Got this in a chain letter, which I rarely forward, but I think this one makes sense...so I am sharing and you can read and discard, or take action, your choice.

Juval Aviv was the Israeli Agent upon whom the movie, 'Munich' was based.. He was Golda Meir's bodyguard - she appointed him to track down and bring to justice the Palestinian terrorists who took the Israeli athletes hostage and killed them during the Munich Olympic games.

In a lecture in New York City a few weeks (months??) ago, he shared information that EVERY American needs to know but that our

government has not yet shared with us.

He predicted the London subway bombing on the Bill O'Reilly show on Fox News stating publicly that it would happen within a week. At the time, O'Reilly laughed and mocked him saying that in a week he wanted him back on the show.

But, unfortunately, within a week the terrorist attack had occurred.

Juval Aviv gave intelligence (via what he had gathered in Israel and the Middle East ) to the Bush Administration about 9/11 a month before it occurred. His report specifically said they would use planes as bombs and target high profile buildings and monuments.

Congress has since hired him as a security consultant.

Now for his future predictions. He predicts the next terrorist attack on the U.S. will occur within the next few months.

Forget hijacking airplanes, because he says terrorists will NEVER try and hijack a plane again as they know the people onboard will never go down quietly again. Aviv believes our airport security is a joke -- that we have been

reactionary rather than proactive in developing strategies that are truly effective.



For example:



1) Our airport technology is outdated. We look for metal, and the new explosives are made of plastic.



2) He talked about how some idiot tried to light his shoe on fire. Because of that, now everyone has to take off their shoes. A group of idiots tried to bring aboard liquid explosives. Now we can't bring liquids on board. He says he's waiting for some suicidal maniac to pour liquid explosive on his underwear; at which point, security will
have us all traveling naked! Every strategy we have is reactionary.

3) We only focus on security when people are heading to the gates. Aviv says that if a terrorist attack targets airports in the future, they will target busy times on the front end of the airport when/where people are checking in.

It would be easy for someone to take two suitcases of explosives, walk up to a busy check-in line, ask a person next

to them to watch their bags for a minute while they run to the restroom or get a drink and then detonate the bags

BEFORE security even gets involved. In Israel , security checks bags BEFORE people can even ENTER the airport.



Aviv says the next terrorist attack here in America is imminent and will involve suicide bombers and non-suicide bombers in places where large groups of people congregate. (I. E., Disneyland, Las Vegas casinos, big cities New
York, San Francisco, Chicago, etc.) and that it will also include shopping malls, subways in rush hour, train stations, etc., as well as rural America this time ( Wyoming , Montana , etc.).



The attack will be characterized by simultaneous detonations around the country (terrorists like big impact),involving at least 5-8 cities, including rural areas.



Aviv says terrorists won't need to use suicide bombers in many of the larger cities, because at places like the MGM

Grand in Las Vegas, they can simply valet park a car loaded with explosives and walk away.



Aviv says all of the above is well known in intelligence circles, but that our U. S. Government does not want to

'alarm American citizens' with the facts. The world is quickly going to become 'a different place', and issues like

'global warming' and political correctness will become totally irrelevant.



On an encouraging note, he says that Americans don't have to be concerned about being nuked. Aviv says the terrorists

who want to destroy America will probably not use sophisticated weapons.. They like to use suicide as a front-line approach.

It's cheap, it's easy, it's effective; and they have an infinite abundance of young militants more than willing to
'meet their destiny'.
He also says the next level of terrorists, over which America should be most concerned, will not be coming from abroad. But will be, instead, 'homegrown' - having attended and been educated in our own schools and universities right here in the U. S. He says to look for 'students' who frequently travel back and forth to the Middle East .

These young terrorists will be most dangerous because they will know our language and will fully understand the habits of Americans; but that we Americans won't know/understand a thing about them.



Aviv says that, as a people, Americans are unaware and uneducated about the terrorist threats we will inevitably face.

America still has only a handful of Arabic and Farsi speaking people in our intelligence networks and Aviv says it is critical that we change that fact SOON.

So, what can America do to protect itself? From an intelligence perspective, Aviv says the U.S. needs to stop relying on satellites and technology for intelligence. We need to, instead, follow Ireland 's and England 's hands-on examples of human intelligence, both from an infiltration perspective as well as to trust 'aware' citizens to help. We need to engage and educate ourselves as citizens; however, our U. S. government continues to treat us, its citizens, 'like babies'. Our government thinks we 'can't handle the truth' and are concerned that we'll panic if we understand the realities of terrorism. Aviv says this is a deadly mistake.

Aviv recently created/executed a security test for our Congress, by placing an empty briefcase in five well-traveled spots in five major cities. The results? Not one person called 911 or sought a policeman to check it out.....in-
fact, in Chicago, someone tried to steal the briefcase!
In comparison, Aviv says that citizens of Israel are so well 'trained' that an unattended bag or package would be reported in seconds by citizen(s) who know to publicly shout, 'Unattended Bag!' The area would be quickly & (calmly??)
cleared by the citizens themselves. But, unfortunately, America hasn't been yet 'hurt enough' by terrorism for their government to fully understand the need to educate its citizens or for the government to understand that it's their citizens who are, inevitably, the best first-line of defense against terrorism.

Aviv also was concerned about the high number of children here in America who were in preschool and kindergarten after 9/11, who were 'lost' without parents being able to pick them up, and about our schools that had no plan in place to
best care for the students until parents could get there. (In New York City , this was days, in some cases!)



He stresses the importance of having a plan, that's agreed upon within your family, to respond to in the event of a terrorist emergency. He urges parents to contact their children's schools and demand that the schools, too, develop plans of actions.



Does your family know what to do if you can't contact one another by phone? Where would you gather in an emergency?

He says we should all have a plan that is easy enough for even our youngest children to remember and follow.



Aviv says that the U. S. government probably has in force a plan that in the event of another terrorist attack, will immediately cut-off EVERYONE's ability to use cell phones, blackberries, etc., as this is the preferred communication source used by terrorists and is often the way that their bombs are detonated. Remember the planes all had to land??



How will you communicate with your loved ones in the event you cannot speak? You need to have a plan.

If you believe what you have just read, then you must feel compelled to send to every concerned parent or guardian, grandparents, uncles, aunts, whatever and whomever. Nothing will happen if you choose not to do so, but in the event it does happen, this particular email will haunt you..."I should have sent this to...", but I didn't believe it and just deleted it as so much trash!!!

What do you think??

Well... http://www.snopes.com/rumors/soapbox/juvalaviv.asp

However, whether true or not it's food for thought for sure!

Actually, seems that the snopes piece (who btw is nothing more than a husband and wife team doing research mostly from their home) more or less supports who this fellow is.

Never the less, the point of all this is to not take the security of our country for granted, and to discuss having a plan, if the unthinkable should happen. Plans don't take too much effort, but they could be invaluable should you need to implement them.

What would you do in the event of an attack, and you could NOT get hold of family and friends?????

I didn't know who did 'snopes' till now... maybe I should type that in to see if that claim is true! haha I have been taking their reports with a grain of salt lately anyways... they are part of this gigantic web of information that has very little quick checks and balances for truth.

As far as the subject matter... exactly. I never really thought about communication without phones but that is really good thing to think and plan out maybe. Seems to me back before the Internet, computers and electricity they did things like that... "if you don't hear from me go to your uncles house and stay there till you hear from me" kind of thing.
