1. UN "peace" keepers
Francois ,   Paris & Montréal   (07.10.06)
If Israeli soldiers are sent abroad, they won't be available if Arab countries attack Israel.
2. Send more officers
Ragusa   (07.10.06)
What a great progress sending IDF offcers to Peace Keeping courses. Hopefully IDF will accept the invitations. And hopefully the officers will return with new knowledge: that conflicts may be solved by other means than opression, killing and revenge. If so, there might be hope that the Israel-Palestinian conflict will not go on for eternity, but will find its succesfull end within not too many years. All parties would benefit from this. ps. Please try to give other replies than the automated ones like "first send the Pali's on a course, then we will see". Both sides have a lot to learn, why not let the millitary stronger part be the first.

The absolutely corrupt, power-hungry UN is a serious threat to the human race. The U.N. should be replaced with an organization that believes in human rights for all people.

Typical Zeropean arrogance. You claim that you are more moral than the Jews but history proved that your corrupt morality is just a facade for hatred, extremism, hypocrisy and crime. Zeropean scums must prove that they are more moral than Jews.

6. Hey Linda!# 3
keren ,   sao paulo   (07.10.06)
I made you a very educated question. What is the reason for not unswering it? What is your agenda? What are you hiding? Why can not you answer simple questions are being made to you? I want to understand christian missionaries intentions. Why not? What's wrong? Please ,answer # 34 in the following adress.,7340,L-3273120,00.html

#3: Sure, blame every body else for all evil things. After all, there is only one perfect race on earth. This attitude for sure will solve conflicts without violence #4: It's not a question of superior moral, although it appears to be a very important subject to you. It's a question of learning from mistakes, which Europe did, Israel not. Maybe the peace-concept should be taught not only to IDF-officers, but to all of you. #5: Sorry, I give up. Can't de-code your message.
8. #6 I responded on another article - don't remember which one
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (07.10.06)
I did see your question on another article, but didn't have time to reply as I had to leave. I have other things to do besides making comments! I AM NOT A CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY. Repeat: I AM NOT A CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY Please allow me a few minutes to respond! Thank you.

I AM NOT A CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY I grew up, and live in a country, the U.S., where freedom of speech and expressing one's opinion is allowed, and considered normal. This is not the case in Muslim countries. Keren, you are not the only one who would like to silence me. G-D says in the Hebrew Bible, we must speak out against injustice. It is a sin not to speak out. I have made the following statements on a number of my comments - here it is again: The eternal, all-knowing G-D WHO KNOWS THE FUTURE is not a man that He should change His mind! G-D NEVER changes! G-D's word NEVER changes and CANNOT be replaced with other scriptures. The Jewish Hebrew Bible is forever. The very essence of Judaism - Deuteronomy 6:4, is for ALL TIME and ETERNITY, but it is rejected by men who seek to replace the greatest scripture with their own doctrine. The greatest scripture: Jewish Hebrew Bible, Deuteronomy 6:4: "Hear, O Israel! The L-RD is our G-d, the L-RD is One! You shall love the L-RD your G-d with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might." I have great admiration for Jews in Judaism who truly live out in their lives - Deuteronomy 6:4. I consider these Jews as outstanding role models. They are an inspiration to me. I will state again - ethnic cleansing 10,000 Jews from Gaza and northern Samaria because they are Jews and their religion is Judaism, was CRUEL and PROFOUNDLY EVIL. The further planned ethnic cleansing of 100,000 Jews from Judea and Samaria because they are Jews and their religion is Judaism is in Massive Violation of Jews' Human Rights. It is incredibly CRUEL and PROFOUNDLY EVIL.

Europe did not learn from its mistakes. Zeropeans are still supporting Fascists and extremists rather than democracy. Zeropa has a long tradition of fanaticism and mental disease: Inquisition, Religious wars, Communism, Facism, ... Nowadays, Zeropeans are pacifists, e.g. extremists once again. The Jews learnt from their mistakes: Zeropeans must never been trust. In spite of your arrogance, you are wrong and I am right and you are unable to prove it, while I'm able to prove it. Moreover, you are behaving with Israelis like disguting colonialistic scums willing to civilize "barbarics" Jews. You are a barbarian, we were more moral than you and we still are. So rather than preaching your crappy new "religion" to moral Jews, take care of your own business and preach peace, respect and democracy to Arabs. You won't do that because you are a coward. Zeropeans are scums.

Some simple questions to you: -Do you want to convert to Judaim? -Do you accept Jesus? -How do you see Jesus role "by the end of the days"? -Do you believe Jews will have to accept Jesus,and those who do not accept will die? -I want to undersant your christian point of you about Jews. I do not want to silent you, but I do want to understand your ,at least,bizarre interest for Jews, and why you" defend"them so eagerly if you yourself are not Jew. I just find interesting to understand deeply.That's all.

AK   (07.10.06)
exploitation of underage girls and boys, in Africa, rape and exploitation of woman, sexual exploitation of a goat (a Jordanian, soldier, not the goat, if I recall correctly) and some other cases of the UN crime and malfeasance? So what exactly are the Israelis supposed to learn from the UN?
14. un peace keepers statement
ronda ,   florida,usa   (07.10.06)
how can the un blame israel for having a strong army, is it not time for the world to allow the palestinians to take responsibility for themselves.leave israel alone,don't fire rockets at them and they will leave you alone. the eu needs to stop spreading anti-semitism there is enough of it already. shame on them. for such a blatent anti semitic statement against Israel.

16. #11 Thus says the L-RD of hosts, "I am exceedingly jealous
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (07.11.06)
for Jerusalem and Zion" Bible, Zechariah 1:14 Dear Keren, I don't think you will ever understand that people believe completely in the Jewish Hebrew Bible which CANNOT BE REPLACED. You state: Do you believe Jews will have to accept Jesus, and those who do not accept will die? Of course, I don't believe that !!! The Bible is clear, Jews have always been, and will always be, G-D's witnesses, G-D's servants, G-D's sons and daughters. No people, no religion can replace the Jews! As far as the end of days, it is good to get the viewpoint of the rabbis. It is heartbreaking you think it is bizarre for people to care for Jews.
