After UN vote, Israel to suspend PA funds    Omri Efraim
1. Time to sanction Israel......
......for their utterly selfish and childish behaviour.
Robert ,   Australia   (12.02.12)
2. Good - now Israel should head to the ICC
and bring charges against the terrorist "Palestinians" for their rockets fired on us, for their suicide bombers, for supporting terrorists etc.
Jrebecca ,   modiin   (12.02.12)
3. this article
This article is excellent and these measures were called for long ago. My only reservation is that Bibi and Steinitz go back on them or part of them. This mustn't be allowed to happen. May these moves be the beginning of Israel doing what it has to do for it's own survival, irrespective of 'world opinion' or anything else and no more zig-zagging!

4. D0 you know why most people don't like you?
Because you behave like uneducated and arrogant savages, stealing land that DOES NOT belong to you!
(12.02.12)
5. Why not build in the area E1?
It's not like there will ever be a palestinian state on the ground.
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (12.02.12)
6. 3000 new houses
Bibi build more & more quickly. Do not bring in Arab workers. Do not give them any job, let them rot.They are our enemies who want to kill us. Bibi do not be afraid from anyone. We are strong, intelligent, and the world who wants to sell Israel for their own interest just ignore them. David Ben Gurion Z''L was strong and he would not take any threat from the world. If the world will start to mess with Israel, surely we can also mess with them. No one will dare to attack Israel or make war with us. AM ISRAEL HAI FOREVER. BLESS ISRAEL & THE JEWISH NATION.

Israel won't go to the ICC, to prosecute the Palestinians because they are scared to. They know what will happen..........

Do you have spaghetti for brains?
(12.02.12)
9. Escalation is what your Govt. wants
Escalation is what you will get. ICC here we come.
Lynx ,   Palestine   (12.02.12)
10. The Pals Will Never Get Their Freedom by Negotiating with
with racist war-mongerng Israel. Their only peaceful path to freedom is via diplomatic means such as the recent vote and via the courts, such as the ICC. The Israelis whine, whine, whine when the Pals resist the illegal occupation and colonization with weapons. Then they whine even louder when the Pals resist with diplomatic moves. Get ready for the real loud whining when the Pals take them to the ICC.

11. Netanyahu will back down- watch
Rachel ,   US   (12.02.12)
12. 'bout time
it is about time that the Palestinians begin to pay for their services. We should have enforced this long ago. Well, better late than never.
Larry ,   Los Angeles   (12.02.12)
13. About time Bibi... Well done!
We have only one nation to look towards for support and protection... and that is ourselves! The UN has just shown their true colours.. they resent Israel and the Jewish nation.
Arnold ,   Israel   (12.02.12)
14. #4 the land never belonged to you but Israel existed once!
(12.02.12)
15. The reaction of Israel is the best proof
how important the vote was. Dear Zionists, your end is coming,
Jarda ,   Czech Republic   (12.02.12)
16. To No. 6
I fear your satirical comments will be lost on most talkbackers who, I am sure, will think you are being serious.
Bertram ,   London, UK   (12.02.12)
17. To 6
Shekoyech and amen

THE LAND OF ISRAEL WAS GIVEN EXCLUSIVELY TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AND TO NOBODY ELSE.NOBODY HAS THE RIGHT TO NEGOTIATE IT,GIVE AWAY ,OR TO ALLOW TERRORISTS TO SETTLE IN IT.
GIANITO ,   GIBRALTAR   (12.02.12)
19. to #1
lol, coming from a guy from Australia. You took over an entire continent, committed genocide and the few that are left had to fight over getting back a useless Ayres rock. one finger points at me but three point back at you.
mr Bubbles ,   Haifa   (12.02.12)
20. I Would Not Call This Punisment
I would call this a lesson in independence. If these arabs expect to have an independant country, they need to learn to manage their own finances, not live on handouts.next step: cut power to Gaza so they can learn to make their own electricity.
emanon ,   USA   (12.02.12)

Time to give back the Aboriginies their home, stolen by white colonists from Europe
cassandra ,   London england   (12.02.12)
22. Who are you?
Most people do not like you but they are stuck with buying your oil! Israel will soon have her own oil and gas.
cassandra ,   London england   (12.02.12)
23. #1: OK, so you hate Israel in Austrliastan.
But, Robert, before you condemn Israel for its will to survive, I would suggest that you open the history books and read up on what some might be called the "Aboriginal Genocide" committed by good white folk against the Aborigines, the indigenous people of Australia. Unlike the Palestinians, the native people of Australia didn't blow up buses, shopping mall, youth discos, hotels and so on but the whites butchered them and even experimented on them! Personally, Netanyahu should consider that it is ":good to be right, but better to be wise." There is not possibility for peace (Ishmael Haniya stated quite clearly that "Palestine is the land from the sea to the West Bank of the River Jordan". His aim is to exterminate the Jews/Zionist which some, possible you, probably agree with. As for the money, well why should the Israeli taxpayer pay the debts of the Palestinians? In any case, they want a “state” then they MUST provide at least the basic services for their people. They hate Israel so much let them but electricity from Jordan. I am sure that King Abdullah II will say OK but CASH PLEASE!
David ,   Israel   (12.02.12)
24. Lynx no 9
Screw the ICC and international law. Saying by international law Israel occupying Judea & Samaria, well I will also tell you screw that. The Quran & the OLD & NEW TESTAMENT is the law Jews will not give 1mm of our land

25. Build build build build build
Excellent news!! Build, Bibi, build!! Do not let them work in Israel any longer, they can get a normal job in Ramallah in the shuk and be paid with Jordan Pounds, no more Shekels to arabs!!! Perfect decision to the arab terror race!!!
Marcelo ,   Berlin / TLV   (12.02.12)
26. Responses to: # 1 & # 4
#1: You seem to have a huge lump in your throat. #4: Your question and answer are based on distortions and envy. You are both irrelevant in the scheme of things to come.
Israeli 2   (12.02.12)
27. Finally the sound of reason
Hold their tax payments in order to pay their electricity bill - very good. Now, figure some more wise ways to get our money back from the Pali's.
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (12.02.12)
28. To #4..Do you ever read history?..
And let me add that if we were to determine who this land should be rightfully returned to, the claims would not be limited to Israelis and Palestinians. Arabs should return Palestine to the Byzantines and Sassanids, who should return it to the Romans, who should return it to Jews, who should share it with the Greeks, who should return all Judea to Jews, who should hand it back to the Persians, who took it from the Babylonians, who stole Judea from the Assyrians, who have to hand it back to the Hebrews (Jews), who would then return it to the Canaanites. In this non-exhaustive list, I am not including (retro chronologically) the British, the Ottomans, the Mamluks, the Latin Kingdoms of the Orient (remember the Crusades?) and the Seljuk Turks.
Yonathan haokip ,   sderot, Israel   (12.02.12)
29. And of course, we can build in Jerusalem
Jerusalem belongs to Israel.
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (12.02.12)
30. Israel's reaction, to consider Israel's strategic national..
and security interests before all else, is precisely what the doctor has ordered. The PLO still have a chance: return, now, to the negotiating table and, on the basis of UN Security Council Resolution, 242, begin to talk peace. If you don't do so, your actions will demonstrate how astute, again, Mr. Abba Eban was when he said: "The Arabs have never missed an opportunity to miss an opportunity" for peace.
