1. May HaShem treat Olmert as he deserves.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Santa Monica, CA   (06.23.06)
2. Oh his family members had influence over him alright
Jenny   (06.23.06)
At first maybe it was just his wife so it wasn't that bad, but now that he has a whole grown up family of smolanis, he simply succumbed to the pressure. So nice to see the big happy family of abdullah, abbas and olmert, the 3 most impotent leaders of our time.
3. As certain kids
Ann   (06.23.06)
and other well known guys and gals(N.Telavivians) will certainly jump at the opportunity to move closer to those they love so much, may not be much room left for jewish israeli 'settlers', and these may( horror of horrors) want shabbat and kashrut and synagogues, and other distateful meaningless old world symbols.Yes, I'm being sarcastic/realistic/truthful, very.
4. gr8 idea
darryl ,   israel   (06.23.06)

6. Wooo... We would LOVE to have them here!!
Palestinian   (06.23.06)
Ya habibiiiiiiii
7. Settlers would be allowed to remain in PA
Yisraeli   (06.23.06)
Just who do you think your kidding with that pathetic statement. Same as saying to the Jews of Germany in the 40's Jews that want to remain in Nazi Germany will be 'allowed' to do so. Olmert you are beyond contempt.
8. excellent
Jew ,   Jerusalem   (06.23.06)
All those who support them will rally to them and finally fulfill the other half of the mitzvah to settle the out the enemy. Then they will establish a Torah State there and commence to take Yerushalayim.
9. statesmen and politicians
shimon ,   spain   (06.23.06)
the difference between them is that statesmen prepare the next generations, while the politicians prepare just the next elections. Olmert is right, changing is a symptom of strength, it always was in the history of our people. Disengagement is the only realistic solution among the many that have been presented in the last years and the couple sharon - olmert will be rememberd as the warriors who made peace possible, while some pacifists will just be rememberd as peace - talkers
10. bravo !!!
Michael ,   Haifa   (06.23.06)
this is the first sensible idea that Olmert has ever come up with...let's hope he is serious about it
11. Bye bye democraty
steve ,   Yesha   (06.23.06)
Our country is being ruled by the opinion of one family out of 6 Million people. So far for the democraty
12. I thought Israel was created to protect all the jews...
paris, france   (06.23.06)
He seems to forget the very essence of Israel's commitments. However I don't think his statement would be carried out one day or another because the Israelis won't permit another blow to their secuity like what happened after the Gaza withdrawal and the kassam shower.
13. Oh Please!
David ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (06.23.06)
His office - immediately thereafter - issued a statement saying no Prime Minister of Israel would ever allow Israelis to live under Palestinian Sovreignty. This is, in the words of Colonel Sherman T. Potter: "Horsepuckey!" He's doggedly sticking to his message and trying to be a tough-guy despite the fact that the shakey support he had for his plan has all but evaporated. Men who wear pink ties shouldn't try tough guy routines. They fall flat. He knows he can't do it now - he's just hoping that if he keeps saying it maybe it will come true. Unless there are dramatic changes, the day he pushes forward is the day we go to new elections.
14. He talks of his plans outside Israel
jason white ,   afula,israel   (06.23.06)
He sits with the enemy and spews his nonsense. What is the big deal with nobel prize winners? Harafat the terrorist won.peres the loser got one. Kissenger shared one and sold out so.vietnam.
15. Omlet forgets his duty to Israelis remove this Government
Gabrielle Goldwater ,   Geneva Switzerland   (06.23.06)
16. The Omlet has lost it totally walking a line of the 30's ?!
Gabrielle Goldwater ,   Geneva Switzerland   (06.23.06)
we heard those words in the 30's too G-d forgot to give this man brains
17. re: I thought Israel was created to protect all the jews...
Saul   (06.23.06)
And the WB settlers are invited to move there!
18. what a genius
jay   (06.23.06)
This should be called a "survival of the fittest plan." Sounds like a good way to avoid the previous disengagment mess that we're still not out of. Just leave them in the lions' den.It won't cost the government any money and the arabs will "take care" of the settlers as only they can, by ensuring that their lives will be hell. Who was the genius that thought of this?
19. I choose Option 1
JoeSettler   (06.23.06)
I choose Option 1 - "a Jewish State"
20.  Ode to #9
Alma   (06.23.06)
1)The rain in spain... I think he's got it by george he's got it 2)I had a little 'nut' tree... the king of spain's daughter came to visit me and all for the sake of my little 'nut' tree (ancient nursery rhyme)
21. Olmert's HATE: The PA CALL for the MURDER OF ALL JEWS
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (06.23.06)
Olmert is fully aware of the horrific suffering and mass murder Jewish innocents would suffer. The Palestinian Authority teach through their mosques, media, summer camps, and public education system, that murdering Jews is a religious obligation. Human bomb killers of Jewish innocents are revered and considered heroes by PA society. Effigies of burning buses are features of PA school pageants and summer camps. Streets and soccer teams are named after suicide bombers. Broadcast from Gaza mosque, Oct 13 2000, Dr. Ahmad Abu Halabiya, on Palestinian Authority TV (transcribed by Memri): "Have no mercy on the Jews, no matter where they are, in any country. Fight them, wherever you are. Wherever you meet them, kill them. Wherever you are, kill those Jews and those Americans who are like them..."
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (06.23.06)
Every Jew-hater on earth are wild with delight at Olmert's evil plan against Jews. Muslims would never give up Mecca and Medina. Yet Olmert , revealing intense hate for G-D, is willing to give up the Biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria and even parts of holy Jewish Jerusalem! All Israel was given by the One great G-D of the universe to all Jews for all of eternity. Jews are not safe in Muslim areas anywhere. The U.S. EU and UN make no attempt to stop Islamist continual hate incitement and non-stop terror attacks against Jews, victims of global jihad. Arab Muslim children and adults train in terrorist training camps. Ambulances transport terrorists, weapons, and bombs. Stabbings, shootings, fire-bombings, stonings, drive-by shootings, bombs planted, grenade attacks, rocket and mortar attacks, lynchings, human bomb killer attacks. The U.S. EU and UN demand through the Road Map that Israel give half of her tiny land, the militarily strategic, Biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria, to PA/PLO/Hamas, PA Muslims, who are united in conquering all Israel for Islam. The ultimate goal is Islamic world rule. The raison d'etre of the genocidal PA society is the mass murder of Jewish innocents. Palestinian Authority society are taught murdering Jews is the highest goal in life and attains paradise:
23. The Israelis should still hold Israeli citizenship
Chaya ,   Bat Yam   (06.23.06)
While I still don't believe in the idea of a 'palestinian' state, if - and this is a very big IF - this were agreed upon and Jews could continue to live where they have been living and would be able to travel freely and safely (I still believe it isn't possible, however), there is no reason why Jews living in Judea and Samaria still couldn't hold Israeli citizenship. The Arabs can call themselves whatever they want. And, matter of fact, all Arabs residing in - what will be called - Israeli proper would have to have 'pal' citizenship - they would have to give up their Israeli citizenship. And we will still continue to call all the area from The Jordan River to the Mediterranean "Eretz Yisrael."
24. Sorry
Arab ,   Arabia   (06.23.06)
Sorry, but Jews are not welcome in Arab countries. After the systematic ethnic cleansing of 99.9% of the jews from the arab world, why would we agree to allow jews to live in their ancient homeland...oops...I mean palestine. But Arabs, well we are to be allowed entry into any country anywhere on the planet we want to live. 20 million arabs in europe and more to come. 5 million arabs in America, and more to come.
25. Smolmert Choice
Happysettler ,   Ofra   (06.23.06)
We will be happy to choose option one. Not only will it be good for us, but they they will see that it will be good for them. All will see we are on the right side of this Ghetto wall.
26. One state
this is very nice said from Olmert, in fact no one should move any where and Palestinian should return to there homes and we should all live in one land without one group persecuting the other. If the Jews just take out the fear of a new genocide and recognize the Palestinians right to live in there land, no Arab would harm them. They lived for thousands of year together with Arabs till they decided to displace them from their land. The one state solution is the only viable peaceful solution that can last forever.
27. SDEROT, PM Olmert, SDEROT! Do you remember?
Gerd ,   Germany   (06.23.06)
28. Let Them Stay, What
Dave Levi ,   Burbank. USA   (06.23.06)
Now I've heard it all., Olmert says let them stay in Palestine. Give me a break. The minute the iDF leaves, those settlers lives won't be worth a plug nickel..or shekel as the case may be. Olmert is just being political, with the Israel public. By giving the Jews (sort of like the woman or the tiger yarn, he knows that the homes won't be torn down. What Olmert and Peres don't know, and Bibi does, is that this is not about borders, it's about Israel's destruction. Everything (including the Jordanian walk-out) tells us this, but some just refuse to see it. I mean, how dumb can one be? Settlers remaining in Palestine, is like Jews being told, "Work Makes Free", remember that lie. Frankly, I'm disgusted with Kadima...what Israel needs is a new Koch party, led by someone who sees through all of this. Maybe somewhere, there is a leader for Israel?
