See how those dogs like it, maybe blow up Riyad’s airport or something big.
Did you see the threads about the explosions in southern Lebanon? There was a terror attack by Israeli terrorists on a perfectly peaceful Hezbollah baby milk factory. A large quantity of baby milk was sympathetically detonated by the Jewish bomb.
The Mossad. Those b*****ds!
Mosaad is untethered by BiBi as opposed to the appeasing p.o.s. olmert.
