If Egypt were really so interested in promoting peace it could take back its colonialists from Gaza

As you wish. No need, but there’s no need to concern yourself with feeding them, either. Thanks to Obama, Russia now owns them. Let Putin play the part of Joseph.

Stoli’s made from wheat. It’s wheat concentrate. And if Muslims have a problem, let them make non-alcohol Stoli, just like they have in Israel with beer.
