Sixteen Israelis Ran in Bombed-Boston Marathon

Sixteen Israelis ran in Monday’s terror-ridden Boston marathon, but none of them were wounded in the twin bombings.

Tzviki Bronstein, 57, flew to Boston to run in the marathon and was able to finish the race before the explosions.

He was walking back to his hotel room when he heard the explosions, he told the Hebrew language Yediot Acharonot newspaper. “It was a miracle that more weren’t killed because the place was packed,” he said.

He added that he knew of 15 other Israeli runners, and he was not aware they suffered any injuries from the two blasts, which occurred only 15 seconds apart.

    It's time to stop relying on the government and pressure employers to get rid of nationalist employees, deny employment and education on basis of Visas. If they want an education, they can get it abroad, not in the US. Time to police our own communities. Get right with God. Is anyone besides me ready to be an Isolationist country yet? We have ALL that we need HERE to support ourselves. We have All that we NEED and we don't NEED things we WANT from foreign countries. Keep our own money, buy from our own companies and use our own resources. America is a RICH country… All we need is God and Family and OUR country. Send all of the ILLEGALS back to their own country. Any who have gained citizenship that want to move BACK to their home country and renounce their citizenship should go home now! This would help our health care and school system overload problems immediately. More CITIZENS would have jobs, and welfare could be cut, and eventually done away with, with a few exceptions for REAL disabilities. Train those who CAN do something, TO DO something! Many armless and legless people, including injured military do work… so time to get people back to work, level taxes to fair-flat tax without exception! NO loopholes, no reduction for "unemployed, disabled or low-income" They pay the SAME percentage of income. It HURTS the rich and poor equally! Also, the top priority would be to bring troops home to protect our borders! And Social Security should be set to begin at age 65. It should be the same for ALL people no matter where you live. It MUST be averaged to apply equally. Though I wouldn't be opposed to means testing and going a separate route, but in no way am I for PUNISHING the JOB and BUSINESS Builders of this country. After retirement age, NO income TAXES should be due ever again! No property taxes, no taxes or fees for vehicles and property. Cut waste and fraud. Use the IRS employees to investigate waste and fraud and have laws to fix the broken system and enforce these laws of waste and fraud. Having said this… I know this will be difficult. But, we are Americans and where there's a will, there's a way in these United States! Stop the anchor baby rule. BOTH parents MUST be American citizens. If one is NOT, he or she MUST be required to become a citizen or the child will not be given citizenship. Deport the pregnant women first, along with their husbands. This shouldn't just apply to Mexicans or other Latino/Hispanics, but to ALL ILLEGALS!

    Get the UN out of our country and out of our SCHOOLS. Block C-Scope and Common Core… it's is data mining of PARENT'S PRIVATE personal information, the move has been said outright, that the goal is to TAKE ALL RIGHTS of our CHILDREN FROM the parents and turn it over to THE STATE (not state, but FEDERAL GOV'T= THE STATE!). This is a Marxist, Socialistic/Communistic way of brainwashing the young to turn against the parent (yes teachers and other educators, even your children against YOU!) This is computerized control, there is no education program, it's a government propaganda manipulation of the people from pre-school. STOP IT NOW! Attend your local town and county and school board meetings. Ask to speak and sign up on the agenda sign-in sheet. Prepare your speech or talking points. Tell the board/mayor/commissioners you do NOT agree! Tell them YOU are on to THEM and their Radical Liberal plans the plans that were used by Nazi's in WWII. Tell them you will be forming groups of parents to fight their mind-control, their SCANNING of your child's brain, the PRE-testing of 2-year-olds to DECIDE their FUTURE FOR THEM in the New Internationally controlled government. Call your governor, lt. Governor, Senator, House members to let them know that you want them to protect YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL Rights and the BILL OF RIGHTS. Tell them there WILL BE CONSEQUENCES to their selling out to their political cohorts. If they give you retoric then call them on their B.S. Stop wasting time, we are on the verge of losing our form of money, our ability to care for ourselves, as we are forced into poverty with only the elite few being left to enslave the rest of us. This IS AN ATTACK ON THE MIDDLE CLASS. It NEVER allows the poor to rise to become self-sufficient and less dependent on government. This is our LAST wake-up call.

    They (Jews) weren't the targets. Our traitor government leaders are trying to get us to throw ourselves into their hands like a damsel in distress into the villain's arms and beg that they save us! By taking away ALL of our freedoms. What BS! We need to realize that this is a trick, and pepper-spray the traitorous ba$t@r%& in the face. Give them some of their own medicine. Demand their prosecution and have a REAL CONSTITUTIONAL CONSERVATIVE ready to replace THE EVIL TRAITORS! Next who IS a real Constitutional Conservative. I'd say Glenn Beck … I know, he's a conspiracy theorist, wacho … our so we've all been told. Just when you trust a politician like Rubio or Rand Paul, they say something "Progressive" or ridiculous and cast doubts on us. Only a true, hard-fighting Tea Party Conservative will do!
