  6. Let me give you a history lesson. Once upon a time there was an idiot named Mohammad and he was hiding in a cave away from his wife. Well while he was there he smoked some hashish and saw an angel (I smoked it one time and saw a big yellow Pac Man) okay back to my story, he wrote down that he saw an angel and went back to his wife. She was about to beat him with a frying pan until she heard his story. She said “you are a prophet.” SHE SAID you are a prophet, NOT G-D! The book he wrote makes excellent toilet paper. I recommend it. Okay I made up the part about the frying pan. G-d Bless Israel!!

  7. Are the moosies the survivors of the "bad boys" of Sodoma and Gomora?.

  8. Run Guo says:

    Peace only start, only after idf kills all those who only obsessed with exterminating Israel. Please do them a favour, start all their eternal sex career this time.

  9. Alex Forsyth says:

    Hit them where it hurts, locate their weapons dumps and blow them to kingdom come and intercept their main supply and the suppliers and send them all to hell.
    This is the only negotiating that these people understand and it's only good manners to show a decent level of understanding, happy Purim everyone, Shalom!
