Armed Teachers stop Terrorist Attack in Israel

"Two Palestinian terrorists disguised in Israel Defense Forces (IDF) uniforms entered the study hall at Makor Haim High School in Kibbutz Kfar Etzion southeast of Jerusalem.

Al-Aksa Brigades: Assassinate Fayyad Armed with guns and knives, the terrorists managed to stab several students before armed school counselors arrived and shot them dead."

"Israel: More Guns In Schools

Israel's government officials have once again demonstrated a better grip on reality than have those in the United States when it comes to self-defense.

As the terror attacks have escalated in Israel, a number of attempts have been thwarted when armed Israeli citizens shot and killed the terrorists. Seeking to have more of a good thing, the Israeli government announced plans to issue 40,000 more gun licenses to civilians according to the London Times.

Even better, the government is giving away guns to teachers."

BRAVO!! Isreal is smarter than we are.
People must think on this. If you want to make guns illegal, maybe we should make heroine and meth illegal as well. I'd feel safer.

Maniacs would still get guns even if made illegal . Maybe school faculty should train in concealed carry. Back to basics as in ole west.

Meth is illegal, yet it's destroying our society because the people who want it STILL have access. Heroin is illegal but it's STILL easy to get your hands on it. So how would making firearms illegal to own, take the firearms away from a criminal??

As long as we have criminals wanting something, we're going to have criminals who know how find it. Street drugs are illegal as hell, but the laws have NOT stopped any of the drug abuse. Those of us who aren't felons are legally allowed to own firearms, yet these convicted felons who aren't legally able to own are STILL finding ways to get those firearms. Where there's a will, there's a way.

Making firearms illegal is NOT going to stop criminals from carrying out a crime with a gun... It's only going to disarm those of us who carry and own for our personal protection.

If you are smart you will not let yourself and your home go without protection. Tell the cops to notify the coroner on their way ..if they ever come, and to not trip over the body in the doorway.

Just saw on the news that the school shooter's mom bought the arsenal of guns because of her fear of the direction the country is going in. In my opinion, that makes it Obama's fault.

Now Obama with his fake tears will use this tragedy to take drastic measures to disarm the people so he can better achieve his goal of destroying America. I got news for him, whatever he does for gun control, it won't work.

Who can be THAT tore up and not be continuously swallowing. I watched the original broadcast and wondered "Who cries from the side of their eyes?"
Plus he used his middle finger in a gesture I found revolting considering the circumstances.

COLUMBINE STUDENT'S FATHER 12 YEARS LATER !!
Guess our national leaders didn't expect this. On Thursday, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton, Colorado, was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee's subcommittee. What he said to our national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful.
They were not prepared for what he was to say, nor was it received well. It needs to be heard by every parent, every teacher, every politician, every sociologist, every psychologist, and every so-called expert! These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the wilderness.. The following is a portion of the transcript:
"Since the dawn of creation there has been both good & evil in the hearts of men and women. We all contain the seeds of kindness or the seeds of violence. The death of my wonderful daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, and the deaths of that heroic teacher, and the other eleven children who died must not be in vain. Their blood cries out for answers.
"The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel out in the field. The villain was not the club he used.. Neither was it the NCA, the National Club Association. The true killer was Cain, and the reason for the murder could only be found in Cain's heart.
"In the days that followed the Columbine tragedy, I was amazed at how quickly fingers began to be pointed at groups such as the NRA. I am not a member of the NRA. I am not a hunter. I do not even own a gun. I am not here to represent or defend the NRA - because I don't believe that they are responsible for my daughter's death. Therefore I do not believe that they need to be defended. If I believed they had anything to do with Rachel's murder I would be their strongest opponent
I am here today to declare that Columbine was not just a tragedy -- it was a spiritual event that should be forcing us to look at where the real blame lies! Much of the blame lies here in this room. Much of the blame lies behind the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best.
Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
Your words are empty air.
You've stripped away our heritage,
You've outlawed simple prayer.
Now gunshots fill our classrooms,
And precious children die.
You seek for answers everywhere,
And ask the question "Why?"
You regulate restrictive laws,
Through legislative creed.
And yet you fail to understand,
That God is what we need!
"Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, mind, and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our make-up, we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush in and wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were present within our educational systems for most of our nation's history. Many of our major colleges began as theological seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and in so doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And when something as terrible as Columbine's tragedy occurs -- politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the NRA. They immediately seek to pass more restrictive laws that contribute to erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws. Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts.

"As my son Craig lay under that table in the school library and saw his two friends murdered before his very eyes, he did not hesitate to pray in school. I defy any law or politician to deny him that right! I challenge every young person in America , and around the world, to realize that on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School prayer was brought back to our schools. Do not let the many prayers offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move into the new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that violates your God-given right to communicate with Him. To those of you who would point your finger at the NRA -- I give to you a sincere challenge.. Dare to examine your own heart before casting the first stone!
My daughter's death will not be in vain! The young people of this country will not allow that to happen!"
- Darrell Scott

Do what the media did not -- let the nation hear this man's speech. Please send this out to everyone you can

I hate how this has turned to a political issue. Truly disgusting and disrespectful. However the media has pushed this, so I can't be too mad at you for regurgitating non-sense irrelevant to what has happened.
