1. Condi- you got the Arabs,Jordan, Egypt and Israelel
Bentham ,   singapore   (01.13.07)
Since You are dedicating a lot of time into reading about the issue and trying to understand what went wrong in the past. You may get in touch with these three persons who could help you undertand what went wrong in the past in Israel. 1.Isi Leiber 2.Moshe Kempinske 3.Dr. Aaron Lerner Ynet, I seek that you send this suggestion to Condi in the soonest so that she can come up with the solution.To much time is wasted already. I suggest that she visits Jonathan Pollard also, there at the US prison .
2. Not ready
Jamal Aboud ,   Ramallah   (01.13.07)
I think Israel is not ready for peace now since its government is facing many serious corruption charges. Dr. Rice visit will fail.
3. rice in the region
sas ,   israel   (01.13.07)
very sad to see that 2 over-rated women (livni/rice) are trying to solve the problems of the world. they both are nice, polite, speak well, but are UNABLE to do anything. They both need to be replaced and the quicker the better for us and the world.
4. Didn't Work Before, Won't Work Now
Terry ,   Eilat - Israel   (01.13.07)
Just another re-hash of the same failed policies. Oslo was a failure & this will fail. It's all based on the mistaken assumptions 1) the Palestinian conflict is central to Middle-East problems which is obviously false & 2) that so-called "moderates" can deliver a deal. We will make all the concessions, the Palestinians will do nothing on their side & we will be back to square one, except in a worse strategic position. And I am not blaming the Americans - it is our gov't that is defeating us. They are more misguided than the Americans, all they can think about is their short-term political survival no matter what cost to the country.
5. By The Way ......

If I hear the word "peace" one more time, I may vomit. What happened to WINNING?
Michael Steiner   (01.13.07)
Since Olmert is happy to sit with his arms crossed and do nothing to promote peace in the region but instead chooses to regurgitate tired old platitudes and barefaced lies, and condones abhorrent practices by Israel (in particular the settler fascists), it's down to America to give the peace process a push. The Saudi peace plan is a commendable initiative, and one which has a good chance of working. Israel has to end the occupation and perhaps this is a way to make us do it.
7. There are no moderates to make peace with Condi !!
Freejay ,   Israel   (01.13.07)
Rice says we need the involvement of the rational elements among the Palestinians, like PA President Mahmoud Abbas. Is she blind or just as stupid as Livni???? Abass is just another holucoust denier that in arabic , still spreads hate towards Israel to his people. Only in english to the media does he talk peace. Abass was qouted the other day as saying ( in arabic) Palestinians should stop their infighting and concentrate on attacking the occupiers, Israel. The only thing this terrorist in a suit, Abass, wants, is Israels total destruction.
8. What's wrong with the old options?
Ben Temalion ,   Shiloh, MO USA   (01.13.07)
Jews are expelled and that is accepted. Why not return the favor? Germans Moors, berbers are expelled and no one says boo? Expell the homicidal Hamites, as Rabin , Faisal, BG et al have claimed was right at one time. The time is still now! Enforce the right of return of those in your midst who can neither make peace nor claim peace with one mind. Enforce their right of return to their homicidal hmite peninsular homeland of their own name. They come to KILL YOU. They never had more that a hndred year control of your land so tell them and your own who hate your to take their playskool keys and shove them up where the sun don't shine.
9. Rice, you got another recipe? Don't overcook it
john ,   nz   (01.13.07)
10. Condi and Tzipi
Tracy W   (01.13.07)
If these two ladies were applying for jobs based on their past accomplishments, they wouldn't get hired. Condi is responsible for the disastrous results in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Tzipi is part of a government that lost a war and is destroying the country. Neither of them represents a government with popular support. What makes them think that they know what's best for Israel?
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (01.13.07)
Are you sure............Condoliza that you have an option for peace or is this trip to do with yet last attempt to implicate others what you yourself could not achieve???
12. The only solution
Tracy W   (01.13.07)
is for the Arabs to be absorbed into Jordan. How many Palestinian states do they need? These people have proven again and again that they cannot govern themselves and cannot live in peace with anyone, not even among themselves. Who in his right mind would think of establishing a country for a society in such a state of chaos and so extremely hateful and violent. The US and the Israeli government are pretending they don't see what Abbas really represents, the same way they kidded themselves for years about Arafat's 'peaceful intentions'. It's time for the media to expose Abbas to the point where nobody can call him a "moderate" any more. Why are they so fixated on creating this new state when there's nothing, absolutely nothing, that indicates these people are mature and ready for it. Unless there's a more insidious agenda, of course. Let Jordan assume responsibility for their Arabs once and for all.
13. to no 7
tommy ,   belfast uk   (01.13.07)
Rice should take up writing fairy tales I dont see how these people come up with such nonsense-- The air supply to her aeroplane should be checked immediately--it might be some form of narcosis Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday called on Palestinians to refrain from internal fighting and to direct their guns only against Israeli "occupation."
14. Madam Secretary, what about Gilad, Udi and Eldad
David ,   Karmiel, Israel   (01.13.07)
You sold us down the line in Lebanon and now what are you going to do to appease your Oil Friends? Everyone talks about our "good fiend" the USA. Let's face it, the USA has only one real friend and that is Israel. Yes, you have the veto power in the UN but we have the only stable infrastructure in the Middle East and the only securs ports for your 6th Fleet in the Mediterranean. So, you need us and we need you. Please don’t sell us out again. There are a lot of lives at stake here, Dr. Rice!
15. Golda Meir
Israel   (01.13.07)
Since we are talking about strong outstanding women, let’s remember Golda Meir just for a moment. Golda said: “When they (the Palestinians) love their children more than they hate us, then, and only then will there be peace!” Sadly that day has not come yet… let’s not waist our time. Come back in a few years, maybe things will be different, as for now, as we see the festivities the Palestinians have every time they bury a Martyr that was able to fill his dream and kill a Jew, we still understand that the day that Golda was talking about is not quite here yet… Sad but true.
16. Rice Concessions bring DEATH and Destruction to Israel
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (01.13.07)
17. Nightmare
tommy ,   belfast uk   (01.13.07)
I think I am in the middle of the worst nightmare ever Encouraging sign: PA strike ends On the backdrop of Haniyeh's speech in Gaza, an agreement was signed Saturday afternoon in Ramallah between the Palestinian government and the president's office, according to which the civil servants will end the general strike they launched in September due to the failure to pay their wages. They can be paid now thanks to the Great Satan RAMALLAH – The United States, aided by Israel, over the last few weeks has provided 7,000 assault rifles and more than 1 million rounds of ammunition to militias associated with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party, senior Fatah militants told WND. and According to documents revealed Friday, the Bush administration will provide $86.4 million to strengthen security forces loyal to Abbas, including Force 17, Abbas' security detail, which also serves as de facto police units in the Gaza Strip and West Bank. Where does this sickness end???????
18. Not Again ..

GWB Jr sends his lapdog to cause even more ruckus. :( - Terry
19. condi is delusional
debra ,   usa   (01.13.07)
there will be no peace in the middle east until the iranian hitler and his nuclear sites are destroyed by america or israel. the madman of iran is funding, REWARDING, and training all the terrorists surrounding israel and that includes the pals. that leaves these idiots with no incentive for peace with israel. condi, WAKE UP and smell the rockets being fired into israel.

the corruption in the israeli government pales compared with the one in any muslim organization, hammas, fatah, lebanese government, hizbullah et al. do not delude yourself. politics is corrupt everywhere. and the do gooders are doing good ultimatelly for themselves and their bank accounts (fatah, hammas, hizbullah) rather than for the population they represent. corruption in the israeli government has nothing to do with the peace process. however, i believe that greed and corruption has a lot to do with thise jihadi militant muslim factions like hammas who they are not ready to negotiate peace with israel. if peace comes, then all these jihadies will be out of a job. all the milions of dollars already sent to the tgerritories and the "palestinians" in gaza and west bank dissapeared into the leaders pockets. just go ask suha arafat. terror doesn't bring peace, but it pays!!!!!

TWO MATURE MARBIE DOLLS! Let's put them back in the doll house. There they might have better luck there in making peace with the other dolls.

23. Butt Kissing Leaders Will Destroy Israel As A Jewish State
Adina Kutnicki   (01.13.07)
Fellow zionists - look at the very pleased, delighted and ass kissing expression on Tzipi's face. The compulsive need for many Jews and especially Israel's leaders to be accepted is what will keep Israel from being a strong, independent and Jewish state. The fact of the matter is that these power brokers are NOT interested in Israel remaining a Jewish state. Israel's delusional leaders are ready to sacrifice our homeland to be 'accepted' in the world club. Think I'm off base? How else to explain the myriad of awful decisions that weaken Israel's national security from the power brokers in Israel? Are they all stupid, naiive, dense or just plain crazy?
24. #16 agree with you, Rice's concessions to Israel do
