  1. Yup – “could lead to an upsurge of violence in the region” – that’s all they know threats and violence. Why doesn’t someone convince him to commit suicide?

  2. Does a pack of wild wolves have anything else to dream other than the gazelle and red word of justice to blind? In any sense, the arab dream to dominate the holy land is wrong and will fall.

    Is Israel not making atonement? More guys in white shirts today. I have faith we will.

    Fun.
