31. Dear Quartet,
Mina ,   Haifa, Israel   (03.19.10)
You are to refrain with immediate effect from: 1) Telling us how to run our country and where to build what. 2) Ignroing the scurity needs of our country and its Jewish population. 3) Appeasing to the Muslim Arabs. 4) Forcing us to have a Palestinian state before we agree & ready. However, if you still insist, you can create one on the very vast lands that your governments have been occupying for centuries. 5) Attempting to decide where Jews should & can live. 6) Attempting to seek solutions for some Fakestinians who can just return to where they came from, Jordan, Egypt, etc 7) Attempting to seek so-called solutions that will continue to endanger Israel and its Jewish population. 8) Attempting to get a Noble Peace price on the expenses of the security of Israel. 9) Failing to deal with the many problems that plague your very own countries. Attempting to divert attentions from your lack of popularities amongst your own people. 10) Hammering Israel again & again, pretending that all the world's problem start and end with us, when they are not! Shalom from Israel, we are here to stay, with Ashem's help!
32. #14 Nour, Palestine
Albrecht Klein ,   Germany   (03.19.10)
The Palestinians will be free, but will the Palestinians also stop shooting rockets into Israel? I don't think so.
33. Thanks to those of Americanh Jews who
Vardina   (03.19.10)
voted for Obama. You could as well vote for Abumazen. Same result.
34. The Palestinians unilaterally stop Direct
Michael   (03.19.10)
negotiations and the world settles for indirect talks no threats to the Palestinians, The U.S. is not insulted. Yet a plan to build in the future that is like the worst thing imangible. The U.S. is not a honest broker aand their obama and clinton have no credibility. Israel has to explain its building policies?! Clinton could careless how many building are being built in New York or any other U.S. state. The Peace process is shame. Netanyahu stay strong the pressure will only get worse if you capitulate.
35. #15: God gave? He took it away for 2000 years
Ted   (03.19.10)
because of religious fanatics like you.
36. Quartet calls Egypt to stop having chldrn & let Gazans occup
Egyptland4GazaChldrn   (03.19.10)
37. Psalm 2
Ken Quinn ,   Amsterdam   (03.19.10)
1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the L_RD, and against his anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. 4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the L_rd shall have them in derision. 5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. 6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
38. World vs Israel- LOL
Marcel ,   Florida   (03.19.10)
WHY DO the nations assemble with commotion [uproar and confusion of voices], and why do the people imagine (meditate upon and devise) an empty scheme?The kings of the earth take their places; the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and His Anointed One (the Messiah, the Christ). They say,Let us break Their bands [of restraint] asunder and cast Their cords [of control] from us. He Who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision [and in supreme contempt He mocks them]He speaks to them in His deep anger and troubles (terrifies and confounds) them in His displeasure and fury... Psalm 2
39. Quartet demand terror state like Iran/Syria for WestBank/Gaz
Bruce Stein ,   Chicago USA   (03.19.10)
... while the US/EU claim to be at war (Iraq/Afghan) with the same terrorist they demand set up a state on the West Bank/Gaza. One can only conclude that the US/EU soldiers are in fact human sacrifice to the Islime G-d and that this war is in fact a phoney “nice Long lasting War and sell lots of weapons” exactly as I informed every member of congress between 1989-1991. c 1991 getty… We send army men to die fighting people; while we demand that that same enemy/people set up a terror state on the West Bank and Gaza exactly like the States we are fighting/human sacrifice...this is "bazaar… The US: with friends like this who needs enemies... It is of course only the leaders of Islime that "insult the Koran/Islime" by claiming the Jews have know connection with the land, (the Jews who understand their faith become Muslims Koran:3:113) The Koran is obsessed with converting the Jews; but according to today’s "insulters of Islime", "Jews have no claim/connection to the land" except the Koran makes it clear that “the Jews exist on the land” predating Islime. Something is rotten outside Denmark! I demand these rascals that obviously know nothing about the Koran/Islime stop insulting Islime/Koran by claiming Jews have no connection to the land! And yes, Jews have a Torah and a 3000 year written connection to the land which predates Islime by 2000 years. How can Islime claim to know who was on the land for the 2000 years before it/Islime was founded? The US may do well to read what the prophet Zechariah wrote 2000 years ago: in chapter the prophet describe what awaits the countries that align against Jews in Jerusalem in: wow, the era we are in now! Including that there would be "self hating".. Islime is at war with the West to prevent free speech to criticize Islime. The leaders of Islime, Al Qaeda, Iran et al, are dictators (or worse) that parade as religious.
40. #35.
Eyal ,   USA   (03.19.10)
I rather be a religious fanatic than a loser with no G-D like you. Perhaps you should live in Palestine and see what I mean.
41. I don't recall Israel voting this bimbo into office.
Steven Wilson ,   Anchorage, Alaska   (03.19.10)
Tell her to hit the road with her husband.
42. blah blah blah
dan   (03.19.10)
now is the time to build in the E1 area.
43. Russia is building nuclear power plants in Iran...
Brian ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (03.19.10)
...and supplying arms to both Iran and Syria, has it's navy in Syria, and is telling us not to build in our country. How does our government react, it allows Russians entrance to Israel, without visas. France has stabbed Israel in the back not delivering arms we paid for, during war no less, England did everything it could to destroy Israel at conception and has been trying to do so ever since, and the US is throwing us under the bus. So what do we care. Let's just prepare for war, this is not Warsaw, this is Israel. Our biggest war ever is coming, let's fight to win this time, and not just to defend. Let's put an end to the war of attrition being fought against us. Once and for all, time for Israel to stand up. Also time for all the Jews around the world to make a choice, stand with Israel here in Israel, or stay out there in the Galut, I made my choice, I saw what was coming, I made Aliyah, over a year ago. I'm Jewish Israel is my home, Jerusalem my heart, I stand with Israel. Those claiming to be Zionists from the US, you are not, you ~support~ Zionism, a Zionist would be posting from Israel, I'm a Zionist. I'm what they hate the most, so I know I'm doing what's right.
44. #16 International Law!?!?!??!
Brian ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (03.19.10)
Ha ha, who is making the laws, and why? Are they enforced equally? We lived by your laws for many centuries, it never went well for us,we have our own country now, so kiss my ass, you little punk!!!!! Where was international law, every time Israel was attacked? No where. Where was international law for Sudan? Shri Lanka? Georgia? the list goes on and on. We have seen how international law works.
45. #29: "West Bank and Gaza will be again Israel forever"
Alitar ,   Paldora   (03.19.10)
So be it. And who will you vote for from far away USA? One of the Palestinian parties or for the new Jewish minorities ?! Perhaps, democratic votes shouldn't be no longer allowed, making way for the Apartheid state of Greater Israel.
46. Independent Pal state within 24 months
No way,unless Turkey to give back the stolen Turkey and Cyprus as well as the other islamic countries such as Pakistan,Iran,Indonesia,Malaysia,& others to their real owners. You must understand that these countries were captured by Islam under the ruthless sword of Islam.
47. #32, Mr. Klein - How many Arab Israelis are shooting Rockets
A Bethlehemite   (03.19.10)
The Majority of the Palestinians living in Israel and are Israeli citizens live pretty much in peace. They have rights (although not equal) and are not under occupation. Give the Pals in Gaza and the WB real freedom right to self determination and you'll get similar results as the Pals in Israel. And yes, Gaza is still occupied. Israel still controls the population registry, airport, sea port, borders etc, same as the WB. So dont go there.
48. No Two State Final Solution EVER!
Chaim ,   Israel   (03.19.10)
Thankfully, Israel finally has a few politicians, like Lieberman, who don't bow and scrape at the feet of Obama, the EU, quartet and other malevolent interlopers. However, we need to go further. We need to tell the self appointed busybodies of the quartet to mind their own business. We also need to declare, once and for all, there will be no Two State Final Solution EVER!
49. this is a call for half a million people to cease reproduce,
edna   (03.19.10)
cease life and just wait until the palestinians who since 1937 refused to accept their own state, to set one now. and meantime they neglect human tragedies in africa, asia, the caribeans, including haiti. this is the un for you.
50. #2 - Really? KInda felt like the Arabs were.
William ,   Israel   (03.19.10)
The hit NYC on 9/11, the US gives them contracts and increased immigration quotas. The "palestinians" commit war crimes and the world (mostly EU) invites them to meet with world leaders. The Arabs destroy historical Jewish ties to areas in the region to create facts on the ground, when Israel retaliates to protect those left the world claims Israel is a provocateur. The Arabs violate Intl Laws and conventions, and the world is numbingly silent. Must be all that black gold in their system.
51. #6 - Sure, just as soon as Arabs accept Israel in region
William ,   Israel   (03.19.10)
When the Arabs accept Israel as a Jewish State and one with people who have historical ties to the land, and all places of worship will be protected and given equal access - then we'll talk about borders. What sense is there to speak about borders when one side disagrees with your right to even exist. What would you negotiate on - the color of your casket?
52. Quartet is part of the dark forces
Brod ,   USA   (03.19.10)
The Quartet is part the dark forces. They are AntiSemite Pagans. Israel should not be intimidated by them. In the next election the political Party that Hillary and Obama belong will be trashed. They will be rejected by the American people for cowing to Islamist-Jihadism. Similarly, in Europe, the Leftists will be swept away by patriotic Europeans led by Geert Wilders as they open their eyes to the rising threat of Islamist-Jihadism in Europe. Israel should say NO to the dark forces. Judeo-Christian America supports Israel. Israel should continue to build and build in the liberated Land of Israel. Israel is a strong nation and can stand on its own feet in defending itself. The Quartet better understands this as Nixon did in 1973.
53. Jerusalem is and will remain Jewish
cas reader   (03.19.10)
Israel MUST make it clear to the international community that the status of Jerusalem is non-negotiable. All these criticism about housing for Jews could have been avoided if Israel would have said from the start that Jerusalem will remain the undivided capital of the state of Israel. Israel MUST not give any hope to the international community that East Jerusalem could be reliquished to the Palestinians.
54. The Arabs are unwilling to make any concession.
Ron B. ,   Lod   (03.19.10)
When the enemy is an Arab entity unwilling to make any concession whatsoever, and when the world expects Israel always to give and the Arabs always to take, then to continue along that same path to nowhere, becomes an Israeli self-delusion, leading to worse: Self destruction. It is high time for Israel to be making demands upon the Arabs, starting with territorial concessions from the vast Arab world. To put things right :
55. The International Quartet of Zoning ...
Paul ,   USA   (03.19.10)
Enforcerment ! You would think that these important people would have more serious issues to resolve - like maybe Iran ? What's next, will they start handing out tickets to Israel citizens who don't comply with international zoning rules ? Why stop there, inspect the plumbing also !
56. Let's pray these nations will have so many troubles...
Keren   (03.19.10)
they'll forget all about their obsession with Jews and Israel... Amen...
57. If Israel wants to build on Palestinian lands
Katherine ,   Australia   (03.19.10)
If Israel wants to build on Palestinian lands across the Green Line border...then the Palestinians should be permitted to cross into Israel and build homes inside of Israel's borders. Fair is fair! Of course this means no more two-state solution.
58. There is PLENTY of open land inside of Israel
Adam ,   Canada   (03.19.10)
There is PLENTY of open land inside of Israel's internationally-recognized border, why can't Israel go build there and leave the Palestinians alone? Send Jews to live in the Negev instead.
59. Wouldn't it be more fair to include ALL building?
William ,   Israel   (03.19.10)
If the Quartet wants to be fair, make the call for ALL building in disputed areas - from E. Jerusalem to Jenin to Rafah to be stopped immediately until a final agreement is made. Calling on Jews to stop building (using building codes, permits, etc.) but allow illegal, unsafe Arab building in the same areas is nothing less than racism. Per law, the land "pals" want is not really their's no matter how you slice it. It is public land that was won in battle by Israel (governing body) and disclaimed by Jordan publicly in 1988. Israel has made every effort to offer this disputed land for the 2nd State provided "Pals" end the conflict and accept 2-States side-by-side. They refuse to do that. End of story.
60. #14 - Nour - Are you sure your calculations are correct?
William ,   Israel   (03.19.10)
Today - there IS an Israel but there is no Palestine 2000 years ago, there WAS an Israel but there was no Palestine. Not sure which distorted math you're using. Perhaps the kind that turns 4 dead terrorists into 150 civilians under the age of 5. You had an audience for your "full peace for land" trick back in 2002, but your radical side (i.e. 95% of "palestinians") vowed to continue until Israel was destroyed. Ooops - another mis-calculation.
