  1. Fromz 1517 to 1917, what is today Palestine, and that was stolen by the J people, along with much of the Middle East, was ruled by the Ottoman Empire.

    So we should return the land to the Ottoman descendants, which would be the Turkish or the Iranians

  2. Hi i feel for the 3 indigos' women that are missing and the families wanting closure, but in the the first and second would wars 27 thousand Canadian soldiers were never found so are we expected to search the 25 percent of of Europe to give closure to those families

  3. I agree .I feel sorry that these indigenous woman and there families. But I don't agree spending all that money that it would cost to try find there remains. They might not even be there.also isn't the goal to find there remains. I don't think finding a small piece of bones or teeth etc is going to help them get closer. They probably won't even find that. Its a real unrealistic undertaking there asking for

  4. So, Marwan Barghouti is accused of being a terrorist and a murderer. Funny thing, so were TWO Israeli Prime Ministers: Menachem Begin (Irgun), and Yitzak Shamir (Stern Gang). Israel doesn’t want peace. Israel wants the Palestinians to disappear. “Ours, all ours, all of it! Ours, ours, ours. We don’t share, we don’t mingle much. We build walls and special roads to settlements that are internationally considered illegal (including by Canada – for now).

  5. Most of the world's population supports Palestine and Hamas because the world is with negative-minded people without knowing that one day the negativity will backbite and will be heavy on good people. Politicians never think about the future of the country. They like to pass the period of their time.
