  1. Assalam walaikum broeder Henny,
    het is en zal niet de eerste/ laatste keer zijn dat zionisten hun afspraken niet na komen. Vreselijke wezens zijn ze net als hyena’s harteloos!
    1990 getiteld ‘De politieke realiteit in Israël’ en de andere in 1993 getiteld ‘Het ideologische conflict en de nederzetting’.
    lijk me interessant ik denk dat ik ze gaat lezen
    Wassalam
