1. shanah tovah
Howard ,   Pacific Coast, USA   (10.02.05)
May this be the year that the Palestinians finally realize how the violence of their terrorist "heroes" is what robs them of the peace and freedom that they do indeed deserve to share. May this be a year in which the hate-filled, death-worshipping ideology of al Qaeda and its compatriots loses all attraction among Muslims, and Muslim and non-Muslim nations no longer suffer the horrors of a Bali or a Baghdad or a Netanya. May this be a year of peace and security, in which hope rather than hatred dictates what is possible. oseh shalom bimromav, hu yaaseh shalom alenu v'al kol yisrael. shanah tovah to all of you.

22 HUGE, OIL-WEALTHY Arab states cover over six million square miles, over ten percent of the land surface of earth. TINY, over-crowded Israel, only one tenth of one percent of the Middle East. Desiring another Islamic state in Israel, America is breaking U.S. laws which make it illegal to discriminate based on race or religion. Demanding forcible removal of Jews from the Jewish homeland based on race-Jews and RELIGION-JUDAISM. Making Jews jobless and homeless for implacable enemies, Israel destroyed the homes of about 9000 Jews in Gaza and north Samaria. Homes for which the Jews must still pay mortgages for. Thousands of Jewish greenhouses and 325 Jewish farms built on land that NEVER belonged to Arabs were given as gifts to wealthy Palestinian Authority terrorist organization. Muslim mobs destroyed synagogues, Hamas flags flying from synagogue roofs as synagogues burned. A huge victory for global jihad, Islamists, and every Jew-hater on the planet. World leaders congratulated Sharon for this ruthlessness. The U.S. EU, and UN, not satisfied, cruelly demand more Jew cleansing from Judea and Samaria, to make hundreds of thousands of Jews jobless and homeless, greatly exacerbating Israeli Jews' dire poverty and joblessness. Creating a massive economic and human crisis. AND MASSIVELY DESTROYING ISRAEL'S SECURITY. A most dangerous precedent is being established that Jews in other countries and other NON-MUSLIM people groups will suffer the same horrendous human rights violations as Israel’s Jews. Does the U.S. government plan to eliminate the laws which make it illegal to discriminate based on race or religion? Or, does the U.S. government plan to add a clause stating THE LAW DOES NOT APPLY TO JEWS? Oslo-Road Map ruthlessly destroyed the human rights of Christians who suffer horrific persecution under the cruel occupation of PLO/PA. The following is from: 'Christianity Dying In Its Birthplace' By Daniel Pipes | September 13, 2005 “Almost every day – I repeat, almost every day – our communities are harassed by the Islamic extremists in these regions,” Pizzaballa says. “And if it’s not the members of Hamas or Islamic Jihad, there are clashes with … the Palestinian Authority.” In addition to the Islamists, a “Muslim land mafia” is said to operate. With PA complicity. it threatens Christian land and house owners, often succeeding to compel them to abandon their properties. The campaign of persecution has succeeded. Even as the Christian population of Israel grows, that of the Palestinian Authority shrinks precipitously. Bethlehem and Nazareth, historic Christian towns for nearly two millennia, are now primarily Muslim. In 1922, Christians outnumbered Muslims in Jerusalem; today, Christians amount to a mere 2 percent of that city’s population." This MASSIVE ATTACK ON JUDAISM AND CHRISTIANITY by the Quartet-U.S. EU, UN and Russia, has ominous implications for every Jew and Christian on earth. Where are the human rights organizations??? In 1922, Britain, illegally gave Arabs MOST OF PALESTINE-80%. The area became Jordan, giving Arabs an Arab Palestinian state on Jewish land. IT WAS ETHNICALLY CLEANSED OF JEWS. This area is part of ancient, Biblical Israel, and along with present-day Israel, including Judea, Samaria, Gaza, and the Golan, was recognized by the League of Nations as the Jewish homeland. All Palestinian Authority maps show the new State of Palestine covering ALL Israel, with ALL Jerusalem as their capital. Israel, Holy Land of Jews and Christians is the greatest prize in the global jihad.
3. No other alternatives
Hiram ,   Tel Aviv   (10.02.05)
There are no other alternatives for the PA than that of total eradication of all terror groups under Palestinian jurisdiction. In the same fashion, there is no alternative to the free world than that of eradication of all terrorist groups, regardless of religion. We have spoken enough, acted enough : the choice is PA's..They need to demonstrate that " they know how to deal with terror.Short of that , we will deal with it.
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (10.02.05)
ISRAEL OFFERED UP AS 2ND CZECHOSLOVAKIA The United States, the EU, and the UN are fully aware that the goal of the Palestinian Authority and other terrorist groups is total annihilation of Israel. An Islamic terror state in the Jewish Holy Land enables that goal. See part of an article below: Tuesday, August 23, 2005 Islamic Jihad says all Palestinians united Leader says total annihilation of Israel joint strategy © 2005 "In a news conference in Damascus, the leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad today boasted all Palestinian groups remain united in the goal of annihilating the Jewish state of Israel. With Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia looking on, Ramazan Abdullah, secretary general of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, said the Palestinian Authority and all Palestinian movements have reached agreement on a joint strategy after Israel's evacuation of the Gaza Strip. "This war would continue till full liberation of Palestine, restoration of the denied rights of the whole Palestinian nation and briefly speaking uprooting of the usurper Israeli regime," he said, according to a translation by the official Iranian Islamic Republic News Agency..." The vile Jew-hating, hostile actions of the U.S. to Israel, our trustworthy ally and dear friend, is against everything the U.S. has ever stood for, and against everthing Americans believe in: freedom, justice, human rights, and the belief that we are all created equal. Unless the U.S. EU and UN reverse their horrifying anti-Jew, anti-Israel policies, it will be evident that the U.S. EU and UN have taken their stand with the terrorists against innocents.
5. The STADIUM is in Israel's court
Salameh ,   Gaza, Palestine   (10.02.05)
All balls, standium, audience and refree is in Israe's court. END THE OCCUPATION NOW.

7. Salami form Gaza
barry ,   tokyo   (10.03.05)
The occupation is ending - this creates a new problem for Arabs living in Gaza. Are they prepared or capable of creating a law-abiding society? This is the greatest fear of the Palestinian PR machine that has always portrayed themselves as "victims". If Palestinians continue the daily mayhem, accidental "work accidents", revenge killings the world will deem them incapable of creating a peaceful, law-abiding nation. Unfortunately for the moderate Arab population, they will once again pay the price of their incompentent leaders. Palestine? Maybe in the next century....
8. Gaza
AM YISRAEL CHAI ,   NY, USA   (10.03.05)
End what occupation Salameh? Gaza is not occupied by Israelis but is occupied by hateful terrorists such as Hamas and Al Aksa Martyrs who kill your innocent brothers every day while praising Allah. What a joke.
9. salameh & occupation
Howard ,   Pacific Coast, USA   (10.03.05)
Ah, yeah, Salameh. Remove the Israelis from Gaza, right? Oh, wait -- we already did. Earth to Salameh -- you have several thousand gangsters running around in your streets with AK-47s and unstable home-made rockets and bombs, shooting at your own security forces and murdering taxi drivers because they are late for meetings. These gangsters promised to stop doing all of this even before they accidentally blew up 20-100 of your own people, but they don't remember their promises very well, do they? They think they are above your own laws and that they don't need to keep their word to YOU (much less to us). Is THIS what you want? The only people who are OCCUPYING Gaza and oppressing its people right now are Palestinian terror gangs like Hamas and the al-Aqsa Brigades. Tell us: do you support your own government's effort to disarm the "jihadist" lunatics who are destroying your life? Here's a research project for you. It will tell you a lot about what is going on in Gaza. Ask Hamas and the al-Aqsa Brigades whether they even HAVE rules of engagement, and if so, ask them what these rules are, and what happens when they violate them. Ask a lot of different terrorists. Then come back and tell us what you find out. My guess is that either (1) most will have no clue what "rules of engagement" are or why they are important, or (2) they will simply shoot you for challenging them. Either way, I suppose it will be educational for you. If you get rid of the terror gangs, Gaza will finally return to sanity. That's all it takes. And imagine what kind of statement you would be making to the rest of the world if you did that... .
10. Khaver, grow up ! Whom are you kidding?
Salameh ,   Gaza, Palestine   (10.03.05)
Gaza is a part of Palestine. Our northern part of Palestine as well as Al-Quds Al-Sharif arfe still occupied, for now I won't ask no one to do whatever. When you quit our lands, then and only then we will ask our Haganah, Irgun, Stern, lehi and Palmech to disarm or face an iron first. Until then Khaver, we will not be your agent and we won't lift a finger against our freedom fighters (for now)
