Yup, just a very partial list which could go on for pages and pages and pages.
Let the hypocrisy continue...blame Israel and Israel alone...and boycott academics, writers, scientists, and businesses which are in any way associated with this satanic nation!
This list is far from comprehensive, but it serves as a guide to some of the most well-known countries that were conquered by other countries: Gaul was conquered by France, Bengal was conquered by Bangladesh and India, Catalonia was conquered by Spain, Champa was conquered by Vietnam, Corsica was conquered by France, East Pakistan was conquered by Bangladesh, Hawaii and Alaska were annexed by the US, Prussia was conquered by Germany, Rhodesia was conquered by Zimbabwe, Sikkim was conquered by India, Urjanchai Republic was conquered by Russia, and the list goes on and on. Shall we boycott all the conquering countries? I didn't think so! - Michelle
