    Hi all,
    i'm an israeli living in germany, looking for an open forum to discuss mideast politics and the israeli/palestinian issue. This looks like a nice place to do just that...:)

    :welcome:

    This is a nice place to do just about anything you can imagine. Just pay attention to the rules.

    Have I seen you somewhere before?

    Welcome.
    Take time to smell the roses here, but watch out for the fertilizer.
    Although nothing is personal, (except for opinions) VERY opinionated bunch, these people :eusa_shifty: :lol:

    Because I welcome opposing viewpoints as long as they're presented intelligently. Believe it or not, my opposition to the state of Israel isn't accompanied by a hatred of the people who happen to live there. What's it to you?
