A day after Israeli planes bombed targets in the Gaza Strip following rocket fire at southern Israel, Hamas blamed Israel for the latest escalation, demanding it be forced to meet ceasefire agreements.

  • Islam is a death cult. All Muslims are brainwashed from birth to believe absurdities.

    I do not believe any Muslims. I do not trust any Muslims.

    Until the cult of Mohammad has a reformation, the world will be plagued by Muslims.
