1. Spies for Hizbollah should be hanged and not...

jailed until the next prisoner exchange. That is what the Lebanese, syrian, and Iranian do with those spying for Israel. If found guilty it is absurd to condemn him to life in prison, a condemn that he will not run to its end. This is a bad message for those collaborating with terrorists.
2. Always playing the victim card.
Terry ,   Eilat - Israel   (06.13.10)
He doesn't even have the courage to stand up for his miserable cause, at least you could respect him for something. They betray the country they live in, then whine about getting caught, always blaming, shifting responsibility, misrepresenting. Ich, such slimy creeps ....
3. Boots need to be kept on Muslim necks.
Janice Cohen ,   ירושלים   (06.13.10)
Not only in this country, but indeed worldwide.
4. No, Arabs are not always suspected. Indeed, many do military
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (06.13.10)
service with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), while others serve in the various branches of Israel's police as equals to all other uniformed personnel. As one who has done much activity with the volunteer Civil Guard, I can testify that I served with Arabs whom I did not see as enemies but rather as fellow citizens eager to ensure the safety of Israel's citizens in the face of waves of terrorist attacks. Israel, it must be stated, is a society in which are all equal before the law, Arab and Jew alike. Breaking the law brings with it punishment, be the law breaker an Arab or a Jew. This concept, I realize, is unheard of in most countries of this region, but Israel, being a liberal democracy, is not like most countries in the region, to say the least...

9. give an enemy secret information & we are picking on you
zionist forever   (06.13.10)
When you use the information you have access to because your an MK and give it to enemies then there is good reason to consider you a security risk. When you take part on a flotilla then there is reason not to trust you. When you support the enemy and carry our acts that would be illegal to ordinary citizens but because your an MK you have Knesset immunity and can't be prosecuted then your a risk its only a legal loophole thats keeping you out of jail. We need to make citizenship dependent on loyalty that goes for jews & arabs. There are certain laws which will be considered so bad that it will cost you your citizenship no get out clauses like Knesset immunity. Why should we give citizenship and the privilages that come with it to people who are not willing to be loyal to the state. Come on Liberman you have been a breath of fresh air in this Knesset proposing things that have needed doing for decades but nobody from the mainstream parties has had the courage to propose. Propose something like this we need to weed out the traitors. We cannot tolerate treachery any longer.
10. Free Ameer Makhoul & Omar Said
Salma ,   Palestine   (06.13.10)
The repression of Palestinians in "Israel" is not new...In 2007, Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin introduced a new policy targeting the whole Palestinian community as a security risk !! Today Ameer Makhoul and Omar Said ,tomorrow they accuse everybody of 'collaboration' "Israel" will not fail to find charges to any one to reach the desired goal, it always wanted more land and fewer Arabs ,What it means is that "Israel" will more and more become an apartheid state.
11. #2 terry
it is people like you that are causing the state of israel to collapse ,slowly but surly , if the good jews do not get off of there butts soon and rebel against the cahanas and libermans ,and the terry's , israel's life will be short , because as we can all see , people that we called friends at one time or another , are begining to rebel against us ...
12. you shouldn'tsay typical jewish comment
its zionizim , and not all jews are zionists ...
13. Read what he said:
nadav ,   tlv   (06.13.10)
He said that the indictment against him is "a plot by an entire country, and we will fight it." That pretty much says it all- he and his Jihadist friends think they are at war against an entire country- Israel, and they will fight it. Not all Arab Israelis commit treasonous and seditious acts, but there are those who do and we must be ever vigilant!
14. Where is the reply to the specific charge against him?
Shalom Freedman ,   Jerusalem Israel   (06.13.10)
Israel is the only country in the world where public figures who openly work for its destruction consider this their 'democratic right'. Shame on us that treasonous acts by political figures are not treated more severely.
15. #10 please explain
Israel Israeli ,   Tel Aviv   (06.13.10)
According to you, Israel is already an apartheid state where Arabs are repressed. You also support establishing an Arab state that is ethnically pure and clean of Jews. Do you agree with Mr. Lieberman that all the Arabs who live in Israel should move to your new Arab state to avoid repression? And if apartheid is wrong, why do you support creating a new apartheid state?
16. # 3 keep it up but don't cry Antisemitism

17. arabs the eternal victims
ghostq   (06.13.10)
we don't buy the poor me lie, they basically will say so even when they r caught red handed.
18. #11 people you call friends
You mean like Hamas? art7: "Hamas is one of the links in the Chain of Jihad in the confrontation with the Zionist invasion...nevertheless, the Hamas has been looking forward to implement Allah’s promise whatever time it might take. The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!""
19. Security offenses
Xena   (06.13.10)
Makhoul says that the case against him is a ‘political plot’ and that ‘anything an Arab does in this country is considered a security offense by the Shin Bet’. Spying for an enemy country is very serious and the State of Israel is perfectly entitled to investigate any individual suspected of doing so. It is not true that everything an Arab does is considered a security offense – but undermining the security of the country you live in, is most definitely an offense and the worst betrayal possible.
20. #8 Judah, Golan Hts. ISRAEL
Terry ,   Eilat - Israel   (06.13.10)
Nice to see you're here too. And to #11 Anon. - When the missiles fall on our heads, there won't be any ''good Jews'' or ''bad Jews'' - only dead Jews.
21. #3 "Boots need to be kept on Muslim necks"
London man ,   London   (06.13.10)
Are those jackboots? It's amazing that people write messages here with zero awareness of the fact that they make the writers appear like raving fascist lunatics with an agenda of Islamophobia and unmitigated hatred towards Moslems. I think that the author of #3 is probably quoting from an SS handbook.
22. #15 PLZ, Don't put words in my mouth?
Salma ,   Palestine   (06.13.10)
First I never said I want Arab state that is ethnically pure and clean of Jews. 2. The Palestinians in "Israel" are not immigrants and did not come from abroad to live here So they will not go anywhere else, and will remain forever in what is today called Israel Don't justify your racist by illusions in your head
23. Cry me a river, Makhoul.
flyingdoc57 ,   Florida, U.S.A.   (06.13.10)
Every time an Arab/Muslim blows himself/herself up in a crowd of innocent civilians, the entire world chants "Islam is a peaceful, tolerant religion; Muslims are peaceful, tolerant people; and The Koran teaches peace". But every time IDF kills an Arab/Muslim terrorist, the entire world screams "MASSACRE, MASSACRE; Jews to the gas; and Get the hell out of Palestine". So don't give use that B.S. about how Arabs/Muslims are treated unfairly.
24. Interesting Psychology
Frankie Littlehammer ,   New Herstal, TX, US   (06.13.10)
What he knows deep in his heart is that in the Arab world, Jews always have been and always are suspect. The Koran says Jews are not to be trusted. So Mr. Makhoul knows his Arab audience will right away believe that the Jewish state has a similar medieval attitude. But it's sad that many people in the West are going to believe these totally false allegations.
25. Jehudah, # 4, these are exactly my thoughts.
Tom ,   Baltimore, MD USA   (06.13.10)
26. #22
Israel Israeli ,   Tel Aviv   (06.13.10)
Do you condemn Abbas and Fayyad who do call for ethnic cleansing of Jews from the new Arab state they want to make? What is the year from when a person is a native and not an immigrant? For instance, would you support repatriating Arabs who immigrated from Syria and Iraq in the years 1940-1948? And let's say you create a new Arab state. Why shouldn't Arabs living in Um El Fahem join the Jenin province instead of living under Israeli apartheid and oppression? Or did you maybe exaggerate when you said "apartheid" and "oppression"?
27. #12 just the smart ones...
Brian ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (06.13.10)
..and the true ones, not the cowards
