1. " in all its formed is a legitimate right of the Palestinian
Ben Temalion ,   Shiloh, MO USA   (03.12.06)
in all that is formed from a peole from their own peninsula will continue to be as pins in your eyes until you win the war and respect their right of return to their peninsula.
2. Disregard for Palestinian Lives
Roger ,   Clemens, Texas   (03.12.06)
Posturing. Very dangerous when his followers are like sheep. He's sending his people to be slaughtered by insisting on the delusion of driving the Jews into the sea and "retaking" the land. Big talker, dumb as a door nail. Does he want to be a 'martyr" also. Drunk with measly power already. Hopeless palestinians. Dumb. Peace with Israel would be the best thing that could ever happen to them and generations of palestinians but, nooooo, have to spill more blood first.
3. Send these Arab occupiers back to Arabia now!
Palestiniansareamyth ,   USA   (03.12.06)
Israel belongs to the Jews! Neither "Palestine" nor "Palestinians" exists! Hamass belongs in Mecca!
4. True..but
John   (03.12.06)
it is true that occupation desreves resistance and this is god given right...However Hamas,,,be real and think of the people..You have to recognize the real balance of power..You have no chance and it is better to think of the people. Peace is better than war...
5. That's a flexible document
frank   (03.12.06)
not rigid at all. Looks like they listened to world opinion.
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (03.12.06)
Islamofascists murder Jews because Master of the Universe, the G-D of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, gave the Promised Land to Jews. Global jihad is greatly empowered as the U.S. EU and UN support an Islamic terror state in Israel that will threaten the world. There NEVER was an Arab country of Palestine. Jerusalem was NEVER the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. JERUSALEM IS MENTIONED OVER 800 TIMES IN THE BIBLE, not once in the Koran. Arabs FIRST took the name “Palestinians” in 1967. Arafat was the FIRST leader of this NEW PEOPLE. Before 1948, Jews were known as the Palestinians! The Jewish newspaper, the Jerusalem Post was called the Palestine Post. Human Rights Destroyers want Jews barred from living in Judea and Samaria, the Biblical heartland which includes Hebron, the first Jewish city, and second in Jewish holiness, BECAUSE JEWS are NOT MUSLIM! Respect is always given to Muslims! No one is trying to force Muslims out of Mecca and Medina! After the Jews miraculously transformed desert and swamps into rich, agricultural land (for which Jews are world famous!) Arabs came in large numbers from Arab countries for jobs from the Jews. The fact that the overwhelming majority of Arabs resided only briefly in Palestine is attested to by the special UN decree: that any Arab who had resided in Palestine FOR ONLY TWO YEARS BEFORE 1948, and then left, would be considered a refugee and so would his descendants!!! On March 31, 1977, Dutch newspaper Trouw published an interview with PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein: “The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism. For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (03.12.06)
Around 1948, Arabs violently ETHNICALLY CLEANSED about one million Jews from Arab countries. Arab governments seized the land, homes, bank accounts, businesses and assets of the Jews. Most of the Jewish refugees fled to Israel. There must now be a just settlement for the JEWISH REFUGEES and their descendants-COMPENSATION in LAND and FINANCES. Stop the racism. Stop the Jew-hate. Jewish refugees must have justice!
8. "Right of resistance" ...
Stefano ,   NY   (03.12.06)
... which, if excercised via terror, will meet the right of Israel to respond with force, and Haniyeh will aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
9. Right to resist what...peace, history, prosperity?
David Landman ,   Boston, USA   (03.12.06)
Thats what the PA, Hamas, IJ, is about. They dont want peace. They dont want prosperity. They dont even know whose land is whose. They are a lost cause and only have themselves to blame. Finish the peace fence and total separate from them, now and wait as long as it takes until they decide between peace and oblivion.
10. Starting stuff is his right!
Steven Wilson ,   Anchorage, Alaska   (03.12.06)
So put a bullet between his eyes. Implant a ring that states he is retarded, and can't get along with the human race.
11. Oh, Hell No.
jF ,   nashville   (03.12.06)
12. What do you do with a rabid dog?
howard ,   pacific coast, usa   (03.12.06)
*sighs* HAMAS are so passionately devoted to destroying Israel and killing Israelis that building a better life for Palestinians anywhere just doesn't matter to them. They're just going to drag the region down into more bloodshed, and the more the EU and others temporize, the less HAMAS will fear and the more bloodshed there will be on both sides.
13. Death To Amalek
Israel ,   Israel   (03.12.06)
As we read today in today's parsha, Has*em tells us to destroy Amalek and those that dont (Saul) are looked negativly in the eyes of Has*em. Hamas and the rest of you Amalek, will be sent to Sheol as it is written.
14. resistance in all forms is NOT a right. but if you insist...
mike ,   usa   (03.12.06)
then israel has EVERY right to use EVERY precaution to protect herself in every way. and, if they insist, israel also has the right of retaliation of ALL its forms to that resistance. your choice haniyeh.
ALAN ,   FRISCO   (03.12.06)
Look at the faces of the Hamasnicks. Not a starving face among them. Must be sweet lamb and sugar for these boys who live off of foreign donations so that they can run a terror state. Let's clarify for the non believers. Expell the occupation means destroy Israel and send the Jews to Alaska just like the Mullocracy wants. Armed struggle while it sounds Ho Chi Minhish really means continue acts of terrorism. Are there any questions about these terrorists. No money for the lot. Let them earn their money.
16. And we have the right
Jane   (03.12.06)
to life and our land. And we will defend our right to life and our land by any and all means necessary. And if you should die as a result, or if there should be collateral damage, we will not apologize. The people chose you, the prophet of your own doom.
17. Surgical clean up!
Ram ,   London   (03.12.06)
Israel should carry out what it does best. Surgically remove all the terrorist leaders. Olmert appears to be lacking conviction in his reaction to Palestinian aggression. This is only emboldening their actions. With Russia and the EU pursuing their own interests, their actions are tilting the balance in favour of the Palestinians. Israel should not give Hamas the chance to attain any form of international recognition. The necessary surgical clean up has to be applied with urgency!
18. OK, another four lost years, at least (Abba Eban was right)
Roberto Gutierrez ,   Madrid, Spain   (03.12.06)
19. As a proud Gay Anglican Christian
Yaacov Sullivan ,   NY   (03.12.06)
I and my husband unequivocally support the brave Palestinian men and their resistance against the occupation.
20. very clear, precise Hamas guidelines
kate ,   england   (03.12.06)
I could be very uncharitable and think that Abbas' concern over Hamas lack of clarity has forced into the open what we've known all along, giving Abbas a chance to quit. It is plain to see that they do not want Jews (Israel) "occupying" And want the Holy City which our G-d has claimed as His throne donkeys years before Islam ever existed. Point 7 looks to Islamic countries, the surrounding 22 plus the rest of the world by the looks of it for support in all sectors - funny how they can't cough up the price of a pice of bread for their brothers; their motto seems to be ARMS for the poor.
21. game time
atown ,   toronto   (03.12.06)
suit up
22. who are you fooling hamas?
jason ,   suisun,USA   (03.12.06)
1.nothing in there has somthing to accept isreal what a suprise
23. # 19 I don't care how proud you are - you need
Judith ,   Haifa, Israel   (03.12.06)
You need a serious history lesson, though I doubt it will make any difference to those who don't care about facts, especially when their sole desire is the destruction of Israel and the Jews. Nevertheless in light of modern reality I support two states even if the other is a blatant fake. See link:
24. #19 Anti Bible, ANTI-G-D, ANTI-CHRIST Christians
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (03.12.06)
Opposing G-D for giving Israel to the Jews as an everlasting possession. Anti-Christ Christians who would support the VIOLENT ethnic cleansing of Jesus Christ for being a Jew. The definition of bravery are people who risk their lives, even give their lives, to SAVE the lives of others! Anti-Christ Christians who call the murderers of Jews brave. If Jesus Christ had lived in our day, from the time Jesus was in his mother's womb, he would be targeted for murder by the Islamofascists for being a Jew living in his homeland of Israel. The Palestinian Authority hailed as heroes the terrorists who brutally murdered defenseless 8 months pregnant Jewish Gaza mother, Tali Hatuel, and four little daughters in Gush Katif in May 2004.
25. #23 Good work!
Ram ,   London   (03.12.06)
26. #23 nineteen was joking
Ben Temalion ,   Shiloh, MO USA   (03.12.06)
Are you joking though about being for a 2 state solution? An arab state was already created out of the mandate to appease on modern practicalities of oil and Jew hate. Now you want a second that won't appease them either. It a no Jew zone to them as they made their countries yet no UN outcry to hlep them. Arabs wouldn't care for their refugees after '48. Why should their victims be forced to give more of their mandate? The Arabs get baksheesh, bribes but very little goes to settle the refugees. Instead of baksheesh, the money should go into a transporting them and enforce their right of return to their ancestral peninsula
27. peace and war
human   (03.12.06)
Mr. No 4 You are definitly right , peace is better than war. But it must be for all, not for oneside. The Palestinian ask for their rights and you are reading in these articles what are the zionest writting against the palestinians whome they forced to leave their country which occupied by others.
28. John: You are the crappy occupier of your home Get Out !!!!!
Gabrielle Goldwater ,   Geneva Switzerland   (03.12.06)
29. The name Hamas and Haman ...
Steve ,   USA   (03.13.06)
B"H ...differ only by the letter "n" at the end. It is time for Israel to prepare for its Purim victory against the onslaught!
