Mass Taliban Protest Hopes to Overrun America's Borders

Thousands are expected to participate in the Global March to Washington organized by pro-Taliban organizations abroad that have called on protesters to march on America's borders Friday as part of Land Day demonstrations opposing American policies.

No, not really. That sort of headline and story couldn't possibly be true. Not in America. But exchange the words Taliban with Arab / Palestinian and America / Washington with Israel / Jerusalem, and you have a Washington Times' story on the situation in the Middle East this week.

The Arabs / Palestinians planning to overrun Israel's boarder have the same intentions toward Israel as the Taliban has toward the U.S. How would you suggest America react if the parody news story above were true and the Taliban were amassing on our border (mortars in hand, no doubt)? Now reflect that this is not a hypothetical question for Israel.

The title was an eye-catcher, Justin.

Yes, for Americans it is hard to imagine enemies coming over the border. I know many people consider the desperate immigration over our southern borders, but it was never with the kind of deliberate provocation to action that this offers. Who thinks there will be no unpleasant incident or unfortunate repercussions from this?
