Anna Maria Sedda ,   Rome-Italy   (03.27.10)
2. Settlements aren;t the issue
Jackie ,   Florida   (03.27.10)
Or at least they weren't until Hussein Obama and his cohorts made them the issue. Arabs have been attacking Jews in Jerusalem on any excuse possible, as my still unusable right arm attests, after I was hurt by a stone "falling" from the Temple Mount when I was praying at the Kotel several years ago.
3. What a joke
murdock ,   germany   (03.27.10)
And with this scumbag full of hate and lies Israel is supposed to make a lasting peace.What are the world leaders (especially Obama) smoking?Can not write more,must vomit!
4. No 2
Arn. ,   SWEDEN.   (03.27.10)
As a women YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE PRAYED at the Kotel as it is a holy place.
5. Abbas asks the world to change history to suit his story
Eric ,   Tel Aviv & New York   (03.27.10)
If Abbas wants to talk about the land Israel liberated in '67 that is fine. If he wants to discuss the restoration of Jewish locations and holy sites destroyed by the Palestinian's under Jordan that is fine. If he wants the security council to undo past resolutions and change history to suit his claims this is not fine.
6. Abbas Demands
Abby ,   op,ks   (03.27.10)
Abbas demands additional 500 million as he says " We will cling to every grain of soil and every stone in Jerusalem" and next thing in this twisted mind, he says, we are willing to launch peace talks! Two state solution: No! The state of Israel could never give these hating people enough. There is no solution except walls, and restrictions. Land , money, a better life for the average person is'nt what this is about. This is a political power struggle and all the money and perks that go with it.
7. Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all peoples
Psalms 83 ,   Selah   (03.27.10)
Thus says the LORD 'Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it'” (Zechariah 12:2,3).
8. "Jordan" is "palestine" = 2nd part of the british mandate!

9. Abbas just loves the word "ignite". Last week
Harry Wright ,   UK   (03.27.10)
he wanted to ignite a holy war on the whole world and this week he wants to ignite Jerusalem itself. Seeing that it was built 1,000 years BC by the Jewish King David as the capital of the Jewish Nation and according to Abbas, it is now being "Jewified" today, all he has done is confirm that it was STOLEN from the Jews and "De-Jewified". Disgusting THIEVES! If Abbas can talk about igniting Jerusalem, that too confirms the insignificance of Jerusalem as a holy site to the Arabs. If it was holy, there would be NO talk of igniting it. Can you even IMAGINE the Arabs talking about igniting Mecca? Jerusalem is only REAL ESTATE to the Arabs and through bad mind and greed they don't want the Jews and Christians to have their holy site.
10. Save Mecca from Islamisation!
Yaniv ,   Israel   (03.27.10)
11. @ no. 4
AJ - Raalte   (03.27.10)
Your compassion for a real live victim of Arab crimes is overwhelming! How do you know Jackie is a woman in the first place, and why should a woman not pray at a holy place if she is so inclined?
12. Nazi babbling about "Jewification" relieves Israel of burden
Paul Freedman ,   Falls Church, USA   (03.27.10)
Abbas and company's continuous Nazi-style babbling about "Jewification" relieves Israel of any moral dilemma in letting inertia take its place under Shas hegemony in the Interior and local municipalities. Besides the repugnant stench and implicit threat of violence of this paranoid reaction to "the terror of the bulldozers" Abbas is leaving himself a huge out to claim the West too. Let the United States sit in the Arab delegation and Abbas can decide to hold direct talks with Israel or stay home.
13. No one would even pay any attention if the
Steven Wilson ,   Anchorage, Alaska   (03.27.10)
White Headed old grandpa would just shut up and go away. The only way this ever became a problem was when the Arab news media ran the story and tried to make it a problem. Most of these problems are made by xenophobic Muslim media outlets with the express intent of helping expel the Jews from the Middle East.
14. #4 Arn - a woman praying at the Kotel is right and proper.
Eric ,   Tel Aviv & New York   (03.27.10)
Arn you need to learn more about Jeudism Unlike Islam where a woman is not supposed to pray, Jews allow and encourage women to pray. In fact they have a special dispensation not to be REQUIRED to do the same things men do as they need to take care of the family. This dispensation is not a prohibition but special consideration for them. So a woman praying at the Kotel is right and proper.
15. He is twisted
Lioness ,   Israel   (03.27.10)
Has not learnt yet that the capital of Palestine is Amman. Jordan is Palestine it occupies 78% of the mandate with 77% of its people being Palestinian. Jordan IS Palestine. Jerusalem was never the capital of a people that never exiested until after 1967. They have invented the big lie.
16. Jewification vs Gazification
Cynthia ,   US   (03.27.10)
The Jews will build on their own land and make way for natural growth. The homes will likely be beautiful, functional and compatible with the Jerusalem landscape. Jobs will be created by the construction and business endeavors created by new residents. When Jews left Gaza in 2005 to make way for the fake peace and to disengage from the Palestinians, the Gazans refused the lovely Jewish homes. They rampaged through and burned down every sign of the Jewish community. In place of the lovely homes and thriving labor market that benefited the Palestinians, came block housing, 65% unemployment, poverty and a million dollar mausoleum for the dead Arafat. Abbas can be part of the future or he can retire to Jordan and let someone with a sincere Palestinian vision take control.
17. Jerusalem's rightful inhabitants
graczek ,   Maryland, USA   (03.27.10)
The presence of Jews in Jerusalem violates international law that goes back to the second century AD with their final expulsion from the Holy Land by the Roman Empire and Roman law that forbade their return. This expulsion was a temporal manifestation of the Divine Will. It is true that some slowly infiltrated the Holy City over the centuries, but as such they have the legal status of squatters. Today, legally, Jerusalem is an international zone, ultimately to be governed and inhabited by Muslims and Christians. Jews must leave the Holy City and eventually the Holy Land because their presence is a casus belli for Muslims and an affront to mainstream Christians worldwide.
18. Abbas
debbe ,   israel   (03.27.10)
TO ABBAS, You stupid nitwit: You should be so lucky that Jerusalem will continue to be "jewified" as you put it. Then you will have lovely architecture, freedom for those of every religion to visit their holy sites, no holy sites will be destroyed as the Muslems do, world class hospitals, shopping malls, businesses..... I could go on and on. I don't think any of us (or any of you) would like to see this vibrant, holy, beautiful city "Islamfied" and made into the muslem shithole you have all made in Gaza.
19. Abbas wants to steal Jerusalem
Brod ,   USA   (03.27.10)
Israel should tell the scoundrel to go to Hell.
20. abbas
miguel   (03.28.10)
One misconception of US and even labour and kadima is that abbas is moderate interested inpeace. True, personally he abhors violence but his goal is to eliminate israel in stages. He spouts lies and interferes withthe palestinian economic miracle which could happen if it was led by a strongman with good economic policy. Bibi has to loosten the ties with obama and move israel away, dig in.Do not entrust obama with US security as he is unwilling to post US troops on the west bank, so the story is over.
21. Ban has finally done it. The UN wants to carve up Jerusalem
Harry Wright ,   UK   (03.28.10)
He said at the Arab League Summit that "Jerusalem's significance should be respected and the city "should emerge from negotiations as the capital of two states". The BBC's Rana Jawad, in Tripoli, says this is the first time the UN has specified what it would like to result from the talks about Jerusalem." Obama wants that too. Ban's statement should be challenged. Israel must stand firm.
22. 17# So you are saying the Pope should..
Steven Wilson ,   Anchorage, Alaska   (03.28.10)
kick the Jews and Muslims out of Jerusalem! I mean....what do the Muslims have to do with the Romans expelling the Jews. If we are going to rely on Italy and it's empire to settle this dispute........then the Muslims must hit the road also. How much crack cocaine did you smoke before the idea of the Jews being the only ones to hit the road, occurred in your thought processes anyways? Your feeling some squirming feeling because of Jews in Jerusalem????You probably need some Preparation H. It provides relief for rectal pain and inflammation. Talk to the Italians.....they would know. Hitler and Mussolini used a lot of it during WWII after they tried another Roman extermination of the Jews. They call it a butt whipping experience.
23. Jerusalem, CHAI
ik ,   USA   (03.28.10)
Hey, Abbas. Jerusalem IS Israel!!! It always was. It will always be. Just ask Abdulah, who lost his occupation of Jerasulem in a war he started.

The Jews will NEVER lose Their land again. God's law does not bow to international law!!! This was all fore-told.. Everything that is happening is going to happen. But do not be a fool. The land belongs to God's chosen people and they will keep it!!
