1. Consider it an act of g-d.
Ypip ,   Canada   (03.10.09)
2. I never new
ghostq   (03.10.09)
shahids have a price, mmm... money can rais the dead, that's what the palestinians think.
3. not happy about martyrdom any longer?
moshe   (03.10.09)
4. # 3
hakim ,   usa   (03.10.09)
what cant we have the best of both worlds!!!!!!!!!!
5. Free speech
Shalom ,   Israel   (03.10.09)
It is amazing how these Arabs who have no free speech in their countries learn how to abuse the right we give them in Israel. Why bring the case in Nazerth why not in Sederot; maybe a Kassam rocket will then fall during the trial and they can have double jeopardy. what a waste of Israel taxpayer money to hear this case.
6. Shouldn't they sue Hammas for the Terrorist acts?
a ,   a   (03.10.09)
7. They should sue hamas
Conker ,   Israel   (03.10.09)
And people who voted for Hamas.
8. Gaza family sue
Dr John ,   Rechovot Israel   (03.10.09)
Instead of sueing Israel( which after 8 yrs of constant provocation finally put the record straight) they should sue those Hamas thugs who in the first place that put them in that dangerous position. They wont of course because if they dared they would have another 29 dead family members on their hands!!
9. only way out
Peace Lover ,   world, earth   (03.10.09)
I sympathize with these poor victims. But of course, these people agree that Israel had no choice because Hamas was shooting rockets at Israeli civilians. The only way out is to immediately move all Arab civilians to safety, for example to Egypt. Israel and Hamas will fight it out, but since there are no innocents in Gaza, no one will get hurt. When there is peace, they can move back in.
10. This is great news!
John ,   Europe   (03.10.09)
A GAZAN family suing Olmert, Barak and Ashkenazi on NAZARETH District Court... I think this news should be transmited to every major network and TV station as a CAPITAL PROOF against "Israeli apartheid sistem" Where in the world did you see that Jews are suing Hitler, Goering and Keitel in Berlin District Court for "misdemenour of SS during war operations towards Jewish civilians"? Or that negroes sue South African politicians for their treatment? This is big news and VERY good PR potential.
11. ??
Israeli ,   Israel   (03.10.09)
Has the Hamas or other Arab terror organizations ever paid Jewish families whose members they murdered?
12. Im sure they Believe in Santa Claus
Pietro ,   Montreal   (03.10.09)
I cant hold myself and laugh Histericaly... They shoud bless us to make their dream come true..... They want 72 virgins and Money to spoil the virgins.... LOLLLLLLLLLLLLThey want the cake and eat it to,,,LOLLLLL At the end I am not sure they believe in the virgins waiting for them... but I am positively sure they believe in Santa Claus
13. Just imagine for one second...
Indigenous ,   far far east   (03.10.09)
that 29 of your family were lost in one strike...and then write your talk back. Most of the talk back are from arrogant heartless individuals. And for 11, yes they did...even when it is debatable that they are terrorists
14. It should be the other way around
Trumpeldor ,   eurabia   (03.10.09)
We ,Jews ,should sue these same people who voted for hamas and support daily launching of rockets and abducted or tried to abduct our soldiers All these evil acts whereas whole gaza is free of Jews... But of course,we Jews are so stupid that we allow those outrageous conducts and insane law suits
15. Latest pathetic game - until they are belted the next time
Scott   (03.10.09)
These people have a lot answer for themselves which would need to be dealt with before they can 'sue' anybody. Just idiots
16. there is no fair in israel
Jalal ,   Gaza   (03.10.09)
17. It was Allah's will
Musa   (03.10.09)
Sue Him.
18. Sue the Gazan family back for voting for Hamas
Genuine Tosefta ,   Tveria   (03.10.09)
so that targeting Jews will be more powerful.
19. The worst is...
Walt K ,   Sherbrooke, Canada   (03.10.09)
In the case of a victory in court, Palestinian attackers will receive a clear green light from Israel court to kill jews.
20. I hear Gaza getting billions from world for "reconstruction"
USA   (03.10.09)
Just put it on their tab.
21. Just imagine for another second....
Inditwo ,   Far Far West   (03.10.09)
that someone wants to kill you and will not rest from plotting against you. Raising their children to kill you, their life-sacred goal is to destroy you. (When that is done- the rest of the world is next- for those extremists- you may begin shaking and running for your life). And for 13- NO they DID NOT. Who will you sue? Someone who does not acknowledge your existence? Do you really think they 'count' you and give you the time of day- or finances? REALLY- where did you grow up and want propaganda are you being fed?
22. Compensation? For what?
Kelly ,   In Israel   (03.10.09)
They want compensation? Fine,we i can join in this charade too,and ASK THEM TO PAY FOR THE ROCKETS FIRED DAILY into our cities,and traumatizing,injuring families and children for nearly 8 years.So,I for one say:Go for it you dumbites.. We want a very large amount and it must be in shekels,not in $$$ because the $$$ are becoming worthless by the day. Oh yeah,compensation MY FOOT! Hamas go cry somewhere else,for your woes. and STOPCRYING WOLF.In any case you sleep with dogs,and wake up with flease..
23. their hutzpa knows no limit!
oded   (03.10.09)
"anyone who harbors a terrorist is a terrorist"(gwb).. based on that this arab family should be thankfull for the most ethical, moral armed forces in the world!
24. Dig the history of this family
Daniel ,   Israel   (03.10.09)
Many of these members may have fired rockets to Israel of encouraged suicide attack on Israel, they will oew much more to Israel! Find out.
25. But Hamas swore to all of us that they "love death," so what
usa   (03.10.09)
is the problem?
26. what a joke!
mike ,   raanana, israel   (03.10.09)
These people have only themselves to blame for their losss of life. If anyone should be sued, they should sue their own Hamas government who's behavior and crimes against innocent Israeli Jews have put their family members in harm's way. Pleae, lok at yourselves although I am sure that in your area, your would have your throat sliced if you did!
27. to #1 Yepep: "Holocaust, consider it as an act of G-d"
deadareequal   (03.10.09)
28. To #13
leo ,   USA   (03.10.09)
I understand your anger and even disgust, 'those heartless Israelis'. If I may suggest however, before you do your goody two-shoes shtick go spent few years under constant bombardment. Until then I suggest you forgo exercising your superior morals at expense of others.
29. Why is the enemy allowed to use our courts?
jason white ,   afula,israel   (03.10.09)
Did the germans sue the U.S. and britain for the firebombing of dresden? Did the japanese sue the U.S. for hiroshima or nagasaki? The enemy should not be allowed to use our court system and their lawyer disbarred for working for the enemy of Israel. Besides that,where the hell do they get that figure of 851 million shekels? I would not give two agorot for everyone in gaza together.
30. heartless
sean ,   new york   (03.10.09)
Reading all these posts just makes me feel sorry for all of you. Such heartless people that make fun of dead kids. Its sad and I really feel sorry for you.
