Daniel Bernard, the French ambassador to Britain, called Israel a “shitty little country” and then asked, “Why should the world be in danger of World War III because of those people?”

Shitty Little Country, huh?

Israel the 100th smallest country, with less than 1/1000th of the world’s population, can lay claim to the following

US in Israel.The technology for the AOL Instant Messenger ICQ was developed in 1996 by four young Israelis.

Israel has the fourth largest air force in the world (after the U.S, Russia and China). In addition to a large variety of other aircraft, Israel’s air force has an aerial arsenal of over 250 F-16’s. This is the largest fleet of F-16 aircraft outside of the U.S.


Israel’s $100 billion economy is larger than all of its immediate neighbors combined.

Israel

An Israeli company was the first to develop and install a large-scale solar-powered and fully functional electricity generating plant, in southern

California‘s Mojave desert
.

All the above while engaged in regular wars with an implacable enemy that seeks its destruction, and an economy continuously under strain by having to spend more per capita on its own protection than any other county on earth.

    Israel is so totally not to blame for what is going down. If anyone holds the onus, it is the freaking US and its freaking insatiable demand for oil at any cost. Bernard is a shitty little man, and I bet he has a teeny tiny peepee. 😛

    My friend lives in Israel and I hate it when people assume it’s this tiny worthless piece of land. Bernard can suck my rear exhaust pipe. Why do the French even have diplomats? Because they need them to surrender during war. Ha ha, only kidding. Je t’aime! Parce que noulons tres happy! I haven’t used my French in a while, you see.

It’s just not that black & white. Not because I am taking a stand against. Just because, the issues I face are somewhere in the grey area and to weed through them, I blog. I blog. ~
