I thought if Sunday is a day-off because god has it when he created the universe as in genesis. We atheists say, genesis is another story to serve personal and certain people interests.what about the day-off? sunday for christians, friday for muslims, saturday for jews, now it's a weekend that consists of two days in certain countries.If my weekly day off became from religious origin I don't want it. but then i thought can i work 7 days a week? In today's economies and industries it's hard to…See More

Thank you so much Fadi, for the update on the Gaza Shite - I actually don't think many people know the history of Gaza, as in the blog from Gaza -

Without even a shred of legitimacy, on 2 November 1917, the United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary, Arthur James Balfour, promised the leaders of the Zionist movement they could establish their national homeland in Palestine, violating my people’s right to self-determination.

There were even right wing Prime Ministers in that time, who did not want Palestine handed over the Zionists. There were even talks of setting up a Zionist state In Australia, which would have been a lot better, but it said it in the frigging bible, about Israel being the homeland, and such crap. This really does my head in. 

Australians should go back where they came from and give the country back to the Aboriginals, and white Americans should leave and go back where they came from and give the land back to the Native Americans, if we are all to follow the same premise. America pours billions into Israel, while they stop essentials getting in with embargoes, and this is alright with the world????? 

Why is this happening now? The elections are coming up in January - Netanyahu is putting fear, and wants to make everybody think he is big and strong, and what a big penis he must have to stand up to these terrorists - that is what it is all about, while the Zionists are forever taking over, and building illegal houses, but no matter, it is their right - it says so in the bible.

Hi Fadi, all of those scripts make TA work. It's the main reason why TA is so fast and has 99.9 up time. Me personally I feel the no script add-on can make people a little paranoid. I used to use it just like you, but I just had to give it up for all the annoyances it caused.
