1. Bishara is Right!
Noah James ,   Wilmington, OH, USA   (08.02.06)
"Everyone in southern Lebanon is a terrorist and is connected to Hezbollah," roared Israeli Justice Minister Haim Ramon on July 27. "Every village from which a Katyusha is fired must be destroyed," bellowed an Israeli general in a quote bannered by the nation's largest newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth. The Israeli paper then summarized what the justice minister and general were saying: "In other words, a village from which rockets are fired at Israel will simply be destroyed by fire." That was Thursday. Sunday, in Qana, 57 of Haim Ramon's "terrorists," 37 of them children, were massacred with precision-guided bombs. Apparently, Katyushas had been fired from Qana, near the destroyed building. "One who goes to sleep with rockets shouldn't be surprised if he doesn't wake up in the morning," said Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, Dan Gillerman. Today, we hear unctuous statements about how Israel takes pains to avoid civilian casualties, drops leaflets to warn civilians to flee target areas and conforms to all the rules of civilized warfare. But Israel's words and deeds contradict her propaganda. As the war began, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert accused Lebanon, which had condemned Hezbollah for the killing and capture of the Israeli soldiers, of an "act of war." Army chief of staff Lt. Gen. Dan Halutz publicly threatened "to turn back the clock in Lebanon by 20 years." Gillerman, at a pro-Israel rally in New York, thundered, "[T]o those countries who claim that we are using disproportionate force, I have only this to say: You're damn right we are." "His comments drew wild applause," said the Jerusalem Post.
2. Too bad there is no capital punishment for treason in Israel
Jeremiah ,   Israel, Jewish Land   (08.02.06)
We need new laws and new High Court Justices.
3. The Arab MKs are the only honest people in Israel
Sandra Ruch ,   Toronto   (08.02.06)
4. A Traitor If There Ever Was One
Ertok   (08.02.06)
How on earth this man and his friends are allowed to stay in the Knesset , let alone ISRAEL - is beyond comprehension. Jump the fence.
5. Mercenary
jul ,   jul   (08.02.06)
This guy is paid a lot of money by our enemies to demoralise us.
6. Bishara cares about Shiites?
Me   (08.02.06)
Since when you, MK Bishara, care about Lebanese Shiites? Better hurry to care about your Nasareth community under missile fire from your Lebanese "brothers".
7. Can Someone Explain Why the Knesset Includes MK's of Enemies
H ,   Jerusalem   (08.02.06)
Arabs, in general, should NOT be in a Jewish Knesset. They can be members of their own governments in their own states. Does Israel include Russians, French, Americans, S. Koreans, etc. in their government? Why are Arabs different? They're the same anti-semitic goyim. Israel, the only JEWISH state should not have anyone besides JEWS in their parliament and courts! Get rid of ALL NON-JEWS. Call me racist. But who cares? This is a Jewish state and whoever is not Jewish should have no word on the affairs of this country. If they don't like it, let them leave this country and go to where they belong. Just as arabs can never ,ever, be included in any orthodox Rabbinical courts, they, and all goyim should not be part of any government positions! Get rid of the traitors once and for all!
8. Bishara-a sower of lies and hate against Yisrael
Yoseph ,   Glendale, USA   (08.02.06)
Bishara-a sower of lies and hate against Yisrael. As you sow - so shall you reap
9. Mad idiot must be jailed
Alex ,   Israel   (08.02.06)
10. equal Right
Arie   (08.02.06)
The arabs in Israel want equal right s and demand the same rights as jews who spend three years in the IDF. Is this fair that Isreal needs to give equal rights to parasites that support the destruction of the state Belin & Meretz are peace now are even worse than Tibi and Azmi Bishara.
11. Dishonesty......
freedom ,   canada   (08.02.06)
As an outsider... This to me seems to reek of treason.. Maybe I am wrong.. But if I were a citizen of Israel I would definitely look into having that MK recalled and questioned about his motives on why he wants to be a citizen of Israel.. Its war, and everyone should at least be on the same page...
12. Jeremiah: There IS Capital Punishment For Treason In Israel
Yishai Kohen ,   YeShA, Israel   (08.02.06)
The law has been on the books since 1950, if I'm not mistaken. And it's long past time to dust it off and use it.
13. Talk is cheap...
yeh right   (08.02.06)
I wudnt worry too much abt M.K. Bashara he has to justify his big fat salary which is paid to him by the Israeli Government, whilst he sits on the side, and condemns the country that he lives in that is probably protecting both him and his family/relatives too. I love u people who sit in the U.S. view a few sensationalist CNN/BBC news programs who do everything to portray the situations in the most extreme...and think for some inane reason that u know the answer...Well u dont, u are not here..u dont know MK Bashara personally or publically and just b/c u want to use him as an excuse to have a go at Israel doesnt mean that u have an understanding of the situation. Pls come over, u are most welcome and see for yourself, what is happening on the ground, look at from our point of view, look at form theirs and then and only then give us ur truly unbiased opinion. We are not against Christians, we are not against Islam, we are however against terrorists. Wud u allow me to come into ur backyard and start shooting randomly at ur family because i had a gripe with u, and if i did wud u not try and protect urself, well its not different over here...Yes innocent lives are being lost on both sides, no one no one is in favour of it..You are soorly mistaken if u think u understand our mentality, b/c we never advocate killing, we are just fighting to protect/defend ourselves!!.
14. to Noah James
someone   (08.02.06)
It said that you can't read Hebrew, and you quote a stupid tabloid which soul purpose is to ignite hate towards Israel. If you had any sense, you would have tried to think by yourself and check for other sources. What a waist…
15. mel gibson and azmi bishara
gedaliah   (08.02.06)
gibson also assured us that he was not anti-semitic.
16. transfer bishara to
gedaliah   (08.02.06)
bint jbeil.
17. Bishara the traitor
Allan ,   london   (08.02.06)
The defination of a Traitor is Bishara, this man goes to two enemy countries and talks with people who are sworn to the destruction of Israel. The state of which he is a member of Parliament for. As in war time you are not allowed to go to enemy combatant countries this is officially what a traitor is. As for his general comments.. well, i dont expect any more from the man who sits down with Terrorists and does call suicide bombings, rockets and kidnapping, okay. Against the people he is supposedly meant to be representing. This guy should be sent to jail as a traitor, not just to the state. But to the knesset which he is meant to uphold the laws of.
18. This traitor should be removed from the Knesset for cause.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Santa Monica, CA   (08.02.06)
19. Send him to Syria and never let him in again..
Landgraf ,   Vienna Austria   (08.02.06)
Israel is trapped by their democratic laws to protect people like him. But how long can somebody cause damage to his own country without getting punished? He is using the high israelien standards of protecting their democratic system, to spread his poison among the people and undermine their values. People like him, are traitors to the system which allows them, to follow their ways of lies. He should be send to those countries he is defending all the time and never be allowed to come back. In every other democratic country , he would be allready out of the goverment.
20. Arab Knesset members
norhern resident ,   Israel   (08.02.06)
Why don't Arab Knesset members worry about the quality of life of Arab Israelis...the poor qualtiy of education ARAB teachers are giving to their children. There is such a high number of illiterate children in the Arav school system, children are under achieving in all subjects, the high drop out rate from high schools, which leads to high unemployment and poverty, crime and substance abuse. It is easy to point out than to look in to see where they really can help their own
21. Enough treason. Israel needs to begin cleaning house.
Moshe ,   Jerusalem   (08.02.06)
We have some serious house-cleaning to do. Why is Bishara and the Arab fifth-column allowed to operate in Israel? Send him and his Jew-hating to Lebanon or Syria as their loyalties are with the Islamic, Arab terrorists, not with Israel.
22. Video of Arabs faking injuries
Big D ,   Los Angeles, USA   (08.02.06) Watch it. Share it.
23. Every dog has his day
Elle   (08.02.06)
Karma is a bitch and Bishara will get what he deserves one day.
24. Hezbollah will never be defeated.
Nathan Rai ,   Bangalore   (08.02.06)
Sad, but right you are. They are like a fart, stink like hell, pollute the environs but ultimately will cease to exist. Nasrallah and the rest of his loonies will run to their fathers in Iran. Only ones who will remember, will be the ones who lost their blood for no cause of theirs. Jihad will meet the fate of its father, Nazism. May be more innocent Muslim, Christian and Jewish lives will be lost, but Jihad will be destroyed.
25. Bishara
Gina Gordon ,   Leeds UK   (08.02.06)
I think Bashara is trying to feather his own nest and frighten Israeli citizens. He is encouraging Hezbollah to destroy Israel - maybe he thinks he will then be some sort of figurehead in an islamic state. Who needs enemies with politicians like him. He villifies the democracy that put him his position. He is a disgrace to the Knesset.
26. why doesn't Bishara ask his brothers to stop killing jews?
aaron ,   ra'anana   (08.02.06)
27. Who thinks....
Pat ,   USA   (08.02.06)
It would be a benefit to Israel if all the arab Israelis packed up and moved back to their homelands i.e. Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon etc.? I know they won't do it, but it could only help if they did.
28. #1
NIce you have anything to say for yourself? I almost fell asleep reading your non stop quotes.
29. Israel should deport the Arab MKs
Rafi ,   Ra'anana   (08.02.06)
The citizenship of Israeli Arab MKs siding with Israel's enemies should be revoked and they should be deported with their families to the Palestinian territories. They should make a decision whether they are loyal to Israel or to her enemies. It is absolutely legitimate for them to represent the plights and problems of the Arabs living in Israel (and indeed, there many problems that should be addressed), but unfortunately, all their energies are leveled at the justification of activities perpetrated by Arabs against Israelis. The vast majority of the Israeli population is simply SICK AND TIRED of these traitors who constitute a fifth column. I am sure that no other democracy in the world would have tolerated such a phenomenon.
30. Bish ra'ah + Ellen + Mel
