...the world, by starting to abide by international law.
That's not "appeasement", that's common sense.
Not calling the settlements "homes" would be a good start.
Why doesn't netanyahu get up once and for all at the un and tell them straight to their faces that this has become the USELESS NATIONS league and drop dead.There will be no more cooperation with any of their agencies.

Shoula is back, shoula is back, of course she's right and the rest of the civilised world is wrong - Heheh, it took you a while to swallow Obama's win ,...
4. Israelis should only vote for BIBi & Right
The left and center parties in Israel and live in delusions when they believe that a Palestinian state in the West bank will bring peace to Israel. It will only bring missles and many condemnations from the world if we defend oursleves. We need only to vote for Bibi and the right inclined parties to give a message to the world that we do not intend to committ suicide in order for the world to feel sorry or pity for us. Israelis cannot vote for Labor , or Livni or Kadima; Vote for the parties only on the RIGHT.
Tel Aviv, Israel
5. Livni, Mofaz, Lapid, Yachimovitz -be defeated
The opposition parties in the US have no pride or responsibility to Israel. The only care about power to weaken Israel. We need proud and responsible leaders to say No to the world and to be needed by the world through Israel 's innnovation and scientific research. Without Israel, the world would have been so many years behind technologically than they are now

6. Hypocritical world
Right on! Thank you for your wise and well thought article. Enough bending backward to the world! We exist and we should only care about us and protect ourselves.
The world Is not vehemently critical when it comes to Stealing Our Technology!
finally some sense from ynet
9. It's NOT about the world, it's about us!
Israel doesn't have the obligation to satisfy the world's needs!
The appeasers should take that into account because ONE Israeli is worth more than a thousand of the world's International Army of anti Semitic Hypocrites.
Jews have contributed their fair share of blood & sorrow to the International community to satisfy their insatiable hunger for dead Jews
10. #1 tell us
You imply that Israel isn't abiding by International Law. Go ahead, tell us when Israel broke International Law...we're waiting...Oops! Israel follows International Law and you are lying....
11. Wow tzipi I love your sense of democracy
12. Message to the world.
Up Yours!!!!! Enough on picking on Jews. We are more than capable of taking care of our own. We don't need your permission to survive.
Joe Mevorah ,
The UN is a waste if time. Just one big hypocrisy. Occupation in nth Cyprus, the butchery in Syria, the North Koreans etc.. Then there was genicide in africa, and also genicide against the armanians. It seems like they only have one obsession on their minds and that is Israel. They have made no effort what so ever to deal with any real issues ever. Just ignore them. Let them babble.
That message not because the care about Arabs that's because they are afraid of Jewish . The have experienced it
15. To: No. 3
I'm sorry, but do you REALLY think that you are part of the civilized world?
Heh, heh -- I hope you like crow. You're going to be eating tons of it.
By the way -- how much of your disability check and welfare payment are YOU planning to donate to the ersatz "Palestinians?" No one else will give them jacksh*t, so it would be nice to see you put your money where your foul mouth is ....

16. To: No. 1
Here's some more common sense: Israel has had to defend itself in six wars, all started by the Arabs, in which Israel prevailed. Israel reacquired Judea and Samaria in the course of fighting a defensive war against Jordan.
Tough luck to the loser, right? Wasn't that the reasoning for taking away 25% of Germany's SOVEREIGN territory following World War II and ceding the entire Italian province of Istria to then-Yugoslavia following that same war? Equally sovereign.
On the other hand, Judea and Samaria are non-sovereign. Israel's to settle, retain and annex. Israel WILL annex Judea and Samaria, and will repatriate the illegal Arab squatters thereon to Jordan, country of their citizenship. That, by the way, constitutes common sense.
Surely you do not think it a good thing for there to be ONE set of rules that apply exclusively to Israel and ANOTHER set of rules that apply to everyone else. Do you?
If so -- why? Do you also think it is a good thing to appease a terrorist rabble? Give in to them, then where will it end?
I'll tell you where -- take a trip to Malmo; see what it has become. That's what happens when you give in to uncivilized rabble.

17. Absolute truth! Claim Judea/Samaria with total determination
The author writes the absolute truth! Moreover, there is no doubt that rendering Israel defenseless is the intention of the U.N. and it's evil resolutions. It always has been. The U.N. is evil.
Now is the time to stop playing games. No more pretending the terrorist P.A. are "peacd partners". No more pretending we're willing to recognize Fictional Palestine. It's time to claim Judea and Samaria with total determination. And prepare concrete transfer plans for "Palestinian" poseurs.
18. oh give me a break
"International law" states that Israel has to give back the land they l;egally took in the 6 day war. Land that was takedn becasue when it was in arab hands, it was used to attack Israel. Israel unilaterally left all of Gaza, and all that happened was it becaem Hamastan and lots of rockets were shot at Israel, and then when Israel struck back, the world condemned it. See little dolt from Sweden, the world wants Israel to be helpless and weak. The laws passed by the U.N. General Asembly are al in favor of arabs, so it's not at all fair to Israel. Sweden is just another anti Israeli country in Europe, so why don't you get lost, you maggot
19. Isreal is the peace of the world
it pain me to see the world pitching its tent against isreal but more when isrealis and jews join them. I want isreal to seek the face of God and not of the world in building at E1.

21. @1 - they are not 'settlers'
Jews lived in pre-state Hebron, Jerusalem etc. These are Homes. And there were Jews in homes there before the state of Israel. The problem has been Israel's terminology around "settling the land" which has Biblical connotation. They are no more 'settling' Israel than Americans are settling the American midwest.
Also - most Arabs that currently live in Israel, WB or Gaza - are not indegenous. Many of them are Egyptian, as denoted by their last names "Masri" etc. Yassar Arafat himself was born in Egypt. To summarize - these are homes. They're not 'settlements'

22. You are right!
However there is one main reason that the Jews living in Europe not liked in those European countries: Is it true or false but they are being accused of interfering with social and political affairs of those countries
23. take this article viral
for the whole world to see, so that in the end all will know the truth.
24. #1; Judea& Samaria always Jewish
Thde settlements are in the Jewish home. The Judea and Samaria hills which are also called the West Bank by the Jordanians belonged to the Jewish people for thousands of years; Did you read the bible?
King David and Saul and Solomon were in Hebron and Jerusalem and Jericho and Betlehem and Shechem; King david was born in Beth-lechem and the Jews had kingdoms and their capital in Jerusalem and Hebron before there were Arabs, Moslems, Christians or the newly created people called Palestinians. Look at the archelogical findings found all over the West bank and Jerusalem. there is no any archeological finding of any other people or nations. Only JEWS..
25. #1 - Gunnar, Which international law are we violating?
THANK YOU!!!!! You have spoken the absolute truth!!!! I could not have said it better! 100 % spot on! I posted your article on my face book page!
excellent and right on point!
29. Israel #1 to Gunnar
Yes! We want Swedes to tell us how to defend ourselves after centuries of being butchered for being Jews. Now we have our tiny country surrounded by fanatics, but Gunnar in Sweden is not please with us. Well, Gunnar, we have decided that we will no longer march quietly onto cattle cars, as much as that might upset you.
30. The Conflict of the Ages
Israel continues to be the attracting lightning rod for the forces of good and bad. Doesn't it seem strange how the EU will ignore 11,000 missles fired at Israel from Gaza? But the EU will condemn Israel the very MOMENT that it retaliates to defend itself. Doesn't it also seem strange that the EU would focus on the minute details of Israel's infrastructure to condemn Israel for building settlements? This is the Conflict of the Ages continuing.
