1. Freudian Projection
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (06.24.10)
Israel is blaming others for its own behavior.
2. Perez is supposed to represent all Israelis!
Ron B. ,   Lod   (06.24.10)
As long as President Shimon Peres – who is supposed to represent all Israelis -- organizes conferences that promote Palestinian sovereignty, and his Peres Center for Peace advocates Palestinian statehood, why shouldn't Palestinians proclaim sovereignty? After the horrible mistakes he commited as a result of his total lack of vision, Peres should keep away of politics and the Media. As to the legitimacy of the Oslo Accords ( 2 parts):
3. The terrorists who took over where state terrorists: Turks!!
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (06.24.10)
The European Union, NATO and the United States must all take a note of how their ally acts, and respond to it harshly!!!
4. :: Israel’s position on ‘peace’
Matty Groves ,   Fairport   (06.24.10)
"We (the Israelis) must define our position and lay down basic principles for a settlement. Our demands should be moderate and balanced, and appear to be reasonable. But in fact they must involve such conditions as to ensure that the enemy rejects them. Then we should manoeuvre and allow him to define his own position, and reject a settlement on the basis of a compromise solution. We should then publish his demands as embodying unreasonable extremism". - General Yehoshafat Harkabi, Ma'ariv, 2 November 1973.
5. they may or may not be carrying weapons but they are
JO   (06.24.10)
from enemy states with no good will towards Israel. That alone gives caution. those carrying woman should be met by female Israeli soldiers but all intercepted. They are not peace cruises. Just watch the words of said countries
6. Gaza First must be the approach in applying UN Security...
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (06.24.10)
...Council Resolution 242, as is, in resolving the Arab Israeli conflict. 242 has been accepted by all relevant parties as the basis for peacemaking. 242 has been the basis for all talks and actual agreements so far. Now it is time to resolve the Gaza predicament by expecting the country that was behind the initiation of the June 1967 war, Egypt, to shoulder its responsibility and assume control over the territory of Gaza it lost to Israel in that war. Note, Israel fulfilled its responsibility with regard to Gaza the moment its armed forces vacated the territory between the years 1994 and 2005 to secure and recognized boundaries. It is Egypt's duty now - with Arab and international assistance if necessary - for the Egyptians to take control over the place and absorb it into Egypt.
7. Europe and the West support Jewish+Pal states.
Sam ,   Canada   (06.24.10)
The bottom line is that Europe and the West support Jewish and Palestinian states. For all their propaganda, the Palestinians can't hide their demand for a massive return of refugees into Israel proper. They can't BS their way around it and on this their attempt to put an end to Israel diplomatically fails The Western leaders in their fear of terrorism are eager for Israel to make concessions not to commit suicide.
8. Perez, Perez, who's that?
Edithann ,   USA   (06.24.10)
Who pays attention to Perez? He's someone Israel keeps on the road to make meaningless speeches..and keep Israels name in the media... He should be home waiting for his redeemer... TATA
9. :: Eitan - #6
Matty Groves ,   Fairport   (06.24.10)
You keep harping on about selective elements of Res 242, in reality the world as moved on. As Rabin once said: "We must think differently, look at things in a different way. Peace requires a world of new concepts, new definitions". Isn’t it time you moved on and stopped living in the past.
10. I actually agree with Jehudah's call to apply 242
Jeff ,   Ottawa, Canada   (06.24.10)
in the way it was designed to the Gaza Strip. Only those who want to perpetuate the conflict until Israel is no more refuse to implement this U.N. Security Council resolution.
11. paranoia
mack ,   antarctica   (06.27.10)
there were no arms missiles or bombs on that flotilla. Peres is a liar and a paranoid scoundrel throwing out bullshit like this. What a putz. Israel has been getting exactly what it asks for. Israel has pushed people around for 45 years (with a lot of help); when you do that, don't be surprised if they bite back with a vengeance.
