    You should avoid huge political statements on these forums. Especially if you have no clue as to how they will be taken.

    There is no such thing as a University in Palistine, therefore you are making a huge statement. Yes, you are being quite politic, which I avoided explicitly saying, for the sake of you editing, but since you persist...

    Since when was Palestine a country. Trick question. Either way, this thread is receiving few hits, and even fewer responses. You're probably better off just reading and highlighting the text, which can be found on this website if you need it.

    Have you actually read any Thomas Hardy? It is absolutely impossible to pick up any of his novels and not noticed all the mythical and biblical references.

    I suggest you actually do some reading.
