1. :: Today’s Special Offer!
Matty Groves ,   Fairport   (06.20.10)
For today only – 30% OFF Collective Punishment!! "This decision proves to the world that the State of Israel has nothing against the civilian population in Gaza which has been collectively punished without remorse for 4 long years and that our only goal is to ensure the security of Israel by preventing such weapons of terror as Nutmeg, Children’s Toys and Newspapers from falling into the hands of terrorists", Ben-Eliezer stated.
2. Yoel Hasson (Kadima) is right! And yet....
Steve   (06.20.10)
Hasson said: "Now it is official. Netanyahu is prone to pressure and is a weak prime minister who pays heavy prices for his lack of policy. Netanyahu is sending a dangerous message that terrorism pays off," said Hasson. Amen. What I wonder is this. Why is Hasson in this traitorous party, Kadima? Why isn't Hasson in National Union or some respectable party? Why is Hasson in the party which is responsible for the mass-expulsion of Jews from Gaza and northern Samaria? Why is he a member of the perfidious party of surrender and retreat?

4. Histroy is repeating itself......

but not for the so called leaders of Israel, namely Barak and Netanyahu.
5. Hasson + Kadima last ones to talk.

6. Why?
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (06.20.10)
Tie easing of the blockade to the repatriation of Gilad Shalit. Israel's generosity will not be met with tamped-down violence from Hamas. All that will be achieved is that Hamas will grow ever bolder. Hamas expresses a desire to launch missiles into Israel from the West Bank, and we reward their aggression and belligerence by sending more goods into Gaza? What are we thinking of?
7. lol... For the price of 9 brave Turkish men.. the whole
RJBH ,   Methil   (06.21.10)
policy of the Gaza seige .. is being reviewed...or is there another reason? Have Zionist suddently felt compassion towards Palestinians of Gaza... lol, I dont think so. Is Israel afraid that they have pushed Turkey towards Iran... perhaps.. but what is clear.. the US has no influence on it.. but Turkey and its new allies have. I suggest you double the rewards of your.. "Commandos" they have brought about a change that was really way beyond their capabilities.

I would not be celebrating yet, if I were you. The siege is not going to disappear. The 'easing' is mostly intended to show that the siege is not aimed at civilians or collective punishment, and it never was. As everyone says, including the policymakers in Israel, as well as the UN and Hamas, there won't be a significant change for the population in Gaza. So at all the people who are concerned that this easing might send the wrong message, especially to Hamas or the flotilla organizers (not much of a difference, really), I would not worry as much. Hamas will have to downplay the whole thing for else they will reveal that there is no crisis in Gaza. At the same time, the rest of the world will be reminded that the blockade is not aimed at harming civilians. Sure, there will be people (there ARE people) who will use the situation to make Israel look bad, like MK Zoabi, but such propaganda will not change anything. Only people who already hate Israel will buy it. I'm not saying that the world opinion will change, but this is a good move. It weakens the position of both the Hamas and flotilla organizers, for it shows that there is no humanitarian issues in Gaza. There is a risk that people will look at Israel in a bad way, like #7 here, but he would think that no matter what the outcome. Reasonable people, on the other hand, will realize that Israel is not a 'terrorist' state or an 'apartheid.'
9. Sincerely, Don't you think that all Israeli Leftists politic
Sincerely, Don't you think that all Israeli Leftists politicians, USA, UN, EU, Europeans - "PEACE" failed attempts, and other interventions MADE murderous Arab willing possibile with means... - include: bring Yasser Arafat bring PLO and other Arab terrorists GIVE GUNS GIVE money and SUPPORT backup on every Arab terrorists actions in Israel ... MADE a murderous Arab willing possibile with means... COUNT WHAT AND HOW MANY terrorists actions before the Oslo agreement and AFTER. SHAME ON THEM ALL - THEIR HANDS cast blood of innocent civilians of Israel in busses, cafes, markets,etc.
10. No additional concessions
Ron B. ,   Lod   (06.21.10)
Israel cannot survive by accommodating a lynch mob. Only by having the courage to defy it. When the international community at the behest of the Muslim lynch mob dictates the parameters of Israel's survival, it must expand those parameters by pushing through them to the other side. If they want to recognize terrorists, then we kill those terrorists. If they want to break the Gaza blockade, THEN WE RETAKE GAZA. If they want to unilaterally create a Palestinian state, then we annex those territories. Accommodation is a noose. Defiance is the air of freedom. Every time Israel retreats, it is condemned for it. When it advances, it is condemned for it also, but its freedom of action expands. More at :
