1. Yeah yeah, we know.....
J K ,   NYC, USA   (09.02.10)
We need to show restraint for peace. Fine, leave Abbas' 'West Bank' alone and start pounding Gaza. Or Damascus.
2. It's Time To Teach Hamas Another Lesson
Bill Foonman ,   Jacksonville USA   (09.02.10)
As they proved in the last few days with the senseless slaughter of innocent civilians, including a pregnant woman, Hamas is not a Palestinian group. It is an Iranian Islamic terror cell first and foremost and Palestinian second. Islamic terrorism is inspired by warped Islamic teachings. We can never get rid of it unless we defeat the twisted ideology behind it. As long as Israel exists and as long as there is a Jewish presence in Israel, there will be conflict. It doesn't matter what Israel does or what concessions it makes, none of it matters. Eventually, like any rabid dog, Hamas will have to be put down.
3. Netanyahu's Israel unsafer by the day
Marcel ,   Florida   (09.02.10)
The quislings of Israle surrender for everything but peace. No peace is coming with the Palestinians only death. Isaiah 28:14-22
4. This government made it possible !
Jaacov Baumann   (09.02.10)
5. Where have we heard this song before?
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (09.02.10)
PM Rabin, I mean Bibi will do anything to please the moron in the White House.
6. What Bibi Should Do
Dallas ,   Canada   (09.02.10)
... in the middle of the meetings he should say 'excuse me for a moment', get on the phone, and tell his forces to: 1) Liberate Gaza 2) Formally annex Judea and Samaria 3) Obtain Oaths of Allegiance from all within Israel, and deport the rest. Enough is enough is enough. To play out this ridiculous international charade of "peace talks" while ignoring several elephants in one small room is willful negligence at best and pathological insanity at worst. The world condemns Israel anyway, another few weeks of condemnation won't make any difference.
7. Hamas has declared war, Obama needs to bless any IDF replies
Dr. L. Brnd ,   San Diego, USA   (09.02.10)
Moment of truth for Obama, either he puts his money where his mouth is on his claimed "unshakeable support for Israel's security", or he's proven a liar. IDF needs to blast the Hamas leadership and infrastructure IN GAZA ordering these attacks, including cutting off all power and fuel, stopping all construction materials and cutting goods flow back to pre-flotilla levels to undercut Hamas rule. Obama and Abbas have to publically go along with this hard-line defense talks are to continue - after all, Hamas opposes talks, so hitting them HARD can't possibly upset talks. Recall that talks ended in Dec 2008 because Abbas wanted to show "solidarity" with Hamas in its rocket war against Israel. If either Obama or Abbas objects in the slightest to Israel's all-out response to Hamas' new warfare, talk for a PA state are pointless, and Obama and Abbas will be exposed as liars. All-out measures to protect Israel from Hamas attack during talks are a perfect test of Obama and Abbas.
Mark from Georgia ,   USA   (09.02.10)
I'll tell you, with such a courageous ambush, maybe this time, besides the "victory parade", medals of honor should also be awarded. After all it take great courage to commit a drive-by shooting, all the drug dealers here in the U.S., do it all the time, in their turf wars. When will the outrage come? Where are all the Arab leaders calling for UN investigations, International criminal courts, warrants for the arrest of visiting Palestinian leaders. How about world pressure put on Syria, to arrest K. Marshaal who is in Syria. Then hand him over the the Israeli authorities for trial. Oh wait, there is that double standard thing again. Arab leaders can order unprovoked attacks on unarmed Jewish civilians, and murder them, but it's OK. But a terrorist (I mean peace activist) can stage an premeditated attack on the IDF, during a legal military blockade, and so far, what do we have? 1) a UN investigation 2) a traitor MK from Israel, calling for second UN investigation 3) plus an Israeli investigation and 4) call for charges against Israel to brought to the International court. Now Hamas: 1) has killed 4 civilians, including one pregnant women 2) Claims from Hamas it's just one in a string of planned attacks 3) A second attack, premeditated murder, wounding 2 more civilians Yet, as I predicted, there is NO outrage from the same Arab leaders and anti-Israel crowd, that jumps on Israel for some pictures. Or if they sneeze. What else can be said, hopefully the world gets it. But I have my doubts, I'll wait for excuses, to justify unprovoked attacks and murder by Hamas. I'll make another prediction, any response from Israel, and they will be accused of using "disproportional force", my old favorite.
9. hey Bibi,why don't you dismantel some more checkpoints
chaim.s ,   brooklyn ny   (09.02.10)
citizens of Israel,you are being sacrificed on the altar of criminaly insane leftis'm,you have a choice,either you rise up and get rid of this traitorous government or die
10. victims of the talks
Matthias ,   Munich, Germany   (09.02.10)
I wonder how many innocent victims Bibi will tolerate for this talks. He should come back soon. When you ask this question to B. Hussein I am sure the answer be: How many Jews are in Israel...
11. Settlers are welcome to stay in the Palestinian State.
Palestinian   (09.02.10)
12. A forewarning
josh   (09.02.10)
This and yesterdays incident is a forewarning of what could come and worse without proper security arrangements in the west bank
13. #11
Jane   (09.02.10)
What Palestinian state? At the rate you're going this week - not to mention the last 100 years - there will never be such an entity.
14. barak not livni is like olmert
alexi   (09.02.10)
barak offered concessions at camp david and israelis died on the west bank to which barak did nothing. He stood by frozen by fear. Now he shoots off his big mouth offering concession and more israelis are being killed and wounded. This, the author of paintball guns to the idf. What a lousy general he is!
15. "THOU SHALT NOT KILL" Exodus 20:13
mary for JEWS ,   Singapore   (09.02.10)
"THOU SHALT NOT KILL" Exodus 20:15 "He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death." Exodus 21:12 "And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life, Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot." Exodus 21:23-24 G-D will avenge the Jewish blood loss! PM Nathanyehu, bring this before Mr Obama, if he is a true christian, he will obey God's Law, and not pay lip-service only, he will understand why East Jerusalem, Golan Height... cannot be given to Pals, same thing will happen in Jerusalem,,,, toda, Ynet, pl post.
16. #2: A Terrorist By Any Other Name
emanon ,   USA   (09.02.10)
I don't care what you call them, but the arabs do not want peace with Israel. Do not make apologies for them or try to make distinctions. A terrorist by any name is still a terrorist.
17. roadblocks
aron ,   new york, usa   (09.02.10)
that's what happens when you start removing roadblocks...armed terrorists can operate freely
18. No doubt, the Palestinian Authority will condemn the attack
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (09.02.10)
as it did the one the day before, since "it does not serve Palestinian interests". Not a word about the lack of moralibeings, Jews; no condolences to the families and the orphans left behind, none! The implication of course is: it is OK to murder Jews but only when it serves the Palestinian interests. And these are the people Mr. Obama considers "moderate", the ones he has been trying to appease...!!
19. Al Aqsa martyrs brigade is not is Fatah!
JAy3 ,   Israel   (09.02.10)
20. #8 More heroic attacks
Rich   (09.02.10)
Oh sure, just like the IDF shooting pregnant women and children in Gaza. Just where do you religious freaks get off . Do you think that God created the universe just to serve you brainwashed Jews - get real, ditch your religion, and get a life where you can think and breathe..
21. The death squads include some of your Fatah peace partners.
Harry Wright ,   UK   (09.02.10)
It is a combined effort and they are playing games with your brains. These are just the precursors for something bigger. Just be alert and fully prepared for anything from the north, south and east. With 2 leaders outside the territory, fully occupied with Obama and his doomed peace talks, well that is an opportunity.
22. Open checkpoints = "The Window of opportunity" for shooting
Shalom   (09.02.10)
No doubt this is what Mitchell and Hillary meant by "Window of opportunity".
23. israel and the PA officials are behind these attacks
24. More BLOOD on Netanyahous hands!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Obama hussein ,   is a MUSLIM!!!!!!!!   (09.02.10)
25. Not one word from the Israeli elit
David ,   USA/ISRAEL/EGYPT   (09.02.10)
They must been passing candy in the streets of Tel Aviv. The actors who refused to preform in Ariel have a good reason not to do so now "whooo it's too dangerous to go there" deafening silence from the settlers haters. where is Meretz and Hadash???
26. PA officer says it was not a terror attack
Lioness ,   Israel   (09.02.10)
High level officer in the Palestinian Authority called the terror attack that killed 4 Israelis not a terror attack but a military operation. So you think you can make peace with this. They are also honoring terrorists that killed Israelis.
27. Take this in perspective
Jerrold Cohen ,   Seal Beach, USA   (09.02.10)
I do hope you in Israel see this as it is. For 67 years you have terrorized the Palestinians, killing them, jailing them, blowing up their homes, and taking their land. If the terrorism of this shooting is a pinky nail of a human being, Israeli terrorism against the Palestinians amounts to a full-grown tiger, very much alive.
28. wonder why Hamas tire itself !!
Salma ,   Palestine   (09.02.10)
Netanyahu does his best ....Direct talks will fail !
29. Recall that talks ended in Dec 2008
mick ,   nz wellington   (09.02.10)
"Recall that talks ended in Dec 2008 " when israel broke the truce . You must be a Doctor of tree surgery because to call for the collect punishment (death) of untried persons is against the Hypocrite oath . Who should have bombed Israel for their outrage in Gaza ? "A new UN report exposes a bit of misinformation peddled by the US and Israel and shatters the Zionist illusion that the Gaza war was legal. The report, prepared by human rights investigator Richard Falk, confirms that Tel Aviv was indeed the party that violated the Egyptian-brokered six-month truce in Gaza.""
30. who benefits
mick ,   nz wellington   (09.02.10)
* On April 12, 2002, at the same moment Secretary of State Colin Powell was meeting with Ariel Sharon, a suicide bombing occurred in Israel, killing 8 and injuring 22. * On May 10, 2002, at the same moment President Bush was meeting with Ariel Sharon, a suicide bombing occurred in Israel. * On June 11, 2003, on the same day Ariel Sharon visited the White House, a suicide bombing killed 17 and wounded 100 on a bus in Jerusalem. * On November 11, 2003, while the president of Italy was visiting the U.S., Italy suffered its greatest wartime casualties since WWII when 19 Italians were killed in Iraq. * On November 20, 2003, while President Bush was visiting Prime Minister Tony Blair in London, the British envoy to Istanbul was among 27 killed by a blast. * On November 30, 2003, while the president of Spain was visiting the U.S., seven Spanish intelligence officers were killed in Iraq. Who benefits ? Israel or Hamas ?
