Haters’ new tacic: Calling Israel ‘JSIL’ (Jewish State of Israel in the Levant)

Haters’ new tacic: Calling Israel ‘JSIL’ (Jewish State of Israel in the Levant)

[Ed. – Talk about juvenile.  Up next, presumably: Christian State of the United States in the Americas… To be followed eventually by, what, Pagan State of Danes in the British Isles?  I mean, as we work our way back and all.  The wiser we get in our own eyes, the more blitheringly idiotic our intellectual output.]
