and you are so stupid because american money go to a lot of countries and you disagree just with the money going to israel : you are an antisemite
37. @Brian Cohen....RE: The ignorant Palestinian Lovers
Mrs Leigh ,   USA   (12.22.10)
Brian....I am sorry to inform you but which Americans have Palestinians murdered? I think you are confused as to how many Americans have been murdered by Israel... (Including but not limited to:) Rachel Corrie James Miller Tom Hurndall and the list goes on. Also look up Brian Avery, Tristan Anderson and Emily Henochowicz who were lucky enough to survive to tell their stories. Please get your facts straight.
38. US Gov. views settlements illegal, so why allow tax exempt?
Bloodyscot ,   Dallas, Texas   (12.22.10)
To raise or give money in US for illegal activities abroad is a crime under US laws,, as many Hamas backed charities have learned. If US finds that a Jewish charity is giving money to illegal activities like possible settlements, then it could freeze its funds and tax exempt status revoked but US Gov. has turned a blind eye on this so far due to political pressure from Jewish groups and their lobbies. Proving were the money goes it not always easy, while getting listed as terrorist group like Hamas makes it far easier to shut it down.
39. Pure lies and racism by these fascists!
Don Rosenberg ,   Palatine USA   (12.22.10)
These are anti-semitic bigots who mask around as pro-pal... terrorists Israel is the country of the Jews and these bigots can go to HELL with their G-D. The USA should stop giving bribe money to muslims countries that hate us and promote terrorism. Jews in Seattle picket these morons.

41.  # 32 Rocket hit kindergarten
Joav ,   Germany   (12.22.10)
Yeah you right, but that was jewish kindergarten one and that not care no one in the wolrd. If that was a arabic kindergarten than the UN would talking about this disgusting zionist act. The fact is, no one care about jewish blood. The moslems are the new NAZIS of our days. Here in Europe must of the extrem right parties suppourt the arabs,the "lefts" also. We should not forget our history and stay strong. Am Israei Chai!
42. this is old news
anon ,   Johannesburg   (12.22.10)
Firstly, this is old news, and thousands of letters andd e-mails have already been sent to local municipal and metro bus company. It looks as if the racist ad campain will not go through. About the Pal PR... Its very easy to pay for an advert and cause problems. Its not that their PR is good... Its just that they are so racist in their wording that is the diff. Lastly, and most importantly. The 3billion Israel gets MUST be stoped. Israel does NOT need this money, and the strings that comes attached to it arte horid. This money goes to buy only US made products. Thus, Israel must ask the US to stop with the handout... Cause Israel does not need it. And anyways... The 3billion is more of a stimulas for the US econmy and is a burden on Israeli export oppertunity. Israel and the US are friends... Money should not be involved in friendship.
43. #5, Exactly! Ironic too, b/c Seattle is a military city
Mike ,   Atlanta USA   (12.22.10)
Lots of Air Force as well as Boeing personnel. But then again, lots of hippies too.
44. Easy to counter
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.22.10)
There are two sides to every story. The Jewish community in Seattle should take out an ad which depicts the aftermath of a suicide bombing. A picture is worth a thousand words.
45. To: No. 6
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.22.10)
A little late in the day for your preachy blather. We all know what you really think. Besides, peace will come soon enough; your days in Eretz Israel are numbered.
46. To: No. 8
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.22.10)
What about U.S. foreign aid to the "Palestine" Authority? Or Jordan? Or Egypt? Or anywhere else in the world, for that matter? Besides, the U.S. benefits from foreign aid to Israel. In case you are unaware (and you obviously are), U.S. aid to Israel takes three forms: 1. A small amount in the form of an interest-bearing cash loan. Only two countries in the world have a perfect repayment record. One is Finland. The other is Israel. 2. A somewhat larger amount in the form of military credits. Those military credits must be spent in the United States (for which I am certain employees in the U.S. military-industrial complex are QUITE grateful) and the contracts carry a back-end provision requiring Israel to share any improvements with the American manufacturer. These improvements have been legion and they have all been shared. 3. By far and away the largest portion of aid comes in the form of joint-venture investment capital. Do you carry a mobile phone? You have Israel to thank (joint venture with Motorola). Are you grateful for facial recognition software, in use in every airport and capable of spotting terrorists and other undesirables passing through the United States? That resulted from a U.S. - Israel joint venture. Mass spectrometry? You guessed it! Ever needed an MRI or a CAT scan? Yup, products of still another U.S. - Israel joint venture. Anyone among those you hold close ever need chemotherapy (G-d forbid)? Over 50 percent of the chemotherapy protocols in use throughout the world were developed in Rehovot. And I've listed just a few -- there are many, many more, all of which accrue to the benefit of the United States taxpayers. The United States spends trillions of dollars in foreign aid. Can you name any benefit to the American people from any country besides Israel? Right. That's what I thought.
47. seattle ad
J.K. ,   Brooklyn USA   (12.22.10)
Why should the american people pay attention to palestinian propaganda ?,the palestinians are an enemy of America they celebrated the fall of the towers on islamic 11,they love binladen,Hamas,Hizbolla,the palestinians in the USA finance Hamas,the palestinians in the USA opposed the oslo agreements, the palestinians start the fire and than cry and point fingers.
48. # 37
Birdi ,   Israel   (12.22.10)
Oh but Brian is 100% correct. Check out this link to see how many Americans were murdered by Palestinian terrorists & I suggest that you get your facts straight before you post here.
49. # 38
Birdi ,   Israel   (12.22.10)
Nope settlements are not viewed as illegal, they are viewed as disputed. A great difference.
50. #41 a correction
Israel Israeli ,   Tel Aviv   (12.22.10)
What you said about the Muslims is wrong. In World War II, the Nazis gave the extremist Muslims under Haj Amin Al Husseini money and moral support against the Jews of the Israel. The "new Nazis" as you call them, are the people who now give the extremist Muslims money and moral support against the Jews of Israel.
51. I live in illegal settlement, US taxes fund me too
Bloodyscot ,   Dallas, Texas   (12.22.10)
I will never give up on what I stole from Mexico and on top of that the idiots in Washington DC send me tax money to build and develop it. I know this because I am the Best World Affairs Expert in Training. My Tex-Mex Burrito Crystal Ball still informs me Obama reelected and it is always right even if Obama will not be reelected. It is all true, I only report the way I see it with 100/100 vision through Al Jazeera colored glasses 8000 miles away from Middle East. BLOODYTHIRSTY SCOT GREATEST EXPERT OF TEX-MEX BURRITOS, ENCHILADAS, FAJITAS, MIDDLE EAST, FAR EAST AND NOW HUMAN RIGHTS IN MUSLIM COUNTRIES!!!!!! DALLAS, TEXAS

You wouldn't know the truth if it got up and bit you in the @$$. To wit:,2933,34187,00.html
53. "Equality"
Daniel ,   USA   (12.22.10)
Whenever a leftist/progressive/statist/planner starts talking about "Equal Rights", tell them to read FA Hayek. It might break an otherwise impervious brainwashed exoskeleton. They are advocating coercive control and gov't power to push their own warped moral vision on other people. It’s a buzz word used to mask an agenda with blue skies and utopian dreams. Mandating an equal outcome is the polar opposite of equality as our founders intended.
54. To: No. 10
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.22.10)
"We Americans?" Prettty liberal usage of the word "we." Inaccurate, too. I am American, and you certainly do not speak for me. Nor do you speak for tens of millions of other Americans. Why not just admit that you are some heavily tattooed uneducated skinhead who speaks for no one but himself? Actually -- no need. We've figured it out already.
55. As someone who lived 11 years in Seattle..
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (12.22.10)
I can tell you it is a very left leaning city, but I never saw any vicious or rabid anti-semitism. You have to assume a city with the second largest gay population in the US is going to be to a certain degree "pro-pal"
56. #6 never count your chicks before the hatch
rachel ,   usa   (12.22.10)
57. more low propaganda by the association of fascist left ....
rachel ,   usa   (12.22.10)
the fascist right and muslims .More pallywood .....
58. Former Seattle Resident
Ron ,   OC, USA   (12.22.10)
Plenty of people will chafe under this. The Arab community in Seattle is not well thought of, never has been. And, doesn't the Jewish community have the right to pay 1,800 bucks to protest Pal bombing of busses in Israel, Spain and London. I'll donate.
59. #45
Nour ,   One-State   (12.22.10)
Our days are numbered? Is that a threat Sarah? Easy for you to unleash mouth diahrea all the way from New York. I know people like you. All talk, no cojones. You want us gone, why don't you try that "baby". Otherwise quit your juvenile threats.
60. I call on to the wealthy Jews of Seattle
David Israel ,   New York, USA   (12.22.10)
There are some very wealthy Jewish families in Seattle such as the Benaroya's who donated millions of dollars to build a theater and cultural center. I call on them to counter this add with an add depicting the Hamas rockets and their victims such as the two Israeli babies Dorit Benisian and Yuval Abebeh killed by these rockets.
