1. Kol ha'kavod, Viggie!
Sarah ,   New York City, USA   (06.18.09)
This is why you were elected! Let Clinton "negotiate" with an empty chair.
2. Iran is burning, Darfur is dying, Africa is starving&Hussein
Genuine Tosefta ,   Tveria   (06.18.09)
B.O. worries about houses being build, not destroyed like in Darfur and Swat valley, for Jewish families to live in.
3. Iran turmoil outcome affects the entire Middle East & world
Genuine Tosefta ,   Tveria   (06.18.09)
but Hillary leaves it up to the Iranians yet she has no shame not leaving Israel and housing construction projects alone.
4. instead, stop the violence!
oded   (06.18.09)
clinton, obama's pupy, should instead insist on plais stopping violence, stop immediately thier ant- israel propoganda, recognise israel as A JEWISH STATE, and cease immediately any fantasies of ror to the land of israel. otherwise ,she is waisting our time.
5. It's Better To Freeze Hillary Clinton
Lawrence ,   Safed Israel   (06.18.09)
But,according to Bill Clinton,she already is frozen.
6. Leiberman & Clinton
Avi W ,   Edison USA   (06.18.09)
While Leiberman had Clinton all to himself, he should have told that anti semitic bitch exactly where she could go, and to have Jimmy Carter driver her there. The only thing frozen is Clintons heart.
7. Selling Out to Achieve Peace and Quiet
Yonatan ,   USA   (06.18.09)
This whole thing reminds me of my childhood. One child is right and the other is wrong. The two cannot get along cause neither will compromise and the father, in order to have peace and quiet, forces the one most likely to compromise to give the other one whatever he desires in order to appease him so that he (the father) can have that peace and quiet. It is despicable. Obama is letting go of morals and justice. He doesn't care that israel is the persecuted and victim in this region since its creation. He doesn't care about what is fare or just. He just wants peace and quiet in the region and will sell out the Israelis to get it. But let's just see if they play along. Something tells me he will find they are a far more willful child than he believes them to be.
8. SQL politics
Matityahu ,   Slovenia   (06.18.09)
select * from WhiteHouse; where Monica > Hillary;
9. @ #6 Avi
TankerUSA ,   Minneapolis, USA   (06.18.09)
While Clinton had Lieberman all to herself, she should have told him, where all that aid Israel needs comes from, that without us Americans, you Israelis wouldn't survive. The next time you decide to bomb another country(mostly civilians), don't come running to us and begging us for emergency war supplies!!! As the age old saying goes, don't bite the hand that feeds you. Yours truly, a proud American of German Heritage, like the vast majority of Americans are!
10. Without Jewish MOney, She is Nothing
Dav Lev ,   Burbank. CAUSA   (06.18.09)
Hillary wants to be President in 3.5 or 8 years. To get there, she has to woo Jewish votes in NY, Florida and Cal. I voted for McCain..but 85% of my fellow Jews didn't. Now is the time folks, TO EMAIL, WRITE, TELEPHONE, the Sec. of State, President, and your legislators. No bedrooms for kinder, no money, and no chance you wil win next time around. Get it!. Darfur, No. Korea, Iran, Cuba, Venzuela..problems in other parts of the planet, and Obama/Hillary dwell on another few bedrooms. I could have told you guys. This ain't about bedrooms, it's just the beginning..ultimately Jerusaelm, borders, Palis army, right of return..that's the slippery slope. 5m US Jews, millions of Christians should say to Hillary, go to you know where. W/O Jewish money, she is nothing, get it, nothing, -0-.
11. Get real - Israel is foryunate to have survived
AY_Lamb ,   USA   (06.18.09)
praetor bush administration but, don't worry these evangelicals got depth and they are girding up for another pass. The mass witnessing and forced conversions are going to ensue in a shiksa palin administration.
12. Natural growth
Rose ,   Vancouver, Canada   (06.18.09)
I am just wondering why Israel is the only nation on Earth which needs to build illegal settlements because of bitrths. No other country in the world would steal it's neighbour's land for this reason.
13. Time to put Lieberman on ice
Jerrold Cohen ,   Seal Beach   (06.18.09)
Don't freeze the settlements. Freeze Lieberman's brain and thaw it out in an era when Israeli settlement policies don't threaten world peace. Then Lieberman can make any noises he wants.
14. If Israel is expected to respect past agreements, so must US
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (06.18.09)
Clinton is lying, but so is Obama. Clinton herself voted in favor of a Senate resolution in 2004 confirming the Bush-Sharon understanding. Sadly, the motley crew following White House directives don't recognize that US credibility is on the line here. If the US can renege on agreements made by a President with a long time ally, of what value is any understanding reached with the US?
15. You got that one right Lawrence
Yaron ,   USA   (06.18.09)
Couldn't agree more
16. you make USA to settle in Iraq
Simon Mohammed ,   Falls Church, VA USA   (06.18.09)
and looking for settlement in Iran how can USA say NO you are booth in the same business. the rest of the world is not the point what kind of peace are you talking about to the other. this is the real issue lebrman i think you should talk to Hania from Hamas rather then Clinton Hamas has been elected Abbas was not and so clinton but Obama was figure out your way man my advice call for a meeting with Hamas because it is your product any way
17. We Rob Them, For Peace
J. Abramoff ,   Zion   (06.18.09)
We murder their children for peace We set their fields on fire for peace We cut their olive trees for peace We imprison them for peace That is what zionism is all about!
19. no peace partner
Barney ,   USA   (06.18.09)
there is really no partner for peace. so carry on and accomodate the good people of Israel. eventually those bent on destroying Israel might realize that their tactics have only led to the growth of Israel. Keep growing-no compromise before we see true good intentions from the "palestinians". pretty good bet that wont be forthcoming so carry on settling the land of Israel as it is supposed to be done.
20. Clinton, bHo, Carter and the rest of antisemites
Arthur ,   SF, CA   (06.18.09)
can rot in hell... It's the Jewish land and it's for the people of Israel to build on it and to dwell in it. There is no palestine, there is no palestinians...
21. Shrillary wrote the book on Freeze
Pete ,   Beit Shemesh   (06.18.09)
Ask Bill, he will tell you all about his Ice Princess. Jiimmy Carter's visit to Gush Etzion and his declaration of Gush Etzion being part of Israel forever has been compared to Bilaam's blessing, I wonder if Shrillary Rotten can be compared to Bilaam's talking she-ass?
22. Sarah, I liked you better...
Terry ,   Chicago, IL   (06.18.09)
when you were "grieving". Also, Mr. Lieberman: since you're stressing the importance of "prior agreements", why don't you keep in mind the Oslo document that your government signed. I mean... it's only fair.
23. Israel will get a hard blow from USA and accept all orders!
Tayfun_Turkey ,   Istanbul   (06.18.09)
Agreement with Bush? Do not like Aunt Hilary? It is not only obama or hilary, Israeli policies are doomed to Isolation and could be only tolerated by Bush, Find another bush for yourself.
24. Israelis deserve to have their voice heard
Hunt S. Cross ,   England   (06.18.09)
Hillary Clinton. The people of Israel deserve to have their voice heard, no less than the Iranians. And it's clear they'll tell you that the towns of Judea and Samaria must remain Israeli, while Jerusalem must remain the undivided capital of their state. So why are you so keen to reward aggressors? Why give in to those who denied religious freedom in Jerusalem and who will do so again, given the chance?
26. the real block to the peace process is...
ezzi ,   tel aviv   (06.18.09)
...the kind of religious nuts that live not only in the territories but also in tel aviv, jerusalem, rammallah, tehran, washington and rome. an end to the regurgitating of ancient texts that have no bearing on the present would be the best step towards world peace..
27. #13
ok, mr. cohen, tell us exactly, point by point... how these settlements relate to the tragedies of the middle east; their wars, their killings of each other, their terrorism in every major part of the world, their racism and hate against the west and all democracies, their abysmal failures in education, the sciences, the arts, the literature, medicine, technology, etc... do please tell us how these settlements, these "horrible horrible settlements" affect life for sri lanka, for lahore, for aphganistan, for pakistan, for terror in india, for killings in tehran, for the tragedy in somalia, for the tragedy of darfur... do enlighten us how, in fact, these "genocidal and violent settlements" have anything to do with the "peaceful and civil" conditions in every part of the world that is muslim, that is ruled by theocracies and demagoguery, by despots and by tyrants. do tell us please, in your own view how these "dirty jews" in the settlements can so much affect world peace and the condition the islamic world, and as a result, america and the free world, find themselves in this mess. do tell, please!!!!! point by point, please. do not forget a single minute details. we are listening...start! hameed aboughaze

29. Settlements in Judea, Samaria, Gaza and the whole of ...
Dave Ronen ,   Haifa   (06.18.09)
Settlements in Judea, Samaria, Gaza and the whole of Jerusalem are legal. The “Mandate for Palestine” granted Jews the IRREVOCABLE right to settle anywhere in Palestine, the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, a right unaltered in international law and valid to this day. Settlements in Judea, Samaria (i.e., the West Bank), Gaza and the whole of Jerusalem are legal. The international community and the arabs should respect the original legitimity as described at :
30. Natural growth bluff
Michael ,   Haifa   (06.18.09)
"Natural Growth" is just another trick of successive Israeli governments to engage in massive building in the Occupied Territories. Obama is going to put a stop to it, and rightly so.
