1. Zbig Brezinsky allowed Mullahs to overthrow Shah 30 yrs ago.
Alan ,   SA   (04.11.10)
Did overthrowing the Shah help world peace?Now Brezinsky is back to try and overthrow Jewish State with his Carterite-Antisemite friends.
2. Arabs see it too close to get their land back
observer   (04.11.10)
INDIRECT deterrence tactics don't work anymore; save your effort, stop being naive.
3. Sadly, as if nothing has been learned, Netanjahu is right,
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (04.11.10)
the world continues to demonize and de-legitimize the national home of the singled out people, of the Jewish people, by way of psychologically preparing the justification of the extermination of the nearly six million Jews of Israel by Iran and their right hand men. It seems history is returning in slow motion...
4. #2 observer
Albrecht Klein ,   Germany   (04.11.10)
When existed a Arab state or nation called "Palestine" in the Middle East?
MAHMOOD ,   LONDO-UK   (04.11.10)
Anyone and you know it well.In fact,you carry out your atrocities and the world has remained silent.
6. to Klein #4
observer   (04.11.10)
The native dwellers of Palestine were called “Palestinians” by Herodotes in 5th century BC, 2500 years before (modern) Israeli statehood; but Herodotes never heard of Jews, though he walked across the whole land. Jews appeared three hundred years later.

Jacob ,   UK   (04.11.10)
By 'indirect deterrence' you mean the Arabs are cowards and instead should use more 'direct tactics' like going after Israeli civilians because they are Jews and easy targets? You apologists make me sick, defending an illegitimate cause which has no historical connection to a land going back even a hundred years and furthermore you defend the absolute barbaric and cowardly acts of suicide bombers, making them out to be hero's in sickening romantic way. Such is the way of the deluded left, what happened to morals? Where did all this human rights nonsense come from? Oh yeah, it came from the leftists. Talking about human rights what about the rights of Israelis to live in peace for the first time in two thousand years of persecution?
8. #6 observer
Albrecht Klein ,   Germany   (04.11.10)
And Jesus of Nazareth was a Muslim.
9. Bibi, put a sock in it, Iran has not threatened Israel...
Michael Hess ,   Charlotte, NC   (04.11.10)
...the only country the world hears violent threats from on a daily basis is Israel. Iran has never threatened the state of Israel, stop making things up. That is why no one believes you.
10. Alan, try the CIA in 1956, NOT the Carter years...
Michael Hess ,   Charlotte, NC   (04.11.10)
...why bother to perpetuate a lie when five minutes of research shows you to be so wrong?
11. Correcting Observer 6
Stephen in New York ,   New York   (04.11.10)
Herodotes refers to Philistines, not Palestinians. Are you saying that the current Arab inhbitans west of the Jordan River are descendents of the Philistines? And, BTW, the Jews arrived in the land west of the Jordan around 1200 BC which is 3150 years before modern Israeli statehood.
12. Jehudah, the world is doing no such thing, it's in your head
Michael Hess ,   Charlotte, NC   (04.11.10) will not find a single country in the world that wishes to do Israel harm. Here's the deal, If you want peace, actually move back within Israel the 500,000 illegal squatters and then you will have peace. No one is upset that there is an Israel. Israel has the right to exist, no one disputes this, not even Iran. However , nearly everyone is upset that Israel believes it can break international law with impunity and steal land and resources from the Arab Palestinians. And now Israel's law breaking behavior is endangering American troops and interest in the region. That simply won't be allowed.
13. Israel do not be afarid - your guardian never sleeps !
Jaacov Baumann   (04.11.10)
The people of Israel will exist eternally - read the scriptures ! But those fighting against Israel will all vanish......
14. #5 - Iran began its threats in 1979
William ,   Israel   (04.11.10)
and hasn't stopped since. Till this day, they threat Sunnis next door, they threaten people who embrace the West, they punish strongly those in their population who resist the claim that Mullahs are next to Allah.... they threaten Israel publicly and fund terror proxies to the tune of billions of $$$$ for years. Iran has killed more of its own people in the past 31 years than were killed in the entire Israeli-Arab conflict, on both sides! Israel targets a bomb maker and you cry "war crime!!", Iran hangs people for being gay and calling for reform and you are silent. Who promotes the real atrocities in this world?
15. #9 - "that's why no one believes you"
William ,   Israel   (04.11.10)
On the contrary, polls conducted over the past 3 years of the American public show the majority of US citizens DO believe in the threats against Israel, do believe Iran in a threat to world peace and are trying to get nuclear weapons, and do believe Cast Lead was a DEFENSIVE action. This didn't come from FoxNews, by the way, so try to find another way to explain the facts except "white, racist gun-totting, Palin-loving GOP". That might be hard for you.
16. #12 - "If you want peace, move back settlers"
William ,   Israel   (04.11.10)
Um, wouldn't that mean that before 1968 we would have had peace? Didn't have it then. Would't that mean that moving settlers out of Gaza (even though Gush Katif IS Jewish land) we would have seen peace? Didn't have it then, either. You're full of crap, as always.
17. #11 - Philistines are of Greek lineage, "Pals" are Arabs
William ,   Israel   (04.11.10)
Not sure why "Palestinians" would keep pushing this narrative. DNA research back in the 1980s already proved this link was false. But then again, "Palestinians" are even a real people and are mastering the art of intellectual dishonesty, while ignoring that they are mostly illegal economic migrants. It wouldn't be so bad if many in the academic world weren't so eager to take them at their word.
18. Michael from Carolina
mm ,   Israel   (04.11.10)
Dear Redneck, you are oviously reading your history from books written by ignorant people - try an encyclopedia - one written by a true historian
19. Jews are not mentioned in the Torah of Moses
observer   (04.11.10)
in 800 B.C., a princedom called Israel came to existence, and it had no relation to the ‘Jews’ who appeared a millennium later. ‘Jews’ are not even mentioned in the Torah of Moses, only in the very late books of Esther and Ezra.
20. # 9
Birdi ,   Israel   (04.11.10)
Stop the denial will you. Simply google "Iran threatens Israel" & see how many links there are where it is written that IRAN THREATENS ISRAEL. Bibi has the right to give as many speeches as he likes just like your beloved Obama has the right.
21. #19 Observer
mm ,   Israel   (04.12.10)
You are dilusional
22. WELL TRIED WILLIAM............#14
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (04.12.10)
Either you don't read or else you are not prepared to do so.Your statistics are part of rhetoric generated for a specific reason.You very well know the reason.I do not want to eleborate but my sincere request is for you not to participate in these inhumane crime that your leaders have unleashed and become a party to this sinful act.
23. #6 observer, can you read?
Faruq ,   Ireland   (04.12.10)
1. Mr Klein asked when an arab nation called 'palestine' existed in the middle east, Herodotes referred to a region as palestine - it was not comprised of arabs, and it this greek term came much later than the unanimously agreed upon existence of the Kingdom of Israel. 2. Herodotes did refer to the Jews. Jew is quite a modern term. observer, instead of relying on pseudoscholarship why don't you discard your racist ideologies and face the fact that this land belongs to the people of Israel, Jews..
24. @10: 5 minutes of research Mr Hess
According to Richard Cottam, a former CIA official who advised the Carter administration at the time, after the fall of the Shah of Iran in 1978, Brzezinski favored a “de facto alliance with the forces of Islamic resurgence, and with the Republic of Iran.” [Dreyfuss, 2005, pp. 241, 251 - 256] Yet, at the height of Iran’s prosperity, the Shah suddenly became the target of an ignoble campaign led by U.S. and British foreign policy makers. Bolstered by slander in the Western press, these forces, along with Soviet-inspired communist insurgents, and mullahs opposing the Shah’s progressiveness, combined to face him with overwhelming opposition. In three years he went from vibrant monarch to exile (on January 16, 1979), and ultimately death, while Iran fell to Ayatollah Khomeini’s terror.
25. observer, go publish your lies in Arab web sites
ronen ,   USA   (04.12.10)
26. Michael Hess, go peddile your lies somewhere else.
rubi   (04.12.10)
27. #22 - speaking of facts - are you going to present any?
William ,   Israel   (04.12.10)
Seems your the one spouting the propaganda narrative and agenda-based rhetoric. Exactly what atrocities are you referring to? Are they based in fact or through your local Arab-media source? I tend to listen to the real people of Iran - the Persians - and hear them crying for reform and freedom and the countless acts of abuse at the hands of the Islamists there. One simple case in point - lots and lots of abuse and rapes in Iranian prisons, but not one incident in an Israeli prison and that was testified by "Palestinian" women protesting the Turkish propaganda tv shows. I await your proof - which you seem to be lacking lately.
28. #19 Go and learn.
The 11th Man ,   London.   (04.12.10)
The term 'Jew' only came about after the division of the Kingdom of Israel into the Northern Kingdom of Israel and the Southern Kingdom of Judah. The people of this Southern Kingdom were called 'Jews'. Circa 900BCE, I believe. As the Torah was written 500 years or so before the division it is no surprise that the term 'Jew' is not found. Even I can understand that.
29. This thread is full of Iranian posters set to post here on

You are good at sound bites. work out at the gym and take martial arts to strengthen yourself. Obama is a kalidi arab supporter so everything he does energizes the arab cause.Ironically it was arabs who were very racist towards african blacks, not jews. All haredi have to do idf service. Every jewish israel should be armed. Israel has to make alternate supplies of everything for the day that israel and US diverge and stop worrying about it. US needs israel as much as the other way around. Clinton and gates are weak politicians. Israel has to say no to jones and brzezinski period. Now for Olmert, the connections are too close. Police are very likely to arrest olmert as he disembarks the plane in tel aviv and with him, haaretz hopes will be crushed. Olmert has caused lots of trouble with his nazi appeasement offer to abbas and his use of islamic jihad erdogan as a conduit. Israeli justice promises hell for olmert down the road.
