5. Victims of Hamas terror, read this!
David ,   Hartford   (05.18.11)
Now that Hamas and the PA are a single political entity again, bring legal action against the PA for monetary damages for loss of life, property, and income due to the hundreds of terror attacks over the years. Bankrupt the stinking organization. Make them sell all their property to pay for the damage they've caused. All the moronic donors who have poured billions of dollars into the PA should see their funds used to pay for the damages their funding has caused. Lawyers should be lining up to go after them. Maybe a class-action will work. For the thousands of Israelis injured and killed, for the lifetime expenses of those maimed, I'm sure 5 billion dollars is good place to start. If the Klan could be shut down in the USA by Morris Dees, Hamas can be shut down (and the PA cleaned up) by some good Israeli lawyers.
6. Zahar
Sammy ,   Newcastle   (05.18.11)

Adam ,   Golan Heights Israel   (05.18.11)
Israel insists: No talks with hammas terror gang.
Mark from Georgia ,   USA   (05.18.11)
Well Thomas Friedman, what do say now, care to retract your bizarre opinion piece. Your bias writings are based on emotion, not facts on the ground. Your accusation the BiBi "fools nobody" are now obviously silly, aren't they? This is the second time this week that Mahmoud al-Zahar has stated the Hamas position. How much clearer can it be said. Just 4 days ago he stated he would NOT ever give up the "right of return", why? Because in his mind, he said it would "forfeit the right of the "next generation" to take back "ALL" the lands of Palestine. Another words to destroy Israel at a later date! Now he states that "resistance" the Arab euphemism for "terrorism" and "Violence" is the only way, NO to negotiations with Israel only terrorism, I'll never understand the fantasy of the left, and why they choose to risk Jewish life in Israel for a dream that the Arabs clearly reject. The Arabs do so often, and weekly, how much proof is needed?
11. Oil Money and Greed
Eric ,   Milwaukee USA   (05.18.11)
As longs as the arabs have oil, countries and politicians will bend over back wards for them. And history has shown that blaming the Jews comes easy to the world. The only thing keeping some of these politicians from selling all Jews and Israel down the river is the Diaspora and fear of not getting reelected. Support the Diaspora that supports Israel.
12. The Fatakh/Khamas truce.
Eliyahu Konn ,   Powell, OH   (05.18.11)
An amalgamation of deceit.
13. al-Zahar makes it clear
YaĆ«lle Schlichting ,   Raubling Germany   (05.18.11)
Jews must be united! +++ This dissonant cacophony of voices whose only intent is to be heard will not help. +++ There is one goal for all of us: Make clear to the western do-gooders that their good intentions are not necessarily good. +++ And become clear ourselves, that we all are required to follow the same direction. +++ It must be clear what happens, if a group of men crosses the border illegally. No discussion! The politicians must agree on a clear agenda for negotiations. The fact, that Hamas doesn't want to negotiate anyway, has nothing to do with it.
14. #3 How many times Abu Mazen tried showing maps?
Muayyad ,   Palestine   (05.18.11)
How many times has the farcical PA produced maps and offers, sealed in brown envelopes, offered to then declined by Israeli officials who even refused to open them !? You fool nobody. Finally the Palestinian people are finding the strength WITHIN and emboldened universal support...against your lies.
15. Here's the key -
EZ   (05.18.11)
"We disagree partially with bin Laden's way, and with the fact that he took his battle to the US and Europe..." Why does he disagree with taking the battle to the US and Europe? Didn't the US invade Muslim lands in 1991 and again in 2001, 2003? Aren't US bases all over the ME? Zahar is really saying that Osama took on more than he could handle. Beating up on Israel seemed like fair game but attacking the US seemed counterproductive. They don't disagree on substance just tactics. Someone should frame these words and send them to the EU and US State Dept in case anyone there is still confused.
16. the best israeli propaganda is to
Shai Moyal   (05.18.11)

18. David # 5
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (05.18.11)
The Klan wasn't living on welfare.
19. So what?
Salma ,   Palestine   (05.18.11)
90% of "Israeli's" do not want talk to us. Hamas is only 35 % of Palestinian People .
20. #13 Muayyad
Albrecht Klein ,   Germany   (05.18.11)
You want half of Israel now ("Palestine") and the rest later ("right of return" etc.). What do you expect?
21. To: No. 19
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (05.18.11)
That is because ninety percent of Israelis are tired of your lies and your violence. Soon you are going to be some other country's problem; never fear.
22. dead man talking!!!!!!!
23. Insist all you want to...its entertaining.
Ypip ,   Canada   (05.19.11)
24. He isn't We. He's a liar and murderer
Ypip ,   Canada   (05.19.11)
He espouses rubbish when its convenient for 'his' precious estate
25. 10-he's as clear as Dainty bowl over the expiry date.
Ypip ,   Canada   (05.19.11)
26. From the beginning, I totally agree.
Ypip ,   Canada   (05.19.11)
27. Confusing statements messages RIGHT ???
M.S. ,   mpls america   (05.22.11)
By making confusing politicial statements messages some politicians believe they gain politicial power certainly this seems to be the case because it seems to always exactly repeat the same position whatever the H*ll that is but then I think like a human not like a Jack Ass Mule Donkey can I have only two 2 legs no not four 4 legs but then they understand themselfs and or do they and or do they merely know how to repeat a statement message they are told to make in any case not even Einstein knows what Arab politicial leaders say and or if he does I sure as H*ll do no not being only human alas though they can run circles around Israel this way and or at least they can run circles around me though that is not saying much RIGHT ??? Thank You... M. S.
