      @noamvardys we don't hate them, how can you be so stupid to confirm that "we all hate them" if Islam wasn't a peaceful religion they will be no Jews today ... Go learn some history. Muslims protected Jews for Centuries !!! Jews and Christians are our Brother ... Our common enemy is the satanist movement of Zionists !

      This is different to sushi salmon, which is left uncured and served raw (only preparation is flash freezing)
      Smoked salmon goes really well with bread and cream cheese. It's often served with lemon. Dill is also associated with smoked salmon.

      @Trap Star1 Of course I did. Don't also forget that most salmons now come from filthy farms, like the Norwegian salmon, the most toxic of the family. So, I hope you are enjoying the toxins.
