1. Biden is a foll & an anti-Semitic buffoon.
Wise Saba ,   Netivot   (03.19.10)
Obummer & his cohorts should mind their own business. We don't care what they say or want.
2. years long awaited 120 houses in Gaza approved by Israel
observer   (03.19.10)
Ban Ki Moon in Moscow said: Israel has approved the release of cement and construction material for building 120 flats IN Gaza. Does Israel consider Gaza Jewish land?
3. Enough of this crap
Don Saliman ,   Nahal Oz, Israel   (03.19.10)
Why is it, that no matters what happens , Israel is always blamed for everything. It is about time, that Israel does not turn the other cheek, but attack all those who blame Israel, because they know, Israel will turn the other cheek. I am not upset, if people criticize Israel, but I am upset, that when they criticize Israel unjustly.
4. realty biets
Ami ,   Sederot - Israel   (03.19.10)
Biden and all of Obamas administration, are anti-Semite AIPAC should burn them down in the congress elections, they should know well who are they playing with, we own America, we build it....
5. Biden know better, but he has to show solidarity with the
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (03.19.10)
Boss... and the boss is of course refuses to atone, to apologize, to express any regret for attempting to humiliate Israel's prime minister for over a year and with him the entire people of Israel. In fact, Biden's boss, arguably, is the one indirectly responsible for the riots in Jerusalem, the throwing stones at Jewish worshipers, the shooting at Israel police officer and injuring him and for the death of an agricultural worker in the south: all as a result of events which began upon his attack on Israel's government, one that was seen throughout the country and the region as a green light to attack... with whatever the means may be. This is the face of Mr. Barake Hussein Obama and his relationships to the Jewish state of Israel, its government and people!!!
6. trust-building measures by both Israel and the Palestinian A
Eric ,   Tel Aviv   (03.19.10)
Lets see what trust-building measures will be asked of the Palestinian Authority
7. Biden, Obama & Clinton are provocative...
Menachem ,   ISRAEL   (03.19.10)
for having the nerve of meddling into Israel's internal affairs in our ancestral capital. Jerusalem was Jewish long before there were cities like London, Paris or Washington and it will remain Jewish forever.
8. Directionally Challenged
Yehudit ,   Bet Shemesh, Israel   (03.19.10)
Somebody want to show this, um, "distinguished personage" a map of Jerusalem with Ramat Shlomo in it?
9. Joseph Robinette Biden
Albrecht Klein ,   Germany   (03.19.10)
The Arabs want to kill all of the Jews - not because they build some appartments, but because they are Jews. The same applies to Barack Hussein Obama and his thugs. But let's wait for the midterm elections in November and let's see if the Democrats are keen for an even more devastating defeat in 2012 or if they pull the plug on this false Messiah before.
10. Netanyhou's candidacy was always in question.
noa ,   israel   (03.19.10)
Without the support of the religious right he would not be prime minister. Unfortunately, it is very clear what his priorities are: the religious factions first, America second, and peace last. The secular population doesn't even count.
11. Why can Jews not build, but Arabs can? That's apartheid!
S.   (03.19.10)
12. Deal with the truth instead of peripheral diversions
Paqid Yirmeyahu ,   Ra'anana, Israel   (03.19.10)
Don't be so gullible! The truth is that this is a full-court press, prosecuted by Obama, Emanuel, Pelosi & Co. to divert some of the domestic rage that threatens their plans to mortgage America to China and transform it into the western socialist union. In this case, the U.S. is our main adversary. Other times the Saudis need to divert domestic rage. Other times Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Russia and, of course, Europeans. But its always "Start up in Jerusalem again and divert some of this domestic anger." Yerushalayim is always the handy, convenient sacrificial lamb for every politician with domestic problems. No serious intellectual imagines that whatever concession we make here has any relation to, or effect on dissuading the great foreign powers from diverting their population's rage to us when it gets their rear out of the fire.

13. If building Jewish homes in Judaic capital offends...
Paqid Yirmeyahu ,   Ra'anana, Israel   (03.19.10)
Then, instead of announcing building 1600 homes, the project should be broken down into daily announcements so that the "offended" world has to deal with an announcement everyday until they weary of it (are desensitized to it). If plans are to build n homes/year, then simply divide n by the number of working days in a year and announce that number of new homes every morning. We are restoring our historic indigenous Judaic capital. Those who are offended by it will just have to get over it. If they insist on Armageddon they will get it. But Yerushalayim cannot be on the seculars' auction block.

14. Biden in photo looks JUST like Walter (Google Jeff Dunham)
Paqid Yirmeyahu ,   Ra'anana, Israel   (03.19.10)
15. Maybe sandcastles would do?
Lippy ,   Israel   (03.19.10)
If they don't want the cement from Israel, they can always build sandcastles! We will use the cement here.
16. #10 What are you talking about?
Menachem ,   ISRAEL   (03.19.10)
There is an overhwhelming concensus among Israelis, both secular and religious that Jerusalem must remain Israel's capital and strengthening Jerusalem is a national interest. Only the few remaining but vocal Israeli left-radicals want to dismantle the Jewish nation-state and place Israel's security in the hands of foreigners. Thankfully the voices who advocate national unity are far stronger than self-centered voices like you.
time to time to make a joke is fine :) *** IN FACT I NEVER TRUST AMERIKAN FOREIGN POLITICS . I PREFER TO WAIT AND SEE.
18. #2 observer
Albrecht Klein ,   Germany   (03.19.10)
Do the Palestinians pay for these materials?
19. Why is Jews building in Jerusalem". ...UNDERMINING"?
Alan ,   SA   (03.19.10)
20. Peace=to live TOGETHER why can't jews
Michael   (03.19.10)
build in Jerusalem. How are the arabs showing they are serious. When they want a state without Jews. Yet Israel must keep the arabs in Israel. WHERE ARE THE ARABS SHOWING THEIR GOOD FAITH. Letting elal flying over saudi arabia is an insult to the average Israeli. Enough of the facades. Biden why don't you figure out how banks can start lending it has only been a year now.
21. when is Biden going to stop sulking
zionist forever   (03.19.10)
Obama & Hillary are at least putting on the smiles for the cameras now and spilling out the traditional bullshit about America and Israel are very close allies and how we are all such good friends etc. Just the kind of thing the pro Israel voters want to hear in November. The Israel bashing doesn't go down to well at election times unless your involved with J Street or ISM then they love you. Little Joe though doesn't seen to have caught onto that yet and he is still complaining all because we hurt his feelings.
22. "Peace process", what peace process??
m   (03.19.10)
Since Oslo (anyone remembers it?) the peace process brought calamity on us, we are on the brink of self destruction and you still talk seriously about this "peace process"?? You mean peace of the dead, no?
23. Dear Joe
Michael ,   Haifa   (03.19.10)
Of course it was meant to undermine the peace process and you and your boss are a pair of nerds for not taking a firm stand
24. We WILL build in OUR Capital city JERUSALEM
Liopness ,   Israel   (03.19.10)
It has been our capital city for over 3000 years and will be for eternity. Our undivided capital city. If Obama, Clinton, Biden the EU the UN and the Russians dont like it then you can all go to hell. Oh that is where you will be going soon anyway!
25. Enough the fact that u never owned the land, you ripped it
not a blind soldier   (03.19.10)
off its owners, I do not care how good your manipulative skills are, but rest assured that the lies and bluufs you feed your ppl, in no way affect the truth. Israel wa supposed to be next to Uganda, wasn`t this the fierst suggestion? Besides, you are not to be trusted, cos I am a druze who srved the army, and saw as a kid my land being stolen, and then being sold to me and other soldiers for rediculous amounts of money that no soldier or normal person living in Israel could afford, having been just released, how long can this injustice keep going? NB! There are many newspapers interested in such stories, which r documented too :) The truth will come out
26. But its arab before you invaded
Salah al-din   (03.19.10)
27. Even Albrt Einstein warned from you zionists, or wt?
Zionism=nazism   (03.19.10)
28. It's not Israel that won't "get over" this dispute
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (03.19.10)
Biden is a putz. He says that the US and Israel need to "get over" the latest flare-up in tensions, but it is the US that keeps throwing fuel on the flame. This matter should have ended the moment Biden announced (while still in Israel) that he accepted Netanyahu's apologies for the announcement. It didn't, because Obama chose, to use Emanuel's words, not to let a good crisis go to waste. And so we have the daily beat-down from Washington - from Clinton, from Crowley, from Steinberg, from Axelrod, now again from Biden, even the words falsely attributed to Petreus. This is a deliberate attempt to show Israel who's boss, to weaken them not only so they "do as they're told" re the Palestinians, but that they not do anything the US forbids, such as striking Iran.
herb stone ,   jerusalem   (03.19.10)
After 60+ yrs of wars and violence, Israel has developed a national autism: extreme denial about the outside world. This autism will continue to create new wars, which will get worse and worse. Unless enough Israelis face their fears and recognize the entire world is criticizing Israel not because of anti-semitism, BUT BECAUSE OF ITS POLICIES, Israel as a Jewish state will eventually fall. A 2-state solution and good relations with our neighbors, while hard to imagine by some, is the only viable future. Take the risk, Israelis! Get over your past traumas!
