The American Muslim Political Coordination Council (AMPCC):
American Muslims utterly condemn what are apparently vicious and cowardly acts of terrorism against innocent civilians. We join with all Americans in calling for the swift apprehension and punishment of the perpetrators. No political cause could ever be assisted by such immoral acts.

Important PSA regarding depressionLook, even if their history was not the greatest, do not ever ever ever give them depression.Important PSA regarding depression1 day ago in Personal More Like This
As said. Maybe they were in several wars. Maybe they live more up north. Nope, not a legit reason. Even worse is when they have fake depression and are all about being emo and cutting.
Instead of making them depressed because of their history...
Do research on how their wars/conflicts/etc actually AFFECTED THE PEOPLE. Don't assume that just because Russia sold Alaska to America, that Alaska has this crazy "OMG U LEFT ME!!!!!! BAW!!!!!!!" scenario. Don't assume that just because they've been in several dozen conflicts with each other, that either an Israel or a Palestine would be emo cutters that hate themselves. Research on how bad the impact was, and if the impact still lingers! I mean, Hawaii got over Pearl Harbor. New York got over 9/11. Mexico got over the Alamo.
Instead of making them depressed based on stereotypes...
Do some more research on actual people from

-He cannot stand being called a terrorist. Like, not at all. In fact, he actually does want peace with Israel, like the majority of his people.
-Food that he enjoys include hummus and pita, falafel, kanafe, Mansaf, and Makloba. A lot of other favored dishes tend to include rice or lentils. He also greatly enjoys fish.
-He also maintains a Halal diet, and when eating somewhere else, always checks if the food is ok for him to eat.
-Fariq enjoys playing soccer from time to time, and is actually not bad at it.
-Originally, he was a polytheist, like his father. However, after being conquered by Arab tribes, he has converted to Islam.
-He is a bit prideful of having the third holiest monument in Islam, the Al-Haram Al-Sharif, built by Abdel Malek ibn Marwan (he also takes his middle name, usually reserved for the father's name, after him).
-Fariq is more i

2. They don't fight all the fucking time! It's like insisting that Israel and Palestine are at war with each other, and they're not. They're just in a conflict.
3. It is most certainly NOT love/hate. Hell, it's hardly hate.
Three misconceptions about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, everyone.

-Although same-sex marriage isn't official in Israel (yet), homosexuals still are heavily protected by law, and have much more freedom than in any other Middle Eastern country. For this reason, Yael is quite proud of her pansexuality.
-Yael is very poor on the road, not only because she screws up a lot, but because she's one of those people who constantly honks horns and yells at everyone's screwups. Besides her own.
-Israel seriously loves falafel, and other typical Middle Eastern food, such as Shawarma, Baklawa, Malabi, and Tabouleh. She also enjoys the food brought from immigrants, like Ruggelach or Shnitzel.
-She has a surprisingly healthy diet, and has a fondness to Israeli salad.
-As much as she tries to hide it, she has a serious weakness for limonana (lemonade with spearmint)

1. Do you sleep in your bra?
Yes, of course I sleep in a piece of clothing that fucking messes up your chest and hurts like hell
2. Do you like noodles?
I've had them once or twice, I guess they're ok.
3. Do you enjoy drama?
Bitch do you think that I enjoy this!?
4. Are you a girly girl?
Well, I do wear a little bit of makeup, and some jewelry, but I'm not that fashionable, to be honest.
And I also don't really do girly activities. Unless, you know, volunteering with the army is feminine.
5. Small or large purses?
Small's a little more practical.
7. Are you short?
No, I'm actually fairly average.
8. Do you like somebody?
9. Do you care if your socks are dirty?
Oh, joke's on you.
I don't wear socks!
10. Do you like Halloween?
Whenever Alfred drags me around, I suppose it's ok. But I still prefer Purim. It's not as creepy.
11. Favorite time if the year

Natalia Voren, History of the Twenty-First Century, Chapter Three: Eurasia – The Fall of Russia and the Rise of Europe
It is important, before moving on to consider the downfall of Smythe, to deal with the history of the rising superpower, the European Union, which in the twentieth century had been a free trade area as well as an opponent to the intra-European conflict that had dominated the first half of that century. By the beginning of the twenty-first, it was consolidating its power, with a series of treaties that gave its parliament and council oversight over individual nations’ law making. To join the union was cons
