  1. Zionist Nation of Israel is not a Christian nation. They may have Christians living there but the Government of Israel is not Christian.

    Besides that, they butcher African immigrants like animals.

    KK fought the Boers in South Africa over Apartheid, the same Apartheid Zionist Government of Israel is doing to Palestinians.

    People should get their facts right.

  2. @Lombe. Please do not comment on the Isreal issues. These issues are beyond us. Yes both sides should respect life and treat each other well. I would not support either side as they both have a role in the issues.

  3. Everything is the will of God is what they say. So maybe these wars are his way of “acting in mysterious ways”? When fighting for independence would prayers without machine guns have worked? Or maybe the machine guns were blessed by God? Just wondering.
