Eric ,   Israel   (07.10.07)
*points at English guy*....HAHAHAHAHAHA!
32. #29 Englishguy (Englishschmuck)
Sidney ,   USA   (07.10.07)
Are you totally ignorant of English history? England is in a special class in history with the Romans for stealing other people's lands. What do you think that the "British empire" was? To quote you "A whole lifestyle based on stolen property. You disgust me. "
33. If I see syrian or arab flags in israel i'll take them down
Gidi ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (07.10.07)
34. To No.29 English guy.... ignorance is bliss
Gidi ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (07.10.07)
When your people still climbed trees, our people wrote the bible. You know who said that ? How dare you the holder of a citizenship which brought the world the most atrocious crimes in mankind history, who colonized half the world including our Land of Israel to call our jewish holy land hell-hole ? Gush Etzion and the Judea area is our cradle of land from which we were expelled by force. Where is your homeland ? that you conquered from vikings ? from the scots ? irish ? return the falkland islands to the Argentians, then speak.
35. To English Guy - I don't apologize
Besalel ,   Kew Gardens, NY   (07.10.07)
I don't apologize for the centuries of hatred we faced when the Jews were guests in the lands of the Diaspora. I don't apologize for the pogroms and the murders and rapes we endured as visitors in your lands. I don't apologize for the Holocausts and the millions of babies slaughtered that the enlightened nations gifted us. I don't apologize for being a Jew. Every inch of Israel (including Efrat) belongs to the Jewish people. We were illegally evicted thousands of years ago but we never lost hope that we will return. The Arab squatters who have stolen our land should be grateful that we are not like them and we did not do to them what they would have done to us had they won the many wars they started. The Arabs can have all the oil they want and the rest of the Middle East. We have one, tiny Israel that belongs to us alone. If you don't like it I suggest you have a nice cold glass of water and cool menthol cigarette.
36. To Anglo Dude
JPS ,   Efrat   (07.10.07)
Egads? Stolen land? Quick! Send the police! No, send the Church police! Quick, Mr. Anglo Dude - what's the statute of limitations on "stolen land"? Seriously, how long does somebody have to squat on your land before it becomes theirs? I need you to tell, so I can figure out how long I have to squat before you'll recognize Efrat as being mine. You see, my great great great grandpappy lived here 2000 years ago, and since Efrat was stolen from him various "Palestinians" have squatted on his land. They kicked him and the family out and made them refugees. In fact they wandered around for centuries while people like you Brits kicked 'em around and slit their throats (a la York massacre). And if you can't tell me what the statute of limitations is, then hey, this must be my grandpappy's and I've already claimed it back. And please, English Dude, for a guy who comes from the imperialist nation that raped much of the world for centuries, you should be more concerned with the reparations your country still owes.
37. Peace Not
Kyle ,   Southpark, CO, USA   (07.10.07)
It should be obvious by now to anyone who has two brain cells to rub together that this gang's agenda is not about achieving "peace" but carrying out the instructions of the EU who is paying their salary.

AK   (07.10.07)
also look up some real history books -- the US was nowhere near israel during 1948. 1956, 1967 wars. But you're right, Israel should have delt with their Arab neighbors, especially Syria, once and for all. The problem was that the Soviets and the US threatened Israel if they did.
39. The public wants peace now ????
Nora ,   Tel Aviv   (07.10.07)
The peace now movement grabs and steals the best words in the world: 1. Peace, 2. Now, 3. People. They use those words ad nauseam till people start to beleive their lies. It goes like that: "Most of the peple in Israel want peace now with the Palestinians, Syrians etc...." No statistics needed, What they really mean is: Israel should give back territories to Palestinians and Syrians. History is full of name grabbers like that: Work is liberty (Concentration camps), Democratic Republic of China (Mao`s communism) etc.etc...
40. Peace now instead conveyed they are Syrian traitors
Steve ,   USA   (07.10.07)
B"H When you fly the flag of the enemy nation in a public place, it shows which countries you support. Their message might have been intended one way, but I read it actually being conveyed that Peace Now represents treason by supporting an enemy state in a public place.
41. Good Jews
Jon ,   Las Vegas NV USA   (07.10.07)
Baruch Marzel and Itamar Ben-Gvir are two true Jews and Israelis. The rest of Am Israel should follow the example.
42. Morons. Look what Syria does to its "friends"
Zvi   (07.10.07)
43. Did al-Assad junior pay them to do this?
Avraham ,   NYC   (07.10.07)
44. Israel, Scrutinize "Peace" Now's funding
Malcolm   (07.10.07)
They get most of their funding from Europe. There is sure to be Saudi and Iranian money involved.
45. But would there be arrests for vandalizing the Syrian flag?
Steve ,   USA   (07.10.07)
B"H I wonder if this is a government move. If that Syrian flag gets vandalized, who is expecting arrests for the act, and who is expecting government support? Let us have an informal poll on this topic. I bet the government of Israel would arrest someone taking down the Syrian flags here and that is why no one has done that. Is that really the case? What does that say about Israel right now when people are afraid to take down the flag of enemy nations on supposedly Jewish land?
46. To every one
charles ,   petach tikva   (07.10.07)
He , do'nt you want peace ? do you want that your , and my , children and grandchildren have to fight other wars ? What do you think of living in peace here , without all those safety guards , without fearing quassams on Sderot , or katyoushas on the North ? Ok ? i'm right , everyone wants peace , for sure . Now there is a problem , how to obtain this ? with whom can we talk ? our adversaries certainly want also peace , on their conditions , or better one condition : an arab state from Jordan river to the sea . Well , this we can't accept , even "Peace now" will not . We have to discuss it , do'nt forget : you make peace with your enemies . This happened also in Europe where the greatest enemies , France and Germany , live in a total peace , a peace we can only dream of here i think .
47. Piss Now
Jew ,   Rome-Italy   (07.10.07)
"We will have peace with the Arabs when they will love their children more than they hate us." Golda Meir
48. my suggestion is that they should
jack bauer ,   usa   (07.10.07)
try and fly Israeli flags nears the highways over in syria
49. English guy, you really don't get it, do you?
Jake   (07.11.07)
You never did 'get it', none of you. PEACE is not a golden cow to worship and then attack others with hatred and vitreol when the worship of the golden cow fails to become the law of the land. Peace is a concept, an ideal. But let's look at the reality, not the dream, as it stands at the moment. Syria is a a sworn enemy of Israel which has been in a state of war with Israel for 60 years. To fly the Syrian flag in Israel is like flying the Nazi flag in Britain in 1940. And the comments here are valid, and you failed to address them. Why aren't there peace groups in Damascus flying the Israeli flag, and Israelis visiting Damascus? There is something wrong with this picture, and nothing you can say can cover it up.
50. 'English guy', your suggestion is the British reality
Jake   (07.11.07)
"My suggestion would be Hizbullah flags over the town hall in Atlanta" Very funny, except that a variation on that theme is already happening in London. Rome conquered Greece, which then conquered Rome with its culture. This was fortunate for Rome, though. Britain conquered the Middle East and Islamic lands, which is now conquering Britain with its culture. Lucky you! ;-)
51. English guy's definition of 'village lands'
Jake   (07.11.07)
Village lands are in fact not privately owned land belonging to Arabs at all , but just lands that Arab villages had access to, though were not necessarily even used for farming or anything else. Efrat is in fact part of the Gush Etzion , which existed before 1948, and whose existence came to an in a horrific massacre perpetrated by Arab 'irregulars' and the Trans-jordanian Arab Legion, which was presided over, let me remind you, by a British serving officer John Bagot Glubb 'Pasha'.
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (07.11.07)
Around 1948, one million Jews suffered violent RELIGIOUS Jew cleansing from Arab countries. Arab governments seized the land, farms, homes, hospitals, schools, businesses and bank accounts of the Jews. Most Jewish refugees fled to Israel where the religious terror war against Jews NEVER stops. Global war is waged to subjugate every nation under Islamic sharia law - it is unacceptable to Islamists for Jews to have self-rule. The 1948 Jewish refugees and their descendants who make up a majority of Israel's Jewish citizens MUST be compensated in land and finances! There NEVER was an Arab country of Palestine. Jerusalem was NEVER the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Jewish Bible, not once in the Koran. Muslims ALREADY HAVE an Arab Palestinian State. In 1922, Britain illegally gave 80% of Jewish Palestine to Muslims. The area became Jordan, giving Muslims an Arab Palestinian State on Jewish land. The new Arab country was religiously cleansed of Jews. After Jews miraculously transformed desert and swamps into rich, agricultural land in Jewish Palestine, Arabs came in large numbers from Arab countries for jobs from Jews. The fact that the overwhelming majority of Arabs resided only briefly in Palestine is attested to by the special UN decree: that any Arab who had resided in Palestine FOR ONLY TWO YEARS BEFORE 1948, and then left, would be considered a refugee and so would his descendants!!! The inalienable rights of Jews to live in the Jewish ancestral homeland must not be violated! In 1948, Egypt invaded Gaza, ethnically cleansing all Jews and in 1948, Jordan invaded Judea, Samaria and east Jerusalem, ethnically cleansing all Jews. Muslim Jordan destroyed 58 synagogues in Jerusalem. Arabs first started calling themselves "Palestinians" in 1967. Arafat was the first leader of this new people. Before 1948, Jews were known as the Palestinians. The Jewish newspaper, the Jerusalem Post was called the Palestine Post. The Jewish-founded electric company was Palestine Electric. The Palestinian Symphony Orchestra was all Jewish. During World War II, the British army had a Palestinian Brigade made up entirely of Jewish volunteers.
