Wednesday, November 1, 2023
We have ended up in the depressing situation that we are now as Europe surrounded by wars and military conflict. It is obvious that the attack by Hamas against Israel was horrific and outright evil and that it is clear that Israel cannot exist if Hamas also exists.

The question is ‘who supports Hamas’?
