I cannot overlook the rise of a new terrorist organization, one most of us have not heard about. The news broke on the day I hosted a party. The preparation was surreal; as I switched from party chores to watch the television coverage. Breathless journalists, some who only that day learned of ISIS, masked their emotions. The truth was too barbaric even for a seasoned war correspondent. A week has passed; and the ISIS is not mentioned in conversations that I over- hear. When I mention the threat I see my listener flick it off, like a flee. I sense their aversion to terrorism in the Middle East; while I am drawn to it.
One thought on “MAYHEM IN THE MIDDLE EAST”
Most Americans live in a vacuum of their own making, which consists of a false sense of security. They can’t HEAR of the violence in the Middle East for fear of disrupting their tranquility of life…..and while the World burns, they watch from the sidelines and ignore it all, except for a slap…..POLITICIANS ALIKE.
GOOD POST, AT LEAST SOMEONE IS PAYING ATTENTION
