The current conflict in Gaza.I've been meaning to write this entry for some time, but had some WIFI issues that are unimportant right now, so nevermind. What I'm about to say is controversial, and more political than the last time I wrote about my country, but please respect me and this website by reacting in a civilized manner.The current conflict in Gaza. by EvilOpal
