1. Yemenite Jews Must Save their Families by Escaping to Israel
Linda Rivera ,
This is a deeply disturbing article. I am saddened by this article, i hope these letters are traced back to the sick person who created them and is dealt with accordingly. Such hatred and Judeophobia is totally unneccessary. If anything, Yemenite Jews residing in their homeland of yemen are some of the most outspoken critics of zionism. Clearly some delusional extremists in the arabian peninsula don't understand that and continue to spread conspiracies.
3. hard to fathom why they won't make aliyah
4. Perscution of the Jews
Any chance of a serious article anwering the question as to why so many nations throughout history persecuted the Jews?
Is it possible to answer this question?
Perhaps having the answer will show the way to obviating any future persecutions.
Surely it must end sometime?

5. I'm Amazed - What Are They Doing There?
Boy, I'm surprised. I thought all the Yemeni Jews were already here. You learn something new every day! But, I'm not surprised at the threats against them. Just typical tolerence from the religion of peace. But they expect tolerence from everyone else, right? I would bet you the few Yemeni Jews are not supporting terrorists or blowing up buses.

7. Yemenite Jews
Make aliyah while there is time. The House of Judah is coming back......next, the House of Israel/Ephraim will be joining you.
8. Neturei Karta are Wrong Again
Mr David Wiess of Neturie Karta Claims that the Jews in Muslim countries live in peace. Here is proof That Neturie Karta are wrong and Liars.
don't be too shocked. it is a known fact that in all arab regimes and countries, jews have never enjoyed peace and being citizens on the same level as their muslim neighbors. many were denied government jobs or any jobs in the high echelons of society be it medical, political economical or educational. most of these jews runnig to israel in fear of these arab regimes are a testimony to the way arabs treated jews in arab countries everywhere. just sit and ask a jew from marocco, egypt, syria, iran, yemen, lebanon, lybia, iraq, jordan etc... how and why they RAN to israel! they'll be more than happy to tell you the horrors and suffocation they suffered in these countries. over taxed, over punished, put into slimy dirty ghettos, etc.... and fearful of practicing judaism. synagogues in these countries were constructed with enormous walls and only small windows in the very upper top of the building so others won't see the jews in prayer and victimize them. this is but one example of their fears in addition to many many persecutions. my parents and my friends' parents jews, came from such countries and were only too happy to leave in droves.
why are you so disturbed about this incidence in yemen. didn't you know it exists for us in arab countries? you are not naive are you?
don't be silly, jews living in arab land and especially yemenite jews are some of the most religious jews in the world. they practice it more than aschenazi jews!!!! for you to say that yemenite jews are the most outspoken critics against their land israel and against zionism is utter bull. show me one article in which a yemenite jew has voiced these opinions....not an arabic article, though because we all know how arabs switch the truth for propaganda purposes. a legitimate article with foot notes, etc... from a legitimate source please!

Is it maybe because there so few of them compared to everybody else? Those poor people haven't had rest nor peace for 3000 years, and it just seems that they are and have been the target of every bully that's ever come down the pike through the millenia. Some don't want them to live in their countries and some don't want them to have a country of their own. I think, the world has a major problem of some sort, when 14million Jews, who mostly try to mind their own business and have contributed so much to mankind, can turn so many people into raving maniacs and killers.

12. #2 Haifa in Palestine?
If you claim to live in Palestine, than you must refer to Gaza. It is obviuos that this is a provocation. And by what you are stating is, that only Jews who are against Zionism are good Jews. You are still a rascist.
13. Moshe from Monsey
I used to live in Haverstraw, for a short amount of time while moving around New York...
I remember the tight jewish communities around there, and knew that it was ultra-orthodox, but wasn't sure that it was anti-zionist... What's the real story there? I also read something about Joels "something" also being anti-zionist.
I always defended the orthodox community around there towards some of my non-jewish associates who spat the usual anit-semitic crap. But were they right when they would tell me that those "people didn't even care for Israel"? I never though it to be true.
14. Palestinian - Don't be such a hypocrite
Saying you are disturbed is not good enough. Do something. Sell your home to provide money for these people to be settled elsewhere.
Is there a Yemen embassy in the PA? Go there to protest. Immolate yourself if necessary to draw attention to these innocent peoples plight!
How am i a racist? Because im living in my homeland?? Well sorry for not clearing out of here and giving my house to a zionist. I suppose i should also thank you for around 60 years of massacaring my people and razing their homes? And no, im not trying to provoke, just express my opinion (the one good thing about this zionist system). And yes, jews against zionism are good jews but there are also some good zionists no doubt.
16. SEND THEM ENOUGH MONEY SO THEY ALL CAN LEAVE
17. Apparenly, it is as difficult for a Jew to live in the Saad
a region as it is for a Palestinian to live near a settlement.
18. #14; How can he sell him home?
It was probably built illegally and he probably doesn't pay taxes, water and electricity bills.
19. You think these are delusional people?
There is no state of Palestine. That was a British name.
Israel is the name. here and forever.
20. Jews have only asked for peace.
Arab only wants pieces. Please, take your disengenuous opinion elsewhere.
21. Delusional Micha
Yeah, the land Israel sits on is as "Israeli" as the land Turkey sits on is "Turkish."
Israel was established AND DISSOLVED per biblical definition, by metaphysical (divine) influence. Trying to invoke religious claim is specious since you're basically violating the divine expulsion. Not very Jewish, that...
Micha, please take your blanket, racist statements elsewhere. Not ALL Jews are piece loving (you need only look at Kach and the horrid hatemongering groups they've inspired for evidence of that), and not all Arabs are violent Jew-haters.
In fact, it's black-or-white attitudes like yours that continue to prevent any sort of accord. You'd make a wonderful fundamentalist Christian.
23. Persecution of yemeni Jews
I am sad to read about the situation in Saada. I lived and worked as a nurse in Saada for nearly seven years many years ago. I knew many in the Jewish community in the surrounding villages. I attended a Jewish wedding there and have pictures of the event. I had nothing but happy friendship with these people. I am sure that it is time for ALL the yemeni Jews to return to Israel. G-d Himself said He would not leave any behind. While choosing to stay in 1948 they now have another opportunity to leave. I pray that the Israeli government will offer a way to allow them to leave and return home to israel.

24. To Paul from Austin
You are an authority on nothing - please don't come to a modern, English-language Israeli daily site and lecture about "divine expulsion". It's unbecoming of you. Also, I was born and raised in Austin, and pretty much left because more and more weirdos like you were sprouting up. There is no Palestine, look at a map.

25. Palestinians also persecuted by Arabs
Palestinians not allowed to own land or open a business in Saudi Arabia without a sponsor.
26. Delusional is when a people vow to kill
kill kill. Arab groups have for a long time now vowed this against the Jews.
I don't give an opinion based on fluff. I give it based on facts.
Jews have been persecuted by Arabs for a long time now, even before Israel existed as the modern state it is now. The only delusion is the clouds in which you, Paul, live and where many arab minds currently reside.
Please get some help for you and your family. It's very important. Otherwise, please do not bother with your conjecture. Thanks.
27. If they do not want to make allyah
stay there and face the consequences.

28. #27 Jason, it may not be as easy..
Asking to get a passport to move to Israel, they could be imprisoned by secret police where they believe they are israeli spies.
It isnt as easy as in America or etc to get a passport to move to Israel or even to America. As well as poverty, it isnt easy to pick up your entire family to move to another part of the globe when they are already in poverty, how would they successfully move?
They would either have to be smuggled out or negotiations with Israel and the country.
29. Y jews r persecuted
lets get real. the only, ONLY reason jews are persecuted is because they won't believe in anyone elses god except their own,and thanks be to Adanoi.
