1. Ban Ki Moons "statement" is not helpful
jack bauer   (12.07.07)
he has no right whatsoever to tell any Israelite where he can or cant build in all the land of Israel he should try going and telling Kim Jong Il where he can and cant build his next palace....or better vet his next concentration camp it seems that eating to much kim chi fries the brain cells
2. Was he optimistic ??
He doesn't know well the Israelians .... they talk about peace and they react in another area with what can spoil this peace talk ... it's old dirty Israeli game all know it or at least the Arabs knows well . Israel can forget normalisation with Arabs untill they change .
3. Genocide in Darfur "Not Helpful"
Terry ,   Eilat, Israel   (12.07.07)
Islamic terrorism is unhelpful. Kassam rockets are not helpful. Iran's nuclear program is not helpful. China's occupation of Tibet is not helpful. Saudi financing of terrorism is not helpful. Should I go on? Off-hand, I'd say there are quite a few "unhelpful" things to focus your attention on. Actually, the UN is pretty "unhelpful" -
4. One home per Kassam
Eliyahu   (12.07.07)
Let's make a deal. For every kassam, Israel is permitted to build one new house. For every terror attack, one new neighborhood. For every Jew killed, one new city. One of the many basic problems with the lie-fully named "peace" process is that there has never been any accountability. Now that it has become unilateral, even more so.
5. South Korea Building In Seoul Is Also not Helpful
Yishai Kohen ,   YeShA, Israel   (12.07.07)
Ban Ki Moon should tell his own government that it will only upset the North Koreans. We can't have that now, can we?
6. 1948 Rejection of Jewish State not helpful
Stan ,   JHB RSA   (12.07.07)
Expulsion of Jews from all neighbouring arab countries is not helpful. Continued arab attacks against Jews including all wars and intifadas and attempted suicide bombings is not helpful. I suppose continued quassam attacks are ? What about the total withdrawl of Israel from Gaza - this is not worth mentioning by the UN as helpful.
7. And the UN is both useless and counterproductive.
Uzziel   (12.07.07)
When they are not being pawns of the dictatorships siiting in the General Assembly its soldiers are raping locals in their "Peace misssions".
8. There is no expansion; only recovery
Paqid 16 Yirmeyahu ,   Ra'anana, Israel   (12.07.07)
9. Advice Ban Ki Moon
Brod ,   USA   (12.07.07)
Why allow yourself to be pressured by the Islamist-Jihadists to do their dirty work of advancing their dark agenda against Israel? You should be focussing on dealing and solving other more critical problems in the world such as: the unrelenting attacks on Thais by Islamist-Jihadist terrorists in Southern Thailand; the unrelenting attacks on Filipinos by Islamist-Jihadist terrorists in Southern Philippines; the Holocaust of Africans in Darfur by the Sudanese fanatical Islamist-Jihadist regime; the conflicts in the Congo; the unrelenting attacks on Merchant and Cruise Ships by Somali Islamist-Jihadist terrorists on the Coastal Waters of Eastern Africa, etc. It is time the UN stops being a pawn of Islamist-Jihadists in the Middle East conflict.
10. Keep building, screw the U.N. & America!
Avraham ,   Netivot   (12.07.07)
11. BottomLine:: Ban Ki Moon balanced, Kofi Islamized approch!!
KMR ,   Middle East   (12.07.07)

I am wondering if in Israel the right to issue building permits belongs to the municipal authorities like lets say, is the norm of the entire world, or is there any other country that has building codes zoning laws where the federal or the countries government officials are also empowered to issue the Building and Zoning permits, or is it International Law that the rights to build in Israel belongs to the UN, Quartet, EU, UAR, Saudi Arabia and a conglomeration of other Moslem countries and without such permits from each and every such country Israel is forbidden by International Law to build and provide shelter to their citizens. This farce has been going on way to long and the reason is a misconception by current and past Israeli Leaders that there exists even a sliver of hope that, trying to be nice and acquiescing to even the most simplest of requests let alone Demands emanating from any Islamic governed country or their sponsored terrorists. Give an Arab a finger and he becomes so delusional that he thinks he has asserted his dominance of the Weak and Helpless Jew. PM Olmart claimed that Israel is Sovereign, let him put such in practice against the entire world not only against Israelis most ardent supporters
14.  the Occupiers
augustine e johnson ,   birmingham, alabama   (12.07.07)
there certainly is nothing wrong with jews occupying G-ds land - even building another temple --- that is the simpliest reading and probably correct understanding of the bible ========= shalom======== augustine e johnson-usa
15. Actually, Andrew
jackie ,   Florida, USA   (12.07.07)
Since it's been more like 4,000 rockets, it should be 4,000 more homes for Israelis. Maybe that would be equitable, although it still would not actually help the people in Sderot.
16. Who cares what they are saying?????
Arthur ,   SF, CA   (12.07.07)
They will say it anyhow... It's OUR LAND, it's OUR CAPITAL... And not to forget to remove hostile arab population from the country - the sooner, the better..
17. Kassam Rockets not helpful, no UN mention
Petra ,   usa   (12.07.07)
Of all the global human rights abuses, only Israel is singled out for disapproval.??? The UN should move anywhere but America. They have become a travesty of justice. The recent gang rape of a Saudi woman and HER punishment, has the UN mentioned that? Darfur? The Sudan, etc.?
18. Ban Ki Crescent Moon
Gideon Reader ,   USA   (12.07.07)
Expostulations from the Kimche Swiller in Chief. Just being in the position he holds is enough to compromise his judgement and wisdom. Anyone anywhere, ever hear anything in favor of the Jewish State? Or Jews? Come to think of it, maybe Olmert can be persuaded to take up digs at Turtle Bay, and leave poor Israel alone to celebrate Shabat once, with Shimon the JINO (Jew in name only).
19. Keep on developing Israel!
Zion   (12.07.07)
300 new houses is called progressing, 300 new weapons for Arab kids is called regressing
20. Jews Dont Need Approval from outsiders...
Ben Schlomo ,   singapore   (12.07.07)
to Build Homes on their own Land ! Annapolis is immoral and dosent protect the Position of the Jews. Reality Check. There is no need to listen to Condoleezza or Ban Ki Moon.ENOUGH is Enough. Time for Zionist to take over !
21.  PLO Hamas Shooting Rockets at Israel every day not Helpful
Roy c. Hudson ,   Pittsburg USA   (12.07.07)
the UN has never been Helpful from day one. They never see the Enemy of Israel for looking at Israel fighting for it's own God given nation God is looking down the destruction of the UN according to Zechariah:12-1-9, God said; I will seek away to destron ALL NATIONS "UN"!! that fight against Jerusalem MY City, My Nation Israel, Hey Read up on that one & say the PLO will get Land of Israel. it will be short lived if they do ! The line has already been crossed by all nations Fools have rushed in. God will take them OUT soon. RCH USA 12/7/07
22. UN chief: Israel's settlement expansion
Gemelka ,   Orlando, USA   (12.07.07)
G-D left in writing how to solve the Israel Palestinian problem: Ezekiel 47:21-23 "Thus you shall divide this land among yourselves according to the tribes of Israel. It shall be that you will divide it by lot as an inheritance for yourselves, and for the strangers who dwell among you and who bear children among you. They shall be to you as native-born among the children of Israel; they shall have an inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel. And it shall be that in whatever tribe the stranger dwells, there you shall give him his inheritance," says the Lord God.
23. #1 Jack, good luck in jail, 42 weeks ouch!!
24. Ban ... Ki-moon, even half-moon is not helpful,
Abel Shoni ,   France   (12.07.07)
