I don't think that sort of stuff 'happens everywhere'
I'm not saying europe is sunshine and rainbows but I doubt you will find soldiers crushing people to death with bulldozers.
Who do you think gives IDF the money to buy weapons/bulldozers etc? it's the taxes, by buying israelli products you are indirectly giving money to the israelii govt.
And btw would they simply expel the palestinians and close their borders, I wouldn't say a thing, it's this sick state of affairs where they bulldoze people and try to shadily acquire land while playing the victims is what irks most europeans.
Passive cooling, especially of an i7, is bad news if you live around here, southern europe.
"you could just put a fan in front of it and problem solved. " or you could simply design a system with liquid cooling or any kind of cooling that doesn't require air vents etc
