As the entire world heard at the pinnacle of the Academy Awards presentation this year when veteran and revered actors Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway showed that their specialty is reading lines, not comprehending them.

- Settlements are completely legal.
- Israel is meant to be in all of the Land liberated in the 1967 Six Days War.
