1. So what PHR is really saying
JPS ,   Efrat   (09.03.06)
Is that the Palestinians care so little for their own that they are not willing to stop shooting rockets and sending suicide bombers at Israel. Not only that, but I guess I missed PHR's call for the Palestinians to stop carrying out war crimes (their stated policy of rockets and bombs against civlian targets) and spend their efforts instead on the health of their own population. The world is waiting for PHR to publicly call on Dr Naeem to renounce his governments position of no peace with Israel in order to improve the lives of just about everybody in the region, most of all the Pals.
2. Life is cheap for Arabs
Jim ,   Akron, Ohio, USA   (09.03.06)
If they would value it, they wouldn't laud suicide bombers and other "martyrs". And they wouldn't keep starting violence and bloodshed that leads to their own deaths. After they start valuing life, then come back to us.
3. Short Supply?
Jeremy ,   Montreal, Canada   (09.03.06)
Funny that they don't have a short supply of guns, rockets, and anti-tank missiles.
4. in their own interest, palis should declare hudna

5. Israel puts Barbarians to shame!
Alex ,   Washington, DC, USA   (09.03.06)
Are Israelis ever going to start thinking that the rest of the human species hurt as much as they do, and that their blood is just as red as theirs? As long as zionism teaches its followers that the only way to deal with arabs is by force, Israelis in particular and Jews in general will never know peace. PERIOD!! If you want to live by the sword then expect to die by the sword! And don't expect any sympathy or respect from honest compassionate human beings in the world. As long as you keep falsley thinking that Jews are better, smarter, and enjoy more God-given rights than christians, muslims, buddhists, hindus, etc... you will expect Rejection and Isolation. It's that simple! PS: For the irrational and fanatic zionists: please keep your "anti-semitic" charges and name calling to yourselves, if you don't like my opinion. And if you think you are not Barbarians, then debate and act like civilized human beings.
malcolm   (09.03.06)
Cheap in the eyes of their "leaders " and cheap in the eyes of the vast majority of most of Gazans who beleive in shahidom, murdering and dying for a fantasy paradise.
7. #1 & # 2 Morons Stop hate towards arabs
Sammy ,   Canada   (09.03.06)
Life is never Cheap for Palestinians or Arabs in General. We cherish life like everyone else. But Also We have self esteen and dignity that never to be compromise. They want the palestinians to have democratic election. So they did The People elected Hamas. So Why would punish the palestinians for that?. instead resume talks with Hamas? Stop calling them terrorists like you always do. If you go back in History Israel used same tactics to fight the British Manadet to Palestine in 1920 ans 1936 belford declaration etc.. Arabs they dont go violence but they also have right to fight back if they attacked. You keep killing their leaders and bombing and demolishing homes and terrorizing woman and kids and keep claiming they are used by terrorists that's nonsense. In lebanon, Israel were Not attacking Hezboallah they were only killing Civilians and destroying homes - which made lebaon look like Berlin in WWII. If you want them to Stop attacking then You stop Killing them and send down and talk peace. Stop being COLD hearted release those 20K prisoners which half of them are teenagers they also have families like you they havent seen of ages. In North America The Animals have more RIGHTS than Palestinians in iSRAEL.
8. get real
chad ,   usa   (09.03.06)
On the other hand: if you've got people so desperate they'll dig tunnels and suicide bomb your country, you're bound to have some guilt in the matter. It's not happening for "no reason" as many would like you to believe. It's the poor vs the rich, rich vs the poor. Poor man taunts the rich man and the rich man pushes him further down the poverty hole.
9. Israel offered drugs and was refused by the PA
counter   (09.03.06)
That's right, before the attack at Kerem Shalom, Israel offered to enable shipments of drugs to hospitals and was refused.
10. #5,#7,#8
donsaliman ,   Nahal Oz, Israel   (09.03.06)
Please tell me,where is all those billions of Dollars,that Arafat and others got from Europe,UN & the USA,went to. The pals have no money for food,work,medicine etc,but they sure do have to money to buy weapons to destroy Israel. They sure have enough money,so Arafat's widow can live on $100,000 a month in Paris,the money also ends up in private bank accounts for the terrorist. What is the reason they attack the "Karni Crossing,where food,medicine etc,comes in to Gaza? Stop blaming Israel for defending herself against the terrorists that want to destroy Israel. One last thing,while under Israeli rule since 1967,the people had work,medical care. The universities were open under the Israeli rule,while Jordan & Egypt,closed them. Under Israeli rule, their health improved,child death at birth went down. Talk about hate,why is it, in the schools,they teach their young to hate Israelis and,how giving up their young lives,will get them to Heaven. I know this does not replace the want for a state of their own,but time and time again, their leaders decided to destroy Israel at any cost and the cost is the Pals life & the life of us Israelis. We are not the morons,as one of you called us,we do care about life and we do care about human beings that are living in Gaza & the West Bank.
11. Sammy, Tell the Truth
malcolm   (09.03.06)
Islam demands shahidom and violent jihad above all else, The value of human life is thus less than that of animals. Study and learn the truth.
12. to Alex DC
Mike ,   Atlanta, USA   (09.03.06)
""if you don't like my opinion. And if you think you are not Barbarians, then debate and act like civilized human beings." Why do you believe Israelis are different from any other race? Why do you think THEY put barbarians to shame and not Americans, Arabs, Sudanese, Chinese, Turkish? Why do you exclusively focus on Israelis and Jews?
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (09.03.06)
PA/PLO call for the murder of all Jews and murder of Americans. PA/PLO are the recipients of mega U.S. tax dollars. Americans are immorally forced to finance barbaric jihad against Jews and Americans. The planned genocide of Jews by PA/PLO/Hamas/Hizbullah et al, breaks international law and must be addressed by the International Criminal Court and human rights organizations. The U.S. EU, UN Road Map Islamic Terror State Two in Judea, Samaria and parts of Jerusalem will reduce Israel to an INDEFENSIBLE 6-10 miles wide at mid-section, thus enabling a second Holocaust of Jews. 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. Palestinian Authority society are taught murdering Jews is the highest goal in life and attains paradise: 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. Thousands of Palestinian Authority Muslims celebrate in the streets and pass out sweets whenever Jewish innocents, including children, are murdered by human bomb killers. Effigies of burning buses are features of PA school pageants and summer camps. Streets and soccer teams are named after suicide bombers. Adults and children train in terrorist training camps. Terrorists have been captured at Israeli checkpoints, posing as ambulance drivers, doctors and patients. Terrorists have hidden explosive suicide belts under gurneys carrying sick children and in the garments of pregnant women. Red Crescent ambulances transport terrorists, weapons and bombs. 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..."
14. Inaccurate and biased PSR story
InfectiousDiseaseMD ,   Atlanta US   (09.03.06)
From the details provided in the story, the "special catheterization" recommended by the doctors should be placement of a suprapubic catheter, readily doable in Gaza where she had a series of bladder operations already. If the doctors there don't understand this and need a second opinion, why not get one from a country whose government the current Palestinian leaders have not sworn to destroy? Seems a bit hypocriical for PSR and the health minister to task Israel with providing that service when by there own admission it is readily available elsewhere!
MIKE WALKER ,   TX/USA   (09.03.06)
16. blind in Canada
jerome s marks ,   basalt, co   (09.03.06)
Th e Pals always start the violence form the begining when they teach children as soon as they are able to learn to hate Jews. Hamas is a terrorist government as is Tehrans. I'm surprise Sammy wasn't arrested with the other Canadian muslim who wanted to behead thier own prime minister for having tropps in Iraq, where Canada has none.

The things you wrote are pure stupid, you sure your real name isn't Mel from Malibu!
18. Human Rights For Everyone But The Jews
Adina Kutnicki ,   US   (09.03.06)
These sham 'human rights groups' are outrageously pathetic, and mostly lovers of terrorists and their enablers. How could a group that takes as its oath the healing of the sick NOT condemn those who strap bombs on themselves to kill each and every Jew, yet they condemn those taking defensive measures against such terror? Whenever I hear the word 'human rights group' , I automatically label them suspect. They believe in human rights only for those who terrorize the west and manage to kill the Jews in the process. My son is planning to study medicine and I would rather spit dirt than have him join one of these 'missions'. Those who help anyone, regardless of their crimes are nothing short of enablers.
19. to # 5
jason white ,   afula,israel   (09.03.06)
We will live by the sword and our enemies will die by our swords. What do you know about human beings?Let's face it alex, you are an outsider.I see by the way you spell you are probably abed and not alex.
20. #12, Mike...please read my response to #10. Thank you.
Alex ,   Washington, DC, USA   (09.03.06)
21. Always Vying To Enter Israel. As If It Is Their Right
Adina kutnicki ,   US   (09.03.06)
What a galling nerve! When they aim to kill Jews they try every trick in the terror book to enter Israel. On the other hand, when they have real medical emergencies they whine that they MUST enter Israel for medical treatment. Why in the hell should Israel medically treat this (mostly) terror population? Should the US have treated Hitler and his disciples? What about the Japanese fascists during the war?
22. The Solution Is Simple
emanon ,   USA   (09.03.06)
Terorists turn in their arms, they get medical supplies. They don't disarm, they don't get medical supplies.
23. Alex, please re-post your reply to #10.
Mike ,   Atlanta, USA   (09.04.06)
24. You can't have it both ways
judy ,   UK   (09.04.06)
Palestinians should make up their minds whether they wish to be separate from Israel or part of Israel, and enjoy its medical amenities.
25. It's what they wanted for. They need to stop whining.
RA   (09.04.06)
The Palis want to have their cake and eat it too. They want health help from Israel while tryng to destroy it. I don't think so. They voted for Hamas, they got Hamas. Now live with the consequences .
26. Alex #5
Jerry ,   USA   (09.04.06)
The Jews are slightly better than the Palestinians. They built a state from scratch and the Palestinians cannot manage to run greenhouses that were purchased for them and given to them as a gift. Jews built synagogues and Palestinians burned them. Jews have a portion of their population that is genuinely concerned about Palestinian welfare, while the Palestinians have a portion of their population that is intent on destroying Palestinian welfare.
27. To #5 and #7
PatriotUSA ,   Redmond, Oregon   (09.04.06)
You two are such fools! Of course it always the Jews fault and oh mu gosh, that nasty ole Zionism, it will get you killed every time! Give us a break you morons. You think the Israelis are barbarians?? Israel is the one who tried to send medicine and medical supplies to gazastan and it was REFUSED by you rocket scientists, the arabs of gazastan. The Israelis treat wounded ARABS regardless if they are a known terorist or not in the jewish hospitals. That sure is barbaric to me. You train you kids to hate us Jews from birth and we are the barbarians. You elected a terrorist government and you are reaping what you all have sown, so enjoy your rewards and now the world is seeing that you, the islamofacists of the arab world are the real true barbarians and the ones who cheapen life to the cheapest it can be to fit your perverted cult you call a religion.You will find NO SYMPATHY here at all. No surprise that Sammy lives in Canada. Shame they tolerate hate mongers like your kind!
28. #26, Jerry
Alex ,   Washington, DC, USA   (09.04.06)
I respectfully disagree with your allegations. Please allow me to remind you that: A. The Palestinians already had a state that they built long before Israel existed, and Israel was built after destroying what the Palestinians created. B. You can't deny Palestinian children an education and then tell them that the "Jews are better than the Palestinians"...Uproot tens of thousands of their olive trees, confiscate their tax money, deny them water, electricity, basic medical care, and build a racist wall to separate them from their fields and other family members and then turn around and tell them the Jews are better than you. THAT'S RACISM AT ITS CORE!!
29. #28 You are an idiot
RA   (09.04.06)
If the Palestinians wanted what you claim they dont have, all they have to do is STOP ATTACKING ISRAEL! It's that simple. Israel has shown over the years that those who want peace will have it and will live good lives. Those who want war with Israel will only suffer in return, because Israel will prevail time and time again.
30. the truth about Hammas
Dr. NO ,   israel   (09.04.06)
Please consider the following: (14 year old dispatched on a suicide bombing missue) This is justice served in Iran: just scroll down and click on the angry smiley or the skull beneath it. This is global jihad: this is what Iran, Hezbollah and Hammas are all about. and there are so many more examples of what exactly Hamas and also Hizbollah have in mind, and exactly what their plans are for the State of Israel and the Jewish people. I sincerely hope it is clear enough for you that there is no place for Israel on their map. Now I would like you to take a minute of your time and ask you to sign this petition. Dear Friends, I have just read and signed the online petition: "A Call to the UN to Provide Reparations for the Hezbollah War" A Call to the UN to Provide Reparations To Israel Too for the hezbollah War To: United Nations The Hezbollah War was brought on by a terrorist organization that hijacked the sovereign state of Lebanon, a member of the United Nations. Hezbollah, with the assistance of Iran and Syria, defied Security Council Resolution 1559 which, among other things, “Calls for the disbanding and disarmament of all Lebanese and non-Lebanese militias”. Hezbollah launched this war against Israel, a democratic and sovereign state, and a member of the United Nations. Hezbollah is neither a state nor an official body belonging to one. Lebanon was to some degree an accomplice to its own loss of sovereignty by failing to act to protect it and failing to return to the Security Council for help. The UN Security Council failed to discharge its obligation. It allowed Hezbollah to entrench itself in Southern Lebanon and to spread its terror to the people of Lebanon. Both Israel and Lebanon have suffered great loss of life as well as widespread physical damage as a result of this war started by Hezbollah. It is, therefore, incumbent upon the world community, which stood aside while Hezbollah armed and trained for war, to provide reparations for the damage and destruction brought on by the aggression which sprang from Lebanese territory. We therefore call upon that community to bear the cost of rebuilding Israel in addition to Lebanon. Israel, which had withdrawn from Lebanon some years ago, was forced to engage in a defensive war to save the lives of its citizens. We further call upon the world community, through the United Nations, to seek indemnification for the damages from Iran and Syria the controllers of Hezbollah. Sincerely, The Undersigned
