1. Let me make something clear
Palestinian   (04.04.08)
I do not know where this guy got his education from, but I grew, born, raised, in Jerusalem and never we were taught to hate JOOS!!! We were inflamed by occupation, and occupation only... If our occupier is a Muslim country, we would hate that country and not all Muslims...! Simple... Got it??
2. Visa to visit
Simon ,   London   (04.04.08)
Why is the government of Israel so stupid that it won't give this man a visa to visit? When are you going to learn that your PR is rubbish and that the reason that people in the UK believe that the goverment is on a par with that meglamaniac in Iran is because you habarah is so lacking.
3. Walid don't come!
Susan ,   Kfar Saba   (04.04.08)
He shouldn't come here. It might be dangerous. They could send a hit man after him and his family.
4. a real SCOOP Y-net ! is he the only one?

5. #1 The truth hurts huh? I've hearsd
Nagi   (04.04.08)
6. @1 education and occupation
jerusalem =/= bethlehem or any other city on the westbank and concerning occupation. you say you would oppose any occupation. also if that's by muslims. did you? Did you people call for a palestinian state under jordan rule? under british rule? under ottoman rule? so far i can only recall you're talking about occupation now jews are eventually having some control in their homeland
7. Walid Shoebat tells us…
Dora Ziv ,   Haifa   (04.04.08)
Palestinians are the newest of all the peoples on the face of the Earth, and began to exist in a single day by a kind of supernatural phenomenon that is unique in the whole history of mankind, as it is witnessed by Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist that acknowledged the lie he was fighting for and the truth he was fighting against: “Why is it that on June 4th 1967 I was a Jordanian and overnight I became a Palestinian?” “We did not particularly mind Jordanian rule. The teaching of the destruction of Israel was a definite part of the curriculum, but we considered ourselves Jordanian until the Jews returned to Jerusalem. Then all of the sudden we were Palestinians – they removed the star from the Jordanian flag and all at once we had a Palestinian flag”. When I finally realized the lies and myths I was taught, it is my duty as a righteous person to speak out”. This declaration by a true “Palestinian” should have some significance for a sincerely neutral observer. Indeed, there is no such a thing like a Palestinian people, or a Palestinian culture, or a Palestinian language, or a Palestinian history. There has never been any Palestinian state, neither any Palestinian archaeological find nor coinage. The present-day “Palestinians” are an Arab people, with Arab culture, Arabic language and Arab history as explained in details at :

to become Sons of GOD.
9. Universities
Alex ,   LA, USA   (04.04.08)
Some universities, in US, refused to alow him to speak because they afraid Muslem students will begin killing professors and other students after he speaks.
10. #1, thats TOTALLY false. You dont do anything about Jordan
David ,   Boston, USA   (04.04.08)
Thats about as much BS as I can take. Arabs have been killing Jews for centuries, and it has NOTHING to do with the re-creation of Israel. 1929 Hebron Massacre is probably the best known. From 1948-1967 there wasnt a single attempt to create another Arab Palestinian state, because the land was controlled by Arabs. Jordan is about 80% of "historic" Palestine, and the Hashemites are the minority there...but its Arab, not Jewish. History doesnt lie. People do. Its not about Israel or this so called Occupation.
11. That's an up for Israel's PR war
Ehud Olmert   (04.04.08)
A foolish and pathetic traitor. If I was his father I would most certainly turn in my grave.
12. Let him in!
3JAy3 ,   Israel   (04.04.08)
Its ridiculous that the Israeli government wont let this man back into Israel , especially after all the great PR work he has done supporting Israels cause. Thats the problem with this one that tells the world the truth about the Palastinians. Livni as a spokeswoman is pathetic and Israels needs all the voices it can get, but of course that goes against dictator Olmerts aim of propping up the bogus Palastinians!
13. Reply to #1
Charles Allen ,   Charlotte, NC USA   (04.04.08)
Here in the west we have a saying that I would like to pass on to you."Don't Piss On My Back and Call It Rain"
14. To number 7... WRONG!
Observer   (04.04.08)
Palestinians are descendents of the Semitic people who have inhabited Palestine from the ancient times... Let it be, Nabatean, Canaanite, Hebrews, etc... The semitic people in their majority were not Jewish. Palestine had Idumites, Nabateans, Canaanite Phonecians, etc.... All these are ancestors of modern Palestinians... Many Palestinians do have also Israelite ancestory like Samaritans in Nablus, and others who became Christians or Muslims... Palestinians are called so because they are the natives of Palestine... Yes there are many unifying factors that can bring them under a larger umbrella, like the Arabic Language, etc... But the same could be said 2000 years back when Aramaic was the main stream language.
15. #1, E. Jerusalem was occupied by Jordan 1948-67
Jake   (04.04.08)
"We were inflamed by occupation, and occupation only... If our occupier is a Muslim country, we would hate that country and not all Muslims" Two questions: 1. Did you "resist occupation by a Muslim country" when East Jerusalem was occupied by Jordan from 1948 to 1967? 2. Why does the original PLO charter of 1964, which was ratified in Jordanian-ruled E. Jerusalem, explicitly NOT lay claim to the right to liberate the Jordanian-ruled West Bank and the Egyptian-ruled Gaza strip, but ONLY those lands "under Zionist occupation"?
Nagi   (04.04.08)
Not enough moderate Muslims speak up and defend Islam in Gaza and Judea & Samaria. What he speaks of makes a lot of sense to me. The way songs he learned as a kid just naturally come from his mouth, songs of hate I might add. Speak up in Gaza and prove us all wrong.
17. What can I say?
Libneniyyeh ,   Beirut/Canada   (04.04.08)
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Is this the best you can come up with? Wow, what a PR stunt - too bad you picked a man who only comes across as an a-- kisser, someone without any moral standards, without any regard for his religion, his people, and his family. Let's see, in the few quotes you presented you depicted a man who sold his people and their cause, his uncle, his god...scratch a little beneath the surface and you'll find he sold his own mother. And he converter to Christianity after reading the Bible. How quaint. I'm utterly touched. Pah! Where are the standards of journalism?
18. #9 Muslim Students Killing Professors
Ibrahim ,   Washington, DC   (04.04.08)
Man, you make me laugh to my stomach, I hope that you still believe that you live on earth not other planet!
19. # 17 Met this Guy
Ibrahim ,   Washington DC   (04.04.08)
He was invited by Christian Fanatics in university in DC couple of years ago, you can't believe how this guy behaves, all Jewish students were skeptical about who this guy how can he deceive and lie in order to get the dumps use their credit card to pay him, he has a lot of imaginations on how to create stories about teaching to hate Jews, only Stupid evangelical not educated fell with his speech, because they believe that Jews should convert or be killed , not smart Jews who knows his lies, he was abused by his father and then fled with his American mother to the American Embassy in Jerusalem and then he couldn’t find anything to survive except these lies.
20. To #1
Vasiliy ,   Baltimore, USA   (04.04.08)
Ok, you are only brainwashed about the occupation. If there was no Israel there would be somebody else to hate. How about living without it? Have you tried Love?
21. Palestinian
Alex   (04.04.08)
apparently you were just fine, being "occupied" by Turkey,Jordan and Egypt
22. Kol HaKavod to him!
Sam ,   ny   (04.04.08)
But we've seen the videos and television programming. But now this is just another source. Kol HaKavod for telling us this, though
23. It's his Christian half that accepts Israel...
Jack ,   San Diego,   (04.04.08) wonders about his Moslem half. The two halves must be in constant conflict.
24. Re: Walid Shoebat Tells Us... (#7)
Andreia ,   Bklyn USA   (04.04.08)
Re: Walid Shoebat Tells Us... (#7) AND, Mr. Shoebat stands correct! Roman Empire Hadrian renamed Philistia to Assyria Palaestina some time near 125 AD and, as well, his son Titus destroyed Jerusalem (ancient properties of the Hebrew peoples). Going forward, the carving of Palestine generated by man (the "Brits and USA"), which after the carving encompassed peoples from Jordan, Israel, Syria, Iraq, and Lebanon in 1947 and 20 years after the Turk-Ottoman Empire released the possession of the isolated and desolated Jerusalem -- hence leaving it the same way they found it, and being that today we are continuously finding Hebrew elements in the same area belonging to the Hebrew folks...guess what...they are the Jewish peoples. They are rightfully correct to keep the land of Israel (all in tact). With all of this fighting over Jerusalem (left desolated by the Turk-Ottoman Empire who are members of Islam) only shows me how incredible the Islam's accounts are. History shows that Jews have rights to Jerusalem and all of Israel. No Quran (Koran) supports the Holy Land Jerusalem. Only the Torah, Tanakh and Bible Scriptures. Shalom.
25. Blessing to Hero
Michael ,   Israel   (04.04.08)
Dear Walid Shoebat, you are brave and honest man! May God Almighty - God of Israel protect you and bless you and your home abundently! May God Almighty set free more muslims and arabs from slavery of radical islam!

28. Jews
Yussif ,   Canada   (04.04.08)
I grew up in Gaza and I was never taught to hate the Jews. When Palestinians say jews they actually mean Israelis.. it's just like you call us Arabs- like we're from Saudi Arabia :D
29. My friend #1
Libneniyyeh ,   Beirut/Lebanon   (04.04.08)
Don't try to make them see. They are as blind fanatics as those we have on our side. Funny how they call on moderates to speak but you get so few moderates on their side. Be Palestinian and be proud. Salam
30. #17 - Libeniyyeh
Marc Saurel ,   Montreal, anada   (04.04.08)
You are entitled to your partial opinion, but the fact is that this man has couragously embraced the truth and despite threats to his life he has embarked on a journey to divulge the ugly side of extremist Islam and educate the West. I can only have respect and praise for him.
