1. Perhaps it's time to demand the implementation of 242…??
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (03.02.09)
Isn't it time to demand of Egypt to fully re-take control over the Gaza Strip based on UN Security Council Reoslution 242? Wouldn't it cost much less, both in money as well as in human life, if that were the case, and whatever money is being wasted on Gaza now will be put for good use to re-settle some of the Gazans in northern Sinai and guide them to become productive members of society through the development there as well as in Gaza economics of tourism, agriculture, industry and trade? Pouring money would do no good unless it is done within the context of a functioning state-economy, and Egypt can and should provide that context, and now.
2. No! Priority Stop Attacks On Israel & Free Gilad
Paqid Yirmeyahu ,   Ra'anana, Israel   (03.02.09)
3. The International Suckers Conference.
Terry ,   Eilat, Israel   (03.02.09)
This is absolute proof that politicians have zero brains. All the donors should be required to have referendums on aid to the perpetual Palestinian schnorers to see if their taxpayers agree on flushing more money down the Palestinian toilet. All this aid has only perpetuated the conflict, financed terrorism, enabled big-time corruption, made Palestinians totally irresponsible, & fostered a mentality of dependence & economic stagnation not to mention contributing to a high birthrate.
4. Mubarak ignores rockets falling on Israel
Egypt also allows rockets and weapons to be smuggled into Gaza, Egypt is a proxy as much as Iran is. Retake Sinai, and stop the rockets.
5. Conference is a disgrace & proof of complete stupidity

6. Rebuilding Gaza donations
Haider ,   Sweden   (03.02.09)
Why should other countries donate to rebuild what Israelis have destroyed. Israel would not servive without the billions of dollars donated to them by the US every year. I think it´s only fair that the US donation for rebuilding Gaza should come from the yearly aid to Israel.
7. "Rebuilding" Gaza
Sarah ,   New York City, USA   (03.02.09)
When Israel pulled out of Gaza, it left behind beautiful and well-maintained homes and apartment buildings; schools; hospitals; good roads and small industries (greenhouses). Look at Gaza today. Resembles London after the blitz -- and that was before Israel's incursion. The Palestinians cannot self-govern. There is no infrastructure, no civil service, no anything. And the rabble that is Hamas has squandered billions of dollars and billions of euros earmarked for improvement of the lives of Palestinians -- on weapons, to line their own pockets, and on luxurious homes in Europe. Pouring more money into Gaza is throwing good money after bad. There are many places in the world that are far more deserving than Gaza of international largesse. The Palestinians have brought terror, death and destruction everywhere they have been. They almost succeeded in destabilizing Jordan; they did destabilize Lebanon and they are now well on the way to destroying everything that Israel built for them in the West Bank. The condition in Gaza speaks for itself. The money is better off spent elsewhere. Dharfur or the Congo come to mind, just for starters.
8. One world government is coming.
secede Texas & Okla. ,   from socialist USA!   (03.02.09)
HIllary Clinton flies all around the world throwing billions of $$$ like it is monopoly money. Why? Because it is! USD are worthless, irredeemable pieces of toilet paper that cost maybe 3 cents to make. She represents Barrack MUGABE Obama, the president of the United States of ZIMBABWEA. This man, Mugabe/Obama, will soon be passing out trillion dollar bills so he can debase all monetary units. Why? So they can introduce a one world money unit all nations will have to use in a one world government. Much of Mugabe/Obama's actions are right out of the communist manifesto.
9. #6 You European really suck, what an idiot
Totally cluless but has an opinion. So typical..............
DAVID ,   JUDEA   (03.02.09)
While the USA is on the brink off bankruptcy and Europe which has been morally bankrupt for as long as we can remember , they are giving money to the Islam nazis. It is an insult to the many people loosing their homes and jobs , that this money is being wasted on savages, who make the nazis look like choirboys. Although it will be to deaf ears to many Israelis here , it is again a warning that we are a seperate nation , that needs to keep the instructions handed down to us at Sinai, in order to hold on to our land , which is our inheritance. All these moves made by the worlds nations are just a way to stick to us and a clear sign off arrogance and hatred towards Hashem, taken out on us. These same nations will for sure pay a much higher price, then the money they are giving in support off a barberic death worshipping cult.
11. No truce before recognition
Egyptian 3569   (03.02.09)
Please Mubarak and Egyptian officials: Stop this superficial talk. Hamas has to change its charter and accept Israel as a nation. Recognition of Israel is more important than a truce. It will create a lasting peace. Same goes to Israeli officials. .
12. ALL of Canaan is an EVERLASTING possession of the Jews
David ,   NYC   (03.03.09)
Hashem has made a covenant with the Israelites (Jews) through Abraham that ALL, ALL, ALL, ALL of the land of Canaan (Israel) is for the Jewish people for an EVERLASTING possession. Don’t break this covenant. This is Hashem’s blessing onto the Jewish people. We have learned throughout history of the dire consequences of breaking our covenants with Hashem. Don’t be pressured by unbelievers and world leaders. They don’t matter. Hashem is our savior. Israel has been our land for thousands of years. Those that have afflicted pain, suffering, destruction, conquest, occupation and death upon the Jewish people throughout the centuries will be dealt with on Judgment Day. After the occupations, destruction, exiles, genocide, holocaust and wars, the Jewish people exist today only because of Hashem. We believe in the Moshiach and pray every day for his coming. Genesis 17- 7 And I will establish My covenant between Me and thee and thy seed after thee throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee and to thy seed after thee. 8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land of thy sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.' 9 And God said unto Abraham: 'And as for thee, thou shalt keep My covenant, thou, and thy seed after thee throughout their generations. 10 This is My covenant, which ye shall keep, between Me and you and thy seed after thee: every male among you shall be circumcised.
13. India Gave Muslims Pakistan. It DID NOT Work!
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (03.03.09) PA Muslims CHEERING murders of Americans on 9/11 In the last 10 years India suffered 60,000 terror attacks that killed about 18,000 people. The horrific Mumbai attack added to the list. India's suffering Hindus identify with Israeli suffering. Historian Will Durant: "The Islamic conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. It is a discouraging tale, for its evident moral is that civilization is a precious good, whose delicate complex of order and freedom, culture and peace, can at any moment be overthrown by barbarians invading from without or multiplying within." We must fight for our survival before it is forever too late. In the the last 1400 years, radical Islam killed 270 million people: 120 million Africans, 60 million Christians, 80 million Hindus and 10 million Buddhists.
