If Israel did not exist, the United Nations might not have much to do. Last year the General Assembly adopted 25 resolutions against particular countries. Twenty-one of those resolutions were against Israel; the other four were against Syria, Iran, North Korea, and Burma." - The National Review Online
"Its state of preservation and authenticity is exceptional as a result of its concealment over 23 millennia" Unesco said

Zoabi sparked rage a week ago, justifying in a radio interview the PA terrorists who abducted Naftali Frenkel (16), Gilad Sha'ar (16) and Eyal Yifrah...
...this year include Qhapaq Nan, a vast Inca road system in Peru, and the fossil rich coastal cliff site of Stevns Kilt in Denmark, which offers "exceptional evidence of the impact of the Chicxulub meteorite that crashed into the planet about 65 millions years ago."
