at their discretion whenever they interpret that it is expedient for the influence of Islam or their personal protection and well-being

I disagree. I think that it is the intended consequence.

Meanwhile Bush and Powell are appeasing Arafat and every other Muslim. Not a month passes by that the Ari Fleischer says that "Islam is a religion of peace". I've had enough. The only good Muslim is a dead one.

I can't wait to get activated so we can start wiping these f***ING ISLAMISTS from the planet.

They've already declared war on us. It is time to ride the lightning.

Well said, but you're wrong on one point. ISLAM IS THE DISEASE. Islam is what will be wiped out. When all is said and done there will not be a single follower of Mohommed left on the planet to breed more hate & bloodlust.

Thanks for the ping. Someone here on FR said they were sick of being used as bait to catch the terrorists. I think there is a lot of truth in that statement. I can only hope that we will not have to relearn the same lessons Israel has learned. I also have to believe that if Americans and Israelis switched places, we would have plowed and salted the so-called occupied territories long ago.

A point I've pressed many times in conversations with lefties, thug lovers (pardon the redundancy) and Muslims who babble about the "brutality" of Israelis.

If every other circumstance were exactly the same excepting only that Israel was populated by Americans, Europeans, Arabs (fersureashell Arabs), Chinese, Japanese, Eskimos -- by any other groups but Jews, or maybe Quakers -- does anyone really believe that the Palestinian Arabs would not have been wiped out or transfered from the territories long ago? The patience, restraint, compassion and morality of the Israelis -- measured, admittedly, not against a standard of perfection, but rather against anything those knowledgable of human nature and human history should reasonably expect -- is utterly remarkable.

The system cannot locate the resource specified.

I seem to have trouble with WMP files lately. I don't know why.

Strong and relevant truth:

... do not appease the terrorists! Not for oil, and not because you're scared - because the more fear you show, the faster it's going to be on your doorstep - and then, G-d help you...

The Israeli's show restraint... and get framed for "massacres" that never took place.

The Palestinians routinely massacre innocent civilians... and get treated as "victims of repression" by the American and European Leftist Press.

Still thinking that the sniper may be cover for something much more sinister.

Why Washington DC?
