Israeli army veterans in US train up for self-defense

While politicians are working on peace in the Middle East, a Jewish group in the US is preparing itself for the worst. Thinking they may be attacked, they train intensively in military skills and survival methods.
Three men are taking part in a military exercise similar to those in the Jewish state of Israel on American soil. However, they aren’t soldiers – they are Jewish American civilians.
Now they are part of Kitat Konenut New York – a non-political, non-partisan team of freedom-loving Jews and all Americans that teach preparedness against terrorism and natural disasters. The group encourages its members to become legally armed and express their second amendment rights.
Kitat Konenut New York is run and trained by veterans of the Israel Defense Forces and incorporates elite Israeli fighting skills. They train out in the woods with semi-automatic weapons and knives, learning and practicing martial arts and first aid, because of a core belief that “terrorism is directed against Jewish people all across the world,” believes Yonatan Stern, founder of the Kitat Konenut New York.

The label 'Jewish' militia is pretty scary.
It should be an American militia, made up of americans from all beliefs and backgrounds, defending the sacred Constitution and People.
Imagine what would happen if other labels start appearing - 'Chinese' militia, 'hindu' militia, ' Ben and Jerry's' militia, 'BP' militia, etc, etc, etc.
