THank you needs to be said to EVERY firefighter. --to those from Israel, to those from foreign countries, to those who were first firefighters and then whatever religion, nationality etc. they are.

ghostq   (12.06.10)
residenses from Israel moved inside Israel the so call east jerusalem just inhabitate it this year, this means nothing since palis think they can be part of Israel, all the funding to his equipment comes from Israeli source, so to be a hero on someother people expense isn't much heroism, more like opertunist.
