2. not good, not good at all
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (02.07.13)
this behaviour is not only immoral, but also counterproductive.
3. What inhuman species we are: they KILL close to 2000 of our
tom ,   tel aviv   (02.07.13)
civilians and we DISTURB their peace... Hague has to get on the case, pronto!
4. Try living within a 10 mile radius of Arabs & 4:30am waking
NearNetanya ,   Netanya   (02.07.13)
up EVERY DAY with the horrible howling sound from their mosques. It sounds like fighting dogs and cats and it is impossible to sleep when it sounds, and it continues for a long time, making returning to sleep an impossibility. The noise pollution, which is daily, more than once a day from this is so loud and obnoxious, seems they just keep buying bigger and bigger speakers so that nobody within 10 miles can live a quiet life and sleep an entire night. I am forced to keep my windows closed every night or I am waken up, and this is EVERY DAY. In the afternoon, again it is heard, but I don't mind it as much, since it is not killing my sleep. Why don't they stop bothering our sleep and we stop bothering theirs? Can that ever happen? I already know the answer, they can make it where I never sleep, at night their fireworks and fires, in the early morning their mosque screaming and then in the day time. Israel should make a law against both of these acts, those of the soldiers here and those of the Arabs (respect should be a two way street)
5. Everyday I wake up at 4:00 am by the cries of the mosques
Yehuda ,   Jerusalem   (02.07.13)
6. Oh Shut Up
Israel   (02.07.13)
I have to wake up all the time from their wailing mosques.
7. Dont believe everything
jango   (02.07.13)
Dont believe everything or infact anything you see coming from Pallywood videos, they have mastered the art of lies and deception.
8. But the opposite is perfectly acceptable
Aviela ,   BinyaminDistrict, IL   (02.07.13)
While this behavior sounds out of line, why is it completely acceptable for the Arabs to set off firecrackers every night, turn the volume on the muezzin up to tilt, leave high-buzzing equipment running 24 hours a day? Maybe a little noise-pollution awareness isn't so bad, after all.
9. @4 If you don`t like the M.E., why not move?
Ken ,   Burma at Peace   (02.07.13)
10. # 3
Al ,   USA   (02.07.13)
#3 you have killed thousands of civilians.
11. Jaffa is just as bad if not worse
Chaim ,   London   (02.07.13)
Arabs cars driving around playing loud music all night , fire works too.
12. Provocation
A Jerusalemite ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (02.07.13)
This is pure provocation. I only hope that the statement from the IDF is accurate: "The incident is being investigated in order to avoid its reoccurrence." Yes the loudspeakers of the Muezzin calling from the mosques is annoying and should be dealt with, but that is no excuse for this kind of behaviour on OUR part.
13. This is nothing compared to the Mosque
Eli ,   Israel   (02.07.13)
Every day between 3am to 4am the loudspeakers on all the Mosques go blasting Islamic noise waking up entire Jewish cities.
14. Another example of...
Mike   (02.07.13)
..'collective punishment' done purely out of hate. 'Most moral army in the world' eh?!
15. @9
Eli ,   USA Israel   (02.07.13)
Move? Why should he have to move, he is living in his country! He is not disturbing the peace of others, why should he have his sleep disturbed at such an early hour? Such a comment proves your ignorance and lack of sensibility.
16. What is sadder: The incident or the comments here?
Michael Steiner ,   Bahrain   (02.07.13)
To engage in sadistic abuse of a bunch of people who did absolutely nothing to you just because you can, or to justify and even exult in doing so... This is incredibly depressing.
17. Totally out of context
Jake ,   USA   (02.07.13)
Were the soldiers hunting for terrorists, or rock throwing teens? This video is out of context, those shrieks sounds edited as well.
18. "no reason" get real! They're Arabs.
World Witness   (02.07.13)
The chief rabbi of the Kiryat Arba has ruled it legal to kill all Gentiles (non-Jews) without qualification.
19. #9 - even Muslims admit its not necessary any more
William ,   Israel   (02.07.13)
with technology these days, the calls of the Muzzeh are not a necessity and are mostly to announce presence of Muslims, not so different than the IDF actions here. You've just justified Arab acts of discrimination and public disturbance.
20. #14 - done by 2 soldiers who were reprimanded
William ,   Israel   (02.07.13)
Not exactly an IDF-damning event, is it? Your bias is well displayed.
21. Contrasting Protocol
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (02.07.13)
What the IDF commander did was obnoxious, and he was reprimanded for it. Who will reprimand the mobs of Arabs that attack Jewish families and soldiers everyday? These mobs are ordered by Abbas to attack soldiers and intimidate Jewish families. The frustrated IDF commander was trying to deter this.
22. to 16
Jennie ,   Israel/US   (02.07.13)
Where is your acknowledgement of who chamas and fattah are and what is the only purpose of their existence , Steiner ? When innocent Israeli citizens are being baraged with rockets from the people who "did absolutely nothing to" Us, we have the duty to defend ourselves.. You talking about "Israel's sadistic abuse"... ? Where was your comment, when the "people, who did nothing to us", have savegely murderred the whole Fogel Family, as well as many other innocent children and thousands of innocent civilians over the years ? You are a little man, with no honesty, no integrity or a savy for investigative reporting and no interest to seek and tell the truth...How can you be not depressing...
23. #10 - ...who were used as human shields....
William ,   Israel   (02.07.13)
by their own terrorist leaders... just saying.
24. #18 - not true, but if it were....
William ,   Israel   (02.07.13)
what power does this Rabbi have over other religious Jews, let alone State of Israel policy and Jews in general?? Like condemning all Arabs because of a racist tirade by an Imam in Cairo, which I KNOW you don't condone, right?
rm ,   Amsterdam NL   (02.07.13)
Some of you don't seem to get it...or are unwilling to. A bunch of your soldiers went out in the middle of the night...not to protect you, but to harass some unfortunate villagers. They did it repeatedly and without any orders......It is shameful in every sense of the word no matter how you think of the conflict.
26. Don't "punish Palestinians". Let's pay them to leave.
Chaim ,   Israel   (02.07.13)
Under ordinary circumstances, there is no need to "punish Palestinians". Let's pay them to leave our land forever.
27. World Witness
DavidR ,   USA   (02.07.13)
You are bearing false witness. You will answer to your creator for it.
28. mike 14
alsky ,   toronto   (02.07.13)
most intelligent people understand there are always good and bad people in every country. \israel is no different. Israel, by far, is the most moral army in the world BY FAR !
29. re:10
Calvin Coolidge ,   USA   (02.07.13)
everyone ignore al he probably cant even name all the past US presidents, or name all 50 states and capitals, doesnt know the bill of rights, preamble of the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, yet he calls himself an American, regarding the IDF though this is shocking but its probably a bad apple in a good tree
30. Some times is our turn to laugh a litle or no?
NATAN ,   ISRAEL   (02.07.13)
