We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

Help us grow and continue telling Israel’s story to the world.

Thank you,

TRY ONE YOURSELF>>> Age: 30 Residence: Lagos, Nigeria Married? With children? Not yet Occupation: Research Consultant Education: Masters (Economics) Pets: Platoon of German Shepherds! Religious affiliation / observance: No Religion. I just follow Jesus everywhere My history (100 words max): Spent most of my life in Nigeria. I grew up knowing there was a better way to live. I'm neither right nor left, just straight. I respect Efim's view on wars, but I believe wars every now and then will be necessary. It remains the price of our collective freedoms. Forget the book-sellers, not everything can be negotiated! Interventions by 'good people' will be necessary from time to time to save the oppressed in other lands. I love life, I love art Family history (100 words max): From ancient history, our people descended from Saudi Arabia. Migrated to this part of the world My connection with Israel: 'Jeshurun' is tattooed on my right arm. 'Jerusalem' is tattooed on my back, printed also on my SUV's spare tyre in the back. (Do the love math!)PLEASE DON'T DIVIDE JERUSALEM! What I would take with me to a deserted island: A Bible. Hygiene things. A good rifle If I could have dinner with any person in the world it would be: John The Divine What angers you: Ignorance that won't stay quite. I mean, if you know nothing, say nothing (read: Ahmadinejad!) What makes you happy: (Sigh). Just caught up in quiet prayer. It's pure Heaven! Last book I read was: "Mountain Climbing & Other Near-Death Adventures" Comfort food: If it tastes good and it's light. I eat basically to survive. It's not a serious event for me My life five years from now: Touring the world, having a strong influence to change some things You may not like it but I have something controversial to say: Israel should not negotiate an inch of territory. The Arabs need to seek Israel's favor. Not the other way round! Secondly, Arabs are a race of people, Islam is a religion. Let us separate both, so we understand their world better Happiness: 1-10 (10 being the happiest) 10 Click here to leave a message for David TRY ONE YOURSELF>>> Meet all 'About Me' participants
