1. Mairead Corrigan was treated for injury in leg sustained by
good, stay at home, silly bitch
2. I wonder if Corrigan protested................
Drumgoole ,   Newark NJ   (04.20.07)
I wonder if Corrigan ever protested the suicide bombings of Israeli buses or the Dolphinarium. But, considering the decision by the British Jounalest Union to boycott Israel because Israel tried to rescue kidnapped soldiers from terrorists sworn to destroy Israel, I doubt it. It's a shame that the bullet wasn't real and aimed a little higher.
3. Nobel Shmobel
leon ,   Grand Rapids USA   (04.20.07)
Arafat was a laureate. Political balderdash. Enemies of Zion.
4. COOL...fed up with the pro-terror Leftists
5. Not Worth A Comment.
Terry ,   Eilat, Israel   (04.20.07)
6. Has the israeli occupation forces any limites ?
I'm sure Kayak was a threat to the soldiers safety but still. The situation is more and more crazy in the West Bank.
7. injured
colin ,   israel   (04.20.07)
Pity that the soldiers used rubber bullets.A real piece of metal is more than she deserves.How can Israel let this rotten traitors into the country.?Let her go and demonstrate where she got the peace prize.
8. you'd think a nobel laureate was smarter than that
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (04.20.07)
whoever goes where bullets (rubber or real) are being shot, stands a much better chance of being shot than those who stay away. you don't have to be smart to figure that out.
9. Their is no such thing as a security fence. IT IS A WALL!
AR ,   USA   (04.20.07)
Why do you have to distort it from what it is. We all know its a wall why dose the media call it a fence? What a crock o s.
10. Peaceful Protests
Ben   (04.20.07)
Israelis say that Palestinians need to learn to use non-violent means of resistance, rather than violence. But every time Palestinians try to use non-violent protests Israeli forces violently attack the protesters. If only the rest of the world would see the way the Israeli soldiers inhumanely treat these peaceful protesters, then they would put pressure on Israel to end the evil occupation. But it seems the world - especially the US - only cares when an Israeli is killed by a Palestinian, but if a Palestinian is killed there is little, if any, mention here in the American media.
11. Corrigan Shmorrigan
Nachman M'Uman ,   Yerushalayin I"H   (04.20.07)
The words of a genius -"I want to say that this separation wall, contrary to what the Israeli say, will not prevent attacks and violence..." I suppose the number of attacks is due to some other reason - why do these people have to stick their noses where they are not wanted. Maybe we should have gone over to Northern Ireland and supported the Protestants against the Catholics _ I wonder what this idiot woman would have said then.
12. Go see how long you last in Gaza dumb woman
13. WELL SAID #1
stude ham   (04.20.07)
These peace activists only inflame the tensions and must be barred from even getting into the country. So she got hurt??? aw... pity... tough! by the way... her 'peace prize' puts her into the same league as the thankfully dead arafat.
14. All these foreign "peace" activists
Kevin G ,   Oregon, USA   (04.20.07)
should be required to attend an educational workshop as a requirement for a permit to engage in these kind of protests. These people have grown up with a steady diet of biased European press reporting, of university activism where pro-Israel groups are not allowed to organize or express themselves, and of a steady, and very effective lobbying by pro-Arab groups. And no few of them have financial incentives as well. The Israeli side of things has totally escaped them. That there have been hundreds of casualties of terror does not seem to bother them, in part because the European press has avoided showing the actual pictures of the resulting carnage. And I wonder about Israeli laws allowing foreigners confronting Israeli police. Aren't they charged with something? Maybe the penalty should be ten or twenty hours of education.
15. contrary to what the Israeli say, will not prevent attacks a
yes, exactly, now they kill each other. To a point that sympathizers and "journalists" don't dare to enter Gaza shabat shalom
16. thank you to this marion cardigan

trumeldor ,   eurabia   (04.20.07)
I rode it along back and forth Out of 450 kms,20 kms are made of concrete to prevent snippers to shoot motorists driving along highway no 6 You do not believe me? Come and see by yourself instead of spitting leftist venom By the way,leftist EU is building the same along romanian -ukranian borders Is your venom spit only at Jews???
18. puerto rico
Israel Zwick ,   nyc   (04.20.07)
Puerto rico has been "occupied territory" for over 100 years so let them protest over there. Judea and Shomron are liberated Jewsih areas.
19. separation wall is it legal or illegal
chaim ,   miami beach USA   (04.20.07)
In the current war against terrorism is building a wall for the protection of its citizens, is it legal or illegal?, if such activity is illegal please explain this and why is their no protests against this illegal wall US military builds wall around Sunni Baghdad area Published: 04.20.07, 17:44 / Israel News US troops are building a wall around a Sunni enclave in Baghdad, part of a strategy to "break the cycle of sectarian violence" In the Iraqi capital. Work began on April 10 on the 5-km cement wall at Adhamiya, a mainly Sunni Arab area surrounded on three sides by Shi'ite communities. "The wall is one of the centrepieces of a new strategy by coalition and Iraqi forces to break the cycle of sectarian violence," Sergeant Mike Pryor, a public affairs officer, wrote in an article released by the US military.

20. Rashid; Take back your country of Arabia!
Palestiniansareamyth ,   USA   (04.20.07)
And take the rest of the Arabs occupiers back with you.
21. event against Israel law
s.y   (04.20.07)
Protest in no access military zone is against Israel law no matter who took part in the event: Noble Price winner leftist Israeli or Palestinian. What about the punishment?
22. Lock them up, then deport them
Raymond from DC ,   Washington, DC USA   (04.20.07)
Why Israeli security people are so tolerant of these regular protests is beyond me. Hold them in jail for at least three days (no more "arrest and release"). Let them know a second violation will result in immediate deportation and restrictions on future entry. I'd be even tougher with those affiliated with ISM. They should be declared persona non grata and booted out.
BOB ,   NY,NY   (04.20.07)
I pray she will never walk again! Pice of crap!
24. Anti Semites unite under banner of "leftists"
Mush DeLeon ,   Brooklyn, New York   (04.20.07)
They are really just anarchist, Arabist, Stalinist, anti-Semitic, rabble-rousers. They are enemies of the Jews, and must be treated as such. Rubber bullets won't do the trick - she'll be back.
25. I care more about our policemen who are doing there job !
redkmike ,   tel aviv and london   (04.20.07)
Can someone please explain to me what is happening in Beilin (sorry I meant Bilin but seems like it's the same sh*t) ? Has this fence been finished ? Is it still under construction ? If yes why hasn't it been finished ? thanks for any info. Mike
26. did she visit yad-vashem first? rashid:
johnie walker   (04.20.07)
you are our hero. mairead sweater and tito dinghy. . shabbat shalom.
27. #6 - you are right. Hamas is trying to take over !
redkmike ,   tel aviv and london   (04.20.07)
If that happens. No rubber bullets. Just kidnappings, ransoms and decapitations. Pray that Israel remains in control .. Mike.
28. Bilin weekly protests
Daniel Goldwater ,   Auckland New Zealand   (04.20.07)
I am amazed and bemused that every week another foreign celeb is arrested or inured at these weekly disturbances. Surely any foreign national that arrives in Israel on a tourist visa and then joins protests against the State of Israel is in contravention of the terms of that visa and should be promptly arrested and ejected from the country. Why on earth would any democratic country protect the rights of foreign nationals to the "right of protest/freedom of speech" when their only intention is to undermine that country.
29. Do the ever look over the other side of the fence?
Tracy W   (04.20.07)
"Acting Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council Sheik Ahmad Bahr from Hamas, Declared during a Friday Sermon at a Sudan Mosque that America and Israel Will Be Annihilated and Called upon Allah to Kill the Jews and the Americans "to the Very Last One"...... ....The Palestinian woman bids her son farewell, and says to him: "Son, go and don't be a coward. Go, and fight the Jews." He bids her farewell and carries out a martyrdom operation. Source: Memri TV (thanks to Little Green Footballs)
30. to #9 you know what is a crock of shit?
jason white ,   afula,israel   (04.20.07)
What you have between your filthy ears! Most of the barrier is barbed wire. The barrier is to protect us from suicide bomber and other terrorists.If we had a government with guts they would warn the arabs one more attack would mean carpet bombing a few villages and leaving thousands of dead arabs.Then maybe they would learn and we would not need to build this.Or better yet exile them from our holy land and make it palestinian free.
