Israelis and Arabs have been fighting over Gaza on and off, for decades. It's part of the wider Arab Israeli conflict. After World War II and the Holocaust in which six million Jewish people were killed, more Jewish people wanted their own country. They were given a large part of Palestine, which they considered their traditional home but the Arabs who already lived there and in neighbouring countries felt that was unfair and didn't accept the new country. In 1948, the two sides went to war. When it ended, Gaza was controlled by Egypt and another area, the West Bank, by Jordan. They contained thousands of Palestinians who fled what was now the new Jewish home, Israel. Click here to see where Israel is.

Why we have Christmas trees in our homes is not a question many ask в itвs one of the most magical Christmas traditions there is and it happens because thatвs what you do. But when you think about it, for one month of the year, you have a tree in your living room, hallway, dining room or wherever else you choose to deck the halls.

The main problem that makes your concept moot is that the human body can only handle so much recoil before the poor squishy humans that fire the weapons break. And you reach that limit far before you get any practical upshot of using Depleted Uranium (DU) bullets. There exist sub-caliber bullets (tungsten carbide though, not DU) for firearms today, specifically for rifles. A sub-caliber bullet of high density does not pack more of a punch, but it allows the bullet to fly faster, which makes for a more shallow trajectory and shorter time to target, which makes it easier to hit. I have personally seen the Swedish military soldier handbook for sharp shooter rifles Б such as the L96A1 AW Б where the difference between using full caliber and sub-caliber ammunition is shown.

Alain de BottonБs popular article in the New York Times, Why You Will Marry the Wrong Person, 5-28-16, is helpful for becoming aware of possible pitfalls and helping figure out what went wrong. As for me, though, I married the right person 58 years agoБGus. I wasnБt always as accepting or mature as I could have been, but still it worked and it still works. ItБs proof that I married for the right reason, which was because I loved and admired the person Gus is. That has never changed. Also, we share important values: we want to live meaningful lives, we support each other, we know money and fancy reputations donБt bring, and we try to communicate well. Our first activities included listening to music and going for rides in the car. Gus was an artist and I was a musician. I was thrilled
