Free holidays and stay for as long as you like.
Yes they are free.
Want to go to a foreign country, all your needs provided for and its all free.
Sun all the year round, lots of sand and hills. Take the opportunity while it is free because it may not be here for long.

The Islamic State, spawned by Barack Obama’s premature withdrawal from Iraq, recently filmed the torture of a 14 year old Syrian boy and also seized 500 more children with the stated intention of using them as suicide bombers.
The Islamic State also announced its intentions to enter the U.S. via our forever-unguarded southern border and inflict nuclear sabotage on the United States. They can, after all, remain confident that American Liberals will cheer on such an action and go on defending Muslim fanatics no matter what the death toll is. I’ll never be a conservative but the cowardly hypocrisy of American Liberals toward Islam has made me ashamed that I EVER used to consider myself a Liberal.
