1. The reporting is worse than here.
Terry ,   Eilat, Israel   (02.08.09)
I read a lot of foreign newspapers every day & the reporting on Lieberman is so distorted, biased, & superficial it's pathetic. The lack of professionalism among journalists amazes me. Lieberman is portrayed as a far, far right extremist & racist, dangerous, radical, undemocratic, etc. etc. etc. There is no serious discussion of his actual policies & ideas, no serious examination of the issues, & no historical context. Lieberman has replaced Netanyahu as the target of anti-Israel journalists. The British sources are the worst I've read, exception made for Arab sources.
2. to the norwegians: israelis also want to know how their
reality will change after the elections. we'll keep you posted. as for the money invested in gaza, your reporters should have dug deeper into "innocent civilian" lives, maybe reports about home made bombs, and arsenal in basements would have served the norwegian public better. since the gaza "resistance" is still popular, and they are convinced terror has won them the war, norwegian best form of help should be hospital equipment supplies, that won't be made into bombs.
3. Norwegian reporter
Geir ,   Norway   (02.08.09)
Sissel Wold is a Middle East correspondent from the state broadcaster NRK ( She can manage in both Hebrew and Arabic. NRK is in general very anti-Israel, but Sissel is reasonably neutral, at least in the beginning of her assignment to the Middle East. Sadly, her latest reports have been more hostile to Israel, perhaps after pressure from her superiors. Please support the best pro-Israel organization in Norway
4. Lieberman=Haider=Le Pen
Avi ,   Israel   (02.08.09)
No Lieberman voter should ever open his/her mouth to criticize any neo-fascist leader in the world! Lieberman is made of the same wood with Haider, Le Pen and Co. His voters would most probably be Hamas voers if they were born on the "other" side.
5. Norwegians rank among the most antisemitic of all
Semsem ,   New York, USA   (02.08.09)
Among the Eurabians, the Norwegians Quislings have always ranked among the most antisemitic in Eurabia; even before the establishment of the Jewish State. I don't trust any of them.
6. The world wants a Just solution to the Arab-Israeli situatio
Jae ,   Lynn USA   (02.08.09)
situation and it deserves one. The arabs who dont want loyalty to the one and only eternal Land of the children of israel, can be financially and fully compensated and move to wherever they please- there are 25 arab nations, 57 Muslim nations and a host of other countries that are user friendly. The solution is fairness and Jordan is Palestine. Literally. Look at the maps before israel and Jordan was founded. What will you see? the 9 letter word: palestine. For those history buffs out there palestine is the name the Roman Empire used in its strategy to erase all jewish memory from israel 1,800 years ago. It renamed Jerusalem Aritola capitolina, and commited genocide against the Jews, ethnic cleansing against the jews and population transfer against the Jews. That is why many Jews dont and wont recognize the word palestine for Israel. By the way palestine refers to the ancient Phillistines- a people originally from the islands of Greece and from which Goliath hailed in the famous david and (the giant) Goliath. Rome renamed it this as a further "Dig" against the jews attempting to erase the jewish memory. Yea, anti semitism is an ancient phenomenon.

9. Lieberman, do your thing, get rid of the palest. trash
US/Israel   (02.08.09)
10. Norweigens can't get enough of that A-rab Zubi
Erik the Dhimmi ,   Scandirabia   (02.08.09)
give em that old time religion, Islam its what the Scandinavians love. They accept it no need for it to rammed down their throat. Jumpin Allahney.
11. £8: It seems you care about both
Alex ,   Israel   (02.08.09)
After all, you bothered reading an Israely news site and adding a talkback about Lieberman.
12. @ 5, Semsem: Yes, but not all of us...
Nord ,   Bergen, Norway   (02.09.09)
Semsem, and others appalled by our recent violent demonstrations and idiotic remarks made by Norwegian officials: We're not all like that, you know. Generally the norwegian probably dislike islam and its supporters way more than israel... The problem is voicing your concern about the moslem community and/or islam usually yields a fatwa and threats, so it's mostly kept under the surface... Many of us support Israel's right to self defence, and although all of us would prefer no civilian casualties (in utopia), we're able to see the problem with terrorists hiding among civilians, and hope for more peaceful days. It's ironic the way our demonstrations for peace turn out violent, but that's not because of the pro-Israel part here in Norway... I guess they're just bored, living in the peaceful part of the world... it's weird...
