...a delegation of Israeli journalists who were going to 
Amsterdam next week for an educational seminar on the Dutch 
political system.

Thus began the machine-translated message : "Helloh bud, Enclosed 
five of the questions in honor of the foreign minister: The 
mother your visit in Israel is a sleep to the favor or to the bed 
your mind on the conflict are Israeli Palestinian, and on 
relational Israel Holland." The journalists also inquired "What 
in your opinion needs to do opposite the awful the Iranian of 
Israel?" Apparently the translation tool used confused ha'im, the 
Hebrew word for if, with ha'ima, which means mother.

Factual note:  haima means 'the mother', ima means 'mother'.
