Hey, slackerx/ramsey/ricardomath . . . perhaps it is you don't wish to address/discuss what would be a controversial topic/issue about Israel . . . so here is a topic that can't think would be controversial -

Snow in Israel . . .

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snow_in_Israel

Snowfall in Israel is uncommon but it occurs sometimes in certain parts of the country. In January and February 1950, Israel experienced the largest snowfall registered since the beginning of meteorological measurements in 1870. 

The snow event began in early January 1950 with a hailstorm in Tel Aviv and light snow in the mountains of the Upper Galilee and Jerusalem.[1]

On January 27, it began to snow in the northern mountains and Jerusalem. It piled up but quickly melted. A cold front spread throughout the country and snow began falling in the mountains of Samaria and the West. On the 28th it snowed in Haifa and piled up to a height of 15 cm. Even in Tel Aviv, snow fell for several minutes.[2] On January 29, it snowed again in Haifa, blanketing most of the city in white.

On December 13, 2013, 40–70 cm (16–28 in) of snow fell in Jerusalem and 1 m (3 ft 3 in) in the Kefar Etzion area. Warmer parts of Israel received heavy rains, causing floods. Although it was the Sabbath, the railway into Jerusalem ran for people stranded by blocked roads.

Roads were closed in Israel by deep snow and flooding. Storm clouds prompted Ben Gurion International Airport to shut down, forcing US Secretary of State John Kerry to cut short his meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah to return to Israel before roads and airports were out of service.

With the snowfall of 2013 lasting a bit . . . makes me wonder if there were and or are some cross country skiing fans in Israel . . . would have been a great time ta get some time in doing that . . . 

Do you know if it say gets cold enough for long enough that maybe it might be viable to set up some sort of complex and do man made snow . . . 

I don"t care.

Feel free to post to somebody who does.

Why yes it is, slackerx/ramsey/ricardomath . . . thus the question to you concerning immigration and Israel . . . and if you don't wish to address a controversial topic concerning Israel . . . have offered what should be a non controversial topic about Isreal . . . i.e. snowfall in Israel . . . 

Of course if there is any other topic/issue concerning Israel you would prefer . . . feel free ta name it and will see if I can address it, lad . . .

Pardon, slackerx/ramsey/ricardomath, etc. . . . but I don't engage in your known games - be that as it may . . . it is very simple - throughout the thread you seemed keen to discuss topics/issues concerning Israel . . . and now all of a sudden it seems you've lost interest in addressing anything about Israel . . . if that is the case just say so - that you no longer wish to address anything about Israel . . . or if you wish at some later date to discuss some topic/issue concerning Israel - just let me know . . . and will engage at that time . . . anyway, be well, lad . . .
