Enough of t his stupid talk.
2. Mr, Cotler tells the truth that most don't want to hear!
Nannette ,   London   (07.10.07)
3. #1 - Excatly what the Jews of Germany said in '38 . . .
The Souls of ,   Over 6 Million   (07.10.07)
4. Strength in numbers
Isabella ,   Israel   (07.10.07)
The Jews have become a stronger nation in the last 70 years. While it is tiring to keep dealing with threats from these mental cases, we must not underestimate ourselves, nor our country. The slippery road to hell is when we start to believe that it's possible for us to be part of the 'gathering storm'. It isn't 1938 we can take care of ourselves now.
5. Cotler doesn't understand previous threats, e.g.
Haifa   (07.10.07)
(a) 1948 (b) 1956 (c) 1967 (d) 1973 (e) 1981 (f) etc
6. Dennis Ross is giving Israel advice?!
sk ,   USA   (07.10.07)
Notice how this fool focuses on Hamas. You see, Hamasniks are "the bad terrorists," as opposed to Fatah, "the good terrorists." Jews should indeed learn that the problem is Islam, which cannot abide a Jewish state in what was territory seized by Arabs years ago.
7. Stop talking, start bombing! We know who our enemies are.
The Raccoon   (07.10.07)
8. The problem today is that Israel is led by an idiot
BigE ,   Israel   (07.10.07)
Olmert is completely delusional. I think that maybe the only way to save Israel from destruction is that this totally crippled and self-serving government be overthrown in a military coup. One can only hope that, as undemocratic as it sounds, the IDF gets so sick of this Olmert and Livni dog and pony show, that it rises in full force to defend the nation.
9. As a canadian Cotler was always a second rate
Al   (07.10.07)
blah blah artist. He is at best a snivelling hebe jeebie with a nebby attitude.
10. #4 ya'isabella: It isnt 1938 and no comparison
abdulla ,   germany   (07.10.07)
The middle-east is very different from europe and Jews (being strong as you imply) can be part of the "gathering storm". Jews and arabs and even muslims once formed confederate alliances in which they cooperated militarily and economically in the middle-east, .e.g. the Jews of yemen. Being strong AND being able to form alliances with your arab/muslim neighbors either as states or clans is essential. this is the middle-east in 2007 and not 1938 Germany - different game, different rules.
11. We won't wake up, that's the problem
Shiloh   (07.10.07)
It is much more then that. In prophecy we are only waiting for Gog to attack Persia. That's all. What is sad is that for thousands of years we have become numb to the facta thinking that nothing will ever happen. How quickly we forget the shoah, 48 etc. I have tried to tell Jews about the coming problems around peak oil, the american economy coming collapse etc. Very few will listen. They said the same before the shoah, nothing will happen, it's ok, where just like them now. Well, it happened and will again. Wake up Israel!
12. YOU KNOW IT'S SAD BUT TRUE....................
David P. ,   Santa Cruz, USA   (07.10.07)
and they have succeeded in recruiting a good portion of the world to help support their jihad against us, including members and leaders in my own community.
13. #5, You still refuse to see.
AK   (07.10.07)
This is the arrogant stupidity that allowed the Arabs to rewrite history without any challenge and stood mute while millions in the West were being turned against Israel by the Leftist propagandists in the media and academia. What we're seeing today didn't happen overnight, Arabs have been working on this since 1948, buying friends. Also thank Rabin, Peres &co for propping up Arab terrorists to justify their reckless stupidity of the Oslo deal. This conference should have been held a long time ago. Jerry Farwell, an Evangelical, quite a few years ago, publicly stated on television that the level of anti-Semitic rhetoric hasn’t been used since the Nazis. Everybody chose to ignore his words.
14. Transfer is the only way out
Adam ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (07.11.07)
15. #1 Start with yourself. Shut up.
16. Dennis the Menace
Dr. Leon ,   Tzfat, Israel   (07.11.07)
Puleeeeze.......He's dummer than I thought if he's trying to give us more 'eitzes' now !
17. Sounds like a bad case of paranoia.
Richard ,   New York, USA   (07.11.07)
Cotler needs to see a doctor right away. He must be doing some dirty stuff somewhere, because a guilty conscience needs no accuser.
18. Ross & Cotler
Birdi ,   Israel   (07.11.07)
Instead of criticizing we should be thanking these 2 men for their advise. We Jews will always be hated & so will Israel.
19. Tell it to Spanish Jews, 90% plans to leave according polls
Ignacio ,   Zaragoza, Spain   (07.17.07)
Nothing new under the sky, except that this time the Jews are partly guilty for electing such weak leaders, both in the Diaspora and in Israel. Olmert is no Leibler, and you need a Leibler.
