Hey, you have to love the British with their stiff-upper-lip-and-bad-dentistry attitude! But has inadequate dental care stopped them? I think not! Proof can be found in the new book by Stuart Laycock (an especially great British surname), “All The Countries We’ve Ever Invaded; And The Few We Never Got around To”, where he comes to the conclusion that at one time or another in its history, Great Britain has invaded 90 percent of the 200 countries in the world!
HEBRON:A soldier from the Arab Legions for Palestine wearing a British-made helmet and holding a British-made Enfield rifle, throws a grenade to the Israeli positions in May 1948 near Hebron while his army comrades shoot. As independence of the state of Israel was declared, 14 May 1948 at Tel Aviv, Arab forces from Egypt, Syria, Transjordan (later Jordan), Lebanon, and Iraq invaded Israel on 14 May 1948.
