1. The Russians are just re-affirming a
seadog1946 ,   Ong's Hat, NJ USA   (01.18.11)
prior recognition... no big deal.
2. Fire them!!!
Rachel ,   US   (01.18.11)
All those clowns in the Foreign Ministry who went on strike have done considerable damage to Israel. They should be shown the door.
3. Close S.American Russian Consulates
CloseJeruslmConsulat ,   china and israel   (01.18.11)
If so we should call our anbassador back and threaten to recognize all Russian claimed properties here as Israeli . Those who recognzise Palestine are also recognizing Jerusalem as theirs as well this is serious. The South American consuls should be asked to leave Jerusalem and concentrate their activities in Tel Aviv as well.
4. The only good thing here is the death of the 'piece' talks.
Lee ,   Manchester UK   (01.18.11)
this can only be a good thing for the Israelis. Soviets and latin Americans don't live or have to live in this region, at the end of the day the 'palestinians' have to recognise Israel the Jewish state before any new terror state on Israel's borders is created on Jewish soil. IT'S A MAD WORLD FULL OF DESPOTS LIKE PUTIN AND AHMADIJIHADI.
5. Another achievement for Lieberman, friend of Palestine..
Border Collie Misty ,   Carmiel, Israel   (01.18.11)
He and his stooge Ayalon do more damage to Israel than Hamas and Hizbollah together.
6. Israel Should back Chechneya
E ,   United States   (01.18.11)
Lets Play poiitics.
7. You had 20 years to make it right, but no...
Nour ,   One-State   (01.18.11)
settlements, land, and Eretz-Israel were to be acquired at any cost.... Well the cost is your unprecedented isolation. Even your best friend is sick of you. Now is it a surprise the BRIC countries recognize the fact that is Arab Palestine? The very idea of the Russian president visiting the Palestinian city of Jericho, bypassing Israel means we are now in business and things are rolling in the right direction....That is...away from the "negotiations" farce arbitrated by the US. What a joke both you and the Americans have become - a sour marriage anyway, to say the least.
8. Good news goes Straight to the Heart .
Salma ,   Palestine   (01.18.11)
A New split may occur in"Israel Beiteinu " because this happy news : ) Да здравствует Палестина. Long live Palestine.
9. Recognition?
Avishai ,   Tel Aviv   (01.18.11)
These countries that "recognizing palitine", do they realize that by doing so, they are promoting and legitimizing terrorism as a means of achieving ones goals? Do they not have their own terrorist organizations demanding things?
10. Ha Ha Ha
Hakim ,   Palestine   (01.18.11)

JUDAH THE LION   (01.18.11)
Good news goes Straight to the Heart,but bad news since 1988 till today after 23 years still you have NIET Palestine,and it goes straight to the heart and have heart attack. Darling Salma,there never been Palestine and IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN The world are playing with your tunes. AM ISRAEL HAI. LONG LIVE ISRAEL WITH JERUSALEM ITS CAPITAL.
15. Reaffirmation
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.18.11)
I'm not sure if there is an instance in history where a non-existent "nation" gets recognition once, let alone twice, but East Jerusalem as a capital? How does Medvedev propose to dislodge Israel? He can't suppress the rebellion in Chechnya, and he thinks he can take on Israel? Too, too funny!
16. Nour & Hakim
JUDAH THE LION   (01.18.11)
Nour you are mistaken not 20 years, it has been 63 years since we have LIBERATED ERETZ ISRAEL,and it has been 23 years since Russia recognise you.Where is ther state of Palestine? NIETO.Let the WHOLE WORLD to recognise you on piece of paper,but do not forget when you go to toilet remember to flash the paper. I feel sorry for the wasted ink.

19. Salma - #8
Kate ,   London, UK   (01.18.11)
How very appropriate that a non-existent terrorist nation should receive backing from the world's number one mafia state.
20. To: No. 10
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.18.11)
I'm right here. The question you SHOULD be asking is where have the Russians been since 1988, and why would you expect a different outcome in 2011 than you enjoyed in 1988? Here's a news flash: no one is going to invade Israel on behalf of a terrorist rabble. Trust me.
21. #11 wallah , FAKE salma
Salma ,   Palestine   (01.18.11)
If you're not impressed then why are you happy ?!?!?!
22. Salma,Hakim,Nour
Traditionally Russia always been on the sideof the Arabs.Thats fine,everyone have the right for their interest. All these stupid Palestinians which believe that we Jews are going to give away our HEART & SOUL THE HOLY LAND OF JERUSALEM,to the Arabs. Let the Palestinians get support as much as they want, but at the end of the day,they will get======= and they have to go back to their homeland in Arabia.
23. So where is this Palestine already? Talk is cheap.
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (01.18.11)
Russia recognized it 20 something years ago. So what? I must be missing something.
24. To: Avishai at No. 9
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.18.11)
I think they are in large measure counting on the fact that Israel will not relinquish Judea and Samaria, nor will Israel divide Jerusalem. What Israel really needs to do is simply to formally annex Judea and Samaria and repatriate its Arab residents -- who are Jordanian citizens -- to Jordan. Jordan is the real "Palestinian" state, anyway. All this stuff and nonsense about East Jerusalem as a capital? Who is anyone kidding? For that matter, I don't exactly see anyone undertaking a military option to unseat Israel. Russia cannot put down a simple uprising in Chechnya -- I don't see them being all that anxious to take on Israel, do you?
25. To: No. 7
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.18.11)
You've had seven decades to abandon your tactics of war and terrorism .... and now you think that you can simply turn around and put the toothpaste back into the tube? It doesn't work that way, ya'habibti. Of course, if you want to declare your "state," go ahead and declare your "state." The day after the modern State of Israel declared statehood, it was attacked by five Arab armies. Keep in mind that turnabout is fair play, and no one -- and I do mean no one -- will come to your aid if Israel decides to exercise a military option. No one. In fact, much of the world will breathe a huge sigh of relief. No one can stand you, not even your brother Arabs.
26. To: No. 13
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.18.11)
U.K. perhaps, but not likely. The U.S. -- never. The American people really don't like you. But you keep on dreaming your stupid dreams. Where have they gotten you in seventy years? And why would you think that anything has changed?
27. To: No. 12
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.18.11)
It is the ersatz "Palestinians" who stole Jewish land and Jewish identity. But no, I believe the poster at No. 3 is merely referring to closing consulates. You know, exactly as the United States did with all the Iranian consulates throughout the United States in 1979. Closed the Iranian embassy, too. I guess you rather conveniently forgot that, eh?
28. Sarah, it's called sanctions
Wissam ,   Palestine   (01.18.11)
And you will taste harsh economic and cultural sanctions. Why do you think that what worked with apartheid south Africa will not work with your ilk? Even world Jewry is getting tired of you!! Look how many US Jews (real Americans not like you) have disowned Zionism. Sarah, I suggest you give up Prozac and come visit the West Bank. A new reality is emerging and by September I will bet the clothes on my back that you will stop posting here. Defeated and speechless you will be. Arrogance an occupation come at a price my dear!
29. More money for terrorists means more terrorism!
David   (01.18.11)
30. # 15
Hakim ,   Palestine   (01.18.11)
Sarah, thanks for the good laughs... entirely at your expense, of course!
