    Hollywood personal security companies said that requests from Jewish stars and those in the entertainment industry have definitely increased following the Hamas terrorist attacks in Israel that resulted in the deaths of more than 1,400 Israelis.

    New York City and L.A.-based Global Threat Solutions CEO Kenneth D. Bombace told the Hollywood Reporter that they have "had a sharp increase in requests from our Jewish clients. They're afraid they could be a target."

    He noted that his company provides real-time "geofencing" data that alerts clients "to an assault, to shootings, even hostile social media posts" in the area. Bombace - whose list of clients includes stars and billionaires - said "We provide detailed reporting on protests that could potentially turn violent - and where they are in relation to where our clients' offices are."

    A recent report from the Anti-Defamation League Center on Extremism showed that in the two weeks since the Hamas attacks, a total of 193 antisemitic incidents have occurred in the U.S., 77 of which were directly linked to what is happening in Gaza.

    The ADL report also noted that, of the 400 plus anti-Israel rallies in the U.S., 109 featured explicit or strong implicit support for Hamas or violence against Jews in Israel.

    "Obviously they're scared," President and CEO of the L.A.-based World Protection Group Kent Moyer told the outlet. He said his Jewish clients are requesting guards be armed and also be available for "graveyard shifts."

    "We've been on a hiring rampage," he added. "I just sent an alert out to all our clients that there's a Palestinian protest on Saturday down in Pershing Square. I've also advised them that [U.S. and Israeli] embassies and consulates around the world, and mainly in the Middle East, are the sites of massive protests."


    Moyer - whose client list includes multiple celebrities and 11 billionaires - said in all his 30 years providing personal security he's "never recommended clients get a gun," but that's now changed.

    "But I do now, 100 percent," Moyer said, adding at the bare minimum, "All elderly people and women should carry pepper spray. I just think this is going to get worse. The situation is escalating."

A majority of Americans still believe in OUR 1st Amendment guaranteed Freedom of Speech; however, at what bold point does the constitutional right to Free Speech becomes unabashed anti-Semitic Hate Speech, and while it should possibly be tolerated on our college campuses, and on the streets of mostly Sanctuary Cities, these events should be rightfully observed and scrupulously monitored ... or, not? What is your true opinion of when too much of enough is just too much, or not?
  The answer to Free Speech I don't agree with is more, and incredibly robust Free Speech.
  There is a point when Free Speech becomes counter productive to sustaining a peaceful society.
  Free Speech should only be tolerated if it represents the status quo of the highly educated orthodoxy.
  Early in life, I learned to speak only when I am spoken to.
