1. fill an empty seat
yechiel ,   london   (04.10.08)
in the '70's there was a call to leave an empty seat at the seder to remember the Jews behind the Iron Curtain. the lubavitcher Rebbe OBM said that the opposite is a better approach, fill each place at the seder, bring every Jew you know to the seder, so all Jews who are in a free world should use their freedom to practice their religion!
2. Just as well Palestinians don't celebrate Pesach

... or they'd need to leave about ten thousand places, one for every hero of the Resistance languishing in Israel's jails.

4. Empty chair
Reality Check ,   BaGolan   (04.10.08)
Thats all she, barak and olmert will do. The rest are empty promises! If we allow their time lines, our great-grandchildren will still be asking whatever happened to the soldiers.
5. I agree with her.
Ypip ,   Canada   (04.11.08)
And your an idiot.
6. Another Livni EMPTY GESTURE for situation she created
Dr. Dave ,   NYC   (04.11.08)
There's a river of Jewish blood that leads to her door. Follow the first drops of blood that lead all the way back to her endless politicking for father figure Sharon's Gaza Surrender. . Along the way revisit her cavortings with Rice that put Hamas in power.
7. I have a better idea
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (04.11.08)
Livni why don't you do your job so they come home? Why aren't you in front of the UNSC on a daily basis demanding the return of our people? At least two of them are required to be returned under UNSC 1701. Why aren't you doing your job? Embrass them, harass them, dog them until they finally do their job. Why don't you announce that until Hamas ceases their attacks and returns our hostage that nothing will go to Gaza. There are a thousand things you can be doing and aren't. Leaving an empty chair is only a gesture, do your job and we won't need gestures.
8. Livni's empty chair
Kyle ,   Southpark, CO, USA   (04.11.08)
I hope she means her chair in the Cabinet!
9. More Livni PR crap
EGW ,   vancouver canada   (04.11.08)
Livni's PR crap about empty chairs. What about empty heads? How is it that she didn't think of the empty chairs last year?? Her PR machine wasn't working properly then??
10. #1 Difference between caring and empty gestures
Ilan ,   Ariel   (04.11.08)
Filling a seat and inviting someone who would otherwise not have a proper seder is a pro-active, Jewish response. Livni's method is a PR gesture, devoid of consequence, serving nothing but her ego. That is the difference between greatness and wisdom and it's opposite as practiced by the present government of Israel.
11. Hilarious, open chair!!!!
BJV ,   JHB   (04.11.08)
That is quite comical, Livni deciding to leave a chair open for such a noble cause. I have a better idea, why does she not just leave Israel and allow somebody worthy of such a responsibilty take her chair.
