2 things: - the canal was built thanks to white European engineers and sklls - muslims aimed to destroy Israel. But jews are more clever and stronger and have balls

As a person who knows what Israel is doing to the Palestinians i hate everyone who recognizes it as a real country....i cannot believe how people saying that they respect the rights of everyone like LGBTQ and religious beliefs could allow such horribleness. Trash talk me i don't care.

The people from a certain middle eastern tribe who wear small hats have proven themselves to be absolutely awful people historically as well as today. The only reason the west tolerates them is because they have infiltrated our leadership and fed us propaganda for our entire lives.

Why was there a Czechoslovak ship? Czechoslovakia is a landlocked country. Like, really really landlocked.

I did the "Ditch" in a US Navy battle group (Independance) back in the early 80s. The devastation was very apparent on both sides of the canal.

So this video has nothing to do with anything that could ever be called either literally or metaphorically a traffic jam?
