1. Question
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.09.09)
Why is it that we see Mrs. Borisov's face and learn her identity, but we never saw the face of the Neturei Karta woman who attempted to murder her toddler son, and we never learned her name? Eight years' imprisonment and eight months' probation. Is that what a child's life is worth these days? Shameful.
Talula ,   Israel   (12.09.09)
Hang her! or put her away for the rest of her life. 8 years with a suspended sentence isn't going to cut it! It's NOT enough. She KILLED her own child for crying out aloud - armed robbers get more than that. It's disgraceful. I hope she hangs herself.
3. 1 if you lived here - you'd be privy to that info

5. prison is not the answer
Shalom Hartman   (12.09.09)
she needs help, not being stuck in a cell with criminals. This won't help anyone; it wont bring back her son. She needs rehabilitation

The fact is that a photograph of the Neturei Karta attempted murderess never made it into Hebrew-language papers, either. You think we don't get Israeli newspapers in New York?
7. To: No. 5
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.09.09)
Nothing wrong with rehabilitation. Nothing wrong with retribution, either. Someone has to speak for her son, z.l.

I live "here" & I never saw a picture of the Neturei Karta woman who attempted to murder her son. No one saw a picture because their was no picture to see. Her identity is also unknown.
9. Post Partum depression ...
City Buddha ,   NY, New York   (12.09.09)
Did anyone considered her psychological state? Sounds like Post Partum depression to me.
10. To: No. 9
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.09.09)
Post partum depression? Her son, z.l., was four years old when she murdered him, and there is no mention that she had more recently delivered another child. Come on! This was cold-blooded murder, not post partum anything.

It is clearly stated in the article that her emotional state was unbalanced. Read it before you start making such statements!
12. To: No. 11
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.09.09)
An "unbalanced emotional state" is not the same thing as post-partum depression, and is not an excuse for the deliberate, premeditated wanton murder of a child in any event. Sorry.
