31. What about the border with Egypt ?
David ,   Israel   (07.18.10)
Let their islamic brothers manage gaza.
32. How did the EU pick somebody as stupid as Ashton?
Brian Cohen ,   Judean PeoplesFront   (07.18.10)
Ok, so maybe she's not stupid, since it obviously takes a lot of brains and ability to get to her position. So why does she say such stupid things? Duh? If Catherine Ashton is the "EU Foreign Policy Chief", then it's clear that Europe's days are numbered. There is not a snowball's chance in hell that Europe will not be Islamified in another 100 years. Here is a supposedly "smart" and "educated" and "informed" person who appears to be totally ignoring the reality that Gaza is controlled by extremist Islamic radicals financed by Iran. It's not that Ashton has nothing to say about Hamas's policy of "never" making peace, but wow, lady, are you that much out to lunch that you are totally ignoring Hamas violence and war crimes? The scary answer appears to be yes. Ashton is being an active ignoramus, sticking her head deep into the ground to make sure she doesn't have to say anything more than "addressing the legitimate security concerns of Israel." What a totally incompetent diplomatic boob this woman is! Hey Ashton - if any of your EU underlings are reading these talkbacks, here's what Goldstone had to say: "... the [Goldstone] report contains the clearest finding that Hamas and other militant Palestinian groups committed serious war crimes and possibly crimes against humanity. The acceptance of those findings by the Human Rights Council and the General Assembly has been ignored completely..." Richard Goldstone, Interviewed by Ha'aretz, Nov 13 2009 Yup. Ignored by the EU too.
33. Unbelievable
Matthias ,   Munich, Germany   (07.18.10)
unbelievable stupid. She, and the most of the EU are so dangerous mad! What will come next? Urge Israel to thank for Quasams? Blame Israel for have an army?
34. @#13 - force Palestine on Palestinians first...
Bat Zion ,   Centre, Israel   (07.18.10)
We begged, we threatened, we wept - but we just can't make them declare the Palestinian state. Can you make them?
35. Don"t stand for their bleeding hearts,or ours will bleed
Roland Seener ,   London England   (07.18.10)
36. We'll do it immediately...
Michael Steiner ,   Bahrain   (07.18.10)
...just as soon as the E.U., including Ashton's own Britain, does the same. No visas for all those Belarussians, Moldovans, Moroccans, Ukranians, Afghans and others trying to sneak into the E.U. You do that, "baroness" Ashton, and Israel will throw open its borders as well. Deal? Didn't think so. Dumb Eurotrash.
37. Open EU borders for all EU citizens
S.   (07.18.10)
And let all Bulgarians, Polish and Romanians work in western Europe without much trouble. Or why only them? Open the whole EU and let whoever you want come inside, with whatever drugs and weapons they carry with them. Do not check. Open all borders completely! Oh... wait.
38. She never mentioned Shalit.
leoblue ,   NYC   (07.18.10)
Nowhere in her comments is a word about Shalit. What planet is she from?
39. Open Europe crossing to al-Qaeda, then and only then
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (07.18.10)
will Israel open the crossing to Hamastan. You know, the very first of all human rights is the right to live, and we, Jews, despite your views of us, also have this right...!!
40. it's not the Franco-Belgian border !
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (07.18.10)
or any other in the EU . It's between Israel and a "state" that wants Israel's elimination .
41. Poor Liberman!
Salma ,   Palestine   (07.18.10)
It seems that Mrs. Ashton did not hear about Mr. Lieberman's new plan for Gaza, or maybe she's not interested in the thinking, of the "genius " foreign minister, this is probably the correct analysis :)
42. Nosy, Nosy EU- your nose will get pinched
Humback ,   Il   (07.18.10)
EU shall mind their own business -why do they mind so much that little by little and big by big palestinian terrorists occupy all of our country! The humpback doesnt see his own hump- lets start deciding about opening bounderies that the same "honorable" EU has closed and let them take all these palestinian terrorists to their own homes
43. The border will be opened again....
Ezra ,   san diego   (07.18.10)
the bombs will come, people will die and the border will be closed again. ANNEX Gaza Now!
44. Gazans must be able to lead 'normal lives......
tiki ,   belgium   (07.18.10)
The 'Gazan's (arabs living in Gaza) will live 'normal lives when they will 'behave like normal people, meaning.......'changing their terrorist , destructive, lying, suicidal, child abusive (using child bombers, poisening their minds and future), women abusive mindset' (sorry if I forgot a few 'blessings), to a 'tolerant, truth telling, productive, working bunch of people. Seems like 'mission impossible, and the 'BARONESS ASHTON should START with that message, instead all the BS she is uttering. On the other hand WHO CARES what this 'totally insignificant women has to say. Nobody listenes to a word she has to say, in fact, nobody knows who she is!
45. Iranian double agent
cocoloco ,   Australia   (07.18.10)
I wishh the Iranian Scientist was indeed a double agent who tricked the smart Yankes!
46. Do you think you're a walking bomb
to 44 tiki ,   World   (07.18.10)
tiki- you are nothing but a poor noisy clock who needs sourly to be taken care of
47. sotrry I wa misled by yr name and Belgian origin
to 44 tiki ,   World   (07.18.10)
48. to 46/47......WORLD
tiki ,   belgium   (07.18.10)
I'm sorry that you're 'misled' by my European background (there are still people who think this way, even in Europe) and by the way, where did you find this 'expression about the 'noisy clock which needs sourly to be taken care of''. It's a very funny remark, but not very 'educational, and not very European. (It's the 'level I was talking about in my 'noisy clock comment).
49. Catherine Ashton
Albrecht Klein ,   Germany   (07.18.10)
A totalitarian EU regime tells other countries what to do. Weird.
50. to Tiki 48
World? ,   World   (07.18.10)
Not everybody in the world is European - but you and me and all around have seen the Belgium actions towards Israel. About the noise- well that was due to your suggestive tiki name - shall you be successful
51. 50 , what kind of actions ?
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (07.18.10)
do you refer to ?
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne,   (07.18.10)
Well,here you have it.The undiluted anti-Israel,pro-Arab face of New Labour that placed Ashton in her present position.She's Tony Blair to her core. The blessing is that she's the last remnant of Britain's New Labour disaster and likely to be replaced as soon as she gets on everyone's nerves. Any way,there's no point in just sitting muttering about her.This is her email address: If you think that she's a jumped-up trouble maker,like I do,TELL HER.
53. *52 Ian - thanks for the email addy.
Lee ,   Manchester UK   (07.18.10)
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne,   (07.18.10)
Lee,you're welcome. Use it and enjoy,enjoy. Call the hangers-on that WE have to pay for to account. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
55. #32 Brian Cohen;NO BRAINS NECESSARY
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne,   (07.18.10)
Brian Cohen doesn't know much about advancement in previous(HOORAY!) New Labour Britain. To get on,all you had to do was join the New Labour faction of the Labour Party,get involved in local politics to get noticed,be appointed to a few quangos,say what's expected and before you know it,you're a star.No brains,no great education necessary and probably not wanted., Ashton was New Labour's place-woman into the EU Commission and her stance on Gaza is just the authentic voice of New Labour;anti-Israel terrorist apologists with their eyes on the personal advantages of pleasing Arab tyrants. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
56. Silly woman
NorthLight ,   North   (07.18.10)
Let her first open the borders of the EU. People in Moldova, Marocco and Turkey will thank her. Typical hypocritical EU crap. They protect their borders against refugees from hunger, poverty, war and disease -- but tell us to open the borders to terrorists. And the most amazing thing: not the slightest feeling of shame. For Europeans, we are the lowest rang on the totem pole. No matter what crimes they commit, they always feel morally superior to us. Why? They never seem to ask themselves that question.
57. VII rockets were smarter
exo darwin ,   London   (07.19.10)
Interestingly V-2 rockets of WWII vintage were infinietely more advanced and lethal than the 'my first rocket' ordnance generaly dispatched in the direction of Israel from the tiny minority of barely armed oposition in Gaza. Whilst one fully accepts that a single firecracker would be sufficent justification for killing off another thousand Gaza civilians, I find your comments regarding attacks on London by the might of the German military wholy stupid.
