    Terror Attacks in Israel

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Jason Langsner recorded an impassioned video about his thoughts on the rising tension between Israelis and Palestinians. "This terror must end," he said. Eight Israelis have been killed and scores injured in attacks, an Israeli spokesman said. More than 30 Palestinians have been reported dead in recent weeks.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    Hello, my name is Jason Langsner, I am a Jewish American living in Washington, DC. Like myself many Americans will be glued to the television tonight watching the CNN Democratic Presidential debate.

     

    There Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Jim Webb, Lincoln Chaffee, and Martin O'Malley will be debating the key issues facing America today to try to educate voters about who to support in the upcoming 2016 election.

     

    Unfortunately, I woke up this morning to other kind of news. More serious news. I woke to the news from the Israeli press about the ongoing terror and incitement facing the innocent civilians of Israel. These threats by knives, by axes, by cars, by fire bombs - are very credible. Innocent Israelis are being targeted solely because they are Israeli and solely because they are Jewish.

     

    This terror must end. This incitement must end.

     

    Americans should be informed about this ongoing terror and this ongoing incitement.

     

    Unfortunately the news hasn't been reporting it to the fact that this type of importance of news justifies. Therefore, for my third CNN iReport, I wanted to enourage all of you watching this to go online and Google what's going on in Israel today. You can watch videos. You can see the terror. You can see the incitement.

     

    Again. I encourage all of you to go online, to Google, to search, to go to any website that is covering this adequately and to find the news; and to find these videos; and to find the stories of the innocent civilians - men, women, and children - that are being hunted today in Israel purely because they are Israeli and only because they are Jewish.
