Israel’s daunting task

The ferocity and speed of the current international assault on Israel has left the government in a daze. Statements from our leadership are marked by confusion. This reaction is understandable. Everywhere Israel turns it is met with hostility.


Turkey — which just a decade ago was Israel’s most important regional ally – has taken a leadership position next to Iran in the Islamist and global assault against the Jewish state. 
Under President Barack Obama’s stewardship, the US has joined the international bandwagon against Israel. Ireland – never a friend — is now openly siding with Hamas against Israel. And as Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu noted on Wednesday evening, Britain, France and Germany and the rest of the Western democracies calling for Israel to end its blockade of Hamas-controlled Gaza’s coast are effectively arguing that Israel should give Iran – which controls Hamas – a seaport on the Mediterranean.


The footage of the IDF’s celebrated naval commandos falling prey to an Islamic lynch mob on the deck of the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara on Monday morning serves as a perfect simile for the national mood. The commandos boarded the ship armed with paintball guns expecting to be greeted by hostile, but non-violent humanitarian activists. Instead they were accosted by a murderous mob. 


Similarly, the Israeli public feels that when we go out of our way to show our peaceful intentions and nature to the world, we are greeted with an international lynch mob. Rather than listen to us, the world shouts us down with mendacious propaganda in act after act of political theater. 


In a situation when everything seems hopeless and futile, it is important to take a step back and consider what stands behind the assault. Only by understanding why what is happening is happening will Israel’s leaders be able to formulate a strategy for navigating the country through the current straits. 


TODAY’S GLOBAL campaign against the Jewish state is the product of three recent developments: The waning of traditional Arab power relative to the waxing of non-Arab Islamic states including Iran, Pakistan and Turkey; the concomitant rise of anti-Semitic incitement throughout the Islamic world; and the US’s attenuation of its ties with its allies generally and the US abandonment of its support for Israel specifically. 


Since the fall of the Ottoman Empire in World War I, Arab states like Egypt and Saudi Arabia have been the widely recognized leaders of the Islamic world. Over the past several years, their power has diminished and it is now being overwhelmed by the rising non-Arab Islamic states Iran, Pakistan and Turkey. 


Pakistan – so far the only Islamic country with a nuclear arsenal — is the home base of the wildly popular al Qaida movement. Despite its nuclear and jihadist cachet, Pakistan’s ability to challenge the power of Arab governments is limited. Its financial dependence on Saudi Arabia, its strategic ties with the US and the ongoing war between its government and the Taliban/al Qaida have all rendered Pakistan – for now – unable to compete with the Arab world for the mantle of Islamic leadership. 


But Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal has helped place Iran on the verge of regional domination. Iran’s long-held nuclear aspirations only became realistic when Pakistan shared its nuclear and ballistic missile technologies with the mullocracy. Iran’s nuclear weapons program is the stick it now wields to coerce the Arab world to bow to its will. 


Iran isn’t all about threats and coercion though. It also offers the Arab world an attractive carrot. Since the US invasion of Iraq and even more forcefully since the 2006 war between Israel and Hizbullah, Iran has taken the lead in fighting the great enemies of the Arab world: the US and Israel. 


In 2006, the Arab masses rallied to Iran’s side as Israel fought its Shiite Arab proxy to a draw in Lebanon. Hamas’s willingness to serve as Iran’s Palestinian proxy has given Iran complete control over the most active fronts against the hated Jews.


Since the radical Islamic AKP party took over Turkey in 2003, its leader Prime Minister Recip Erdogan has presided over the thorough brainwashing of the Turkish people. According to repeated polling data, the majority of Turks believe that Israel and America are demonic, murderous nations that kill innocent people for entertainment.


Erdogan has cultivated anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism for two reasons. First, doing so enables him to divert his people’s attention away from his government’s economic failures. Stirred into frenzies of hatred, the Turks willingly rally behind their leader who is saving them from the Jewish and Yankee beasts.


Then there is Erdogan’s goal of reasserting Turkish regional dominance and reclaiming the lost power of the Ottomans as the leader of the Islamic world. His decision in 2006 to be the first world leader to host Hamas terror masters on an official visit after their victory in the Palestinian elections was a clear bid to win popularity for Turkey among the Arab masses. 
Iran and Turkey understand that attacking the Jewish state is the fastest route to the top of the Muslim world. 


For decades two things limited the salience of Jew hatred as a political force in the Muslim world. First, Israel’s reputation as a regional power deterred Arab states from attacking it. And second, the US’s Middle East policy of rewarding states that lived at peace with Israel and spurning those that did not made attacking Israel a less attractive option for most Muslim states. The likes of Iran and Syria were punished for their support for terrorism and their refusal to make peace with Israel. Then too, Turkey’s rise in prominence in the US in the 1990s owed a great deal to its close strategic ties with Israel. 


Israel’s reputation as a regional power was diminished by its 2000 withdrawal from south Lebanon and its less than stellar performances in the 2006 war. 


As for the US, in the year and a half since Obama took office he has fundamentally restructured US foreign policy in a manner that rewards US enemies at the expense of US allies. From Honduras and Colombia to Britain, Poland, and the Czech Republic, to Japan and India to Israel, Iraq and Afghanistan, Obama has treated US allies with contempt and hostility. At the same time, his
repeated bids to woo US adversaries have rewarded the leaders of Iran, Venezuela, Russia and others for their aggression. 


Israel of course is the US’s most threatened ally. And Obama’s treatment of Israel has been uniquely shabby–and dangerous. Guided by his ideological worldview which argues that US support for Israel is the root of the Arab and Islamic world’s animus towards the US, Obama has advanced a policy of punishing Israel and wooing its worst enemies that has radically changed the Islamic power calculus. By seeking to appease Iran and Syria for their aggressive behavior and by courting an ever more radical Turkish regime, Obama has humiliated Egypt and Jordan that signed peace treaties with Israel. In so doing, he has convinced the Arabs that the only way to retain and expand their power is by attacking Israel.


THIS BRINGS US to Israel’s current quandary about how to respond to the international campaign against it. Israel of course can do nothing to change the potency of Jew hatred in the Islamic world. It can also do nothing to change American behavior. For as long as Obama is president, US foreign policy can be expected to remain on its current trajectory. That is, for at least the next two and a half years, the US will continue to play a destabilizing and hostile role in the region. 


What this means is that Israel should adopt a strategy that minimizes the international lynch mob’s ability to get close to it and maximizes Israel’s ability to knock the mob off balance. 


Take for instance the UN Security Council call for an independent investigation of the Mavi Marmara incident. Israel rightly rejected such a UN inquiry understanding that its aim is to diminish Israel’s sovereign right to self defense. On the other hand, on Thursday morning Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman offered that Israel could establish its own judicial inquiry and that there was no reason for international investigators not to be members of the Israeli committee.


This idea is ill-advised for two reasons. First by its very nature, a judicial inquiry would place Israel in the role of criminal defendant. And second, given the nature of the international assault on Israel, no international observers or investigators can be given any role in investigating the Mavi Marmara episode. 


In contrast, Israel could benefit from a domestic investigation of the operational and diplomatic aspects of its handling of the Turkish-Hamas flotilla. It is in these areas – rather than the legal areas – that Israel has failed and must learn the lessons of those failures. Moreover, appointing a committee would buy Israel time in the face of the anti-Israel campaign now sweeping the globe.


And as to that campaign, it is time for Israel to launch a counter-offensive. Its representatives at the UN should demand an investigation into Turkey’s illegal sponsorship of the pro-Hamas flotilla. They should raise such protests at every UN forum and continue to protest until they are thrown out of the meetings and then return, the next day to relaunch their protests.


The Justice Ministry should issue international arrest warrants against the flotilla’s organizers and participants and prepare indictments against them for trial in Israeli courts. Israel’s embassies throughout the world should call for their host governments to outlaw organizations involved in the Gaza flotilla movement.


No, these Israeli efforts will not change anyone’s vote in any UN forum. But they will place these wholly corrupt institutions on the defensive. For decades Israel has taken for granted that the UN is hopelessly hostile and left things at that. Israel’s willingness to declare defeat has emboldened UN officials. By putting them on the defensive, Israel will force them to devote time to staving off Israeli attacks and so have less time available for initiating new assaults against Israel.


IN LOS ANGELES on Monday, a crowd of Muslims carrying signs calling for Israel’s destruction gathered outside the Israeli Consulate. As they shouted Allahu Akhbar, a lone Jewish high school student carrying an Israeli flag appeared on the scene. Suddenly, the protesters forgot that they were supposed to be demonstrating against the State of Israel and began threatening this single Jewish boy who held his head high and waved the Israeli flag. 


As they converged around him, a cordon of policemen headed them off and surrounded the young Jewish boy who refused to be intimidated. Speaking to reporters, clearly moved by his courage, the boy said, “I came out because I want to defend Israel.” Asked if he was affiliated with any group, he responded, “Just Judaism and Israel.”


Israel’s task is daunting and the stakes couldn’t be higher. But our cause is great and it is far from lost.

    And now this up today in the American press:
    A few bits from the piece read as follows:
    JERUSALEM – Israel vowed Friday to keep an Irish aid ship from breaching its blockade of the Gaza Strip, setting the stage for another maritime showdown as the vessel made its way toward the impoverished Palestinian territory…A spokeswoman for the Free Gaza Movement, Greta Berlin, said Friday evening that the ship, the 1,200-ton Rachel Corrie, was 110 miles (177 kilometers) from Gaza and was expected to reach the seaside strip by Saturday morning…Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Cabinet on Thursday night that the boat would not reach the territory. On Friday, Israel’s foreign ministry said the policy had not changed…The fallout has increased pressure to end the embargo that has plunged Gaza’s 1.5 million residents deeper into poverty and sharply raised Mideast tensions at a time the U.S. is making a new push for regional peace…Netanyahu has instructed the Israeli military to avoid harming the passengers on board the Rachel Corrie, a participant at Thursday night’s Cabinet meeting said. He spoke on condition of anonymity because the meeting was closed.
    My question is this: How can the IDF not harm passengers if any of those passengers proves to be physically threatening? Why did Netanyahu make this promise?

  • neshamala 06/04/2010 at 15:22

    Caroline, I laughed so hard the tears rolled. You and the ‘gang’ are the greatest. “We con the world” is just what we all needed, to put things in perspective.
    About Daniel, the one lone Jewish Hero in LA; he was amazing, and had more guts than the entire Israeli Government. We are all waiting for our Moshiach. Shabbat Shalom.
    Wishing you continued hatzlacha, siata d’Shmaya, and maybe a premiership???!!!

    Israel’s task is daunting and the stakes couldn’t be higher. But our cause is great and it is far from lost.
    And you have a great video! Keep it up.

  • Marcel 06/04/2010 at 15:51

    Why limit Israel’s offensive ?
    Israel got to this point by retreating from Gaza and South Lebanon.
    The Road Map surrender talks must be derailed and Judea and Samaria anexed and Gaza removed as a threat.
    I think by then the world will understand that Israel means business and any more appeasement is out of the question.
    Remove every singly appeaser from office and start criminal proceedings against those Israeli’s who aid the enemy in any way.
    STOP BEING SUCH AN EASY TARGET,A PUSHOVER and maybe the world community will focus on getting Sudan’s Muslim President Omar Hassan al-Bashir to the ICC for crimes of genocide against the people of Darfur and on Syria for the assassination of Lebanese P.M. Rafik Hararri.
    Get rid of the wimp,apologetic israeli politicians who always bow their heads to Washingtons dmeands.
    They are why Israel is such an easy target.

  • 06/04/2010 at 16:12

    Well said.
    In addition, Israel needs to begin now planning as if the US will behave just as treacherously as Turkey has done with the flotilla. Past friendship cannot be relied upon in international affairs when societal values begin to crumble, as they are now doing in the US. We Americans are increasingly depending on Uncle Sam for material needs, for which we are increasingly willing to make liberty take the back seat.
    Israel will prosper the more she takes the offense on her own and pursues what is legally possible against her enemies promptly and forcibly, like the LA boy’s courageous behavior.

  • cliff 06/04/2010 at 16:39

    What a wonderful spokesperson and advocate Israel has in Caroline Glick–fearless, articulate, and courageous!
    This article reminds me of the statement by Mary Baker Eddy, “It requires courage to utter truth; for the higher Truth lifts her voice, the louder will error scream, until its in‐articulate sound is forever silenced in oblivion.”

  • DaveP 06/04/2010 at 17:20

    What I found inexplicable is that the Israeli command made their troops land on the “peace” ship one at a time, as they abseiled down a rope. This handed all the strategic advantage to the ‘peace’ thugs who proceeded to beat the soldiers with metal bars, one at a time, as they landed on deck. Its a surprise that they were not all killed. How could officers allow such a thing to happen – they are supposed to be professional soldiers.
    Now it can be countered that the Israeli command was expecting ‘peace’ activists. But this operation by the ‘peace’ thugs was not some thing that happened out of the blue. The operation was well known to all. Why were the Israeli security agencies unaware that the ‘peace’ activists were just a front for the serious ‘peace’ thugs on board. The whole operation by the ‘peace’ thugs should have been riddled by Mossad agents – that is their job.
    Another thing – why was Israel insisting that the ‘peace’ ship dock at some Israeli port. Are they not aware that Islamic ‘peace’ activists have a penchant for converting commercial airplanes, trucks, cars, and even cycles, as suicide bombs. Imagine the devastation, if the ship was loaded with explosives, and made to explode while at an Israeli port. I mean, is the concept of turning a civilian ship, airplane or truck, something that has yet to be deployed by the Mujahideen, and is therefore a novelty? Is the entire Western world, Israel included, lost its senses?
    Israel should not allow any such ship, particularly from the enemy side to come anywhere near an Israeli port. If any such ship approaches, it should be warned, and if it fails to respond to the warning, should be sunk. This much should be made clear to one and all, so no one can claim that they were unaware.

    Caroline, I’m a Christian friend and fan in Florida. When you are inclined, I’d like to hear your take on why the left here in the U.S. is so anti-Israel. I’ve never been able to understand that. Thanks for all you do. You’re a brave and inspiring person.–Bob

  • DaveP 06/04/2010 at 17:27

    As I watched this young man, appropriately named Daniel, walking calmly, while hundreds of screaming Islamic fanatics bayed for the blood of Israel, I thought of Psalm 23.

  • Marc Handelsman, USA 06/04/2010 at 18:07

    Israel needs to revive its strategic deterrence and use it consistently. Arabs respect brute force, but hold Israel in contempt due to recent strategic blunders. The most effective counter-offensive is for Israel to use its force to protect its interests. For example, when the next flotilla attempts to run the Gaza blockade, Israeli forces should deploy any means to stop invading ships. Israel needn’t worry about what the world thinks, because she’s on the right side of history. Finally, Totalitarian Islam can only be defeated, if leaders have uncommon courage.

  • naomir 06/04/2010 at 19:37

    Like Daniel in the lion’s den, this young man has shown a special courage that we seem to be lacking now. Time to take off the gloves and fight for our existence as we have done in the past.

  • Sadie 06/04/2010 at 20:35

    The continuing leak in the Gulf of Mexico can be said of leaks that occur from the earth, some man made, some naturally.
    The leak that is antisemitism is the same. Sometimes it a slow controlled leak and at other times a gusher. We have entered gusher. This is the culmination of 40 years of academia spewing social equality, the American press is a student of this era and helped elect the poster child in Obama. Obama will hopefully leave office in 2012. It is Israel’s duty to mitigate the damage he has inflicted, will continue to inflict by any and all means necessary. Nothing should be off the table and all options left on. America is also vulnerable {the economy is shaky along with the EU, high unemployment, weak housing market and a damn awful immigration policy}. Add to the mix, a mid term election in November with a very angry electorate and you’ve got a political pinata.

  • Alex 06/05/2010 at 2:23

    When Ariel Sharon proposed withdrawl from Gaza I thought he was right. Now I think it is clear that this was a mistake. The course of the situation should be as follows: Israel lessens the blockaed, which ultimately makes the blockade useless. (This could be made by using the mostly useless UN observers to search for weapons in the approaching ships) Then in a few weeks rockets start reaching Israel. After this, Israel occupies Gaza again and destroys Hamas, slowly creating the conditions for Gaza to develop. After all this, Israel will never again leave Gaza, because the moment that happens another Hamas will take its place. Israel will have to take care of Gazans, even though Gazans hate Israelis. Maybe, Maybe, in many many years, Gazans won´t hate Israel that much and put their energy on something more productive.

  • Terry, Eilat - Israel 06/05/2010 at 4:01

    My only comment is to refer to an article written by Moshe Dann, ”Ehud Barak’s Theatre of the Absurd.” which I just read at Pajamas Media,
    What the hell is wrong with us that we continue to tolerate the collection of bunglers we call our ”political elite”????
    ”Israel’s task is daunting ……our cause is far from lost.” With ”leaders” like this, you must be kidding.

  • Ecoughlin 06/05/2010 at 8:16

    I’m a Christian woman in Florida and I just wanted to let you know that even though our government is behaving so atrociously towards Israel right now, your country does have its supporters. I am one of them. I am embarrassed, appalled and ashamed at the anti-Semitism at work in the world and in the U.S today. Please know that not all Americans share the views of the current US administration. I look forward to the day when Israel will triumph over its enemies and the US will stand by her side as a friend and defender once again.

  • Tal 06/05/2010 at 9:23

    Excellent, cogent and succinct article, as always, Caroline. We are facing rough times, with all the troubles coming towards us at once in a volley of Muslim-Leftist hate fest.
    But that’s ok. As is abundantly clear from the video of that courageous boy Daniel Pereg, the word mob for these people is a compliment. They are wild beasts fueled by animus, racism of the worst kind and astonishing ignorance. They ought to be tamed like the wild animals that they are, cowards ganging up on a lone brave soul.

  • Skip 06/05/2010 at 11:28

    One brave teenager was the entire lone defender of Israel and Jews? Kudos to him and shame to the eveyone else in L.A.

  • fxmeaney 06/05/2010 at 13:16

    Agreed. Israel must go on the international offensive.

  • carol 06/05/2010 at 21:59

    The knee-jerk reaction of the world at large to the flotilla fiasco should leave no doubt in any Jew and Israeli mind that the world at large continues to be rabidly anti-Semitic. There was never any possibility of winning the PR war in such a world; therefore, STOP TRYING. In addition to living by the recipe given by Ben Gurion (:It matters not what the world says but what the Jews do), one should add: If you’ve got the name, you may as well have the game!

  • ACGarland 06/06/2010 at 0:35

    There are many of us yet in the USA who are both appalled and ashamed of the treatment of Israel by our current administration. Shame on us!
    Our president couldn’t be more clueless about the important role of Israel, both politically and Biblically.
    Many of us hope and pray that the damage his administration is presently doing to our nation and its relationship with Israel (not to mention what were once our other foreign allies) will be limited to a single term! How painful it is to watch this all taking place and have people in Israel wonder what has happened in the USA.
    May his administration end sooner than later and someone else with a greater understanding and ability in international matters (and matters of principle) prevail in his stead!

  • michael n alexander 06/06/2010 at 1:01

    I agree with almost everything Caroline Glick said in her article, but I nevertheless think that most of her remarks miss the point. Since the time of its founding, Israel has been in a propaganda war. But Israeli governments and the fellowship of ‘implacable defenders’ of Israel act as though they can ignore everyone but equally committed ‘defenders.’
    Their overriding goal actually must be to successfully reach that vast majority who are neither strongly anti-Israel nor strongly pro-Israel. For an analogy, think of the fact that winning American elections requires winning over “the middle,” or “independents.”
    Winning the “center” cannot be done by using “hot” or coercive language like “terrorist,” even when it is true (uncommitted individuals will resent being talked down to). Instead, it requires calmly proffering the relevant facts and logic that will lead people to believe *they* arrived at most of the desired conclusions on their own volition and using their own intelligence. It requires patience as well as bending over backward to show respect for people who (initially) are skeptical about any particular pro-Israel cause.
    It also requires abandoning reflexive defensiveness, and demonstrating the moral strength to acknowledge mistakes when Israel makes them.
    If a double standard is at work when Israel is criticized, expose the double standard without actually saying “double standard” (it’s a “hot” term, and it often comes across as whining).
    This must be done repeatedly, and in connection with every controversy that swirls about Israel.
    With regard to the controversy over the Gaza “flotilla,” these principles would have required (the following list is not complete): [a] admitting that in important tactical ways Israel botched the raid; [b] expressing sincere regret for loss of life and injury; [c] gently asking whether people who provoke an incident also bear some responsibility for its outcome (e.g., are people who incite a riot, not just the rioters, culpable?); [d] asking whether Turkey also bore some responsibility; [e] re-emphasizing (gently, not defensively) that Israel had offered to unload cargo at Ashkelon and send genuinely humanitarian items on to Gaza, and asking(!)rhetorically what would make such an offer unacceptable; and [f] gently pressing listeners/readers to consider in depth the short-term and long-term consequences of letting flotillas break Israel’s blockade, and asking them to consider whether they could accept outcomes that might inflict grave long-term harm.

  • Brett 06/06/2010 at 11:47

    I just find out about you from the credit in “We Con the World.” The video was the most amazing thing anyone could have done. Thank you so much for your service to the Jewish people and to Israel. You are a very brave and smart woman. Thank you and G-d bless.

  • Anonymous 06/06/2010 at 16:48

    I can’t decide whether this video makes a better parody of the blockade runners as disingenuous terrorists or the absurdity of the Israeli
    government position that they are
    disingenuous terrorists. From your background, your intention was likely the former making this video more than discouraging for peace. However, I’m going to choose to believe that you and the other participants, intended the ambiguity as a comment on pointlessness of these stereotypes and call the video “brilliant”.

  • Anonymous 06/06/2010 at 20:07

    Alex, when Sharon proposed abandoning Gaza, Caroline at that time said it would be a mistake, and graciously emailed a response to me after I also echoed your first view.
    But the ‘world community’ would never approve of reoccupation of Gaza by Israel, no matter how egregious the provocation, and therefore any subsequent developments would never be allowed to see the light of day.
    Caroline, I was wrong and you were right.
    I’ve come to believe the world as a whole countenances salami-tactics toward Israel. So what constitutes the ‘last slice’ which Israelis will allow? And does the average Israeli believe that any other nation will rise to her defense when the chips are down, even when she is in the right?

    Heartfelt compliments to you, Caroline,from New York, for your clearsighted take on Israel’s daunting position as well as giving us something to laugh about with your brilliant satire on the sickness of the world in “We Con the World.”
    The question that really troubles me is why are the Jews so quiet in the face of this? Why did Daniel Pereg have to be a lone brave voice against our enemies in L.A.? Why are there no fervent calls for demonstrations and rallies to shout out our outrage at this blatant and scary anti-semitism and betrayal of Israel and the Jews by the Obama administration and all of the others? I, for one, am just as frightened by this silence as by the rest of what’s going on. I agree with Naomir; we Jews and supporters of Israel need to make our voices heard in no uncertain terms and come out fighting now.

  • Central Ohio 06/07/2010 at 3:49

    The peace ship was trying to evoke Exodus sympathy with Israeli left and the Berlin air drops with the American left.
    The question for the Israeli political and military leaders is how to achieve a political victory in stopping the peace ships.
    I know very little about naval tatics, but could the peace ship’s propellers and rudder been blown off and an Israeli naval ship towed it to Egyptian waters?
    Nobody gets hurt and the Egyptians are the bad guys.
    Blessings to Daniel.

  • rkossover 06/07/2010 at 5:57

    I will be citing this article, as well as work by Barry Rubin and Michael Ledeen, in an analysis of the mess we find ourselves in, to be brought to light y”h, at Blogcritics Magazine. I have to congratulate you on the viral “Flotilla Choir Sings ‘We Con the World'”. Too often the truth can only be conveyed with humor, and your
    Tribal Updates are a nasty (and well deserved) satire on the self-hating Hebrew media we are forced to suffer here. The idiots on Israeli TV need to be slapped upside the head for their stupidity….

  • John B 06/07/2010 at 16:54

    Your assessment of the situation is, as ever, about as close to the truth as anyone can get. Congratulations!!
    Personally I think the powers-that-be in Israel should have been aware years ago that within the foreseable future they would be heading into the range of big propaganda guns, and here we are. I, certainly, was expecting it. Western civilisation is being dismantled from within.
    And further, when one looks at the pathetic PR job that Israel does in many situations (al Dura?)one can only conclude that the rot within western civilisation, and that is destroying it, is fairly deep within Israel as well.
    Perhaps the newspaper editor, who begged Condoleza Rice, now regrets his rather unwary plea for Israel to be raped. At the time I guess he thought things were so far gone that he could get away with the comment. But he did, indeed, show his hand. And that of those around him.
    Israel, you are warned, and have been warned for a long time.
    God bless you Caroline.
