1. Shas will follow the money as usual
Simon ,   TA Israel   (05.25.08)
Shas the party with the morals of an alley cat on heat, will go where ever the money is , which is their true agenda. Does anyone actually believe Mr Yisha , Ovadia Yosefs puppet really cares?
2. Shas - the party of hypocrites
Millie ,   Israel   (05.25.08)
I read this and laughed. These opportunistic jerks will sell out for anything. First they said that they would leave the gov't if Jerusalem was "on the table" in talks with the PA. They mumbled some weak excuse and stayed put while Olmert greased their palms with land for Haredi housing. Now they burble about "fighting to keep the Golan". Don't worry, Shas isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Olmert will find it easy to bribe these idiots again - and again. Hypocrites!
3. Oh ya $ha$ to save the day!! They are despicable
Zippy   (05.25.08)
4. Mofaz and Yishai all talk!
Mike ,   Jerusalem   (05.25.08)
They talk big now but weren't they members of the Gvt. that expelled Jews from Gush Katif and handed it over to the terrorists who demolished the green houses and turned the area into a terrorist base? Isn't Shas led by Yishai the party that was thrown a crumb of less than 300 housing units in Beitar Illit and still stays in the gvt. despite teh fact that the Palis, and Livni openly say that Jerusalem is on the chopping block?
5. Wrong spelling -- Sheisse not Shas
Steven ,   San Francisco   (05.25.08)
Somehow their party's name is constantly misspelled. It's the Sheisse Party, not the Shas Party.
6. Shas takes care of the people that vote for them!
redmiike ,   Tel Aviv, London, LA   (05.25.08)
I didn't and won't vote for Shas but it works to give it voters what they voted for and more so than any other party. Shas will not allow the division of Jerusalem or the giving away of the Golan, neither of which would pass the Knesset anyway. I voted for Lieberman and his party pulled out of the coalition. Did the party that you voted for leave the coalition? If not then never vote for it again! Mike
7. Israel will cede Golan to Syria only after
observer   (05.25.08)
Syria cedes Sheba farms to Lebanon!
8. Shas has lost all credibility! Too many lies!
Jay3 ,   Israel   (05.25.08)
9. Oh Yeah. I trust you. Beder.
Gideon Reader   (05.25.08)
Where I come from an individual who says "I got your back", is trusted by his prior performance and reputation for integrity. His credibility is based on his word; his personal level of trustworthiness. The leadership of Shas, has not exactly been a beacon of light in the area of integrity. I do not believe that I would trust my "back" to Yishai OR Mofaz. No. There will not be a sane person who would trust either of these polititurds NOT to look to their opwn personal fortunes, both economic and political befopre that of the Israeli nation.
10. big talk that means nothing from either one of them
zionist forever   (05.26.08)
Mofaz is looking to chalange Livni to take the Kadima top spot and he knows the majority of the puiblic are againstlselling the Golan to Assad to keep Olmert out of jail and satisfy his political ego by being the man who got Assads signature on paper making an empty promise of peace. Mofaz just wants to sound like his own man and at this stage chalanging Olmert publicly can only help your career no need to worry about where will you be when he makes any changes to the cabinet because he wont be around long enough. Shas does anybody believe a word they say anymore, they are natural Olmert allies they will support the highest bidder. This party thats supposed to stand for judiaism is willing to let Olmert sell Jerusalem for the right price so the Golan has even less importance to them. They are all full of bullshit
11. golan
colin   (05.26.08)
Shas has something to say of the golan..First ask how much does it cost the country?? Shas wants but will only take.No health .no work,but give me give me--Mofaz talks a lot and never has he done anything for Israel.
12. $$has again looking for donations
Arie ,   BaGolan   (05.26.08)
13. Yishai: Blah blah Blah & pass s'more of that tasty pork
Dr. Dave ,   USA   (05.26.08)
14. "Handing the Golan over to Syria *at this time*..."
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, DC USA   (05.26.08)
Mofaz, like Halutz, is demonstrating that the appeasement ideology of the left has infected even ex-IDF leaders. So, it's not OK to cede the land today, but maybe in a few years? Why should we invest in, populate, or protect the Golan when it will be ceded to an enemy state in only "25-30 years"? Israel owes Syria nothing. Let Syria come and sue for peace. Turkey stood their ground and Syria abandoned claims on Hatay. Israel should take a lesson. And Shas? They're bought and paid for. No one should count on them for anything.
15. The nuclear option
David ,   Houston   (05.26.08)
After a withdrawal from the Golan, Israel would no longer have a strategic buffer. Any attack by Syria, Be it by Assad or by his successors, would require an immediate nuclear response. These phony "peace" talks will only lead to future war that will leave massive destruction as the only effective defense.
16. Golan Yishai Shas
Brook ,   US   (05.26.08)
"Shas would stand beside them in order to prevent any attempt to evacuate them from the Golan."; and Mofaz will not hand over Golan, NOW. They both do not say they will vote against giving Golan to Syria later. They gave no promise about that at all. In fact they hedged on that big issue.
17. You gotta love Albert...
Spinner ,   World   (05.26.08)
Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
18. Why not bring down government altogether?
Jack ,   San Diego, USA   (05.26.08)
19. The real "Axis of Evil"
Terry ,   Eilat, Israel   (05.26.08)
Kadima, Labour, & Shas.
20. Give away is trash talk from corrupt olmert.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Santa Monica,CA USA   (05.26.08)
21. When Netananyhu waffles, don't expect anything from Shas
Ilan ,   Ariel   (05.26.08)
Lieberman sat in this government, and Netanyahu went along with Sharon to destroy not just Gush Katif but also the families and communities of Israelis who lived there. Shas' principles don't place much importance on the livelihood of people outside their circle of voters. To change Shas, appeal to their public.
22. Yishai and golan withdrawal
I.Kemp ,   Nahariya   (05.26.08)
If he does I bet he does it from the comfort of still being in the Govt
