Roy Keane Hilariously Destroys Gary Neville And Graeme Souness With Harry Kane Claim

  Roy Keane has urged Manchester United to sign Harry Kane and in doing so, he hilariously destroyed both Gary Neville and Graeme Souness on Sky Sports.

Hummer Crashed Into Oba Of Benin’s Palace Wall, Gets Destroyed, But Not The Wall

Yesterday, passers-by and motorists were left bewildered at the scene of a crash in Benin City - the Edo state capital. The crash involved a Hummer 2 SUV that rammed into the wall of the palace of the Oba of Benin. The shock expressed by the passers-by and motorists was not on account of the crash. Instead, it was due to the fact that the impact on the wall by the Hummer left no damage to the ancient palace wall. Instead, the Hummer was severely damaged. Note that the earthen (mud) wall of the Oba of Benin is one of the remaining relics of the old Benin Kingdom. The Oba Palace – together with the ancient Benin moats – is one of the numerous tourists’ attractions to the ancient city Watch the video of the crash

‘Israel Will Be Destroyed In Half An Hour If America Attacks Us’ – Iran

Israel will be destroyed in half an hour if the United States attacks Iran, a senior Iranian parliamentarian said on Monday. Weeks of tensions culminated last month in U.S. President Donald Trump’s last-minute decision to call off planned strikes on Iran after Iran shot down a U.S. drone about two weeks ago. Washington also accused Iran of being behind attacks on ships in the Gulf, which Tehran denies. “If the U.S. attacks us, only half an hour will remain of Israel’s lifespan,” Mojtaba Zolnour, the chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy commission said on Monday.
