Ban religious expression on national flags


Expression related to any religious views must be banned from national Flags by the UN. There are many religions around the world and countries must not get to choose which religion they represent. Globalization aims to unite the world but this only leads to separating nations on a religious basis. We can see it in the present world conflicts the US and its fellow allies are involved in. The idea that the nation represents a particular religion is not a tool of unity but one that does the exac...

During the Six Day War, Israel fought a defensive war against three Arab countries. They won the war in six days and were able to push out enemy forces out of the Sinai Peninsula, the Gaza strip (from Egypt), the West Bank (from Jordan), and the Golan Heights (from Syria). Israel kept these lands for security reasons and were right to do so. Now people are saying that Israel should return the West Bank to the Palestinians, when it never belonged to them.

Government is not needed and there are many things to show why....
