1. Blood fueds, murder and mayhem.
Joe ,   Ohio, USA   (03.13.07)
Hey, Just another day in Gaza! May these people enjoy themselves and spend the rest of their miserable collective lives doing what they do best. Killing each other and dying in droves. No sympathy here!
2. I think I got it now.
stanich ,   romania   (03.13.07)
So it seems to me that I finally have allah figured out. All the time muslims say "If god is willing", or something to that effect, when they go to do something. So allah is willing that muslims kill muslims, jews, americans, russians, and europeans. Also the chinese, japanese, hawaians, eskimos, pakistanis, and indians. And lets not forget australians, hatians, and the somalians. So really the only ones who are safe for now from being killed are the imams who incite the crowds, and mosques, because allah needs them to keep telling them to tell the people that allah will is that they kill. And how long do you think they can keep their jobs if they kill everyone off?
3. good riddance to bad smelly rubbish
4. one question
are these thugs employed? on both sides, i mean. do they have a full time job? a place they work during the day? are they employed? do they read? spend time with family? enjoy a strol in the park? who are these people that have so much time to wonder the streets, protest, aim guns, kill and assasinate?

I always say that if they're busy killing each other, they're lazier about killing us. (Us is broadly defined, they less so.)
10. you really got it, stanich
former Romanian ,   Jerusalem   (03.14.07)

11. Much easier for IDF
Micha   (03.14.07)
with one less gang leader. If only the world understood. These are not governments. They are gangs. Every county has their gangs. Most of the time the gangs are not in control of the populace. But in the moslem world, that unfortunately is the rule of law. these are gangs. plain and simple. don't confuse politics in this mess. these people don't give a rat's ass. they want to kill. that is all. good day.
12. this may be surprising for some, not me, because
indormed ,   usa   (03.14.07)
i am coming from iran, and more than my own profession i know what is happeing in the middle east(where i am from), and what has happened in the past. well you think that the only fight is between the sunnis and shiites? then you do not know enough. the shiites have many sections, the shiites of iran are tweleve immamite, and they hate and fight with the sixt imamite, while there are many other branches that have been killing each other, any peaceful version that has emerged in these lands have been brutally murdered. look at the bahaiis, that is peaceful version of islam. and they are under most sever persecution in middle east, the history that how they have been treated is one of the chapters that need contemplation. from the time that mohamed took power in saudi arabia, till now it has been spliting and fight and killing and murder and assasination and mayham and ... those that are surprised by this type of news are plainly ignorant.
13. What happens if an insect falls in a cup of coffee ?!
American   (03.14.07)
What happens if an insect falls in a cup of coffee ?! The British: will throw the cup into the street and leave the coffee shop for good. The American: will get the insect out and drink the coffee. The Chinese: will eat the insect and drink the coffee. The Israeli will: (1) Sell the coffee to the American and the insect to the Chinese. (2) Cry on all media channels that he feels insecure. (3) Accuse the Palestinians, Hizb Allah, Syria and Iran of using germ-weapons. (4) Keep on crying about anti-Semitism and violations of human rights. (5) Ask the Palestinian President to stop planting insects in the cups of coffee. (6) Re-occupy the West Bank, Gaza Strip. (7) Demolish houses, confiscate lands, cut water and electricity from Palestinian houses and randomly shoot Palestinians. (8) Ask the United States for urgent military support and a loan of one million dollars in order to buy a new cup of coffee. (9) Ask the United Nations to punish the coffee-shop owner by making him offer free coffee to him till the end of the century. (10) Last but not least, accuse the whole world to be standing still, not even sympathizing with the Israeli Nation.

Stop, stop, please stop giving us a piece of your mind. After reading your comments, you clearly need what little mind you have left.
15. #12 indormed: I know this is true.
I do not know much about the ME, but about 15 years ago I worked (in the US) with a man who was a discharged US soldier. He said he had been stationed for a while in Lebanon in the early 1980s. He told me basically what you state. He told me how dangerous it was in the streets of Lebanon because there were various obscure extremist groups who had NO PROBLEM killing you if you did not believe the way they did. I cannot imagine what it must be like for a peaceful person who just wants to get up in the morning and try to enjoy a little bit of his or her life. It is truly a tragedy that innocent, peaceful people must suffer at the hands of those with the guns.

19. #15- I think it would be kind of like being a Palestinian
Larissa ,   Australia   (03.14.07)
In Israel... (Zionist) "various obscure extremist groups who had NO PROBLEM killing you if you"... weren't a Jew. I was actually in Lebanon during that period. I was a baby. My uncle was shot in the back of his head because he was wearing a cross around his neck. I hate religion. I hate muslim religion, i hate christianity and i hate Judaism. It is what all war is about. Religion. (I'm still catholic anyway. just making a point) No religion can tolerate the other. We do not hate each other. We hate each others religion. As long as religion exists there will be war. I think God forgot to emphasise the part about "tolerence & acceptance of others"
20. #13- I thought that was rather funny
Larissa ,   Australia   (03.14.07)
from reading most of peoples posts on this site.... what you have decribed is an exaggerated truth
21. Ban guns, establish democracy, stop lying to arab populace..
Hiram ,   tel aviv   (03.14.07)
...and then the problems will be solved. hamas has been lying to their constituents since day one. They have accomplished nothing except starting up reprisals against them. They are the shame of the arab world and have no political maturity as if they had, they would ahve already won the heart of the population and Palestinians would eat everyday. Hamas does not deserve to be called a "party " . hamas is an Islamic terror organisation. I certainly will not blame whoever decided to eliminate this man. I will certainly not blame Hamas either for the killing to come of those who have set up Haddad...nor the killing of those who will agenge the death of those who .......etc.. Ban guns in gaza and the territories....establish democracy, secularize , roll up your sleeves and get to work for a change !
22. #19, Larissa
Regarding your subject point, I thought it likely that someone would try to flip the logic of my comment. I will let a Jew (Zionist) respond to that point. It is terrible what happened to your uncle and countless other families. I also understand your feelings about religion. However, the answer is not as simple as some would have you believe. i.e., "We do not hate each other. We hate each others religion. As long as religion exists there will be war." The God that I worship is a god of love and of peace. He would not have his worshipers take up arms in war. They do not do so today and, in fact, were persecuted and imprisoned during the world wars for refusing to do so. How can that be when most religions who claim to represent "god" turn a blind eye to political meddling and violence? Very simple. 99% of them are apostate, counterfeit organizations who do not represent the true God at all. As a great prophet said, "You will recognize them by their fruit." You say that you remain a catholic. Do you know what religion Hitler was? Do you know that one of his goals was to broaden the realm of the germanic catholic church? I don't have to tell you what his methods were. Now, if you hate religion and believe that it is the cause of all wars, how do you remain a catholic? Is this not inconsistent with what you believe in your heart? I can tell you that there are people who live and practice their faith in a way that you would expect servants of a kind and caring god to practice. You kind find them, but your own inconsistent beliefs, and prejudice against religion in general, make it difficult for you to listen when you have the opportunity. I would encourage you to open your heart and become more tolerant and accepting yourself. Then maybe you will recognize the truth when you hear it.
23. #13 "American" you are an embarassment to my country
Embarassed in ,   USA   (03.14.07)
Your comments exemplify why people all around the world think we are the stupidest people on the planet with the most impoverished education system. Compared to you, Homer Simpson is an intellectual giant. And that goes for you too, Larissa: the nasty racist from down under.
24. To #13, 15 and 19 stick to the topic!
This article was about palestinian on palestinian violence. Don't turn it into a forum for expressing your racist views. I find it a blatant contradiction that Larissa expresses so much hatred for everybody's religious faith and then tries to preach "tolerance and acceptance of others" in her last statement. (Especially when she declares that she is a Catholic, but hates her own religion, which means she hates part of herself.) If she were truly accepting and tolerant, she wouldn't be so judgemental and close-minded. It is a sad and pathetic commentary on her jaundiced view of people. She needs to find her own acceptance and tolerance in order to heal the sickness of mind called racism and hatred.
25. #24, You should cut back on the coffee yourself.
#15   (03.15.07)
First, I don't see how I made a racist comment. Obviously, "indormed" is not jewish, but he had something of value to contribute and he presented it in a factual, respectful manner. I appreciated his insight and responded with what I had awareness of. That does not mean that I dislike Iranians or Israelis, or like one more than the other. As regards Larissa, I don't think she is addressing race, she is addressing religion. While I don't feel the same way, many people do and I can understand why they are confused and feel as they do. You have called 2 people racists here who did not even address the subject of race. Have a few posts strayed from the center-kine of the topic? Possibly--but that's going to happen. However, in complaining about it you went on for a long paragraph yourself on the very subject you are upset that Larissa strayed to. So, you are guilty of the same thing. (It is very easy the stray off topic isn't it?) You should calm down. There is a difference between expressing ones beliefs or feelings and attacking someone. No need to become angry over respectful dialog that you might not happen to agree with. I do agree, however, that 13 was racist. It's one thing to make a joke. Another to push it way too far.
26. Oops, sorry #15 you're right i inadvertently
#24 to #25 ,   USA   (03.16.07)
cited your post but I really meant to grill 13 and 19, who are full of hate. I do not appreciate it when posters like 13 and 15 stray from the topic and turn the conversation to their political grievence du jour. BTW, I do not think that 19's posts are respectful of anybody, because she expresses generalized hatred. She clearly needs some psychiatric help. p.s. I do not drink coffee, but sometimes the thrill of debate gives me an adrenaiine rush...
