1. Israel's government is dysfunctional
RobertK ,   Jerusalem   (09.24.05)
It's sheer luck that no one was killed or more gravely wounded in this totally predictable attack. Once again, as throughout the Oslo era except a brief, relative improvement in 2002-2004, our govt. waits passively for the terrorists' next move, waits till Israelis get harmed, then calls a meeting to formulate some response--showing that it had no response already formulated, even though it didn't take a genius to perceive that the terrorists in Gaza were not overflowing with love for Israel and not bringing in huge quantities of weapons so they could put them on display and admire them, and that such attacks were imminent and inevitable.
2. enough already!
yoo ,   Tel Aviv   (09.24.05)
its time that Israel stops forgood those palestinians to go to work, or to get medical treatment in Israel, close those crossings forgood! The Palestinaians are on their own, with plenty of Euro's of the Europeans, let them build their own hospitals and improve their economic situations, we don't want them anymore in Israel! Not after we left peacefully to give peace a chance...they keep attacking Israel and if a truck loaded with qassams explode they still try to blame the IDF, Europe good luck, time to smell the coffee!!!!
3. It is not enough ...
Hiram ,   Tel Aviv   (09.24.05)
Under an agreement with PA , weaponry will be hidden.......but this is not what we want ! We want them to continue blowing themselves up , but above all we want the PA to disram these religious gangsters short of loosing any kind of credibility : 1) no money from anywhere including EEC and the US untill ALL terror groups are fully disarmed 2) Control of disarmement by a mixed commisions made of EEC representatives, UN and PA 3) public destruction of all weapons seized. 4) presence of Observers untill elections This is the least we can ask for...and that is in the best scenario possible, not knowing yet what we will do with these religious fanatics in the coming hours.... Hamas will stick to a promise to halt military-style parades and keep weapons out of sight, a leader of the Islamic group in the West Bank said Saturday. Under an informal agreement with the Palestinian Authority, a ban on flaunting weapons in public was to take effect later Saturday.(AP) Click here for more Israel news from
4. Dereliction of Duty.
Bill Pearlman ,   Chicago, USA   (09.24.05)
I've never been one of those Americans who would fight to the last Israeli even though I thought the disengagement was a mistake. Having said that if the defense ministry does not massively retaliate to an unprovoked attack on a town within pre 1967 Israel. If they engage in the usual crap of denunciation. Then I fully expect to hear from my local Jewish federation that we must raise money for Israeli refugees. Because the country will be untenable.
5. Their Is Only One Response Needed - Carpetbomb
Adina Kutnicki ,   NJ, US   (09.24.05)
Nothing short of carpet bombing the area will do. No limited bullshit responses. No targeting of empty warehouses. Nothing but utter destruction of the strip. The Arabs are NOT aiming for factories and buildings. They are aiming to KILL people. If the IDF is NOT allowed to respond properly, the reins of power must be forced out of the hands of the leaders and taken over by those capable of defending the people. NOTHING else will suffice. Do NOT consult with Bush, Condi or the damn UN.
6. Kassams
gabe szarfer ,   Thornhill canada   (09.24.05)
30 Kassams on pre 1967 Israel from "Unoccupied Gaza" Harsh response: Hitting Open field and empty buildings. But the Leftists can be real proud of themselves. We Don't Occupy Gaza.
7. Time to raze Gaza and transform it into a parking lot
Franck ,   France   (09.24.05)
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (09.24.05)
The PLO/PA and other terrorist organizations declared publicly their religious terror war had achieved the victory of Gaza. Inspiring and igniting a third and much deadlier intifada Islamofascists fight never-ending religious war. The goal of global jihad is the domination and subjugation of every non-Muslim on earth. Shooting attacks. Stabbings. Bombs planted. Bombs thrown. Molotov cocktails and firebombs thrown. Stonings. Rocket and mortar attacks. Islamic homicide bombers. Every single one of the Palestinian Authority's security services are involved in terrorist attacks against Israel. A May 2003 Pew Global Attitudes opinion poll: 80% of Palestinians agreed with the statement: "The rights and needs of the Palestinian people cannot be taken care of as long as the State of Israel exists." 80% of “Palestinians” want Israel destroyed! Ynetnews, 7/16/05 ‘Israel’s Ghost town’: ShaarHanegev Council Head, Shuster: "promises have been made to provide local communities with special protection against rocket attacks." Israel's government: "The cabinet is scheduled to meet Sunday where the issue of supplying a defense mechanism for communities surrounding Gaza Strip is set to be discussed.” This is an ABNORMAL and frightening response to war! The NORMAL and proper response of any government to war, is to PERMANENTLY stop the attacks by fighting back and winning the war!!! Highly pressured by the U.S. the ABNORMAL response of Israeli leaders to non-stop jihad waged against Israel's Jews is to greatly EMPOWER the jihad giving jihadists their own international terror state - Hamastan - with its own seaport and airport - the largest terror base in the Middle East - ENDANGERING THE ENTIRE WORLD - Al-Qaida units already operate in Gaza. July 11 2005 ‘Al-Qaida nukes already in U.S.’ Al-Qaida is planning an “American Hiroshima” involving multiple detonation of nuclear weapons already smuggled into the U.S. G-8 leaders promised nine billion dollars to the Palestinian Authority over the next three years. TAX DOLLARS THAT SHOULD GO FOR THE IMMEDIATE BUILDING OF EMERGENCY BOMB SHELTERS!
9. Palestinians? What palestinians???
Ralph Haglund ,   Lund, Sweden   (09.24.05)
Does anyone believe in them? Then open up the eyes. An Arab in Gaza does not care a whit about an Arab of another tribe 100 kms away, but they must have an army for each tribe. The ra'ees of each tribe is the important guy, not someone off in Ramallah. They are not more interested in uniting than the Iraqis.
10. Why not bring in Condi ???
Ralph Haglund ,   Lund, Sweden   (09.24.05)
She loves to talk and talk and give orders to Sharon. Fly her into Gaza and do not let her out until she has talked Hamas into cuddly teddy bears and given up all their weapons.
13. # 5
Peter ,   California   (09.24.05)
What a vicious woman you are, no wonder the palestinians hate you and keep on fighting you, you are a threat to world peace. May god bless their soul and give them strength.
14. Empty threats by a bankrupt gouverment
Salameh ,   Gaza, Palestine   (09.24.05)
Israel is just not interested in peace. They keep on threatening to do this and that and they well know how they RAN AWAY from here after failing to supress the Palestinians after 38 years of occupation. If they were really interested in peace, they should not torpedo our man efforts to re-build the security forces, stop thei navy and airspace harrassment in our sky and sea all day long, and give the avergae Gazan a chance to see a glimpse of hope. Abu Mazen can't do nothing if they cripple him and he can't just be labelled as Israel agent. Stop your superior mentality, stop making threats, stop interfering, give a peace chance. We are no inferior to no one, and if you keep on it, I'd say Abu Mazen should give up and ask sharon and his staff and to come back to Gaza IF THEY DARE to try to do a job they couldn't do in 38 years of brutal occupation.

???   (09.24.05)
"What a vicious woman you are, no wonder the palestinians hate you and keep fighting you." Hate to tell, but Palestinians hate you as well. Besides, Palestinians NEVER need an excuse to kill. They just make up some kind of wrong done to them to justify their killings. "May God bless their soul and give them strength." May God grant you common sense for you are the real threat to world peace.
16. Most racist humans alive
Salameh ,   Gaza, Palestine   (09.24.05)
To those on this forum that call for the total destruction of Gaza, and the need to murder all Palestinians, I say, you are the reason why this conflict is still on, the strange thing though is you live ion the west, you probably say hi to your neighbours in the morning , and you probably have sex at night like the rest of humans making it really evidant that hatred and extremism has no religion and no nationalism. It's pity that people 1000s miles away from us hate us this much, not for our actions, not a groups of us, but ALL of us for the sole reason that we are who we are !! Shame on your parents who gave you this education
17. Peter and sal; Arabs are the most hateful people in the worl
Daisy ,   USA   (09.25.05)
Blowing up little Jewish babies, beheading and eating their Jewish victims. As a non-Jew I see no comparision between the civilized Jews and the Arab savages. Excuse me Sal THERE IS NO PAlESTINE OR PALESTINIANS! http:.//
18. To Petey # 5 - A Typical Dhimmi Response
Adina Kutnicki ,   Nj, US   (09.25.05)
Hey Petie # 5 - You really need to get a grip. Unless you are a closeted Islamist, you too are on their hit list, regardless of your being in sunny CA. You are an infidel to them AND a useful idiot. Keep championing them until one of their human bombs explodes in Berkeley or in loony San Francisco. Remember, those who cheered on 9/11/01 are also those you are championing. They will also give out "sweets" when you become a target for their cannon fodder.
19. #16 Not racist, just wide awake
AK ,   NY   (09.25.05)
And 1000 miles is nothing in the age of TV and airline travel. You seem to forget, we saw you dancing in the streets on 9/11, passing out candy. We know exactly what you are.
smithlincoln ,   Munchen   (09.25.05)
21. #19 You are either an idiot or blind
Salameh ,   Gaza, Palestine   (09.25.05)
The scenes you are talking about were clearly fabricated from the 1993 oslo screwed up celebrations, so for you to believe you are either an idiot or a blind zionist. Anyway, wether you hate us or not, I could care less, this is our land and will NEVER LEAVE
