.....no better than those they want to expel from their homelands.
2. Evil vicious attack
Whioch invites attacks on Jews throughout the world.

3. "he was helpless, and didn't know how to stop the attack.
She said the Arab woman was with a man, "he was helpless, and didn't know how to stop the attack.
"Many people just stood by and didn't help her."
4. Dorit Yorden-Dotan is a "feminist Palestinian activist"
How convenient she was in the right spot at the right time. She never seems to have witnessed Arab youth spitting at Jewish women soldiers in this spot. Smells like a set up.
The top picture shows a man forcibly restraining the Arab women. A Jewish women is standing near by and a man has his arm around her. The Arab women seems to be fighting a lot harder to get away. The second picture shows only one person with raised arms. It is again, the Arab women.
Based on the pictures--the whole narrative seems to be opposite the truth.
6. To #1!
Your statement just proves how ignorant Australians' are--you idiot!!!
Jake Stone ,
it was more important for dorit to photograph the incident then protect the victim,
8. haha, talkback detectives. I love em (#5)
I tell ya, you guys crack me up every time.
9. #6 you should apologize, and #5
The Talkbacker at 1 is someone who may or may not be called Robert and may or may not be from Australia.
Even if Robert is from Australia, his opinions have nothing to do with the other 23 million Australians. He is a sad nobody troll sitting in mom's basement with too much time on his hands.
Are there ignorant Australians? Yes. Are all Australians ignorant? No.
#5 excellent points, supported by #4's assertion.

10. What's the truth?
In the photos it seems that the Arab woman is the aggressor. If the opposite is true and Jewish women attacked the Arab woman because she was Arab, then those women should be arrested and charged for hate crimes.

...says someone from the USA -the most ignorant and arrogant country in the world. And by the way, a person from the US said to me, that the USA is ignorant and arrogant, so it's not just my opinion.
12. Does not matter who was in the wrong
Assault is assault. If it was a hate crime then the Jewish girl needs to go to Jail. I am a rightist, however I do not believe this type of thing helps our cause, it just gives fuel to the enemy.
You stupid ignorant little girl, you might think you are taking one step forward but instead you make our cause take 2 steps back you stupid fool!

13. Look at the pictures closely
The Arab woman (middle) in black is the one attacking. The Arab man is trying to stop her. The so called Jewish attackers are defending themselves.
If she was hit, it was in self defense.
All the people are easily identifiable, and the truth will come out...
14. Jerusalem the United City!! If you happen to be Jewish.
15. Religion strikes again
And these women call themselves religious? Just goes to prove that jewdism has become a religion of intollerence and hatred.
16. The only violence I see ....
... is committed by the Arab woman.
About ten years ago, I was accosted by an Arab woman in Jerusalem. For absolutely no reason. Back then, I was too shocked to respond to her curses and spitting.
Of course, I have matured. Were that to happen today, I would put her on her fat ass. In a heartbeat.
No one accosts me in my homeland. Kudos to the girls for doing what they had to do.
Anyone still wondering why this alleged Arab "victim" did not file a complaint? She didn't want the truth to come out -- she was the aggressor in the confrontation.
Possibly she had a "thing" for Arafat Jaradat -- may his soul roast in hell. Who knows?
For that matter, apart from the fact that innocent Jewish girls have been accused of a crime they did not commit -- who cares?
Not I. If the Arab protagonist doesn't like it, she is free to leave. Forever.

17. She deserved it!
"Just a quarrel"... Well, I guess if a bunch of Arabs attack a single Jew the same way, it would be a "anti-Semitic terrorist attack".... Well done, Israel.
18. If it was hate attack they should get
long terms in jail, even 6-12 months.
Otherwise it will become a trend..
19. Sounds like just a fight between two people
"A Jerusalem police official said on Monday: "It seems to have been a dispute which developed inside the Light Rail and turned violent outside of it.
Meaning it is just a case of two people who got upset and started a fight nothing o do with arab or jew just a case of two people with a temper, at least that is what an actual investigation seems to support.
20. A trend - # 18
Regretfully it is apparently already becoming a trend for groups of young Jewish people to attack Arabs - and the police are "helpless".

21. Arab women
I have been in israel twice this past 12 month and ill be their again in August
Every time I am their I feel the agressivity of the Arabs
The way they look a Jews, they loud music that they play from they car to disturb Jews neigbougt
They are arrogant ,jand aggressive and they want to see the Jews out of israel
So please ynet stop publishing this type of propaganda
Democracy does not mean to help your enemy and be self destructive
22. Dorit is a liar
Her pictures give a very different version from what she is claiming. Apparently the Arab woman is attacking, despite the claim that she did not respond to the supposed violence aggainst her. The other picture shows that actually everybody is involved one way or another in this altercation in complete conntradiction to the claim that no one stayed unmoved by the incident. I wonder what other "clues" would the unsown picture might have revealed. Still it might have been that the Arab woman was accosted by the other but I frankly doubt it.
23. SERIOUSLY NOW
do we really know the whole story and the whole picture?? It is difficult to believe that such an incident happened without some kind of provocation. Photos such as these can be perceived at various angles to suit the opinions of the observer. Let us not be too hasty in judging these religious women too harshly.

And what we see condemns your nation. Fortunately, thanks to the internet, this sort of story is getting out to the world. Israel's general culture of racism will be its downfall. You will have no one to blame but yourselves.

25. #4 - Rebecca, good point!
26. no 1...
Robert from Australia go and crawl back under the neanderthal rock you came from and take your racist idiotic comments with you....as usual you are just embarrassing yourself with your lack of intelligence and complete stupidity.....what country in the world does not have these racial attacks? head out to Sydney/ Melbourne on pretty much any night of the week and you can see all the races egging each other on and behaving like stoneage idiots...(or for that matter any high school any day of the week in Australia and the rest of the planet). But you have to take one instance and turn it into a racial assault on all Israelis. Grow up and take your blinkers off doofus.
27. POLITICAL THEATER...
I would expect lots more of these unsubstantiated staged "reports" ahead of a certain someone's upcoming visit. All coordinated and designed to manipulate.
Sure looks to me like people are trying to calm her down and are kind of like standing around her baffled.
There's a YouTube video showing two parents pushing their little girl toward an IDF soldier and she is yelling at him and hitting him, trying to evoke a response. The. soldier ignored it.
If people see Arabs acting all crazy they should group together, and either stare at them or turn their backs in unison--and be sure to locate the "passerby" "journalist" standing nearby so conveniently.
28. Pushed But So Far
Recent events have Arabs in Israel aggressively acting as a 5th column trying to destroy what has given them rights and a good life.
They have pushed to the point that there is no choice but to respond, although I abhor it.
Israel is a Jewish state but all are free to practice their individual religions but if your religion calls for the destruction of Israel and death of Jews and you come out from Friday prayers only to riot then you have given up your Israeli citizenship and rights to live in a civilized society. Gaza awaits.

29. This is no way to resolve a dispute.
A few comments reportedly haven been said aren't right. Hopefully, a full report will be made to determine fault. You can wonder how some comments can be made that are in error. People have the right to be treated respectfully so long as they aren't offending. It's best when the law is obeyed and used to maintain the peace.
There are matters of religious significance that can still be construed as matters of disorderly conduct and assault. These parties need to have a clearer understanding of each others rights.
A full report with findings would help these parties understand how these kinds of situations can and should be avoided.
Jews and "Arabs" or Muslims shouldn't have to believe that their enemy are those of a different religion, fundamental beliefs can be the same.
Spiritually, Jerusalem is under attack. Jewish character and Jewish influence on the land for what could be perceived to be able/ prophesied would be very good and welcomed. This is a belief interpretation that religious Jews also believe for Israel.
30. common sense
Guys, people fight, shit happens. Especially when coming from different backgrounds.
Stop blowing this up, it shouldn't even be news...
