Registered: 18 August 2011
A native of the Netherlands, now retired. Before that I was an independent 'snack-food' consultant - prior to that export marketing manager and before that an international agricultural commodities trader in the USA where I worked for Multinationals such as Bunge Corp. New York, NY (VP)
Studied agri-economics at the EHS, Rotterdam - I am a keen reader and I am most interested in the history of Israel prior to 70 AD as well as modern day Israel. I have visited Israel twice and I am most impressed by the accomplishments of the Israeli people. I am a Protestant Christian and a strong believer that the Bible is 'G-d inspired' Though it may sound conservative I have serious problems with some fellow Christians who are trying to 're-write' or re-interpret the Bible, such as the ones who are 'proclaiming' the 'Replacement theology' This in my book is utterly un-Biblical and very misguided.
I do enjoy music (both classical and jazz) and do some painting (very much an amateur) I am happily married for almost 45 years and have two children and five grandchildren.
