    Firstly, there is no country called Israel , it’s called palestine . and the most important thing is that “even aside from talking about politics, but talking about rights” even if you say that Israel and palestine are two different places, I think that the Israelian government took our land and divided it into slices as if it is a pizza , but you know the most strange thing that while dividing the pizza, it ate it. so never say “ISRAEL” again coz conqueres are not country owners, and children killers are not human beings.

    I am replying to your above comments, which is not really worthy of a reply, but, I am going to try.
    I was shocked by your ignorance, instead of empty rhetoric, I suggest you come and visit, see for yourself. Israel is NOT a pizza but a democratic country with legal rights for every citizen, male and female.
    We even speak and write English and make use of this terrific websight!

  3. I like the helpful information you provide
    in your articles. I will bookmark your weblog and check again here frequently.

    I am quite sure I’ll learn a lot of new stuff right here!
    Best of luck for the next!
