Actually, Sparverius, I think that would be ONE-TENTH of two cents worth.

Comment: Hallo!

I am a women from Sweden and I just want to tell you that I have a female
friend from Palestine. She is living here with her husband. He is from another
country, but she is
crying every night and her eyes are so sad.

She can not come in contact with her mother and father in
Palestine because the telefon do not work. She is thinking
all the time on Palestine, and is listen too much on the
news.

I am born in 1948, and that year the jews got their own
land because they did not have one before.

How can they forget? How can they forget how it is to live
in fear, in terror? And why is there secret codes between
USA and Israel?

Common people in small countries can not understand what is
going on??? We are so many that can not longer accept what
is going on?

And my friends tears for Palestine is almost a little lake by now, Asmahah
lake......???

Tell me, what can ordinary people do that can make effect?

This is terror what Israel is putting you through, every day!!!! This is
terror, nothing else.

May God be with you.

Hey snopes, save that letter. If a lake called "Asmahah" ever appears in Sweden, and a UL starts going around that it was formed by the tears of a Palestinian woman, you'll have evidence that it's true.

mythology"

can you defend/attack this comment?

It's hard to say exactly, because 45.2% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

God became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois, on the 12th January 1992. His instructor was Mr Langley, and he taught Him to sing a song. If you'd like to hear it, He can sing it for you.

Who really made us? You fallin' ib sleep in health class again? *sigh*.. Okay, when a man and a women really like each other, they have a way of showing how much they do.It's very.. private. And dirty. But it makes a baby, and in 9 months, Bam! it comes out of mommy.
As for who made god, a long, long time ago, some cultures felt the need to control the population, vis-a-vis fear. The best way to do so was to instill religion in the masses. By promising an afterlife of hell if the basic rules were broken, many people w/i that population were less likely to... oh, say, murder someone. The rulers of this community made god. [Big Grin]

Isaac3159, just so you know, when snopes posts something starting with "Comment:" it means that the following text is from an email or letter that snopes has received. It is not necessarily the opinion of snopes.

(And if you knew that already, please don't be offended, and feel free to hit me with a trout. [Thwack] It just seemed to me, from reading your posts, that you might have been a little confused.)
