    There are a ton Of stories to put on TJI and CNN puts one on here about an ex Israeli prime minister. Granted I hate to see people go down hill but damn. Is this really news worthy? Now excuse me while I visit a site that actually has something interesting on it 😁

    A perpetrator of war crimes and promoter of terrorism (Irgun era),Gen. Ariel Sharon's legacy is a stain on Peace.
    However I hope he passes away in peace.
