4. Arabs are called "gunmen"
Z Lando ,   Tekoa, Israel   (12.22.06)
While I object to what this man did, I find it cruel that finally YNET and teh Israeli press is using the "T" word - "terrorist" - but only for a Jew.... Arabs murderers are claled "activists" gunmen" fugitives". SHAME on you - the fifth column (Israeli Media) your poison fills the Israeli masses.
5. Aterrorist is a Terrorist

9. Why do you call him as Jewish terrorist ?
Atilla Karagözoğlu ,   Istanbul   (12.22.06)
why not just criminal or just terrorist ? people love to call terrorists with religious way today in world. THIS IS WRONG to me. There is NO Jewish terrorists ??? There is NO Muslim terrorists ??? There is NO Christian terrorists ??? RELIGIONS ARE NOT FOR TERRORIZM. JUST SAY; WE DONT UNDERSTAND WHAT RELIGIONS MEAN. am I wrong ? Thanks.
10. Seattle attacker "not a terrorist"
Kyle ,   Southpark, CO, USA   (12.22.06)
Weisgan was mentally ill. The media, including the Israeli media, does not call the attacker who murdered a woman at the Seattle Jewish Center a "terrorist" because he was allegedly "mentally ill," what makes Weisgan a "terrorist" but not the murderer in Seattle?
11. #9 my turkish friend
patrick ,   Canada   (12.22.06)
Attila, you are 110% right by telling that NEVER should we associate the name of a religion with the word TERRORISM :-( By the way, I like what you are writing on this talkback. It reconciles me with human beings when I see someone who advocate for tolerance and peace with one another. Keep on your good job! Salam!
12. 9-Yes, You Are Wrong
Erik   (12.22.06)
I think what is motivating you is the fact that the vast vast majority of terrorists acting in the name of religion today are Muslims acting in the name of Islam. If Mr. Weisgan was motivated to intentionally kill non-combatants out of religious conviction, it is okay to label him a Jewish terrorist. On the other hand, that a news piece should refer to "this heinous act" by Mr. Weisgan instead of just providing the facts speaks volumes about the writer's absolute lack of journalistic integrity. I wonder if he has ever dared to label any of the thousands upon thousands of daily Arab terror acts the same way in what is supposed to be a news story.
13. Jewish "terrorist"
USA   (12.22.06)
This is nonsense. He was pushed over the edge by the Israeli Government's defying of HaShem's not give away My Land. A Christian.
asher ,   clevelan, America   (12.22.06)
YNET THE ISRAELI AL JAZEERA, If a goy did it you'd cal him/her a freedom fighter
15. His own hatred destroyed him

If it makes you any the happier, I am pleased that this "gunman" removed himself from the world
18. Good ridance to rubbish
Secular Sabra ,   Israel   (12.22.06)
All we can hope for is that all Kahanists hang themselves.... we might have some peace then.

21. Disagree with # 9
Rami ,   Nazareth, Israel   (12.22.06)
I think it was right to specify that he was a "Jewish" terrorist. I guess you have to be living in Israel to understand it. There is a belief among Israeli Jews that only an Arab can be a terrorist. No matter how despicable an act by a Jew is, he/she can't be a terrorist. Emphasizing that he is Jew goes to show that Jews too can be cold blooded terrorists. To show that the law does not discriminate they should have demolished his house as well.
22. To the not so goy # 14
Rami ,   Nazareth   (12.22.06)
You calling non jew a goy is exactly the same as a muslim calling you Dheme. Just different side of the same coin.
23. To #13
Benjamin R Hiatt ,   Portland Oregon, USA   (12.22.06)
He was driven to it? That is the kind of stupid excuse the Arab Terrorsists use. Maybe they “humiliated” him into to doing it? Terrorism is terrorism and if the person was driven to commit terrorism because of their twisted view of their own religion people should not to hesitate to point it out. Oh and asher in #14, thanks for the ethnic slur buddy, that was really classy.
24. ynet follows the olmert/peretz line
Arie ,   Afula   (12.22.06)
The Jews are the terrorists the muHAMedans are the 'activists' Seems olmert & peretz, as well as the ynet overlords, are more concerned about moving tot heir villas on the persian gulf than they are on our security
26. Go To Arutz for real news!!!!!
27. #16 you should respect the dead,
muslim   (12.22.06)

28. Darryl #1
Chamuda ,   Denmark/Israel   (12.22.06)
Now everything in Israel or the rest of the world for that matter is NOT about money !! SHAME on you for that remark....!!!!!!! A human life has ended in a very tragic way and I for one wept for Asher...I don´t give a damn about politics, extremist, terrorist etc etc etc. At this very moment my thoughts go to Ashers´ family and their utter grief...and may Hashem forgive Asher as he has probably not forgiven himself. An extra candle will be lit in my house tonight
