Yoel ,   רעננה   (02.09.09)
It's time to accept jews in arab areas. There should be no Judenrein in Israel !
2. He should be allowed to represent his party
Rami of Nazareth ,   Israel   (02.09.09)
Arabs in Um El Fahem should treat him as a any other person and show that even though he is bringign a message of hate, they are for coexistance and tolerance..
3. He's a sick SICK man
israel   (02.09.09)
and he should be locked up and not allowed to roam free. What's his reason for doing this? He is hateful and mentally sick - take away the Police and the IDF and the man is a complete and utter coward.
4. oh! so this is why MDA is on high alert & extra police r on
hand! loonies on ,   parade!   (02.09.09)
5. I take exception to the Central Elections Committee
rebecca ,   modiin   (02.09.09)
I take exception to the Central Elections Committee insinuating that this one man will provoke trouble. It's slander. Even if they do add the arab bit as an afterthought. And if he should be prevented from doing his civic duty he should be replaced, not by one who has prevented him, but by one from his own party. If there are irregularities in this town the CEC will cover them up.
6. this man is an oxygen thief

7. good for him!
oded   (02.09.09)
he should be able to go wheareever he wishes.. it is our country.. if the arabs don't like it they can move to gaza!
8. Finally in Israel 2009 a Jew can venture to an Arab village
Modern ,   Democracy   (02.09.09)
who could have thought?
9. If there was no news, he wouldn't be news
10. If Hadash can run in this election on a destroy Israel....
The Business   (02.09.09)
Platform, why can't this guy make sure voting is fair in a city which regularly has 140 year old people vote 2,3,4,5 and 6 times?
11. Israeli towns & Arab Villages
Lou ,   Ocean, USA   (02.10.09)
Staying away from politics, it still always bothered me that Arab Israeli citizens for the most part can feel safe going into Israeli towns and cities, however it I were to wonder into an Arab village, chances are, I would not be safe.... Something wrong with that picture....
12. Marzel is showing how hypocritical the left is.
Asaf Golan ,   Sugar Land   (02.09.09)
Good for him! If there is violence against him it is another blot on the Arabs of Israel. I understand why they are against him. I am also against Ahmed Tibi sitting in the Knesset. If they ignore him it would be the best thing
13. apartheid
Joseph ,   Israel   (02.09.09)
The Arab parties were allowed to send an observer to Ofrah. They refused even though the people of Ofrah were happy to have the observer. On the other hand, the Arabs of Um El Fahem are threatening to riot if a Jew visits their village. The National Union is right when it says that it is not the Right-wing that are apartheid racists, but rather some Arabs.
14. Israel is our homeland. Go to Umm el Fahm, Marzel!
Avraham ,   NYC   (02.10.09)
15. #11: Can a Israeli Arab "wonder" into a jewish settlement...
Jay ,   MI, USA   (02.10.09)
without being in danger of getting shot? Oh, I forgot, Israeli Arabs are not allowed in settlements!!!
16. Association for Civil Rights in Israel
Sam ,   USA   (02.10.09)
and the B'Tselem are a bunch of hypocites and Israel haters. Why are they not protesting the discrimination against him?? they are there only to protest Jews and protect Arabs, even at the cost of destroying the Jewish Identity of Eretz Israel.
17. this man dont know what he is doing
mohannad   (02.10.09)
by the way, i just read that the people in um el fahem will make a human wall to prevent him from going in, tomorrow we will have fun in um el fahim, waiting for you, you facischt
18. Re: #12 I hope that there will be no violence against him.
Moshe ,   Galut   (02.10.09)
19. Your all clueless
Elchonon ,   Chevron   (02.10.09)
Firstly it was a fluke, marzel was in the slot that was chosen by the systemb the c'te uses to assign party watchers. Baruch can burn down the arab neighbors if he wanted trouble, his stance is to point out liberal and leftist hypocricy. Jay, Actual um al fahd is inside the green line, if you want to ban jews from entering your nothing but a hypocryte when denouncing marzel's views as racist
