1. Chirac: Mind Your Own Business.
Terry ,   Eilat, Israel   (03.09.07)
Good or bad, the only opinion that counts is America's. Stop pretending that anyone care's about France's position, that's just political grandstanding. Stick to making cheese & wine - it's what your country does best.
2. Poor Chirac!!!
Z+M. ,   France   (03.09.07)
Chirac is hurt because nobody in France wants him, he is a lonely fellow aged and old fashioned and like everybody in this earth he must find a scapgoat .
3. first step BACK
shimon ,   madrid   (03.09.07)
We are going back to the eighties when Arafat didn't want to recognize the right of Israel to exist. Hamas will be recognized by Europe i fear, the only hope is that Britain will stop this deal. Shameful, there'll be no peace until they assume Jews will never leave Eretz Israel
Safia ,   ALGERIA   (03.09.07)
Hey israelis,let the palestinians build their unity,give to them a chance,to proof to the world that bad can become good,and the fact,about liars,you jews are not angels..time of peace is now or never,forgive to each other,this is the only way;take it or leave it.....
5. #1 - It would be nice ...
Survivor's Child ,   Europe   (03.09.07)
It would be nice if the only opinion that counted was Israel's - but perhaps not right now. Your current leaders seem to hate your country more than your enemies.
6. Ignorant fool! What does he know? Only
the lies the Arabs feed him.
7. let me think about it... no.
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (03.09.07)
chirac says what he says because he knows that he can get away with betraying his and france's values and morals just to gain favor with terrorists. but it will do him no good. the terrorists will want to destroy him and france because they are not islamic, and he is alienating his allies who will, yet again, have to sacrifice lives and treasure to save france's tail. if france had to control their own destiny (and not always have others to bail them out) france would not be doing what it is doing.
8. Bye bye chirac,still 3 months to go
trumpeldor ,   eurabia   (03.09.07)
You will not be missed See his features,this guy is finished...
9. Chirac is toast soon -Sarko is less Arab kissass
10. Safia , ALGERIA
NOT your kind of peace
11. Chirac should go to early retirement
Mikulas ,   Bratislava, Slovakia   (03.09.07)
Soon, Israel will have a new contact in France, the very pro Israel Sarkozy would be the best solution for Israel. He leads in the polls right now over there. Chirac has been a disaster for the Middle East, regardless of the confidence that Christian Lebanese have on him because of his stance against Syria.
12. Absolutely typical
Paul ,   London, UK   (03.09.07)
Quel surprise... It was once said of Chirac that he never met an Arab dictator he didn't like. This is the man who rolled out the red carpet for Arafat.
13. As they say
Meni   (03.09.07)
You can tell we're in a world war because the French have already surrendered.
14. Sarko!,offer French 30 hour week and you'll win landslide.
Alan ,   SA   (03.09.07)
.Also offer more Benefits than exist today to all . Increase Immigration Quota (of course from all Africa & Mahreb) Give training allowance for Car Burning Courses as a bonus to young people in Banlieus&HLM.
15. France and appeasement....
DR ,   Florida, USA   (03.09.07)
is there no limit to France's cowardice? They will do anything, sell out anyone and bend over just to appease their muslim friends. Have a backbone for crying out loud!!!
16. france
no deal and no lifting of aid sanctions to the palestinians until the quartet's demands are met. no half ass promises. either they renounce violence and publicly recognize israel as a sovereign nation with a right to exist, or no aid. we'll all be back to point zero if these demands are not met and the money, again, would be used to empower the terrorist militias in gaza and west bank. these leaders will have to publicly declare in front of the world that they do, not intend, to meet all these demands and sign a peace agreement with israel and prove that their signature is notv just dusat in the desert. release the soldiers and proceed to use the aid money for growth rather than hate and violence and death. france can talk all it wants. chirac is a scared puppet. he needs to appease the arab population in paris and all of france. stay out chirac, unless you are wholy committed to israel's safety and survival. until then, buzz off.
17. chirac, talking again from PARISTAN
18. What a nice man...
Ram ,   London   (03.09.07)
.always bending over to petrodollars.
19. Abbas: "Raise RIFLES Against the ISRAELI OCCUPATION"
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (03.09.07)
Global terrorist Arafat, adored by international elites, had more Jewish blood on his hands than anyone since Hitler was the most invited foreign leader to the Clinton White House. Arafat ordered the barbaric murders of two U.S. diplomats in Khartoum in 1973, U.S. Ambassador to Sudan, George Curtis Moore-highest ranking black man in the Foreign Service, and his replacement as Ambassador, Cleo Noel. Sudan's President Jaafar Numeiry stated that one of the captured terrorists confessed the entire operation had been orchestrated by Fatah headquarters in Beirut. Terror partner with Arafat for 40 years, Fatah leader Abbas co-founded the PLO terrorist organization with Arafat in 1964. Holocaust denier Abbas paid the terrorists who massacred Israeli athletes in Munich in 1972. Admired and praised effusively by U.S leaders, Fatah leader, Abbas' security forces have murdered more Israeli civilians than Hamas. The U.S. EU UN call the war against the Jews, the peace process. When the U.S. EU UN talk about the peace process, this is the peace they refer to: Abbas: "Raise Rifles Against the Israeli Occupation" Jan 14, '07 by WorldNetDaily's Aaron Klein "Raise [your] rifles against the Israeli occupation," Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas declared Thursday in Ramallah. In a speech commemorating the 42nd anniversary of the founding of his Fatah party, the PA chief called on Arab factions to put an end to weeks of infighting and instead fight Israel. "Shooting at your brother is forbidden. Raising rifles against the occupation is our legitimate right, but raising guns against each other is forbidden. We should put our internal fighting aside and raise our rifles only against the Israeli occupation," said Abbas in a speech in the Muqata compound in Ramallah attended by World Net Daily... His statements about using rifles against Israel come after the United States, aided by Ehud Olmert, over the last few weeks provided 7,000 assault rifles and more than 1 million rounds of ammunition to militias associated with Abbas' Fatah party, according to senior Fatah militants... He also used Quranic verses to claim Jews are corrupting the world. "The sons of Israel are mentioned as those who are corrupting humanity on earth," Abbas said... According to documents revealed Friday, the Bush administration will provide $86.4 million to strengthen security forces loyal to Abbas... Like other recent confirmed arms transfers from Egypt and the U.S., the latest American weapons shipments were driven through Israeli checkpoints by convoys protected by the Israeli Defense Forces... It is extremely alarming that Abbas/Fatah enjoy the total cooperation of US/Israeli leaders to wage war on Israel's Jewish innocents. Where are the human rights organizations?
20. Chirac want international conditions dropped
zionist forever   (03.09.07)
The Mecca agreement had nothing to do with the so called peace process or any other international issues this was hamas and fatah to work out a deal between themselves to try and stop the palestian infighting. This agreement does not accept the 3 international demands so whats there to endorse. Chirac is looking for a way to start giving the money again even without the palestians meeting the demands. If enough countries are backing the Mecca agreement then they can say look we all think the money should be given again and the number of countries in support of this outnumber the US thats democracy.
21. What makes Chirac court murderous and deceitful Arabs?
Uzi ,   Haifa   (03.09.07)
His 10% Moslem minority.
22. Chirac..........Shake your head
Ryan ,   Calgary, Canada   (03.09.07)
Painting stripes on a horse doesn't make it a zebra. This is not math class two negatives don't make a positive.
23. Linda #19
Jackie ,   Florida   (03.09.07)
In your condemnations of Abu Mazen (his nom de guerre) you forgot one of his major distinctions, as financier of the Munich Olympics massacre. He can, in my opinion, never atone for that one!
24. Endorse Away, Won't Stop the Infighting
Bruce ,   Kentucky, USA   (03.10.07)
Q: How much do the Palestinians care about the opinions of Chirac, the EU, the Saudis? A: Even less than Stalin cared for the fifth column support of useful fools in the West. To paraphrase a popular WWII ditty, "Praise Allah/And pass the ammunition!"
25. I urge France to Shut up!!!
DR ,   Florida, USA   (03.14.07)
They have no say whatsoever in this matter. They have shown their true colors before when it really counted and the world saw that France is weak and will appease anyone for peace and quiet. No thanks!!!
