Last night the bullies said "boo"! 7 signs you are a victim

Updated: Apr 9

Stand up to the bullies

That's right, a rocket was fired from Lebanon towards Tsefat. There was a brief siren, an interceptor appeared to have been fired, the danger was neutralized and life resumed. No one died. no one got hurt, at least not by the bullies. Many of us did get hurt by those who call themselves our supporters, sometimes our own family.

How so?

I was woken up late at night by people calling, not to ask how I was, if my family was alright, or even if there was any damage. No, they called to cancel their reservations, without penalty of course. If you are one who called and offered to pay me a cancellation fee which I declined, I am not talking about you, I know you had no choice. I am talking about those who, without a second though, out of a totally irrational fear masquerading as "the responsible thing to do" gave into the bullying and by doing so encouraged the bullies to engage in even more of their despicable behavior and putting us in danger.

It's important to be able to recognize the signs of bullying so that you can take action to address the situation. Here are some common signs that you may be experiencing bullying:

1. Feeling Intimidated or Afraid:

If you find yourself feeling intimidated or afraid of a particular person or group of people, it could be a sign that you are being bullied. This feeling may manifest as anxiety, fear of going to certain places, or even physical symptoms such as stomachaches or headaches. Do you feel uncomfortable going to Tsefat or even to Israel?

2. Social Isolation:

Bullying often involves isolating the victim from their peers. If you find that you are being excluded from social activities, conversations, or group gatherings, it could be a sign that you are being targeted by bullies. Think of Jewish students in Universities

3. Verbal Abuse:

Verbal abuse is a common form of bullying and can take the form of name-calling, insults, or threats. If you find that you are frequently on the receiving end of hurtful or demeaning language, it could be a sign that you are being bullied. Check out some forums and chat groups or listen to what so call protestors say about Israel on the streets.

4. Physical Aggression:

Bullying can also involve physical aggression, such as hitting, pushing, or other forms of physical harm. If you have experienced any form of physical violence at the hands of others, it is important to recognize that this is a form of bullying. Try not to encourage more rocket firing by acting irrationally out of fear

5. Cyber-bullying:

In today's digital age, bullying can also occur online. If you are experiencing harassment, threats, or other forms of mistreatment through social media, email, or other online platforms, it is important to recognize this as a form of bullying.

6. Changes in Behavior:

If you notice significant changes in your behavior, such as becoming more withdrawn, anxious, or irritable, or even changing your plans because of threats, it could be a sign that you are being bullied. It's important to pay attention to these changes and address them.

7. Damage to Property:

Bullying can also involve damage to personal property. If you find that your belongings are being stolen, vandalized, or otherwise tampered with, it could be a sign that you are being targeted by bullies.

If you do decide to come to Tsefat you will find that more than you are supporting us, we will support you!

BTW. Tsefat is still a green city with no restrictions.
