31. Sarah, you've missed the point, like all..
Noor ,   Palestine   (10.16.09)
other zionists on this forum. Those countries you just mentioned don't brag about them possessing "the most moral army in the world," only YOU do. That's the difference. "Given their political bent, shouldn't they just set up shop in Gaza or South Lebanon?" Silly girl, of course not. Rather, with cooperation from the USA and other security council members, the entire UN should move forward and take necessary precautions to prosecuted the terrorist state of israel and send its leaders and commanders to the Hague. Yes, baby!
32. Kudos to Marco!
Noor ,   Palestine   (10.16.09)
Dont forget the evil commander Leibovitch and all the others that took part in this massacre.
33. A Word from the God of Israel
Rachel Foreman ,   AZ., USA   (10.16.09)
before the birth of the decree, the day shall pass like the chaff; yet not before the hot anger of the LORD comes on you, yet not before the day of the LORD's anger comes on you. Seek the LORD, all the meek of the earth who have done His justice; seek righteousness; seek meekness. It may be you shall be hidden in the day of the LORD's anger. For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a ruin. They shall drive out Ashdod at the noonday, and Ekron shall be rooted up.
34. god will burn every killer in hell
Jalal ,   Gaza   (10.16.09)
let me see hamas killed 2 israelis israel killed 1700 palestinian i hope hell can have 2 palestinians and 1700 israelis
35. Deporl UNRWA. Israel can stand up to UN terrorists.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (10.16.09)
36. That Decision Is Sick and Just Plain WRONG!
emanon ,   USA   (10.16.09)
37. UN = NUAJ
emanon ,   USA   (10.16.09)
Maybe a name change is in order: Nations United Against Jews
38. Mahmood from London
New Yorker ,   New York   (10.16.09)
Are you a comedian?
39. To Zionist Forever
New Yorker ,   New York   (10.16.09)
The Jews suffered for millenia, not just the last 8 years. Those among the nations who ganged up on Israel and always condemn her are the perpetrators. And the ones who make Jewish blood cheap are the Jews themselves. To every attack - suicide, stone or otherwise - a response should be punitive and devastating with promises of more to come.
40. Justice Must Be Done
Timberwolf ,   Bristol, UK   (10.16.09)
May the wrath of the Almighty fall on the cursers of Israel his chosen people. Damn every nation that voted for this abomination.
41. A complete lie to say UN endorsed Goldstone Report!
Cynic ,   USA   (10.16.09)
The resolution only adopted the allegations made against Israel, not Hamas. No other proof needed to show that it was always their intent to accuse Israel, even before investigation occurred.
42. how
Barney ,   USA   (10.16.09)
about abstaining from publishing articles on un on ynet. incredibly predictable results from an incredibly backward, prejudiced, one sided, orgainization. their policy is everyone is ok and do whatever they want and everybody can defend themselves except Israel because our organization is made up of countries that hate Israel and Jews. Nations that abstained from the vote should be ashamed and only did so out of fear of upsetting muslims taking over their countries and didn't want them to go on a bombing rampage which is their answer to everything. Israel stand strong. When you are right you don't have to think about UN bs.
43. To: No. 17
Sarah B ,   New York / Saviyon   (10.16.09)
I agree with you 150 percent. The overwhelming majority of the countries represented in the United Nations are ruled by corrupt officials, are theocracies, out and out dictatorships. Genocide is commonplace in so many of these countries, and no one ever hears about it. The carnage throughout Africa goes beyond obscene, and no one does anything about it. When initially founded, the United Nations represented a positive force for change in the world, but then it and its purposes got hijacked by a group of nations whose interests did not extend to improving conditions in their respective countries. They were most certainly not interested in promoting health, welfare or democratic principles, or any positive change for that matter. Were it not for the fact that there are so many people throughout the world who live in desperate circumstances and whose cry for help is simply ignored by the one body created to help them, it would be downright amusing to watch the machinations of these "diplomats." But there is so much suffering -- real suffering -- and there is nothing funny about that. That is a tragedy. I wish that Israel would unilaterally withdraw from the United Nations -- it has the added benefit of immediately rendering null and void all resolutions passed against Israel. Taiwan has done just splendidly without membership in the United Nations. Certainly hasn't hurt them, and has probably helped them considerably. I agree with you about Jews (by which I mean primarily the State of Israel, but not exclusively) hitting back hard. A good place to start would be deporting all Palestinians on the West Bank to Jordan (country of their citizenship at the time Israel defeated Jordan in 1967 and acquired the West Bank). Reacquire Gaza and throw all those miscreants right back to Egypt, country of their citizenship. Hey -- nothing ventured, nothing gained. There are a lot of countries that can talk the talk and fall dismally short when it comes to walking the walk. Blissfully, Israel can do both. 'Bout time Jews did. As if anyone would do anything about it anyway -- of course, there will be dozens of resolutions passed in the United Nations, in plenary and special sessions, but -- hey -- no impact on Israel. And I don't see anybody foolish enough to try a military solution. Frankly, there is no one strong or committed enough.
44. To: No. 13
Sarah B ,   New York / Saviyon   (10.16.09)
Have you ever seen the aftermath of a suicide bombing of a bus? How about of a pizza parlor? How about a hotel restaurant hosting a family Passover seder? Do you have any sense of what it was like for schoolchildren in southern Israel living under eight years of daily missile barrages from Gaza? Families who had to sleep in bomb shelters for weeks and weeks and weeks on end? Children who went to school in the bomb shelters? Do you know how traumatized people have become? Do you know that the suicide bombers sent by Hamas are responsible for the deaths of well over a thousand innocent civilians? And tormented thousands more? The fact is, Ismael, if Hamas did not send suicide bombers, if Hamas did not fire missiles at civilian population centers on a daily basis for eight years, Israel would never have harmed a single hair on the head of a single Gazan. But you did send the suicide bombers, and you did send the missiles -- Israel waited patiently for eight long years before retaliating. But enough was finally enough, Ismael. You got your just desserts -- simply put, you got what you voted for. I have absolutely no sympathy for you. I think, sir, you do not like to see the light of the truth. Please try to open your eyes.
45. To: No. 16
Sarah B ,   New York / Saviyon   (10.16.09)
Feeling nervous? Moi? Hardly.
46. To: No. 20
Sarah B ,   New York / Saviyon   (10.16.09)
Bravo. A voice in the wilderness. I hope someone listens to you, sir, but I am afraid that will not happen. Some people just want nothing to do with the truth and with reality.
47. To: No. 28
Sarh B ,   New York / Saviyon   (10.16.09)
Evasive? Never. I do agree. Human justice will be followed with heavenly wrath on the criminal scum that is Hamas.
48. To: No. 29
Sarah B ,   New York / Saviyon   (10.16.09)
Why wait for divine intervention? All these great friends of the Palestinians -- let's ship all Palestinians in Medinat Israel to them. If they love them that much, they can have them. Israel surely does not want them and does not need them. Let's see if they change their tune once they have to deal with the terrorist scum that Israel has had to deal with. Frankly, it should be lots of fun to watch. I'll bring popcorn and soda.
49. Justice For The Palestinian People
World Citizen ,   the world   (10.16.09)
This day has been a long time in coming. For sixty-one years the Israeli military has done as it wished with the native population of Palestine. I hope that every Israeli soldier who leaves Israel will now have to look over his shoulder with fear of arrest.
50. 10. You're damn straight!
Truth   (10.16.09)
The US and the balance of the Western World better be damn careful, because their time is coming with UN investigations in Iraq and Afghanistan. The only legitimate action, as far as the UN is concerned, is islamofacist murder through out the world. Self defense against it is strictly forbidden.
51. 13, Stop trying to destroy us and our people
Truth   (10.16.09)
and we won't be forced to fight you. Until that time...we have stopped caring about the sanctimonious bullshit of ilamfacists liars and their bed partners. Am Israel Chai
52. 17...sad but accurate
53. 18. it is a victory for Pal Arabs and a defeat for humanity
But Israel will survive and prosper. Have no doubt. AM ISRAEL CHAI
54. u are a fool and this report will one day come back
to haunt the UN as the Islamofacist body that it is. Nothing good will come from this for you. You will see.
55. I have gained a new resespect for the UN, and I'm Canadian
Wile E. Coyote ,   Ontario, Canada   (10.16.09)
Not only did France and Britain choose not to vote against the resolution, 11 other countries also abstained, making the victory for justice and the rule of law even greater.
56.  my dear cousin ishmael #14
sofia ,   USA   (10.16.09)
i under stand that you dear ishmael and your mother hager moved to al-jazeera not the TV station but MECCA in todays saudi arabia,what are you doing back in gaza,the city of samson and delilah??!!!
57. Zionists Hate
Zionists Are Morons   (10.16.09)
They hate the UN, after it let them rip off Palestine. They hate the Palestinians for not rolling over and dying after they were ripped off by the zionists They hate the world for not letting them rip off the Palestinians in "peaze" No end in sight to zionist hate.
58. What a sick world we live in..
BJL ,   usa   (10.16.09)
Where terror groups launch 8000 missiles into Israel...and then hide behind women and children....and Israel, who drops warnings from the air and callsthem on the blamed by the UN. We now have returned to 1930's Jew soon after the murderous 1940's? Sick... Israel is not even allowed to defend itself. sick sick world.
59. This was a message to Israel, act or UN will
Bloodyscot ,   Dallas, Texas   (10.16.09)
The US and some EU countries only wanted this stop because of some parts of the report on warfare. Much of the world want to see peace in the ME and feel that Israel and Hamas are the two main roadblocks.
60. #6 I lost respect for the UN years ago.
vicky ,   ashkelon Israel   (10.16.09)
Don't forget that the so called Security Council is 75% Arab. I would not expect anything else from such a Useless bunch of ignorant people. The only people we can trust is ourselves.
