Salam Alayk readers :)

I got something great to share with you ^~^

Last Thursday, my friends and I went to a great debate conducted by MUSRA. The topic for the debate was very appealing : "Is Israel an apartheid state?

The hot debate started at 1.05 pm and ended at 3.00pm. Alex (represent the Palestinian) and Simon (represent the Israeli) were the speakers for the debate.

ALEX:" I've been to Israel and also Palestine;- it was like two different world and it makes me sick to know that behind those walls, lots of Palestinian are oppressed every single day. They need to go through all those ridiculous check points in order to travel from one place to another.
Pregnant women were forced to give birth at those checkpoints due to the restriction from IDF(Israel Defense Force). That is their land!"

Simon turns to give his speech.


SIMON: " I would like to stress here that Israel is not an apartheid state, we are a democratic state that practice peace and harmony. Unlike South Africa Apartheid, Israel is a state where people can go to the movies, swim at the beach, learn at schools, go to the universities etc. Statistics show that 80% of Palestinians are happy to live in Israel." *Like seriously?*

Alex: "The statistics?
Huh, for heaven sake they love to live there because its their land!"





Based on the two speakers' point, I can conclude that ALEX has more points compared to SIMON in debating the issues. I was amazed by the spirit of these youngsters (Alex and friends) defending the 3rd sacred land of Islam, despite they are defending it for the sake of humanity and demolish racism. It makes me realize that if the non-Muslim can be so supportive to defend Palestine, how about us?

Max Brenner is an Israeli chocolate shop chain. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Strauss Group, Israel’s second-largest food and beverage company.Max Brenner chocolates are marketed as "Chocolate by the Bald Man."


Max Brenner was founded in 1996 in Ra'anana, Israel, by Max Fichtman and Oded Brenner who combined their names.The business began as a small shop selling handmade chocolates. Oded Brenner had spent six years learning the art of chocolate-making in Paris. By 1999, Fichtman and Brenner had opened ten chocolate shops. In 2001, the company became a part of Strauss Group.



"I've been there once. I never knew that this shop support Israel and yes, I admit that the chocolate here is delicious." =_=' How I feel guilty right now.

Max Brenner operates chocolate boutiques in Israel, Australia, Philippines, Singapore and the United States.In 2010, a new Max Brenner restaurant and chocolate store opened at Ceasar's Palace, Las Vegas.In 2011, another branch opened in Boston.

According to the founders of Max Brenner, "chocolate is not just about taste. It’s a symbol of different aspects in our lives - of romance, of sensuality, of decadence. These aspects actually create the new chocolate culture of Max Brenner."In 2009, Max Fichtman explained the philosophy behind his chocolate enterprise: "Chocolate to me is European so the restaurant is part Parisian cafe. Then I added some 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. I added spices from all over the world that we use to create our chocolates. And then part of it is like a lab - like a drugstore."

Max Brenner chocolates are certified kosher by the Nazareth Rabbinate.*See how obvious it is?*
