4. #1 Tova
This is a front, a lie, and propaganda, " the best in the fields of science, technology and medicine. " Your contribution overall is very small, and frankly, we could quite comfortably do well without your TINY contribution. Go away!
(12.19.12)

9. 4. Heaps of land
You go away buddy. You have 22 arab countries and countless muslim ones. Take your crap with you to the desert and go away. Jerusalem does not mean anything to you or to anybody in the West. Your issue is to strip the Jews from their identity. You know that, I know that and you know that I know that. This is why it hurts you most.

You actually have no idea what you are talking about. Israel does contribute top technology to the entire world. They are number 2 behind only Silicone Valley of the United States in terms of ABSOLUTE technology production and they crush on a per capita basis. Isreal also develops more technology than ALL of the European countries. One could also claim that much of the tech coming from Israel is also extremely impactful (i.e. antivirus, encryption, cell phone tech, computer chips, oh, first missile defense of its kind, Iron Dome which intercepts home made rockets and not ballistic missiles is amazing. Honestly, I could go on and on. I'll just leave you with one more point, Europe is starting down a path of higher risk, less profitability, and many countries which drain the constitution of the EU. Trust me, Europe has many problems of its own and I can assue you, the technology that comes out of Israel is not a TINY contribution, go read a book.

11. #5. Israel massively appreciates Judea/Samaria.
#5. You speak for only a tiny, and every shrinking, far left minority. Israel massively appreciates Judea and Samaria. Both because Judea and Samaria are our more than 3,500 year old ancestral heartland. And because they make Israel viable, as any kid capable of reading a map can see.
Chaim ,   Israel   (12.19.12)
12. To single out Jews, only because they are Jewish, and to...
demand of them, and only of hem to limit their living space on earth for that reason is nothing short of a form of racism anti-Jewish racism. Sadly, the Obama administration hasn't learnt the lesson and continues to single out Jews, only because they are Jewish, expecting of them not to move in and reside in certain parts of their homeland and even in the capital city. One only wonders, would Obama apply the same toward black Americans and tell them the Northwest Washington, DC is out of limit...?? No, he wouldn't and shouldn't do such thing. By the same token, the occupant of the Oval Office has no moral or legal right to tell Jews that they are not welcome in parts of the capital city of the Jewish people of more than 3,000 years!!

13. Who wants to live in the occupied territories anyway?

16. Barak, you owe the people big time
After years of suppressing settlements you must now become a champion of them, in order to redeem yourself of past behavior and attitudes.
Steven Zeluck ,   San Francisco   (12.19.12)

Son Of Cyrus ,   UK   (12.19.12)
19. #4 Bitching about #1 Tova
Annonymously brave; The only very small and TINY entity seems to be your comprehension and ability to accept fact Per Capita Nobel prizes winners and contribution to science and humanity is a fact. Jew may not be racially superior, but certainly more driven and dedicated to achieve. Put that in your head and mull over it
Tambour ,   eilat   (12.19.12)
20. 1700 rockets on Israel
1700 rockets on Israeli 2 million citizens does not affect peace process but building in or capital does? we saw less condensation from all the countries on Gaza during the last 8day war. And now everyone submits essays to UN on our construction permits. I guess it hurts them to see the Jewish nation Multiplying. The only thing United about the United Nations. is the unity against the smallsmall country of Israel.
YoC ,   NYC   (12.19.12)
21. Amen
The PM says “we’re going to build in Jerusalem” and we all say Amen.
Can   (12.19.12)
22. Building homes will lead to peace
When Israel asserts it's human rights and builds homes on our land, this is what brings peace. Building homes for Jewish families is what will keep the prospects of peace alive. The moment Israel continues it's path of appeasment is the moment we forgo any chance to have peace with our Arab neighbors.
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (12.23.12)
23. yasher koach! Netanyahu, Be strong
The Jewish people be strong! Hashem is the wind in Israel's sail. we will govern our own country with out the interference or approval of foreigners. we will protect our borders and will not seek foreigner confirmation to do so. we will plant, we will build neighborhoods, subdivisions, highways, schools, hospitals, universities, libraries, courts, police departments, and all other necessary components of OUR civilization. we will not be afraid of sanctions, threats, or terrorist tactics. we must continue to have confidence.

24. Real estate / Property development NOT "settlements"
Folks this is real estate / property development! the term "settlement" is a major misnomer. "settlement" also detracts from the goal of real estate development which is tied to economic development, urban planning, transportation infrustructure, and sustainbility. its time for Israel to create and implement a robust sustainable development infrustructure to make it EASY to build communities and promote mixed land uses, protect the environment, and build an infrastructure, including roads, drainage systems, water, sewerage, and public utilities.
