2. Jerusalem o Jreusalem
Psalms 83 ,   Selah   (06.22.08)
Jo'el 3:2
3. You should excuse him,because Sarkozy doesn't know
that Jerusalem belongs to jews !! loool
4. building in jerusalem
colin   (06.23.08)
Has peres already poisoned the mind of the new french president.Does sekosky know what is a settlement. ? The french can keep thier noises out of Israeli building. Sekosky can go and give his building arguements to the french NOT HERE IN ISRAEL Jerusalem will continue to grow and be prosperous with building the whole of JERUSALEM
5. There's ABSOLUTELY NO ROOM for the Arabs to make a state
Miriam ,   Israel   (06.22.08)
“side by side” with tiny Israel. Mr. Sarkozy, the country of France is much larger than Israel. How about having the Arabs live "side by side" with you? This will surely be the best way for you to "help" Israel. We do not need any other help from you momentarily, since all you came for is the destruction of OUR land. The land that belongs to Jews and to Jews only. If you don’t like it, please go back home. With friends like you, who needs enemies?
6. Sarkozy is wrong.
Giuseppe ,   Italy   (06.22.08)
monsieur Sarkozy non ci siamo proprio. I disagree completely with Sarkozy. He says is a great friend of Israel, I doubt about it. Nobody can criticize were a SOVEREIGN state wants to build houses in HIS CAPITAL Jerusalem. Nobody can, no Sarkozy, no Bush. PERIOD.
7. Oh, those diasporas!
observer   (06.22.08)
8. Sarkozy!, look over your shoulder
observer   (06.22.08)
that tree was planted by Arab.
9. #3 Actually, jews are the only people who claim that
Jerusalem belong to them but Sarkozy and the rest of the world just won't buy that crap !
10. Bad Decision to Build at This Time and In This Place
lynne ,   USA   (06.23.08)
I agree with French President, Sarkozy: The building sends a bad message to the world. The building should NOT go forward for the good of all. It's fine for President Sarkozy to disagree on some points. He is not a "Yes Man" to agree with everything but a friend willing to share the truth of his convictions and beliefs and as such is a true friend, a valuable friend to Israel.
11. none of u is good enough for debates nor politics
Omar ,   UK   (06.23.08)
this has always been the problem, u get to see many replies on any article but never supported.... Just bla bla blaaaaaaaa. What do u expect? how far will things go? every empire has get a day where it ends unless it plays right!!! troy's walls were so high but still intruders went in. So, my words are to those who write all this rubbish comments is just try to think for once in ur life b4 saying or writting ur precious comment. A Palestinian state will be there if not today then tomorrow will do, the goulan will be given back to syria and shiba'a farms will be given back to lebanon..... Every dog has its DAY!!!!
12. Jerusalem? Sarkozy wore out his welcome.
Steve ,   Fla.   (06.23.08)
Go home Mr. Sarkozy. Take care of your anti-Semitism at home.
14. what a naivety..
Alex ,   UK   (06.23.08)
They just need something to play even-handness, so they all - Rice, Bush, Merkel, Sarkozy, - "criticize" Israel for settlements. That is mostly to preserve face (an maybe more than face, skin) of Arab moderates, showing that they don't trade "reasistance" aka terrorism for nothing.
15. All these messages for Assad! Mais Pourquoi?
Enzo ,   london,uk   (06.23.08)
A French company will build two big cement factories in Syria worth $1.2 billion. Another French firm is working on engineering designs for the Damascus metro, and the Toulouse-based Airbus Industries hopes to win a big contract to re-equip Syria's national airline! Well... I love you too, Assad!!!
16. I told you so, Sarko is a Pyscho
NT Atilla ,   Tel Aviv   (06.23.08)
17. Sarko is an idiot
Frank ,   Canada   (06.23.08)
Palestinian and democratic or French and courage are oxymorons. A Palestinian state will not guarantee anything to Israel apart from more terror and more war.
18. Well for sure I'm done eating French fries, & I will not buy
French wine either!! ,   Rueben, Israel   (06.23.08)
19. Carla has bedroom eyes and Sarkozy has jealous eyes.
Rivkah   (06.23.08)
Carla has looked bored and in need of a hug from Nicholas since getting off the plane. I think I like Carla better in black and grey or dark blue. That makes her look penitent for her bedroom eyes, like a school girl in a religious uniform trying to please the nuns.
20. "you have made bad decisions"???
jason ,   jerusalem   (06.23.08)
sarkozy has turned his warm relations with israel very cold. at a time when a young jew in paris is beaten to a coma by anti-semitic thugs, he is preaching to israel. this is outrageous. can we imagine an israeli leader coming to paris to tell them about their bad decisions? no, we have more dignity than the french.
21. Jerusalem is Jewish. Period. Not your business, Frenchies
Avraham ,   NYC   (06.23.08)
22. The Jerwish people has rights...and sentiments!
Robert Bernier ,   Tel Aviv   (06.23.08)
The Land of Israel belongs exclusively to the people of Israel. The Jews have the right to build and live freely in their country. Agreements as a result of blackmail and pressure are not valid and will not change historical truth and International Legitimacy (The San Remo agreements). Mistakes done by Israeli government(s) in Anapolis or before should not be respected and should be put right immediately. At the base, the Land of Israel is exclusively the land of the Jews in its entirety as explained at :
23. Jerusalem, the Eternal Capital of Israel
ari ,   scottsdale USA   (06.23.08)
Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel for 3000 years and will continue to be so. Don't be fooled by Islamic rhetoric. Washington is America, Paris, France, London, England and Jerusalem, Israel. It's really that simple.
24. Sarkozy and Settlement construction
I.Kemp ,   Nahariya Israel   (06.23.08)
Another "true" friend of Israel
25. common sense
Michael ,   Haifa   (06.23.08)
All he is trying to say is that the "geniuses" who think they are running this country are capable of making mistakes.
26. Take your Globalist Agenda back to your . . .
Ken Quinn ,   Amsterdam   (06.23.08)
ROMAN catholic homeland Mr. Sarkozy. Zion belongs to the faithful! ALL of it.
27. Sarkozy is not a friend of Israel
Zion   (06.23.08)
28. Nice one, Carla
Chamalau, Tova ,   London, UK   (06.23.08)
Tu es vraiment magnifique!
29. all the room for a pali state in in Jordan !
trumpeldor ,   eurabia   (06.23.08)
30. # 5 Miriam - Arabs will live side by side with Israel
Simon ,   TA the free city   (06.23.08)
Just goes to show how far detached from reality you really are. The Palestinians are not going to disappear over night, there will be a Palestinian state side by side with Israel and East Jerusalem will be the future capital of any Palestinian state.
