    Are these diplomats Israeli? Are there any gentiles in the lot? Will hamas do to these diplomats what hamas did to the gentile north american teachers teaching at the International School in the Gaza Strip? Hamas told the 4 teachers they had to leave Gaza immiediately, could take only a small backpack. Hamas took them to the border crossing, placed the teachers in a little shed between the IDF soldiers at the crossing and positioned themselves behind the shed, within eyesight of the IDF and began firing. The teachers told us the intent was for them to die at the crossing that day — but G-d had other ideas! So, will these 43 diplomats become "gentile fodder in the nonstate tribal arab hate-machine? What do you think?

  2. Whaat nationality are the diplomats?

  3. Defenitely not Israeli… let's see what their countries will do?
