1. It's called Samaria.
Akiva   (10.29.10)
2. No, it's called Eretz Cnaan
David ,   USA   (10.29.10)
Read the Torah
3. so what is their opinion?
Israeli   (10.29.10)
they see the facts on the ground, what do they think?
4. stop negative writing about places they've never seen
David P. ,   Capitola, CA   (10.29.10)
that would be a first
5. Notice Tom Friedman is missing? Would hurt his writing
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (10.29.10)
Friedman would have a tough time continuing to write about his pet peeve - the "radical settlers". Friedman hasn't been to a "settlement" in years, has probably never set foot in Jerusalem's Gilo and Ramot neighborhoods (settlements that have to be destroyed, according to his definition) to see the "radical settlers" there. Out here in the high hills of Judea, nobody recalls seeing Friedman out here to interview us "radical settlers". So that's why Friedman wasn't there with the high mucky mucks from the NYT - it would give him facts that contradict his world view. So Friedman will continue to foam at the mouth every time he talks about "the radical settlers", and will have a hard time explaining just what percentage of "settlers" are "radical", simply because he doesn't know and apparently doesn't care.
6. Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes
Thomas ,   Dixieland USA   (10.29.10)
Latin phrase from Virgil's Aeneid means: "I fear the Greeks, even when bringing gifts". The arrival of the flagship of the American Leftist Jewish elite is a bad omen according to the Haruspex*. (*Roman priests who practiced divination from the entrails of animals killed in sacrifice.)
