Settlement freeze expires; PM 'hopes Abbas will continue honest talks'     Attila Somfalvi
1. WHY EVEN NEGOTIAGE WITH THE WUSS THAT NETENYAHU IS.......
THE PALESTINIANS SHOULD NEGOTIATE WITH THE SETTLERS AND WARN THEM THAT IF THEY DONT LEAVE NOW AND ALIVE THEN THEY'LL LEAVE LATER AND IN COFFINS. THIS WOULD PROBABLY END THE ARGUMENT OVER SETTLEMENTS.
CALI CAL ,   LOS ANGELES, USA   (09.27.10)
2. Palestine Israel is the only option now
...one Country, two States. Arabs must demand the vote. They are fools for not doing so decades ago.

3. Likud needs to stop Bibi's craven begging Abbas to talk.
Bibi disgraces not only Likud, but all of Israel with his craven begging of Abbas to talk to him. Likud needs to stop Bibi. Likud was not formed to beg terrorists to talk to us. Likud was formed to massively settle our land. Likud was intended to be a vehemently right wing patriotic party. It's time to stop Bibi from disgracing us. It's time to replace Bibi as Likud leader.

6. To all the utopians as #1
You are not living in reality. My advice as to #1 take a cold shower and relax.

7. No, why bother with the the so-called
Palestinians, or to be more precise Arabs. They only want Israel destroyed. They do not want peace. They never have and never will. Wait and see what Hashem has in store for them. It isn't pretty, I guarantee, it.
Kayla ,   Florida   (09.27.10)
8. Would this have been possible if Livni,
Barak, Mofaz or any other leftist be in charge? Answer: NO WAY! The opposite would have been true. You should have seen those nitwits from Shalom Achshav begging and pleading. Pathetic!!

This goes for all you anti semitic Bass as well.

10. (New Housing) = (Thriving Economy)
They are not settlements, these are new cities. Israel has a thriving economy. The arabs are angry no one wants their primary export: terror.

12. Ye Olde Golden Rule for #1:
"All ye who typeth thy messages only in ALL CAPS maketh absolutely no sense." Also, how do you figure Bibi is a "WUSS?" Obama aka Pres. Schmendrick, Abbas, Fatah, Hamas, Arab League, Mubarak, the King of Jordan, EU and all, DEMANDED that PM extend the freeze on construction . . . or else!!! Bibi calmly smiled, patted them on the head and said, "Uhh, I don't think so. But thanks for your input." That thunderous sound you heard at 12:01 AM was bulldozers starting up, cement mixers churning, power saws cutting wood, hammers pounding nails and Pali laborers sweating and crying out joyfully, happy to be working and earning some bread for their families again after 10 months of unemployment. You: senselessly fire rockets at innocent civilians, heroically shoot pregnant women Us: build, build, build You lose. We win.

13. Score: obumma-0, abbas-0, Bibi-0, settlers 1, game over.

14. US,EU and Russia too weak now,Israel is now a ME super power
Atleast that is the view of many settlers, that think Obama and Quartet is too weak to stand up to Israel. Unless the left becomes part of Gov. then Netanyahu will never sign peace deal for fear of Gov. failing or atleast put to the US that way or put peace deal to a vote that will fail without a real threat or dangerous if not passed. For settlers giving up Gov. subsidized cost of living and free land is not an option.

15. give back the land you are stealing

18. Honest talks?
Hahahahahahahahaha That was a joke right? Abbas is a well known liar, and honesty is something you will never see from him! Only taqiyah!

This is the proud Jewish reply to Arab deception and theft of land.

20. When PA & Obama agreed to talks without conditions...
When PA & Obama agreed to talks without conditions... they agreed to talks without preconditions. Why are Obama and PA now trying to add conditions. It's dishonest!

21. Now I have expertise in settlements too
Arab settlements have the right to expand anywhere in the world, my backyard, frontyard, kitchen and bedroom. Upon completing my new full one-hour Al Jazeera video course I became an instant expert on the issue of Arab expansionism in the world, which I support wholeheartedly. It is alI true, I only report the way I see it with 100/100 vision from 8000 miles away from Middle East. BLOODYTHIRSTY SCOT GREATEST EXPERT OF TEX-MEX BURRITOS, ENCHILADAS, FAJITAS, MIDDLE EAST, FAR EAST AND NOW HUMAN RIGHTS IN MUSLIM COUNTRIES!!!!!! DALLAS, TEXAS

22. 10 month freeze
we gave them 10 months to come tothe table and talk peace. all the could do is sing thier national anthem :"NO NO NO!!! ITS NOT ENOUGH!!!! NO NO NO!!! ITS NOT ENOUGH!!!" Well the refugees now have to show us Israelis something. Release Gilad Shalit. Agree and recognize Israel as the JEWISH Homeland. Forget the right of retrurn. All you refugees can live in your State should you EVER get one. At this rate.... and with your current national anthem that is not going to happen. Now be good little terrorsists , put on your bomb belts so we cna end this farce once and for all.

23. 10 months freeze
That´s a joke. There was never a freeze. Why you people keep on deceiving a world that is trying to help you since WW2.
Haider ,   Gothenburg, Sweden   (09.27.10)
24. Keep the freeze
Stopping the freeze, even if the freeze was debatable, gives Hamas all the excuses they need to kill peace efforts. Do Israelis really want that?
Haider ,   Gothenburg, Sweden   (09.27.10)
25. What's the problem?...
let them carry on building! and let them become citizens of a future Palestine. I hope Nathanyahu gets so much pressure from all sources that he has no choice to kick out Lieberman and Yisrael Beitenu, merge with Kadima and get on and do what Israel has to do - sooner or later. The current situation is not sustainable and the longer Israel waits, the more difficult it is going to be to salvage anything for the Jews.
jonathan ,   London, UK   (09.27.10)
26. #23 Why shouldn't they build?
The Palestinians have never stopped terror yet you don't hold them accountable. How is giving up land while getting nothing in return a good idea? Is that your idea of a joke? Israel gave back Gaza 2005 and look what they got in return.
Cynthia ,   USA   (09.27.10)
27. #24 Haider
If it wasn't the freeze, Hamas would use the next topic as an excuse, e.g. the so called right to return, or Al Quds also known as Jerusalem. The talks are pretty much stuck before reaching those issues and likely won't even advance to those two details I mentioned, because Abbas is apparently too weak, fears being toppled. No real chance here, so be realistic and BUILD the Land of Israel!
