1. Barak again in circle bla, blah
AlbertoGA ,   St. George, USA   (02.04.09)
This Guy is not able to take care of a few Terrorist in Gaza. Now he is talking about Iran. Please let me rest and recover...Ayayay !
2. Sadly Barak Obama wants to remove all sanctions
zionist forever   (02.04.09)
Instead he is going to invite the monkey from Persia to the White House for unconditional talks. I predict that before the first year of the Obama presidincy is over all sanctions will have been removed by both the US and Europe and the preasure will be on Israel to make concessions in the name of diplomacy with Iran.
3. soon the world will come crying to us
vashDi ,   israel   (02.04.09)
G-d bless Israel, i fear only G-d. let there be world war 3, but just know that it could have been avoided if only you'd have listened to israel which knows iran better than most. so goodluck western world, i salute you with my middle finger.
4. Iran & Israel
Mohammad ,   Jordan   (02.04.09)
I am wondering if Israel is so concerned about the world peace, when doesn't she take initiative and abandons its nuclear arsenal?! Israel can expose and embarress Iran if she cooperates with the UN nuclear watchdog. I consider ALL nuclear weapons as a threat to world peace without exceptions. I also hate the Israeli hypocrisy.
5. im sure obama sent his heart felt congrats

6. To #4 Mohammad Jordon: If Iran nukes Israel .....
David ,   Karmiel, Israel   (02.04.09)
Jordan will also be a "glowing green"! You know as we all do that Israel will not use nuclear weapons unless we are attacked first and that first attack would hit Jordan as well! The fact is that Israel cannot rely on the UN. Everyone condemns Israel but who has condemned Sri Lanka for killing 70,000 Tamilies and bombing a hospital 9 times in 4 days? Who has condemned the USA and the UK for causing the deaths of over 90,000 civilians in Iraq since 2003 in a war where neither countries have been attacked? What has the UN Security Council done about Darfur, Zimbabwe and the massacres in Africa? Is Israel to blame for these too? Its very easy and very popular to blame Israel and the Jews for everything but we are the only people and Israel is the only country being threatened with annihilation by Islamic Fundamentalism, Syria and Iran. Just like any other country, including Jordan, Israel has an obligation to protect its people from harm and I am sure that if threatened King Abdullah would take the same steps that his father took when Jordan was threatened by terrorism! That was called "Black September" in 1970 when he expelled the PLO form Jordan! (Wikipedia).
7. #4 A Simple Response
Bill Foonman ,   Jacksonville, USA   (02.04.09)
Because there are no democracies in the Muslim world and Islam is not a religion of peace. The proof is in the Qur'an. When faced with the violence espoused in that document and the Islamic terrorism inspired by its teachings and blindly followed by its sycophants, Israel has every right to keep nuclear weapons to protect itself against the masses who daily call for its destruction.

zionist forever   (02.04.09)
Mohammed How about this one maybe if Israel give up all its tanks & F16s then Hamas will throw stones instead of fire rockets. Any possible future palestinian state will be a demiliterised one. Just a lightly armed security force and coast gaurd. No tanks No jets No attack hellicopters No submarines No warships No missiles Jordan, Israel and every other state in the region will keep their modern weapons. Looks like the arabs would all by the hypocrites when it comes to any future palestinian state. It will also be a walled in state on all sides.
9. bit rich
matt ,   London UK   (02.04.09)
Its a bit rich to hear any Israeli govt minister talking about UN resolutions. When Israel starts to comply with them then it can expect others to do so too.
10. Is Like Telling
Zohan ,   Tel Aviv   (02.04.09)
the Sicilian police to disarm and the Mafia will thrown down their weapons
11. Why should Europeans fear Iran
European   (02.05.09)
when we have an Israel with nuclear weapons, with leaders, the people voted in, but don't even trust themselvies. I mean give me a break. And we should fear Iran? I think it time Israeli's looked in the mirror. You are responsible for your situation, We are tired of it, and your whining. Oh , Right I'm antisemitic but I do love the people who live on any land, who don't fight. Yes, I love Arabs and I even love you. But I tire quickly listening to you," trying to justify your actions", we have eyes . You say your civilized, then act civilized. You want a Jewish state, have one, but don't steal, and give back what's not yours. Help the Palistinians set up their state, instead of fighting it(Their your neighbour, be a good example). And we Europeans will be proud of y/our Jewish State. ---Could you do that? "You see its 2009 now and if we don't start concentrating on Climate change, it not going to matter what we think! We will be watching our children, all our children suffering and we will only have ourselves to blame. Do you care then do your share, its not going to be easy, look at your children in the eye, and do it for them." Vote for someone who can unite Arabs and Jews, give it a try, I bet you would get back Gilad and if things don't work out, you can always go back to killing, if that's what you want.
