Israel has the legal right to its land based on international law. It also has the divine right on the basis of God’s promise to Abraham and his descendants.

Anyone have a time machine I can use? I need to go back to at least last month so I can put gas in the car.


Freedom of speech means you will hear and read things you don’t like.
