1. When Sweden gives up Stockholm and UK gives up London...
Israeli ,   United Jerusalem   (12.19.09)
i will give up Jerusalem. Until then...
2. THERE IS A REASON IT's Called JEWrusalem
jewish doctor ,   United States   (12.19.09)
the romans couldn't do it, the massed arabs couldn't do it, so why should the present gov't give in to the Jewish haters childish selfish and unwarranted demands? JEWRUSALEM forever!
3. EU, Jerusalem, Spain
Ron ,   New York, USA   (12.19.09)
If the EU continues to press Israel on Jerusalem, perhaps Israel should start supporting the Basques, the Scots, the Catalans, and other European separatist movements. What's good for the goose.... RON
4. Oh please!
Ezra ,   London   (12.19.09)
Israel will have west and Palestine will have the east of Jerusalem, so no ties are being cut. Have to learn to share children. A Palestinian state is coming with EJ as capital the sooner people accept this the better
5. Let's remain serious :
Ron B. ,   Lod   (12.19.09)
Jeusalem is Jewish as London is British and Stockholm is Swedish and should not be up for negotiation Arabs do not have any right on Jerusalem whatsoever. It is certainly not the fact that the Mosque of El Akza has been built in Jerusalem that gives the Arabs any right (when the Mosque was built, Jerusalem was already Jewish since 1500 years…). Mosques have been built in London, Paris, Brussels and other cities. Does that fact give the Arabs any right on these cities ? There is no doubt about the legitimity of the Jewish sovereignty on Jerusalem as described at :

captaindawg ,   ussa   (12.19.09)
Actually, you pompous little "global citizen", Israel doesn't want a third world cesspool like London.
7. Bravo Ayalon!
Gábor Fränkl ,   Bp, H   (12.19.09)
Just the kind of response needed. Never give in to these anti-Semites! Ashton, the Troyan Hourse of the British FO-cum Miliband, Brown et Co., Sweden, Ireland and Spain have no power, therefore no leverage. And if this wasn't enough I'd remind everyone that the above mentioned countries plus *occupied* Cyprus, Malta and Luxemburg represent the MINORITY, instead of the MAJORITY position within the European Union. Cheers!
8. Compromise
Lewis ,   Jerusalem   (12.19.09)
Let's offer the Palestinians a compromise. We will give them Meah Shearim. This way, they get part of Jerusalem, and we get rid of the violent anti-Zionists!
9. Zechariah 12
Marcel ,   Florida   (12.19.09)
The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.' We have arrived to the time written about thousands of years ago. Watch as the people and the nations who meddle with Israel's Jerusalem get cut in pieces.
10. EU
Albrecht Klein ,   Germany   (12.19.09)
If the EU wants to give half a capital to the Palestinians, they shall give them half of Brussels.
11. Good for Daniel Ayalon.Telling it like it is.
Kate ,   ISRAEL   (12.19.09)
Here's a bit for you all: Britain is the worst place to live in Europe Muslim Fanatics 'Hijack British Prison' Muslim prisoners launches a reign of terror inside a top security British jail. The fanatics are forcing fellow inmates to convert to Islam or face punishment beatings. One man who stood up to the thugs was branded with a lump of hot metal, according to a prison source. The crisis at Whitemoor jail in Cambridgeshire has led to calls by staff for the 100 Muslim inmates there to be dispersed to other prisons round the country. Some Al Qaeda supporters have set up a kangaroo court, sitting in judgment on prisoners and ordering punishments:Same as they do in our jails. The violent disciples of Osama Bin Laden have targeted even the toughest non-Muslim prisoners, including killers and rapists. UK most understanding destination for Muslims The Muslim population in the UK has hit 2.4 million, primarily because Britain is widely believed to be the best country in Europe for practising the Islamic faith. A new report has shows that in the UK there are 1.3 British born Muslims, mostly the offspring of new migrants, in addition to 1.1 Muslim immigrants. When quizzed on their choice of destination Muslims have claimed that there was more hostility to Islam in other European nations than in Britain, and that the UK government was on the whole sympathetic. Understandably so. Eh Mr. Ayalon there it is for all to read and know.
12. The Fate of Jerusalem
Dan ,   Titusville, FL   (12.19.09)
If Jerusalem is "occupied" then all of Europe is occupied as well. This is the nonsense that the left teaches trying to build paradise whilst they actually build hell on earth. FIRE CATHERINE ASHTON WITH PREJUDICE
13. Jews with beard and kipa in the diplomatic service? No?
Ariel Ben Yochanan ,   Kfar Tapuah, Efraim,   (12.19.09)
14. Bearded and kippa wearing jews
Myralee ,   Rio de Janeiro   (12.20.09)
Arie,l I am sure the jews you are so ironic about could in no time say the much needed word " NO" to the world and teach jewishness to those anxious to freeze , give, and appease our enemies.
15. Good for you Ayalon. Jersualem has only been the capital of
Jae ,   Lynn UNM   (12.20.09)
one people the past 3,000 years. No recent political arab nationalism (aka palestinian people) and oil influence can change that.
16. Nice words, but this egregious development
Shaul R ,   USA/Australia   (12.20.09)
requires some harsh official response on the highest governmental level. Where is Bibi and Avigdor? Call in the ambassadors from the EU and the countries that support this motion and give them 24 hours to pack their bags.
17. Do NOT Touch - Divide - Jerusalem
Christy ,   Boston, US   (12.20.09)
Anyone wanting to know why should just read some history. Pray for the Peace Of Jerusalem and get a blessing. Work to divide Jerusalem and get cursed.
18. #9 - Yes. That and other Scripture
Christy ,   Boston, US   (12.20.09)
is a warning to people - hands-off Jerusalem, unless you want to be destroyed. Jerusalem is a special place. It's not to be divided up. G-d gave it in trust to the Jews. I certainly don't want to be among the people who come against Jerusalem, neither should anyone else.
19. Albrech Klein, Germany @10
JUST ME ,   My Country& People   (12.20.09)
If the EU wants to give half a capital to the Palestinians, they shall give them half of Brussels. Danke schön mine herr. I agre with you a 100 %. fair's FAIR,YA?
20. I thought!!!
Sam Kaz ,   USA   (12.20.09)
Israel operates an entrenched system of racial Apartheid against its own non-Jewish inhabitants and has been illegally occupying Palestinian land in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights since 1967. It has sought to further annex these lands and has systematically transferred its own civilian population into these occupied territories in contravention of international law. Israel continues to build the illegal Apartheid wall, annexing vast swathes of Palestinian land in the West Bank and creating Palestinian ghettos, despite the ruling of the International Court of Justice that it is illegal.
21. #13 Ariel - what a load of old tripe
Avi ,   Israel   (12.20.09)
Why were they denied from entering the foreign service? please provide evidence to back up your alligation. Or are you just intent on playing the victim?
22. Rome and the delusions of the defeated
Philip Luther ,   TA, Israel   (12.20.09)
Rome thoroughly obliterated the Jewish revolt; twice. I don't understand this incredible notion in modern-day Israel that somehow the Jews won. That is ridiculous. And I know all of you will say, but we are here and the Romans are not. Well, think about it for a minute. Using that logic than Rome is alive and well. It lives on in the dream of a united Europe by people that adhere to Roman laws and live in cities founded by Romans. It lives in the Anglo World in which the USA founded its Republic to be like Rome and built a territorial and client-state empire in its image. You fools. According to your logic the Roman's didn't go anywhere. And I hardly think a united capital would have so many troops and border police patrolling everywhere nor would it be a third-world dump (in comparison to other parts of Israel).
23. Ashton
Yehudi ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (12.20.09)
Just look at Catherine Ashton face and you can see the ugly antisemitism written all over it.
24. #22 The Jews won because we are still here and Rome is NOT.
rebecca ,   Modiin   (12.20.09)
Same goes for the Greeks, Crusaders, Nazis and now the Arabs (with their European friends). The ultimate revenge. Survival.
25. It's all very simple...
Heather Czerniak ,   Milwaukee, USA   (12.20.09)
"And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it." Zechariah 12:3
26. nr 10; Albrecht Klein
Serge ,   Antwerp, Belgium   (12.20.09)
the problem is that Brussels will be the first european city to reach an arab majority. already now, arabs neighborhoods are a nogo zone for the police. regularly the arabs organise violent demonstrations burning police stations or smashing public transportation.
27. My apologies to Mr.Ayalon for deviating from>>.>.
Kate ,   ISRAEL   (12.20.09)
From the subject at hand and going on a tangent. I had to get some fact out for whomever disputes certain aspects. I know you would take it in your stride,and understand why I WROTE IT. May I once again thank you for the your the good response you gave to that woman who's knowledge of Israel lacks much to be desired. But then,the EU,like the UN have been biased against OUR country. Do we need their approval? Personally I think NOT.But,it has to be drummed into their confused heads how wrong they all are. Sincerly Kate
28. to Yehudi, Jerusalem *** you took th ewords out of my mouth,
Kate ,   ISRAEL   (12.20.09)
But,I thought it would not have been correct to call her ugly.Glad you did it for me. Ugly outside,and UGLY INSIDE. Just sent an addendum to Mr.Ayalon apologizing for going on a tangent in my post.It .was a necessary evil to be dischared when i wrote it. In point of fact not sorry I did. Then I was going to add what you wrote...decided it wouldn't be correct or prope.So, I did not mention it. Nevermind eh?
29. Foolish delusions of the defeated
Servondo J. Mark ,   Phoenix, USA   (12.27.09)
I will not belabor this point. History has shown that from the time of Moshe bringing the Jews out of Egypt until now Adonai has been faithful to all His promises to Israel. Be it victories or punishment. If you are foolish enough to not see this. Then let the next curse out of your mouth toward Israel be on you.
30. Oh, please! You are kidding, right?
Servondo J. Mark ,   Phoenix, USA   (12.27.09)
Jerusalem has and always will belong to Israel. It was given by Adonai Elohim Tze'vaot. His sovereinty to give and take away as He wills over rules any political or idealistic ranting. Be very careful who's side you stand on. There is no middle ground. It is either Israel or everyone else.
