1. Videos prove she is lying.
Eyal ,   Jerusalem   (06.01.10)
The videos clearly show men armed with clubs and knives attacking the soldiers even before they reached the deck from the ropes....they were ambushed and brutally attacked upon arrival. I wish these Arab MK's could just stop lying for once. Maybe Israel shouldn't have stopped the flotilla, or handled it differently, but there is no doubt that the soldiers acted in self-defense and that the activists on board had intent to murder.
2. yours would have been fine also
JL ,   israel   (06.01.10)
3. She's a shrill liar
Linichka ,   Gdynia, Poland   (06.01.10)
who shouldn't be at large already. Some down time in the slammer might benefit her.
4. The situation is not black or white.
Bar ,   Unknown   (06.01.10)
I hope soon enough the facts from both the people on the ship and facts from Israeli government will be clear. I am shocked to see only two different opinions: Either: ''Those were not peaceactivists but terrorists paid by Hamas.'' Or: ''Israel is a terror state and killed on purpose''. Come on these are two extreme opinions, the situation cannot be plain black or white like that.
5. How dare you claim to know what ISRAEL wanted
Sara ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (06.01.10)
As an Israeli, I can tell you that I prayed for the safety of those on board the flotilla. I said a deliberate prayer on Saturday night, as I saw the "climax" of this ordeal coming nearer. I prayed that they wouldn't be harmed. That it would all end peacefully, with the activists agreeing to a search of their humanitarian aid, and the safe delivery of it to the Gazan people.
6. "There was not a single passenger who raised a club"!
Ehoop ,   UK   (06.01.10)
7. Hanin has not discovered the technology of video yet
Max   (06.01.10)
Preferring to live in her own poopy, she talks and talks rubbish but the videos tell the truth...
8. Why is she still an MK?????
EST ,   Miami USA   (06.01.10)
Israel needs a law to deal with those associating themselves with people who call for the destruction of the state of Israel!!!
9. stupidity
Dina ,   UK   (06.01.10)
How stupid is this woman? We have all seen the pictures and the tapes from both sides. No clubs? No violence? You can say what you want but you cannot argue with pictures. And you should stop spitting into the well that you are drinking from. Do your job as you should from the inside.
10. It was .....
Poitcha ,   Israel   (06.01.10)
your Arab/Muslim brothers that wanted the highest casualties. Why don't you go get yourself elected to the Hamas terrorist govt. in Gaza..... your hatred and constant provocations towards the State of Israel would go down well there. Oh, you prefer to sit on our government as you can dress and behave in a democratic fashion and be free to say whatever you wish. In Gaza, you would be covered head to toe and have your words counted. Get a life !!
11. Why was this woman set free?
Brian ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (06.01.10)
Why is she a paid member of our government? We isn't she in jail awaiting trial for treason? WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY?!?!?!?!?!?
12. "Our goal was to break the siege. We had no plans for a conf
Brian ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (06.01.10)
How can you possibly break a Naval blockade without confrontation? The whole plan was confrontation and provocation. WHY IS THIS WOMAN FREE? WHY IS SHE A MEMBER OF OUR GOVERNMENT!??!?!?!? WHY IS SHE NOT BEING TRIED FOR TREASON, IMPRISONED FOR LIFE? DEPORTED? OR AT THE VERY LEAST REMOVED FROM HER POSITION AS AN MK AT THE VERY LEAST!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? WTF!?!?!?!?!?!?!??
13. How can she lie so blatantly?
Uri ,   Israel   (06.01.10)
The facts can been seen on every news channel in every country. Open youtube and see the videos. It can't be faked and you can't ignore it. The videos clearly show them with sticks, knives, chairs, sling shots and other weapons. You are just continuing the great big lie I'm ashamed that you are a member of Knesset!
14. Put her on trial
Carsten Schmidt ,   Germany   (06.01.10)
Lift the immunity of this liar and put her on trial for supporting a terrorist organisation. That is what every other country would do in such a case.
15. P
16. She is a traetor and must be punished.
17. Remove her Israeli citizenship!
Mina ,   Haifa, Israel   (06.01.10)
How far can she lie? This is a call to every truth & justice seeking person. Evidence clearly shows that what really happened on that ship is that those false "Peace Activists" ambushed & brutally lynched young, unarmed Israeli soldiers. Those soldiers initially came with no intentions to hurt & to only negotiate with what they thought were "Humanitarians". Yet many of those false "Peace Activists" turned out to be a well equipped, brutal lynching mob, on which that tragic, unexpected development is to be blamed. They started lynching those soldiers as soon as they arived, with long knieves, axes, iron rods, bats etc There were dozens of "Peace Activists" lynching each one soldier. Please also start controlling those radicals in Israel who spread lies & then get followed by people who do not care about truth & justice. Where were those activists when Israelis civilians suffered from over 8,000 rockets launched at them by Hamas & Co., in the few years AFTER Israel withdrew from Gaza? Could it be that the losses of Jewish/Israelis lives was not worth protesting about? As far as MK Zoabi, she belongs to the enemies within Israel. Israel wake up & start acting! Take away their citizenships & send them o Gaza, where enemies like her belong.
18. There were no clubs or anything of the sort.
Alan ,   SA   (06.01.10)
No! The Turkish fighters were trying to scare away a swarm of bees with their clubs according to the videos I saw
19. @ Sara from Tel Aviv
Isabella ,   The Netherlands   (06.01.10)
Dear Sara, I just wanted to thank you for your lovely comment. I hope to see more comments like this in the future. Shalom
20. we keep feeding parasits like you..........
joe ,   kfar saba israel   (06.01.10)
its a pity MK Zoabi that any bullet did not hit you at the cruise raid otherwise we tthe taxpayers will have to keep spending from our pockets to keep u alive u should be proud that israel is a democratic country which allows u to have a place at the knesset at our expenses !!!why do not u go to live to gaza go but go now and support ur hamastan but stay threre for good !!all the arab mks should be expeled from our parliament
JOE ,   KFAR SABA ISAREL   (06.01.10)
DAVID ,   JUDEA   (06.01.10)
If they wanted the highest number of fatalities, they could have used one torpedo to do the job. Looking in hinsight that would have been the best deterrence and a simple and fast solution, to stop this provocation. Nice to know that we as Israeli tax payers support this kind of thugs in our knesset and on top of that they get free publicity through our dear friends and Zion lovers at Ynet. All this Hedonistic nonsense will stop when the scuds start falling on their favorite coffeeshops on Dizengoff and surroundings.
23. why isn't she under arrest? she should be in bersheva with
Randi ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (06.01.10)
the rest of the terrorists!
24. largest number of fatalities
s. boy ,   EU   (06.01.10)
How do I produce fatalities? I call the BlackWater mercenaries. What a joke she is.
25. Dear Miss Zoabi
Aurelija ,   Jerusalem   (06.01.10)
Weapons in cargo & hymns like "kill the Jews" which "activists" were singing three days ago (as seen on Al Jazeera) show that your statement "the flotilla's participants did not have any violent intentions" - is a falacy. But I didn't expect to hear anything more than lies from you, anyways.
26. kol al- ihtiram to Hanin Zoabi,
Salma ,   Palestine   (06.01.10)
she deserves to be the speaker of "Israel's" Knesset ,who knows?! Maybe someday She'll be
27. Lost my patience
andre lajst ,   tel aviv   (06.01.10)
Im totally out of my mind with those Arab MK that they porpose its to criticizes Israel and its action. If you are NOT HAPPY, LEAVE THE COUNTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
28. #12 Brian of Tel Aviv
Chris Linthwaite   (06.01.10)
Their goal was to break the siege of Gaza. Well I guess the opening of the Rafah Crossing by Hosni Mubarak until further notice with the full support of The European Union and Russia pretty much means they have succeeded. No hard feelings.
29. Expel MK Zoabi from Israel
Alexander ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (06.01.10)
We Israelis will not pay tax money to a fifth column, traitor, Arab and an anti-Semite.
30. She is a Knesset Member
Michaela Barkai ,   Bat Yam   (06.01.10)
She was elected by Israeli citizens who feel that she represents them. They are the only ones who can exclude her from the next Knesset, if dissatisfied with what seh says and does. There are in the Knesset (and also in the cabinet) radical Jewish nationalists. They have the right to be elected, and so do radical Arab nationalsits. If you want to exclude all nationalists from the Knesset, there will be very few Members left.
