It's Earth Day! (Or it was, yesterday, in futuristic Australia!) So plant a tree!

Have a tree planted in your behalf in an Israeli Air Force base and help strengthen Israel + Israel satellite map which is composed of three satellite images that were acquired by Landsat 7 at an altitude of 705 kilometers and were processed by computer.

Why stop at one? Plant ten trees!

Have 10 Trees planted in your behalf in an Israeli Air Force base + receive an Israel satellite map which is composed of three satellite images + receive a flag of Israel + 3 Israel-USA Lapel Pins + Israel Flag Cap.

The green movement always claims to be apolitical. Letís see them support this bold environmental initiative!

How much does it cost to have one planted in the skull of an Arab terrorist?

But that's the Jews for you, always planting trees to climb up and leap off, in order to surprise their natural prey, the bagel, by coming at it from it's one blind spot.

Jihadis hate trees because the tree's superior intelligence causes feelings of inferiority and therefor 'humiliation' in our swarthy friends, and we all know where that leads. More trees = more Jews and less Arabs, it's simple maths people! And they say the middle east is complicated.

Trees! Why is it always about trees? THey've alreaddy got Arbor Day. There's a lot more to the Earth than trees, my friends. Like leeches and volcanoes and wuicksand and feces and belching sulfer and radon, and the Earth sucks.

You're an idiot

I'm getting pretty worried about that doggone wuicksand. I don't know what it is, but it sure sounds ominous. (Maybe it's the residue left after Saddam dried out the Marsh Arabs?)

wuicksand is very common, if you had done a wuick search on google, it would have answered your wuestion.

I celebrate Earth day the same way every year -
I get drunk and start fires.

Good times, good times.

Must be using one of those WWERTY keyboards...

If my memory serves me, the standard syllabus at Saudi schools in the US includes the charming notion that one day Muslims will rise up and slaughter the Jews. Even the the trees will shout "here's a Jew!" so that none will escape.

So, given the crucial role of trees in the ultimate extermination of the Jews , surely the Palestinians must be queueing to plant them on Israeli Air Force bases.

Those ten-tree packages must be really moving.

(Disclaimer: The following is humor) So, we're supposed to pay to help the Zionists camouflage the airbases they illegally built on occupied land? The following was an attempt at humor, predicting the leftists' response to this)

Apparerently legendary Israeli spy Eli Cohen
got the Syrians to plant a distinctive
kind of tree near there hidden missile bases
which made them stand out like sore thumbs.
Inspiring stuff.

"Or it was, yesterday, in futuristic Australia!"

Since you guys are a day ahead of us, could you give me the lottery numbers I should play? How about stocks that will go up or down??

(Sorry for poor attempt at humor. When I saw the 'futuristic Australia' phrase I couldn't resist!)

Stuart, I believe it was eucalyptus trees (hey, there's another Australian tie-in), around Syrian positions on the Golan Heights. I was there in '86 and can attest that the slope was mostly barren, and the stands of eucalyptus did indeed all surround what had been Syrian positions. Very conspicuous, even now. The story was that Cohen convinced the army to plant the trees to give troops shade in the otherwise exposed environment. Don't know if it's true, but a good story ....

Is Israel-Catalog.com/Tal-Shahar LTD, a legit company or a scam?

I ordered a tree planted and having the certificate sent to my home, giving complete adress and full credit card details as required; when the order confirmation page came up a complety strange address was given:

John Haworth
32 Stanhill LaneO
swaldtwistle Accrington
Zip: BB5 4QF
State: Lancashire
United Kingdom.

That's not me! I'm living in Sweden, and my name is not John.

I have to say this is a rather amusing way of pissing off a leftie. Helping the enviroment and helping the Israelis at the same time...

Should we expect a column by Andrew Bolt (pusher of a "greens sometimes equals nazis" meme) denouncing the Israeli government as turning into the nazis they once were persecuted by?
