Kingmaker advocates giving up the West Bank but wants to retain Jerusalem. Think that it would entice those peaceful Pali's? No mention of the 67 borders. Same crap in a different wrapper. I laugh every time I see that 67 borders thing. They hauled asz and left the Israelis to be slaughtered.

I think they should be aiming for the 2067 borders, they may have a peace deal by then.

It's all show and no go while they are divided. I wouldn't make peace with the PA while Hamas was free to be the spoiler. They need to unify under the banner of negotiating a final solution that makes everyone happy, otherwise, they have popcorn farts

We are not as crazy as I thought. Our elections are over with 34 parties participating in the votes. Sounds pretty bad except if you look at another Middle Eastern country, Jordan. The elections are on the way with not fewer than 60 parties. Sick area very sick area. Its all Englands fault, we took their system. Shit.

The Egyptian election is still going on even though the vote was held last year. I guess if you don't like the outcome, you just riot until enough people die to force a no-confidence vote because the administration can't control the population.

Do you suppose this guy can read the shirt he's wearing?

It was Baron Nathan Mayer de Rothschild (1840-1915) who once said: “I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the British Empire on which the sun never sets. The man that controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.” What was true of the British Empire is equally true of the US Empire, controlled remotely by the London based Elite through the Federal Reserve System. Judged by its consequences, the Federal Reserve System is the greatest con job in human history.

A reliable little bird reported to me that a few days ago an underground nuclear facility in Iran got blown up and about 240 scientist died and the whole thing is in shambles. Wonderful news but no real cross confirmation from any other source, yet. Oh those Mossad boys and girls sure work in many mysterious ways. Go Mossad go!!!!!!!

Are you suggesting wishful thinking on Uzi's post? He has been known to spread undocumented "facts" in the past. But, you must remember that Iran is tight lipped about anything negative of their ability to remain the greatest thing since hummus. They are the masters of propaganda and if it suits their purpose, like blaming the U.S. or Israel for sabotage, they will say so. Only time will tell if uzi's bird is reliable. Something of this magnitude can't remain a secret for long. Don't hold your breath for confirmation, though. It just might be a sh!t-bird.

Did you know where hummus came from? We had this discussion ad-nausea in this thread when we had a few Palestinians here who take credit for everything good. You hate it, I hate it, but these people would slit your throat for a bowl of it. Check it out.

http://humus101.com/EN/2007/05/04/hummus-is-i...

>Most Israelis, and many people around the world, believe hummus to be an Israeli dish. On the other hand, when they want to eat good hummus, most Israelis will go to an Arab hummus place. So how invented it? Who does hummus belong to?

If you’d tell a Syrian, a Palestinian or an Israeli Arab, that hummus is an Israeli dish, they will probably laugh at your face. Hummus is eaten all over the middle-east, and is a part of the traditional Arab kitchen. There’s no way it was brought here by European Jews…

This does sound reasonable, although chickpeas are known to man for at least 9000 years. The Greeks loved it and the Romans made various dishes with it. Technically, the first documented use of chickpeas to make hummus is from the time of the crusaders, and it took place in ancient Israel.

True, the use of chickpeas to make a traditional dish called “Hamitz” was mentioned in the Talmud, some 700 years earlier.
There’s even a theory dating hummus invention around 1000BC, claiming it was mentioned in the bible.<

And the beat goes on.

Know what you call 26 Egyptians killed after a guilty verdict (none of them defendants)?

A good start.

Find anything interesting on your business trip?
