If Israel were to join the war dont you think muslims would rally for a jihad to take jerusalem again...again. History tends to repeat itself. Its politics...who knows what the fuck went on in diplomatic talks.

  • Three thousand people died in a instant, what kind of person would applaud that? Do you want that person near you, near your children, teaching them, inspiring them?

    What kind of person would applaud death of four hundred thousand Iraqis, do you want that person near you, near your children?

      Dude, your own link to Snopes says that those celebrations were actually TRUE, so you just threw some stones against your own rooftop.

  • misinformed USA citizens... sucking Islamic Saudi Arab dicks (and Saudis sucking American dicks!)...
    Iranians (Persians) -excluding their religion- are the civilized in the broader region.

    • @zAbArAkAtrAnEmIA_TheGreat That isnt saying much..their leader still hates jews. And the Israeli leader obviously dislikes Iran, I cant think of any anti muslim quotes hes spat out but I wouldnt be surprised. The entire middle east is corrupt with religious nutjobs dont be a fucking tool. Lines on a map mean nothing to terrorists. Get that through your misinformed head.

    • @xxraptor660xx You've mistaken the word "Persian". Persians are the majority ethnicity in Iran, however we have many minorities including Turks, Arabs, Kurd, Lors, Balochis, Torkman, etc.
